I’ve got a good pal named John Kim. John and I have had many a frosty beverage at golf events, chowed down on greasy chicken wings, and talked many hours on the phone and online about the golf industry. John runs a little golf site you may have heard of called PGA.com.

Please go over there now and check out my pal’s interview with The King, Arnold Palmer, host of this weeks Bay Hill Invitational.

Hey buddy, send some King Mojo over here will ya?

Anna Rawson is in love with me. She just doesn’t know it yet… And she’s a GoDaddy spokesperson

anna rawson golf babePaula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis are golf babes, yes. Crowd favorites with the boys (and some heterosexually challenged girls as well I’m sure) and for good reason. Man if you only knew what I typed here and then deleted. I have to watch what I type. I could get myself in trouble… Anyway, in my eye Paula and Natalie are distant bogeys on the scorecard compared to Anna Rawson.

I don’t normally cover many of the 20 or so press releases a day that hit my in box. But any chance to “work” on, google at, slobber over, pics of Anna Rawson and I’m good to go.

I got some cryptic emails from GoDaddy saying I should go to Phoenix for a big announcement a while back. Had I known it would involve Anna, I would have caught a plane, bus, car, skateboard or plain walked there. The announcement was that Anna was named a GoDaddy spokesperson.

Maybe someday I’ll meet Anna. I just hope I don’t swallow my tongue when I do.

UPDATE: Perhaps I need some medical help. I posted this golf blog at 5:30pm my time. Since posting it, I’ve been staring at it. It is now 5:49pm. Where did the last 29 minutes go? Can’t do math either, it was 19 minutes. Must… go… to… different… page… 5:51pm now…


Incredible stolen clubs story. Justice prevails.

In this forum thread over at The Golf Space, my friend nicknamed motorman_mp3 wrote a sad story we’ve all heard too many times.  He ran into the pro shop to get a beverage and when he came out his clubs were gone.  His custom clubs worth thousands, with his name engraved on all of them and the bag, had been stolen.

mp3 was a former cop so he knew what process to go through, checking in with all the pawn shops etc.  Most crooks try to pawn stolen items within 24-48 hours as I found out myself in a similar experience.  They need cash fast, for drugs usually.

Less than one day later mp3 got a call from a pawn shop saying there’d been a call asking if they bought clubs.  He hoped this was his set and it was.

“THE CLUBS ARE IN POLICE CUSTUDY”
The dumb a$$ showed up at the pawn shop with my clubs.
I will know more in a little while after I leave work.
The police called and told me that it was a 16 year old kid that showed up with them.
He had his 18 year old brother with him.
It appears that everything is still there. I will know more when I get there and I will update you with more info tomorrow.
Then a few hours later this post:
