  • Thorlos for (Almost) Free!

    Golf Grouch
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:04 pm
    When I was growing up, my sport du jour was tennis. I started playing sometime in elementary school and became good enough to play on the high school tennis team. I still play to this day, albeit much less frequently. During most of this time, I've heard about the comfort wonders of Thorlo socks from countless tennis players. However, I never tried Thorlos because of sticker shock. I had become accustomed to buying the generic bulk pack white athletic socks at Foot Locker that averaged $1 per sock. So whenever I considered Thorlos, I asked myself, "can these socks be worth 10x the cost of…
  • Think Hockey When Playing Golf

    Golf Grouch
    23 Jun 2014 | 8:04 am
    Watching my LA Kings' amazing march to the Stanley Cup this year was a revelation to me. Not about hockey nor the will of champions, but about the golf swing. I noticed that the hockey slap shot is quite similar to a full golf swing. The key is that a properly executed slapshot requires that the hands are slightly ahead of the puck at impact. This is the same principle that applies to the golf swing. It's no wonder that so many hockey players are great golfers, including Happy Gilmore!They are so similar that I find it helpful to visualize a slap shot when I setup and swing a golf club. I…
  • Golf Tips - The Proper Golf Grip II

    Golf Grouch
    31 May 2014 | 4:08 pm
    The golf swing is such a finicky thing. One day you may be striping the ball as pure as Adam Scott and the very next day you may be $hanking it like a rank beginner. WTF? Since the golf swing requires so much precision, the reason is often a breakdown of swing fundamentals. Even an infinitesimally small change can throw a monkey wrench into a golfer's swing. The fact that these changes are frequently unnoticed by the afflicted golfer in turn leads to disbelief and frustration.I think that the most important, but also the most overlooked fundamental is the grip. I've already posted Butch…

    Mike

      Once you hit the 30 year-old mark, inevitably you’re going to start experiencing some back pain. There are just a few parts of our bodies that weren’t built properly, and the back certainly falls in that category. Back pain doesn’t need to be the downfall of your handicap, though. There’s no need to ‘Pull a Tiger‘ and bow out of the round. As long as you prepare properly and manage your back pain according to this advice, you shouldn’t even have to shed a stroke off your round. 1.

    25 Mar 2015 | 6:55 pm
    Aussie golfer Wade Ormsby should feel perfectly at home playing in the backyard of the King of Morocco’s palace this week. WET weather wiped out the European Tour event in Madeira last week but hopefully things will be a little sunnier this week in Morocco. The tour arrives at the Golf Du Palais Royal in Agadir for the Trophee Hassan 11. The venue is a links-style Robert Trent Jones Sr-designed course in a stunning location. It runs along the Atlantic Ocean and is basically in the back yard of the home of the host, the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI. Aussies love a backyard game of anything,…
  • Matt Jones third at Arnie’s place as Every takes back to back title

    22 Mar 2015 | 11:22 pm
    MATT JONES stormed home at the 2015 Arnold Palmer Invitational to finish just two strokes behind back to back winner Matt Every on Sunday. Jones started the final round at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando three strokes behind overnight leader Henrik Stenson. After treading water on the opening nine, the 34 year old Sydney golfer birdied 12 and then had three straight from 15, just as those in front of him were stalling. In the end Every (66) birdied the last to made it to the clubhouse at 19-under with Stenson (70) falling one short and Jones (68) on 17-under. On the back nine Jones…
  • Head west, middle aged man! – to some great new Legends Tour Pro-Ams

    Larry Canning

    Larry Canning is looking forward to heading out to a new Australian PGA Legends Tour Pro-Am circuit in south western NSW. He’s urging amateur golfers to join in for what should be a brilliant week. The 3rd Hole at Cootamundra Country Club I USED used to love packing the car with my clubs, luggage and hopefully enough humility to fit in with the locals, so I could head out west to the NSW Country Pro-Am circuit. The courses are always way better than most people think and the drive really interesting and different. But it’s the people who make it such a great trip … they are the…

    2015 Arnold Palmer Invitational Preview: Leaderboard BUBBA WATSON was a late withdrawal but the rest of the world’s top five ranked golfers line up for the 2015 Arnold Palmer Invitational this week and that includes Aussies Adam Scott and Jason Day. World No.1 Rory McIlroy leads the troupe and despite a hiccup in missing the cut at the Honda Classic recently will no doubt be looking to hone his game three weeks out from the Masters. McIlroy is playing Palmer’s event for the first time and it will also be his final competitive outing before attempting a career Grand Slam at the Masters in…

  • Shoulder Motion In Golf Swing

    Mike
    15 Mar 2015 | 9:29 am
    What I want to talk about with you today is the motion of your shoulders and your swing. And remember, all my videos are all about feel, it’s not really instruction, it’s how you should feel through your golf swing. And the response I’ve gotten from my subscribers is pretty amazing, really. They’ve never really been described the feel of anything. And I’m a feel golfer so hopeful these videos will help you. So what I want you to think about when you’re in your golf posture, picture you’re on a rotisserie. So you’ve got a rod going through the…

    Hi, I’m Mike Pedersen with PerformBetterGolf.com. I want to talk about using an exercise ball, a stability ball to play better golf. Every golf player in the world should have a stability ball. It’s very inexpensive and the benefit to your golf swing and your golf game is immense. There’s so many simple, easy and affective things you can do with an exercise ball for your golf swing that I want to show you a couple of quick ones right now.

    If you have followed any of my golf improvement information, you know I am a strong advocate of improving your body to play better golf. Well, it seems we have a worse problem and it is something that the majority of us (myself included) do most of the day (and night). Sitting! I’m doing it right now as I’m typing this article up for you. Unfortunately, this is wreaking havoc on our backs, necks, overall health, and yes…our golf swings! As I’m sitting here I am consciously sitting up straighter and making sure my neck is elongated and not jutted forward like most…
  • Does Your Backswing Look Like Tony’s?

    Mike
    18 Jan 2015 | 11:49 am
    Does your backswing look like this? A friend of mine was bingeing on the Soprano’s and came across a clip of James Gandolfini hitting a golf ball. Season 5, Episode 9 – Unidentified Black Males at the 6:34 point in the show. It reminded me of all the golfers struggling to make a complete backswing (full turn). The end result of his shot obviously did not look good, but it’s a perfect example of how a shortened and restricted backswing can affect your contact with the ball, as well as the much slower clubhead speed, resulting in a massive loss of distance. I want you to…

    In the 15 years I’ve worked exclusively with golfers, I can tell you I’ve received hundreds of emails from golfers over 50 years of age who are struggling with their weight. Does this sound like you? If so, you are not alone. Carrying extra pounds is not only bad for your golf swing, but as you are well aware, your health and longevity. I’m sure if you asked your kids (and even grand kids) if they want you around for a while, the answer would be a resounding YES! Well…that means you need to take action and shed some pounds (and more importantly keep them off) ASAP. Do…

    29 Mar 2015 | 2:44 am
    This is the 2nd of a 3 week series of posts on Women in Golf  by Jim Lee of BC Golf. Probably most women would agree that most men don’t know what turns women on. In my case its (mostly) true, but it depends if you are asking my wife. So I’m going to restrict my comments in this blog to golf – or more precisely - why women and men play golf and what they get from participating in the game. If you are going to market any product or service to people, its important to understand the reasons for purchasing the product. For most products, its pretty simple – its a cleaning product,…

    This spring a women's golf club near and dear to my heart (Golf Fore Gals) closed its doors. Sadly, like in many parts of the world, women's golf in BC is on the decline.  I have struggled to figure out how to turn this trend around and turned to a colleague of mine from British Columbia Golf to understand the facts and potential future.  This is the first of a 3 week series* on Women in Golf by Jim Lee of BC Golf.

  • Get Your Brain in Your Golf Game

    admin
    7 Feb 2015 | 9:47 am
    Golf is like any other sport in that mental strength is essential for success. Indeed, sometimes it is all that matters when it comes to winning or losing. If you learn to develop the correct mentality and to turn your weaknesses into strengths, you can increase your chances of winning. So think of mental toughness as a skill that you need to work on and develop, and then use it to your advantage when you are under pressure. Here are some ways to get your brain in the game. Be Prepared If you know you are as prepared as you can be, this will give you confidence when you are in action. One of…

    I have often thought that you can tell more about a person by what they read, watch, listen to and do for fun than what they say about themselves.  It's why I ask people I meet for the first time what their favorite books/movies/past times/music are.   If  you were to ask me that question, here's what I'd say... Favorite song: Stairway to Heaven Favorite movie: Shawshank Dedemption Favorite book: The Day After Tomorrow by Allan Folsom Favorite sport: Do you really have to ask? ;) Given my passion for golf, I also have a favorite golf movie (No, it's not Caddyshack ;)) and a few golf…

Comforting news, when you are a young apprentice feeling blessed that you are actually making a living at something you love.

  • Is Tiger Toast?

    golfpoet
    1 Mar 2015 | 11:56 am
      Since Tiger Woods has retreated from PGA Tour events, golf “scholars,” have offered Tiger a wide array of “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts” to bring him back to championship form. Some have suggested that Tiger is finished as a front runner. As I have remarked in other Posts, maybe 100 years ago, situations like Tiger’s would be commented on not only in prose, but also in poetry. Since I am currently the (self-appointed) resident golf poet, here is my contribution regarding Tiger’s troubles: Tiger Should or Shouldn’t The ailing failing…

    18 Feb 2015 | 12:45 pm
    In my last Post (just below) I offered readers like you the chance to experience the fun of reading a poem (in this case a golf poem) out loud. To begin, I suggested reading the first stanza of a classic golf poem called “The Lay for the Troubled Golfer” by Edgar A. Guest. I included a recording of my reading of the stanza, which offered the opportunity to read the stanza along with me. Now we move on to the whole poem.

As golfers we all know that the more confident we feel, the better we play. But what comes first? Do you have to play well to have confidence or are there ways to build confidence no matter how well you’ve been playing recently? In this article, I’m going to show you my top 10 ways to build “inner confidence” (confidence that comes from within) to get you feeling as confident as possible on…
  • Have You Tried The Tour Player Putting Routine?

    David MacKenzie
    24 Feb 2015 | 5:34 am
    Next time you watch the PGA Tour on the TV, be sure to watch what a Tour player does before, during and after each putt. They’ll follow a very deliberate sequence. Putting is perhaps the time in golf that requires the most mental and emotional control, because you’re that much closer to the score that goes down on the card. The key (as with all my coaching), is to focus on “the process” and not the outcome. Your putting routine Your putting routine doesn’t have to follow this exactly (we all have our own individual style), but I’ve outlined the basic steps that a…

    When I get with a new student, one of the first questions I ask is “How do you practice?” The response is fairly similar and it might not be too far off how you currently practice – hitting balls at the range, a few chips and putts, without any REAL purpose. The aim of this article is to at least get you thinking about how you use your valuable practice time and whether it’s actually taking you closer to scoring lower on the golf course. I’ve also got some great practice ideas that have worked very effectively for my students (all levels of player). Why do we practice golf?

    Rob Harris
    25 Mar 2015 | 5:08 pm
    By: Rob Harris PGA Tour caddie Duane Bock makes no claim that he belongs on the cover of GQ. At the same time, he believes the Tour unfairly has targeted the shorts he was wearing at Bay Hill last weekend–and, as he claims, for the previous fourteen tournaments. According to Bock, the Tour’s complaint about their color sounds mysteriously suspect  since he is one of the 167 caddies who are plaintiff’s in the recently filed lawsuit against the Tour. You decide. The pants-that-have-grabbed-so-much-attention can be seen here.

Residents have sued the developer. The developer has sued the residents. Residents have sued the village. Now, the village is suing itself.” And why, pray tell, is the village suing itself?

    By: Rob Harris According to its website, Mount Vintage Plantation Golf Club “is a 27-hole championship golf course that has been likened to The Augusta National by Golf Magazine.” Indeed, the pictures do evoke South Carolina / Georgia pinelands. And, David Barrett’s fine book, “Making the Masters: Bobby Jones and the Birth of America’s Greatest Golf Tournament,” does describe the early financial struggles of Augusta National. However, I doubt that Mount Vintage Plantation’s website was referencing its own economic struggles as an Augusta National…

A year ago, he entered the final round trailing by four strokes and ended up hoisting the trophy when it was all said and done. This year, he overcame a three-shot deficit, posting a six-under 66 to successfully defend his title and beating 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson by one stroke. Every came up in the clutch on the difficult par-4 18th. Faced with a downhill 17-footer for birdie to take the lead, he made it for what turned out to be for the win. He even had some help…

Stenson, along with his playing partner Morgan Hoffmann, were playing in the final group and put on the clock for most of the day at Bay Hill, starting on no. 6.

Daniel Berger made the first one in the tournament history in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the par-5 6th. On Sunday, Zach Johnson followed suit and holed out from the fairway with a five-iron from 206 yards on the par-5 16th. “I was in between a 4-iron and 5-iron,” said Johnson after he posted a final round six-under 66. “It’s warm. I’m going to rip a 5-iron. I tugged it a good five yards from where I wanted to hit it.

    While many of the mainstay golf companies seem to be busy reworking old designs under new marketing facades, Nike seems to be bucking the trend and actually innovating when it comes to their club designs. Nike has consistently made more strides in quality than any other mainstream golf company over the past few years. This evolution has finally paid off in the their new Vapor series. To be fair – I thought the same thing last year with the 2014 version of the Nike VR Pro Combos. I played the VR Combos for the majority of the year last year and loved every second of them.

The Players Series 002 is very similar to the Players Series 001 with a few welcome design changes. The most noticeable change is the color of the bag. While the 001 was pure black, the 002 is dominantly white with some black color blocking and accents…

  • Tales From The Fairways

    27 Mar 2015 | 11:47 pm
    The sport of golf is packed with folklore: tales of incredible feats or of dire misfortunes. In clubhouses across the country you’ll hear peels of laughter or gasps of amazement as golfing stories are retold for the umpteenth time over a couple of post-round libations. There may be some truth to these wildly spun yarns that have long since been embellished upon, or perhaps they’re just myths of the fairways. We have picked three of the best clubhouse tales, so you decide, fact or fiction? Bob Taylor and the lucky 16th Competing in the 1974 Eastern Counties Foursomes at Hunstanton Golf…

It can be a cruel, cruel game. The post Closest Hole In One Ever – Golf Can Be A Cruel Game appeared first on Golf and Course.

    What’s your idea of a good weekend? How about being glued to your bed without being able to open your right eye? Sound like fun? That was my weekend last week as I suffered a scratched cornea on Saturday morning and didn’t recover until Monday afternoon.

  • Arnold Palmer Invitational Fantasy Preview

    18 Mar 2015 | 3:41 pm
    Last week my preview was as minimal as possible. I was in Cabo honeymooning but I’m back now and feeling refreshed after a great week in Mexico. Oh yeah, Jordan Spieth won the Valspar, that made it an even better week. This week course is Bay Hill Club and Lodge for the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It’s a par 72 that plays over 7,400 yards, a bit lengthy. The fairways are easy to hit, while the bermudagrass greens are average in both size and speed. More tournament details can be found in the Fantasy Golfanac. One thing that jumps out to me this week is the location. Bay Hill is in…

    This is my hands on review of the Adidas Adipower Boost Golf Shoe… — Last week I was in Vail, Colorado on a ski trip and got a phone call from my girlfriend. “A package arrived for you.” I had a feeling I knew what it was, but I told her to open it and sure enough it was my brand new Adipower Adidas Boost golf shoes. “It’s a pair of Adidas golf shoes. I hate to say it, but they look really cool!” She works for Nike.. Adidas Boost Golf Looks After returning from my trip, I opened up the box and was extremely happy with what I saw. It’s been…
  • Waverley Country Club – The Best Private Golf Course in Portland?

    Sean Ogle
    10 Mar 2015 | 10:29 am
    Man, it’s been awhile since I’ve done a proper course write up – but after playing Waverley Country Club for the second time, I realized it was time to change that. For the past few months I’ve been all over the place doing work for my main business, and aside from a week at Bandon – haven’t done a whole lot of golf travel. Gonna need to make up for that later this year. So with nearly a dozen Top 100 Courses that I’ve played and still need to do a write up on, why on Earth would I be writing about a relatively little known private course in Portland, Oregon? Well, the…
  • The Mizzen + Main Henley: My New Favorite Travel Shirt

    Sean Ogle
    2 Mar 2015 | 8:01 am
    At this year’s PGA show I was kind of surprised, it wasn’t the new tech or gadgets that totally blew me away this year. Rather, it was a couple boutique, American made, lines of mens clothing: Holderness & Bourne and Mizzen + Main. I wrote about Holderness & Bourne’s beautiful Byers duffel bag a couple months ago, but their new shirts may even top that. However, that’s not the point of this article. As I was walking the floor I stumbled across a company I’d never heard of before called Mizzen + Main.  As I was perusing their collection of garments there was one piece in…
  • Kentwool Socks Review: Why I Never Want to Take Them Off My Feet

    Sean Ogle
    11 Feb 2015 | 9:34 am
    I’ve never given my socks much thought. I’ve always worn whatever was cheap and clean, and that’s about as far as I’ve gone with it. The idea of spending $20+ for one pair of socks seems preposterous to me. Until I put on a pair of Kentwood socks. To date I’ve now worn three different styles of them. Kentwool Graduated Compression Socks The first was the KW Pro Light ($20.95). They were no show socks that are the thinnest in the Kentwood lineup.  The socks were fantastic, but honestly I didn’t notice any considerable difference between these and any other pair of socks I’ve…
  • How I Broke 80 at Bandon Dunes in the Coolest Way Possible

    Sean Ogle
    13 Jan 2015 | 12:09 pm
    Before I go too far into this story, there’s one thing you have to understand. The last time I went down to Bandon Dunes was in February of 2014. This is what ensued: So my friends thought I was a little crazy when I scheduled another winter trip to Bandon. This time it was for 5 days in early January. What many people who aren’t from Oregon don’t understand is it can be 65 degrees and sunny at Bandon in January just as easily as it can be 40 or rainy in July. It’s just the way the Oregon coast works. I persuaded my friend, and typical golf travel companion Dan to…

  • Masters preview: McIlroy heads ante-post market

    Bradley Gibbs
    20 Mar 2015 | 10:54 am
    As the first major of the season edges closer, The Back Nine takes a look at the market leader in the ante-post betting market. Rory McIlroy (best price 11/2) It will come as no surprise that at the the head of the betting lies current world number one and four time major winner, Rory McIlroy. At just 25, Rory McIlroy has already shown the golfing world he’s got all the qualities of a potential great, and having already captured three of the four majors titles it would appear that he is well on his way to earning that status. The question is however, can McIlroy hit the levels reached…
  • Johnson snatches glory at Doral

    Bradley Gibbs
    9 Mar 2015 | 9:26 am
    Dustin Johnson displayed nerves of steel down the back nine to claim victory in the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral, his first win of the season. Playing for only the fifth time since returning to action following a six month break, Johnson shot a composed 69 (three under) on the final day, securing a one shot victory over JB holmes with a tournament score of nine under par. As the final day got under way, it was fellow American Bubba Watson who made the early move, racing into the lead following three birdies from the first four holes. Watson then added another at the seventh, and it…

    Tiger Woods faced another set-back, as the former world No.1 ‘s preparations for this season’s Masters were tarnished further by withdrawal from next week’s Honda Classic. Having not played since pulling out of the Farmer’s insurance open earlier in February due to a back injury, Woods has revealed that he will not take his place on the tee again until he is “tournament-ready”. The last couple of season’s have been – to say the least – frustrating ones for the 14-time major winner, who now finds himself outside the world’s top 50…

    Brandt Snedeker ended an 18 month baron run on the PGA Tour by securing victory in AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. The American, who also lifted the trophy two seasons ago, had been going through a dry spell on the tour, and was without a win since capturing the same event back in October 2013. Although the win wasn’t perhaps the most dazzling we’ve ever seen, Snedeker – with a workmanlike performance – was able to emerge from a crowded leaderboard on Sunday, carding an impressive final round 67 to finish the tournament 22 under par – three shots in front…

    This week, the world of golf will be in mourning after the announcement was made that former major winner – Billy Casper has died aged 83. One of the most prolific winners in PGA history, Casper – also considered one of the games finest with the putter – was able to record a massive 51 victories on Tour. An impressive total which see’s the American lie seventh in the PGA’s all-time victory list.

  • Tip of the Day

    kynan.holt@gmail.com
    21 Mar 2015 | 6:57 pm
    Putting drill for a better roll: This drill can be used if you are struggling to roll the ball consistently off the putter face and all you need is a tee. Simply push the tee into the ground almost all the way so that just the top is showing. Then place the ball infront of it and make a stroke. Having the tee there will help you hit the ball “on the up” which will cause the ball to roll with topspin. If you can do this consistently, you will be able to hole more putts due to the smooth roll that you have put on the ball. The post Tip of the Day appeared first on Golf Talk.
  • Tiger’s ChYIPS

    After watching the Golf Show on FoxSports last night, I saw the segment they had on Tiger Woods’ return to golf for the 2015 season. They highlighted his short game problems and it appears to me that Tiger has the chipping yips. They showed a number of his chips throughout his two rounds and he was blading chips through the green as well as flubbing them from the rough and fairway. The commentators outlined the fact that he was playing bump and run shots instead of taking lofted clubs which according to them is a sign of the yips as he was “scared” to take lofted clubs due…

    Stop topping tee-shots: This was one of the first things I was ever taught when I first started playing the game of golf and was having trouble getting the ball airborne because I kept topping it. So anyway, after countless embarrassing tee shots and golf balls with headaches, one of the mentor’s gave me this tip. He told me to tee the ball up so the logo is facing toward the sky and to focus on nothing except that logo until the ball had been hit. I found that as soon as I did this, I stopped topping the ball and started hitting some long and straight shots off the tee! The post Golf…

    Alignment: This tip is one I learnt while watching Butch Harmon’s TV show. Most golfers these days carry a set of 2 alignment sticks, however, if you don’t have these, an old shaft of another club do the same thing. Anyways, most people like to use these sticks to help them with their alignment and the way many people do this is by laying one of their sticks on the ground in front of their toes. But as pointed out by Butch, if person has a wide stance where their toes are pointed outward, laying the stick down there would alter the line of stick, therefore making it inaccurate as…
  • Francesco Molinari’s Hole in One!

    How awesome is this! Francesco’s ace at the 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale. Imagine how loud the roar would have been. A bit unusual to see Francesco getting excited but I certainly don’t blame him after that effort. I also like the tradition of throwing beer onto the hole afterwards, again, a little out of the ordinary but I suppose everything about this “stadium hole” is a little wierd.
