So far, on Golf Questions You’re Afraid to Ask, we’ve covered some of the fundamental principles of golf: we’ve learned its origins and history, important skills to know before hitting the links, some of the most basic terminology in the game— like the fade and the slice — and an introduction to equipment.

However, there is one critical element to the game we’ve neglected to discuss: proper dress etiquette and how to style oneself on the course.  To learn more about the matter, I spoke to Emily Haas — the resident-style expert for GOLF.com, and someone I personally trust in terms of crafting an excellent outfit for the course. You can see some of her work here and here.

If you need any more convincing about how necessary it is to look good when you

Why the renamed, reshaped Timpanogos Golf Club may become a model for golf courses around the country

PROVO — Handyman Mike Bate headed for his black Ford 150 pickup truck at 8 a.m. to go home. He’d been at the golf course all night sawing pieces of railroad ties for tee box markers.

This simple act by a guy with a sawzall tool and his all-nighter a week ago is symbolic of the work put into creating a new face and name at the old East Bay Golf Club. The course has endured the brunt of developmental hacks, scraps and scars since its inception in 1923, even before there was a Yankee Stadium in Gotham.

Provo golfers have been pulled like a yo-yo. Bounced like a pinball.

No more.

From now on, it will be known by its historical name, Timpanogos Golf Club, and the facility is now a state-of-the art golf billboard reflecting the most dominating geographical feature in Utah Valley. It also provides a full

Alum Candice Walker added to Loyola women’s basketball staff; Tom Pierce named executive director of Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation

Candice Walker, a Loyola Maryland graduate who played in 117 games during her career with the Greyhounds, is returning to her alma mater as an assistant coach with the women’s basketball team.

A Baltimore native who prepped at Towson Catholic High School and was an All-Metro honoree by The Baltimore Sun in 2007, Walker has spent the last six seasons at the University of Massachusetts where she was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.

Last year, Walker was a recipient of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association’s prestigious Thirty Under 30 Award, Marriott Bonvoy & Morgan Stanley Global Sports, an honor that recognizes up-and-coming coaches at all levels of women’s basketball.

“While it is always rewarding to see a former player choose to go into coaching it is special when they return to their alma mater, and I am ecstatic to welcome Candice back to Loyola,” Loyola head coach Joe Logan

Tour pro has to delay start of wedding week when he nearly wins tournament | Golf World

Nothing ever goes entirely as scheduled the week of your wedding. But for Kevin Dougherty, set to tie the knot this coming Saturday in California, things got off to a (happily) unexpected start.

The 29-year-old Korn Ferry Tour pro, who hadn’t seen his fiancé in two months while competing on tour, was supposed to be on a 5:30 p.m. flight from Georgia back home on Sunday after wrapping up play at the Savannah Championship. Except that he had to delay his plans when he found himself leading the tournament late into Sunday.

Dougherty started the final round one stroke back of 54-hole leader Evan Harmeling, but was five under through the first 15 holes at The Landings Club’s Deer Creek Course to jump to the top of the leader board. Dougherty, ranked 134th on the KFT points standings coming into the event, had a two-stroke lead with three holes left
