Like you, I listen to sports radio all the time, every time I’m driving and sometimes when I’m home. The day after the Masters, I knew Jim Rome would exaggerate everything there is to exaggerate about the exaggeration of the other sports people’s writings about Jordan Spieth’s meltdown at the 12th hole at Augusta National….and so he did.
That guy (Rome) and all the other sports guys have gotten so good at talking about sports in a way that makes listeners think about everything there is to think about except sports, that I can’t wait until the next time I have to use the car to do an errand so I can listen in and learn all the latest bombastic exaggerative remarks.
The incredible exaggerations about the Spieth meltdown on 12 at Augusta were very ironic in that those sports guys went so far out of their way to point out another sports guy’s take on what happens next for Spieth that the reporting of the meltdown, with all its inflated views about how badly this would effect him, was nothing compared to the vividly popular sportscaster I was listening to on his take of the other sports guy’s take on Spieth.
I think it’s Rome who likes to use “really?” with a long pause before he says “really?” and a long pause afterwards to compound the effect he figures he’ll have on his audience. There’s also a gruff-voiced fellow who is much more vociferously mundane than Rome, but his voice is enough to grab the attention of anyone who happens to accidentally tune into that station while looking for Mozart or Beethoven.
Are you starting to get the idea of how to use adjectives, some appropriate and some totally inappropriate, to make your golf course website blog posts sound better? If not, scroll back up to my 2nd paragraph of this ridiculously uninformative post. (Notice I just said “ridiculously uninformative” so that you would understand how non-ridiculous and how informative this post really is since we live in an age of “opposites for effect”) to the part where I said “bombastic exaggerative” remarks. Notice how the word “bombastic” is used inappropriately here because there was nothing braggartly (that’s what bombastic means, I think) about Rome’s remarks. Also, the word “exaggerative” probably isn’t even a real word, but that doesn’t matter and in fact might be better than if you used real words.
So to summarize… for your horrendously shameless watered-down version of a golf post for your beautiful blue and green golf course website, just use a lot of adjectives…(and maybe even throw in a few neat adverbs too) and make sure that only some of it makes sense. That way your rapid-learning readers will come back for more and more of your pitiful posts which will be stuffed with clever keywords that the gargantuan Google won’t even realize it’s ranking your pages higher than your corny cocky competitor’s content which currently rank higher than your cool content!!! 🙂
Jordan Spieth spewed off a couple of bad shots at the 12th hole yesterday. SO WHAT??? It cost him the tournament….instead of finishing 1st, he finished 2nd…so what? What’s the big deal?
He said himself it was a tough 30 minutes (he also bogeyed 10 and 11), but he failed to mention that he’d done something amazing…he just got done birdieing 6, 7, 8, and 9. How come he didn’t mention that??? Too humble? I don’t think so. Jordan Spieth is quite the gentleman but he’s not exactly humble. The reason he didn’t mention all the great stuff he did yesterday was because he was too busy sulking about the “big” loss. He had to sulk. The world expected him to be sad as his fans groaned and sulked along with him.
Wake up people!!! Celebrate with me Spieth’s fantastic 3 year period of Masters finishes, 2nd in 2014, 1st last year, then 2nd again yesterday!!! Wow!! What a golfer!!…even Tiger has NEVER had 3 top 2 finishes in a row during any 3 year span in that tournament. We have to go all the way back to the Nicklaus/Palmer era to find anything comparable. (Both Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer have actually done better in some of those 3 year spans back in the 60’s, each of them winning in 2 of the 3 and coming in 2nd in the other.)
But here’s something to think about. Jordan Spieth is 22 years old, not even close to his possible peak years (late 20’s to mid 30’s for most touring pros). What will you guys be saying in 10 years after Spieth wins perhaps his 6th or 7th Masters in a row? If you are a reporter, interviewing him after he gets done with a feat like that, is the first thing that pops out of your mouth going to be…”yeah, sure Jordan, you’re putting on your 7th greenie in a row, but what about the 12th hole from 12 years ago, I’ll bet you’re still stewing about that one, eh?” I’ll give you a definitive answer right now. NO. You won’t even remember what happened.
And Jordan, you’ll still remember it, but it’s not going to haunt you for the rest of your life like everyone says it’s going to. So, chin up, take 1 or 2 days to sulk a little more (but not the rest of your life), grab your clubs and get out and play some more awesome golf!!
Face it, you’ve NEVER had a hole-in-one at any golf course anywhere. But at the Masters today, at one of the toughest golf courses in the world, 3 holes-in-one were made all at the same hole, all within an hour or so of each other. That’s because touring pros are better at golf than you are…and in a separate post, I already talked about the 9 holes-in-one that were made all in the same day at the par 3 contest, one of which was made by a guy old enough to be your grampa.
If you want a shot at your first ace you’ll have to play golf. If you want to play golf, you usually have to make a tee time. Don’t be like Jordan Spieth and blow it. Make your tee time now at thegolfcourses.net !!!!
Albany Golf Course was one of the earliest golf courses established in Western Australia (established in 1898 with nine holes and enlarged in the 1960s) and the first links style course. It has been favorably compared to the best of the traditional links courses in Scotland and is the oldest established course at the same location in the State. In March 2010, the course was placed on the State Register of Heritage Places which is managed by the Heritage Council of WA.
Albany Golf Course attracts top golfers from around the country and overseas as well as nurturing some home-grown champions. The course record is held by West Australian international golfer Graham Marsh. Craig Parry, has been often quoted as saying …
“Albany is my favourite Australian golf course. It’s a great course by the ocean, which plays hard and is never the same”.
