Introducing New Blogger: Allan McDonell

Every so often we like to shake things up at, and our latest attempt should be interesting, to say the least.

We’ve undertaken a reclamation project and have agreed to a new blogger: Allan McDonell, the opinionated, long-hitting club pro and shirt folder extraordinarie from Angus Glen Golf Club in lovely Markham, Ont. Allan’s blog, “Leaning on the Counter,” will try to answer all those questions you’ve wondered about your local club pro: Do they get to play lots of free golf? (Answer: No) Was McDonell ever tour material? (Answer: No, again) And does he care about your grip? (Answer: Not at the moment).

Actually, Allan is a funny, sharp pro who has been at Angus, well, forever, and will share his insights and opinions with us all. He might actually be more opinionated than me — I know that’s hard to imagine.

Anyway, I don’t want to steal Allan’s thunder, so stumble over, or point your mouse, or whatever pointing implement you use, and head to his blog. Right here.
