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.

Guru vs Orlando Golf Blogger

This is a followup to a round of golf I played last month in Orlando at the Disney course Lake Buena Vista. I’ll be doing a review of Lake Buena Vista soon.

Blogger vs Blogger

I’ve had the pleasure of playing golf with a few fellow golf bloggers now. Luke Swilor and I have had some awesome matches. He’s won two and I won the last one.

Last month in Orlando I hooked up with Orlando Golf Blogger Dave Lair. Dave is a very nice cat with a good natural golf swing. His handicap is fairly high right now but I assure you it will be going low if he keeps at it. One problem with Dave is that he is pointing the wrong way. He’s a lefty. 🙂

We decided to play a Nassau style bet. It would be four total $1.00 bets: Front, back, totals and an automatic back press. The format would be match play with handicaps. We had to do handis because the differential in our handicaps was too high.

I played fairly solid for a round on a foreign course and for being so rusty. Dave hit some good shots but had some driving issues which hurt his score and unfortunately for him I won all four bets.

I still have the $4 and I look forward to giving Dave a chance to win it back from me soon!
