About

I'm currently an Editor for Insider Monkey, a financial news site that gives readers up-to-date info on hedge fund activity. My work has been featured on the Wall Street Journal's MarketWatch, the Motley Fool, CNBC, and TheStreet.

In my spare time, I write about golf for Bleacher Report, and my pipe dream is to make the sport as popular as football and baseball are in the fantasy world.

    When you write " Oddsmakers have officially calculated that the average golfer has a one-in-12,500 chance of notching a hole-in-one on his or her scorecard.

    At 2,500-to-1, professional golfers have slightly better odds of actually vindicating the crazed fan in the gallery who yells "Get in the hole!" after every shot."

    do you mean, say, for the average golfer odds of nothing a hole-in-one are 1 in 12,500 in their LIFETIME??? Or do you mean in a given ROUND??? Or do you mean for one given DRIVE???

    It really helps to write what you mean, that is, if you have any idea what you mean.

    Hi, Jake. I made a couple of additional edits to your belly putter piece, but my editor's comments won't save for some reason, so I figured I'd write them here. I changed "that" to "who" in instances where the pronoun refers to a person (rather than a thing), and I made another change for noun-pronoun agreement on your into slide. Other than that, I corrected a typo I spotted ("after finished") and made a couple of small tweaks. Thanks for writing!

    Thanks for becoming a fan, Jake! How are you liking B/R so far? Your writing is terrific by the way, I especially enjoyed the "Injuries to Watch Before NFL Kickoff" piece. I've never been the biggest football fan — probably because I grew up in LA — but after living in the Bay Area for the last five years I've happily taken to the 49ers, who looked pretty solid yesterday! Are you planning on writing primarily about the NFL, or are there are any other sports your interested in covering?

    Thanks again.
