It has been a while since I did an update on HOG’s sister site, The Golf Space. The Golf Space is a social networking site built specifically for golfers and golf related business.

The Golf Space - Golf Networking

The Golf Space is golf’s version of Facebook and MySpace all wrapped up into one, minus all the spam. “TGS” is completely free and provides networking tools for everything from finding golf connections to tracking rounds and golf stats.

The Haney Project – Charles Barkley On Golf Channel

Tonight is the premier of the Haney Project, where Tiger Woods’ coach Hank Haney will be attempting to fix Charles Barkley’s swing. I wish Hank luck.

Sorta famous

If you watch the preview of this show, you’ll see a shot from behind Charles where he’s on a desert course wearing shorts.  That was at last year’s Team Challenge and I was standing about 10 feet behind Charles on that swing.  Here’s my video of Chuck’s swing:

Kirkland/Costco Organic Peanut Butter Is Disgusting

kirkand peanut butterI do a few Lifestyle reviews here including reviews on various food items.  Here’s my shortest review ever:

Kirkland/Costco Organic Peanut Butter Is DISGUSTING, unless of course you like drinking your horrible tasting peanut butter through a straw!

I bought a two pack of this peanut butter last week.  When I opened the first one I was hoping for a good thick and creamy peanut butter sandwich.  I didn’t know I’d have to “pour” the stuff onto my bread though.  The peanut butter was in a highly liquid form.  I tried to stir it but still it was a runny, disgusting liquid.

I don’t know what I was thinking but I still tried to taste it.  I thought “maybe it still tastes good despite the consistency.”  I might as well have eaten some cardboard or maybe just some dirt from my garden. That would have tasted better.


Alice Cooper should hire me

alice cooper golf bookI’m a rock & roll drummer in one of my other lives so I like Alice Cooper. I’ve seen him perform many times and he puts on a killer show. He’s one of the few people who can combine rock & roll and golf.

Hey Alice, hire me as your drummer. I promise you a kick ass drummer and a golf buddy to give you a run for your money on the golf course while we’re on tour…

My pal 4Checker did a review of Alice Cooper’s book called “Alice Cooper – Golf Monster.” Check it out over at The Golf Space.
