    In a two-pronged attempt to cash out on the golf business in a significant way, the management at Tam O’Shanter Golf Course in Canton is looking to sell the ‘better’ portion of its golf course property — the Dales Course — to real estate developers and at the same time is trying to get the regional park district to purchase as ‘green space’ another portion of the property. The following email was sent today by Chuck Bennell, President of Tam O’Shanter Company, to subscribers of the course’s email newsletter explaining their efforts to generate…
  • Does Trump International Golf Links Live Up to It’s Lofty Expectations?

    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…

    SeeMore Putters out of Franklin, Tennessee has my attention with their soon to be release Giant FGP putter."The GIANT FGP started off as a project to create a putter that took everything we knew about putter technology, alignment, and the perfect putting stroke, and enhanced it in every way possible," stated Jim Grundberg, CEO. "What we ended up with is a design that is very familiar, yet shockingly different at the same time. We literally created a giant size FGP, which functions exactly like the original FGP, just better. It is easier to align, more forgiving, better balanced, and feels…

  • Super Bowl 2015: Tom Brady says DeflateGate hurt his feelings

    Adam Stites
    26 Jan 2015 | 7:26 am
    Brady says the criticism he received from DeflateGate hurt his feelings, but he's putting it behind him now to fully focus on the Super Bowl. A week ago on his weekly radio appearance, Tom Brady laughed off the possibility of deflated balls aiding the New England Patriots in a victory over the Indianapolis Colts the AFC Championship. This week on WEEI's The Dennis & Callahan Show, Brady was a lot more solemn when discussing DeflateGate. Shortly after the AFC Championship, it was reported by Chris Mortensen of ESPN that 11 of the 12 game balls provided by the Patriots were found to be…

    The age of super teams may not be over just yet. Golden State's cap management could prove a model for up and coming teams in the future. The Golden State Warriors have exceeded all expectations to this point. They have the best record in the NBA and a 5.5-game cushion in the West. Stephen Curry has evolved into the MVP favorite, Klay Thompson has become a likely All-Star and Draymond Green has become a true stud. The Warriors have a wonderful mix of youth and experience. Their legacy will be set months from now in the postseason, but so far, so good. The NBA is a salary capped league, and…

    The repercussions of another scandal swirling around the Patriots have everyone around the league nervous. Nothing here, no "see, hear or speak" that explains DeflateGate, the New England Patriots insist as they arrive in Phoenix for Super Bowl 49. Keep it moving, they implore, and let's all get ready for the season's prime game. It will not work. The clouds that covered the Patriots in Massachusetts followed them to Arizona. Because 11 of 12 Patriots' game balls for the AFC Championship were found deflated and none of the Indianapolis Colts' 12 were, the Patriots cannot deflate the scrutiny.

Dubbed the Hypervenom Liquid Diamond, Neymar's new boots from Nike are a direct reference to the tattoo found on the player's left arm. The large diamond has the word "sorella" above it, which is Portuguese for "sister."  Neymar's sister, Rafaella, has the same tattoo with "fratello" above hers, linking her to her brother. "The diamond tattoo I've got was done with my sister. We thought we'd get one done together because diamonds are rare and the feelings I have for my sister are rare, so we decided to…

    With over 2000 golf courses in the UK, it can be challenging to find the best golf club to play at. There are several factors that make a golf course great: the condition of the course, the design and variety of each hole, a sense of history, and the scenery… even just the very feel of the course can have a play in your fondness towards it. Finding a golf course with all these qualities can be tough, so a great way to start is by using a course finder such as the Gamola Golf Course Finder, which allows you to search by town or postcode to find golf courses local to your area.

  • Why Links Golf Courses Are The Best To Play

    Mike
    19 Jul 2014 | 9:19 am
      When we think of the British Open we think of history, we think of the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Gary Player, and of course the likes of St Andrews, Royal St George’s and Muirfield. This year the circuit’s oldest major has arrived in Hoylake at Royal Liverpool, but what makes this tournament, and in particularly links golf, so special? Firstly, it’s unpredictable. US Open Champion Martin Kaymer recently said that “there’s never really a standard gold shot” on the links, and that’s true. The many factors of links, means each day can be different, and knowing the…

  • The Talk of 2014

    paul
    8 Jan 2015 | 11:13 am
    As we look back on another fascinating golf season, there have been some significant performances throughout the year that have really stood out. While Rory McIlroy continued his dominance at the top of the rankings, Tiger Woods’ problems showed no signs of disappearing and Martin Kaymer demonstrated he is still a force to be reckoned with. But what have been the main talking points from 2014? Rory’s form While there weren’t many writing off Rory McIlroy at the end of a tough 2013, it’s fair to say the Northern Irishman had lost some of the aura that surrounded him following an…
  • USA hit by Ryder Cup injuries

    14 Sep 2014 | 12:45 pm
    USA captain Tom Watson has been dealt a number of injury headaches ahead of next month’s Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. With Europe heading into the event as the firm favourites with online bookmakers like bet365 and Betfair, it’s far from ideal for the USA to see some key players struggling with their fitness over the past couple of months. With time running out for Watson and his assistants to assemble a line-up they feel can wrestle the Ryder Cup trophy from Europe’s grasp, the American captain will be wondering what sort of team he’s going to be able to name. Matt Kuchar has been the…
  • Missing Tiger

    paul
    25 Apr 2014 | 4:38 pm
    With Tiger Woods missing the recent Masters for the first time in his professional career after surgery to a pinched nerve in his back, the professional Golf World is asking itself what his permanent absence might mean to the sport. Tiger’s worth to the game has been calculated at $15bn, which is based on historical data of declining ticket receipts and lower TV ratings (25% to 30% drop) when he has missed tournaments. The inescapable truth is that without Tiger Woods the game is not as interesting and people literally switch off. Despite Tiger’s recent misdemeanors off the course…

    Graeme McDowell was simply giving his opinion on where Tiger Woods’ game is right now but the Northern Irishman seems to have been caught up in quite the frenzy ahead of the Masters in early April. Of course the world number one Woods is there or thereabouts at the top of the markets when you bet on golf and will be there once again when the major at Augusta comes around. But surely it’s fair to say the Tiger we see on the course now is not a player as formidable as the man who won 14 major titles in a storming start to his career. Few would criticise a football pundit for saying…

The Open winner has been struggling with a back problem over the past couple of weeks but was keen to play in Arizona, the State where he went to university in 1992. 12 months ago, Mickelson hit a round of 60 on the Thursday of this event which set him up for the tournament win for Betfair backers.

That’s right, upon contact with the ball, the J-Flex putter will actually flex slightly on miss-hits to create a compensating correction. The company’s bold declaration is that it’s “the most forgiving putter in the world.” Says J-Flex’s Rick Gehman, “Think about it like a rubberband. If you stretch a rubberband…

On that note, sun exposure should be a key concern for golfers of any age, to mitigate the chances of melanoma or other forms of skin cancer. We’ve all heard about the importance of sunscreen.

Handheld Golf GPS units may all appear to be nearly identical on the surface outside of screen size, but when you start to dig in and ask, why would a golfer use this, the test results quickly separate the winners. Your biggest question this year for handheld GPS won't come down to accuracy or number of courses loaded, but will come down to if you want a small, medium or large screen and if you'd prefer to do software/map updates via wifi or through USB interface. * Note: in general all GPS devices access the same satellites, so…

    (Franklin, TN) - The SeeMore Putter Company is launching the next giant thing in golf. The GIANT FGP. "The GIANT FGP started off as a project to create a putter that took everything we knew about putter technology, alignment, and the perfect putting stroke, and enhanced it in every way possible," stated Jim Grundberg, CEO. "What we ended up with is a design that is very familiar, yet shockingly different at the same time. We literally created a giant size FGP, which functions exactly like the original FGP, just better. It is easier to align, more forgiving, better balanced, and feels great.

      THE Miguel Angel Jimenez legend continues to grow with the Spanish golfer tagged as “the world’s most interesting man” winning the season opening event on the 2015 US Champions Tour. Jimenez rallied at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai in Hawaii with six birdies in his final nine holes for a one-stroke victory over America’s Mark O’Meara. The 51 year old Spaniard closed with a 6-under 66 for his second victory in just three career starts on the 50-and-over tour. He broke a tie with O’Meara with a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th. “It was…

    BILL HAAS was more surprised than anyone to win the Humana Challenge for the second time on the weekend. “If you would have told me I would have done this last week, I would have laughed at you,” the American golfer said of what was his sixth US PGA Tour victory. Haas shot a 5-under par 67 in the final round at the PGA West (Palmer Course) in California to beat five other golfers by a single stroke on what was a very crowded leaderboard. Haas finished on 22-under for his first win since the 2013 Quicken Loans National. Fellow Americans Charley Hoffman, Brendan Steele, Steve Wheatcroft and…

    SOUTH AFRICA’S Branden Grace held off a spirited challenge from Scotland’s Marc Warren to land his sixth European Tour title at the 2015 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters on the weekend. In the final round at the Doha Gold Club Grace produced the day’s moment of magic for the second day running  – a drive to five feet on the par four 16th setting up a decisive eagle as he shot a 6-under 66 for a 19 under par total. That followed a miraculous snap-hook wedge from the trees at the fifth in the third round, where the resulting birdie set up a 68 going into the final day after a shaky start.

  • How to Become a Warrior-Sage on the Golf Course

    Doug
    7 Jan 2015 | 10:25 am
    We all know our thinking creates our reality, but have you ever “thought” about how this can be influencing your golf game? And I mean from a deeper level than just thinking “Hey, let’s make a good swing here” or “I see the ball going in the hole” type of thing. Warrior-Sages have a Zen-like way of detaching from events. They don’t get overly emotionally involved. They don’t have a constant need to know. They are happy to just settle in the present. They quietly put in the work and slowly built that internal power and fortitude. What exactly is a Warrior-Sage? A Warrior is 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,…

    Now that’s it’s getting, let’s just say, a bit chilly here in the Northeast, maybe it’s time to head to the land of cacti, desert and immaculate fairways and greens – somewhere like Arizona, perhaps? For those who have never played desert golf it’s a truly memorable experience. Particularly for those who are not native to the area. I’m from the Northeast (MA) and to visit Arizona sometimes feels like another planet — just because the landscape is so different. It’s such a visual treat for the eyes, the feel of the heat, the beautiful fragrance of the local flowers,…

    Golf Tips & Instruction For The Mental Game

  • Proof The Where Your Focus Is During A Shot Affects Your Accuracy

    David MacKenzie
    15 Jan 2015 | 10:40 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 Golf Course (yes, really)

    David MacKenzie
    15 Jan 2015 | 9:39 am
    One major difference between good and inconsistent performance among golfers is 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. “Swing motion at its highest level is the uninterrupted flow of natural rhythm from within.” –Tom Woods Accessing the…

  • The Tour Player Secret To Better Ball Striking

    David MacKenzie
    10 Jan 2015 | 5:07 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? Is hitting the ball thin not because you lift your head up, but because your eyes are looking at the top of the ball. And…

    Donald Ross is at the top of the list of those that have had a significant impact on the game of golf. With approximately 400 designs comprising his golf architecture portfolio – there’s no doubt that Donald Ross has had a significant impact on golf. Despite a career as an accomplished golfer, club designer,  designer of prolific golf courses, and inventor of the profession of golf course architecture – relatively few deep dives into his life have been published. If you’re interested in learning more about Donald Ross and his journey that led to one of the most…

    Jan Craig began crafting her headcovers in the early 60′s as a means for paying for the Craig’s annual anniversary trip to Pinehurst. The company grew from making headcovers for friends to setting up shop in the garage to their current arrangement of employing home-based knitters across the United States. There’s a lot to love about Jan Craig headcovers and I highly suggest you have your own custom set hand-crafted. The joy of owning a set of Jan Craig headcovers can be boiled down to exquisite style, deep quality, and excellent craftsmanship. Exquisite Style Let’s…

    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…

    Dixie Red Hills is a great setting for golf course, but then again St. George is an all around great setting for golf in southern Utah with its red sandstone cliffs and land formations.

    Mr. Top Five Patty Reed took home the bacon last week and now we stay in Hawaii for this week’s Sony Open. The course is Waialae Country Club which plays as a par 70 and is a little short by PGA TOUR standards. At just 7,044 yards it gets classified as a short course in my book and also in my spreadsheets. The fairways are narrow, the exact opposite of last week. The greens are bermudagrass and basically TOUR average at 6,500 square feet. The bermuda factor usually comes into play here as the greens are quite grainy. For more info on the course and history of this event, check out the…

    Patrick Reed put last week in the record books with a bang, taking down Jimmy Walker in a playoff. Now we stay in Hawaii for the first full-field event of the calendar year. Keep your eyes out for the full preview tomorrow but first let’s have a look at some DraftKings options. Short Course Studs Matt Kuchar ($12,600) … Six top 10s in last 14 short course events. Jimmy Walker ($13,700) … Five top 10s in last 10 short course events, including two wins. K.J. Choi ($5,900) … Nine top 40s in last 13 short course tournaments.

  • 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…
  • Round 4 Putters: The Best Putter You’ve Never Heard Of?

    Sean Ogle
    12 Jan 2015 | 9:09 am
    Up until recently I’ve never been a good enough golfer to take my gear that seriously. I was an 18ish handicap, who played once a month, and really believed my clubs didn’t make that much of a difference. That has changed this year, as I’m sitting on 100 rounds year to date, and my handicap has dropped to around a 10. Slowly but surely I’ve come to the realization that an upgrade in my clubs was going to be necessary across the board if I wanted to continue to make strides in my game. One of the most crucial things I needed was a new putter. I’ve had the same…
  • Shooting the Best Round of My Life at Pinehurst #2

    Sean Ogle
    23 Dec 2014 | 10:47 am
    I thought my golf season was over for the year – or at least the quest for top 100 courses. That is, until I got an email inviting me to a business conference in Charlotte, North Carolina in October. It’d prove to be easy to tack onto the end of my trip to New York City, so I figured why not. Of course, that easy two days quickly devolved into a full week after I realized that Pinehurst was a short 2 hour drive from where I’d be staying. Simply put Pinehurst #2 is one of the most famous and history rich courses in the world. It’s hosted every major tournament, and…

One of the coolest parts of this blog has been the “you should meet” factor… The more I’ve established myself here, the more I talk to people who say things like “you should meet so and so”. The latest example of this was an introduction my buddy Al made to Alex Holderness and John Bourne. The pair met at grad school in Yale, both went into finance, and last year left their positions to focus full time on their refined golf gear and apparel business Holderness…
  • 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…
