There are a few golf blogs up in the Great White North (aka Canada). What’s that all aboot aye?

Of course most of us know Robert Thompson and his Going for the Green golf blog. Robert is one of the first golf bloggers. For some reason right now there is an error and I can’t expand his blog to read it. I hope it’s temporary.

The Illogical Golf Blog has been going since December 2005, posting “Illogical thoughts and ramblings from a few golfing idiots.”

“Can a weekend duffer simply take lessons and practice enough to become a pro?” The Going Pro blog is quite an experiment and intends to answer that very question. A guy who calls himself a regular “duffer” is trying to see if a teaching professional can coach him up to the pro ranks.

Here are his stats:

Years Playing: 7
Driving Distance: 190 yards
150 yard club: 6 iron
Clubs: 7 year old PING ZINGS 2
Ball: Whatever I find
Swing Speed: slow

I’d have to say he has no chance at the PGA Tour. Heck his driver goes as far as my 6 iron and I’m a hack compared to a tour player. He does have the chance to become a good golfer during the process though and I think that is the real point.

    Distance is key. by the way,
    The Temple of Love – The World Peace Religion
    is the only religion in which Golf figures prominently.

    Bummer that instamarv got too busy and took his blog down. He said he may start something up in the future though – hope he does : )

    Thanks for the line Mediaguru.
    The training is slowly coming along and my distance is getting better. I am still crap…but getting better.
    Just got word I will be playing in the John Daly Pro-Am September 12th. If you are near Niagara Falls, drop by and I’ll get you in.
