I’ve been a long time Arturo Fuente fan. Until this past week I had yet to try the Gran Reserva Hemingway Short Story. This is a fantastic cigar for golf because of its size. Easy to pack. Easy to manage. Doesn’t last too long. Oh, and the flavor is the best part. It is very tasty medium cigar, not too strong but does pack a lot of taste in a small package.
I enjoyed my first golf round of 2015 with this cigar. I was 1-over par for holes which the cigar was in play, and 8-over par on non-cigar holes. You do the math. Proof that this cigar cuts strokes off your golf score!
I also enjoyed one with the lovely bride and a good friend who was in from out of town. All of the testers give this one high grades.

I wasn’t able to find this specific cigar on their site but these did come from my friends at Cigars City
. I’m sure stock changes all the time, or perhaps I was being a bonehead and not looking in the right place.
Pricing on these cigars can be under $5.00 each.
Golf Magazine is changing its name to BOOB Magazine.
We’ve seen this change coming. We’ve seen the transformation happening right before our eyes as Golf Magazine has been posting gallery after gallery of Instagram feeds and photos of hot women in golf. “Hot tour wives and girlfriends” articles… “hottest women in golf” articles…. They don’t even have to be golfers, as long as they’re holding a golf club, or simply have big boobs and live in the same city as a golf course.
Hooked On Golf Blog inside sources, under condition of anonymity, have sent in the new cover for BOOB Magazine, which will hit the shelves in time for the 2015 Masters this April, even featuring a hot G-string spread with Martha Burk.
New BOOB Magazine April 2015 Cover
Honestly it is about time Golf Magazine came clean with their “golf journalism” turned Red Light District. I’m happy to see the rebranding/renaming, and look forward to honest tits and ass journalisn, not under the auspices of “golf” but for what it really is, posting BOOOBS for hits.
Well played Boobs Magazine. Well played.
Pass the milk…
I’m wearing this tremendous 1/4 zip baby alpaca fur sweater by Bobby Jones at this very moment. It is so comfortable that I may wear it even in the summer when it is 104 degrees.
Bobby Jones Baby Alpaca 1/4 Zip Sweater
This fantastic, stylish, sharp, classy, and mega-comfortable sweater is hands-down the best apparel item reviewed in 2014 at Hooked On Golf Blog.
By being said best item, I send my congratulations to Bobby Jones for winning the Best Apparel Item award in the 2014 Hooked On Golf Blog Product of the Year Awards! I’m sure this is the most prestigious award collected by Bobby Jones to date.
I was thankful to be playing golf yesterday. First because my back had gone out and I miraculously recovered in time to play. Second, it is December here in northern Utah and it is not uncommon for the courses to be closed and under a couple feet of snow.
To celebrate the day and the unseasonably warm weather I busted out a Ave Maria Crusader Cigar courtesy of my BFF’s at Cigars City.
This Nicaraguan made cigar has Honduran/Nicaraguan filler and an Equador Habano wrapper. It is a medium-full strength cigar, so not quite for newbs or those looking for a light flavor.
I liked the body and flavor of this cigar. Very enjoyable. Not too much for my slightly-above-newb level. It had just enough of a kick to it.
Game Improvement Cigar
I fired up this cigar on the 13th hole and it obviously helped my game: par, par, par, birdie, birdie, bogey. I was five over par for the holes without the cigar and one under par with cigar. Could be my new secret weapon.
I’ll be posting a full review of the Fairmont Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland soon. In preparation for that review, I’ve processed a gallery of Fairmont Hotel Scotland photos and posted in the Hooked On Golf Blog photo gallery. Click the photo below to see the full gallery.
Fairmont Hotel – St. Andrews, Scotland – As seen from the Torrance Course – click to see full gallery
The Fairmont is quite a place. Very large. The rooms are so much bigger at the Fairmont than the tiny rooms at the hotels close to the Old Course. In fact, I’d guess that my room at the Ardgowan last time was the same square footage as the bathroom in my suite at the Fairmont.
Stay tuned for my Fairmont Hotel St. Andrews review coming soon.
