Today’s Golfer – Find all the latest golf news, gear news and tour news and events. The best golfing news and golf events, all here on one site.

Of course, when you’re starting out in the ezine game yourself, you’ve got to have a couple of inspirational magazines to look up to.

Today’s Golfer, hosting this competition, Golf Magic and Great Golf Magazine are three online golf magazines that I’ll not only look into, but likewise look up to on the start of this fantastic journey.

The competition to win the chance to take on Joe Miller, the 2010 long drive champion on the famous 10th at The Belfry‘s world-famous Brabazon golf course, is simplicity in itself.  Well, if you’ve got a Twitter account.

You can find Today’s Golfer on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheTodaysGolfer (funnily enough); there, you’ll see they’re tweeting this competition into the public stream, visible to anyone following them.

All you have to do is re-tweet their tweet and add the hash-tag: #tglongdrive onto their original tweet (blimey – all this tweeting you’d think we were in an aviary – where’s Sylvester when you need him?) and that’s it – you’re in with the chance, along with three others, to take on both Miller & the mighty Brabazon 10th all in one fell swoop!

I’m going to pop this little article straight into this week’s edition of UK Golf, so if you miss this bookmark, simply subscribe to the RSS there and you’ll never miss an article again!

That’s it – TTFN,

This was waiting for me in my feed,  It’s a list of golf products, everything from golf head covers in a fetching blue/white/navy combination to the clubs themselves, from a parchment of the original Scottish rules of golf in a parchment to the latest in polo shirts and other apparel.

In my current state of health, there’s very little of it used to me.  I can’t even swing my pants, let alone my hips.  And I don’t think the stripey golfing trousers are quite me – they’d probably go with the golf club head covers, though!.

And the psychedelic purple beach shorts wouldn’t even be allowed at The Belfry, methinks.  But I guess there’s a market somewhere for them.  Other than the beach, I mean.

This is a third-party offer and, to me, it looks as if they’re all bits and pieces you can pick up on Amazon.co.uk – hang on, let’s check that…(hovers back over offer page)…nope, I stand corrected.

The first product that appears in the search, the book “On Golf”, has come up for sale at a place called ‘in-the-hole’ (sounds like I game I used to play in my youth – tut, Tiddlywinks, I was thinking of, what were you, smutty?), so they’re not amazon products.

To be fair, the book looks like the 2005 hardback edition – no, I’m not an aficionado on books, it’s just that I was wondering why this listing is offering it at $22.95.  The hardback on amazon.co.uk’s only a tenner, with the Kindle version going for £7.16 – you can get that here: http://amzn.to/NY4uku and download the free app on Amazon to convert it to your PC or Android or iOS device.

Anyway – this wasn’t a go-compare type article – I just thought I’d offer you what as awaiting me in my syndicated feeds awaiting curation when I logged in to my account this afternoon.

Okay – that’s me for tonight – I’ll see you tomorrow with an update on the WGC Bridgestone and see if Jim Furyk can hold onto his lead past the halfway point.

TTFN, Thet Watson.

I’m supporting Seve Day – are you?

Seve Day

No Golf site worth it’s due will fail to promote this event – not because it feels it has to, just because it is in honour of arguably the greatest and bravest gentleman – not to mention naturally talented golfer – Europe, nay, the world, has ever seen: Seve Ballesteros.

Seve Day is a golf competition raising money for the Seve Ballesteros Foundation & Cancer Research UK. It will see the top 72 golfers’ Stableford scores from any registered golf course in Europe across the month of August battling out the final, the eventual winner getting a trip to the 2013 US Masters as well as the prestige.

The Celebrity Final, which is being held on my doorstep at The Belfry, is scheduled for October, but don’t miss out – your scores have to be registered at any official European golf club this month to be in with a chance to tee off alongside the stars in Autumn.  And, no, I’m not posh enough to live in Sutton Coldfield, but just down the M5 a little in The Black Country.

There are £250 worth of freebies just for registering (£25 / €30), including free 18-hole rounds at The Belfry itself, London’s The Shire or golf courses at any Q  or MacDonalds Hotels chains.  It doesn’t stop there!

Three of the biggest names in online Golf are pitching in £25 vouchers – Your Golf Travel, Spabreaks.com and Direct Golf UK.  And there’s more…

…the Urban Golf Club is offering half an hour lessons at any one of its venues, just for your registration – worth the entry fee on its own!  Plus loads of other bits and pieces, if those incentives weren’t enough.

At time of print, just over 1,100 golfers have registered to date and raised more than twenty-seven and a half grand, to be split between the Seve foundation and Cancer Research UK.

Like me, even if you’re not good enough or fit enough (I qualify on both accounts) to play, show your support, anyway!  For research, for golf, but most of all for the memory of a man who was not only an ambassador for the sport, but for both fair play and Spain, to boot!

Thanks in advancw, TTFN, Thet Watson. xxx
