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…


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!


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.”

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.”

Rock Hard Rangé

[YouTube] <— 395,449 If you can guess what this purpose of creating this video was for just by watching it... then you obviously must have been present at the Charles Schulz Celebrity Golf Event.

“Why not own a box Range’ for yourself? This product and accompanying television commercial were specifically designed to raise money for The Charles Schulz Celebrity Golf event, a 501 C3 charitable organization that has already donated over $2,000,000 to The Boys & Girls Clubs and other children’s charities throughout Sonoma County California.”

Talk about a creative way to finally see a non profit raise some money. 501 C3s — More humor please.

Hit Golf Ball Farther

Here I present to you the reader (presumably a golfer) five completely simple steps on how to learn how to hit a golf ball harder, farther and longer:

  1. Take a tour through Two Time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski’s golf swing.
  2. Buy an Adams 9064LD Speedline and then…
  3. Learn how to hit a golf ball 400 yards… and finally,
  4. Give up bowling.
  5. Good luck.

Golf Digest – 60 Stories in 60 Days

Beginning April 1st, Max Adler, Associate Editor of Golf Digest is taking a 60 day golfing road trip in celebration of the magazines 60 years in publication.

What interests me about Max’s adventure is how he is going to pay it back to some of Golf Digest’s real fans and supporters over the years … and his #1 and #2 example stops both revolve around Long Drive (and luck).

Michael Crean aced the 517-yard, par-5 ninth at Green Valley Ranch Golf Club in 2002.

Long Drive champ Sean (The Beast) Fister poses the same challenge to any upstarts who think they can make it in pro long drive: Carry the Arkansas River from the lawn of the Clinton Presidential Library & Museum. (It’s 360 yards.)

Maybe I will try and document a couple of his 60 stops throughout the nation. They sound like good stories… why wouldn’t you want them on video?

2009 Media Elements

In 2009 I averaged just over 69 captured media elements a day which is directly on par with the last three years.

I shot 9,582 videos and 14,304 photos on the canon. 1,421 came from the iPhone which is no longer a daily pocket device for me.
