    How do you get a 14-stroke penalty in a pro golf tournament? By misunderstanding the "lift, clean, replace" condition of competition. Today I got 7 (2shot) penalties in my first 7 holes! #ihategolf #golfhatesme— Anna Scott (@Anna_Scottie) August 28, 2015 The golfer is Anna Scott of England, the tournament is the HLR Golf Academy Open on the Finnish Tour, cosanctioned by the LET Access Series (
  • Braced Right Knee in the Golf Swing

    GolfDash Blog | Accelerate Your Golf Performance
    27 Aug 2015 | 5:45 am
    The right knee in the golf swing is one area that is critical to keep braced and solid during your swing. Here’s a tip/drill that will help you with that. There are so many golf training aids out there that it is really difficult sometimes to separate the wheat from the chaff but we’ll try to really do that with just 1 drill. Of course there are many drills but this one, to me anyway, really gives you the proper “feel” of the position the right knee needs to be in. What’s even more interesting is that I’m a lefty and it’s difficult to not think of…
  • How To Find the Right Golf Ball

    Tony Covey
    26 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Written By: Dean Snell There are a couple of questions I get asked all the time: How should I test golf balls? How do I know which ball is right for me? The answer is easier than you may think. The Golf Ball Has Changed Back in the early 90’s, there were basically two types of golf balls. There were hard, two-piece, Pinnacle balls and soft Tour Balata type balls, and there was a huge performance difference between them. In fact, at that time, our tests looked closely at driver spin and 8 iron spin. What we found was that drivers produced around 4000 RPM for balata balls, while spin rates…

    Written By: Tony Covey Precision is Back. More to the point, Ben Hogan, or at least the equipment company bearing his name, is back. The return of the once-iconic equipment brand is perhaps the golf equipment story of the year (Feel Good Division). Longtime Hogan enthusiasts celebrated its hopefully triumphant return, while modern independent-minded golfers welcomed a potentially viable alternative to the mainstream. Me, I’ve been skeptical from day one. By now you should know the story. Terry Koehler who’s responsible for the Scor Golf short game brand (and the Eidolon brand before that)…

    Tom Brady struggled out of the gate but recovered with a beautiful touchdown throw, and backup Jimmy Garoppolo looked solid once again in preseason action Friday. It was a rough outing for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the team's third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers on Friday. New England went three-and-out on its first two drives, and Brady tossed interceptions on each of the following two drives. From there it was two more three-and-outs and it was looking like Brady's day was done. But the Patriots kept him out there and he managed to sneak in a scoring drive…

Names such as Tiger Woods, Adam Scott, Ernie Els, Charl Schwartzel, Louis Oosthuizen, Rory McIlroy and Michelle Wie come to mind when we think about the game's best swings. But there are many similarly great swings from the amateur ranks that are unknown simply due to their limited exposure. One of them is Jack Dirkin.

  • 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…

    Sandbox8.comUnboxing: Cleveland Golf TFI 2135 1.0 Putter Cleveland Golf is looking to help solve the dreaded alignment problem golfers face when setting up to putt with its new line of TFI 2135 series of putters. The new TFI 2135 putter solves the alignment issue, by raising the alignment line to the exact radius of the golf ball, or 2135 mm, which they claim is the most accurate for a blade putter in the TFI 2135 1.0 model. The alignment never moves relative to the golf ball because it is placed at the dead center of the golf ball, regardless of how you putt: eyes behind the ball, directly…

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. Lateral Sway – Upper Body Or Lower Body So a lateral sway can be in two parts of your body.

    Cleveland Golf is calling it “revolutionary.” We might simply opt for “f**** brilliant.” We speak of the alignment technology on the new Cleveland Golf TFi 2135 putters, which consists of a raised sightline that matches the exact radius of a regulation golf ball. In other words, when the club is grounded, the sightline runs parallel to the ground at a height of 21.35 millimeters, which is dead center with the ball at address. Most blade putters feature a sightline that runs along the center of the bottom flange. Such sightlines are merely a common ornamentation as…

The Golf Ball Has Changed Back in the early 90’s, there were basically two types of golf balls. There were hard, two-piece, Pinnacle balls and soft Tour Balata type balls, and there was a huge performance difference between them. In fact, at that time, our tests looked closely at driver spin and 8 iron spin. What we found was that drivers produced around 4000 RPM for balata balls, while spin rates…

  • Braced Right Knee in the Golf Swing

    27 Aug 2015 | 5:45 am
    The right knee in the golf swing is one area that is critical to keep braced and solid during your swing. Here’s a tip/drill that will help you with that. There are so many golf training aids out there that it is really difficult sometimes to separate the wheat from the chaff but we’ll try to really do that with just 1 drill. Of course there are many drills but this one, to me anyway, really gives you the proper “feel” of the position the right knee needs to be in. What’s even more interesting is that I’m a lefty and it’s difficult to not think of…
  • Mizuno Golf Shirt – Pleasant Surprise

    12 Aug 2015 | 9:52 am
      I was fortunate to get a golf shirt to demo from the new Mizuno Pro Apparel line. I received it 2 months ago and wanted to give it a decent workout before writing this review. Sometimes a shirt feels great (or lousy) after the first wearing, but then changes over time. I wore and washed this shirt at least 10 times. I wore it many times in very hot humid weather, which really is critical to me in testing wearability. While most of the synthetic materials do whisk away perspiration, they feel like wet plastic on the skin. It’s gotten so bad that I’m buying cotton shirts. I’d…

    10 Aug 2015 | 5:16 am
    Using “anchors” and “triggers” can be a powerful way to permanently imprint those successful feelings and behaviors that your want to produce in your golf performance. Let’s start out by discussing what is exactly meant by “anchors” and “triggers.” I’m sure the concept of anchors and triggers are somewhat familiar to you but if not they are most closely associated with NLP (Nuero-linguistic Programming) You can find out more about it here: Neuro-lingustic Programming. First, what exactly are “trigger” words? They are…

    27 Jul 2015 | 10:53 am
    I wanted to talk today about how we can use measurement via metrics to achieve the performance results we are looking for in our golf game. Measurement, tracking, numbers – even music and poetry, have a type of mathematical beauty. Bertrand Russell expressed his sense of mathematical beauty in these words: Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such…

    23 Aug 2015 | 2:32 pm
    I've developed of a bit of a reputation for beating up on some golf courses for not recognizing their responsibility in growing the game of golf.  Not all golf courses are delinquent but we still have a long way to go in North America. One campaign which has shown promise is the  National Golf Course Owners Association Canada (NGCOA) Kids Play Free program.

    Diversification has been the mantra of financial advisers since the dawn of the stock exchange and for good reason. Putting all of one's eggs into one basket is a high-risk game in personal wealth management as well as in many businesses.  Unfortunately for the golf industry, it hasn't jumped on the diversification gravy train and is suffering the consequences.   The "never break convention" convictions shared by many purists of the game may think their are preserving the game, but in fact, they are killing it. The same was true in winter sports. Although snowboarding has been around…

  • The Paradox of Golf

    18 Aug 2015 | 9:04 am
    The following poem appeared at the beginning of a column on New England golf in the May 1915 issue of The American Golfer. A golfer using the pseudonym “Bunker Hill” wrote the column. The poem was not given a title but “ The Paradox of Golf” might fit. My drive is erratic, my brassie’s the same, My irons are atrocious, and awful my aim, My mashie is tearful, my putting worse still, My scores have the look of a dressmaker’s bill; My legs are a-weary, my wrists are quite lame, But I am most happy—I’m playing the game.

      Everyone has their own answer to the question “What is golf?” Here is mine, taken from my Ebook “If Only I Could Play that Hole Again.”      ON COURSE Golf is a singular way to take temporary leave following a zigzag path in search of a small white ball; to abandon reality, but stay the course, hole after hole; to create a new story, always different to be told to someone before it’s forgotten. An extraordinary chance to pretend for a brief time no matter how unskilled that each stroke will be flawless; to endure the pain of failure without really failing, and even…

    Golf Tips & Instruction For The Mental Game

    David MacKenzie
    28 Aug 2015 | 3:15 am
    Over the past ten years I’ve taught a lot of golfers how to improve their golf game through a better mental approach. During their initial assessment, I determine what their goals and current struggles are. Then we work on “picking the low hanging fruit”… In 99% of cases, the place to start is with one very common mental game mistake. They will say: “I practice way better than I play…I don’t understand it. I shoot in the 70s in practice but in competitions I’m usually in the 80s or even higher.” We all want to get better at this game. We all know that we have a…

    A consistent putting warm-up Golf is a game of confidence. How you approach each round mentally and physically can make a big difference in how confident you feel. One of the things to make consistent is your warm up. The elite players I work with have a very consistent warm up, right down to the number of shots and putts they make before each round. From my experience, the quality of the shots you hit during your warm up has no relationship with your score for the round. Some players feel like they didn’t hit it great during the warm up but shoot in the 60s and vice versa. It’s important…
  • The key to more distance and accuracy with the driver

    David MacKenzie
    2 Aug 2015 | 4:35 am
    While watching the PGA Tour players at the Quicken Loans National yesterday, I noted several things that help them hit more fairways with the driver, but here’s what I believe to be the most significant. Probably the biggest difference between the Tour player and amateur with the driver is tempo. The driver is the only club that you want to hit as far as possible, so the tendency is to swing it hard and fast, which actually kills accuracy and distance. The key to a consistent swing is coordination of upper and lower body, and if your tempo is too fast, it’s hard to get it right. Tempo is…

That being said – there are very few golf clothing companies that I would consider “high quality” clothing providers. Holderness and Bourne is a breath of fresh air. Their shirts are not only the best quality that I’ve seen for an initial run for a golf-specific company – they’re also the best quality golf shirts that…

    The past few years have been significant for the world of golf shoes. We’ve seen a complete turnaround where more casual styles and spikeless models rival their traditional counterparts. We’ve seen the introduction of multiple models designed to balance style and performance while having the appearance of everyday street shoes. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite models of this season in an attempt to de-mystify many of the harder-to-find brands and give you some insight into many of the newer style with an eye and bias towards the walking golfer.

    I was extremely excited to test out the new Vapor Speed Driver, Fairway, and Hybrid after coming off of a full season with the Nike Covert 2.0 Pro line. The Vapor Speed is targeted as the most forgiving of the new Vapor line. I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a strong fan of the Volt colorway, but I am a huge fan of the work being done over the prior few years by Nike. The Vapor line doesn’t disappoint, although it took me a while to settle on an opinion of how strong the overall Vapor Speed lineup is.

    There are few things in life that I love more than golf products that are exceptionally and thoughtfully crafted. There are only a few companies in the golf industry that are on the constant pursuit of perfection and Miura is one of them. Reflections on Miura A few years ago, I reviewed the Miura CB-501 irons and was blown away. Discovering the feel of a solid strike with an exceptionally forged club is truly eye-opening, and reviewing the CB-501s was the first time that I had that experience. We’ve been keeping our eye on Miura and jump at any opportunity to get their products out on…

    We love the new driver from Tour Edge Golf, the Bazooka 460 Black. But we haven't even hit it! So why do we love it? Two reasons: It has a fixed head (it's non-adjustable); It's value-priced, coming in at a price point well below most other brand name drivers. Both of those things are becoming increasingly rare in the driver market, and that's too bad. Because the vast majority of golfers

    26 Aug 2015 | 1:59 pm
    Let the FedExCup Playoffs begin! We start out our 2015 postseason in Edison, New Jersey. The course is Plainfield Country Club. It’s one of the shorter tracks these pros will play all year, barely stretching out past 7,000 yards. The greens are large, but if we know anything about the course designer, Donald Ross, we know that doesn’t mean much. Ross is known for turtleback greens and creating many tiers on his greens. So, while these greens may be larger than average, I don’t think they will be easy to hit into or putt on. Strangely, they are also poa annua, which is rare…

    With the PGA Championship in the books, we’ve completed our four-pack of majors for the season. The next big event will be the FedExCup Playoffs. First, we head to Greenboro, North Carolina, for the final tournament of the 2014-15 regular season. The course is Sedgefield Country Club. It’s a classical par 70 track that plays just barely over 7,100 yards. Not lengthy by any means. The shorter hitters in the field may still hit a lot of drivers but many will opt to club down on plenty of holes. The course requires shot shaping off the tee. Much more so than most weeks on TOUR.

    Grab the SwingTalk on Amazon here. Over the last few years I’ve tested out numerous swing devices and gadgets, and never found one that I was 100% in love with. Because of this I was pretty excited to get hands on with one of the latest products to hit the market, the SwingTalk swing analyzer. There were a few aspects about this I was particularly excited about. The first is that rather than clicking onto the club shaft, or attaching to your glove, the sensor simply screws into the butt of your grip – which I find to be much less intrusive than other methods. The second was the…

However, on my trip I was visiting some of the most historic golf courses in the world, and they all seemed to have one thing in common: They all carried excessive amounts of Galvin Green in their pro shops. So here I am in the most storied places in golf, which also happen to be some of the wettest and windiest places in golf, and they all are selling the same brand. That should…

Maybe not though, I still believe he could have been up there, except for that disastrous eight he got on the infamous par-4 17th road hole. He proved that just last weekend with his first win on US soil at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational title in Ohio against some top names. Well played Shane. Rory’s back!

It has been a long time since Furyk last entered the winners enclosure, so long in fact, the last time he won (Tour Championship 2010), recent Masters champion Jordan Speith was still at school. Nearly five years and more than a 100 starts after that Tour Championship victory back in 2010, Furyk – with an excellent ball striking display – was finally able to end his losing streak.

    Best Exercise for Middle-aged Golfers If I had to chose one exercise that would help the majority of middle-aged golfers it would be the Deadlift. As TPI instructors say “Glutes are the king of the golf swing” But there are so many other reasons why the deadlift is the best golf exercise beside the fact it strengthens the gluteus maximus. For instance, let’s think about the exercise goals that most middle-aged people have: Fat lost Muscle gain Improved fitness What is the best way to lose fat? Grow lean muscle.

  • Why the USGA Limits Club Head Size

    16 Aug 2015 | 6:24 pm
    The video below will talk about two key physics concepts. Torque and moment of inertia and what they have to do with club head size. It really has nothing to do with golf fitness other than the faster and wider you can swing a club the more distance you will produce. The USGA limits club head size because a larger club head increases the moment of inertia and will produce straighter shots assuming all other parameters are the same. A large club head size will reduce the amount of torque, or twist, in the club shaft on off-center hits. It reduces the needed skill level of the golfer to hit it…
  • Produce Torque in the Golf Swing for More Distance

    13 Aug 2015 | 6:30 pm
    How many times have you heard a wider swing will allow you to hit the ball farther? Watch this video produced by NBC and the USGA to learn the science behind it. They explain the 3 physics concepts that will increase your distance: Torque, centripetal force, and the double pendulum effect. By increasing your mobility & stability your swing will produce torque and increase centripetal force. I friggin’ love science, especially when it involves golf! Making a wider swing is great in all, but it still is important to hit the ball square. So on the practice tee try to make a wider swing…
