Ball position

Ball position is generally treated as a final thought amongst golfers. Golfers tend to stick to what they were taught in the beginning, rather than looking at how ball position can affect the flight, shape and distance of their shots.   A lot of golfers who took lessons when the began, will continue to play the ball from the same position.   Driver off the left heel, and gradually move further back as the clubs get shorter. This is something that I do not believe Read More...

Putting

Putting is often referred to as the game within a game, and this could be considered true. There are very few similarities to the rest of the shots played, with the exception that the same keys to success exist.   These keys are vital ingredients for building a consistent and functional putting stroke that will knock shots of your rounds.   Putting differs from the rest of the game because you rely so heavily on it to make a score. We all notice and Read More...

Climate

In all sports the climate can affect the way games are played. But unlike most sports that are affected by the weather, golf is possibly the most affected, due to it being a slower smoother sport where the player is more open to the elements.

About Me

I am a family person that has always enjoyed helping those around me to sort out their problems, or listened when someone needs to get something of their chest. This quality probably has something to do with my parents; there was nothing they wouldn’t do for people. I remember my dad, driving all night just to pick up a neighbor that was stranded at an airport some 6 hours away. This neighbor at the time wasn’t even a close Read More...

Strategy

Your strategy on the golf course can be the difference between a mediocre, good or great round. Strategy or course management is a skill that has to be learnt and to do this one must get playing experience. This experience must also be gained through playing with better players. This can for some players be intimidating, and perhaps some will be embarrassed to play with golfers that seemingly do not make mistakes, are noticeably angry when they hit a Read More...

Routine

One thing that separates a good golfer from an inconsistent performer is their routine. A routine is key for being able to maintain your cool when a pressure situation arises.

All of the above, and more, situations can present a golfer with a challenge that seems out of Read More...

More golfing pet peeves

I have to admit I have a few pet peeves when I am on the driving range or golf course. And the biggest has to be the golfer that hits a bad shot and immediately blames themselves for their error. That error will take on one of two forms; 1 – “Why did I lift my head again?” 2 – “Keep your head down” Both of these phrases are wrong and create more problems for the golfer when they attempt to correct Read More...
