Hats off to Sports News IRELAND for the bonehead of the week award.
No, Tiger will not break the major record of Jack “Nicholas”
Not only did they regurgitate the most over-asked and tired question in golf history, they didn’t even spell the greatest golfer in history’s name correctly.
I can safely say that Tiger Woods will in fact NOT break the major championship record of Jack “Nicholas.”
Actually the title itself in this awful piece is quite puzzling. Are they asking if Tiger will break Mr. “Nicholas’s” record of six Masters wins or the “Nicholas” record of 18 major championships?
Happy 10th blogday or blogiversary to my good friend John Retzer, also known as the Golf Blogger. GolfBlogger.com is one of the few blogs still in existence from the crop of “original” golf blogs which started appearing in around 2004. John has been a rock in golf blogging, cranking out over 9,400 posts in his 10 years. That’s almost 1000 posts/year. Do the math. I can’t spit them out that fast.
I’ve had the pleasure of playing golf with the famous Golf Blogger, in his home state of Michigan. Michigan is one of the best places in the country for golf and I’m envious of John’s locale. He is reviewing tons of Michigan golf courses. There’s probably not a better resource for Michigan golf than GolfBlogger.com.
John has been an inspiration and a friend in the world of golf blogging. As he and I have both noticed, many thousands of golf blogs have come and gone. Golf “journalists” and large golf media outlets now call their articles blogs, just to be cool. But we know who the original and coolest golf blogs are, and continue to be.
Tip of the cap to Golf Blogger. Cheers friend. Here’s to another 10 years. We need to get our 2nd match scheduled soon.

After seeing a photo of Kid Rock with a Golf WRX logo across his face I had no choice. I must give credit where credit is due to Golf WRX. There is no golf website out there better at taking pictures of golf bags which contain custom tour clubs that the average golfer can’t get, and if they could, they’d probably never be able to hit them.
Because the photos golf bags which contain custom tour clubs that the average golfer can’t get, and if they could, they’d probably never be able to hit them, are so awesome, a watermark is placed on the photos to discourage people from stealing them. Imagine having your own photo of a golf bag which contains custom tour clubs that the average golfer can’t get, and if they could, they’d probably never be able to hit them, appear on the cover of Time Magazine (because it is so awesome) and not getting credit for it!
In honor of the awesome job Golf WRX does with their watermarking photos of golf bags which contain custom tour clubs that the average golfer can’t get, and if they could, they’d probably never be able to hit them, I decided to create a slideshow of the 10 worst Golf WRX watermarks, along with one bonus. The list goes to 11! Click the image below to begin the slideshow and enjoy!
FootJoy DNA Golf Shoes
I submit to you that one cannot write a fully informed and accurate review of a golf apparel or equipment item within 24 hours of receiving it, especially a golf shoe. I debuted my FootJoy DNA’s back on January 15th, the day I received them. Within 24 hours a certain website which I’ll refrain from naming posted a “review” of these shoes. Let me get this straight, a golf writer can play enough golf in 24 hours to review a brand new pair of golf shoes? I don’t think so. Obviously their goal was to get the “scoop” and I suppose they did.
And now back to the “whats in the bag?” photos…
Real Golf Reviews
One thing I really try to do here is be as no nonsense and honest as possible with my golf equipment reviews. There’s no way I’m going to write a phony review about FootJoy golf shoes, or anything else for that matter. If I don’t play it enough to REALLY evaluate it and reach a solid conclusion good or bad, I will not post a review. That’s why I didn’t post my FootJoy DNA review a month and a half ago. I hadn’t played enough rounds in them, on a real golf course, hitting a real golf ball, walking on real grass. I have now.
I’m in a sarcastic mood right now. Then again, I’m always in a sarcastic mood. I was browsing Golf.com and found it mildly entertaining that in a space of roughly 3.5 inches by 5.5 inchs, there are 22 social networking icons.
Not saying its wrong or right, just find it mildly entertaining…
