“About eight weeks ago, about five days before the US Open I woke up and had some intense pain in some areas of my body, some joints and tendons and so forth. I couldn’t walk. I ended up going and seeing a doctor and I ended up going back to the Mayo Clinic right after the British Open to get a second opinion.”

“I have this thing called psoriatic arthritis where your immune system attacks your joints and tendons and so forth.  It is very treatable and the medicine I’ve been taking has been very helpful.”

“Everything is fine now. I have been starting treatment and things have been great.”

“Long term there shouldn’t be any issues.”

~Phil Mickelson

Apparently Phil has been battling a form of arthritis which made him barely able to get out of bed.

This is quite a surprise.  I’m glad to hear this condition is treatable and Phil is doing okay.

Congrats to my buddy Luke Swilor. HE’S A DAD!

I’ve known Luke Swilor for many years now.  We’ve had some epic matches, most of which he has come out on top.  But I hang my hat on the one where I had a great day and he had a bad day and I kicked his butt.

Anyway, a hearty congratulations to Luke and wife on the birth of their new son Zac.

Zac will be taking my money on the golf course soon.

New HOG Logos!

I finally got around to having a real designer make up a new logo for HOG.  Yes, it took five years but I finally have one.  Introducing my new skull friend, “HOG.”  I have two versions.  In version one HOG’s skull is a golf ball.  In version two, HOG has a golf flag sticking out of his skull.  I can’t help but laugh at that one.

Of course, a site redesign to accommodate HOG and the new color scheme is warranted.  Not sure when I’ll get around to it, but sometime in the next five years…
