GOLF MIGHT NOT COME TO MIND when you think of Morocco. But for 15 golf professionals (and their families), Morocco was an amazing adventure that exceeded their expectations in almost every way this past December.

The trip lasted seven days and included five golf courses, as well as sightseeing and other activities.

"The weather is just exceptional," said one pro. "It's beautiful to play golf in the wintertime and short sleeves. And enjoy all the great stuff."

"All the golf courses we've seen in Morocco have been outstanding," said another pro, who was especially impressed with the architecture.

"I've never been so welcome to any place I've ever been to," said another participant, "and I've traveled extensively to play golf in different places. This has been the best so far."

Maybe I'll get to Morocco and see for myself. It might happen. I'll keep you posted.

I KNOW HIM AS THE ARTFUL GOLFER, who for many years documented his golf journey at a blog by the same name. And what a journey it has been. A disciple of Fred Shoemaker (Extraordinary Golf) and others, Richard experienced rapid improvement in this difficult game.

He shares some of his golf story below, including how he "called" his fourth ace on a California golf course in November 2013.



The Artful Golfer​
Approaching the age of 50, I took up the game of golf. Improvement came quickly, first breaking 80, then breaking par one year after increasing my play to twice per week. I lowered my handicap to 8 in my first year, 4...

BILL SCHEFT WANTS TO TELL YOU about his uncle, who happens to be Herbert Warren Wind, widely considered to be the dean of American golf writers. It's a good time to revisit Wind, who died in 2005. Open Road Media has released seven of Wind's titles as ebooks.

Wind, of course, was the legendary scribe who penned eloquent narratives for the New Yorker and Sports Illustrated, and who collaborated with golf legend Ben Hogan on Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf, the gold standard of golf instruction books. He was also the one who coined "Amen Corner," that crucial three-hole stretch on the back nine of Augusta...

IN 1937 FAMOUS CROONER BING CROSBY decided to get some friends together for a fun golf event that would also raise money for charity. He held the first event with about 60 players at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club in San Diego. Crosby donated $3,000 for the prize money. It was originally called the Bing Crosby Pro-Am, but many simply called it the Crosby Clambake. Sam Snead was the first winner.

The tournament was suspended in 1942 because of World War II. It was revived in 1947 at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Crosby was named honorary...

JUST WHEN IT LOOKED AS IF RICKIE FOWLER was poised for another victory, he stumbled on the way to the trophy ceremony at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

A bold player and closer, Fowler coughed up a two-stroke lead on the last two holes of regulation and was edged by Hideki Matsuyama in a sudden-death playoff that went four holes. It was the second PGA Tour title for the 23-year-old Japanese player, who has the look of a rising star.

"Rickie opened the door for me," Matsuyama said, "and I was able to walk through it."

"The hard part is having all my friends and family and grandpa and my dad who haven't seen me win," an emotional Fowler told the media.

Matsuyama added: "Surprised and sad that Rickie finished that way, but all I can do is my best. I was lucky to come out on top."

Next up is the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

(This is the first of what may be an occasional off-golf-topic piece because I want to share my other nonfiction writing with more interested readers. Thanks as always for following this blog.)


Rick Bragg​
One afternoon I saw my wife reading Southern Living.

"Hey, can I see that when you're done?" I asked.


Not because I wanted to read about porches and gardens, easy bedroom upgrades, or the South's hottest food towns. (Actually, I did take a peek at the food towns.) No, I wanted to read Rick Bragg's Southern Journal, on the last page.


I love Rick Bragg. The former New York Times reporter wrote a series of memoirs about his family and growing up poor in Alabama and Georgia. Bragg is a wonderful...
