on taking a day off.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

A big thanks to Doug and his girlfriend for inviting me and Amy to Lake Carroll this past weekend. Even though it was extremely hot, we had a blast. I got up at 5am on Saturday to get ready for my 6am tee time…and by 7am the sweat was dripping down my face. (When is someone going to create the air conditioned suit?) I could not drive, use my long irons, chip, or putt, but still…it was enjoyable. After golf we got ready to spend a nice relaxing few hours on the lake in which Doug, Kelly, and I participated… Read More »

short game practice.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

Every day for the last week I have been going outside after work with Triscuit to practice my short game. Triscuit runs laps, and I get my sand wedge and some wiffle golf balls out and aim for a specific target (the sandbox). I am hoping to focus on my short game and course management this year with golf. I believe that by working on both of these important parts of the game that I will begin seeing my scores drop. As for course management, I have to use the George Costanza way of thinking…doing the exact oposite of what… Read More »

multi-purpose golf push cart!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

There are some days when you think you have seen it all…and today was one of them. By working in a big city I am exposed to a lot of weird stuff all the time. This morning, I saw something I never expected…a homeless man with all his belongings on a golf push cart. The wheels first caught my attention but it was almost like the standard desert/mirage thought. I know I am really itching to golf, but so much that my mind is playing tricks on me? For a few moments, I could not quite grasp the concept of… Read More »

new ping irons out: G5s.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, I enjoyed having the latest and greatest Ping irons for two years, but my (G2s) have been passed by with the introduction of the G5s. This is just another reminder to me that I am not playing/living enough golf. Not only did I play under 20 rounds last spring/summer/fall, but I only found out about the new G5 irons by flipping through the channels and I saw one of the pros on tour with a G5 hat. Very sad. This year..with Doug and his brand new irons and putter we are going to play more golf than we ever… Read More »

the ultimate golf bag.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well…it is that time of year when most people’s golf season is winding down. (This was a busy summer for me and my golf game never really wound up). A friend of mine emailed me tonight and asked what golf bag I would recommend. The lucky bastard got a thank you gift from his boss, and got to choose any set of new golf clubs he wanted. He ended up choosing the CG1s. So thanks to my friend Doug I forwarded my other friend a link to what I think is the ultimate golf bag on the market now: the… Read More »

new 3 wood!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I went to Golfsmith right after work (I had already been to the much preferable Golf Galaxy a few days ago) and decided to try three 3 woods in the practice area so I could make my decision and then spend the rest of the week at the driving range (after work). I, of course, first picked up the Ping G2 3 wood for $269.99. Then I found a used Cleveland Launcher for $124.95, and a Titleist 975F for $34.95. Price differences aside, I wanted the Ping G2 to be the club I was going to buy before I actually… Read More »

and it's in!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 1 Comment

Well, this weekend was full of golf…54 holes. On hole 46, I threw my first club ever (3 wood)…and I made sure it was a good throw…into the lake. I had used this 3 wood since the early 90s and my father had used it before then…so it was not like it was anything great. I had been looking to replace it for the last two to three years, and just had to get rid of it…right then. With golf you need to focus on your most important shot, the current one, so I finished the hole, and went on… Read More »

western open.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, I had tickets to the Western Open today. I have to say, it was pretty darn cool to see some of my favorite players in action. To see them hit great shots and then to turn around and have difficuly in the sand…well it was priceless. It made me feel much better about my game. I could not get over was how flowing and calm their swings were, and how shots on the green were hit so delicately. The pros are much more graceful than I am (I know it is hard to believe). On another note, I have… Read More »
