Phil Mickelson: True Gentleman Golfer

Golf is supposed to be the gentleman’s game – a game of etiquette and integrity where players enforce their own penalties and report their own scores and act with decorum while on the course.

The Well-Met Gentleman’s Code is Up

The first draft of a perpetual document is up now – the Well-Met Gentleman’s code. My four basic rules with a brief description are selected and for each I have compiled just the beginning of lists of quotes and references on practicing each one – there are far wiser people than me that we can … Continue reading

New Way to Be Green for St. Pat’s

St. Patrick’s Day is a pretty manly holiday when you think about it. Go outside on a cold Spring day, drink lots of beer and Irish liquor, eat manly Irish food (no one ever accused corned beef and hash of being frou-frou), maybe even wear a kilt. Well, since it is manly – let’s make … Continue reading
