Callaway Hex Black Golf BallsToday will mark my first test round with the new Callaway Hex Black Golf Balls. I only have a sleeve to work with, so I’m avoiding my home course, which has more hazards than many war zones in the Middle East.

A report will follow.

2nd And 3rd Articles For Utah’s Fairways Magazine Published

[brag] My Dad called me yesterday to let me know he read my articles in the latest issue of Utah’s Fairways Magazine.  Fairways is the official magazine of the Utah Golf Association, mailed out to 30,000+ members.  My Pops told me I did a nice job on the pieces, which makes me very happy.  If he likes them that is a good thing, since he was the sports editor for the Salt Lake Tribune for many years.  My issue has yet to arrive in my mailbox, but I managed to get my hands on another copy.

If you receive Fairways, be sure to take a close look at my articles.  Feature one covers Utah companies at the PGA Show, pages 26-28.  Feature two, bottom half of page 27, covers the Utah Section PGA’s attendance of the 95th annual PGA meetings.

Thanks to Randy Dodson, Chairman of Fairways Media, for the opportunity to contribute to a fine magazine. Since he’s had me do more than one piece, I’m assuming I’m doing something right…

Putting In High Winds

Seems like every Tuesday is very windy here these days.  It was so windy last night that it woke me up at 2:00am.  I’m supposed to play league today, but have no desire to fight 30-40mph winds on a course that has more hazards and places to lose a ball than any course on the planet.

Last Tuesday I was in Mesquite, Nevada for a leg of the HOG World Tour.  I had fun visiting the Oasis Golf Courses and my buddy Adam the pro there.  I and two of my golf pals Arnie and Marius decided to give the Palmer Course a shot, despite the high winds which were gusting up to 50mph.  Every shot was a challenge including putts. Below the video shows some of the fun/challenge of putting in high winds.
