I’m going to be giving away another Masters flag this year, just like last year. I have yet to come up with a cool way of doing it. For now, give the sponsor of this contest, MMO, a click on the image below!
Stay tuned for contest details.
Hooked On Golf Blog and The Golf Space and are partnering with MMO Golf to provide a fun Masters pin flag giveaway for patrons of HOG and TGS! Click the image below to go to the giveaway.
Post your top five picks in the contest thread at The Golf Space’s forum
. The order does not matter. The prize money for all players will be added and the contestant whose 5-team roster amasses the most prize money will win a Masters Flag from MMO Golf!
DraftKings is hosting a FREE fantasy golf tournament for this week’s Northern Trust Open. The contest includes $1000 in prizes and the TOP 225 will win money. See the image below for some of the basics. Click the image or this free fantasy golf link to play. I’m entered, so see if you can beat me. Username: HookedOnGolfBlog. That should not be hard. As much as I seem to know about golf, I suck at fantasy golf!

This is a good alternative to the now dead HOG Fantasy Golf league, which I closed after some jerk threatened to sue me because his FREE Nike driver he won didn’t arrive quick enough… I’ll let other sites handle the fantasy golf now, and not have to deal with boneheads like that!
Don’t ever say I don’t take care of the HOG patrons! (Just like the Masters, readers here are “patrons,” not readers). Here’s a chance to get your hands on a free golf club from TaylorMade. As part of their launch of the “SpeedBlade” line, they’re giving out, a.k.a. seeding 20,000 6-irons for people to try out. Obviously they are expecting the golfers who use those 6-irons to be blown away by the club and buy a whole set, and will post about their great experience on their social networks.
Soon I’ll be doing a SpeedBlade fitting myself, getting tested in a TaylorMade Performance Lab and fitted for an optimal set of SpeedBlades. Then I’ll be posting a SpeedBlade review after that. Stay tuned and have fun with your new 6-iron.

The time has come to announce the winners of the Hooked On Golf Blog / Energy Athletic Facebook photo contest! This has been a fun experiment and collaboration between HOG and EA. We had some very neat submissions and a big surprise. Here are the four winners below.
Above left: Stacy Brown is golf’s version of Catwoman surveying a birdie putt, which she made!
Above right: Most liked photo by Evan Luthra had over 1200 likes! Having 100,000 twitter followers helps.
Lower left: Jeff Bricker’s photo is very touching. A young caddie and his uncle who won the club championship.
Lower right: Mike Dobbyn as posted by his friend John Hartline. There is some “energy” in this shot for sure.
Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to Energy Athletic for the cool contest concept. It was a learning experience and quite fun. I’ll work on more contests and giveaways to “thank” HOG patrons for their support!
