  • It's good work if you can get it

    It's not the glamour it may be rumored to be, but covering a golf major is what we do every day - work. Just a little different kind of work.

    Can you ever get that far away from that four-letter word?

    A semi-weekly newspaper from Kentucky won't turn many heads in the media center at the Masters, but when J.B. qualified in February, I had nothing to lose by asking.
