My professional career in sports began in 1991 when I went to work for KSFO Radio in San Francisco as a sports reporter. I covered all Bay Area sports for three years before moving to Las Vegas to work for a national network, SportsFan Radio Network. In Las Vegas I was introduced to sports wagering front and center, while producing a national football show with Dave Cokin. Frequent contributors to our show were Dr. Bob Stoll, Marc Lawrence, Jim Feist, and Tom Scott. I cut my teeth here in the science of handicapping - learning, listening, talking, and becoming good friends with all of these professionals. The first wager I placed in Las Vegas was a 25-1 winner on Thunder Gulch in The Kentucky Derby. I left radio for the golf business and for 21-years I have been making tee times and running golf tournaments for visitors to Las Vegas, www.LVTeeTimes.com In 2011, I captained the 4-person team of Sans Souci and won The Las Vegas Hilton NFL SuperContest. We set the record for the highest winning percentage in the history of the contest at 72.5%. Since winning The SuperContest, I have used my passion for both golf and football, to marry my hobbies with my profession. In doing so, I came up with the idea for a SuperContest Weekend and golf tournament to kick off the football season and the Westgate SuperContest. I now appear regularly on radio stations across the country to handicap golf events, NFL football, and appear weekly with Ken Thomson on SportsXRadio. I was a semi-finalist in The EOG 10K Handicapping Challenge in 2012, I am a back to back runner up in The Gaming Today Brawl For It All in 2013 and 2014, and am in my 12th year of competing in The Westgate SuperContest.

The Final Cut

With last week’s PGA Championship being “Glory’s Last Shot,” The Wyndham Championship too is a last chance effort as golfers have only this week left to qualify for The FedEx Cup Playoffs and earn a shot at the $10-Million Dollar first prize. We remain in the state of North Carolina this week on The PGA…

Les Brers in A Major

It is that time again in the golf season in which we like to refer to this week’s event with the catchy phrase, “Glory’s Last Shot.” A great tagline that the TV Networks were asked by The PGA Tour to ditch a few years ago and have since changed to “The Season’s Final Major.” Political…

Teeing Off vs. The World

The World Golf Championship series has been a wonderful addition to the golf schedule in my opinion. You have the four Major Championships. You have The PLAYERS.. and then you have some other big, non-Major events like Riviera, Torrey Pines, and The Memorial.. but the WGC events give us four tournaments a year with limited,…

Across The Pond

Many a baseball lineup feature its best player batting third. Hitting third in the order of Golf’s Major Championships is The Open and it too is considered the very best by many. It hardly seems that it has been a year now since we witnessed the greatest golf duel in history when Phil Mickelson and…

Deere Today, Gone Tomorrow

The PGA Tour makes one of its proudest stops on the schedule this week and when it’s over, it’s off to Southport, England for the 3rd Major Championship of the golf season. In terms of star power, The John Deere Classic is no more attractive than what we’ve seen the last couple of weeks on…

“The 5th Major”

After another thrilling Masters back in April, The PGA Tour is heating up once again. It started with The Zurich Classic two weeks ago in New Orleans, tweaking the format and providing a very intriguing two person team play event. Last week, the excitement was provided by Eagle Point Golf Club for The Wells Fargo…

A Major Break in Hilton Head

The first Major Championship of the golf season has come and gone. Now it is down the road a piece from Augusta to Hilton Head, South Carolina as the PGA Tour visits beautiful Harbour Town Golf Links. It seems a bit difficult for both players and golf fans to come off of The Masters and…
