The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Every once in a while you get a day that is not only perfect outside, but also perfect in every way. Add a good round of golf into that formula, and it is one in a million. I played well all day, and my only “problem hole” arrived on #12, a shorty par four. After a push to the right side of the green, I had a fairly easy pitch shot to the green that also needed to get under a bush limb. I hit what seemed to be a good shot, but it went too high … disaster and now hitting three to the green. This time I just needed an easy chip to get up and down, saving par. Long story short, this was my worst shot of the day as I found the ground before the ball. OK, time to re-group, make a two putt, and run to the next hole with a bogey, right? Nope, a 40 foot putt from the fringe flies straight into ( dives into is more accurate ) the hole for the ugliest par in the history of man.
This is just how the entire round seemed to go, as I effortlessly made my way to the clubhouse with a final score of 73. I always love a golf day, but this one was like a day in heaven. My list of favorite rounds is a long one, and carry so many wonderful memories. To rate this day in comparison, I think at the very least – this would make my TOP 20 list.
I also made a driver video here: Hollydale Golf Longest Drive Ever
It’s been a while since I posted anything here, and these photos are from a while back. Playing golf that day I was using my camerphone and another camera … and forgot about the photos on the other memory card! I was dropping them into my computer and thought hey, easy quick blog. Don’t want my account closed for NO ACTION
and yes, a “couple of dandy lions” that day
- Tiger Woods and Speedcat Hollydale at the Ballagio
I was going back to my room after loosing miserably at cards when Tiger Woods and his entourage turned the corner and walked torwards me. I asked him if he won anything down at the tables. He said no, and that he was only there to see a friend in one of the shows playing at the Bellagio. At the time, it did not register that his friend was actually one of his girlfriends. Anyway, that’s not the point of this post. The point is how fun he was to talk to, and that he talked to me at all. Of course, I asked to get a photo with my phone … he said, “Sure, just don’t place it out there on the internet because I am not really in Vegas”. Seems enough time has gone by to finally post it up here at my golf blog. Nobody reads it anyway !
