Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil. Resistance to ScoringHow difficult, while still being fair, is the course for a scratch player from the back tees?3. November 27, 2011 - London Vatican's chief exorcist has claimed that practicing yoga and reading 'Harry Potter' brings evil. He went to graduate school at Boston College, became a social worker, got married, raised four children, got elected to the Clinton Board of Selectmen and over the past years, has watched three wars unfold on his television screen.
Design VarietyHow varied are the holes in differing lengths, configurations, hazard placements, green shapes and green contours?4. If you can make more shots fly off the face faster and if you can make it easier for a player to deliver the club to the ball with greater alacrity, you’ve accomplished Job No.
Father Gabriel Amorth, who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms in the past 25 years after being appointed by the late Pope John Paul II, surprised delegates at a conference by revealing his dislike for yoga and 'Harry Potter'. Dziokonski, who was a Navy corpsman assigned to a Marine Corps rifle company in Vietnam and a recipient of two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star with a Combat "V," considers himself a strong man, a self-described curmudgeon. MemorabilityHow well do the design features provide individuality to each hole yet a collective continuity to the entire 18?5. 1 in driver design.The trouble is making a driver larger and more forgiving often makes it more difficult to deliver to the ball with speed.
And thus the irony of his ongoing huff-and-puff with people behind the plans for offshore wind farms near his new course in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.Trump International Golf Links is set to open this summer.
So when he found himself at the top of a mountain crying over a dead butterfly, he knew he needed help. They may both seem innocuous but they both deal with magic and that leads to evil," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying. And he found relief and release in a yoga program designed specifically for war veterans called Yoga Warriors International. ConditioningHow firm, fast and rolling were the fairways, and how firm yet receptive were the greens on the day you played the course? Resolving those cross purposes is the mission of the second generation XR drivers, the XR16 and XR16 Pro, which the company debuted today. Q: When did you start making it for tour pros?Two years ago at a Nationwide event I gave some to [player] Scott Brown, and he said I should sell it.
The XR16 stretches farther front to back than last year’s XR to produce a higher moment of inertia.
There wasn't much light until the last day, but I was always set up in case it peeked through. Cimini, the founding director of Central Mass Yoga and Wellness in West Boylston, designed to alleviate the symptoms of combat stress or post-traumatic stress disorder.
Andrews, Carnoustie and Dornoch, and I finished at Tain, an Old Tom Morris course at the inland end of Dornoch Firth.
The increased MOI yields a more stable head on off-center hits so there’s less energy loss on mis-hits. That last round went by so fast that it left me with most of a day to fill, so I asked my playing partners, who were Tain regulars, if they could recommend a course on the long road to the airport -- any course at all. Speaking on the subject of People And Religion at a fringe event at the Umbria Film Festival in Terni, Father Amorth spoke of his distaste for JK Rowling's young wizard.
They suggested Kingussie, just off the A9, about a third of the way between Dornoch and Glasgow, in what is now Cairngorms National Park. In Harry Potter the Devil is at work in a cunning and crafty way, he is using his extraordinary powers of magic and evil," he said.
My expectations were neither high nor low; I just wanted one more chance to swing my clubs.
He studies each and everyone of us and our tendencies towards good and evil and then he tempts us. With PTSD, your emotions are ruled by what happened 20 or 30 years ago." Dziokonski originally took yoga to gain more flexibility. You could never hold a British Open there -- among other reasons, the course is almost 2,000 yards too short for a major championship -- and golf-tour operators rarely send American travelers to play it. Hawtree did a really great routing that takes advantage of the spectacular views, while weaving over and around the dunes.
As he practiced yoga, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were unfolding a world away, but were hitting close to home for Dziokonski. This is not the first time that the 85-year-old has raised eyebrows with his forthright views, as last year he had said that the ongoing child sex scandals rocking the Catholic Church were evidence that "the Devil was at work in the Vatican". The course (which was expanded and redesigned by Harry Vardon in 1908) is set in and around the elevated valley of the River Gynack, in the rocky hills above the village. The war was in our living room," Dziokonski said, recalling the firefights that were being broadcast on the nightly news. The first hole is a long, semi-blind par 3, the sixth is a short par 4 that plays past the ruin of an old shieling, or shepherd's hut, and the 14th, called the Dyke, runs along an old stone wall. No American golfer would travel to the birthplace of the game to play a course like Kingussie -- but, well, why not? FacebookPinterestThe aerodynamic challenge with the XR16 Pro isn’t so much its footprint front to back, but its deeper face. Again, the step in the front part of the crown is designed to mitigate some of those negative aerodynamic effects. In fact, Dziokonski had asked her to teach a class at the Worcester Veterans Center, which fellow veterans later decided to continue.
Both drivers offer a range of nearly two dozen no-upcharge shafts in addition to the stock Fujikura Speeder Evolution 565 (standard) and Evolution II TS 665 (Pro).FacebookPinterestThe XR16 line also includes updated fairway woods in both the standard and Pro models.


In addition, she is the co-author of a study that will appear in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, "The Effects of Sensory Enhanced Hatha Yoga on Symptoms of Combat Stress in Deployed Military Personnel." The study was done by Maj.
I'd rent a car at the airport, throw my clubs in the back, ask strangers for recommendations, search my road map for blue pennants and see where serendipity took me. The main change is an improved off-center hit performance thanks to a larger footprint and face size. Jon Greuel, an Air Force instructor pilot, in Kirkuk, Iraq, from November 2008 to November 2009 in collaboration with Cimini.
She is also working with Worcester State University to study the effect of the Yoga Warrior program on military students at the university. Most of the most famous golf courses are within 30 or 40 miles of that short band, so American golf travelers tend to see the country through a very narrow window.
If you break free of the populous axis by driving north or south, though, the cities quickly give way to villages, the highways turn into winding roads, and the pubs become less likely to be filled with quartets of middle-age American men wearing Bandon Dunes windshirts. Part of the key to optimizing that MOI and head size is the thinnest crown on a fairway wood in Callaway’s history. I began my back-roads journey where I had ended my first Scottish golf trip, at Kingussie, a couple of hours northeast of Glasgow.
Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn is one of the local studios offering the Yoga Warriors class with a certified instructor. My memory had placed the village on the wrong side of the highway, but I recognized the clubhouse, which is painted white and green and was built in 1911, 20 years after the founding of the club. The high-strength forged Carpenter 455 steel alloy in the face cup gets as thin as .043 inches at the perimeter to improve flexibility. Zest Yoga and Fitness in Auburn began offering a Yoga Warriors class in September, and is open to all veterans and active-duty military personnel. Dziokonski, who regularly attends a Thursday morning Yoga Warriors session, said yoga has returned to him a sense of calm, and has improved his sleep.
When we had finished, we had a drink with a group of regulars sitting at two picnic tables outside the clubhouse.
Many Vietnam veterans are enrolled in Yoga Warriors, and also some World War II veterans, and now Iraq War veterans. This year, the wave-like feature stretches 40 percent closer to the face for lower spin and more consistent energy transfer.
Dziokonski and Cimini said the emotional impact the war has on returning veterans may not become evident until months or years later. FacebookPinterestThe XR16 fairway woods are available in 10 lofts, including seven in the standard size and three in the more compact Pro version. The Donald is going to grow old fast if Trump International Golf Links is exposed to a lot of eight-club winds. The conversation then veered into a discussion of Newtonmore's golf course, which my new friends unanimously dismissed as too flat to bother with. The standard model (14, 15.5, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25) includes a 3+ with a 43-inch shaft that can double as a larger, backup driving club for better players, as well as both a 9-wood and an 11-wood. That evening (after a second 18), I drove over to Newtonmore and watched a youth shinty practice, the only form of the game available locally that evening.
In addition to the 14-degree standard model, the three Pro lofts (14.5, 16 and 18 degrees) all feature an open face and flatter lie angles. I stood with a group of shinty moms in a parking lot filled with Scottish minivans and saw that grade-school shinty players, unlike the adult shinty players I had heard about in the stories at the picnic table at Kingussie, wear helmets and still have their teeth.
I set out the next morning after breakfast at my hotel, the Osprey, on Kingussie's charming main street. The village of Boat of Garten (population 700) was named for a nearby river ferry, long since put out of business by a bridge. The region is a major summertime destination for bird watchers, among others; Loch Garten, a nearby lake, is part of a nature reserve. There are four clocks on the wall above the counter in the golf shop; they give the time in Boat of Garten, Pebble Beach, Augusta and the United Arab Emirates. The Boat's first hole, which runs past a station of the Strathspey Steam Railway, is a so-so par 3, but the second is a terrific par 4, and many more terrific holes follow. On the fourth, I caught up to Andy and Pat, a retired couple from Aberdeen, and played the rest of the way with them. Andy had lured Pat to the course by assuring her that it was flat, and he did penance for this significant untruth by helping to pull her trolley up the steeper hills, of which there were many. He was wearing a broad-brimmed hat, leather boots, a green jacket, brown plus fours and long, yellow socks. During a work-avoidance Google session at home, before I left, I came across the website of a remote Scottish golf club called Askernish, on the island of South Uist, in the Outer Hebrides, a wind-swept and sparsely populated archipelago off the country's west coast, and decided that I ought to visit it. I learned from the website that Old Tom Morris had designed the original Askernish course, in 1891, but that the holes had later been abandoned.
Locals still play golf on the site, a stretch of pristine linksland on the island's Atlantic coast, but no photograph or record of the old layout has survived. In fact, the connection with Morris had largely been forgotten until a few years ago, when the club's chairman, a storekeeper named Ralph Thompson, found a reference in an old golf publication.
I communicated with Thompson by e-mail before I left the United States, and the day after I played Boat of Garten (as well as a nearby course, called Grantown-on-Spey, which Andy and Pat had recommended), I took off for the Outer Hebrides from the little airport at Inverness, near the northern end of Loch Ness. The only other passengers were two bank couriers, who were accompanying a shipment of currency. Thompson -- who is 52, and had accurately described himself to me as the largest man I was likely to encounter in the Outer Hebrides -- met me at the airport in Benbecula, the island just north of South Uist, to which it is connected by a causeway.
We waited there for two other visitors: Martin Ebert, a golf architect from England, and Gordon Irvine, a course consultant and master greenkeeper, who grew up in Turnberry.
Ebert and Irvine are in their early 40s and are links specialists, and the fact that their trip coincided with mine was a lucky accident. They had come to walk the course, which they had been working on for more than a year, and to take GPS readings of tee and green locations.


I spent two nights on the island, and very happily played three rounds on Ebert and Irvine's proposed layout while carrying just four clubs. All 18 holes had names, because Thompson and half a dozen other Askernish regulars had named them a few months earlier, during a beer-assisted meeting in the bar of the Borrodale Hotel, just down the road from the course. They had decided, for example, to call the seventh hole Cabinet Minister, the name of a wrecked ship in Whisky Galore!, a late-1940s British comic novel and movie. Politician), which ran aground near South Uist while carrying a cargo that included more than 250,000 bottles of whisky.
Islanders rowed to the wreck and salvaged the booze, then hid the bottles in chimneys and rabbit holes, and stayed drunk for months. I played one of my Askernish rounds with a local man who said that his father was 10 years old at the time of the wreck and was given a bottle of whisky by his (thoroughly inebriated) father, who told him, in effect, to bring himself up. LESSONS FOR LENNON Before I left the Hebrides, Thompson gave me the names of a number of courses he said I ought to play, among them several to the east of Inverness, within an hour or two of the airport. I also learned that Reay Golf Club, 60 miles east of Durness, is called the northernmost links in the United Kingdom, and that golf has been played there since 1893. Back in 1992, when I mentioned to a waitress in Perth that I would be driving that night to Dornoch, about 150 miles away, she was flabbergasted that anyone would even contemplate such a journey. He said that he lived nearby, and that before retiring he had worked for many years for the region's only significant employer, a nuclear-power facility just down the road.
When I explained the purpose of my trip and asked where they thought I should play the next day, one of the fathers suggested skipping Durness and going instead to Tain, back down the road toward Inverness.
I said that Tain was probably too well known to qualify for my itinerary and that, besides, I had played it 15 years before. It's a links course on a sandy promontory on the southern side of Dornoch Firth, and on a clear day you can look across the water to Dornoch.
To make an 18-hole round you play eight of the holes twice and substitute a different par 3, a 155-yarder, for the 125-yard seventh on your second time around. They were competing in a club tournament but had no expectation of winning any prizes and so didn't mind having me along. My playing partners did not doubt where I should go next: Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club, about 40 miles southwest. The first hole, a 317-yard par 4, plays down a vertiginous hill, and if you make a smooth swing, as you almost can't help doing at that altitude, you can drive the green.
The second hole, a 244-yard par 4, plays straight up a different hill, and it's followed by four consecutive par 3s.
The terrain is severe -- the course is very literally not for the faint of heart -- but the scenery is spectacular, and the holes, though unusual, are fun to play. I followed a junior match, in which the competitors' caddies -- of whom there were five -- were frequently unable to agree on which of them was supposed to be carrying what. After my round, I had a drink in the clubhouse bar with the club captain, who gave me a Strathpeffer ball marker and green-repair tool and introduced me to several of his friends.
When I told him that I was going to drive east that night, he shook his head and said that my next stop had to be Gairloch, a nine-hole links course in an isolated village on the west coast -- an hour and a half in the opposite direction. I'm glad I did, in part because the drive -- through the desolate mountains of Wester Ross and along the western shore of Loch Maree, on a road that sometimes narrowed to a single lane -- was beautiful.
I got a room at a small hotel on Gairloch's harbor and was awakened during the night by what sounded like a hundred-year typhoon lashing against my window. So I zipped up my rainsuit (a Sun Mountain RainFlex, my favorite of the many I've owned), let myself through the gate, and teed off alone.
I watched her raise the Gairloch flag in a wind that was almost strong enough to rip it from the pole, then made breakfast of a couple of candy bars from the golf shop.
I played nine more holes, returned to my hotel to take a hot shower and check out, and, at last, headed east. FLYING FLAGS AND FLASKS My destination was Cullen, in Morayshire, on the southern coast of the Moray Firth. The book describes the terrain at Cullen as "not typical linksland because on several holes the golfer has to negotiate abandoned sea-cliffs and stacks. When I got to Cullen, late that afternoon, the sky was brilliantly blue, but the wind was blowing so hard that it not only knocked over my golf bag if I left it standing but once actually rolled it on the ground. I loved the course, though, and eventually joined (as the fifth player) a lively, welcoming group of older golfers from a club called Hopeman, about 30 miles west.
This was their second round of the day, and they were playing a scramble, in competition with three other groups from their club. Most of them were carrying flasks, from which they were sipping a mixture of something and Drambuie -- I couldn't quite make out the recipe -- and their golf bags were so full of empty beer bottles that they clanked when the wind knocked them over. Hopeman has one truly great hole, the 12th, a downhill 137-yarder that can require as much as a 3-wood from the tee, depending on the wind.
From there I drove south through the mountains for several hours, on tiny, winding roads, to Forfar, a club that two Hopeman members had recommended.
Part of my route coincided with Scotland's Malt Whisky Trail, and took me past the Glen Moray, Glen Grant and Glenlivet distilleries.
I wasn't really planning to play but suddenly found myself in the golf shop, handing my credit card to the wife of the head pro.
A ladies' medal competition was going on just ahead of me so I had plenty of time to admire the course, which is well inland and is surrounded by farms but feels very much like a links course, in part because most of the fairways have distinctive undulations, like gentle ocean rollers -- remnants of ancient flax furrows, Brian had told me. Mightn't it even be considered a golf sin to come so near the Old Course and not at least try to play it? Andrews Links Trust, to see if there might be some possibility of getting on the Old Course that afternoon from the singles line (the best strategy for a lone golfer without a tee time).
