Injured Wrist

Well as one or two of you may recall, I recently took a fall while playing at Morley. Seems some of the concrete on the course wasn't up to Par and broke when I planted my foot during a follow through. Well needless to say, I have had my wrist in a brace for the last few weeks and haven't been able to play a round since then. I am however hoping to get back out this weekend and play at least one round on Sunday!

A Photo of Colin

I just wanted to let everyone know that Baby, Mom and Dad are all doing well. What an incredible experience, I believe I have felt about every emotion that I can think of in the last 4 days. My last message was brief and I just wanted to let everyone know that he had arrived. Currently Colin is in the NICU and has a whole team of Doctors and Nurses working with him to get him ready to come home as soon as he can. My wife Kristi also has a team of Doctors and Nurses working with her to get her… Continue

The 2008 Sun Valley Open is moving forward!

Yesterday we took the first steps to move the 2008 SVO forward. We sent in the sanctioning agreeement and paid for the different fees. Now comes the fun part of gathering sponsors and getting everything prepared. Currently we have 5 teesign sponsors, so if you want to sponsor a sign let me know ASAP. I suspect the teesigns will go fast this year. We will also have a 2008 SVO Fundraiser Disc which we will be selling before the event. Watch for the Entry Form and the 2008 Website coming… Continue

Sun Valley Monthly and Club Meeting

Well tomorrow is the Sun Valley Monthly and the SDA Club meeting. Strangly I am looking forward to both. I want to thank everyone who has stepped up to help out, it is very much appreciated and helps make my job running the monthly even easier! I am looking forward to watching the SVO layout take its toll on the players. With some of the modifications we have made to the layout, it will probably play a little harder in some spots and a little easier in others. With the tall grass perfect drives… Continue

The upcoming addition to my family!

Well, today has been a great day so far. My wife and I went to the hospital to have the 20 week ultrasounds done. As usual we were both nervous and excited at the same time. After 45 mintes of ultrasounds and about 50 images, everything is still going smoothly. At least I think everything is going smoothly. If you ask my wife, she might give you a different response. Seeing the ultrasound pictures makes everything real and it starts to sink in, that life is about to change! To say I am excited… Continue

EIEIO is on the horizon!

Well one of my favorite events is on the horizon. I am looking forward to this event this year as I do every year. Rhett and Emerald Isle put on a great event and it is always a pleasure to play! Hopefully I play better then I did during the EI Bag Tag Challenge. With smart play I hope to be in the mix. The Advanced division is always great compitition and with a couple of the players coming off of wins, it looks to be a slug fest! Good luck to everyone.

A true leader molds their followers into a community.

A true leader molds their followers into a community.

I just recently wrote the sentence above and placed it as a quote in my signature on an email. To me it has so many meanings and at the same time is so simple. What is funny is I placed it onto an email that was sent to a group of leaders. I wonder if they will read it and actually think of what it means. Or will they blow it off and think it is just another stupid quote. When you read the above sentence, what does it mean… Continue

EI Bag Tag Challenge on Sunday

The challenge is set and the players are assemblied. Apparently I am gonna get sliced and diced by the locals. Emerald Isle has always been a challenge for me as a lot of the holes are just out of my range. To make it even more challenging it seems all the greens and bunkers, which are OB, are right in my range. This combination means I must play the course as smart as possible and avoid stupid mistakes. One thing I know is that Emerald Isle is always fun and always a challenge. This will be a… Continue
