    While reading "Golf My Way" by Jack Nicklaus in the 1970s I discovered I have the same size hands as his.  He included a life-size image of his hand.

    IIRC, Jack said he uses an interlocking grip because he has small hands, so I do too.

    His book is the only golf instruction book I ever owned or needed.

     and to imagine that he won 17 of his Majors using his trusty Bristol Wizard putter and his 1965 MacGregor VIP irons...

    also...221 years ago King Louis XVI of France, got his head chopped off via the guillotine...let us return to the 'Golden Bear'...

    January 23...or simply, 123

    On this date:  Huckleberry Sausalito was born in Sow-walk Holler, West Virginny (exact year is still debated by Historians). Huck had this great big, pink, uncircumsized, hillbilly dong that had a semi-serious dog-leg left to it. His IQ was 60...or was it 65? I can't remember...let's settle at 62.5...anyway, he was able to learn the art of ambidexterity (some say he could even spell it) and because of influence from his childhood neighbors,, the coal miners daughter and Carl from sling blade fame, coupled with his natural limber, double jointed gifts, he became so skilled at blowing the skin flute that history provides no other example.

    ...also on this date, the 'Jackson Five' recorded the hit guessed it...1,2,3

    Other Notable events to follow...
