So This Is What It's Like To Try To Break In

You should check out Luke Swilor's blog about his travails in trying to make it on the mini-tours. Gives you a good sense of how a lot of the players you never heard of struggle trying to reach their dreams.

It's a tough road he's hoeing, I wish him luck.

Feet Don't Fail Me Now!

This may be a bit of a mundane subject but wearing the proper shoes can be a big help if you're a walker. If you're a rider then wear pink bunny slippers, who cares. Well here's 7 tips for picking the proper pair of shoes from Shoes Brands Blog (catchy name):

1. Always wear the same socks you golf in when trying on new golf shoes
2. Don’t wear socks that are too tight or tend to scrunch up.
3. Check the fit of the shoes by standing on one foot. You should be able to wiggle your toes, and when you stand on tiptoe the shoes should bend where your foot bends.
4. The fit around the middle of the shoe should feel tighter than with ordinary shoes. This is where you get the most support when swinging the club. Don’t overworry about the tightness because all shoes will stretch a little after you have worn them a few times.
5. There should be no more or less than about a half inch of space from your big toe to the end of the golf shoe.
6. It is important to make sure that the shoe and the widest part of your foot are a comfortable fit, without being too loose. Loose fitting shoes cause your feet to slide when you swing the club, and you lose stability, essential for good golf.
7. If the shoe fits all the above criteria, but is a little loose, then use an insole to make the fit a little tighter

And the 8th tip is mine: If the shoe fits, you must acquit!

It's Scientificaly Proven By Every Hacker Who Ever Lived

If there ever comes a time when you think you might be in the desert for an extended period of time without water then my advice to you would be to make sure you bring a sleeve of brand new golf balls with you. When you are dying of thirst and need to find water just take one of the balls and throw it - it absolutely will find water.

New golf balls are attracted to water like stink is attracted to poo. It's been proven time and again by every hacker and quite a few professionals who ever played a water hole. And get this discovery, the attraction magnifies if the new ball is expensive.

This is hard, proven science folks, hope you can handle it.

It's a Down Right Crime Is What It Is...

Take a look at the Grouchy Golf Blog and see what those bastards (football fans that is) have done to his beloved home course. In order to make room available for parking at the upcoming Rose Bowl they will be parking cars on his course.

That's just wrong man, wrong!
