I just saw an infomercial for a putter making ridiculous claims about keeping the ball online. You see, it has little “domes” on the face, which are supposed to fit in the dimples of a golf ball, making the ball roll straighter. In other words, “give us your money, and we’ll feed you some horseshit.” But, the infomercial’s host is John Mahaffey, a guy who played the PGA Tour when I was a kid. I caught him here taking a pull from a Marlboro Light in the Champions’ Tour’s 2005 FedEx Kinko’s Classic, while doing on-course commentary for The Golf Channel. I always liked John. (Wow, I endorsed three corporate giants in one sentence.) The Tour could use some guys like him today.
