  2. Wearing a headband playing golf

    I've started wearing a headband while playing golf as I really don't like to wear a hat when I play. What are your thoughts on sporting a headband? The other guys on my golf team haven't taken to it very well. It is sort of similar to Pelle Edberg's but it's made for tennis.

    I got lucky again and went thru the second half of the season without a loss. I wound up winning both halfs in my flight with only one loss in match play all year. I peaked at the right time cause my opponent shot a 36 on the last night and I beat him while shooting a 32.....with 2 bogies on the...

    If you could play 18 holes with any golfer in the world, who would you golf with? I would bet that several years ago Tiger would have been the unanimous choice... Who would you pick now? Times have changed and Tiger no longer has the same appeal... So I am curious to know, who would it be?
