Funniest Golf Video Clip Ever – You Decide
This maybe the funniest golf video I have ever seen. It’s a candid camera style clip taken at a local driving range.
The look on the players’ faces when the local redneck shows up and starts shooting, at the golf balls in flight are priceless!
I hope it you enjoy it and share it with your friends.

Plaza Dreams Hotel Room Package
“Scott, are you paying attention to me?”
I awake from my trance and look up from the letter I had been working on to discover my beautiful bride had been talking to me for five minutes about a weekend trip we were planning with the kids.
Kids. That’s right. I have kids. Sometimes I forget. That is what happens when you have advanced level focus skills typical of high sports performers. Which leads me to my point and gift I have for the first person to respond to this letter at the upcoming West Michigan Golf Show.
A couple of years ago I was at a fundraiser for Health Intervention Services. There was an auction for a Plaza Dreams Hotel Room Package at the Amway Grand Plaza. I was deep in concentration. Deer in headlights look was in full effect. I thought it would be a really great gift for my lovely bride. The auction ended. I was the winner. All was good in my world.
Until I got home.
“When are we going to use that?” asked my beautiful bride.
“How about next weekend?” said I.
“What are we going to do with the kids?” said she.
“We have kids?” said I.
So much for that brilliant idea. So down to my office went the gift certificate. Into the pile of unending projects. Where it sat for two years until I cleaned my desk this winter. I asked my still lovely bride if she would like to use it and she informed me about the children. They are still in the house… and won’t be old enough to move out for 18 more years.
So I have decided to give it away to the first person who stops by to see me at the Watermark Country Club booth (#1219) at the West Michigan Golf Show and selects a customized coaching program. Your customized coaching program can be for the remaining 7 weeks of indoor season or for the upcoming outdoor season. I’ll be at the booth from 2:30pm to 4:00pm on Saturday Feb. 9th and 1:30pm to 3pm on Sunday Feb. 10th.
The Golf Show takes place at DeVos Place and the Watermark CC will be located at booth #1219.
Here are the details of the Plaza Dreams Hotel Room Package:
Amway Grand Plaza
For couples looking for an extraordinary way to get away from it all.
Your package includes:
- Overnight accommodations for two featuring a plush single king, or double queen beds, with pillow top mattress, down pillows, and cozy sheets for one spectacular evening.
- Evening turndown service.
- Access to the Plaza Fitness Center and all its amenities, including heated pool and hot tub.
- 24-hour concierge service.
*Available Friday and Saturday evenings only.
Make 2013 The Year of Process
“People in the habit of losing overvalue victories and undervalue the process required to win. They want the thrill of the breakthrough, not the toil that comes before it. People in the habit of winning are the opposite: They find value and satisfaction in the preparation process.” – John C. Maxwell
I came across this quote by John C. Maxwell last weekend and added it to my keynote presentation about Grinding. It is one I perform for corporate America but applies just as much to your golf game.
I’m not only talking about the process you use to hit a golf shot, but all the processes throughout the entire round of golf, including pre-round and post-round activities. Processes for your pre-round meal, your evening preparations prior to the tournament, the way you mark your golf ball, the number of tees you keep in your pocket, the number of balls you hit to warm up, the number of seconds in your pre-shot routine, the steps you take to evaluate your round, your post round work out (or 19th hole) and even down to the process of how you breath in the car on the way to the event. These are all important processes to be consistent with, respect and relentlessly and selfishly protect and guard from distractions and indefiniteness.
But your processes need not be static forever. They must be flexible to change when necessary. Edison became famous for inventing the light bulb, but what he was lesser known for were the 10,000 processes he used to NOT invent the light bulb. Adjusting and adapting all along the way until he found the process that finally worked.
Your challenge this week is to right down at least 30 processes that you would use pre-round, in-round and post-round. Ask yourself if you respect them, repeat them and have confidence in them. Consider possible adjustments that would make them better and move forward towards a record 2013!
