Album Review

Mechanization  Our Friends at Mechanization had a new album release and here is my review of their latest offering. Mortem In Aeternum begins with what we've come to expect, a driving war note in the form of "Fire, not Faith". This tract quickly became one of my...

Dear Golf, We Need to Have a Long Talk…

Dear Golf, We need to have a long talk. You're a great game and I love you dearly but it seems that we've grown apart. The game that I love isn't an exclusive society and it isn't only for those who have wealth, fame or a powerful position. The game that I love also...

Swinging in the Dark

As most of you know, I'm a true night owl. As such, I've also become pretty comfortable navigating my home in the dark. Typically, my last thought before crawling in the bed is the golf swing. A few ghost swings in the dark always seem to calm my mind and give me at...

What’s My Motivation?

I was once perhaps the most competitive person on earth. There were nights where I'd spend hours in a dimly lit church gym battling a kid 10 years younger than me in horse, 21 or a 3 point contest. For the record, I pretty much always came out on top of those...

Meachanization Returns / Album Review

It's no secret that Moby is a huge metal fan and unlike some who call themselves fans, I've got a metal pedigree. If you ever doubt, the next time we talk, just ask me for my Iron Maiden story. Being in a few bands and dealing with musicians and recording labels in my...

The Path

I'm an eternal optimist. Sometimes it's also a curse because I'm always trying to find a path to victory. The drive to win and a competitive nature can produce grand victories but it can also cause a person to stay committed to a cause far past what is reasonable....

Lost in Translation

As a golfer, it's probably no surprise that I am a fan of Bill Murray. Whether it's Caddyshack, Ghost Busters or Zombieland, it's a pretty easy call. What might come as a bit of a confession is my favorite Bill Murray film, Lost in Translation. If you haven't watched...

Win One for the Gripper

  At the risk of showing my age, I want to share something that played a role in shaping who I am today. In the late 70's, I was on the verge of becoming a teenager. My folks had gone through some tough times. Dad lost his job and Mom barely made enough to put Spam on...

Skin in The Game

I've been blessed to be a part of the sport of Long Drive for several years. I started as most do with a love of golf but as my love grew, the game seemed to be aloof and distant. PGA level golf is a pipe dream for most unless your lucky enough to be born into a...

What’s Your Favorite Position?

Yup, I think I got you here with that headline. Lots of positions could be discussed but for the sake of this post, let's cover 2 points. Let's go ahead and get to the image that inspired this post as well. While flipping through some web images about impact position,...

30 Minutes

  Time is constant and relative, it stops for no man or woman and holds different values for the young and the old. As a young man, I was pretty much willing to try anything once. The cockiness of my youth also lead me to believe that I could stick to anything for 30...

2015 MAKO Tour Driver

You asked for it, you've got it. The 2015 Tour Model MAKO driver. We took our long drive technology and inserted it into a street (course) legal beast. You will have 2 options starting out.... 1- The standard MAKO Tour model. This club will have an upgraded House of...

Welcome to the 2014 Turkey Shootout!

Shark Attack Golf will host the 2014 Turkey Shootout. This is a year ending event  to the Long Drive Season for us. In a world where people and companies are consumed with trying to stack dollars, we want these events to always be about the players. We want to welcome...

Can’t Handle Success

Everyone dreams of making it big or of being successful and having wealth and fame. What happens when you're confronted with the chance to make it? Most golfers aspire to break par. As a beginning golfer, I took part in several golf matches that were way over my head...

Parade of the Dead

In full disclosure, I found myself in the midst of rough day of Epic proportions today. In an effort to relieve some stress, I stopped by a golf course and attempted to slam a quick 9. As I approached the first tee, there were 2 dudes standing at the tips. The first...

Ih4sn0ski11z

I'm a gamer from way back. Not talking about Nintendo but I'm talking about Atari 2600 and before that, the video arcade versions. Growing up, I couldn't get enough of the gaming thrill. The arcade games were 25 cents to play and the over under for each trip was $5. I...

The Beat Down

"The beatings will continue until morale improves". It's largely unknown where this saying originated but some believe it's from a Japanese Navy Commander and wasn't meant literally but in a facetious manner. No matter where it comes from, it brings to mind a popular...

Death by Distraction

In this world, there are a million ways to die and many ways to succeed. Recently, a quote from my childhood entered my mind and although I'd like to shake it out, it seems to stay with me. "What you feed will grow, what you starve will die, you never kill something...

If and When

Born to dream and raised with the ability to take chances is a luxury afforded to few. Some people have an ability to dance in the spotlight while others are more comfortable working behind the scenes but we all have dreams and desires. "Cowards die many times before...

Best Shot

  Growing up, we are taught to give our best effort and it will be enough. I remember my parents asking if I had given my best effort in school because that was all they expected of me. I agree that in most cases, your best effort or best shot should be good enough...

Game of Long

As we embark upon another season of Long Drive, It feels a lot like the the beginning of football season. Everyone is full of hope and anticipation about what the future holds and how they will fare. Football has training camp, baseball has spring training while...

If you Wait…

  I've never been accused of being the most patient person in the world. There's even a saying of how "good things come to those who wait". Try as I may, I could never quite live up to the waiting game and in fact, I've come to believe that waiting is more of an...

Super Sunday Stats

  As we approach another Super Bowl Sunday, I find myself watching a replay of the Saturday PGA golf telecast on the Golf Channel. As in life, there are many people who base their opinions and realities upon what they hear instead of actual facts. Hearing things that...
