My Swing

Ok, so better to go from steep to shallow than shallow to steep, even if the position in the backswing isn't that bad. Yes because then you can open up as the shaft lays down.

Mass. man, 27, dies in golf cart accident

Where I marshal at is a hilly course and I'm constantly telling people to please not drive on the hills and there are warnings all over the place, sometimes people just can't be protected from themselves. Some poor fellow died on the course I caddied at over 20 years ago.

S.O.S.

As a member of the class of 1974 I have seen the consistent ability of the Hokie football team to play like champions one week against a rated team and against unrated team, the next week it would have been a better score if they had not shown up at all!!! Oh wait a minute... they did not show up at all against ECU!!! There is no excuse for this, the coaching staff should have them better prepared, and this has occurred over and over again! It is time for Beamer and the coaching staff to retire, and and reduce the team to the current freshman class in hopes of removing the contamination! I do not say this easily, I have supported the Hokies since I became one and been a Beamer fan since he started.
