During the summer, Archbishop Spalding senior golfer Micaa' Thomas said getting the opportunity to compete in the 2014 Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California in September was "a dream come true.

The Golf Channel named it "The Shot of the Day" and she was interviewed following the round.

OCEAN CITY -- First there was God's gift, the beach and ocean. Then hotels. Restaurants. And a resort city began to draw multitudes for the appeal of its sun, surf and sand. Now Ocean City is directing its marketing appeal to golfers everywhere. The timing is right.Of the $1 million the city of Ocean City appropriated for advertising/promotion in 1992, approximately one-third is being spent statewide, regionally and nationally on efforts to create interest in golf travel packages. Such a direct approach wasn't possible in the past because there weren't adequate places to play.

Golfers like to tell stories, and the one about Michael Newstead's accident spread across the fairway and to the emergency room even before he got there, picking up an embellishment here and there.Contrary to rumors, a golf ball did not lodge in his leg. Nor did it go through it. Nor was he hit with a club by another golfer.But it was indeed an unusual accident that befell Mr. Newstead on Saturday at the Oakmont Green course in Hampstead.He turned to watch a member of his foursome take a second shot, and the ball rocketed 35 yards toward his shin so fast and hard, it broke both of the long bones.

Forget about the sand trap by the 16th green at Baltimore's Mount Pleasant Golf Course. The biggest hazard yesterday was the guy behind the cedar tree with a gun.The youth emerged from behind the tree about 4:10 p.m. and held up a threesome of golfers -- among them columnist and vehement Baltimore critic Blair Lee IV -- in the second robbery on a municipal golf course in the last week."

As an example of the good things that can evolve from sports, turn your attention to an organization known as the Golfers' Charitable Association. It's on the way to making its second million dollars -- which, like the first million, will go to humane causes.This is the 25th anniversary of the group that was formed for the purpose of supporting professional golf in Baltimore but, at the same time, donates substantial revenues to hospitals, educational and rehabilitation institutions. The members allow themselves the enjoyment of being involved in golf, but the scorecard adds up to an immense profit for charity.

THE WAY Joseph Weiner tells it, the year was 1998 and he figured he was playing his last round of golf - ever, and quite delightedly, thank you - having broken his driver and three-wood in anger during an earlier match. "I hated the game - hated it," he said. That might sound strange for a guy who has just opened a new business - in golf. But listen to his story. So this itchy, impatient fellow began this final round with friends at Hobbit's Glen in Columbia having to tee off with a 7-wood (which for you non-golfers is something of a geezer club that, on a good day, will permit a weak, scattershot hitter to send the ball maybe 180 yards or so out there, somewhere)

CHICAGO -- If you knew someone who could cure your slice, help you plan your Myrtle Beach vacation and get you Jack Nicklaus' autograph, you'd drop your 3-iron and rejoice.That said, is there any doubt why golf sites on the Internet are so popular?With no more than a computer, modem and sliver of cyber-literacy, every golf wish you ever had can be fulfilled -- except acing the 12th at Augusta.There are, by some estimates, more than 3,500 golf-related sites on the Internet. And they are being consumed by golfers at a pace sprint-player George Bush would be proud of.The GolfWeb site received an astonishing 1.5 million hits on the Friday of Masters weekend in April, although that number represents the total number of screens visited, not the number of visitors.

"What doing?" If you sent that text message to Daryl Dixon and Beth Greene, this week's episode of "The Walking Dead" would have adequately answered your sparsely worded query. Rather than sending a ridiculously long Snap Chat video response, Daryl and Beth served as the sole protagonists in Sunday night's episode, "Still". These episode titles have become more and more clever, and this one refers to the moonshine house that Daryl and Beth stumble upon. (Daryl found it earlier with Michonne, did you know?

Like professional athletes who get ready for their respective seasons in training camp, weekend golfers prep their games in the offseason. Some work out feverishly doing golf-specific exercises. Others take lessons to hone their swings. And more than a few simply go out and take their whacks on the driving range. Jim Kardash, who has owned and operated the Arundel Golf Park in Glen Burnie since 2004, said golfers run the gamut when it comes to conditioning their bodies - and their minds - for a game that takes its toll physically and mentally.
