5 Of My Favorite Golf Websites



In case you didn’t notice, I really love to golf. I’m getting better and hope to pass the plateau of socially acceptable to really dangerous in the next year. I’m one of the fortunate ones in that I am more relaxed on the course than on the range. Off the tee, I can hit very well and stay in the fairway. Woohoo! My record drive is over 200 yards and I’ve done that more than once in the desert. No, I am not trying to brag – I’m the first one to tell you that I need help on my short game and my putting especially leaves a lot to be desired. Anyhoo…these are my favorite places to visit that have to deal with golf:

LPGA.com: I like to keep up on what is up in the world of women’s golf. Golf is one of the only sports that women athletes can make a respectable living at and I’m very interested in supporting it. Although I don’t always agree with their administration, I like to read about the players.

LorenaOchoa.com: She’s 5’6” and can hit the driver over 250 yards consistently. Being that I am 4 inches taller, my goal is to at least match her awesome ability in this respect (next would be to get my entire game in that direction). Besides that, I like her attitude and focus. She is definitely my favorite along with…

AnnikaSorenstam.com: Annika is nothing but a class act. She never talks a bunch of trash or acts like she’s far superior to anyone. Her calm demeanor makes some believe she’s a wet blanket. I think she’s just a focused professional. I aspire to have just half of the game she’s got and I’d be stoked!

GolfWRX.com: Call me biased if you want but I really enjoy the forums. I’ve made some new golf colleagues around the world and found a camaraderie that cannot be matched. There is definitely a community feel here, and it isn’t all a boys’ club. I’ve had a blast writing for them in the Bag Chatter section and learn more about the game every day. I can honestly say that being a part of the community has increased my dedication to the game.

Southern California Golf Guide: This site has literally hundreds of courses listed and reminds me that it will be some time before I can run out of local places to play. I highly recommend checking it out if you come to the area. Feel free to drop me a line if you need an opinion on a certain area.

What is your favorite golf website?

I also admire Annika for being calm and focused and not letting her talent get to her head.
