126 views

FYTB teamed up with the Masters and made inspirational gold for anyone who swings a golf club. I put Leslie June to bed with this last night and she woke up wanting to watch it again… and again and again. It’s Masters week :)

Props to you Tom Brady.

SCRIPT:

Where does greatness begin?

There is no specific place.

No exact location you can pinpoint on a map.

True greatness starts within.

Internally.

With a dream.

Dreams are not some fleeting thought or ambitious notion.

Dreams are alive living inside each of us.

Relentlessly pursued.

Followed.

Chased.

Fueled by passion.

And with enough support and self-dedication.

Dreams are confronted face to face.

Defining us in the most important moments of our lives.

Greatness isn’t found at a certain place.

True greatness is measured by where our dreams take us.

Somewhere others could never see.

Inside yourself, you knew what was possible all along.

We’ve installed a bad ass putting green with Tour Links UltraBase before systems … but the themed creativity behind this activation in New York for Fox Sports’ coverage of the 116th U.S. Open is pretty awesome. Cheers @katienolan for giving it your rough “fast and hard” best.

Michael Phelps – 159 Foot Putt


[YouTubeUlar] <— 6,556 Unbelievable. Michael Phelps TSOIGDH at the Scottish Pro-Am last week and sank this 50 yard putt. Estimated at 159 feet ... this just quite could be the longest putt ever recorded - for a 24 handicapper. Here is some other fun links and long putts. [Golf Digest]

HYDLE – TSOIGDH

In the history of HYDLE.com… this ridiculous “TSOIGDH” entry marks my 999th public blog post since May of 2009 – When I started this crazy world of blogging ideas, thoughts and Genius vs. Not Genius intermanents and social media successes or failures.

So for the sake of getting google credit for it…

“TSOIGDH” = TURNING SHIT ON IT’S GOD DAMN HEAD

Turning shit on it’s god damn head is going to be my 1 single inspiration for the next 999 blogpost entries. I can’t wait to open up my connection layer for all my loyal readers… so I can start finding out who you actually are.

Cheers to 999!

Miss You Breezy

20120419-131812.jpg

Do you get… What you got?

What an incredible celebration of the life of Frank Breezy Brzezicki today. For a 92 year old who would still shoot his age on the golf course… you were an inspiration in so many ways. Your service in the Air Force will never be forgotten. I’ve never witnessed a service where they honor a serviceman… and how inspiring it was.

Uncle Tom, Dennis, Corey and Brian… I absolutely love learning about this man in more ways than I selfishly never took the time to do on my own. I guess we were too busy golfing, drinking, or making crazy faces with that abnormally amazing smile when we were hanging out.

I will miss our playing days Breeze. Rest in peace.

I Love Awesomeness – Bubba Watson on Dave Letterman


[YouTubeUlar] <— 107,277 While paying my State Farm semi-annual home insurance policy today and describing the rules behind ILA's first golf event "The Gong" ... my agent Scott Bristol simply asked me if I caught Bubba Watson on David Letterman the other night. To which he stated “It was awesome.”

Since I Love Awesomeness I had to check it out… and Scott – you were right.

At 3:20 Dave Letterman – who knows absolutely nothing about golf… asks Bubba how he would describe his personal approach to golf?

Bubba simply states…

“Pppppft – Awesome”

David later asks…

“Having won, probably the most treasured major… does this take pressure off a golfer, or put pressure on a golfer? What does this do to Bubba golf? Will you continue to be awesome? – I guess is what I am trying to say.”

Golf Boys


[YouTubeUlar] <— 3,373,414 [The Making of Golf Boys – Video] <— 251,390 When I first saw this video last summer... I hesitated to post it. I didn't think golf was ready for something like this - even though it was beyond ready. Now that Bubba Watson cashed out on winning the masters - the viraladditity of this video and the Golf Boys is set to take off again. Oh Oh Oh - Single - Golf BoysOh Oh Oh – Single – Golf Boys

Congratulations Bubba – what a fun easter day watching you win.

“There’s always something out there… but the most important part is just trying to have fun.

You’re welcome.”

Red Bull — Rickie Fowler


[YouTubeUlar] <— 82,393 Randomly - given the new YouTube recommended & related video algorithms… I finally came across this video.

-or-

Maybe the phenomenal weather lately has given me the power to find golf on the internets again.

Generally… Red Bull videos are much better than these – but since it’s golf mixed with Red Bull’s uniqueness – Go for it.

Manuel De Los Santos


[YouTubeUlar] <— 241,195 Social Networking does work... how else would I have noticed that Boyd Easley watched this video, and then posted it for me to find.

“Manuel de los Santos is one of sport’s most inspirational figures. Growing up in the Dominican Republic, he played baseball from a young age and by 2003 was planning to turn professional. But a motorcycle accident changed his life forever when he lost his left leg above the knee.”

Excited for some golf season to be rolling around. It was 65 in Golden today, going to be the same tomorrow. Time to hit the range.

Who’s up for a few Golf Jokes?

A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack! “Help me dear,” she groans to her husband.

The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt. His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him.

“I’m dying here and you’re putting?”
“Don’t worry dear,” says the husband calmly, “they found a doctor on the second hole and he’s coming to help you.

“Well, how long will it take for him to get here?” she asks feebly.
“No time at all,” says her husband. “Everybody’s already agreed to let him play through.”

A gushy reporter told Phil Mickelson, “You are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What’s your secret?”

Mickelson replied, “The holes are numbered.”

—————————————————————————————-

Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody 5-iron standing over a lifeless man.

The detective asks, “Ma’am, is that your husband?”

“Yes” says the woman.

“Did you hit him with that golf club?”

“Yes, yes, I did.” The woman begins to sob, drops the club, and puts her hands on her face.

“How many times did you hit him?”

“I don’t know — five, six, maybe seven times…..just put me down for a five.”

—————————————————————————————-

A golfer teed up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a clump of trees. He found his ball and saw an opening between two trees he thought he could hit through.

Taking out his 3-wood, he took a mighty swing. The ball hit a tree, bounced back, hit him in the forehead and killed him.

As he approached the gates of Heaven, St. Peter asked, “Are you a good golfer?

The man replied: “Got here in two, didn’t I?

—————————————————————————————-

The bride was escorted down the aisle and when she reached the altar, the groom was standing there with his golf bag and clubs at his side.

She said: “What are your golf clubs doing here?”

He looked her right in the eye and said, “This isn’t going to take all day, is it?”

New Federal Golf Rules

Finally, RULES we can believe in!!
New Federal Golf Regulations

Since these new golf rules will be in effect next year, please share with fellow golfers.

President BHO has recently appointed a Golf Czar and major rule changes in the game of golf will become effective in January 2012.

This is only a preview as the complete rule book (2000 pages) is being rewritten as we speak.

Here are a few of the changes. Golfers with handicaps:
– below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35%.
– between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees.
– above 18 will get a $20 check each time they play.

The term “gimmie” will be changed to “entitlement” and will be used as follows:
– handicaps below 10, no entitlements.
– handicaps from 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts.
– handicaps above 18, if your ball is on green, no need to putt, just pick it up.

These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness and, most importantly, equality in scoring. In addition, a Player will be limited to a maximum of one birdie or six pars in any given 18-hole round.

Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par. Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player actually making the birdie or par, can that player begin to count his pars and birdies again.

The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes, but the term “net score” will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps of 18 and above.

This is intended to “re-distribute” the success of winning by making sure that in every competition, the above 18 handicap players will post only “net score” against every other player’s gross score.

These new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf.

Golf must be about fairness, remember it is a gentlemen’s game. It should have nothing to do with ability, hard work, practice, and determination.

This is the “Right thing to do.”
