Every year (well, for the past three years), golf bloggers from all over the globe have come together during the PGA Merchandise show week for an event of epic proportions… yes my friends it’s time again for the
2011 BATTLE OF THE GOLF BLOGS!!!!!!!!
It’s a contest of skill, might, tenacity, courage and perseverance!
The first Battle of the Golf Blogs took place in 2009 between Tony Korologos from HookedOnGolfBlog.com and yours truly, Dave Lair, the genius behind OrlandoGolfBlogger.com. The field of battle was Disney’s Lake Buena Vista and it was completely one-sided as Tony K poisoned my coffee thus robbing me of what little golf skill I had. We dueled using Nassau rules and by the end, yours truly lost it all, front, back and overall. Tony walked away with his pound of OGB flesh..
2010 Battle of the Golf Blogs took place at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club and this year we added a third combatant, John Duval, the Canadian bear hailing from intothegrain.com. The battle was net match play. The conditions were frigid and the competition was fierce, but, fortunately for me, this was the year of the OGB and I got my pound of flesh from both..
This year, the event is taking place on January 29th. The field has grown quite a bit and although the total number is still up in the air, we’ve got the following participants confirmed.
Dave Lair – OGB
Tony K – HOG
John Duval – ITG
Rob Hayashida – Sandbox8
This is an especially exciting year for me, because it’s a tie breaking grudge match year between HOG and OGB, and to give you a sneak peek, OGB will not lose.. We’re still finalizing the place of combat as well as the rules, but it’s going to be an amazing event!
So, who you gonna put your money on??
