Kobe Bryant’s Golf Swing

You’ve seen Charles Barkley’s attempts at, uh, a golf swing.

Here’s Kobe Bryant.

Some advice for Kobe:

Don’t take on MJ any time soon.

That said…Kobe, we can get you there. If you see this, we’d be happy to set you up in a Pinehurst Golf Academy School.

Let us know. Seriously.

Growth…

No. 2 Greens Bermuda

Really, it only takes one picture to reveal how the Pinehurst No. 2 greens conversion process is going.

And it’s going well.

Just 2 weeks ago, it was this:

Green grass is already beginning to appear on the 18th green of No. 2. The course will reopen in Spetember.

The Drinker’s Guide to Massage Therapy

By Jennifer Malia Roche

First of all, let it be clear that drinking and spa-going do not ever, ever go together (you know who you are, don’t go there). But that being said, it’s been more than a little noticeable to us over the years that there is a mysterious correlation between a guy’s drink of choice and what type of spa-service he books.

So, which guy are you?

 

#1 The Craft Beer Drinker
This is the guy who, hands-down, is a deep-tissue/sports massage guy. He’s the work-hard-play-hard type who is a connoisseur (but never a snob) about his beer. He plays golf, he runs marathons, he knows how to correctly do a dead lift. For this fella, we suggest the Integrated Therapy Massage, our most technical, detailed, deep-tissue  massage – just the thing for combating those six hours of yard work you did last weekend.

The No. 2 Starter’s Box…and what it means

“Of all the golf centers in the world, there is perhaps only one that comes close to sharing the ideas and aspirations of St. Andrews – ‘Pinehurst.’”

Links Trust, 1998

Ahead of the 2014 back-to-back U.S. Opens, Pinehurst further solidified its relationship with the Old Course at St. Andrews with the dedication of the No. 2 Starter’s Box, built to resemble the longtime starter’s box that once stood at the first tee on Old Course.

But while it’s one thing for Pinehurst to say it enjoys ties to St. Andrews, it’s another for St. Andrews to reaffirm that relationship. And upon seeing the new No. 2 starter’s box before a round at the U.S. Open, that’s exactly what St. Andrews Links Trust Chief Executive Euan Loudon did in the video above.

And for us, that feels pretty special.
