Hello Readers! I’ve been absent the last few months but far from inactive. I’ve been playing golf in Minnesota where the season’s short compared to seasons in Florida, California, Arizona, etc.
I’ve been researching and testing some of the latest new golf apps for smart devices, such as tablets and mobile phones. I’ve also been gathering information.
And finally, I successfully completed the 2-day TPI Level 1 Golf Fitness Workshop in Phoenix, AZ — a proud moment for me. I’ve been high on fitness, but especially golf fitness for sometime and wanted to expand my horizons. I visit the TPI, Core Performance and Drive 495 sites often. And if one is good, then two must be better. I belong to two fitness gyms.
I’m infused with new material for this blog. Stay tuned.
Larry Dorman’s tribute to Ken Venturi honors him well. I never met Ken Venturi in person but I often felt I had because I own Ken Venturi’s Encyclopedia of Golf — the complete 8 volume set of VHS Cassettes. To protect them I paid a professional to transfer the cassettes to DVDs. I learned much from the golf instructions on the cassettes because Ken Venturi delivered his instructions clearly. Thanks Ken Venturi for sharing your knowledge of golf with me. I enjoyed not only your golf lessons but also your broadcasting style very much. I will miss you.
A Tribute in Memory of Ken Venturi
Ken Venturi as an Amateur Player
Ken Venturi almost became the first and only amateur to win the Masters in 1956. He held a 4-shot lead at the start of the fourth day, often called “moving day”. He came so close; he finished runner-up to professional Jackie Burke Jr. To read Venturi bios and see photos, go to the following URLs:
