Golf blogging Gunslinger accident results in death

A few posts back I wrote about the Gunslinger Accident.  My love for super duper hot sauce, especially my all time favorite Arizona Gunslinger, resulted in a large spill into my Mac keyboard.  I’d exceeded the structural capacity of the white corn tortilla chip.  The chip gave way under the immense pressure and dumped the load of Gunslinger right into my keyboard.

Unfortunately my keyboard didn’t pull through.  The right shift key, the numbers 4-5-6 and the + sign no longer work.  Time for a new keyboard.

Augusta National dethrones Pine Valley as #1 on Golf Digest’s Top 100. Kenny G #1 on my list of kazoo players who golf.

Golf Digest’s top 100 U.S. courses for this year (see below if you click “read more”) has Augusta National (The Masters) at #1 now, over long time #1 Pine Valley. I guess they like distance in their ranking equation?

Beginning to wonder about Golf Digest’s “rankings”

Golf Digest loves to rank everything. While browsing their web site trying to find the elusive top 100 golf courses list, I found that they’re even ranking the top 100 musicians who golf. Strangely enough, GD had Kenny G listed at #2 on that list. This is why I now take Golf Digest’s rankings with a grain of salt. Everyone knows that Kenny G isn’t a musician, he’s a kazoo player.

I now have my own list of rankings as inspired by Golf Digest.

1. Kenny G

Please accept my apologies. I couldn’t find any other kazoo playing golfers for my top 100 list.

Golf TV ratings highest since last year’s US OPEN

Thanks to Tiger Woods for being in contention, and winning at Bay Hill yesterday, television ratings were the highest for golf since last year’s US OPEN.

Like it or not, this guy drives media traffic for TV and the web.

Stay tuned for my next post, highlighting the weakest part of Tiger’s game, which is driving me crazy. And it may not be what you think, based on my last couple of posts.
