LAST FRIDAY I WAS THE GUEST on Friday Foursome, a popular weekly hangout of the Google+ Golf Community. Thanks to host Ricky Potts and Friday Foursome regulars Les and Jason for having me on the show.

If you're curious about how ARMCHAIR GOLF BLOG got started and led to a pair of golf books, you might enjoy listening. I was also asked about what's wrong with the U.S. Ryder Cup team and the state of golf, among other topics.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

American Masters: Bing Crosby Rediscovered premieres on Tuesday, December 2 at 8 p.m. (check local listings).

Crosby was an avid golfer and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. In 1937, he hosted the first National Pro-Am Golf Championship (a.k.a. the 'Crosby Clambake'), which is today's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The documentary features new interviews with Bing's son Nathaniel Crosby, who has an active career in the golf business, won the U.S. Amateur championship in 1981, and hosted and ran the Bing Crosby Pro-Am tournament after his father's death for several years. Nathaniel Crosby is also the former president of Nicklaus Golf and is currently pursuing a project that will cater to affluent golf connoisseurs.

Lydia Ko​
LYDIA KO, THE 17-YEAR-OLD PHENOM from New Zealand, made the biggest haul in the history of women's golf on Sunday, a $1.5 million payout from winning both the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship and topping the season-long Race to the CME Globe.

Ko fired a 68 in the final round and then dispatched Julieta Granada and Carlota Ciganda in a playoff.

The million-dollar bonus for winning the "Race" got Ko's attention.

"When I saw that $1 million in the box," she said, "I was like, 'Wow, I wonder who the winner of that will be?' It's amazing. I've never seen that much cash in one place before.

"This year has been awesome. Three wins, Rookie of the Year, it's a huge honor for me to be here in this position. I'm looking forward to what's coming up next...

(Charlie Sifford will receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom on November 24. This is from the archives.)

I knew what I was getting into when I chose golf. Hell, I knew I'd never get rich and famous. All the discrimination, the not being able to play where I deserved and wanted to play — in the end I didn't give a damn. I was made for a tough life, because I'm a tough man. And in the end I won; I got a lot of black people playing golf. That's good enough. If I had to do it over again, exactly the same way, I would.

− Charlie Sifford, Golf Digest, December 2006

A BLACK CADDIE FROM A POOR FAMILY in Charlotte, North Carolina, Charlie Sifford dared to play professional golf with white men. It was not a friendly game for Charlie. He endured open heckling, insults and who knows what...

PGA professional Lucas Cohen is passionate about teaching golf to kids.​

STANDING ON A SLIGHT RISE in front of the pro shop at New York Golf Park and gazing the length of the driving range, landscaped with yardage markers and scattered golf balls, I can see a handful of thoroughbreds grazing in the bright fall sunlight.

This is Columbia County, New York, and this 10-acre golf park is wedged between farmland and apple orchards. The only sound to disturb the rural setting is the whacking of practice balls. That, plus the steady cadence of instructions from the driving range pro, Lucas Cohen, who is pacing the swing stalls, offering encouragement and advice to a dozen...

Geoff Ogilvy​
LIKE HIM OR NOT, GEOFF OGILVY has often come across as thoughtful and unfiltered. In the December 2014 "My Shot," Ogilvy, tagged "The Thinker," covered a lot of ground. Following are three hand-picked excerpts.

On three-foot par putts:

STUBBORNNESS AND DETERMINATION really come into play on the three-foot putt for par. But when you face 50 of them a week in competition for six straight weeks, they begin to erode you. Over the course of a 30-year career, they beat you up. I don't take them lightly, even in practice, because I don't want to form bad habits. So I grind over every one of them. I yearn for the day when I retire and play...
