As pointed out in an earlier Life on Tour story, Monday was spent travelling west from Miami along Florida Highway No. 14 and then north to Tampa Bay and the next stop on the 2014 PGA Tour.
However while our journey took us to the Miccosukee Indian Village we also stopped by at a Wildlife park where alligators were in plenty of abundance and just lazing in the hot sun right alongside the roadway at the Big Cypress Nature Preserve as you will see from the close-up photographs and video.
As well, ...
The day following the WGC – Cadillac Championship it was all roads to Tampa Bay and this week’s 2014 Valspar Championship at the superb Innisbrook Resort.
However the trip west from Miami on Florida Highway 41 took us right past the Missoscukee Indian Village.
The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida is a US Government recognised Native American tribe residing in Florida.
They were part of the Sweminole nation until the mid-20th century, when they organized as an independent tribe, ...
Near Honda Classic champion Russell Knox is Scottish to the core but then in a bizarre twist he could be eligible to represent the USA if he qualifies for the Ryder Cup.
Good friend and Sunday Post colleague, Doug Proctor has raised the possibility of the 28-year old Knox teeing-up in Tom Watson’s Gleneagles side should he qualify automatically.
Of course having grown up in Inverness Knox would be expected to play for Europe and that would also mean, as Doug rightfully pointed out, joining ...
Welshman Jamie Donaldson has been disgustingly labelled a ‘coward’ by a leading US sports magazine following an incident during the final round of the WGC – Cadillac Championship.
Alan Shipnuck is a well-respected golf writer for Sports Illustrated but the American has won no friends with his controversial comments.
Donaldson secured his best-ever finish in either a WGC or a Major Championship in finishing joint second to American Patrick Reed at Trump Doral in suburban Miami.
Stephen Gallacher has already arranged one practice round with fellow Scot and former Masters champion Sandy Lyle and is looking to book another with double Augusta winning Jose Maria Olazabal.
Gallacher’s finally confirmed his place in the season’s first Major with his best-ever Stateside finish with joint sixth in the WGC – Cadiallac Championship.
The Scot went to Miami lying 39th in the World Rankings and arrived home to Bathgate jumping two places to 37th and with that the assurance of ...
The US Open winning duo of Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell have warmly applauded the appointment of fellow Irishman Des Smyth and Scotland’s Sam Torrance as the initial two European Ryder Cup vice captains.
And key in the comments of both McIlroy and McDowell is the word ‘trust’ in that McGinley has chosen two players who are long-time good friends and that he can trust.
“I am a big fan of both of them, Des and Sam, and Sam’s always a guy I have enjoyed being with and ...
Welshman Jamie Donaldson has moved closer to making his Ryder Cup debut later this year despite left counting the costs of a final hole bogey in the WGC – Cadillac Championship in Miami.
Donaldson was just one shot behind eventual champion Patrick Reed heading to the final hole of the ‘Blue Monster’ course when he leaked his second into a greenside bunker before ending with a bogey five in a round of 70.
Reed, who went into the last day leading by two, also bogeyed the last but it was still ...
