He's Back! - The Barkley Hitch - The Masters


The golf world has returned to 'somewhat' normalcy once again.  Just a couple short weeks after his return, Tiger Woods once again proved just how good he is.  Starting FIVE shots behind, he capt
ures his first win of the season at Arnie's tournament no less at BayHill in Florida.  This course has a set of holes call The Bear Trap - Tough golf at its finest.  If Tiger wins a few more tournaments and sticks a major or two in his trophy case this year, he is a shoe in for comeback player of the year, IN ADDITION to probably winning the Fed-EX cup, the top money position and the utmost respect from anyone who doesn't think golf is a sport.  

Charles Barkley =  Hitch, Spasm or Head Case?

I have always found some perverted fascination with the golf swing of Charles Barkley.  Some tell their kids to turn away, I on the other hand think that anyone who loves the game as much as Sir Charles, needed to get some help.  He's got a killer short game, but getting his ball within about 50 yards is an adventure at best.  So, with the encouragement of TW, Hank Haney has been working on Barkley on a Golf Channel show called The Haney Project.  Well, I got to say I am loving it.  Barkley knows his swing sting, yet he's out there on national TV enduring thousands of swings, physical training, and mental abuse.  His golf swing is looking MUCH better and it might not be long where the oddsmakers will have to thing of something other than will Charles land in last place at Tahoe or not.

The Masters

The Masters is less than a week away and we hope to be able to watch as much as possible.  Par 3 Tournament, early rounds, we won't be able to get enough around here.


Today's update has 150 added or updated courses (actually just a very few are updates.)  NICE!  The international course contributions slowed down with only 15 courses, BUT we added a new country to the GolfTraxx Community; Kazakhstan! with two courses.  Welcome to GolfTraxx.

In the US, we had several new users hit Google Earth hard and they supplied the GolfTraxx community some really great work.  Connecticut, Colorado, Indiana, and Michigan were all strong sources of courses in addition to the regular strong showings by CA, VA, & TX.
