ATV-riding vandals wrecked a golf course; county offers reward for information leading to arrest

Published

on

Vandals on a pair of ATVs began tearing up Putnam County Golf Course December 30, damaging both fairways and greens. Per a lowhud.com report, the clowns have returned to the New York course at least three times this month.

As you may have guessed from its name, Putnam County Golf Course is a municipal track, so taxpayers are stuck with the bill for course repairs.

Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell told lohud.com, “The Putnam County Golf Course has been a premier destination in the Hudson Valley with its lush greens at public prices. We cannot allow individuals to misuse the golf course at the expense of the taxpayers.”

As such, the county is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of these idiots.

Anyone with information can call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 845-225-4300 and the Carmel police at 845-628-1300.

Hudson Valley GolfWRX members, let’s bring these ATV-riding a-holes to justice.

    Man I grew up riding dirtbikes, quads and even snowmobiling. While I have dreamed about ripping through certain courses I also worked grounds hrowing up. User above is right, these punks have zero clue and think they the course probably fixes itself. But when these punks get caught they will soon figure out very fast how extremly difficult maintaining a course is. I hope we get to ear all about it too!

    Last year it was an idiot ATV rider tearing up Hudson Hills GC in Northern Westchester (just south of Putnam).

    Best punishment for these guys would be to make them take up golf… and play that course.

      naaa…how about work at the course 14 hours a day for a year (straight)…like some supers…..oh and take away their ATV’s (sell them and give the money to the course to repair)….and then…..waterboard them…..and then……

    Unfortunately these people are naive to how much pride and hard work is put into these courses.

      Obviously, they didn’t read the signs that said “Cart Path Only for ATV’s”

    Where is Putnam County and why is this stealing space as a headline?

      Stop complaining you cry baby. Just because you don’t care about it doesn’t mean others don’t either. Why comment if you don’t care about it?

      This is someones property (the county in this case).Maybe we should jump on some ATVs and destroy your property. How would you feel about that? I doubt you would like it. And if you dont/wouldnt care, you are beyond hope.

Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?

Published

on

According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan VI

Air Jordan VIII

Air Jordan II (low)

Air Jordan XXX

Looks like Tiger is exploring some innovative solutions to his putting woes…

Published

on

Tiger Woods was 39th in strokes gained: putting in 2018. Historically an excellent putter, Woods was hot-and-cold with the flatstick, even benching his soulmate Scotty Cameron Newport 2.

It looks like Woods may have an ace in the hole for the upcoming season, however, with respect to his green reading and putt sinking. Check out this video posted to his Instagram from the Tiger Woods Invitational on the Monterey Peninsula earlier this week.

Good thing the USGA is restricting the use of green-reading devices and technologies, because this kid looks close to cracking the eternal mystery of the perfect marriage of line and speed for every putt.

Cool stuff, though, isn’t it? It’s also cool to see Tiger so genuinely excited about his “mentee.”

We all know the story of how, after September 11, Woods re-evaluated his charitable endeavors and began to conceive of the Tiger Woods Learning Center. He’s spoken passionately about the students who have made their way through the various programs in the past, and there’s no doubt he cares deeply about the TGR Foundation’s efforts, but seeing a thin slice of that reality is awesome.
