Ian MacAllister, the man who is singlehandedly leading the crusade against the “wretched NXT golf ball” has been reading Hooked On Golf Blog. He’s apparently been lurking for a while, reading many of my posts about the new high tech equipment which, in his opinion, is ruining the game of golf.
He chimed in with a comment on my recent post about his new site at www.nxtube.com:
Dear Mr. Korologos,
I’d like to thank you very much for publicizing GDAD’s efforts to abolish the vile NXT Tour and NXT Extreme golf balls. However, I must take exception with your insinuation that my NXTube.com interweb site is nothing more than a front for my arch-enemies in the Titleist Marketing department. Forgive my bluntness, Mr. Korologos, but (as long as we’re all making accusations) I noticed that your little hookedongolfblog enterprise has a decidedly pro-technology bent. I’ve noticed that laser putter alignment systems and space-age polymer training aids leave you giddy as a schoolgirl. But you offer nary a single review of a finely-crafted persimmon wood or trusty niblick. For shame! I wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear that the black-hearted hedonists at Titleist are funding your dark hookedongolf endeavors themselves!! How’s the weather down there in the Black Script pocket, Tony? I’ll bet that NXT shrine you’ve erected in your living room is quite lovely. I’s all so marvelous for you isn’t it ? Helping people to attain that which should remain forever out of reach. Having fun destroying golf, are ye? The thought of you makes me physically ill!
Of course, I could be over-reacting in which case I humbly recant. Thanks again for the (mostly) positive feedback (excepting, of course, your heretofore-mentioned libelous inaccuracies). So in closing, allow me to assure you that my quest is real and my intentions pure. Join my crusade! Down with NXT! Ban the yellow and black!
President, Founding Member
I’ve requested an interview with Mr. MacAllister
Since reading Ian’s comment I’ve contacted him. I’m asking if he’ll be willing to do a small online interview. I’m giving him the opportunity to speak his peace and let the HOG readers come to their own conclusions about Ian’s opinions.
We’ll see if Ian has the balls to respond (pun intended).
