Winter project 2016-2017 is an update, facelift, game improvement if you will, to the website. It has been I think 3 years since the last one. I’m making it cleaner and even more mobile friendly than it currently is.
I hope to roll the new changes out before the Masters. Wait, how about during Masters week? Ohh sounds like a good idea.
For a little while you may see a notice in your browser that says “site not secure” or something like that. I’m converting the site to HTTPS (secure) versus HTTP. It will take a while to convert all the internal links to HTTPS so you may see those notices. Not to worry. I don’t have your credit card information!
As we wrap up 2016 it is time for the 2016 Hooked on Golf Blog Year-End Awards. In the next few blog posts I’ll be posting the HOG best of the best in a few hand-picked categories like best golf club(s), best golf course, best apparel item, best golf accessory and so forth.
The envelopes please…
Man it is November already. This year has flown by. I already saw a Christmas tree erected downtown here near a shopping mall. With the holiday season approaching I will be posting my annual golf gift guides. Call them Christmas golf gift guides or holiday golf gift guides. Whatever your politically correct leanings are.

If you have a product you would like to see featured in said gift guides please read on. Because I cover so many product submissions and spend so much time reviewing products, my gift guides feature only products I’ve reviewed in the past year. That way the reader can see the full review and I can help regenerate some traffic to those reviews. If I’ve already reviewed your product this year, there’s not much else to do other than send me a note. If you want to have a product featured which I have not reviewed or received, theres still time, but not much.
Some of the categories I cover include golf equipment, golf apparel, golf accessories.
You can visit the product review submissions page and guidelines for info on submitting a product.
It has been seven years, tens of thousands of photos, and probably millions of words written since I bought my 2009 Apple Macbook Pro 17 laptop. That’s the single greatest tool I have for blogging, other than the two remaining braincells in my cranium. The machine has been a rock, taken a beating, survived countless spills of wine, hot sauce, feta cheese, olive oil… It’s still rocking, but now has moved on to new horizons in the HOG household.
Today that amazing 17 was replaced by a shiny new 15 inch Apple Macbook Pro with a Retina display. This machine is a speed demon. It’s smaller and lighter too. I’ve been spending the day getting this mew machine setup with all my apps, tools, audio-streaming, and everything I need to make golf blog posts. She’s ready.
