Gentlemen ... it's that time again.
Stay tuned for our new mini tournament league play, only in Leesburg.
[02/09/15] Huuuuuuuuuuuuuge props to Mark Stenmark and Kevin O'Connor for so strongly representing the Tom Putty Academy this weekend. Kevin's a newer tournament player and is already easily making the cut as one of the top 32 players at these events. Stenny, of course, is a freaking machine who just keeps taking home more Wins and more money with every passing event!
[09/23/14] 2015 courses loaded at King Pinz ... Come get some!!!!
[09/23/14] Patiently awaiting FedEx delivery of GT update
[02/21/14] Well, damn it all ... just got a message from Parker stating that tomorrow's festivities have been pushed back to a date as yet not known to me (Putty) ... my sincerest apologies for the lateness of the hour.

[06/01/13] Wuzzup, bitchez?
[05/06/13] Once again, thanks to EVERYONE who made the 3rd annual "Snow Cow Classic" such a kickass weekend ... from Kinz for making the trek from Chicago to be this years celebrity player, to those who drove as long as 3 hours and more to attend, to those who continuously offered to pitch in a helping hand (and were often taken up on your kind offers!) ... thanks again to every single person in attendance this year! We plan on running a similar event with a sibling company on ours later this year, so stay tuned for details!
[05/05/13] A big Thank You to everyone who showed up and participate in this year's tournament!!!
And proud we are of all of them!!! (please tag all the other Academy first timers)
[05/04/13] Safety meeting in 10 minutes!!!!!! Good luck today, gentlemen!
THIS SATURDAY!!!!! Make sure to check yourself in via the "Events" tab above and also feel free to share the link to the PDF (or print it and hand it out) to any local players who swipe a card and have an established handicap (in other words, they've been swiping a card since April 1st or earlier) ... PDF is linked in the first comment below.
Please feel free to print & share, or at least download and forward via email to your friends. Gonna be a GREAT day (and no, there will NOT be another all day cluster of a qualifier going on) and at the very least, 2 extremely fun, nicely paced events that will have us all wrapped up long before the sun goes down. Of course, anybody is free to stay longer and enjoy the casual after party that will go on until the last man's standing ... or 2am ... whichever comes first! ;)
Open the attached PDF, print it out and get some friends to join you! Please try and post any names of people you know (including yourself) who you expect to join us on the 5th!
Two weeks away!!!! Gonna be a good time!!!
Invite your friends, feed your marmot & remember your towel!
Just under a month away from the KING PINZ CHALLENGE THE KINZ tournament (officially, the 3rd annual no-snow Snow Cow Classic). As always, this is a handicap event.
Saturday, May 4th; sign up start at 10am!!!!
FIRST event will run from 11am until 12:30. This is a 70% h/c, winner takes all 4 player/machine game. Actually, it's 3 players per machine plus Kinz. 1 player per machine gets paid!
SECOND EVENT kicks off at 1pm ... this will be a double eliminations bracket style format. Seeding will be determined by handicap rather than by playing qualifying rounds (this is going to save us a *ton* of time), so event though it's double elimination this is still going to fly by. Players with a long drive home (and are not staying here overnight), or folks with evening plans will still be able to hit the road late afternoon. $25 buy-in, cash pay outs to 1st through 4th, prizes for 5th ~ 7th. We ARE working on an "added to" monies from the sponsoring bar (King Pinz), so make sure to show them some love that day!
The evening is going to be full of some mini events, shots and laughter. As for "mini events" we can go with some closest to the pin mini tournaments or blind draw scotch doubles; really depends on the number of people we have after the double header.
Again, the goal is to be done WELL before 5pm and I see no reason why we won't this year. Also, both of the opening double header events ARE handicapped (70% this year) ... that's the Snow Cow tradition, and we are one of the few handicap events in action, so we're sticking with it. Remember, Chris Hart (aka: TY COBB) won the last 2 years and he had to give away the most amount of strokes! The first game (Kinz Pinz' Challenge the Kinz) is everyone's best bet to win some money.
ATTENTION DC AREA PLAYERS!
Wanna win some free sh*t?
Then swing by King Pinz in Leesburg, VA and spin some rounds of Golden Tee during the month of April to qualify for some pretty cool free sh*t!
* 5 rounds of 18 holes gets you a free set of sampler bottles from Voodoo Chile Sauces & Salsa. (1)

*** 15 rounds wins you your choice of personalized t-shirt (choose from "Recovery Channel" logo Laughing Ninja Entertainment, or Tom Putty Academy of Golden Tee & Beer, or a Voodoo Chile "Porcus Tormentum" atomic demon pig t-shirt)
**** 20 rounds gets you a free entry into the KINZ vs PINZ CHALLENGE on May 4th, 2013 (2)
- or -
**** 20+ rounds gets you a free entry to the main handicap tournament being held at King Pinz on May 4th, 2013. (3)
*1: must play 18 hole games using a VALID ITS/Golden Tee player account to qualify for any of the above prizes OR to participate in the various tournament events on May 4th, 2013.
*2: limited slots available, contact Tom Putty or Christian Parker for availability

[03/18/13] Working out a date for the next Academy Tournament. Stay tuned for details ... and we are working on flying in an internationally reknowned GT celebrity for the event!
ANOTHER big congrats are in order for Academy graduate and honorable former resident the Tom Putty Shelter for Wayward & Abused Anglers, Mr. Mark "SUQ IT" Stenmark, for his 728th 1st place finish at a PEGT tour event. Ok, maybe not quite that many 1st place finishes, but he's certainly been on one HELL of a rip since his reprieve from reality at the Shelter. CONGRTS, Sir Stenny!!!!
Dammit ... we missed the End of the World again, didn't we?
Seriously, have you seen a SINGLE Mayan person in the past month?
Welcome back to the top, Mr. Eversole! Good job knocking the Academy's own Mark Stenmark down to 2nd place.
Great job, gentlemen ... and good times as always!
[10/01/12] Headed out to install 2013 updates at the Tom Putty Academy (*located inside of King Pinz in sunny Leesburg, VA!*)
[10/01/12] 2013 updates are in hand ... now just waiting for King Pinz to open their doors and let us in!!!!!!!
[10/01/12] MERRY GT CHRISTMAS MORNING!!!!!!!
[09/28/12] Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls, children of ALL ages ... All 3 GT machines at the Academy (located at King Pinz in Leesburg, VA) will have the 2013 courses up and running by lunchtime this Monday! If you're in the DC area and simply can't wait until Tuesday, Wednesday or later for your vendor to get your machines updated, then the Academy is the place to be for some Day One Golden Tee "Christmas" action!
[09/18/12] Trying to work some drink specials for "2013 Release Day" at the Academy. We're gonna have the update installed on all 3 machines at King Pinz hours, if not DAYS, before most of the bars in the DC area. Let me know if you plan on swinging by Monday, October 1st!
[08/29/12] Bummer ... the deal with the goodly folks at "Drinking Made Easy" fell through, and in retrospect, I think it could have been a disaster having their film crew at a tournament, even on a Friday. Anyhow, on to bigger and better things! Like ... GT2013 and what is, quite sadly, looking to be the very last Not In Vegas hosted by the Great Jefe of the Baja Bean Co. Hoping to see everyone there the weekend of Oct 6th!
Working on rough drafts for upcoming and short "training video" series for YouTube. Solely being done for the entertainment value, but I'd like to at least have a couple/few nuggets in each episode that would be worthwhile to a new "addict" who's searching the interwebz for something to help their game. Ultimately, each video will provide a link to GoldenTeeFan.com as well as an invitation to attend an upcoming tournament and ask about the "Play with a Champ" program (or whatever Steve & Russ call it)
ANY input is welcome, and I openly invite anyone who'd be interested in helping out. It'd be great having some clips from some more seasoned players about using different shots, etc.

If you haven't checked this show out yet, give it a whiel. Look up "HD Net" on your cable or satellite provider's list. FUN STUFF!!!!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, I know ... I should've pimped this yesterday as this is a Wednesday night show. HD Net shows re-runs numerous times during the rest of the week, though.

[03/12/12] Next event to most LIKELY be held in Gainesville, VA. Neil gave me some great ideas today that I think will make the next tourney not only run much smoother and more quickly, but even more fun! Stay tuned for more details and please feel free to offer any input here!
I thought it wan an outstanding day yesterday! Thanks to EVERYONE who attended and congrats to Chris TY COBB Hart, now the reigning, two-time Snow Cow champion! In 2nd place we had Scott SAVAGE Greenholtz, 3rd to Joe CRAZY Janosik and 4th place to Desmond DMONEY Burke!!
A HUGE thank you to ALL who attended! I PROMISE the next event will NOT be that long! LOL
