I had two pairs of tickets for tomorrows PGA tournament Pebble Beach which I was awarding as prizes. One person has claimed one pair, but the other winner has not.

First come first served

The first person to go the will call window and say “Tony Korologos from Hooked On Golf Blog and The Golf Space is cool” will get a pair of tickets tomorrow! First come first served.

At the PGA Show demo day I walked by a covered booth and saw this guy hitting balls about one per 1-2 seconds via an automated ball dispenser.  He was over three hours into his world record attempt for the most golf balls hit in 12 hours.  He did break the record and ended up with 7721.

Below they’re taking a quick break to tape up the blisters…

I was watching Stina Sternberg at the PGA Show demo day. She was doing some reporting for Golf Channel. She just couldn’t keep her eyes off me. I even have video proof. I think it is love at first sight for Stina…

Martini Media Network makes good – They’re buying lunch and I’m buying the martinis

Loyal readers of The Golf Space and Hooked On Golf Blog had a long and painful read a few days ago. That piece has been removed. I’m happy to say that all issues between myself and Martini Media Network have been resolved. The wounds are patched and healing, and we’ll all be better off in the end as a result of the experience.

I’m now pals with the CEO of the company Skip Brand. He’ll be taking me to lunch (at the most expensive restaurant in town) in a couple of weeks. I’m a cheap date though so no worries.

Skip and I had a long talk last night and I was able to sense that he is really a good person at heart with good intentions. He may have been a bit insulated to happenings within his company as some execs can be.  I helped expose some of those happenings, bringing Martini the opportunity to address them and improve.

Skip’s company is new and growing fast. This is a good thing, except for the fact that their infrastructure couldn’t keep pace with their growth, causing some problems. The issues I brought up were a surprise to him, and in the end I hope will end up helping his company grow and have better relationships with advertisers and publishers.

A good quote from my new account manager today:

Your reaction is changing the way we do business.

Glad to help.  Perhaps I should go into business consulting…

As a result of this situation, Martini will be implementing monthly meetings with publishers like me to discuss anything and everything.  They also have other policies in place, and have secured the resources necessary to handle their fast growth.  I wonder if I can get a few shares of founder’s stock before they completely blow up.

Maybe I can learn something

At lunch I’ll pick Skip’s brain a bit and get some tips from him on how to make companies grow fast, and he can get some tips from me on putting.
