Global Golf Post Names Amateurs of the Year, All-Amateur Teams


Nov. 28, 2016, Winter Park, Fla.  – Global Golf Post, the world’s leading digital golf news magazine, today announced its men’s and women’s amateurs of the year for 2016, as well as its fourth annual All-Amateur teams for men and women.


Three-time British Seniors Amateur champion Chip Lutz was selected as the male Amateur of the Year, while UCLA senior Bronte Law was named the female Amateur of the Year.


“Each fall, The Post labors to find the two players who epitomize the best of the amateur game: a man and woman whose legacy is an inspiration for others,” The Post’s Steve Eubanks wrote for the magazine’s Nov. 28 edition. “Lutz won his third British Seniors Amateur championship in August and followed it up with a low-amateur finish at the U.S. Senior Open.  He added, “Law became the only player other than Stacy Lewis to win five points in one Curtis Cup. She also charged from seven shots back to win the European Ladies’ Amateur and then made the cut in the Ricoh Women’s British Open. Law put an exclamation point on her summer by capturing the deciding point for England in the European Ladies’ Amateur Team Championships, the first victory for England in that event in 23 years.”


In addition, The Post unveiled its fourth All-Amateur selections for men and women in the amateur, mid-amateur, and senior amateur categories. A total of 201 players from 29 countries were recognized for on-course excellence in 2016.


“Amateur golf is a part of the DNA of The Post,” said founder and publisher Jim Nugent. “We take great pride and similar joy in supporting the amateur game, globally.”

Check out this YouTube link and you’ll see a couple types of STX putters available. Mine is 43.5″ long, and I am 6’0″ tall. I would not recommend a longer putter, as you need to be over your ball with your chin close to the top of the putter.

If you think the players that win in golf, at any level are spending the winter sitting on the couch watching re-runs of “I LOVE LUCY” think again. Golf in this day and age of advanced fitness, requires you to push yourself to your physical limits, to achieve maximum and optimal range of motion, flexibility and especially speed. Not to mention the mental edge that comes with it.

Not to toot my own horn, but playing against the senior amateurs, I am significantly longer than most of my peers, which gives me a huge advantage on the longer or wet courses. Recently the USGA Senior Amateur was played at the 7,000 yard Old Warson course that had just been drenched with a couple inches of rain. Even though the USGA moved the tees way forward for the qualifying rounds, my length helped me qualify 4th, while being in contention the whole time for medalist. Against the guys I played with, it was common that I would have a short iron to a green, while they had long irons and rescue clubs. You cannot compete at this level if you lose your speed, so DON’T you don’t have to!!!

Some will say, we’ll thats just the way your built, or you have always been long, and my reply is NO NO NO, you can always maximize your length with proper training, especially working with a TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) trainer. If you choose not to, then you will see a fairly dramatic drop off in club head speed each year as you near 50 and then 60. So get OFF YOUR ASS this winter and seek out help. Get your body measured for a proper training regime, and don’t just go to the gym and do a few weights and a little cardio, that is a complete WASTE OF TIME!!!

Oh and yes, since this is my own personal golf blog, I do not sell advertisements here, so I just rant about what I am passionate about. And yes there will be a lot more here on fitness and side saddle putting. And more on the last two events of the year, the California Senior Amateur in November, and the World Golf Championship in Thailand in December.




For those of you paying attention, this is officially the IDW enrollment season for 2017 revenue. The company has in the past given us guidance in mid Jan as to the approximate numbers for the new year. So in about 75 days we all should know the approximate revenue guidance for 2017.


Typically the stock rallies in the last two months of the year, in anticipation of the new numbers, which we are seeing now. The attached research report estimates the 2017 revenue to be in the $14M range, while others believe it will be quite a bit higher, perhaps even closer to the 2018 number of $18M. Even with these conservative estimates, this Trickle Research reports targets the stock at $0.42 a share in 12-24 months. If you have not read this report, perhaps now is a good time to understand more about this dynamic, stable and growing business and industry.


I am not promote or hype this very small company and its very thinly traded stock, I am just suggesting that with a potential 250% gain in 12-24 months (stock going from $.16 to $.42), that perhaps now is the LAST chance to acquiring shares under $0.20. I am fairly certain that you won’t see a Fiscal 2017 revenue number below $14M, but more likely a number closer to $18M-$20M. And if that happens, then what would this stock be valued at? We have a classic case here of a company becoming deleveraged, with increasing cash flow and margins.


If you believe in this business, then share this opportunity with others you care about. The risk at this point is NOT to own any IDW. And even at $0.20 a share this is a very reasonable price point based on the company’s revenue, growth and earnings. Even if we are to take the 2018 earnings of $0.022 and take a 15 times earnings multiple, you’d have a double at $0.33 a share. With Hilary Clinton as our next President, I am not sure may stocks on the major exchanges will even be higher than they are today, just a hunch)


As far as future liquidity, who knows, my best guess would be someone would want to own this crown jewel piece of business as the Employee Benefit business is VERY sticky, and very reliable as an ongoing revenue stream.


My own personal disclosure, yes I own shares of IDW. No the company is not paying me to write this to you. I am passionate about IDW, their future, and making sure people I care about enjoy the ride!!


When I first started writing about buying shares in IDW it was at around $.0.05 a share, it’s still very attractive at this level using any metric of valuation. Once the new numbers are announced in Jan, I anticipate that IDW will trade in the mid to high .20’s.

See page 15 of the research report for the revenue projections!!

If you love golf, your are spending a fair amount of money on green fees, membership fees, travel, tournament expenses, etc

How am I able to play in over 25 tournaments a year and travel overseas and lay the best courses in the world. It simple, since I have been in the securities business for over 30 years, I make investments in early stage companies that have huge upside. Not all of these companies pan out, but the ones that do, do in a very big way.

I am not being paid by this company to promote their stock, but I do own over a million shares of this company, and I expect these share to reach $1.00 a share over the next 24 months. I have mentioned this company before, and now I have an independent research report to share with you.

If you chose to not own ID Watchdog, I certainly respect that, but I can tell you that with my experience in these capital markets that you have a 90% chance of a market correction, while IDW has a 90% chance of going higher. Its your choice.

Next posting I will provide you with more information on FaceOn putting

Thousand of golfer are looking for a better way to putt since the “anchor” ban has gone into effect. Many are considering FaceOn/Siddle Saddle putting as an option. Its a GREAT option, but NOT a quick fix. I started putting FaceOn in 1997, and have won over 100 amateur tournaments during this period, I was DONE with golf putting conventional, and it saved me from probably quitting the game. If you cannot putt, why dedicate your time and effort to something that always ends in frustration.

I will say that since 2012, I’ve struggled with the FaceOn putting only because there is a YIP at impact, yes even putting FaceOn I’ve had to make significant adjustments. Even this past weekend while competing in the 36 hole final of the Olympic Club Championship, I had to only two putt from 30 feet on the 18th hole to secure the championship. I putt FaceOn but with my eyes closed, and in this high pressure situation I was not able to roll the first putt the proper distance and watched it all end in a heartbreaking loss. I’m telling you about this  because its all part of the game, and the situation changes from day to day.

But I will say that from 1997-2012 my putting was my greatest weapon and that I rarely ever had an average day pf putting. Many many players tried this strange looking method after watching me putt, but failed because they were all looking for a quick fix. THIS IS NOT A QUICK FIX!! You need to dedicate many months to develop the feel in the long putts and find the right FaceOn putter. Now there is a VERY good choice with the new Bobby Schaeffer putter, that will probably see the first PGA tour win secured by Bryson DeChambeau using this putter. So now we have better FaceOn instruction and a few decent options to consider with the many FaceOn putters available. In the future I plan to write about all of the FaceOn putters I have run across that are available, so STAY TUNED.
