The GURU: Teaching & Coaching Golf with Jason Sutton

When I first got the idea to write interviews with PGA teaching professionals, I never realized how many of these guys I was already friends with. Sometimes, when I interview a band, I need to work hard just to get a finger on the pulse of their main points of contact. So far (granted, this is only my second one) getting in touch with these golf guys hasn’t been a challenge. I actually have so many of these guys lined up I don’t know who to work with next! Anyway, the guy [...]

Comcast Cable & Internet Service: Billing Issues Resolved

Comcast is notorious for being, well, for being pretty horrible. From their cable television to their Internet service, I don’t know too many people that have very many nice things to say about Comcast. There are not too many options when it comes to a wireless Internet connection , and Comcast usually has more impressive speeds. I used to use Comcast for both, but now that I am web only… and I still use Comcast. Before I moved to the apartment [...]

Floods Continue to Rise in Pakistan

The United States eventually did what they always do when a natural disaster like this happens, and threw money at it. Rather than send troops over there to help clean this disaster up, or even to send food and clean drinking waters, we as a nation decided to just throw money at it. This seems to be a trend in the United States. We are not alone in this, other countries are tossing in some cash as well, but nothing is coming close to what the USA has [...]

Dustin Johnson & The Rules of Golf

Whistling Straits, designed by Alive and Pete Dye, features over 1,200 bunkers. Because of this the PGA had made sure all players and rules officials were aware of the rules of golf in regards to bunkers. If you play golf then you know there are a few rules you must follow. One of the most basic things to remember is you are not allowed to ground your club until you hit the golf ball. If you ground your club before in a bunker it is a two shot penalty. Most [...]

Little Known Facts About the King of Pop

He might be one of the greatest performers who ever lived. He could sing, he could dance, and he entertained the world with every video he released and every concert he performed. He was known all over the world as the King of Pop, and his death was extremely unexpected. He died too young, and was just in the midst of a comeback. I never had the chance to see him perform live, and that is something I will regret for the rest of my life. The man [...]

Some Rules Aren’t Meant to be Broken

I started playing baseball before I could even walk. My dad, a long time fan of the sport and an avid player in college and high school, got me hooked on the game at a very early age. I remember long nights of practicing until the sun went down, just to get up the next day and do it all over again. But that didn’t matter; I loved it. I loved the competition, the skills required to hit and to field, and the teamwork that had to go into every game. Most players in [...]

Taking a Stroll the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course

Ever since I can remember I have loved the game of golf. On top of that love I have formed a deep and seeded affection for Tiger Woods. I remember this like it was yesterday. I was in Cincinnati, Ohio at a Hallmark ornaments convention with my mother and late grandmother. We were finished with the convention for the day and headed out for dinner at Chili’s. (Don’t ask me how I remember all of these details, but I do.) We walk in, sit down, and order some drinks. Just [...]

Checking into the Aqua Palms Resort & Spa

I recently returned from a trip to Hawaii with my girlfriend Sheryl. Her and I traveled there for her spring break and spent seven nights and eight days traveling around the islands, seeing LOST filming locations, visiting as many beaches as we could, and simply enjoying the simple life that is Hawaii. We had a great trip, took tons of pictures, and even managed to meet some of the actors from our favorite television show LOST. The trip was perfect, as was [...]

Upgrading to Pandora One

For most of us, listening to music is something we simply cannot live without. You remember the days of the portable cassette player and then moving to a new generation of portable CD players. Just in the last few years we have gone from carrying around CD players to carrying around iPods, iPhones, and a variety of other media players that will allow us to listen to our collection of albums and in most cases even the radio. But is AM/FM radio all [...]
