red adidas superstar England and I’m a Celebrity ahead of book launch

It’s a profound title for an autobiography. But Kieron Dyer is happy with it.

‘Old too soon, smart too late’, pretty well describes the career of one of England’s ‘Golden Generation’ on and off the pitch Dyer, the Ipswich born schoolboy, made good.

Kieron Dyer celebrates scoring his injury time goal that made it 3 2 to Ipswich and levelled the tie at 3 3 on aggregate when Town played Bolton in the Division One play offs in 1999.

Almost 100 appearances for his home town club, a 6m move to Newcastle United and 200 more appearances, 33 England caps, money, fame, women, houses, fast cars. Dyer has enjoyed the lot.

But much of it came at a price.

One of a plethora of young England stars in the new millennium, Dyer became famed not just for his on pitch skills, but his off pitch antics.

His autobiography, out in February, is warts and all. it will shock.

“I don’t hold back,” Dyer said.

“People don’t know me. Most have never known me. I’ve finished playing professionally now. I don’t have to be politically correct, I tell it as it is.

“I’ve made monumental errors, I know that, but I think people will be touched how honest I’ve been in this book. I’ve no excuses. Hopefully people will know me a bit better after they’ve read it.

“The publishers have told me it’s the best and most honest autobiography they have ever worked on.

Kieron Dyer on the ball against Wolves for Ipswich in 1997

“They said every chapter ends with you going, ‘wow’, then ‘wow’ for the next chapter, ‘wow’ the next one. There is no downtime, no stopping.

“When you hear people telling you that, then you know you’ve done something good. I’m really proud of how it has come out.”

Dyer remains an Ipswich Town fan.

Newcastle’s Alan Shearer (left) and Kieron Dyer reflect on their penalty shoot out defeat against Partizan Belgrade in the Champions League qualifying round match at St James’ Park, Newcastle. Shearer and Dyer both missed spot kicks as Newcastle lost 4 3, following a 1 1 aggregate draw after extra time.

Today he works at the club’s academy. “Trying to be the next Mourinho or Guardiola,” he laughs.

But his is a story far from full of laughter there have been some very upsetting times.

He knows he has been his own worst enemy, but gossip, innuendo and ‘fake news’ is rarely funny. An emotional guy, this book delves into his personal life in a way you cannot imagine.

“I reckon 99% of footballers come from working class backgrounds, many broken homes, even poverty,” Dyer said.

England’s Kieron Dyer prepares to cross the ball to Alan Shearer for his hat trick goal during the Luxembourg Euro 2000 qualifier football match at Wembley. It was Dyer’s debut for his country. He went on to make 33 appearances.

“It’s not an excuse, but a lot of players are brought up poor. Then, just like I was, suddenly at 20 years of age, I’m a millionaire!

“The first thing I did when I left Ipswich and moved to Newcastle was buy a flat on the Quayside. Anyone who knows Newcastle knows that’s the hub of nightlife in the city.

“Me, 20 years old, loads of money, in the centre of Newcastle. Today, that would never be allowed to happen.

“What I was doing as a 20 year old plenty of 20 year olds were doing a similar thing, some still are, all that Ayia Napa stuff in 2000 (involving a sex tape), it doesn’t make it right, of course not, but because of who we were it was broadcast on a different level. As you get older, you get wiser of course.

Newcastle United’s Kieron Dyer celebrates his goal against Southampton during the FA Cup fifth round match at St James’ Park, Newcastle in 2006.

“My book is coming out in February, my son Kie, who is 17, is planning to go on his first lads’ holiday in the summer. All I can do is give him words of advice, tell him where you went wrong and hope he takes it on board.”

adidas new trainers Engine 93 turns 109 years old

“BIG ENGINE COMING Engine 93, the fourth of the monster type in use in the ore train service, will be started from the Pittsburg shops of the American Locomotive Co. on the 15th of this month for East Ely, according to advices that have been received.” was the headline in White Pine News, Jan. 6, 1909.

On Jan. Ticket price is $10.90.

Locomotive 93 was the last of four locomotives ordered for ore line service by the American Smelters Securities Co. (a Guggenheim entity) for the Nevada Northern Railway. Built in January 1909 at the American Locomotive Works Pittsburg plant (construction number 44604).

Considered by the White Pine News to be a “monster” locomotive she is actually a midsize steam locomotive. Her wheel arrangement is 2 8 0. That means she has two pilot wheels to guide her around curves and eight driving wheels that delivered a tractive effort of 41,890 foot pounds, with no trailing wheels. A century ago, she cost $17,610.

In January 1952, the other three locomotives that were part of the original order with Locomotive 93 were sent to McGill to be scrapped. Finally, in 1961, her days on the Nevada Northern Railway were over. She was donated to the White Pine Public Museum where she was put on display; a remembrance of the way it was in White Pine County. For any other locomotive this would have been a death sentence. Outdoors, year after year, with no protection from the weather, she sat.

In 1990, Locomotive 93 was towed back to the Nevada Northern Railway engine house. Project 93 was started with the goal of putting Locomotive 93 back in operating condition. The work that was done was just enough so she could pull trains again. In 1993, after three years of hard work, Locomotive 93 was back in service. Now she began her second career of pulling excursion trains instead of ore trains. This was the second time she escaped the scrapper’s cutting torch.

Life looked good for Locomotive 93; she had escaped the fate of most steam locomotives: the scrapper’s cutting torch twice now. But just two years after her rebirth, disaster struck. As Locomotive 93 was heading up through town towards Keystone with an excursion train, unbeknownst to her train crew, a flat car of ties had broken lose from Keystone. Heading to town at over sixty miles an hour, it slammed into Locomotive 93.

The force of the collision was such that the tank broke free from the frame and smashed into the cab. The front of the locomotive was mangled and the frame was broken in multiple places. It would now be cut up and sold for scrap.

Instead, in a remote community, 240 miles from anywhere, Locomotive 93 was repaired. In two years’ time, repairs were complete and Locomotive 93 was back in service. She had miraculously dodged the scrapper’s torch for a third time.

But Locomotive 93 is lucky. An event in Utah would have major ramifications for Locomotive 93. Utah had been selected as the site for the 2002 Winter Olympics. One of the venues was Soldier Hollow. There were only two ways to get in, one by bus and one by rail served by the Heber Valley Scenic Railway.

The Heber Valley Scenic Railway invited the Nevada Northern Railway to work with them to provide steam powered rail service to the Olympic venue.

Rebuilding a steam locomotive in the 21st century is not for the faint of heart. In addition to finding vendors for obscure parts, like steam locomotive axles, it takes money, bunches and bunches of money.

On Dec. 27, 2008, Locomotive 93 rolled out of the enginehouse under her own power for the first test run. Finally on Jan. the official Centennial Birthday Celebration started. Governor Jim Gibbons rode locomotive 93 from the enginehouse to the depot. At the depot, in front of a large crowd, the Governor read a proclamation proclaiming January 17, 2009 Engine 93 Day.

In October 2016, Locomotive hit the 1,472 day or 15 year inspection requirement. This would entail stripping the boiler so it could be inspected. Starting in February 2017 the work started. In less than a year, the work is complete! On January 13th, Locomotive 93 will once again be back in service, ready for another 15 years of service.

To keep a steam locomotive in operation in the 21st century, people worked until late at night, while others start early in the morning. They worked in miserable conditions.

To fund the work, others dug deep into their pockets to supply the cash necessary for the repairs. Through their combined efforts, a piece of White Pine County, a piece of Nevada’s past and a piece of our country’s past, was saved.

The people I believe who really deserve a shout out, are the doers. Operating a steam locomotive in the 21st Century is demanding. Yet, these doers are up to the task. Six times Locomotive 93 dodged the bullet. How? It was because everyone pitching together, either turning wrenches or donating money.

Keeping steam locomotives operating in the 21st century, just doesn’t happen, it is the combined efforts of lots of people. Mark Bassett, President of the Nevada Northern Railway said “nothing happens without money.” Annually, The First National Bank of Ely challenged the friends and members of the museum to a $30,000 Challenge. The bank committed to match memberships and donations, dollar for dollar up to $30,000. As years in past, the friends and members of the museum met to the challenge and surpassed it. Bassett said “a big hearty thank you, because of your contributions, Locomotive 93 will be steamed up for her 109th birthday celebration on Saturday, January 13th at 1:00 pm. And perhaps more importantly, because of the work accomplished with your donations, Locomotive 93 will be steaming through 2033”.

adidas football shoes enforces image of racist cop

Scandals like this the officer was suspended and then resigned re enforce what many African Americans have long suspected: There are racist police officers in this country who fear and loathe blacks.

New technologies, from police dash and body cameras to cellphones and social media, are shining a glaring light on the words and deeds of some police officers. And it is not pretty.

The nation has seen blacks shot and killed even in real time by officers during routine traffic stops. Videos posted online for all the world to see show the way fatal altercations played out and those videos are speaking truth to power for the dead.

Convictions are still rare, but at least there some chance for real justice.

In December, a white former South Carolina police officer was sentenced to 20 years in prison for killing an unarmed black man in 2015. Michael Slager shot Walter Scott from behind as Scott was running from a traffic stop.

In January 2017, prosecutors accused a former Palm Beach Gardens police officer of lying about the shooting of stranded driver Corey Jones, a musician who had been waiting innocently for roadside assistance. Recordings showed that officer Nouman Raja lied about the shooting. He has been fired and faces charges of manslaughter and attempted murder, according to news reports.

Todd Shaw, the former assistant police chief and longtime police officer in Prospect, Ky., who allegedly sent the racist Facebook messages, resigned last year. The messages were described by a county official as “highly disturbing” and “threatening.”

According to news reports, while discussing the right response if juveniles were caught smoking marijuana, Shaw allegedly told a recruit,
la trainer adidas enforces image of racist cop
“F the right thing. If black shoot them.” As to how to deal with the teenagers’ parents, Shaw allegedly told the recruit to have sex with both of them. “Unless daddy is black. Then shoot him.”

The assistant police chief attorney told a newspaper that Shaw was just in the emails.

The evil mentality seen in those messages isn any different from the mentality of lynching parties of old who hanged blacks from trees for sport.

How and why are officers who harbor such views selected for and promoted within police forces nationwide? How many more are there in the ranks who think like him?

For real progress, we need more people of color in law enforcement, and better law enforcement training. We also need justice to be served in cases of disgraced officers who lack integrity, break the law, and do a disservice to the honorable officers who put their lives on the line daily.

According to news reports, Shaw also allegedly wrote derogatory messages about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., adding, “but because someone shot him, I get a day off with pay each year so I will take it.”

That why activists keep fighting to change this mentality, which so weakens our society.

In this year of the 50th anniversary of King assassination, the nation owes it to his legacy to come together and work harder for change.

As we celebrate Black History Month, it is time to look at how far we have come and what we need to do to forge a more just nation, and a more hopeful tomorrow for all Americans.

Attorney Benjamin Crump is a civil rights advocate who represents the family of Corey Jones and has worked on dozens of other high profile civil rights cases.

adidas grey trainers Ending Restructuring Includes interview

The restructuring has been reported in the news, not always in a favorable light due to the slow nature of the process, as well as lack of product profit improvement to date.

Reebok reported two major issues as causes for profit loss:

But are the above two the only issues plaguing Reebok today? Product viability and the lag in the restructuring process have experts scratching their heads, as does the fact that the economic crisis was not made known to the consumer until October 2008.

Business restructuring, also called a “turnaround strategy”, is a common practice for companies who have a failing product. It allows a stronger company to lend its resources, which can be in the form of marketing, product analysis and product design, and to “mentor” the company in need of assistance while it catches its business breath. Basic steps include ensuring top people and their leaders are protected personally as much as possible against lawsuits; taking complete control of cash flow; identifying the money making products within the company, known as the “core business”; and developing and carrying out a restructuring plan, which can include cutting out customers, products, services, and employees not part of the core business.

Uli Becker, chief executive of Reebok, admits to the slow process, saying he underestimated the amount of time for Reebok to be restructured. 1 But the Reebok story is being viewed as a never ending saga. Business and marketing analysts have ceased following the situation due to continued downturns in Adidas’ profits. Commerzbank (Xetra: 803200 news) ‘s Christoph Dolleschal calls Reebok a “never ending restructuring story”.1

Against these odds,
adidas size Ending Restructuring Includes interview
Reebok’s head feels Reebok will make a comeback and gain standing (currently 4th in place to Puma, who is 1, Adidas, and Nike) once the economy improves.

How can Becker guarantee that Reebok will be up and running again?

As a typical first step in a restructuring, Adidas’ first steps to get Reebok back in the saddle involved investing heavily in its products and by increasing product management, design and development, and adopting cost saving measures.

To save costs, the company recently integrated central Adidas and Reebok functions into “joint operating models” in Asia, Europe and Latin America. As a consequence, several hundred jobs were slashed in sales, service and other areas. At Reebok, 300 people had to leave this year, reducing its workforce to 8,000.

Becker envisions a similar structure in the near future for North America, where Adidas’ base is in Portland and Reebok’s in Boston; starting with the “mother” market, in this case Europe, is a very typical restructuring strategy.1

Adidas’ goal in this plan is two fold:

This year positive effects of the new plan may not be seen but the hope is that the restructuring plan will be complete by year’s end.

A manager from a Syracuse, NY athletic footwear store familiar with the business transaction between the two former footwear giants said that the Adidas brand has been doing poorly for a long time, but he does not attribute his loss of Adidas and Reebok sales to the economy alone.

adidas y3 trainers end shoes draw collectors and thieves

Caesar Moreno was walking home from his busboy job in Freeport, a new pair of $150 Air Jordans on his feet, when three robbers jumped out of a nearby car.

“Give me the Jordans,” one of the men said, according to a police report of the August 2014 incident. Moreno handed over the iconic red and black sneakers; his prized possession, gone in an instant.

“People want the nicest shoes, the newest shoes, even if that means robbing you for them,” said Moreno, 19, of Freeport, a self described “sneakerhead” who continues to collect high priced Nike models despite the robbery. “If they can’t afford them, they’ll grab them. That’s kind of the dark side of sneaker culture.”

At least 356 pairs of high end athletic shoes like those worn by Moreno have been reported stolen over the past three years in Nassau, Suffolk and New York City, records show a 67 percent increase from the previous three year period, when at least 213 pairs of high end sneakers were reported stolen across the region.

A little less than half of the 356 pairs of shoes were reported stolen on Long Island, according to records, with the rest reported in New York City.

To calculate the number of stolen high end sneakers across the region, Newsday reviewed hundreds of court records and police reports mentioning stolen sneakers valued at $100 or more.

High end sneakers have long held cultural cache among teens and 20 somethings in large cities and suburbs, with the newest, most expensive models often worn by star athletes among the most popular.

“These high end sneakers, such as Adidas and Nike, are in great demand and are attractive to the younger generation, due to their being a status symbol,” said Det. Lt. Richard LeBrun of the Nassau County Police Department. “It also becomes your basic theory of supply and demand.”

One reason for the apparent recent surge in athletic shoe thefts: New, limited edition models from companies such as Nike are hitting store shelves every week, experts say, causing demand to increase and, because of their rarity, increasing sneakers’ values exponentially when purchasers attempt to resell them.

Nike has released dozens of Air Jordan models, along with other athlete endorsed sneakers. Companies such as Adidas and Under Armour have followed with their own high end models.

The priciest sneakers generally sell from $100 to $300 in stores but can skyrocket in value their prices sometimes quadrupling on the streets, sneaker collectors and salespeople said.

Lines at shoe stores on Long Island and in New York City sometimes grow into the hundreds when limited edition models go on sale. Demand is so high that for some sneaker releases Nike has developed an online raffle system in which a consumer would sign up online and, if selected, the company would send that buyer instructions on where to purchase the shoes.

“It’s insane, the passion and pride that goes into this hobby,” said Connor Realmuto,
adidas germany end shoes draw collectors and thieves
a sneaker collector and salesman at Sneaker Aquarium in Riverhead, one of Long Island’s largest sneaker shops. and wait five hours for a shoe. There’s such a craze for the shoes . . . it’s definitely getting bigger” as a hobby.

Like dozens of other shoe stores across the region, Sneaker Aquarium has been the victim of theft. A man purchased more than $1,000 in sneakers with a stolen credit card there in May 2014, records show.

Jamie Brewer, an online sneaker seller from Manhattan who ships several dozen $100 pairs a year to Long Island, said he’s hearing from customers about more shoe thefts than at any time since the mid 1980s, when Air Jordans first went on sale.

“It’s bad . . . because there are so many hot shoes right now,” Brewer said. “People are always going to be looking to steal them, so long as they maintain their value in the market and in the culture. But right now . . . it’s happening more.”

Another private sneaker seller and collector, Anthony Dalio of Brooklyn, said he’s had more than a dozen pairs stolen in the 20 years he’s been collecting.

“People broke into my apartment, my car, wherever the shoes were at,” Dalio said. “They have a lot of cultural value it’s not just about the dollars.”

The thefts of high end items, including sneakers, have spurred several municipalities to create public “safe spaces,” locations where buyers and sellers can complete private transactions. Suffolk police are studying the feasibility of creating such locations on county property, officials said.

“They take them right off their feet, but no one’s going to steal your sneakers if you’re in a police precinct parking lot,” said Legis. Tom Muratore (R Ronkonkoma), a former Suffolk County police officer who has introduced legislation proposing safe spots.

Sneaker sales reached a record high $34 billion in the United States last fiscal year, with Nike and its subsidiary Jordan Brand accounting for more than 90 percent of all basketball shoe sales.

Sneaker related crimes have been the subject of controversy since at least 1982, when Nike released its white Air Force 1s sneakers named for the presidential airplane and beloved by some consumers for their futuristic design.

The shoes developed a devoted following in big cities. They also became associated with inner city violence, and were “touted as the sneaker of choice for drug dealers, whose ability to wear unscuffed sneakers signified both wealth and status,” Elizabeth Semmelhack, curator of an exhibit on sneaker culture at the Brooklyn Museum, writes in her book, “Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture.”

No organization keeps nationwide statistics on sneaker related crimes, but news stories describing sneaker robberies have appeared in nearly every state in recent years, suggesting the problem persists.

On Oct. 19, a Hempstead Village police officer was injured during a high speed pursuit of a car whose occupants were believed to have stolen two pairs of Air Jordan sneakers, following a planned meeting with the shoes’ seller, officials said.

The victim had agreed to meet the suspects at a gas station in order to complete the sale. The suspects one of whom was later arrested stole the shoes instead, police said.

Moreno, the Freeport resident whose Air Jordans were stolen last year,
adidas germany end shoes draw collectors and thieves
said the prospect of being victimized again doesn’t worry him.

think this is one of the greatest advances in over 150 years of Maya archaeology, said Stephen Houston, Professor of Archaeology and Anthropology at Brown University.

Mr Houston told the BBC that after decades of work in the archaeological field, he found the magnitude of the recent survey He added, know it sounds hyperbolic but when I saw the [Lidar] imagery, it did bring tears to my eyes.

Spanning an incredible 347 kilometres (216 miles) of subterranean caverns, this branching, sunken labyrinth isn just a natural spectacle it also an important archaeological find that could reveal lost secrets of the ancient Maya civilisation. He and 64 other young Germans had done well in a government run competition designed to encourage students to pursue scientific research.

In Horn’s case, it worked. Last summer, as a 22 year old Google cybersecurity researcher, he was first to report the biggest chip vulnerabilities ever discovered. The industry is still reeling from his findings, and processors will be designed differently from now on. That’s made him a reluctant celebrity, evidenced by the rousing reception and eager questions he received at an industry conference in Zurich last week.

Interviews with Horn and people who know him show how a combination of dogged determination and a powerful mind helped him stumble upon features and flaws that have been around for over a decade but had gone undetected, leaving most personal computers, internet servers and smartphones exposed to potential hacking.

Other researchers who found the same security holes months after Horn are amazed he worked alone. were several teams, and we had clues where to start. He was working from scratch, said Daniel Gruss, part of a team at Graz University of Technology in Austria that later uncovered what are now known as Meltdown and Spectre.

Horn wasn’t looking to discover a major vulnerability in the world’s computer chips when, in late April, he began reading Intel Corp. processor manuals that are thousands of pages long. He said he simply wanted to make sure the computer hardware could handle a particularly intensive bit of number crunching code he’d created.

But Zurich based Horn works at Project Zero, an elite unit ofAlphabet Inc.’s Google, made up of cybersleuths who hunt for day vulnerabilities, unintended design flaws that can be exploited by hackers to break into computer systems.

So he started looking closely at how chips handle speculative execution a speed enhancing technique where the processor tries to guess what part of code it will be required to execute next and starts performing those steps ahead of time and fetching the required data. Horn said the manuals stated that if the processor guessed wrong, the data from those misguided forays would still be stored in the chip’s memory. Horn realized that, once there, the information might be exposed by a clever hacker.

this point, I realized that the code pattern we were working on might potentially leak secret data, Horn said in emailed responses to Bloomberg questions. then realized that this could at least in theory affect more than just the code snippet we were working on. started what he called a process of further investigation that led to the vulnerabilities. Horn said he was aware of other research, including from Gruss and the team at Graz, on how tiny differences in the time it takes a processor to retrieve information could let attackers learn where information is stored.

Horn discussed this with another young researcher at Google in Zurich, Felix Wilhelm, who pointed Horn to similar research he and others had done. This led Horn to what he called big aha moment. The techniques Wilhelm and others were testing could be to force the processor to run new speculative executions that it wouldn’t ordinarily try.

Grey hats were always a valuable part of the hacker community. They may sometimes cross ethical lines, but unlike black hats they’re in it to learn, not to make money. A black hat might intend to steal credit cards and resell them online. A grey hat is just interested in smart new ways to gain network access.

stella mccartney adidas shoes end golf shoes worn by Payne Stewart and other pro golfers

TAMPA Behind an easy demeanor, Don Warner possessed the keen instincts of a marketer.

He chose to market golf shoes starting in the early 1980s, a time when golfers often walked the greens in relatively unimaginative turf grippers. Warner, a career salesman, offered an alternative: lighter, high end Italian shoes that felt broken in right out of the box.

His exotic line featured shoes made of ostrich, python, eel and elephant skin. Most ranged from $200 to $500, but you could order an all alligator model for $1,100.

Mr. Warner, who succeeded in marketing and designing what he called the “Rolls Royce of golf shoes,” died in a Pittsburgh hospital Nov. 27 of heart disease. He was 82.

Among the biggest fans of the shoes was Calvin Peete, now 69 and living in Jacksonville. “They were really sharp,” Peete said. “They didn’t look like your typical golf shoe. They were stylish and very comfortable.”

Mr. Warner started Fore Ltd. out of a guesthouse in South Tampa. He hobnobbed at the Bob Hope Classic and other tournaments, looking for role models to display his product.

He chose Payne Stewart, a rising talent known as much for his knickers, ivy caps and general sense of golf fashion as his stellar game.

“He originally approached him to wear his shoes because Payne was such a snappy dresser,” said Sally Warner, 69, his wife. “He wore the knickers,

which would certainly show off Don’s shoes.”

Because Stewart had a tendency to drag a toe on his golf swing, Mr. Warner designed a feature found on many of his shoes a brass toe plate engraved with an emblem of crossed golf clubs.

“He had an eye for a good looking shoe of quality,” said Hal Sutton, 54, who favored Mr. Warner’s saddle shoes.

Mr. Warner was born in 1930 into a small Jewish family in Philadelphia. He worked for a men’s clothing store, was married and divorced. In 1972 he married Sally Mack, a woman he had met in a restaurant.

She found him talkative and charming, “a born salesman.”

The family moved to Tampa, where Mr. Warner sold discount shoes for his father in law’s company.

Doing the work gave him an idea.

“He thought there was a niche for almost a designer golf shoe, very expensive but very well made,” his wife said.

He visited the Bob Hope Classic and other major tournaments marketing footwear to go along with monogrammed shirts and alpaca sweaters.

He played golf with actors Robert Wagner and Sylvester Stallone and singer Vic Damone, who also admired the shoes. He gave them shoes and encouraged them to tell their friends. Orders took six weeks to return from Italy.

“The thing is, I looked good in them,” said Peete, adding that he was voted “best dressed golfer” in the mid 1980s by caddies.

Peete said he also considered Mr. Warner a good friend. Mr. Warner was close to Stewart as well and took the golfer’s death in a 1999 plane crash hard.

Mr. Warner sold the company about a dozen years ago. He played more golf, sinking his first hole in one while recovering from double hip replacement surgery. He had gone to Pittsburgh recently for treatment of a heart condition.

While there, a nurse told Sally Warner her husband was “very charismatic.”

“I was so pleased she could see that,” she said, “even when he was ill and quiet.”

His legacy has all but disappeared as the popularity of hybrid golf shoes by Adidas or Nike that can be worn off the course increases.

“We’ve gotten away from his style of shoe today in the world of golf,” Sutton said. “I wish they had more of that back.”

At least one place still affords a glimpse into the recent past,

when looking good meant more than all purpose functionality: the World Golf Hall of Fame Museum in St. Augustine.
