    Extremely hard to swallow....

    After 22 years of adult membership and 17 years as a youth and countless fond memories with a group of guys I have played hundreds of rounds with - I am being suspended from my club at the end of next week. This is where I learned to swim as a 5 year-old, learned to play golf at 10....and where...

    American Broadcast Media finally gets the name right

    This year - for the first time - ABC/ESPN did not identify the golf tournament as "The British Open" either in on-screen graphics or in verbal descriptions of it. They used "The Open" logo featuring the Claret Jug and had "The Open Championship" on the graphics header. Sheeesh, it has taken...

    Been away so long....

    That I don't know how to start this post..... I started my new job as a headhunter back in late November. Expected it to be six tough months before first commission...now entering 8th month...to say I am low on $$ is an understatement. It's kind of like one of those WWII movies when the...

    Checking in......

    Man it seems like I have been gone so long.... I've taken a new job as a headhunter (executive recruiter). The hours in front of a PC are daunting... Everyone tells me the first six months are pure hell and they are right. Freaking constant rejection....pounding out dozens of emails and...

    New Bravo Home Sportsbar

    Thought I might share what my new set-up looks like... What you have down below, built into the cabnitry, is my old 36 inch Toshiba tube TV, which is on Charter cable. I have some old doors which used to conceal the TV and I took them off years ago. I am going to put them back on and will...

    NEED advice on Universal Remote Control

    OK the new Samsung is in....works beautifully. Background: I have used Tivo's for five years and am addicted to their brilliant remote control. DirecTV did not renew their relationship with Tivo and sell their own HD DVR instead. Frankly, it's pretty damn decent...can't complain...not as good...

    The state of labor in the U.S. today

    Well after a lot of research, I finally sprang for the HD TV...got a Samsung 5054 - 50 inch plasma. I had to hack out some bookshelves to find a suitable place to hang the unit. Took a long time to hack out one vertical column to leave other shelves around it but it came out well. So I...

    Birmingham, AL (USA) metro

    In deference to our English friends....Birmingham USA is named after Birmingham England...both centres of industrial commerce. We also have suburbs named Leeds and Chelsea.....surprise...the trend continued. All in Jefferson County (named for Thomas Jefferson) Alabama. Our little Birmingham...

    What's your best shot of the year?

    As the season winds down for so many...let's remember back and describe our best single shot of the year... Mine happened last weekend. (after a very average and frustrating golf year for me). I am standing in a fairway bunker, 145 yards from the 11th green - which is a 'tri-level'... The...

    Well its mid-October and the weather is great and the golf course is just brutal.... 1) 4 weeks ago, the super did the deep core aeration and top dressing. Then, in the middle of last week, he rolled them hard and cut them way down...they are stimping around 11 or so.... 2) Because of the...

    Whipsawed and hogtied

    I haven't been playing much lately...unusual... I played this morning and just got smoked. 1) 25 MPH winds, cloudless sky. 2) Rough two inches deep...the classic situation I have described here previously. Hit the ball six feet off the fairway and can't find it. On those holes where I...
