Still Bragging.......

Well I have to admit this is fun. Uploading Video's shot from my PDA while the Little Man and I are out at the Driving Range @ Harmony this weekend.

I have him practicing his timing as you can see in this. He get's a little hurried like his Daddy and I have him holding it at the top of his swing for a split second to slow him down. But what follows is his Pure Swing at hitting the target squarely, which is what we strive to always do in this game that Mark Twain once said "was a good walk spoiled".

He has a Big Tournament coming up at the End of August at Celebration. If he does as well as I think he will for his age group, he will go on the State Finals for a chance to be on the Golf Channel.

Wish him luck my Fellow Floridians.

Surfing Dolphins.....Surfs Up.

Many visitors to Australia have two particular things on their 'to do' list – go surfing and swim with dolphins.
It seems the dolphins like to do exactly the same.
As this astonishing picture shows, this group of at least 20 of the creatures couldn't resist catching a giant wave when it came along.
The friendly animals often come close to the shore at this spot some 300 miles north of Perth in Western Australia and rub their noses against swimmers and surfers in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

How I raise a Tiger!!!

Been wanting to do this for awhile and I got a wild hair this am and hopefully
I can make it happen.

I am an avid golfer. Have been since I was knee high to a grass hopper playing
on the free course that the patients at the Florida State Hospital in
Chattahoochee kept up when my Dad worked there. I remember back in the 70's playing all day with Friends and my Brother and I thought it was the center of the Universe.

Well that love for the game has translated down to my Son, (Ryan) Scott Jr. He is a natural at Golf. He is both Left and Right handed like his Daddy. When I was younger Coaches told me to switch over to Right Handed cause it would make me play better with my Strong Grip. I choose not to do this with Tiger since Phi Mickelson is the same and does just fine.

Attached is a vid I shot of Ryan out at the Harmony Golf Course near St. Cloud that we go too alot to play. I will also add another Vid of Ryan's Swing from 2 years ago and one can see the difference in his swing. I swear this kid can play golf from Sun Up to Sun Down.

I am not an avid fisherman and I gave up Hunting some time ago cause I love wildlife too much just to go out and kill it for the sake of killing it. This is something that Tiger and I do just for us and I have to say I get teary eyed everytime I see him swing a Club. I promise you will see this young man on the Tour one day and somewhere in the crowd will be ole Florida Native cheering him on.

Let me know folks if the video is okay, I followed some directions from Beta Blogger Help about putting these on You Tube and embedding them in the blog. Hope it works.

Yours in the Bond.
