I know, I know...

I am so so sorry it has been so long since my last post!!! I have the ability to try and use so many excuses, but there are not really any that would denote the fact that I have let my blog go by the way side! I have a new vigor for sharing my experiences with you all and am so stoked to get back into blogging! I hope you can all forgive me and continue to enjoy my life's sharings with you all!!! Oh, and by the way, you all have @urfriendbwhite to thank for me getting back into this. He gave me Hell for not giving him something to read and continue to be enthralled with, so this one's for you, kiddo!!!
And since @johnraser introduced myself to B White, I suppose we should thank him as well. Actually, JR has been an inspiration anyway, a true friend that has accepted me for the good AND the grumpy, and I wish nothing but the best for him. You rock, dudes.

Ugh... Where to even begin... Since I last posted (prior to my Book Signing Schedule, which I will be updating every time there is a new venue, by the way...), I have played a half dozen tournaments or so... Or at least been seen on the golf course, with a golf club in my hands, thrashing away at the grass, anyway. I have been undergoing a lot of swing changes, as well as trying to juggle a bunch of commitments, book signings, and what have you.
I am just going to focus on one of the highlights of the year so far, though, which has got to be my participation in The Mojo 6 where I finished as a quarterfinalist, or T5. I know that not everyone was able to witness the sheer beauty of the region, feel the wind whipping against your face or the sun kissing your skin, or play the majestic golf course that is Cinnamon Hill at Rose Hall (and I highly recommend anyone that may get the opportunity to do so), but I truly hope everyone was able to witness the coverage and be left with a desire for more. More Mojo. More near hole outs on the first hole (happened to me in the first two matches!), more battling it out in a short spurt of energy where Every. Single. Shot. Could. Determine. The. Match. More triumph. More tragedy. More emotion, and more More MORE!!!! I had such an amazing time with the other 15 players, can not wait for Mariah Stackhouse to start to make a real splash on the golf world. She is an incredible young woman, a fierce competitor, and a wonderful ambassadress for loving life.

Here I am with Mariah, a future star in the world. Not just the world of golf, but the world. Period. She is going to be a mover and shaker. And speaking of movers, here I am with Usain Bolt, the world's fastest man. He and I had quite a few laughs when I met him, and he even used my driver when he hit his first teeshot ever. And man, HE IS TALL!!!!!!

 Here are a few pics from the last night out we had. There was champagne, dancing, a true celebration for a wonderful tournament. That is Ed Moses, 2000 Olympic Gold Medalist, one of the founders of Mojo Marketing and Media, and one of my closest friends. An awesome human being, and one of the driving forces as to my desire to want to change the world. As time goes on, I may touch up on some, if not all of the other tournaments, but The Mojo 6 was an incredibly fun week, one which I would never want to trade for the world!

OK, that is all for now! I am going to get some shuteye before heading out to the beach for a weekend fun trip with the girls! Ciao for now!!!
