Release The “Inner Tiger”

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Tiger Woods has inspired a whole new generation of golfers! What a thrill it is to watch all of these youngsters taking golf lesson programs all over the region. Parents and young golfers alike all want to be “the next Tiger.”

Parents desperately want to see their child excel at this game which often absorbs their own free time. Knowing this, my parents casually introduced my sister and I to the game as soon as we were allowed on the golf course. They began by just having us walk along or pull their carts-there was no forcing the issue of actually playing.

It was because my parents spent so much time at the golf course that my sister and I began to want to try this game that my parents were so good at. I believe looking back that wanting to try the game was a big motivator. There was no one dragging us to the golf course and demanding that we take lessons or play, otherwise I probably would not be where I am today.

A student’s success comes from having an instructor that the he/she can relate to, understand, and can ultimately see improvement in their own game. In some cases students enjoy instructors who are rigorous and demanding while others enjoy an instructor who is patient and pushes the student at a slower rate. In any case, parents need to ask their kids about the instructor and stay with them if it’s a good thing for the junior golfer – not just the parent!

Playing tournaments is a whole new element for those being introduced to the game. Again, encourage your child to compete but don’t force the issue. Many students are afraid of being put in a win-lose situation especially if they are not confident with their game. They don’t need to have a 10 or less handicap to play tournaments as most people believe.

As with adult tournaments, most are “flighted” according to whatever handicap you have. Therefore, a junior will be competing with others of his or her own ability. Tournaments and programs are offered in my city, Colorado Springs, as well as throughout the state of Colorado during the summer months. I have been involved with most of the local programs and would like to share them with you.

LPGA Girls Golf Program of Colorado Springs: The only program just for girls in the area. Designed to introduce girls to the game with weekly instruction and playing privileges at Cherokee Ridge Golf Course. Call 576-9176 for more information.

Parks and Recreation: Offers a summer program for juniors at Valley Hi. This includes once a week instruction along with playing privileges. Call 578-6926 for more information.

Pikes Peak Junior League: If your son or daughter already has some golf skills and knows how to play the game on the course-then there is the Pikes Peak Junior League where juniors compete for a spot on a weekly team at their golf course. Then, those qualifying get to play a different course each week around the area-very affordable and promotes great interaction among local junior golfers. Contact your local pro shop for information.

CJGA-Colorado Junior Golf Association provides tournaments for all ages across the state during the summer. Check with your local pro shop.

No matter the level or enthusiasm of your junior golfer, there is some program that should appeal to their needs. Remember to check out the instructor for experience and knowledge in the game along with their teaching style. Also, check to see the time involved in the program, expectations and goals of the instructor along with those of your junior’s. By supporting Junior Golf, you are ensuring the future of this great game and many “Tigers” to come!

Golf Tip Of The Month
We often have a lot of wind this time of year. If you can adjust accordingly, the day can be like any other without the wind. Wind causes us to be more anxious and speed up our swing.

Stay calm and if you are hitting into the wind you will need to use at least one club more. Going uphill try using two extra club lengths.

Teeing off-make sure you tee the ball a little lower so it doesn’t get caught up in the air as long causing you to lose distance. Generally, hitting into the wind you want to use a less lofted club(3,4,or 5 iron). However, downwind you want to use less club with more loft so the wind can help carry the ball(8 or 9 iron).

Tiger Woods Apologize To School Parents

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Last time,Tiger Woods apologized to his wife, this time to parents of children at the preschool that his 2-year-old daughter attends, an Orlando television station reported Tuesday.

WFTV reported on its Web site that it has obtained a letter that Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, wrote to parents of children attending Premier Academy to apologize for increased media scrutiny around the school.

Media coverage around Woods and his family has been intense since the Nov. 27 accident outside his home led to revelations that the world’s No. 1 golfer had been cheating on his wife. Tiger Woods did not make his first public appearance until Friday at the TPC Sawgrass clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Woods’ wife did not attend his nationally televised appearance, and photographers were seen outside the Premier Academy that day. WFTV says an off-duty sheriff’s deputy has been hired to sit outside the school.

The station did not say when the letter was sent.

During his 13 1/2-minute statement, Woods lashed out at paparazzi for chasing after his family, including his daughter, Sam.

“However, my behavior doesn’t make it right for the media to follow my two-and-a-half-year-old daughter to school and report the school’s location,” Woods said. “They staked out my wife and they pursued my mom. Whatever my wrongdoings, for the sake of my family, please leave my wife and kids alone.” Otherwise, Woods have the support of his mother.

Woods thanks parents for their support and did not indicate he would remove his daughter from the school.

For Sam, that normalcy means attending the school that she enjoys so much.

Tiger Woods Was Unsure About When To Return

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Tiger Woods reentered public life on Friday morning with a prepared statement delivered at PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. By turns solemn, shaky and defiant, Woods repeatedly apologized for the “irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in.” Woods told both his audience and a riveted TV viewership, “I know I have bitterly disappointed all of you. I have made you question who I am and how I could have done the things I did. I am embarrassed I have put you in this position. For all that I have done, I am so sorry. I have a lot to atone for.” 

Dressed in a blue blazer, Woods had glassy eyes and his voice was occasionally shaky, but he displayed a more characteristic fight in defending his wife, Elin Nordegren, and demanding privacy for his family during his 13-minute address. Woods did not offer any details about the car crash in the early morning hours of Nov. 27 that touched off the tabloid feeding-frenzy and ultimately devoured his image as a clean-cut family man. 

But alluding to speculation that a quarrel with Elin may have precipitated the smashup, Woods said, “There has never been an episode of domestic violence in our marriage. Ever. Elin has displayed enormous grace and poise throughout this ordeal. Elin deserves praise, not blame.” Talking directly to the media, Woods said, “Whatever my wrongdoings, for the sake of my family, please leave my wife and kids alone.” 

Tiger Woods offered few clues to a golf community that is anxious to know when he will return to action. Acknowledging that he has been in therapy “receiving guidance for the issues I was facing,” Woods said that “starting tomorrow I will leave for more treatment and more therapy.” He added, “I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don’t when that day will be. I don’t rule out it will be this year.” 

But this solemn gathering was about Woods’s failings away from the golf course. Woods rightfully acknowledged that he has a long way to go to regain the trust and respect of his family, friends and fans. 

After completing his statement on Friday morning, Woods haltingly walked to the front row of seated guests and embraced his mother in a long, teary hug.

Tiger Woods appologizes

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Tiger Woods made a public apology and another appeal for measure of privacy on Wednesday, and he acknowledged  that he let his family down without being specific. ”I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves,” Woods said on his Web site following a magazine on which an alleged affair is reported.

It was his longest statement since a middle-of-the-night car crash outside his Florida home last week set off the greatest media scrutiny of Woods’ career and his 5-year-old marriage to former model Elin Nordegren. He did not go into detail and said he would deal with his ”personal failings” with his family.

”Those feelings should be shared by us alone,” he said.

Shortly after the investigation of the car accident ended Tuesday with a $164 citation for careless driving, Us Weekly reported that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress claims she had a 31-month affair with the world’s No. 1 golfer.

About three hours before Woods’ statement, the magazine released what it said was a voice mail — provided by the waitress, Jaimee Grubbs — that Woods left on her phone three days before his accident.

”I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves,” Woods said on his Web site. ”For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.”

Woods’ career — as a golfer, a pitchman and perhaps the most recognized athlete in the world — has been largely without blemish since he turned pro at age 20.

Three of his sponsors — Nike, Gatorade and EA Sports — expressed support or commitment to Woods. Gillette said it had no plans to change its marketing programs. AT&T declined comment.

In the most critical comment from a player, Jesper Parnevik said he owed Nordegren an apology for introducing her to Woods. She once worked as a nanny for the Parnevik family.

”We probably thought he was a better guy than he is,” Parnevik told The Golf Channel from West Palm Beach, Fla., where he is in the final stage of PGA Tour qualifying.

Police said Woods’ wife told them she smashed out the back window of his Cadillac Escalade SUV with a golf club to help get him out after he struck a fire hydrant and tree.

”I would probably need to apologize to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of a 3-iron,” Parnevik said, adding that he has not spoken to Woods since the accident.

”It’s a private thing, of course,” the Swede said. ”But when you are the guy he is — the world’s best athlete — you should think more before you do stuff … and maybe not ‘Just do it,’ like Nike says.”

But other professional athletes had sympathy for Woods.

Jason Taylor walked into the Miami Dolphins’ locker room and saw ESPN running a tease about Woods. He reached up and turned off the TV. ”Nobody’s damned business,” Taylor said.

Minnesota Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell lives in the same Isleworth gated community as Woods outside Orlando, Fla., and said it was ”crazy” in the neighborhood. He said his wife told him paparazzi were everywhere and helicopters hovered overhead.

”My wife is a blonde and wears sunglasses in Florida, so every time she comes out of the gate, they’re snapping pictures,” Longwell said. ”It’s a different thing than we’ve ever faced down there. It’s certainly a new wrinkle to it.

”You just pray for his family,” Longwell said. ”You pray for his wife and kids. Just pray that if what’s coming out is true that he can learn from it and move on.”

In its final report released Wednesday, the Florida Highway Patrol said Woods caused $3,200 in property damage, was not wearing a seat belt and was traveling 30 mph in a 25 mph zone.

The six-page report — which did not include statements from Woods, his wife or any witnesses — said Woods’ SUV rubbed up against bushes, crossed over a curb, onto a grass median and into a row of hedges before striking the fire hydrant and a tree. Damage to his Cadillac Escalade was estimated at $8,000.

Far more damaging to his image was the Us Weekly cover story.

Grubbs told the magazine she met Woods at a Las Vegas nightclub the week after the 2007 Masters — two months before Woods’ wife gave birth to their first child.

In the voice mail released by the magazine, a man says to Grubbs:

”Hey, it’s, uh, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Um, can you please, uh, take your name off your phone. My wife went through my phone. And, uh, may be calling you. If you can, please take your name off that and, um, and what do you call it just have it as a number on the voice mail, just have it as your telephone number. That’s it, OK. You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly. All right. Bye.”

The Associated Press could’t confirm if Woods was the caller. But the first statement on Friday which spoke of a ‘minor accident’ after the car crash fueled speculation about a domestic dispute all around.

Kultida Takes Pride In Tiger

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Some friends, some colleagues took part in Tigerâ??s press conference totally 40 people, including his mother. They testified his apology to public. Kultida Woods said she was “so proud to be his mother” after watching son Tiger deliver his statement to the public.

Speaking to reporters later, Kultida said: “You know what? I’m so proud to be his mother. Period. This thing, it teaches him, just like golf. golf clubs help him,then media can help him.

“When he changes a swing,he wants to get better. He will start getting better, it’s just like that. Golf is just like life, when you make a mistake, you learn from your mistake and move on stronger. That’s the way he is.

“As a human being everyone has faults, makes mistakes and sins. We all do. But, we move on when we make a mistake and learn from it. I am upset the way media treated him like he’s a criminal. He didn’t kill anybody, he didn’t do anything illegal. They’ve being carrying on from thanksgiving until now, that’s not right!

“People don’t understand that Tiger has a very good heart and soul,” she said, citing the role of his foundation in helping kids and also in Thailand.

“Sometimes I think there is a complete double standard. He tried to improve himself.

“The tabloids and newspapers just killed him, held him back. To me it looked like a double standard.”

When you make a mistake you learn from it and move on, that’s the way life is, that’s a human being. Forgive him if he is willing to correct himself, then we can see him with Nike golf again.

happy day!

Tiger Woods Girlfriend Joanna Jagoda Defends Elin Over Crash and Mistress

Monday, July 26th, 2010

This past month has not been the greatest time of best-golfer-on-the-planet Tiger Woods. Not too long ago raunchy tabloid magazine The National Inquirer paid a woman named Ashley Sampson $25,000 for a story about Tiger Woods Mistress Rachel Uchitel. However, Uchitel, a sexy New York city VIP party hostess, denied they so much as exchanged text messages, and that she had met the Tiger but that’s about it. The rumor said that the two were together recently in Melbourne for the Australian Masters where Tiger probably won ten trophies with one putt. However, all parties denied this was true.

Fast forward two days later, and for some reason at 2:25 AM Tiger Woods was found laying in the street nodding in and out of consciousness by the police. APPARENTLY, in the 911 recording you can hear Elin running out to see what happened, which would effectively crush rumors that she had in fact chased him out of the house with a golf club in furious irony.

The rumor said that after Tiger Woods hottie wife Elin Nordegrin (an swedish model) found out about Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel, she scratched up his face, chased him out of the house with a golf club, and as he tried to escape backing out of the driveway in his Cadliac Escalade, she smashed the rear windshield with a golf club. However, to me this seems like tabloid exaggeration, as Elin herself said she smashed out the windshield to help Tiger out of the car. This is possible since the front end of his car got mangled and he might not have been able to open the doors.

Another monkey wrench however: police said alcohol was NOT a factor.. and for some reason woods was leaving the house in a hurry at 2:25 am. Rumors have it that Tiger got addicted to the narcotic pain killer Oxycontin from his recent knee surgery, and that explains the “nodding in and out of consciousness” without alcohol involved when the police found him.

To further back things up, Tiger Woods ex girlfreind Joanna Jagoda is now defending Tiger Woods hottie wife Elin Nordegrin’s integrity, saying that she would never do such a thing.

2009 Australian Masters: Tiger Woods took the lead again

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

Tiger Woods has proved himself as the World’s No. 1 again In the November 13, when he opened with two birdies, saved his round with two pars and wound up with a 4-under 68. He completed his world domination by taking out the Australian Masters and said he planned to return next summer – but a clause will again prevent Sydney from seeing the world’s biggest sports star.

Despite Sydney hosting the premier event on the calendar – the Australian Open – there is a contract stipulating the world No.1 can only play one event Down Under.

After holding off Australia’s Greg Chalmers to win by two shots at Kingston Health, Woods sad he enjoyed his visit so much he would love to return to Melbourne in 2010.

It is thought that IMG, which runs the Masters tournament and also manages Woods, had clauses inserted in the contract for Woods to play in only one tournament in Australia. Any return to the Australian Masters at Victoria Golf Club next year would almost certainly be the same and rule out a Sydney tournament appearance.

Australian Open organisers have Greg Norman sewn up for the next three years but would no doubt be green with envy about the success of Woods playing at the Masters.

A record six-day attendance figure of 95,027 – with each day sold out – was a staggering sight at the Melbourne course.

Woods’ $3 million appearance fee was worth every cent and he completed the script by holding off the Australian challenge to claim the yellow jacket.

Asked if he had enjoyed his time in Australia, Woods said: “Are you kidding me? It’s been absolutely phenomenal.”

Victorian Premier John Brumby said 35,000 of the tickets were sold to interstate and overseas visitors, guaranteeing a huge boost  to the state economy that he said would “very,  very comfortably surpass” estimates of $19 million.

But Sydney’s chances of seeing Tiger and enjoying such a windfall are slim given Woods’ decision to return will no doubt be tied to his deep affection for the sandbelt courses of southeast Melbourne.

Golf Australia boss Stephen Pitt said he was focused on running a good Australian Open at NSW Golf Club at La Perouse from December 3-6 and could not speculate if the tournament would make a play for Woods next year.

“As you saw, he’s one of the all-time great players and any tournament would love him but it is really not a focus of ours at the moment,” Pitt said.

 

A Tiger fan shows his support whilst watching Tiger Woods of the USA on the 6th hole during the final round of the 2009 Australian Masters at Kingston Heath Golf Club on November 15, 2009 in Melbourne, Australia.

 

 

Common mistake young players make – if they hit the ball hard they think it will go far.

Tiger Woods And His Wife

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

For keeping intact family Elin Nordegren wants to save marriageï¼?howeverï¼?Tiger woods wants to return to golf world .

While Elin Nordegren is desperate for their two kids to have a dad, Woods “wants to go back to being a golf star with major endorsements.”

“He wants his clients, who have kids of their own, to think he is a good family man.”

Woods, the insider said, had hoped that his wife’s furor over his serial philandering “would die down so they could discuss the situation and behave rationally.”

Instead, Woods has landed in a Mississippi sex-addiction clinic, and this week could make or break the marriage.

“This is the rough part where the patient has to admit to his wife that he cheated,” a former patient told.

Woods checked himself into the clinic earlier this month under orders from his management team and his wife.

“He didn’t want to go to rehab,” a source reported.

Since then, Woods has discovered the biggest challenge is not the “celibacy contract,” which bans all sexual contact while in treatment. It’s not being allowed to play golf.

“He’s used to going in this robot mode of hitting a ball over and over as a way to escape,” a source told Us. “He can’t do that now.”

While Woods is in therapy, Nordegren has reportedly been hanging at the crib of another high-profile athlete who is also down in the dumps – Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre.

Do you like golf,do you want to have a romantic meeting, come here, there are golf clubs for sale ,you can buy a club then have a good day!

happy day!
