    23 Nov 2014 | 5:32 am
    Sakura Yokomine's 23rd career victory on the JLPGA may be one of her sweetest.  Not only was her win at the ElleAir Ladies Open her 1st of 2014, it may well be her last as a JLPGA member--at least for awhile--as she's one of the favorites at LPGA Q-School's final stage in early December.  Of course, she can go on to win the final event of the JLPGA season, the Ricoh Cup, next week.  But let's stay in the present for now!Yokomine entered the final round 2 shots behind 20-year-old sensation Ai Suzuki, who bounced back from a bogey on the 197-yard par-3 3rd with birdies on the 4th…

    With the top golfers on the LPGA apparently feeling the pressure of playing for $1.5M and having trouble dealing with the changeable winds and slower greens at Tiburon this week at the CME Group Tour Championship, the door is slightly ajar for some unsung heroes to make like Christina Kim and make a statement at the end of 2014.  Julieta Granada has been dinking her way around the course, while Carlota Ciganda has been bombing her ways around it, but despite the 55-yard difference in average driving distance between them thus far this week, they find themselves tied for the lead at…

    With most fantasy championships being decided in Week 16 - and many NFL teams jockeying for playoff position -- SB Nation Medical Expert Dr. Ali Mohamadi gives insight into the most notable injuries in the NFL landscape and how they might affect your roster decisions. The status of Dallas running back DeMarco Murray has been the source of palpitations for Cowboys fans and fantasy owners alike this week.

  • NFL picks and predictions, Eagles vs. Washington 2014: Experts almost unanimous in picking Philadelphia

    20 Dec 2014 | 7:20 am
    The Philadelphia Eagles need a win in Week 16, and experts think they'll get one. The Philadelphia Eagles failed to keep control of the NFC East and now face a must-win game in Week 16 to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Eagles lost control to the Dallas Cowboys, but if there's anything going in their favor, it's that they have an easier matchup this week. They'll be taking on Washington on Saturday, while the Cowboys have to play the Indianapolis Colts, who have clinched the AFC South. Washington has been outright bad for much of the season. They're 3-11 on the year, with a ton of issues…

    The St. Louis Rams are heavily favored to best the New York Giants, at least according to experts around the Internet. Both the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams are well out of the playoff race, but there's still interesting aspects to their Week 16 matchup. For instance, the Rams have been playing solid defense of late, and haven't allowed a touchdown in three consecutive games. As a counter to that, Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. caught three touchdown passes in Week 15 against Washington. New York has won its last two games, beating the Tennessee Titans in Week 14 and…

    Philadelphia attempts to regain a playoff spot, while Washington searches for its fourth win of a miserable season. The Philadelphia Eagles are 9-5, but on the outside of the playoff picture. Despite having a superb year, the Eagles are second in the NFC East after losing to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. With a win Saturday against Washington and a loss by the Cowboys against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend, Philadelphia could jump back into the third seed. For the Eagles, it has been a rollercoaster season. Philadelphia was cruising along until Week 9 when Nick Foles broke his collarbone…

    Just because the Packers lost to Buffalo doesn't mean anyone expects them to drop a game to Tampa Bay. The battle of the bays doesn't look like it'll be much of a battle. The Green Bay Packers, fighting for the NFC North and a playoff berth, shouldn't face much of a test from the two-win Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the experts are unanimously picking against the upset. Every panelist from SB Nation, ESPN, CBS Sports and Fox Sports are siding with the Packers on Sunday afternoon. True, Green Bay did drop a surprising game to the Buffalo Bills last week. But the Bills, who are still in the…

    I’ve written a couple of Christmas themed golf articles for Inside Golf over the years. This one appeared in the 2014 December issue of Inside Golf. This article originally appeared in Inside Golf where Michael Green writes a monthly column. ‘Twas the day before Christmas, when out on the greens A golfer was playing, in t-shirt and jeans; The signs were quite clear by the shop and first tee, To be dressed like a golfer, not a poor Christmas tree; The members were lunching on pudding and cream, When the vision of this uncouth golfer was seen; The club captain roared “Now this…

    Wade Ormsby is one of the few Australians playing golf on the European Tour, and he’s doing it all while living in Adelaide. Wade Ormsby has had a great 2014. The South Australian almost grabbed victory at the Australian PGA championship as part of the dramatic 3-way playoff last week, and his form in Europe has been very good. In 28 events on the European Tour in 2014, Ormsby had four top-10 finishes including two in his last three starts, finished high enough in the rankings for a spot in the final tournament of the year and has won himself over €500,000 in prize money.

  • Can you declare your golf ball lost? Rules reminder

    Aussie Golfer
    16 Dec 2014 | 6:11 pm
    Ahead of a summer break jam-packed full of golf, we thought we would just go over some of the often confused rules of golf, starting with the lost ball. A regular source of disagreement between golfers is at what point your golf ball is lost. Most golfers are aware that you have 5 minutes to search for your golf ball – after that your ball is deemed lost and under the penalty of one stroke play your next shot “as nearly as possible at the spot from which the original ball was last played”.
  • Woman killed in Sydney siege is daughter of ex-R&A captain

    All else seems nothing more than trivialities this week after the horrific siege that occurred in Sydney. Two hostages were killed: a brave café owner who reportedly did his best to fight the gunman, and a young lawyer, wife and mother of three children, Katrina Dawson. Dawson was the daughter of Sandy Dawson, a prominent barrister and businessman, but also the president of the Royal Sydney Golf Club and former captain of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club.

  • PGA Tour’s Drug Testing Policy

    Robin
    14 Dec 2014 | 10:58 pm
    There is a lot of talk going around the club about the PGA Tour’s drug testing policy. Some people are for it, and others are against it. I am not totally against it, but it seems like they aren’t taking it seriously enough. They seem to pick and choose the punishments depending on what play gets accused. Read the latest article about Dustin Johnson’s PGA suspension for violating the drug policy. I am totally against performance enhancing drugs, and don’t understand how or why anyone would use them. I think it is completely unfair and stupid to take them, and even if you win the…

    Although most of my life revolves around golf, I do enjoy doing other things. Having a young son and a beautiful wife, I have to spend time with them too. She knows that golf is my passion and doesn’t mind that I spend most of my weekends and even some evenings playing. My wife will often come to the golf club on the weekends and watch me, like she used to when we first met, and is very supportive. Family I do try to spend some time with my family though, as my son seems to be growing up so fast, and I have missed a lot of it either at work or playing golf. When he turned 1, it suddenly…
  • PGA Golfer Dustin Johnson Should Use Synthetic Urine Next Time

    Robin
    4 Nov 2014 | 2:42 pm
    As a human, I feel bad about the recent events in the life of Dustin Johnson. Before he failed his drug test, leaving him off the PGA Tour for months, the seasoned veteran suffered multiple heartbreaks at the majors. Dustin Johson has never won a PGA tour major but has been close many times. He’s led with only a few holes remaining in the British Open, only to hit a critical shot out of bounds. Do you remember the events that unfolded at Whistling Straits? He thought he had won the tournament after putting out on the 18th hole. He later found out that a small area of sand was…

    We all know that I love the game of golf, but most people don’t know that my wife secretly loves the game too. When we first met she thought it was completely silly, and laughed at the thought of playing it. Time passed and she slowly started to gain an interest. I think it started to sink-in after the 2010 Masters. Who doesn’t get all jazzed after watching that golf tournament? She started practicing everyday for about a month. I was thrilled that she found that much excitement. But, all of a sudden she stopped her practice sessions. When I asked her why, she said she had…

    15 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    Written By: Tony Covey What does the future hold for Adams Golf? Now that Adams HQ has been closed what will TaylorMade do with the brand? Will Adams continue to do what it does from TaylorMade's home base in Carlsbad? Is it destined to become a brand exclusively for old men and hackers, or will TaylorMade effectively kill off the brand entirely? After nearly 3 years, real answers are finally starting to emerge. 3 Years in Limbo It's been nearly 3 years since TaylorMade acquired the Adams Golf Company. While many predicted TaylorMade would eventually destroy the brand, that hasn't happened…

  • Seventh time lucky for Greg Chalmers at the 2014 Australian PGA

    Brian O'Hare
    14 Dec 2014 | 1:08 am
    GREG CHALMERS has his second Australian PGA Championship title after a marathon playoff victory over Adam Scott and Wade Ormsby at the RAVC Royal Pines on the Gold Coast. The 41 year old shot a magnificent 8-under 64 to tie defending champion Scott (71) and Orsmby (71) in regulation and force what was to become seven extra holes to decide the 2014 title. Ormsby will be kicking himself after missing a relative sitter on the second playoff hole that would have secured his biggest ever win but it is Scott who would have left the course most frustrated with his putting and pitching performance.

After a weather interrupted Thursday the first round was completed early Friday at RACV Royal Pines Resort with the second round immediately following. Playing in the afternoon field Scott Strange fired the round of the day with a 6-under 66 to tie Wade Ormsby, who had a second round 5-under 67, on 9-under the card. “I think we got the right side of the draw with the storms and that rolling in…

Weekley shot a 6-under 66 in the morning flight and will take a two stroke lead into the second day at the RAVC Royal Pines Resort. With the course barraged by lightning storms play was suspended at 1.30pm and then abandoned for the day after play had resumed at 4.30pm.

  • Attention 50 And Over Golfer: Improve Golf Power And Distance With This Portable Training Aid

    Mike
    11 Dec 2014 | 11:01 am
    I’ve been hearing for over 14 years from golfers in their 50’s and 60’s how much distance they’ve lost. I know how frustrating that can be, especially if you are consistently the shortest hitter in your foursome. Your buddies just know you’ll be first to hit your second shot, due to being the shortest off the tee. What’s the solution? As I’ve said for 14 years now, you must improve the strength and flexibility of your golf-specific muscles. For the average 50 and above golfer, this means doing some kind of exercise/stretch every day if possible, as it…

      Today I want to talk about a very common swing fault that’s called “flipping through impact”. And it looks like this. And this is a killer for distance and accuracy in your golf swing. I want to show you a simple fix, but before I do I want to make a disclaimer. All the videos that I shoot are based on my own personal experience. I’ve viewed over a thousand golf swing videos of PGA players, senior PGA players, and all levels of handicap players. And I’ve studied the golf swing inside and out, so I know the biomechanics. But when I shoot a video like this,…

But now, that I’ve got some good feelings and some thoughts I want to relay them to you so that you can fix it a lot quicker than I did. A lateral sway can be in 2 parts of your body. Obviously, it can be in the upper body where you sway off the ball. It can also be in the lower body where you’re swaying, you’re lower body, your knee is moving laterally too much.

But golfers love golf and that’s why they search high and low for new ways to improve their game. With that in mind, I would like to share with you a rather unique perspective and reveal a simple trick to help you improve your play. But before I go any further, I feel the need to confess something. I am not a…

    For those of you who hate to read and just want the bottom line; if you’ve been thinking about getting a GPS watch for golf you won’t go wrong with the Bushnell Neo XS. If they did away with all yardage tools and markers it would be OK with me. However that’s not going to happen. The best players in the world want to know exact yardages so why shouldn’t amateurs benefit from some course knowledge. I don’t think anyone would argue that they don’t. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve over or under clubbed because I didn’t really know yardage. First there was the handheld GPS,…

Visualization is one of those things that doesn’t require any physical skill to learn, but as Nick Faldo says, it’s the most powerful thing you have. Why is visualization so important for golf? The world’s best golfers use the practice of visualizing a great performance before the action for a very good reason – it works! Visualization has been proven to: Stimulate the muscles necessary to…
  • Proof That Where Your Focus Is During A Golf Shot Affects Your Accuracy

    David MacKenzie
    26 Nov 2014 | 6:46 am
    Most golfers I speak with are unsure exactly where their focus should be during a golf shot. And it’s amazing how many swing thoughts someone can have during the 2 second period of the golf swing! Studies have shown that when golfers (or athletes in general) focus on something external during their swing, they perform better than when they focus on something internal. By external, I mean focusing on the effect of the movement, like the motion of the club or the ball, On the other hand, internal focus is on the movement of the body itself, like where your arms are during the swing. This…
  • How to take your range game to the course (yes, really)

    David MacKenzie
    18 Nov 2014 | 11:05 am
    One major difference between consistent and inconsistent performance among golfers is due to brain activity. Studies have shown that the higher the handicap, the higher the brain activity of a golfer. And this “over-thinking” gets worse the more pressure the player feels. Generally speaking, inconsistencies in a golfer’s performance are undoubtedly due to an inconsistent mental approach to each shot and to what extent the conscious brain is allowed to interfere with the swing. Accessing the “Super-fluid State” “Swing motion at its highest level is the…
  • Have you tried the Tour Player’s Pre-putt Routine?

    David MacKenzie
    12 Nov 2014 | 10:25 am
    Next time you watch the PGA Tour on the TV, be sure to watch what a Tour player does before each putt. I guarantee if you follow the same sequence, you will lower your putts per round average quickly. In fact, this is something you can practice during the off-season, when the weather isn’t good enough to get to the course. Your pre-putt routine Your pre-putt routine doesn’t have to follow this exactly (we all have our own individual style), but I’ve outlined the basic steps that a Tour player goes through before every putt. However you integrate this into your pre-putt…
  • The Tour Player Secret To Better Ball Striking

    David MacKenzie
    5 Nov 2014 | 6:19 am
    If you’re like most golfers, in any given round you’ll hit a mixture of thin, fat, heel and toe shots, which becomes very frustrating. If you’re not making consistently solid contact with the center of the club, your distance control and accuracy will be no where near as good as it could be. So what’s the solution? I’m sure you’ve heard the tip “keep your head down” to improve ball striking, but how many of us know about the role that our eyes play in this? Could hitting the ball thin not be a result of lifting your head up, but because your eyes are looking at the top of the…

    Rob Harris

    By: Rob Harris There is an interesting dispute unfolding concerning Tallahassee (Florida)’s Killeam Country Club. The club owner, facing economic challenges, desires to close nine of the club’s 27 holes, and sell part of the land to finance improvements to the remainder of the course. Homeowners, especially those who live adjacent to the holes earmarked to be closed and sold, have objected, referencing land covenants that provide the owners with a right of first refusal to purchase the land if it is offered for sale. The home owners scheduled a vote as to whether they would…

The member, who for purposes of the case was deemed to be disabled by virtue of a broken ankle suffered in 2006, was an active golfer, playing 100 rounds between April and September, before heading off for more golf in Arizona during the winter. However, his injury precluded him from walking, and he asserted that, even though he was financially able to absorb the cart fees, the club…

Neighborhood resistance to the plan surfaced… no surprise.

    In case you missed it, Jones quietly released their second Players Series bag and it has turned out to be one of my favorite bags of the year. It’s incredibly refreshing to see Jones continue to release minimalist bags that are rooted in tradition while still being functional enough to provide all of the necessities for walking golfers. 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…

    The rebirth of the Jones Sports Company has been a wonderful thing for the golf industry. Jones has continued to release modern remixes of the classic Jones golf bags and has been a strong proponent of the walking golfer. The Jones Stand Bag I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Jones Stand Bag. While I trusted that the bag would be solid, I was skeptical that the single strap coupled with a stand would work out. After a dozen rounds walking with the bag, I can fully advocate for the strap/stand combination and for this bag in particular. I have been enjoying this bag thoroughly. I…

  • Sampson Wins 2014 Twin Lakes Series Championship

    Mike Sampson partnered all season long with Ryan Mikita in the Scramble Series events at The Fairways at Twin Lakes — except for one event in June. He finished well down the list of results that month, too. But the 20 ‘participation points’ he earned in that event put him into first place alone for the 2014 Twin Lakes Series Championship, which earned him the top prize as the leading points winner for the season. Sampson and Mikita tied for first place in the May event, then won outright in each event for three months in a row July, August and September. Those four first…

    Gerina Piller, a member of the L.P.G.A. Tour, said she had received more playing privileges as the wife of a professional player than for being a professional golfer herself. Credit Darren Carroll/Getty Images There are few who will argue Golf will need to improve its image if it intends to grow out of the economic recession it has been fighting to get out of for almost 10 years. Make the Easy Changes There are a number of things Golf has to change in order to attract more people to golf and bring golfers back to playing golf.  Some of the changes are going to be tough but there are a few…

  • Business Golfer: What To Look For In a Private Country Club

    mrbg
    17 Sep 2014 | 12:19 pm
    I am frequently asked to list the things someone interested in joining a private country club would need to consider before joining their membership. Private Country Clubs are by far the best place to experience quality golf.  It is very rare for a private country club to not have at the very least a quality atmosphere for golf.  Sometimes their golf courses are not in the best shape, or they maybe a little boring for the above average golfer, but on the most part, it is the relaxed atmosphere that encourages golfers to play more golf. Private golf clubs are also the best place for a…

    13 Sep 2014 | 10:03 am
    image from Golfdigest.com Seems the mission many Private Country Clubs have set out on to attract Younger Golfers is failing. One of the tactics many of the Private Country Clubs around the nation are using to attract the under 35 golfers is to relax their ‘common sense’ policies.  It seems private clubs will do anything to keep from deterring the interest of younger golfers. There is no issue with many of the policies of Private Country Clubs needing to be updated.  However, sometimes many of the private country club’s leadership attempt to make playing golf at a country…

  • Golf Swing Secrets Of The Greats – Tom Watson

    Author: Greg
    17 Dec 2014 | 1:00 am
    When we are talking about grace and staying true to the game it doesn’t get any better than Tom Watson. Thomas Sturges Watson was born in September 4, 1949 and is still one of the most iconic golfers of our time. With 71 professional victories and 8 major titles he was one of the few players who challenged Jack Nicklaus in his prime years. Their head-to-head battles made golf history and held everybody in awe. One of the most dramatic and famous shots was the chip in by Watson at the U.S. Open in 1982 at the 17th hole of Pebble Beach. (His trousers alone are worth the watch ;-) ) This shot…

    As of late there has been a lot of buzz around Tiger again. In late August Tiger parted ways with his recent swing coach Sean Foley saying “I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship (…)”. Then there was the debacle about the fake interview by Dan Jenkins on Golf Digest which even triggered a response from a slightly annoyed Tiger. And finally this November Tiger announced via twitter that he will be working together with Chris Como having him as his new swing consultant. Notice that he says Como will be his swing consultant. If that’s…

    WHACK! There goes Jasons first ball of the day curving way to the right shooting almost off the range. Shaking his head he pulls up another one and… WHACK! This one goes low and straight to the left. “Well, better not still not my best golf swing.” he thinks to himself. So he goes on hitting golf balls one after the other while he gets more and more tense because expecting that he can do better. It’s almost time to tee it off. “Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to get a practice session in just before hitting the course with Anthony?” he thinks to…

But let‘s face it, all golfers are influenced by other golfers, team mates and opponents alike. So dealing with your own feelings when playing has a big influence on your game. This becomes especially true when you are facing a player that is significantly better than you and is even cocky about it. Situations like this are great lessons to learn about yourself and your game. When you are up against a tough competitor,…

    Well FantasyDraft had a tough opening week but I will say they did a great job making sure that all customers were refunded their entries that did not cash in the guaranteed contests.  My plays were overall pretty good and I managed to finish in the money but fell short of the big top heavy price pool. This week we will move back to DraftKings.  One thing to note:  This is the last week DraftKings will run the $27 Millionaire Maker tournament.  Head on over to DraftKings and take a shot at $1,000,000.   What do you say we jump into this weeks plays?

    Athletes. 6 Degrees of Pay Referral Program. Overlay. Poker. By now I’m sure you’ve heard some of the above connected to the new Daily Fantasy Sport site, FantasyDraft.com.  FantasyDraft made a ton of noise roughly one month ago by signing some of the biggest names in the poker world to “Pro” contracts.  Did they stop there?  Hell no!  They went out and grabbed A-list athletes including Drew Brees.  I think this is just the beginning for this site and possibly the biggest game-changer with this site is their referral program called The 6 Degrees of Pay Referral…
  • New DFS Site FantasyDraft Review

    28 Nov 2014 | 10:14 am
    The Daily Fantasy Sports industry has come a long way in the past five years. I signed up for my first account in 2009 and back then you were happy if the total prize pool reached $1,000. Now you have sites crowning millionaires and you feel disappointed if the winner of a $2 contest doesn’t win a thousand dollars. With all the growth in the industry, it’s easy to ignore all the new sites that are trying to make a name for themselves. That’s what I did with the new site, FantasyDraft, until last week. I finally caved when I saw the stable of endorsers they had on their team,…

  • Does Trump International Golf Links Live Up to It’s Lofty Expectations?

    Sean Ogle
    6 Dec 2014 | 10:25 am
    Of all the courses I played in Scotland, there’s one that didn’t quite fit in: Trump International Golf Links. And I think that’s one of the reasons I insisted that we make the effort to play it. Unlike just about every other course we played (save for Kingsbarns), Trump wasn’t built over a hundred years ago – it wasn’t even around a decade ago. In a country where there’s so much emphasis on history, it’s pretty shocking to see a new course (a Trump one nonetheless) come in with such high praise. Everything I’d read before traveling was…

    Did you know Jack Nicklaus made golf balls? Neither did I until I recently got the chance to test them out. And I’ve gotta say, it might be time you start paying attention, as there are some unique aspects to Nicklaus balls that could make it worth of putting in your bag. This year after incredible amounts of testing by the one and only Jack Nicklaus, the Nicklaus companies rolled out 3 lines of golf balls: the white, the blue, and the black. Already, they’ve done something right in making it stupid easy to figure out which balls to use. Play from the white tees? Use the white…

    Before arriving in Scotland, Carnoustie was one of those courses I’d heard extremely mixed reactions about. On the one hand, it’s held the British Open multiple times (and will hold it again in 2018), and John who has played all of the Top 100 Courses in the World ranked it was one of his very favorite courses – noting that it has one of the best finishing stretches in golf, as well as the best greens (alongside Augusta National). That’s saying something. Others I’d heard refer to it as the most “homely” of all the open courses. I’d heard that…

    I couldn’t tell you why, but of all the courses on the Top 100 Public list, there’s one my readers and friends have told me about more than any other: Tobacco Road. I had one reader tell me this earlier this year: “If you like fun golf courses, RUN, don’t walk, to Tobacco Road. You’ll thank me.” Another said: “You’re playing the Top 100 Public Courses? So that means, you’re playing Tobacco Road, right? You’re going to love it.” So all that was left to do now was get to North Carolina! Luckily a few weeks ago the opportunity to head to the Think Tank 2014…

    The Big Bertha V series is a result of the popularity of last years OptiForce driver. Callaway literally sold out of the entire mid season driver OptiForce before they knew it was popular. The current strategy at Callaway is to focus on innovation and they are focusing on innovation via speed with the V series. Even though the Big Bertha line is still dominating commercials and print ads, Callaway is moving ahead to bring golfers more speed and hopefully more distance with its lightest and most aerodynamic driver yet, the Big Bertha V series.

Can the 25 year old cap whats been a fantastic season with one last win? Going into the event, McIlroy is the 5/1 favourite, and while the Northern Irishman’s form this past season has been very hot indeed, he looks plenty short enough in the betting. Considering there are a number of players in good form and given the fact that McIlroy comes into this event off the back of a lengthy break, at the price, he’s just too short and…

    In this years Ryder Cup, Europe once again showcased their superiority over the US, with a resounding 16 1/2 to 11 1/2 victory. That victory at Gleneagles took the Europeans to a staggering six wins from the last seven encounters, and eight from the last ten. Pretty damning stuff for the US. With these statistics in mind, is it time to give the Americans a helping hand, similar to the one they so kindly gave all those years ago? It was 1977, when conversations led by legendary American golfer, Jack Nicklaus, brought about a change to the format of the competition. After years of American…

    The anchoring stroke often used by golfers putting with the ‘belly putter’ has long been a hot topic in the world of professional golf, and as of January 1st, 2016, it will be dispelled from the game. The new law,  known as rule 14-1b, will stop players from utilising an anchored stroke. However, is this the right decision? Should the anchoring action, synonymous with the ‘belly’ putter or ‘broom-handle’ putter be illegal? The punishment for carrying out an anchored putting stroke will be a 2 stroke penalty or the immediate loss of the hole in match…
