Luke Donald Was Ratted Out By Masters Spectators

Englishman Luke Donald had a rough first round at the Masters, carding a 77 even before being notified of a two-stroke penalty for a bunker shot on nine.

Our Pimento Cheese Is Better Than Augusta National's

The Masters Tournament started yesterday (Go Tiger! ...oh, never mind.), and Bon Appétit's Adam Rapoport is chatting about Masters foods, and dammit, that's a perfectly good excuse to remind you that our pimento cheese karate-chops the shriveled, linen-suit-clad nards off the orange sludge they're serving at Augusta… » 4/11/14 1:39pm 4/11/14 1:39pm

The Masters Its Ownself

Dan Jenkins's His Ownself: A Semi-Memoir was published last week, which is as good an excuse as any to go spelunking through the back pages of one of our finest and funniest sportswriters.

Lindsey Vonn's Ex-Husband Gets All The Retweets

Could we have a name and face to go along with one of the key parties to the whole Tiger Woods drop shot scandal that dominated Saturday morning? Could it be that there is no fury like a Vonn scorned? Or is Thomas Vonn just a funny guy? » 4/14/13 10:56am 4/14/13 10:56am

Wait, what? Nick Faldo was stomping around The Golf Channel this morning basically calling for Tiger Woods's head.
