MGN ON THE ROAD
John Bebow greeted many of his fans this past week and he embedded back into the Ypsilanti-Ann Arbor community. The shoulder he separated in a rollover accident in Iraq is still tender. As a welcome home gift, we gave him the new "Knife" golf club as a rehab tool. John was well tanned, slimmed down and just happy to be back alive.
Elmbrook GC- "The Haig" will be dropping in on "The Haig" golf tournament at Elmbrook GC. Walter Hagen* will be the banquet speaker at "The Haig" golf tournament in Traverse City on June 20. Walter is currently in LA doing some television work, but is looking forward to coming back to Michigan and the Traverse City, Interlochen, Long Lake and Cadillac areas where he has so many friends and memories. Those who would like a glimpse of "The Haig", go to http://michigangolfer.tv/2003shows/hagen1/index.html
Grand Traverse Resort
Mr. GTR PR, Mike DeAgostino, was in fine form when we dropped by his office. The Grand Traverse Resort and Spa has undergone a very smooth transition with the new ownership, the official transfer day was March 31. All the courses are now open and they are looking forward to what could very well be another chapter in their incredible history.
Park Place Hotel
Bill Knopp, Director of Sales for the hotel, is working with local vineyards to put together a "Chip and Sip" program for golfers. The idea being, you grab some room nights at the hotel and they will set you up with some golf and vineyard package.http://park-place-hotel.com
The Leelanau Club at Bahle Farms
We chatted with Matt Morrison, Head Golf Professional at the course, and he is looking forward to a great year. They do a lot of packaging with the Park Place Hotel.
The building that has taken place on The Crown Golf Course is staggering. It appears that they are building quite a community of golfers there.
MICHIGAN GOLFER TV-INDIANA GOLF HALL OF FAMEhttp://michigangolfer.tv - Sponsored by Bay Mills Resort and Casino

"GOLF'S GREATEST EIGHTEEN"-EDITED BY DAVID MACINTOSH WITH JOEY KANEY
David Mackintosh http://services.golfweb.com/library/mackintosh/mackintoshbio.html and Joey Kaney have brought together an interesting idea and some of golf's greatest writers, to produce a terrific book; "Golf's Greatest Eighteen" The premise for the book, was to create a computer enhanced mathematical model to compare the golfing greats of years past with the golfing greats of the modern era. To carry out this idea, they created a "New Money" in which to rank the players.
I thought they carried the idea off very well. Once you understand the formula, you can jump in and be entertained with the craftsmanship of its authors; John Garrity, Dave Hackenburg, Ben Wright, James Dodson, Al Barkow, John Hopkins, Dr. Stephen Lowe, Ron Green, Sidney Matthew, John Huggan, Dan Reardon, Mike Purkey, Phil Tresidder, Jaime Diaz, Kaye Kessler, Marino Parascenzo, Furman Bisher and Tom Auclair.
Who were "Golf's Greatest Eighteen"? I can tell you that T. C, Chen did not make it, but for those who did, buy the book.http://books.mcgraw-hill.com
SPEAKING OF BOOKS
Skip DeWall of Clock Tower Books indicated that there latest books, Caddywhack: A Kids-Eye View of Golf by Drew Murray and the Wit & Wisdom of Bobby Jones by Sidney L. Matthew have just about sold out. The Drew Murray book has been especially hot.http://clocktowerpress.com ***

WHAT PRAY TELL ARE THE AUSTRIANS UP TO?

Innsbruck, Austria -- April 23, 2003 -- The Austria based golf software company now offers on its website its latest professional golf analysis software also in the form of "Team-Packages". Those include its TEAM-Version and any number of its SINGLE-Version. This will help to improve the game of golf not only for individuals but also for teams and at lower costs. Details at http://www.nobogey.net/english/products/nob-team.htm.
Quote by the author of the NoBogey - Game and Swing-Check and member of the Austrian PGA, Reinhold Gugler: "It was hurting me to watch so many golfers wasting their time, money and talent on the golf courses by practicing the wrong things. And I'm happy to see now that more and more golfers realize the importance of game analysis."
The NoBogey - Game and Swing-Check was introduced in late 2002. It is available in three different versions, in English and in German. Its primary goal is to help golfers to locate their weak game parts. This will save precious time and enable a more efficient practice. Its comprehensive round analysis is targeted to golfers willing to achieve more in a shorter time period.

"Let's get after it."
Rose Montgomery's signature expression, after spitting on her gloves at the start of a round. On June 2, 1992, at the age of 96, Rose aced the 100-yard 7th hole at Canyon Country Club in Palm Springs for her tenth career hole in one.
