Ice Skip It

2 days agoSports / Golf : Hooked On Golf

I live in the land of “The Greatest Snow on Earth,” the home of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Last year’s snowfall was massive and I had a fantastic time with my new skis enjoying the “pow pow.”  But this year has been very different. High temperatures and very little snow.  The skiing is pretty bad. […]

Random Stuff You Find on the Golf Course – 2018 Episode One

6 days agoSports / Golf : Hooked On Golf

This Trump global warming is great for my golf game. Normally all the courses here in northern Utah would be closed and under a deep blanket of snow, but instead the temps are around 50 degrees and there’s grass! So I hung up the skis and got the sticks out yesterday and played my first […]

Competitive Golf in Utah

I’ve played some competitive golf here in Utah and even won two club championships.  That number should have been three, but unfortunately I had a strange situation where in one club championship I shot the lowest solo score of the day but still lost.

Course Review: Punta Espada Golf Club, Dominican Republic

last monthSports / Golf : Hooked On Golf

I’ve sat here for about 10 minutes staring at my blank screen. Nope this review isn’t going to write itself. I’ve been a bit stumped because I know it’s going to be hard to express how fantastic a time I had at Punta Espada Golf Club, and just how amazing the course is. I’ll give […]

Used Golf Balls From Two Guys With Balls

last monthSports / Golf : Hooked On Golf

It’s a great day when you find that brand new Titleist ProV1 or other expensive “tour” ball in the bushes. Mint condition! #winning! Just made $5.00.  It’s no big deal that some other golfer hit that ball before you.  It’s got plenty of great shots left in it. So why not consider that when purchasing […]

Found Some of My Lost Game – Good Thing the Season is Probably Over

2 months agoSports / Golf : Hooked On Golf

Recently I moved. I’m still unboxing stuff in the new home. Most would agree, moving is hell. With the move and many other things going on in the non-golf-blog areas, I’ve not played much golf. I think I’ve logged 18 holes in about the last eight weeks, until today.  Amazingly, thanks to awesome global warming, […]
