Cleanin’ up the links

I have hundreds of links to other golf sites and golf blogs in my HOG Master Links section.  I’m doing a little mid year cleaning and getting rid of blogs which have been inactive for six months or more.  If you have a golf blog (or just a blog) I recommend doing the same!

Bridgestone TreoSoft Golf Ball Review

I’ve really loved the performance of many Bridgestone golf balls. The B330 and B330-S as well as the E5 and E6 have provided me with great performance on the course. I have a new ball to add to the list from Bridgestone, the “TreoSoft.”

The TreoSoft is a two piece ball, meaning it has a large core and an outer cover. The core employs some very cool and innovative technology. Rather than being one density throughout, the core changes in density from center out. This “soft gradational compression” results in more energy transfer at impact and helps moderate swing golfers gain more distance. Despite having what some would call a “hard” cover, I can attest that this core gives the TreoSoft an extremely soft feel.

Greetings from Las Vegas. Just played Reflection Bay today. The TPC of Vegas is tomorrow and then I’ll be back to HOG world headquarters for more regular golf blogging.

Natalie Gulbis’ House

I saw Natalie Gulbis’ house today. I knocked on her door to ask her face to face why she hasn’t returned my phone calls. Nobody home.

guru on the beachSoCal

Greetings from Annaheim California. I’ve been hanging down here on the beach for a few days, taking a very needed vacation with my kids. I’m a bit sunburned in the non golf-tan areas like the tops of my feet and my scalp!

About the picture on the right: I have my Bobby Jones hat on to protect my burned scalp, my new Adidas sunglasses (review coming soon), my King Golf Royal T shirt, my Otterbox 3500 case to protect my valuables from the sand and sea, and my Taylormade Backpack to carry it all in!

Yesterday found us at Knott’s Berry Farm, riding all the awesome roller coasters. Today we’ll be back south at Laguna Beach. Tomorrow it is looking like perhaps the San Diego Zoo, or maybe checking out LA, Beverly Hills and Hollywood. It has been a while since I pulled into Ricardo Montalban’s driveway and yelled “Khaaaaaaaaaaaannnnn!”

My hotel’s free internet connection has been down about 50% of the time I’ve been here, but strangely the $10/day connection seems to be up and running fine. So my blog posts have been a bit more sparse than normal.

Vegas next

I get home Friday night about midnight. I have enough time Saturday to wash the sand out of my clothes for my departure on Sunday. I’m heading to Vegas to spend some time with my friends at Las Vegas Golf Adventures. I’m going to be evaluating and blogging about their services, checking out Harrah’s and evaluating out two Vegas golf courses: Reflection Bay and the TPC of Las Vegas.
