Birch Ridge Pro-Am a smashing success

Golf is a difficult game. If it was easy we'd all be on television teeing it up at the British Open this weekend, wouldn't we?Instead we grind away in Soldotna, searching for the endlessly elusive repeatable swing.

Birch Ridge reflects on inaugural Kenai Peninsula Open

I hope I don't disappoint the avid followers of this belligerent column, but I'm going to use this space to thank the people who made the first Kenai Peninsula Open at Birch Ridge Golf Course possible this past weekend.

NEW YORK - The songwriting team of composer Stephen Flaherty and lyricist Lynn Ahrens has lasted longer than many marriages - 30 years, a number that even shocks the duo. "It's insane. I like to say we started at 7," Ahrens says, laughing.
