Buzz Fantasy GolfI’m trying a new experiment this season, a new way to play some fantasy golf and give readers of Hooked On Golf Blog and The Golf Space a chance to win some nice golf prizes.

I’ve worked my pals at Buzz Fantasy Golf Leagues to set up a tournament for 2012 which is contested ONLY during professional golf’s four major championships (The Masters, British Open, US OPEN, PGA Championship).

I’m working on sponsors and prizes right now, but can confirm Bridgestone Golf as the golf ball sponsor. If you know me, I’ll have KILLER prizes by the time I’m done! I don’t mess around!


1. Go to
2. Create an account if you don’t have one
3. Click on “Join Existing Private League”
4. Enter League ID 233, and Season ID 206
5. Create your team, enter league password “HOG”

Do me a favor: SPREAD THE WORD!

New to HOG Lab is the Dornoch Putters Curve Dog 1 Stubby. This is a heel-toe weighted blade putter hand made by my friend Grant Mackay in Dornoch, Scotland.

I know people love their Scotty Cameron putters and their Ping putters, Odyssey putters…  But just look at this beauty…

She has some nice smooth curves. Click to zoom.

Grant’s shop is actually the old shop of Donald Ross in Dornoch. If that isn’t some kind of mega-golf karma I don’t know what is.

Review coming soon.

New Tools (Okay, Toys) For Better Golf Blogging

Photography is like golf. People think they can buy a better game with new equipment.  I hope that is true…

Yesterday was a great day on many fronts. The big news on the golf blog front is that I’ve upgraded SLR cameras to the Nikon D7000.  My two old Nikon bodies served me well, but will now be on their way to ebay.

Nikon D7000The D7000 is much more modern, higher quality, better sensors than my two older Nikons.  As an added bonus, it shoots amazing FULL HD video. HOG interviews and golf video pieces will be fantastic!

Along with the camera body I picked up a 50mm prime lens, which stops to an F1.8.  Some call this the “nifty fifty.”  The depth of field at that stop is amazing.  Looking forward to getting better at shooting golf photographs, course etc, part of what I do here.
