Top 10 Luxury Hotel Suites & Villas on Las Vegas Strip : 1. Wynn Las Vegas

It’s officially known as Las Vegas Boulevard, but in reality it’s a strip of glitz and glam of unrivalled proportions. To say it’s over the top might be an understatement. The Strip is the main drag of gambling U.S.A. and home to most of the top Hotels, casinos and nightclubs Las Vegas style! A stroll down the Strip at night is a blaze of blinking lights and a sea of humanity making its way to that winning slot machine. Night time is also the most comfortable time of day to be outdoors in the Las Vegas heat zone, so take your stroll under the stars and bask in the glow.

What really took me aback about Las Vegas is that it’s a lot more than casinomania.  The town most of the time buzzes with high-tech conventioneers (Couture show and JCK presented in this issue), weekending couples and families out for a little fun in the desert sun, not to mention people searching for pleasure in the capital of sin. Great! the next question arises; where to stay?

‘‘F’’” Luxury World – Luxury Travel Services selects for you the top 10 Hotel Suites & Villas for an unforgettable Las Vegas trip. Enjoy !

Top-10 Best Greek Hotel Suites & Villas to Stay this Summer

So, you decide to visit Greece this summer. Excellent! And of course, you wish to have some incredible vacations as always.

The best vacations are often measured not by where one wanders but by the package designed from you or your agent, the hotel facilities, the local people hospitality, the new friends you meet there and the list go on. The landscapes then act as mere vehicles for delightful moments. A place is not enough. An open mind is also required to absorb the new social, cultural and visual signals that surround a traveller. Once this is understood, then it does not hurt to be absorbed by a unique topography, an ancient landscape, to be touched by a cool meltemi breeze, or to be lost in the azure archipelagos. The cultural and historical background of Greece has sprinkled the landscapes with ruins that span six thousand years. The alternating invaders, the peaceful settlers, and the country’s position at the crossroads between east and west, have all left their mark on the Greek cultural landscape; the culture that is credited with the birth of western civilization.

$161,000 Gold Putters

by TrendHunter

ODYSSEY GOLF DIAMOND PUTTER

Golf is traditionally an expensive sport by default, but a few hundred dollars for an 18-hole round is chump change next to this Odyssey Gold Diamond Putter.

At a steep price of $161,000, this shimmering gem-encrusted piece with its 18-carat white gold club head its 240 rubies definitely isn’t your grandmothers mini-golf chipper. On top of its ruby and gold extravagance, however, the aptly named Oddssey Gold Diamond Putter also features over 368 diamonds which, for those counting, is definitely more than a paltry sum.

Needless to say, it will be interesting to see if any of the millionaires who fork out the cash to get their hands on this incredible piece of work will be inclined to use it on the green. My thinking is that it might find itself more suited to a glass display case than a golf club bag.

Solving Golf Swing Problems

 by GolfGist.com 

   
Identify the (slicing, hooking, lack of distance, etc.) problem. Verify the problem by videotaping yourself or asking a knowledgeable golfer to watch you hit a few balls. Find the cause of the problem. Start by reviewing your fundamentals of grip, stance, balance, alignment, etc. Do some diagnostic drills to help you pinpoint the cause. Plan your course of action. Commit to implementing your plan. Repetition will help you build confidence. Give it time to work, but, if it is not going well, seek additional help.

Purpose   

  1. To have a reliable system to identify your golfing problems. The first step, no matter what the problem, is always to REVIEW YOUR FUNDAMENTALS (Grip, Stance, Alignment, Swing Path, etc.) Also, the diagnostic drills can help you pinpoint your problems. You must know the problem and its cause to effectively correct it. Use a video tape recorder or a knowledgeable practice partner to help you correctly diagnose the problem.
  2. To provide the means to restore your confidence. Many problems will stem from loss of confidence. Doing repetitions of the drills will give you the needed confidence in your swing to overcome your problems. Solving problems and developing confidence takes time. Do not expect instantaneous results. After you identify the problem, find the cause and learn the cure, you will still need time and practice to integrate your new skills into your “old game”.

Do’s and Don’ts
If you cannot identify and solve your own problems to your satisfaction, seek help from your local PGA professional. They are trained to recognize and solve golfing problems.

A Fundamental Golf Pre-Round Warmup Routine

 by Golfgist  

A brisk walk to the practice range is a great way to begin your warm-up. It will raise your body temperature and loosen your joints and muscles. Finish with stretching and swing warm-ups. Hit some practice balls (not a bucketful) if you can. Start with your shot irons and then skip every other club. Finish by hitting with some short irons again, this time to build swing confidence. This is a warm-up not practice. Do not try new things, just hit some regular chip shots. Then try a few long putts, finish up by holding 5-10 short putts for confidence building.

Purpose 

  1. To prevent injury and improve performance. Warming up raises the body temperature, increases flexibility and lubricates joints. A brisk walk is a great way to start your warm up. Before a round you need to warm up, because at that point it is too late to practice.
  2. To learn socially acceptable warm-ups. Some golfers do not portray themselves as athletes so it is not cool to do athletic warm-ups in front of other golfers. The same guys that ritualize warm ups before a basketball or softball game do not condone the social acceptance of golf warm ups. Taking a few extra practice swings on the first tee is only the warming up 99 percent of golfers usually do. A good warm up session will warm up your body so you can start playing better.
  3. To groove the way you play. If you fade the ball during warm up, you will probably fade the ball all day. It is too late to try to change your swing, so plan on playing your fade. Warm up time is not the time to try to learn new skills or improve techniques. A good warm up session will warm up your body and you will start off playing better.

Do’s and Don’ts
Use the practice range to warm up if you can. Start with your wedge, hit 4-5 balls with every other club through the driver. Finish with a few solid short iron confidence buildiers. The purpose of a warm up is to allow you to play at your maximum efficiency without injury.

The Fundamental Golf Pre-Shot Routine

 by Golfgist  

Planning the shot ahead, approach from behind the ball. Pick an intermediate target. Aiming at something new a few feet away is easier and more accurate than aiming at 200 yards away. Approach the ball and take a stance about a foot back where you will make your next shot. Take a smooth practice swing. Focus all your attention on your upcoming shot. Take your final stance and start your backswing with your personal swing key. This is an example of a typical pre-shot routine. Yours may differ. It is important to develop your own routine.

  

Purpose

  1. To develop your own standard pre-shot routine. Your routine doesn’t have to be exactly like the one shown but it should be consistent. It is designed to make sure you have picked your intermediate target, decided on your landing area, visualized the ball’s flight, and you are fully concentrating on your shot.
  2. To increase your concentration. Your pre-shot routine should turn on your own concentration. Up until that point you can be a laughing and joking, but when you start your routine you shift into your concentration mode. If someone or something disrupts your routine – Stop – back off and start your routine.
  3. To start your swing smoothly. The pre-shot routine concludes with you activating your swing keys (thoughts) used to begin your swing. For example, if the key your use to start the backswing is “low and slow”, this will actually be the final component of your routine. The more you practice this on the range, the more it will become part of your routine.

Do’s and Don’ts
Practice your pre-shot routine on the range. It is difficult to learn on the course, even during the practice rounds.
