Golfing banter

A few weeks ago I got to spend time with my mate and coach Scott Barrow. Golf with Scott is always interesting because he likes to challenge and approaches golf way differently from the norm. Once, after he smacked a booming drive, he let out a primal scream. In fact, he often gets me to cut…

A better golf course design …

Mowing madness and other things

I started a mowing business. Not sure what I was thinking but it sure has kept me very busy the last few months. And this is part of the reason why I’ve been more quiet than usual on the golf front. But I’m ready to get back into things in the new year, including, –…
