    Photogs & Videogs

    This past year, before my trip to Africa, I picked up photography as a new hobby. I am not as much of a gearhead for photography, but I was curious if there where any other photogs here in the great THP nation... and what they were shooting. Nikon 5100 w/ Rainbowimaging quick strap Nikkor...

    Planned Absence

    My Big Weekend!

    As I am sure many of you know, one of the (many) reasons I was absent from the boards for a time was I had somehow managed to find a beautiful girl who actually liked spending time with me! I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth... so I spent most of the last year courting this girl. It...

    A special announcement!

    As some of you may know- a large part of my absence around here happened to be the result of a certain young lady that I have been running around with the last 6 months or so. Girls are such a sink-hole of time... However, despite such time constraints- this weekend I made it official that I...

    A Triumphant Return!

    It's funny to type "return", because I don't really feel like I have been "gone" very long- but when I look at the calender it is pretty amazing to me just how much time has passed since the outing at the end of May. 3 months later there is very little in my life that is the same as when I...

    Keurig vs Tassimo

    I am in the market for a small coffee maker and I was wondering if anyone here had experience with these two systems. About my use: I drink about 2 cups of coffee a week. I have put off getting a coffee pot mostly because I never have a need for a full pot on my own. However, it isn't uncommon...

    Bubba in White

    I didn't see a thread posted for this so I thought I would start it... Bubba is wearing "Wimbledon Whites" all four days at the masters. I actually really like the idea and think that it is a cool tribute to the "other" country club sport. I am however, surprised that Travis Matthew isn't...

I went a lot when I was a kid with my Dad but I haven't been back since I really became serious about golf. The...

    Al Davis

    I saw a video clip of his press conference today announcing Jackson as the new head coach. The man looked like he was on his death bed. So the question becomes- when will Al Davis give it up? (Note: the question is not when SHOULD Al Davis give it up, as I am pretty sure that happened 10...

    I feel like an internet golfer...

    There is a pervasive saying around here. "The numbers don't lie". If that's the case, I am in a LOT of trouble. This winter I decided (for lots of reasons) to buy a large pack of Golftec lessons and really hammer out my swing. I had gotten myself down to a 14 handicap by the end of the season...

    GPS Dilemma

    So... I thought I had everything figured out and now I am second guessing myself. What do you THPer's think? I have been using my iPhone for a golf GPS and have generally been pleased. However, it does kill my battery and it seems to take longer and longer to sync up the distance and so I have...

    Professional Success!

    I don't normally toot my own horn, but I am freaking excited! I took a HUGE professional test in October and have been waiting for the results now for almost 2 months. I got my letter today saying that I passed, and did so well above national average. This turns out to be a good thing because...

    Revitalizing Waterproof Fabrics Review

    Those of you who have gotten to know me pretty well the last 8 months or so know that Golf is my second love that requires great performance apparel. LONG before I seriously golfed, I backpacked (and still pretend to) and I backpacked a lot. If you think you need goo rain gear on the course-...

    Brick + Mortar Putting

    I ventured into a B+M establishment today to pick up some new golf balls and as I always do I ventured to hit a few irons, swing a few drivers, and take a couple of putts. What I was surprised to discover was... I hit 5/10 putts from ~25 feet. I tried a different putter. 5/10 from the same...
