(NICHOLASVILLE, Ky) – Anyone who has ever tried to play the game of golf knows that it really is a good walk spoiled. Unless you’re the Golden Bear, or the Great White Shark, or the Big Easy, or the Walrus, or the King, you’ve undoubtedly been repeatedly traumatized by the ever-lurking water hazards, sand traps, and narrow fairways lining the links. Just like you, I’ve been there and done that. What I haven’t done yet is to cover a professional golf tournament—and all that’s about to change as the fourth annual Barbasol Championship rolls into Keene Trace Golf Club. It’ll be the first PGA TOUR tournament (excluding majors) to be held in Kentucky since the Kentucky Derby Open was played in Louisville from 1957-59. For those keeping score, that’s a long time ago—over a decade and a half before Tiger Woods was even born. Continue reading PGA Golf Returns to Kentucky—By John Huang

The battle of the Wildcats didn’t look like much in the first half as Kansas State led at halftime 33-29. To say the first half of this Sweet 16 match up was ugly, was a complete understatement. These Wildcats combined for 26 fouls as the men in the striped suits seem bent on controlling the game instead of letting both teams play a little. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander hit 11-of 12 free throws  in the half, if that tells you how ugly this was. No rhythm at all.  Continue reading A Mess in Atlanta, UK cannot take easy road provided to them
