Horrendous conditions for Montana boys state AA golf championships in Great Falls Tuesday. #snow pic.twitter.com/xp0ZTvQ3ty
— Richard Ecke (@richard_ecke) October 8, 2019

THE MONTANA BOYS 2A HIGH SCHOOL GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP had some extra drama -- snow. As you can see above, the boys kept playing as the Meadow Lark Country Club in Great Falls went from green to white. Due to the snowy conditions, some chipped on the green. Others cleared a path to attempt a putt.

Richard Ecke shot the above footage that's making the rounds on social media and golf sites. (I saw the above clip on my Twitter feed.)

More from Ecke:

"I filmed it at 3:15 pm MDT Tuesday at the close of a two-day golf tournament at Meadow Lark Country Club, Gt Falls MT. The weather was fine Monday and...

BACK IN 2012 KEVIN NA was grinding on the golf course in the worst way. He was stuck. Na would stand over the ball and couldn't pull the trigger.

All the golf world witnessed it when Na found himself leading the 2012 Players Championship. It was excruciating to watch.

"[T]rust me ... I get ripped," Na said at the time. "A lot. I know ... TV, Twitter and fans are tired of me backing off. I understand people being frustrated with me backing off, but all I can tell you guys is, honestly, I'm trying. And it's hard for me, too. Just bear with me."

In 2014 Steve Williams, Adam Scott's caddie, approached Na and said, "I never want to see you play again."

But as ESPN's Bob Harig wrote, Na sped up his routine and "practically sprinted to his golf ball." He chased putts on their way to the hole. Things improved for Na on the golf course, the demons quieter if not silenced,...

IN A RECENT GOLFWORLD STORY, John Feinstein unpacked rumors about the future of U.S. Open venues and revealed the four American courses that are expected to host the U.S. Open once a decade or so.

"It's pretty clear that we love Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Oakmont and Shinnecock," United States Golf Association CEO Mike Davis said in the article.

"Those four meet all our criteria: They're great tests of golf, they set up logistically either very well or well enough, and—being honest—we're going to make money when we go there. We're a nonprofit, but the U.S. Open financially supports everything else we do—all our other championships and...

By John Coyne


Bestselling author John Coyne became a caddie at Midlothian Country Club near Chicago when he was 10 and oversaw the caddie yard as a teenager. Learn about his golf novels at JohnCoyneBooks.com.

ANYONE WHO GREW UP CADDYING (or playing golf) in greater Chicago in the 1940s and 1950s knew of Tam O'Shanter Country Club and its owner, George May.


May's great gift to professional golf was a cluster of tournaments he hosted: the All-American Open (1941–57), World Championship of Golf (1946–57), LPGA All-American Open (1943–57) and the World Championship (1948–57).


In 1953, television, for the first time, broadcasted for one hour the World Championship of Golf. The...

A THREE-year ban, for this! pic.twitter.com/O3HZPueY2s

BIO KIM, A FORMER PGA TOUR PLAYER, won the Korean Tour's DGB Financial Group Volvik Daegu Gyeongbuk Open this past weekend. Kim also topped the Korean Tour money list.

No matter.

Now Kim is suspended until 2022 for a bad moment during that final round. According to media reports (and as seen above), Kim waved his middle finger in the direction of the gallery after a cellphone chirped during his downswing.

By unanimous vote, the Korean Tour's action was swift and severe.

The tour said in a statement: "Kim Bi-o damaged the dignity of a golfer with etiquette violation and inappropriate behavior."

Here's Kim's act of contrition in front of the media, before the suspension was announced.

Gotta be one of the wildest stories of...​

LEARN THE INSPIRING GOLF STORY of C.T. Pan, the two-time first-team All-American from University of Washington who won the 2019 RBC Heritage, his first victory on the PGA Tour.

Carrying Pan's byline, the story is written as a first-person account. It begins in Taiwan:
We didn't have much when I was a kid. I was the youngest of six, and we had cousins living with us, too. There was so little room that I shared a bed with my parents and other siblings until I was a teenager. The only way I could play golf was by sneaking on our local course....​
