    3 Jul 2015 | 11:42 am
    The Kings are trying to add some much needed shooting. The Sacramento Kings have agreed to terms on a three-year, $19 million contract with sharpshooter Marco Belinelli, reports Ramona Shelburne. After clearing up cap space to sign Wesley Matthews, the Kings settled for another shooter to add to a roster in desperate need of it. The former Spur should be a good addition to one of the worst benches in the league. Belinelli shot 37 percent from outside last season and 43 percent the year before, which immediately makes him the best marksman on the Kings' roster. The 28-year-old Belinelli…

And while his extraordinary skills on fairways and greens have many fans calling Spieth "the future of American golf", his gracious ways, quiet confidence and family closeness have the newly-minted US Open Champion is being tweeted about…

    TIGER WOODS IS BACK IN ACTION this week at the Greenbrier Classic in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Tiger will play his first two rounds alongside pal Steve Stricker and David Lingmerth, winner of the Memorial about a month ago. Judging from the 33-second Golf Channel clip (above) that summarizes Tiger's 2015 season to date, there's only one direction to go -- up. "We want the old Tiger back," Stricker said yesterday. I think playing all four tournament rounds this week is a good goal for Woods.

The BBC reported earlier in the week that a 59-year-old US golfer carded three aces in a single round at a course in Virginia! Patrick Wills plays off a handicap of +4 and his remarkable round of 14-under par 57 not surprisingly won him the Summer Solstice Tournament for a 20th time.

The land was originally home to a golf course called Blaketree National, partly designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw and opened in 2001. Just four years later it closed and Woods’ design company chose to build another golf course directly on top of the old one.

The 2015 Maple Hill Open (about an hour west of Boston) was obviously a serious affair judging by the reaction of Dave Feldberg who tossed a superb hole-in-one on the ‘S-tunnel’ 3rd hole. There is some skill right there. I struggle to throw it straight in the wide open spaces of Australian beaches.

    Let’s get Australia’s World Long Drive champion back to the US to defend his title. The folks over at Grow the Game Central are looking for donations to get Australia’s ParaLong Drive champion back to the US to defend his title in November. Dave Sawtell won the World Championship Long Drive despite hitting from the seated position and only using one arm. The 180 metre drive won him the title but it wasn’t as long as his Australian long-drive record of 191 metres.

There’s no need to ‘Pull a Tiger‘ and bow out of the round.

After a half hour of pulling tire-changing tools and manuals out of the car and scattering them on the ground to make sense of it all, my son simply said..."Dad, why don't you use the tire pump in the car to pump up the tire?" Yeah,we had this air pump in the car that worked off the lighter...but my son...because he didn't know of any existing tire-changing…

There are actually several different ways manufacturers can achieve a draw bias, but before we get into that, let's cover a couple of minor details to help ensure everyone starts on the same page.

    Many businesses and social media influencers have no clue they are running off their viewers with the methods they use to deliver their content.  Actually, in most cases the methods they use are pissing off their followers so much they will not return.  A large number of people who use the internet as their way of expressing themselves have adopted…what they think or have been told are… popular forms of communication. They have an impression their method of posting content is accepted by their viewers and delivers their message in an entertaining way.
  • What I Have Learned from 40 Years of Operations Management

    It concerns me that over 85% of my readers have little if any experience in Operations Management.  Since there is such an alarming number of business people who lack operations management experience, I’ll focus on some of reason of what caused that to happen and what can be done about it. Definition: Operations management refers to the administration of business practices to create the highest level of efficiency possible within an organization while being concerned with converting materials and labor into goods and services as efficiently as possible to maximize the profit of an…

    ALL those still coming to terms with Australia’s recent major golf handicapping changes might be taken aback somewhat with the news Golf Australia  has just foreshadowed a new worldwide golf handicapping system could be introduced “within the next few years”. Golf Australia has foreshadowed the new worldwide handicapping system in a letter to all Australian golf clubs this week. Fortunately, from what Golf Australia is suggesting, it won’t mean turning the new Australian system on its head. After all, it should be remembered the new Australian system was in many respects introduced…

Woods claims he actually wasn’t that far off in what many regarded as a woeful performance when he missed the cut at the US Open a fortnight ago. In any case, his response was to take a short, but complete break from golf and go snorkelling and fishing with his kids in the Bahamas.

    29 Jun 2015 | 8:24 pm
    ROOKIE pro Minjee Lee has overtaken Karrie Webb as Australia’s top ranked female golfer – at least temporarily. The 19 year old Perth golfer finished in sixth place at the Arkansas Championship on LPGA Tour on the weekend, lifting her from 17th to 16th in the world rankings; while 40 year old Webb moved from 16th to 18th. Lee, a member of Golf Australia’s rookie squad, turned pro in September 2014 and won her first LPGA event, the Kingsmill Championship, in May. Clearly destined for great things, Lee has long been a fan of Webb, arguably Australia’s greatest ever golfer.

I mean how how do you practice balance drills or are cognitive of your COG?

Coincidentally while I was pondering my apathy, I got a…

If you look at the 6 (depending on how you count them) national and provincial golf programs focusing on beginners or learning to golf, only one focuses on adults – Get Golf Ready.  The rest all support junior golf development.

    As a society we become results focused early on in our lives. Scores and results become our measure of success. At school we’re measured by our grades, in our careers it’s typically the amount of money we make. In golf, it’s the number that totals your score for 18 holes that matters, and for a lot of us, that determines how much pleasure we get from it. But is this constant desire for results a good thing? I don’t think it is and in this article I’d like to show you a better and more effective approach to reaching your goals… As technology makes processes happen…

    Do you struggle with lag putts? Are you generally good a putter, but crack under pressure? Do you lose your focus and get scrambled over a long putt? Do you sometimes stand over a long putt and have no clue how hard to hit it? If so, this is a great putting drill for you… Feel for long putts Feel is an ethereal quality that they say can’t be taught. It can be true that people have varying amounts of feel gifted to them, but everyone can develop better feel; and we can develop it quicker with quality approaches in our practice. There are certainly technical elements which can aid feel…

    This year’s US Open is no doubt going to be an entertaining one! The course at Chamber’s Bay, WA is a true and beautiful links style course – dry fescue grass, rolling fairways, undulated greens, and at a whopping 7695 yards, it’s going to make this a very tough test of golf. If the golf course lives up to all the hype, he who overcomes all the mental challenges will have a fighting chance of lifting the trophy on Sunday evening. Here are what I believe to be the 7 keys to beating Chamber’s Bay and having a successful US Open. Even though these are what’s going to be required…

Rory said: “Physically I feel fine but mentally I could feel myself getting down on myself out there, which is not something I have been doing the last three weeks…I just need to be aware of that and keep everything on an even keel. It is acceptance of bad shots. Every time I have played well this year, I have been talking…

    Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by.  We’ve got a few shots of a new prototype by Wilson, that hit the USGA list recently.  Wilson says it was sent to the USGA earlier than anticipated because a tour player wanted to put the driver into play (likely at the Memorial a few weeks ago). The driver itself is still being tweaked ...

    Golf Dispute Resolution

  • Golf Establishment Responds To Trump

    Rob Harris
    1 Jul 2015 | 5:43 pm
    By: Rob Harris We all knew it wouldn’t take long. With the snowballing response to Donald Trump’s derogatory comments about Mexicans, someone was bound to ask him how this relates to his stature in the golf community. And…it was equally predictable that Mr. Trump would respond in, well, Trumpian fashion. Last night, when Golf Channel’s Tim Rosaforte asked, Trump responded as follows: “I’ve had tremendous support from the golf world, because they all know I’m right. I’ve been great to golf. I’ve been investing while everybody else was fleeing.” Having…

  • City And Residents Cannot Block Conversion Of Golf Course Into An Industrial Park

    Rob Harris
    30 Jun 2015 | 5:45 pm
    By: Rob Harris In March, developer Steven Bradford purchased Texas’ Great Southwest Golf Course. Weeks later, he closed the course, announcing plans to turn it into an industrial park. The city of Grand Prairie denied the requisite permits, claiming that nearby residents would suffer from the loss of green space. The city supported its refusal by citing a state statute that imposed restrictions on developing subdivision golf courses. Although the course was surrounded by townhouses, the homes were constructed long after the course was in place on land that carried with it an industrial…

Donald Trump, in announcing for President, offers a few choice words about the Mexican people: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” 2. Univision, Mexico’s largest Spanish-language TV network, responds by announcing that it…

    By: Rob Harris For obvious reasons, judges have to ensure that their impartiality cannot be questioned. It is not enough to avoid actual conflicts; even the appearance of bias can destroy faith in the fairness of the judicial system. Imagine how Craig Puchalsky must have felt when he learned that the judge who had recently presided over his divorce case announced–after ruling against Craig–that “a friend with whom he used to play golf was dating [Craig's ex-wife] Dawn.” The judge also advised “that, approximately a year before, they had played golf with…

    Are you about to host a golf tournament and in need of software to help make your life easier? Well Tournamatic is here to do just that. As a former golf professional I know that organizing a golf tournament requires a lot of time. Many hours are required to take care of all the details.

    I had a big problem a couple of weeks back. My golf clothes didn’t fit and I needed Victoria Alterations to help me out! You see, back at the end of June I was tipping the scale at 210 lbs! I hadn’t been that heavy since 2006. I knew I needed to do something. My weight had gotten out of control thanks to the Christmas Holidays followed by a trip to Hawaii in January. There was lots of drinking and poor eating habits occurring during those two periods. Squash was my answer to my weight problems. Or so I thought. After five months of playing regularly, my weight hadn’t budged.

But to get there – he has to win the Masters at least once. McIlroy has already managed to do what only two other golfers have ever managed in winning three different Major championships by the young age of 25. And when you consider who those other two golfers were – you quickly understand why Rory McIlroy really could join the list of…

Coming off the highest 36-hole total (80-76) of his professional career a few weeks ago at the U.S. Open, Woods finally put all the pieces of his game together for perhaps the first time this season. Despite his poor form as of late, Tiger has continued to insist that he was “close” to getting back into…

Reflections on Miura A few years ago, I reviewed the Miura CB-501 irons and was blown away.

    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.

  • Shaq Free Throws Putts At The Greenbrier Classic

    Shaq Golf Free Throw Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal can free throw a golf ball better than you can putt one. Don’t believe me? Watch the video below. Despite Shaq’s reputation as one of the best basketball players the sport has seen, he was famed for his poor career free throw average, at just 53%. At The Old White TPC golf course in White Sulphur Springs, Shaq achieved the much harder shot of free throwing a golf ball into a golf hole.

    Inbee Park Golf Swing South Korean born now California native Inbee Park, the current LPGA number one and top money earner has been considered one of the best women golfers in the world by some since she won the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open at Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minnesota at just 19 years old, in just her second year as a pro and the youngest woman to ever do so. The Inbee Park Swing in Slow Motion Park continued that success into 2009 but by 2011 she was struggling, so she made a decision to hire a new coach, Gi Hyeob Nam, who suggested a complete overhaul of her swing.

    Oklahoma native Jimmy Walker is what many might call one the current PGA tour’s late bloomers. After ten years slogging along in the middle of the pack he won three times in the first eight events of the 2014 PGA Tour season and played his way to his first Masters spot. In 2015 he is sitting in 12 spot in the world rankings, up from 45 at the same time last year, has won the 2015 Valero Texas Open and the Sony Open in Hawaii, got into a playoff at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and finished just two back at the Farmers Insurance Open so things are still looking good.

    There is almost literally an app for everything these days, even when it comes to golf. There are apps to find golf courses and even golfing partners, GPS apps that map those courses, apps to score with, even apps to learn from. And then there are golf themed games, there are plenty of them as well, designed to allow you to keep indulging your passion for playing golf even in the middle of winter when all of the courses are closed. Many of those games offer some rather realistic virtual play as well, complete with detailed courses, virtually human avatars and realistic golf gameplay. This…

  • Why Tiger Woods Sucks And What You Can Learn From His Struggle

    Author: Greg
    25 Jun 2015 | 3:24 am
    Tiger Woods missed the cut of the 115th US Open this year with an aggregated score of 156 after the first two rounds. This was the highest 36-hole score by Woods at a major championship yet. He struggles. He really struggles hard to find his game. Meanwhile the media goes totally bonkers tearing their former superstar apart. Comments like “He’s done!”, “He should quit golf!”, “He’ll never win a tournament, above all a major, again!” are common. It’s the old media game. People cheer you on when you are winning but clap the loudest when you…
  • Golf Swing Secrets Of The Greats – Nick Faldo

    Author: Greg
    18 Jun 2015 | 5:35 am
    When Nick Faldo was 14 years old he saw Jack Nicklaus playing at the 1971 Masters on his parents’ color tv he was inspired to pick up a golf club himself. Fast forward a couple of years he was a successful British amateur golfer. Only 20 years old he became the youngest player ever to qualify for the Ryder Cup. With all he has achieved in his career, even including a knighthood in 2009, I think the most incredible thing about Faldo is how fast he reached a competitive, professional level. Especially when you consider how late he started when compared to other players of his time. With…
  • 5 Tips For More Consistency You Might Not Have Heard Yet

    14 Jun 2015 | 1:57 am
    Consistency is key to shoot low scores and also one of the parts most golfers struggle with. Usually the root causes for inconsistency aren’t the tiny details in their swing people are tinkering with. Working on major body angles like the spine angle, shoulder turn and lower body can yield big rewards. Here are five quick tips that might be new to you to make your golf swing more consistent. Try them and I bet you will hit the ball more solidly and straighter. #1 – Keep Your Eyes Level For Better Ball Striking Here’s Rory McIlroy as an example. Maximum torque but keeping his…
  • Golfs Ultimate Hustler – Titanic Thompson

    4 Jun 2015 | 5:12 am
    As a major witness at the 1929 Arnold Rothstein murder trial in New York City Alvin Clarence Thomas was asked how he’s making a living. The answer:”I play golf occasionally…”. This was probably the understatement of the century and a big fat lie on top. The man was known in all states of the USA under his nickname Titanic Thompson. He brought a lot of honest people and a couple of gangsters to bet against him in all ways of imaginable gambles and won most of them. He was one of the most successful con man of his time and he played golf occasionally if he knew he could…
  • Golf Swing Secrets Of The Greats – Seve Ballesteros

    Author: Greg
    28 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    There’s a story that comes from Billy Foster, Seve Ballesteros’ one-time caddy. Once on the golf course at Wentworth Seve knocked his approach shot through the back of a green. This left him with a seemingly impossible lie to recover from. Seve had no green to work with because the flag stick was also positioned in the back. With this challenge at hand Billy turned to Seve and asked him “What do you think?” Seve answered “No problem, I will hit the flag.”. Billy thought this would be a very risky play because hitting the flagstick could deflect the ball anywhere – if Seve…

  • The Greenbrier Classic Fantasy Preview

    Josh Culp
    1 Jul 2015 | 3:55 pm
    The PGA TOUR heads to West Virginia this week for the Greenbrier Classic. The course is The Old White TPC. I hope it’s not named after The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. Those guys are scary. The course is a par 70 that is pretty average in length. There is the issue of altitude that these golfers will need to deal with. This can be troubling for some of these perfectionists that are used to dialing in irons to within feet of their expected yardages. This gives a leg up to guys that have altitude golf experience, that can stay level-headed after a mis-club, or can scramble…

  • Travelers Championship Fantasy Preview

    24 Jun 2015 | 2:33 pm
    It’s road trip time! After hanging out at Chambers Bay last week, let’s hitchhike to Cromwell, Connecticut, for this week’s Travelers Championship. It’s just 2,974 miles away, an easy 44 hour drive. You’ll drive through about 10 states along the way, including the scenic North Dakota. The course this week is TPC River Highlands, one of the shortest on TOUR. It’s just a par 70 track, so less emphasis on par 5s this week. The fairways and greens are generous, but pin placements force you to get aggressive, leading to a lot of short-sided chips. That’s…
