    as long as I'm strolling down 'Memory Lane' ..

    or at least "Memory Fairway' ..

    here's a film of how Spalding used to make sporting equipment including Golf Clubs ..
    some of which might have been in the bags of some of those pros ..

    I'll see what I can find from Wilson, MacGregor and other makers... might be kind of fascinating

      Here's a Channel that seems like a lot of fun..

      he could probably use and appreciate some additional views and subscribers..

      and his content seems terrific..

      I remember these irons and suspect a few other WIG friends might have memories of them as well..

        Hi guys,
        With all due respect to anyone, there's an old saying that "...BEAUTY is in the EYE of the BEHOLDER...???)

        I don't think that it serves too many of us to determine what OTHERS of us consider "beautiful"????

        For the record, I was the proud owner of TWO sets of those Hogan Apex Edge irons, and played the BEST golf of my career with them....

        BOTH sets were STOLEN!

        (perhaps there is evidence therein?)

          the fact that you had sets stolen suggests that there was also appreciation for the Hogan Irons .. sorry that you lost them like that, maybe one day, they or something as nice will find their way back to you .. I believe that the 'Golden Age' of Golf Equipment or (GAGE) as it will come to be known, is right now. We can access the 'classics' and the new things are so often well designed and well made.

        Hi WIG Friends..

        if you missed it yesterday - here's probably one of the single greatest tips to any Caddie ever..



        Congratulations to Kevin Na on the great win at Colonial..

        and great respect to his Caddie - who stayed with him through the hard times and now the good times..

        cheers

          Hi WIG Friends..

          this is an interesting 5 minutes..

          how Jack did it ...

          'target picture creation'




          your method may vary ..

          but the key is to turn your intention into the sort of 'tangible and actionable pictures' that your brain can then be congruent with ...

          golf shot..

          hope this helps you realize some of yours..

          cheers

            This might be worth a few moments of your precious time..

            a few moments from Samuel L.. on why Golf is 'the perfect game'



            can't help but agree - nobody puts things quite like Mr. Jackson.

            cheers

              Hi WIG Friends..

              check in on this video at about the 2 minute mark..



              goes to the whole 'range game vs. course game' experience...

              what does having a target do ?

              to make strides - it becomes all about the shot .. not about the swing..

              which we all kind of knew ..

              but to see it walked through ..

              maybe it captures your imagination a little .. ??

              gives you that .. 'hey, I can do that' kind of moment

              cheers for now

                Hi WIG Friends..

                I think that anyone who has found Crackpot National can already tell these intrepid and amazing scientific minds what is in the Event Horizon..

                but looks like the world may soon know for sure..

                https://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2018/12/11/2019s-science-breakthrough-of-the-year-will-show-us-a-black-holes-event-horizon/

                if they happen to find the Universe's most amazing Golf Course in the process..

                it might be that our secret will finally be out..

                but ..

                if our cloaking technology holds up . thanks to Pigaman's Technology Team .. we'll play on in peace with our NBF (nothing But Fairway) Golf Balls enjoying the sights and sounds of our little course.

                cheers for now

                  not sure what you did on the golf course ..

                  but

                  here's something that I've never seen..

                    Hi WIG Friends

                    we've talked about the mystical aspects of the game from time to time ..

                    here's an update about Michael Murphy, who can probably be considered the 'spiritual godfather' of this line of connection to the Great Game.. He's going strong

                    https://www.golf.com/news/features/2019/10/23/golf-in-the-kingdom-magical-power-michael-murphy/





                    for those who want to hear it in his own words - and maybe see the movie..

                      and for those who still seeking to play the famed Crackpot National ..

                      we might be a little closer to home than what you ever imagined..

                      I'm not saying that someone might have figured out where we are ..

                      but some appear to be looking in the right place..

                        Hi WIG Friends..

                        a few disconnected bits of informational ephemera .. perhaps fascinating to only me, or other like-minded Crackpot Theorists ..

                        if you have a somewhat foggy memory of an occasional post of mine on the nature of quantum reality .. here's a recent post on a biomolecule behaving in a smilar way..

                        https://www.technologyreview.com/s/614688/a-natural-biomolecule-has-been-measured-acting-in-a-quantum-wave-for-the-first-time/?utm_medium=tr_social&utm_campaign=site_visito r.unpaid.engagement&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox =1573673766

                        is it proof of quantum phenomena acting within nature .. what is being researched as 'quantum biology'? I don't know - but it is interesting that the observer phenomena is so similar..

                        is it maybe a sign that our minds and presence(s) generate the quantum phenomena that we observe?

                        as to how we may have all got here.. after about 14 Billion years.. maybe it is written in the stars..

                        here's how https://www.wired.com/story/cosmic-triangles-open-a-window-to-the-origin-of-time/?mbid=social_twitter&utm_brand=wired&utm_c ampaign=wired&utm_medium=social&utm_social-type=owned&utm_source=twitter

                        all celestial roads lead back to ??

                        and finally .. before they get very big .. are they all around us .. and just very small??

                        https://www.technologyreview.com/f/6...box=1573228894

                        try not to grow your own.. but then again .. it might lead to building your own event horizon and Crackpot National..

                        these things can be more rewarding than what you might first imagine..

                        cheers for now!

                          Hi guys.....hey kid!

                          I saw that article about the "bio-molecule"....
                          Seems like "quantum-stuff" may work at sizes ABOVE the "sub-atomic-particle" level?
                          How "big" can we get?

                          I also saw this in my travels:

                          https://phys.org/news/2019-11-quantu...ty-doesnt.html

                          some of this stuff is beginning to come together?

                            at the risk of taking this to a very strange place .. I could not pass this one up..

                            it's an old joke - and when tried on the actual subject ..gets lost in translation..



                            but even one with total consciousness can enjoy some pizza at about 5:00



                            the universe is at play at least some of the time - it's whether we choose to play along that might make all the difference..

                            cheers for now
