I went back and forth for a long time about this title, trying to decide whether or not to use it.  But I finally decided that due to a few of the “controversial topics” covered in this e-book, I might as well go all the way and make the title controversial as well.  Hopefully, once you look beyond the title and read the entire e-book, you’ll realize that I really do have nothing but respect for Jason Bohn.  But in all seriousness, he really did play lights out and had his way with the field, so the title is also appropriate for that reason as well.

In addition, despite a few touchy topics, this ended up being one of my favorite e-books.  I suppose it helped that I slept in a tent, dealt with the crappy weather, and almost got into a fight on Bourbon Street—all of this adds perspective and creativity with a piece of writing.  I hope you agree.

The highlights:

1.       Justin Rose recognized me

2.       A great story from a PGA Tour Rules Official about Brian Davis

3.       Long conversations with Carlos, Sergio Garcia’s manager

4.       The “Manly Litmus Test” that exists on the 13th hole

5.       Progress with networking

Although it's raining like hell outside right now, I figured I'd share some of the pictures I snapped on Wednesday when things were looking a little better outside.  Hope you enjoy.
 
 
I was fortunate enough to meet one of my readers on Wednesday during Masters week.  I was also fortunate that he brought a kick-ass Bloody Mary mix and a handle of Absolut Peppar so that we could hang out comfortably for two hours in the parking lot.  Ted, it kills me that you weren't able to get in that day.  But we'll just have to plan on next year.  And those Bloody Mary's really were awesome.

While Masters week was enjoyable for all, it was extra special for me because I finally had a week to recharge my batteries.  Without exaggeration, I was so tired after 11 straight weeks on the road that I literally thought to myself: If I’m somehow able to score Masters tickets, I might just try to sell them because I just want to sleep for a week.  It sounds blasphemous, I know, but that’s really how I felt.

But now that my batteries are recharged, I couldn’t wait for the Verizon Heritage.  I had caddied for my father in a pro-am here 4-5 years ago when he played with Mark Calcavecchia, and I couldn't wait to see the course again.

During the event, everywhere I turned I heard patrons say: “Happy Heritage!”

I think you’d be hard pressed to find another group of patrons—outside of the professional drinkers at the Phoenix Open—who are that enthused about a PGA Tour event coming through their town.  I mean sure the Masters is great, but do you hear patrons there say: “Awesome Augusta!”

Well, yeah, I suppose you do at times.

Anyway, here are some of the highlights:

1.       Crazy Da Vinci Code roads and variant hand signals from security officers

2.       An in-depth look at Harbour Town Golf Links

3.       Extended conversations with Candice Clark and arranging an interview with Tim

4.       Meeting Tom Weber, who was a part of the course renovations in 2000

5.       Running into Fluff and speaking with Jim Furyk after his win

It surprised me how much I enjoyed this event.  Aside from the long walk just to get onto the golf course, I loved everything about the Shell Houston Open. The course was in mint condition, the fans were probably the nicest I’ve come across so far, and the representatives in the media center seemed to go out of their way each day to make sure I had everything I needed.  And, to top it all off, I got so speak with AK’s swing coach on Saturday, prior to the victory.  I felt like I was able to celebrate right alongside Kim.

Here are the highlights:

1.       Questions for Kevin Stadler and Cameron Percy

2.       Comments to Martin Flores’ caddie

3.       Meeting Anthony Kim’s swing coach, Adam Schriber

4.       Media center security escorting out a photographer

5.       Talking to Vaughn Taylor’s caddie after the playoff

Hope you guys enjoy it.  You can purchase it here.
