Golf Short Game Tips, Know How to Judge Distance Around the Green

A few years back I got one of the greatest short game tips from Dave Pelz. His book the «Short Game Bible» is the classic for golf short game instruction. Dave and almost every «professional» in the world recommends that we know our distance to the flag. This is important so that we can know which club to select and how long to make our back swing to get to the pin. As you watch the professional golfers you will notice that ideally they want to put themselves in a position where they can come into the green with a full swing of the club. The reality is that as weekend warriors we seldom achieve that ideal.

Often we are faced with situations where that full swing will get us in big trouble even with a super high lofted club. This is where short game practice is critically important if we want to improve our short game. On most driving ranges there is a short game practice area, that is marked with some of the distances to the pin. Those distances are usually from the practice tee to the practice green, but what about when you practice from 40 yards out or 25 or you name it. Typically these distances are not marked. The reason you need to know these distances is so that you can develop repeatable short swings with different clubs to give yourself an arsenal of strokes for your memory banks to repeat.

Learn To Visually Judge

When I first heard this idea, I literally took a 100 foot tape measure out to the course on a very slow day so that I could measure the distance to the pin and see what it looked like. After a few holes I was able to tell when I was 50 yards out or what ever yardage in round terms. You can do the same at a practice facility so that you will begin to know what 100, 75, 50, 25,15 yards look like. Very quickly you will get correct the feel for your short distances.

Now that you have the feel for it, you need to develop a swing to match your judging distance. Most of the «professionals» will teach some variation of this method. basically it is this. For each of the wedges you carry and even your 7,8,9 do you know how far they will travel with a quarter or a half or three quarter swing? This is something you might have to take a while to find out but when you know it, the information is very valuable to you.

Armed with the knowledge of how far a ball will travel you can begin making some good decisions when you are close to the green. More in a moment, but first a couple of caveats.

Learn to Execute the Swing

You will find all kinds of opinion on alignment. Arnold Palmer said to stand open, others will say straight. The open alignment is probably better to keep your body from blocking the shot. Next, most of the «professionals» agree that for short shots the hands should lead the club-face. This means that you set up with the ball closer to the back of your stance and you hands will be in front of your target-side leg. (left leg for the right-handed) With your weight favoring your target side you will then hit through the ball and finish high for the typical pitch shot. This setup will also tend to de-loft the club meaning that the angle of the face (being more upright) will now act like the next lower club number which means more distance.

Now. Imagine you are a clock!

Your head is 12:00, Your feet are 6:00 your target side is 1-5 and your back swing side is 7-11. What you want to know is; how far does a 7:30-8:00 swing travel for each of your wedges. ( I carry 4) Next, the same information for a 9:00 swing. Finally, the same information for an 11:00 swing. You will discover that some of the different wedges will travel the same distance for different swings but once you are finished you have 12 to 16 shots in your bag that you are confident to make and you know the distances each will go. For those shots that go the same distance there will be a big difference in loft.

Fill Your Arsenal

For instance a 60 degree lob wedge may travel 25 yards with an 11:00 swing, while a 48 degree pitching wedge may travel the same distance with an 8:00 swing. However, the difference of course is loft which gets the lob over the bunker to a close pin and stops versus the pitching wedge which will roll 10 feet after it lands on the green.

When you are armed with all these shots in your golf bag your short game gets to a new level in a hurry. The great thing is that you only really have to learn 3 repeatable swings to have 16 in your arsenal. Hit them straight and seldom!

There’s a Storm Brewing in Seattle and the LOB Is the Reason!

John Schneider, Pete Carroll and the Seahawks front office have been atop of the NFL the last few seasons. Yes, they have drafted unbelievably well. They have found diamonds in the rough in late rounds of the NFL Draft. Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Malcolm Smith, J.R. Sweezy, Byron Maxwell, (undrafted rookies) Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, & Thomas Rawls have all been a huge part of the Seattle Seahawks success. It is not the only reason though.

One of the biggest reasons is they are not afraid to walk away from players who haven’t performed or who have become a distraction. Percy Harvin was a huge acquisition. They gave a lot of money and draft compensation to get him. He was clearly a locker room distraction and was disrupting the Seahawks offense. It was clear on and off the field (at least for the Seahawk staff). They then traded him away for nothing because he didn’t fit the Seahawk mold. It didn’t matter how much they invested or what criticism they would receive. Yes they screwed up, but they don’t care. They are not going to hold on to a player that’s not working out or giving 110%. Cary William is the latest example. They invested 3 years and 18 million into Williams. He never developed the technique Carroll likes in his cornerbacks & Cary always went back to his old tendencies. The Seahawks defense was having to compensate for his bad play and it led to huge gaps in the defensive secondary. The return of Jeremy Lane and emergence of Deshawn Shead also had a lot to do with his departure. He didn’t work out, so they move on. Many teams don’t follow this method and it almost always leads to disaster for them. It also needs mentioned that Seahawks owner Paul Allen has given them the keys to the kingdom. They have the power to make the moves they need to. Paul Allen leaves the football affairs to John Schneider and doesn’t meddle in player roster moves. Sure, he may have an opinion on some decisions but he lets them decide. Other teams envy the front office the Seahawks have but aren’t as quick to make the right decision, when it needs to be made. This is no problem for the Hawks office and it lets them fill the need at the position faster. They either promote from within (like Deshawn Shead) or find a player off the street that will work better.

When the Seahawks move on from a player like Harvin and Williams it also encourages another philosophy they love to implement, competition. When they cut ties with players that don’t work out, it sends a message. If your not going to compete everyday and contribute to their success, you will get cut. It doesn’t matter how much money is invested or how big of an acquisition the player is. He won’t last long if he’s not dedicated or doing his job.

The Seahawks front office makes the tough decisions others won’t make, they admit when their wrong. They motivate their guys. They keep the hunger and competitive nature alive in players. It’s the formula an NFL football team needs to succeed, even if they have to admit they screwed up. It is also the reason the Seahawks in 2016 have developed depth that may create the perfect storm.

The Marseille Scandal – How Blind Ambition Won and Lost European Glory

That was certainly the case with the French club Olympique de Marseille of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Marseille were the most successful club in France as resplendent in their brilliant white soccer uniforms they won the French first division (Ligue 1) four seasons in a row, and their brilliant run of success culminated in 1993, when they became the first ever (and till now the only) French club to win the European Cup.

The man behind Marseille’s success was Bernard Tapie. Tapie was a highly successful businessman and sports lover who already ran a cycling team and had been a minister in the French government when he took over Marseille Football Club and decided to propel it to the very top, not just in France but all over Europe and eventually the World. To pursue his vision Tapie invested a large sum of money in the club, signing some of the cream of European players of the era, including Jean-Pierre Papin, Chris Waddle, Klaus Allofs, Abedi Pelé, Didier Deschamps, Marcel Desailly, Rudi Völler and Eric Cantona. On the coaching front, Tapie, a highly charismatic personality, even succeeded in persuading Kaiser Franz Beckenbauer to leave his beloved Bayern Munich to manage the club for a season

A man of tremendous ambition and drive, Bernard Tapie saw his dreams become a reality within just a few seasons, when in May 1993. Basile Boli scored the only goal in the European Champions League final against A.C. Milan held in the Olympic Stadium in Munich. After 38 barren years, France could finally boast a team that had won a major European competition. It seems unbelievable that just six weeks later, Marseille’s and Tapie’s world would be turned upside down as he and his beloved club would be involved in a scandal that would set the club back five years and tarnish every victory that they had gained in the years that Tapie was at the helm.

The scandal broke when a player from the mid-table French club Valenciennes, Christophe Robert made allegations to the press that a Marseille player Jean-Jacques Eydelie had made an offer to him and to his team- mates, to throw the game between the clubs that had taken place a few weeks before the final. Robert admitted that he had accepted the bribe of 250,000 francs yet overcome by guilt had not spent it, and instead had buried it in his Aunt’s garden. The matter made its way into the police hand’s and after some grueling interrogation Eydelie admitted that he had bribed Robert, but under pressure from the club’s then general manager, Jean-Pierre Bernes.. From there on all roads lead to president Bernard Tapie. Tapie eventfully confessed that he had authorized the attempted bribing of the Valenciennes players as he wanted to have the league title sown up so as the players could be free to concentrate on the final against Milan.

Marseille were stripped of the French title that season and later relegated to the second division not just because of the bribing scandal over financial regularities. Tapie, Bernes and Eydelie were later imprisoned.

The bribing scandal forced Marseille to relinquish their 1992-93 Division 1 title and the right to play in the UEFA Champions League 1993-94, the 1993 European Super Cup and the 1993 Intercontinental Cup, as well as being demoted to the second division. The scant compensation that Tapie could derive from the whole sordid affair was that his beloved Marseille were not stripped of their Champions League.

Since the scandal of 1993 Marseille have failed to win a single trophy and Tapie has gone missing from the French football landscape

Sexiest, Most Beautiful Model

I think I’m going blind, although they say that’s caused by too much…so, maybe I’m not!

I’ve been through my copy of FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the world 2007 (always a firm favourite) but something is horribly wrong!

From that first picture of Jessica Alba looking like a less attractive version of Ursula Andrews to Hayden Panettiere at No 6 whoever she is. What about Emily Scott at No 9 whose only claim to fame was showing off her implants on Celebrity Love Island…not that I’m complaining of course!

It was when I saw a full page spread of the girlfriend of Tottenham Hotspur’s Theo Wolcott in at number 96 that I realised that the world had gone mad!

Could it be some underhand Blairesque type ‘babe’ corruption scandal that’s going on? Is Max Clifford paying FHM to put in D list celebrities? Or maybe they used a premium rate £1.50 a minute phone line to select the winners. Something is not quite right!

So why is my magazine already falling apart at the seams and where are the missing beauties?

Jamelia, Tina O’Brien and that Sammy girl who went out with Charlie, Roxanne Pallett from Emmerdale (classic TV), Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Nigella Lawson (isn’t she lovely), Kirsty Gallagher, the girlfriend of Roman Abramovitch (say no more!), Cat Deeley, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz…uh oh!…I’m feeling faint!

There are loads more obvious beauties missing – for instance, where am I? Ok, so I’m a guy but I’m still damn gorgeous…and no, I’ve not had implants, whatever my Doctor says, totally ‘au naturel’ – apart from a touch of Lipo! Can someone help me as my minds going fuzzy with all these beautiful women running through it?

My question is: Have FHM completely skimped on Jessica Alba’s bikini budget? I think she would have looked much sexier in this…but then, so would I!

At least the FHM voters haven’t totally lost the plot, the day that happens will be the day that Kelly Brooks and Keeley don’t even make it in the Top 10.

Have your say! Do you agree with FHM? Is Jessica Alba the sexiest woman in the world? Vote here! (look for Mio Destino Poll at bottom left corner of webpage)

How to Find Discount Bodybuilding Substances

As any serious bodybuilder knows, it is difficult to be in the sport without addressing the question of whether to use supplements. There are several decent products out there, but they can get quite expensive. Your best option is to locate quality discount bodybuilding supplements to make sure that your muscles are properly nourished and to enhance your efforts for a much lower cost. Keep reading to learn about ways to find bodybuilding supplements that don't cost an arm and a leg.

Choosing the Best Supplements for You

Knowing exactly which supplements hold the best value for your dollar is the best way to get on the right track to find discount bodybuilding supplements. Most bodybuilders – both amateur and professional – agree that creatine, glutamine and protein are the best supplements on the market today. Bodybuilders also need decent vitamins and mineral supplements. A few other commonly used supplements include various amino acids, nitric oxide, and anabolic flavones. Talking with a professional trainer about discount bodybuilding supplements is a good way to avoid overspending on substances that won't really work for your individual needs anyway.

Where to Find These Supplements

After you have decided which supplements are best for your program, you'll want to spend a little time searching for the lowest prices on bodybuilding supplements. There are numerous choices to choose from when it comes time to purchase them, from retail stores to online sites. In fact, there is so much available in the world of supplements that it can be quite confusing to those who are new to the sport. Many bodybuilders choose to buy their supplements from an online retailer. This is because the low overhead maintained by online sites enables them selling their supplements at a lower cost than retail stores. Also, it is very easy to compare prices online than it is to travel from one store to the next.

Some retailers have developed frequent buyer programs, so you may be able to receive a discount from a particular store if you are willing to be a loyal customer and shop only there for your bodybuilding supplements. Using customer cards gets many members in-store discounts and coupons. Ask the employees at your favorite store if they have such a thing, as this is a very good way to save money on the supplements you use regularly.

Using supplements helps enhance your efforts at the gym and saves you cash as a consequence. Take the time to shop for the best value and the best deal possible but do not neglect the quality.

What’s on Your Business Card?

A professional business card says more about you and your business than any other tool in your marketing arsenal. You need a card that looks good, tells what you do and makes it easy to contact you.

Here’s how to use the necessary ingredients to create a great card

Your name should be the biggest part of the card. Right there where the eye can pick it out without searching.

Avoid the old trap of name and phone number in 6 point type in the lower right corner.

Your card’s purpose is to get people to remember YOU and contact YOU. So put YOU in the middle, big. A fancy company logo is not you. YOU are the most important element of your card.

The second most important element of your new business card should be your preferred method of communication. If you are a cell phone junkie, your cell phone number should be the biggest on the card. If eMail is your thing, your address should be prominent and near your name. No need to post every contact method. An option would be to add your company logo, albeit small, in the corner of your card.

Don’t use clip art to create your logo. No logo looks a lot better than one from page 23 of the clip art book. You can have logos professionally designed for less than $500 bucks.

Next, you need a one sentence version of your elevator speech. Condense your elevator speech to one sentence that will fit on your business card, under your name and contact info. Across the bottom is a good spot (An elevator speech is what you say to someone who asks «What do you do?» in an elevator going down from the 25th floor).

Your name, contact information and shortened elevator speech (let’s call it a selling sentence) are more important than any other elements of your business card. More important than paper stock (always use a high gloss card stock), colors (0nly in a photo or logo) or fonts (easy to read). Cards DO get passed around.

If someone who has never met you is given your card, they must be able to determine who you are and how you can help them. «Joe Jones, Plumber» might work, but it doesn’t convey what you can do for them. «Joe Jones, I show up on time, smell good and fix your leak, guaranteed», says a whole lot more. Now your business card is selling YOU.

More Comebacks Than Rocky

Having won 10 Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups, two Champions League titles and five FA Community Shields, Paul Scholes’s passion for Manchester United is unequivocal. He made a winning return to the side last season but will his decision to put his boots back on prove to be the right one? Let’s look at other athletes that have made comebacks with contrasting fortunes…

Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan retired from basketball in 1993. Whilst he cited lack of desire and ambition after leading the Chicago Bulls to three championship titles, it was suggested that the decision was based on the recent murder of his father. Jordan returned to basketball in 1995 and led the Chicago Bulls to three more championship titles. He was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame in 2009 with its website declaring him «… the greatest basketball player of all time.»

Lance Armstrong

Cycling legend, Lance Armstrong, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996 aged only 25, with a chance of survival at less than 40%. However, two years later he returned to the sport and went on to claim seven Tour de France titles, creating a rivalry with Jan Ullrich that is viewed as one of the greatest conflicts in sporting history.

Kim Clijsters

At 24 Kim Clijsters retired from professional tennis in 2007 having won three Grand Slams and been runner up in four more. She stated that her health and private family life were more important to her as she was constantly beset by injuries. After becoming a mother in 2008 she returned to the sport the very next year winning The US Open in 2009 and 2010 and the Australian Open title in 2011. She now boasts a total tournament tally of 41 WTA singles titles and 11 WTA doubles titles and is the only mother to have won a major title since Yvonne Goolagong in 1980.

Michael Schumacher

Few people have dominated their sport in the way Michael Schumacher did. Not only did Schumacher win the World Championship an unprecedented seven times, he continues to hold many driver records including most race victories, fastest laps, pole positions, points scored and most races won in a single season (13). He became the only driver in Formula One history to finish in the top three in every race of a season and then also broke the record for most consecutive podium finishes. Having retired in 2007, two years later he made a comeback with Team Sauber Mercedes but his former success has eluded him. Last season he failed to register a podium place and finished 316 points behind eventual winner, Sebastian Vettel.

Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson burst into boxing by becoming the youngest boxer to conquer the WBC, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles. His sporting career halted in 1992 when, following a very high profile trial, he served three years in prison for rape. Tyson made a series of comebacks but lost his heavyweight crowns to Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis. Despite earning over £300 million dollars during his boxing career he was declared bankrupt in 2003.

So was Paul Scholes’s decision the right one? As a Football PR agency we would love to hear your thoughts – tweet us @ENSLtdsportPR

An Interview With Erotic Romance Author Nadia Aidan, Author of ENTHRALLED

Nadia Aidan lives, works and writes on the East Coast in the United States. Under her real name, she holds a PhD in Political Science and Public Policy and by day she works as an Assistant Professor. In addition to writing erotic romances, Nadia enjoys reading other authors, playing flag football, studying muay thai, working out, listening to music, and scuba diving.

Her other interests include collecting Top Cow comics, especially Witchblade and Tomb Raider. She loves professional football and soccer. Her favorite teams are the Washington Redskins and Manchester United, respectively. Nadia loves watching, reading about, and writing about strong, assertive heroines which is why she is an enduring fan of Fight Girls, Xena, Buffy, and La Femme Nikita!

Thank you for giving us this interview, Nadia. Can we start out by having you tell us whether you are published for the first time or are you multi-published?

Enthralled is my debut novel and my first published work of fiction.

What was the name of your very first book regardless of whether it was published or not and, if not published, why?

Sweet Revenge is the name of the very first book. It has gone through extensive revisions and is currently under review so it looks like it will get published after all!

For your first published book, how many rejections did you go through before you either found a mainstream publisher, self-published it, or paid a vanity press to publish it?

Enthralled was never submitted to a publishing house. I wanted to self-publish the first novel that I released to the public. However, the first novel I wrote, Sweet Revenge, was rejected by one publishing house and then received a revise and resubmit. As I said before it is currently under review again, having been revised; However, this ALL came after Enthralled was already in the publication pipeline.

How did the rejections make you feel and what did you do to overcome the blows?

Well my day job involves A LOT of rejection so I am used to it! As an Assistant Professor it can sometimes take as long as TWO years to get just one article published – of course after dozens of rejection letters! I see the process of trying to get fiction works published as no different. A rejection sucks no matter what but you have to push it aside and trudge ahead. If you don't believe in your book then nobody else will so when you get a rejection, I recommend that first you burn the letter, go out and have a drink with your friends that night, and then get back to trying to get that book published!

When your first book was published, who published it and why did you choose them?

iUniverse published Enthralled. iUniverse was chosen over other self publishing / vanity houses because it is professional and efficient and I found that their goals were in line with mine regarding how I wanted to publish and market my book.

How did it make you feel to become published for the first time and how did you celebrate?

It was an amazing feeling – still is! You have this tremendous sense of accomplishment when you see something that you have been working on for a long time FINALLY in print. Seeing the book published was celebration enough!

What was the first thing you did as for as promotion when you were published for the first time?

First I sent several copies to reviewers then I listed myself on popular romance writing sites such as, Author Island, Night Owl Romance, Love Bites Romance and Coffee Times Romance where I made sure that I was listed as a featured or debut author.

If you had to do it over again, would you have chosen another route to be published?

Not at all! In the future I would like to do all those important things that fiction novelists can do like secure an agent, publishing with a royalty paying publisher and negotiate an advance! BUT this time I wanted to do this on my own. I wanted to see how successful I could be with no big publishing house backing me.

Have you been published since then and how have you grown as an author?

Enthralled was JUST released so no. Although, I do have three novellas currently under review and I entered one of my excerpts from another novella into the Brava Novella Contest. I am convinced that being productive has made me grow leaps and bounds as an author. The more I write the better I get. Mainly because I am forced to be more creative in how I structure my stories and the ideas that I base them upon.

Looking back since the early days when you were trying to get published, what do you think you could have done differently to speed things up? What kind of mistakes could you have avoided?

The biggest mistake I made was not hiring an editor at the very beginning – long before the fifth or sixth draft which is when I did it! I believe that if I hired an editor after maybe my second draft that I would have saved myself a lot of time and money in the end, not to mention the added frustration that came with it!

What has been the biggest accomplishment you have achieved since becoming published?

Seeing the novel receive good reviews has turned out to represent a tremendous accomplishment to me. And while I don't believe good reviews are validate my work, it does make me feel like at least there is SOMEONE out there who enjoyed reading my book and if there is one then maybe there are others!

If you could have chosen another profession, what would that profession be?

Well, BESIDES taking Halle Berry's job and ENTIRE life, there isn't anything else that I would rather be doing.

Would you give up being an author for that profession or have you combined the best of both worlds?

Fortunately I don't have to make that choice. Academia is very flexible and allows me the summers, winter break and many, many hours where I can write AND still get my other work done. To be honest, I don't see myself having to give up being an author BUT if I was forced to make a choice then I would walk away from academia in a heartbeat because writing is what I truly love.

How do you see yourself in ten years?

First of all I intend to be a TENURED professor by then. Once I get tenure I will have even more time to devote to my writing career! And as far as that is concerned I hope to have an agent and a multi book contract with a publishing house. In ten years I would like to see myself as a household name in the erotic romance genre.

Any final words for writers who dream of being published one day?

The first thing those who are interested in publishing should do is simply WRITE the book. I meet many people who say they want to be an author but when I ask them how their book is going I am disappointed to hear that they aren't even writing! I know it is hard to find the time and energy to sit down and do it but you have to if you want to see your work published. Also, if you are interested in becoming an author but you're not quite ready to sit down and write or submit your work then you should try to become familiar with your market and your genre. Even before I committed to publishing my book I was learning about my market by attending conferences and joining listservs and romance writing organizations. I also made sure that I kept up with market trends and became an avid consumer of new releases so that I would know what was out there. However, in the end the first step is to simply believe in your passion and the other stuff will eventually fall into place.

Premier League Match Time: Bolton Vs Blackburn

It's Premier League match time at Reebok Stadium on Sunday, December 12, as Bolton host Blackburn in match week 17.

Bolton are coming off a 1-0 loss away to Man City in match week 16. Bolton had a mediocre outing in which Davies and Elmander were completely stifled by the Man City back-line. Joe Hart between the Manchester City posts was hardly tested, barring a free kick by Petrov that Hart kept out easily, and a Ricketts free-kick that almost helped Bolton equalise owing to an error by the 'keeper.

Owen Coyle's squad could not capitalise on a 10-man City after Kolarov was sent off in 79th minutes for a rough tackle on Ricketts.

Blackburn atoned for their abject 7-1 thrashing by Manchester United in match week 15 with an impressive 3-0 win against Wolves built on the back of Pedersen's set-piece wizardry. The Norwegian had a hand in each of the two goals by Dunn, and Nelsen.

Early in the game, Blackburn's back-line was found wanting, particularly Salgado who was slow on his feet, and Wolves had scoring opportunities in the first 15 minutes. But it was Salgado's long ball to Richards that set up the second goal on 42 minutes after Emerton latched onto the ball flicked into his path by Richards, to get a left-footer home. Robinson had a good day between the posts for Blackburn as he kept out several scoring attempts by Wolves.

After Bolton are firmly ensconced in sixth place after 16 games, while Blackburn who went up to eighth could be leapfrogged by Sunderland, Newcastle or Liverpool after their respective games in match week 16.

Head to head, in 22 league matches between the sides, Blackburn enjoy a 8-3 win-loss ratio against Bolton, with 11 games drawn.

Bolton's home record has been reasonable with a solitary loss in eight games hosted, but they would want to improve on their win percentage with just three of those games won with the remaining four drawn.

Blackburn's away record has been good, too, with the Rovers losing just 2 of eight games on the road, with four wins.

On current form, you can expect a hard-fought game between two well-matched teams.

The following players were in Bolton's starting eleven against Man City: Jaaskelainen, Ricketts, Cahill, Knight, Robinson, Lee, Davies, Muamba, Petrov, Elmander and Davies. Taylor, Moreno and Klasnik played as substitutes.

Blackburn's starting eleven against Wolves comprised Robinson, Salgado, Samba, Nelsen, Givet, Jones, Emerton, Dunn, Pedersen, Diouf and Roberts. The substitutes used were Diouf, Morris and Mwaruwari.
