Tee it up for junior golf at SpeedGolf Tournament

I would like to invite everyone to the first-ever SpeedGolf Tournament in Myrtle Beach. SpeedGolf is a newer concept of golf where you run and play as fast as you can. Your SpeedGolf score is determined by the  minutes + strokes during your round. This is a two-person team effort, so you can partner up with a friend and run and play together. We will have lots of prizes to the top six teams for nine-... 

Blowing the whistle on all the Madness

The college basketball season comes to a close tonight with the most unlikely of matchups – No. 7 Connecticut vs. No. 8 Kentucky. Pretty unbelievable if you are among the millions who won’t be receiving a billion-dollar check from Warren Buffett after your bracket was busted before the start of the Not-So Sweet 16. But if you really think about, chaos is really the only thing that makes... 

Spring and summer are the seasons of sports injuries

For many people spring and summer mean one thing—time to get off of the couch and enjoy the sunshine. Many of us like to spend that time actively, whether hitting the beach for a game of volleyball, lacing up the running shoes  for a jog, or cleats for a game of softball.  We love to humble ourselves on one of our many golf courses, or challenge a friend in a tennis match for bragging rights. ... 

They ought to Quidditch while they’re still ahead

Over 70 teams from 3 countries are in North Myrtle Beach this weekend for the International Quidditch Association World Cup VII. Let me put that in a different perspective, nearly 1700 college kids are riding around on brooms, trying their best to find a snitch. The chasers are running around with a quaffle, and the beaters are running around with bludgers. Got all that? Good. While hanging out at... 

It’s a good time to be a self-loathing Gamecock fan

Clemson, a series that normally trends the opposite way. Head ball coach Steve Spurrier made sure to remind Tiger fans of that fact on New Year’s Day after winning the Capital One Bowl, taking some of the luster off Clemson’s impending Orange Bowl victory. The South Carolina baseball team just completed a three-game sweep of the Tigers on the diamond to earn the No. 1 spot in the national... 

We’ve waited 21 years for this. Tonight, we are back!

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are set to play in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament tonight at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC. It’s a night that we’ve been waiting on for 21 years. When Coastal last visited the tournament, the expectations were high that Coastal would be back, and soon. With a new name, new colors, and a team that would return for the 1994 season, things looked promising...

Winter Dull-ympics offer little relief for real sports fans

I love sports – almost all of them. During my 20-plus year sportswriting career and 40-ahem year life, I’ve either played it, watched it, covered it or gained an appreciation for it even if I’m not a fan. I’ve seen people play basketball on donkey back; I’ve attended a camel race in the Middle East; and I’ve witnessed a big crowd watch in anticipation while wagering... 

Five simple stretches to improve your golf game

Have you ever noticed the first few holes of a round of golf seem the hardest to play? If you answered ‘yes’ to this question, then you may need to take more time to stretch prior to your next round. Stretching is a crucial component to any physical activity.  Golf is no different.  Stretching awakens the muscles, loosens the tendons and ligaments and elongates the muscles to create elasticity... 

Ten reasons to watch Broncos-Seahawks in Super Bowl

Aside from the obvious matchup between the Denver Broncos’ No. 1 offense vs. the Seattle Seahawks’ No. 1 defense, here are the top 10 reasons to watch this year’s Super Bowl: 1)  Football – First and foremost, it is just the biggest football game on the planet that happens only once a year; plus did I mention that it was football! 2) Two words – Broncos/Seahawks: Just to see...
