Unexplained Tragedy Strikes at My Home Course

Written by: Tony Korologos | Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

I was horrified to see this tragic situation first hand, a couple of days ago.  It was on the 5th tee.

What events transpired to produce this awful waste? What happened?  Looks like the person got one bite into it and boom. End of story.

Was that dog #3?  Just couldn’t have any more?  Did the wife catch him on the golf course eating hot dogs when he was supposed to be at the gym and on a diet?  Did Gary Player make an unexpected appearance and the dog-eater had to secretly dump the one-biter in the trash?

If anyone has any information… any at all, please contact me.

The forecast for this afternoon is 98F and sunny.  I’ll be doing my best to stay hydrated and keep my concentration and energy level up with the help of some Swing Oil.

Swing Oil

In my group “swing oil” or “swing lube” is normally in reference to another liquid refreshment.

I’ll be testing Swing Oil out over the next month or two and posting my full review soon. I’m playing so bad now that I’m tempted to not only drink this stuff but soak my clubs and golf balls in it as well. Hell, I might even pour some on my brain.

I’ve found a new gamer ball, one that fits my game perfectly:

The Emoji Poop ball above matches my Emoji Poop driver cover, which reviewed about a week ago.

Below is the Paige Spirinac ball:

These are part of the Emoji half-dozen pack which can be found on Amazon here.

When my golf partners watch me chip this is the ball that represents their reactions:

These would be a fun Father’s Day golf gift, though it may be too late to order these for Father’s Day unless you are on Amazon Prime.


HOG Android App Released!

I’m happy to announce the release of the world’s first golf blog Android app!  Hooked on Golf Blog is now available as an Android app, free in the Google Play Store here.  HOG blazed the golf blogging trail when it began in 2004, and continues to blaze new trails in the world of golf media.

The HOG Android app was designed to be easy to use. Reading the latest posts takes one finger tap. Getting a list of posts in a single category, like equipment reviews is one tap. Now HOG patrons can enjoy the brilliant, well written, entertaining, enlightening content here anywhere, on their mobile device. Read HOG in line at the DMV or waiting to get drilled at the dentist!

iOS App

If you are an iOS user, the app is also available on the Apple App Store here.


HOG iOS App Submitted to Apple iTunes Store

I’m thrilled to announce that this morning I submitted the new Hooked on Golf Blog iOS mobile app to the Apple iTunes store.  This free app delivers all the HOG content to your mobile device in an easy to navigate and very clean format for mobile.  New content is automatically updated; fetched directly from the blog’s database.

By day I’m a web developer and I’ve been doing a lot of learning of technologies and programming languages that are “device agnostic.” This allows me to port the code to web, desktop, iOS, Android and even Windows Phone (if I wanted to, but I don’t). I’ve spent tons of hours learning and working hard on this app and bringing together the engine of this site, WordPress in the form of a mobile app.

The app is awaiting “approval” at the moment. This process can take a few days up to a week or so. When the app is available (and confirmed working LOL) I’ll be making lots of announcements here and on all the HOG social networks!

HOG (other platform) Coming Soon

I’m still finishing off the process of creating the HOG (other platform) app. I hope to submit that to the (other platform) Store this evening. An announcement will follow.

FORE!
