Dint o Golfers,
So, it’s been an interesting few days. A very humbling honor has been given to me by the Golf Writers of America – Tom Watson and I have been given the Ben Hogan award. Hard to believe Hogan, Watson, and Green are in the same sentence, must less given the award. I think I will be going to Augusta during the Masters week. Maybe I’ll lobby to be a honorary starter with Palmer. Sadly, i must say i might not be able to out drive the King.
It’s just flat out nice that so many seem to be on my side in the “fight”. Damn go the oars!!!
Now i will slip the shaaiit moment in – my brain is just getting worn out by the surges. Wow, I hate to throw my pain on you, but I’m just saying what it is.
Now, more developments. Bryant Gumbel and HBO Sports is doing a piece on me that will air on Jan. 19th at 10 o’clock. I have spent 2 days with the gang and i have total faith that Bryant and the producer “Chap” will do a nice piece. But, something might be provocative because some people just don’t see what i see.
I did semi see what my idea on the shorter foot will do. Although it was just eliminating the end of the shoe, there was a difference. I really believe when i get the new foot it will make a huge difference in my ability to swing the club – this is a good thing.
On a side note, i bowled at the Villa de Calc the other day (yes he put in 2 lanes at his new home in Jupiter). I was pathetic – 98-149-144 a once 220 average bowler – reduced to just standing at the line and rolling it. But my new ladies size 8, which eliminated my “extra” space, enabled me to actually walk and roll it. Yesterday was a big start – 148-168. That’s partly the reason i believe my idea will be a huge benefit in golf.
Damn this was long and I’m semi sorry but I’m a fascinating journey.
Be good my friends and onward we go,
