Woa. My coffee this morning is about 10x as strong as normal! WOOOOOO.
I’ve got a few new golf/media/blog friends as a result of my recent golf blog travels and adventures. I’m going to feature each one of them in posts over the next little while.
Redanman is a “golf course rater.” He plays courses and contributes his ratings and opinions for those many “top 100″ articles you see in golf magazines. Redanman is a big guy. He stands a good 6′ 5″ or taller. He is an architecture geek who has played more courses than John Daly has X-wives, more courses than Tiger Woods caddy Steve Williams has smashed fans cameras…
Redanman is a doctor by trade, and has a doctorate when it comes to golf course architects, designs and especially golf course critiques. He’s not afraid to tell you a famous course that everyone is raving about is really a dog track.
While participating in golf course architecture and design discussions with Redanman and my pal Jay Flemma, the best thing I could do was shut up and listen to what they had to say. For instance, I learned about 5-6 different names they have for green designs, depending on the shapes and contours the green has. They could name greens from courses I’ve never heard of which had each style they were discussing. I should have been taking notes.
Redanman’s web site looks like a blog but has no comments or blogroll. The site is a bit disorganized and hard to navigate. He needs to work on his photos as many of them are blurry (like those cell phone camera pictures) and/or over saturated in Photoshop. Those critiques aside, check out what he has to say because it’s good stuff.
