News coverage, at the professional level, is non-stop... and thanks to niche golf bloggers with eclectic passions, it goes way beyond the top-tier tours.
Any kind of golf product or service you can imagine... and a few you probably never imagined... can also be found; presented and reviewed on myriad sites and blogs and discussed (in sometimes heated exchanges) on forums or via Twitter.
Of course there's plenty of less-than-stellar golf content out there... spam-y sites with tons of garish ads and no original anything... but there's much more that's remarkably good, and I keep telling myself I'm going to create a directory of the good places... but I never quite get around to it. Someday... maybe. In the meantime let me tell you about one site... a relatively new one... that combines a lot of the best elements of a good golf place.
Golf Pigeon, which launched earlier this year. describes itself as a kind of "all-you-can-eat buffet for anything golf" and that seems pretty accurate to me; it's a high quality golf buffet... with lots of variety. You'll find news and reviews, training tips and videos and... just a week out of BETA testing they have users in 122 countries. So it's more than a little global.

After all when a site is social it's the users that make the difference and The Golf Pigeon population is very diverse, but collectively fun, and easy-going to the max... which is a really good way to be when you're talking about golf. They're also passionate about the game.
Oh, one more thing: Golf Pigeon has a partnership with Rickie Fowler and they're currently doing a rather awesome contest with truly excellent prizes.
Hats Back tests one's ability to wear a PUMA hat... backwards... like the fabulous Mr. Fowler does.
So check out Golf Pigeon, I think you'll be glad you did.
