World Series of Golf on WGN America Cable Network

January with Terry Leiweke in Las Vegas!

World Series of Golf headed by Terry Leiweke announced that their tournament will be televised on The WGN America Cable Network to be aired in the middle of May in 13 one-hour episodes.

I will be one of four women competeing against a field of 125 players in a Texas Hold 'em. Players can go all-in after their tee shot, or fold and move on to the next hole if they hit a lousy shot. I am really looking forward to the folding aspect of this tournament.

The player with the fewest strokes each hole wins the pot for that hole. Automatic bets, or antes, increase every three holes, driving up betting and the pots. Stay tuned and I'll keep you posted on this exciting adventure into the world of golf and gambling!

Tim Gallwey Shares The Inner Game of Golf with January Jones

Author and golfer, January Jones will be interviewing Tim Gallwey, author of The Inner Game of Golf, this week on her radio show Whine Time with January Jones on VoiceAmerica.com. Ms. Jones will be getting advice from Tim helping her to get ready for The World Series of Golf in Las Vegas on May 11- 14th.

To quote January, “ It’s now or never. It's crunch time and I need not only the Inner but the Outer Game of Golf.”

The tournament will be played with a poker and golf format sponsored by FullTiltPoker.net January will be 1 of 4 women competing against men in a field of 125 with 5 flights. January is a senior advocate representing all of the "chronologically challenged competitors" in the golf world. This event is a TV reality golf competition that will be played at The Paiute Resort in Las Vegas on May 12-13th to be televised as a 13 week reality golf series on the WGN Cable Channel.

Ms. Jones will be playing with the Taylor Made–adidas Golf 2009 golf clubs and clothes that have graciously been supplied for her with her signature colors of red, yellow and black. These are the colors on the cover of her recent book, Thou Shalt Not Whine…The Eleventh Commandment published by Beaufort Books.

To quote January, "Every woman alive who plays golf knows, it's not about how you play but how you look!" This is a topic that will be thoroughly discussed when her talk radio show "Whine Time with January Jones" launches live on www.VoiceAmerica.com every Thursday at 9:00 am PT.

January is the national spokesperson for Yar Golf who have customized a special version of their revolutionary GX1 putter with her red and yellow colors. She is being sponsored by JH Gloves who have designed custom golf gloves for the tournament in red, yellow and black keeping with January's color theme. Ms. Jones will be wearing Tifosi sun glasses and playing with Precept Golf balls.

Why Play Golf with Husbands?

Top 15 Reasons To Play Golf with Husbands

What every wife needs to know!

1. Spend more time together.
2. Makes your marriage better.
3. Go on great vacations
4. Buy new golf clothes & shoes.
5. Get rid of guilt factor.
6. Husband is happier.
7. Share an addiction together.
8. Save $on gambling.
9. Share gossip & dirt.
10. Half of $ spent is on you.
11. Be tired together.
12. Be a good sport & one of the boys.
13. Practice together.
14. Eat out more together.
15. Good therapy with less frustration.

#12. You'll be one of the boys..the one and only!

Once you start golfing together, you will truly become his best
friend and not just in bed. Being one of the boys is a perk
that most women don't aspire to or appreciate.

The reality is that any sport connection a wife can make with
her husband is an asset to their relationship. Playing together
will translate into staying together.

Even if it is just watching from the gallery when he is playing
in the club championship or you are playing in The World Series
of Golf on CBS Sports, we all love having our number one fan
cheering us on.

Eventually you will share all sorts of golfing triumphs and trials
with each other. At some point, you will even be able to ask him
how he did on hole #7 and actually know where it is. The ultimate
question to ask him to seal the deal is. "What club did he use?"

Now you will not only be a sex object but you will be his kindred
spiritual and sporting mate forever.

The Inner Game of Golf with Tim Gallwey


Tim Gallwey,
author of The Inner Game of Golf

....and January
playing the inner and outer game at World Series of Golf practice round in Las Vegas.


I'm so pleased to have Tim Gallwey as my guest tomorrow on "Whine Time with January Jones" at 9 am PT. Like so many others, I remember Tim from his first book, the Inner Game of Tennis. Actually it was more like "The Bible" for my generation of tennis players.

So guess what happened? Now we are all trying to master the game of golf and Tim has come to our rescue again with The Inner Game of Golf. It seems that you really can teach old dogs some new tricks.

I read Tim's book on the way over to Vegas for our World Series of Golf practice round. Like all true addicts, I couldn't put it down and devoured every page and every little tip or thought that Tim shared with us other addicts. Now I trying to digest the feast that The Inner Game of Golf serves up or rather I should say tees up.

As for my practice round at Paiute in Vegas, it was a blast. I got to the 16th hole before I ran out of money. Obviously, I don't want to peak too soon and I didn't. We'll be playing for real in three weeks and in the meantime, practice makes perfect or so I am told by my husband, my new trainer.

World Series of Golf will be presenting our tournament on WGN Cable Channel as a 13 week Reality Golf TV series with 13 re-runs. So if I play my cards right and wear bright enough clothes, I hope to get some camera time and promote my book.

As for the poker part of the tournament, I played Texas hold 'Em while in Vegas and won $34. So now, I'm ready to take on the serious poker players too. I'm sure they are really worried about me. I have the perfect poker face since I smile when I win and I smile when I lose.

Today was the opening day for The Thousand Oaks Senior Softball season! I am sponsoring a team called January's Jokers comprised of some of the most enthusiastic softball players in the world.

I watched their game his morning and posed with the team managers, Lars Schalk and Leif Jonassen, along with an entire team picture. Sadly, they did not win their opener but they'll be back next week with a victory plan of attack.

Good Luck to January's Jokers and I'll keep you posted on their season!

These guys are not "Whiners"...they're "Winners" ... and I'm not joking about it!

Just returned from the Annual AATH Convention in Las Vegas and it was a HOOT! As usual, we had the best time ever and loved re-connecting with our old friends and making so many new ones. It is an affair to remember fondly due to all the caring clowns and wonderful members.

The speakers were awesome and left us with great memories and just a few tears. Even spent a little time with Frank and Barbara doing the Concert That Never Was at The Riviera Hotel.

AATH is so special because it makes everyone feel good about themselves and want to try harder to help others with hope and humor throughout the year. I have invited several of the speakers to do interviews on my radio show this year so you'll be meeting some fabulous friends of mine in 2009! I can't wait to share them with all of you.
