Blog Stuff


I know I’ve been gone for nearly three months, but I haven’t given up on Game Under Repair.

I guess you could say fatherhood, coupled with a bit of golf writing burnout, has caused me to go on a hiatus after maintaining the blog regularly for two years. I’ll be back.

In the meantime, feel free to check out my other project–especially if you like reading fiction. Check out 101 Books and let me know what you think of this crazy quest.

See you guys soon.

I’m on a brief posting hiatus during the holidays. Golfing frivolity will return next week, with more pet peeves and other scatter-brained meaningless posts about this maddening sport!

Happy New Year!

Armchair Golf is currently featuring another edition of my Golf Pet Peeves series.

Go over to Armchair Golf and refresh your memory of The Golf Channel Guy.

Golf Pet Peeve #9 to come here on the blog later this week.

Thanks to Neil over at Armchair Golf for featuring my article about the PGA Tour’s season-ending popularity struggles.

Armchair Golf is one of the best and most popular golf blogs on the net. Neil does a great job of updating and maintaining his blog–much better than I do!

Anyway, check out my article here, or read my previous feature on his blog. While you’re there, spend some time browsing the rest of the site. Great, great golf blog.

Thanks to the four of you who have frequented my blog over the last year.

Actually, this has been more successful than I thought it would be. I’m not much of a self-marketer, but the blog has managed to bring in nearly 14,000 hits in the first year—not including my own visits.

For someone who expected about 10 page views a day—all from family and friends—I guess that’s not too terribly bad. But my purpose in writing this blog wasn’t  to attract visitors; my purpose was to write about a game I love.

This is post number 175 since my first post.  I really have no idea how long I will keep this up, but I still enjoy it for now. I’m not sure what year two holds.

In three weeks, I’ll embark on my first competitive golf tournament in about ten years—all while training for a half marathon. It’s just a weekend tournament, but, nonetheless, it’s competitive golf and I’ve always enjoyed that.

I have plenty of pet peeves to still write about. And perhaps I’ll bring back the Chip Shots column in the off-season. Besides all that, we’re still waiting on Tiger to win that first major of 2009. Will it happen at the PGA Championship? We’ll see.

Thanks for checking out Game Under Repair. Keep coming back.

Please excuse my recent hiatus here on Game Under Repair.

Nine days of vacation kept me away from the computer, though the trip to Florida didn’t keep me off the golf course.

I played three times last week and took a one-hour lesson from a Golf Magazine Top 100 teacher.

My upcoming posts will be about the Amelia Island trip, the lesson, and my recent long weekend at Hilton Head. Maybe we’ll get something in there about Tiger as well.

Stay tuned.

We’re live with a new template and a new custom header. Thanks to my coworker, Chris Sandlin, for help with the header.

Masters’ coverage to come, as well as a recap of one of the worst and coldest golfing experiences of my life, last week in Boise, Idaho.

Thanks for checking out the new blog!
