Meet Redanman

Woa. My coffee this morning is about 10x as strong as normal! WOOOOOO.

I’ve got a few new golf/media/blog friends as a result of my recent golf blog travels and adventures. I’m going to feature each one of them in posts over the next little while.

Redanman

Redanman is a “golf course rater.” He plays courses and contributes his ratings and opinions for those many “top 100″ articles you see in golf magazines. Redanman is a big guy. He stands a good 6′ 5” or taller. He is an architecture geek who has played more courses than John Daly has X-wives, more courses than Tiger Woods caddy Steve Williams has smashed fans cameras…

Redanman is a doctor by trade, and has a doctorate when it comes to golf course architects, designs and especially golf course critiques. He’s not afraid to tell you a famous course that everyone is raving about is really a dog track.

While participating in golf course architecture and design discussions with Redanman and my pal Jay Flemma, the best thing I could do was shut up and listen to what they had to say. For instance, I learned about 5-6 different names they have for green designs, depending on the shapes and contours the green has. They could name greens from courses I’ve never heard of which had each style they were discussing. I should have been taking notes.

Redanman’s web site looks like a blog but has no comments or blogroll. The site is a bit disorganized and hard to navigate. He needs to work on his photos as many of them are blurry (like those cell phone camera pictures) and/or over saturated in Photoshop. Those critiques aside, check out what he has to say because it’s good stuff.

Black Mesa Day 2

It’s 1:30am. Just got back from a local Pueblo Indian casino. We had some great steaks for dinner and I won $45 playing blackjack. I need to hit the hay for my early flight back home but I had to post this video nugget from today first.

My pal Kevin Sniffen hits an incredible chip:

As I mentioned in the last post, I’m headed to Santa Fe today.

I’ll check in when I get settled in to the “lodge” there…


4-in-ONE short game travel club set

Here’s a neat, compact set of four clubs by Short Game Travel Clubs, Inc. The 4-in-ONE short game set shrinks down into a small briefcase sized package which can be taken on the road for those business travelers who want to swing a club in their hotel room. Included with the 4-in-ONE short game set are three wedges, a putter, hole, soft practice golf balls, chipping mat and carrying case.

The clubs share same top half of the shaft with the grip and are assembled simply by screwing them together.

Critiques

The only issue I have a problem with, is that the shaft length of the putter is the same as the irons when you put it together. It’s quite long for a putter so I have to choke down quite a bit.

Conclusion

I’m not sure I’d replace my Titleist Vokey Spin Milled with the lob wedge in the 4-in-ONE set, but this is a fun set and would come in handy on the road for those golf addicts like me who need short game practice. I’ve whacked these clubs all around my house and they’re great.

I have a few more pics of the 4-in-one club set in the HOG Photo Gallery.
