Phil Mickelson and his sister, Tina, a local teaching pro, have gone multimedia in separate ventures.
Phil released his DVD, “Phil Mickelson: Secrets to the Short Game,” in early May, and it debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s list of sales of recreational sports DVDs.
In an interesting story from after the release, tour veteran Ted Purdy said he bought the two-disc set ($49.99) in the airport because his short game was “just awful.” He watched it, worked on the advice, and two weeks later at the Valero Texas Open he posted his first top-10 since February 2007. Since then, Purdy has been in the 60s in six of eight rounds.

For over a decade, I have watched with great anticipation the transformation of the Internet from a basic information portal just 10 years ago to what it is today, an essential communication, multimedia, and information vehicle that connects our entire world.

It’s that time of the month again — time for another epic issue of Australia’s Freerider MX magazine to hit the streets. Kyle Loza nabbed himself the cover of issue 55 and if I’m not mistaken, this is Loza’s first-ever cover, so congrats on that homie. Freerider MX has just been killing it with the covers lately… it’s almost like they have an entire department dedicated to making the covers as ill as possible.
On top of releasing a new issue, the boys over at FRMX have been busy harnessing new technology in an effort to bring the mag to the masses via the internet. The new digital edition of Freerider MX will be available May 20th (when issue 55 hits the newsstands) and the best part about it is that it’ll only cost $1 an issue. Also, if you subscribe, then you know that each issue of FRMX includes an in-house-produced DVD, but now you don’t have to subscribe to get your hands on the vid. All you have to do is visit FreeriderMX.com/Youreeeka and you can watch the DVD’s online for $3.99. Pretty sweet, aye? Australian’s say aye don’t they? Or is that just the Canadians? Either way, they’re both weird peeps.
