December 4-6, 1998-- Northcoast Golf show. Well the public got its first look at The Golden Swing Thing. Here's a day by day diary of my impressions of the show and the people I'm meeting there.
November 7, 1998--Folks, it hasn't been a good week. Today there was a death in the family. I don't want to lay bare the elements of my personal life, but as this most profound week draws to a close I think that today I should reveal the name of the product.
For several months now I have been touting something called "The Magic Swing Thing." I want to thank everyone who signed up for the product test and all of the people on the ever growing waiting list. Although the name isn't changing much, I believe that the final product name is the purest name I could come up with.
The product's official name is: The Golden Swing Thing
All previous references to the product have been changed to The Golden Swing Thing.
November 6, 1998--Ouch! The ladder I was climbing outside my house slipped on the wet driveway. I fell about fifteen feet and severly sprained my right ankle. :~0 The polished presentation I had planned for the Cleveland golf show may be in jeopordy. I will still be there, but I may be on crutches. As in life, so in golf. After pondering my predicament, this quote came to mind.
Now I know no one wants to look at my "not so golden bare feet," but I have documented the reality of my injury. Here's my normal left foot and ankle. Here's my injured right foot and ankle. And here's a picture of both feet side by side. I had planned to do a streaming video demonstration of my product for the product testers. It looks like that's on hold for at least a few weeks.
It's kind of ironic. I have always claimed that the Spalding Method and the implementation of The Golden Swing Thing were a completion of the Ernest Jones method. Now I feel as though I'm just about as incapacitated as Jones was when he had the lower portion of his right leg amputated after World War One.

November 1, 1998--Both Tiger predictions comes true! Nine months ago I predicted that Tiger would not win a major in 1998 and that he would not win the money title. With the season all wrapped up, it is now official!
Had I known David Duval would take the title, I would have rooted for Tiger to prove my prediction wrong. I must confess that I'm not a big fan of David Duval.
