In The April 2009 Golf Periodicals

Just for fun, I’ve decided to sort of keep track of what the two major magazines—Golf Digest and Golf—are covering over the next several months. My instinct is that it’s mostly recycled and reused. I’m getting bored with both magazines. But maybe that’s just cynical me. Anyway, here’s the April 2009 issues:
