It’s become the norm for some very high profile athletes to be provided a sponsorship exemption for a Web.com Tour event.  In fact, Steph Curry, who plays to a +0.7 handicap, participated in the Ellie Mae Classic, where he shot a pair of 74s and failed to make the cut.  Likewise, Tony Romo, who allegedly holds a +0.3 handicap, will be competing in …

Recapping 2017’s Golf Highlights

Eric Benzenberg Opinion Leave a Comment

2017 has been a wild year.  We’ve recently been very happy (Tiger Woods and the Hero World Challenge), but it’s been a long road (complete with the 45th President driving a golf cart across a green). But that’s okay, because now that 2017 is almost over, we can look forward to another year of health, happiness, and golf.  But before you …
