    I think I can help you play better golf, but you’ll have to apply the concepts! I’m going to do something I thought I never would – offer golf advice. I know this is risky territory, after all who am I to be giving anyone golf advice. I’m not a pro and I’ve never taught. Heck, I’m not even a scratch player. On the other hand, I’ve been on a search for a competitive and repetitive golf swing for the last 10 years. I think I’ve tried most everything. I’ve hit them left, right, up and down. Which is only to say that I’ve suffered like…

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

    26 Apr 2015 | 8:23 pm
    Lydia Ko twice thought someone else would leave Lake Merced with the trophy this year. She was on the putting green listening for a cheer if Morgan Pressel were to make a 15-foot birdie putt in regulation to win the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. Ko heard nothing. In a playoff, she could only watch as Pressel stood over a 10-foot birdie putt for the win.

    (Reuters) - Lydia Ko secured a late birthday present when she birdied the second extra hole to beat American Morgan Pressel in a playoff at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in California on Sunday. "It's been a great birthday week again," Ko told the Golf Channel after sinking her winning putt from four feet at the Lake Merced course in San Francisco. "This week I hit the ball really well and it definitely makes this course a lot easier." Pressel, however, will be ruing the birthday gifts she offered Ko by squandering two chances for victory.

    Whatever derailed Justin Rose's game appears long gone now. Sensing he needed to birdie the final two holes to keep the lead, Rose pulled it off with aggressive swings and clutch putts for a one-stroke victory over Cameron Tringale on Sunday in the Zurich Classic. ''Earlier this year it looked impossible to win,'' Rose said, referring to his three missed cuts and failure to finish better than 37th in his first five starts of 2015. ''I'm very happy to have turned my game around.'' Rose completed a 7-under 65 in the rain-delayed third round Sunday morning and closed with a 66 at TPC Louisiana…

    The series is heading back to Houston for Game 5 after the Mavericks earned a big win Sunday night. The Dallas Mavericks kept their season alive in emphatic fashion with a 121-109 Game 4 win over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night. The team now trails in the first-round series, 3-1, as it looks to make NBA history by becoming the first to rally from a 3-0 deficit. We saw two other teams finish off sweeps Sunday, but Dallas wouldn't let that happen at home against a state rival. The Mavericks outscored the Rockets over the second and third quarters, 69-41, and used that dominant stretch to…

    Six days ago, at the start of Masters week, it was anyone's guess.  It always is, early on.That the final round leaderboard features such names as Woods, McIlroy, Mickelson and Spieth is certainly enough to satisfy the highest hopes of many. While the Woods-McIlroy pairing probably packs the highest level of star power, Jordan Spieth's dominance during the first three rounds... and his history-making potential to break Tiger Woods' 72-hole record... has the world rather riveted. To say the least.Today promises to be a fabulous final round, one that'll most definitely be remembered,…

One of them was Ralph Guldahl and this odd anecdote about the major champion. Though Ralph [Guldahl] was one of the slowest players on the tour, from 1936 to 1938 he was also a great player, winning the Western Open three times and the U.S. Open twice ....

    In the world of playing golf with any consistency you have to consider two points; 1. The start line and 2. The amount of curve If you are starting the ball in a different direction with every swing then how can you aim?  Two way misses don’t give us very much consistency.  But once you have a consistent start line then you can work on the amount of curve. The start line, where the golf ball is starting its flight, is controlled primarily by where the clubface is pointing at Impact.  So if you want the ball to start right then you had better have the clubface pointed right at…

    Today we are going to discuss fat and thin golf shots. Fat and Thin shots…causes – changes in the radius, off plane motion, ball location and pressure at Impact. Changing the radius in the golf swing can, and usually does, change the delivery angle – angle of descent – into the golf ball.  The radius can be changed by bending the left wrist, the left elbow, raising the upper thoracic – which in turn raises the head. Other causes of these types of shots can be the angles of approach into the golf ball as well.  Too far under plane shallows the angle of descent and too far over…

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…

    Here at PutterZone, we focus on the putting green, not the tee box. However, we also love entrepreneurial golf stories, and the fact is that you can’t get to the green without first teeing off. Which brings us to today’s Insider Interview with Chris Jackson, inventor of the new Revolution Tee, an aptly named golf tee that aims to change how you think about teeing off. Not only does the Revolution Tee offer unbreakable durability, it’s also said to add yards to your drive. Chris grew up as a sports enthusiast, but didn’t get the golf bug until his early twenties.

Through a new theory of the short wedge shot -- which the author calls "A Finesse Swing" --, an attitudinal adjustment, and a rigorous, if not necessarily lengthy practice regimen, Sieckmann offers a cohesive & coherent plan. His swing theory is difficult to summarize, and his students have described it as "awkward, at first", so like so much golf instruction, this is the kind of thing that would ruin…

    3.5 Years...Really? It seems almost unfathomable, but it's been 3.5 years since we took a close look at a set of Miura irons. That's the thing about Miura...in a time where even the most conservative of golf companies is releasing irons on a predictable 2-year cycle, Miura seems oblivious to the calendar. Miura designs are timeless and the company's release cycles reflect that. New products are released only when there is a reason, and only when they are absolutely ready.

It's cool to see new gear, but if you want the simple answer to the question of what the pros play, I'll give it to you straight. The pros play what they're paid to play, with very few exceptions.

If you missed it, it's definitely worth checking out as the fitting results alone suggest that basically everyone who hasn't been fit for a putter is probably playing the wrong putter. Today we dig in a little deeper to see what impact a fitted putter has on actual performance. We can talk about fitting all day, right? Everyone should get fit. We say that all the time, but the ugly truth about fitting is that it only actually matters if…

Those two stats and a trip to the PING Golf Headquarters were the perfect formula for our latest installment of MyGolfSpy Labs. We asked the PING R&D team two simple questions: A) Do putter fittings make a difference for the average golfer?  B) How do we make this test happen to once and for all find out that answer.   MGS…

    25 Apr 2015 | 8:50 am
    I think I can help you play better golf, but you’ll have to apply the concepts! I’m going to do something I thought I never would – offer golf advice. I know this is risky territory, after all who am I to be giving anyone golf advice. I’m not a pro and I’ve never taught. Heck, I’m not even a scratch player. On the other hand, I’ve been on a search for a competitive and repetitive golf swing for the last 10 years. I think I’ve tried most everything. I’ve hit them left, right, up and down. Which is only to say that I’ve suffered like…
  • Golf Performance Nutrition: Eggs

    Doug
    23 Apr 2015 | 4:51 am
      Whole eggs from healthy fowl are one of the most nutritious foods on earth but are all eggs really the same? I have a full chapter on “Golf Power Nutrition” in my new book, 101 Ways to Increase Your Golf Power and wanted to talk about just one “Power Nutrition” tip today. I know, many (misled) nutritionists (and doctors) have conned us into staying away from eggs because they contain cholesterol and saturated fat. But we know about good fats and bad ones, right? Even a recent Harvard study found healthy men and women could eat seven (yes 7!) eggs a day with no increased risk of…
  • Perfect Tee-Height with Tee Tac

    Doug
    16 Apr 2015 | 5:32 am
    I came upon this unique golf product recently called, Tee Tac, which allows you to set a consistent ball height EVERY time. WHY DO WE NEED IT I guess the first question that might come to mind is “Why do we care about setting our golf ball height anyway?” Of course, the answer is consistency but what does that actually mean. Say, for example, you normally hit your driver 220 yards on the fly. If you hit it just half an inch (or 1.27 centimeters) off center (toward the toe or heel) you lose roughly 10 yards, three quarters of an inch (1.905 centimeters) you lose 15 yards; and so forth. So…

He works with PGA pros like, Ben Crane, Charlie Wi, Cameron Triangle and Jeff Overton among others. He has also been a Tour player himself, knew Seve Ballesteros and has studied, in depth, all the best short game players who have ever played the game. This chapter was a real eye-opener for me. He showed me how important our thinking really is on the course. I asked him, point blank, “Can our thinking REALLY change our game?” Sorry to keep…

    Would you like to win $1,000,000 watching the Master’s. Sounds good to me, maybe it does for you, too. The fee to pick your own team with the chance to win $1M is $20 – not a bad deal. There’s been some chatter about Fantasy golf the last few weeks in a number of Google+ Groups I’m involved with. I used to play a little bit. I actually won $100 the very first time I played but slid downhill and lost some interest in it. I have heard about DraftKings before but, again, was not that interested in being involved.

    In 2 previous blog posts, I looked at some of the issues that could be impacting on the declining participation of women in golf.  As I’ve found out in many years of marriage, women think differently from men, and men shouldn’t automatically assume that what works for them also works for women.  Unfortunately, the golf industry is largely run by men. 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.

    Golf is like any other sport in that mental strength is essential for success. Indeed, sometimes it is all that matters when it comes to winning or losing. If you learn to develop the correct mentality and to turn your weaknesses into strengths, you can increase your chances of winning. So think of mental toughness as a skill that you need to work on and develop, and then use it to your advantage when you are under pressure. Here are some ways to get your brain in the game.

  • How Jordan Spieth Won The Masters With His Mental Game

    David MacKenzie
    13 Apr 2015 | 12:12 pm
    What an incredible 4 days of golf! Or more to the point, what an incredible performance by the 2nd youngest Masters winner in history, Jordan Spieth. After breaking numerous scoring records along the way, and becoming only the 5th player in history to lead for all 4 rounds, no one can argue that Jordan Spieth not only won the Green Jacket yesterday, he also won the mental game. At the age of 21, this is even more impressive. Nick Faldo said this week that he has “the mental strength of Jack Nicklaus”. Jordan started to learn the mental game at a young age. He met his current coach,…

Overcoming a 6 shot deficit with a 64 (he was an incredible 7 under through 8 holes) his final round spoke volumes about the strength of his mental game and his character. We’ve known from the start that JB was a massive talent (the quickest player on Tour to reach $1mn in earnings) but the extent of his mental toughness is really coming to light this season. A little over a year ago JB was ranked over 509th in the world. A brain surgery that threatened his career and injuries to his ankle and elbow, took him out of contention for several…

    Performing well when it counts is what golf is all about. It’s safe to say that all golfers want to reach the level where they’re holing putts to win in big events. But what does it really take to become a competitive golfer at the very highest level? A good swing is not enough. In fact, even average physical skills are capable of winning majors. There’s one factor that all the greats of the game have in common and I’m sure you’ve heard of it. It’s called “mental toughness”. What is mental toughness for golf?

  • Top 10 - NHL Golfers

    Scott Stevens
    22 Apr 2015 | 8:39 am
    One could argue that NHL hockey players should be terrific golfers. Their off season is peak time for golfing. The only thing preventing a good 3-4 months out on the links would be a deep playoff run chasing Lord Stanley’s Cup.While the golf swing is different from a slap shot, there are similarities in the weight shift as well as the inside angle of attack. Perhaps the most significant similarity between professional golfers and NHLers is the necessity to possess soft hands. Gracefully cradling a puck prepares many for stepping onto the course and using that feel to execute the wide…

At the same time, established veterans are teaching that experience is an invaluable asset to possess when earning a place in the winner’s circle. This week’s Zurich Classic is sure to…

    Yes, those are Brussels sprouts you see flying in the screengrab above - poor, innocent Brussels sprouts. Oh, sure, they are among the most-hated vegetables by people who, well, hate vegetables.

Rumors of a McIlroy-Stoll romance first cropped up in early 2015, but something that just happened is pretty much the confirmation that they are dating. And what was that? McIlroy ventured to Rochester, New York, for a date with Stoll, who is from the area. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle newspaper reported

    Now this is how you git-r-done in golf: LPGA rookie Sei Young Kim - already a winner once in 2015 - trailed Inbee Park by one shot on the last green at the 2015 LOTTE Championship. Kim was off the green chipping, and had to hole it to force a playoff. So she holed it. And, on the first playoff hole, she holed it again - only the second time from over 150 yards for a tournament winning eagle.

    You know the Masters theme song, right? That's the instrumental music that plays at the start of every Masters TV broadcast on CBS. That song has a name - Augusta (surprise, surprise) - and it was composed by Dave Loggins. But the TV version every golf fan knows doesn't have any words: The opening strains of that music send a tingle through many a golfer. Lots of golfers have even used the

    The weather cooperated and the golf course was in fantastic condition as the Zoar Village Golf Course held its Spring 2-Man Scramble on Saturday, April 26. A field of 34 teams competed in the tournament, and two teams came out tied at the top. Michael Renner and Andy Slaman tied the team of Preston Robinette and Joey Kurtz for first place at solid score of 8-under par 64, with each team earning $250.

    Under what can only be described as brutal cold conditions at Little Mountain Country Club, birdies were scarce and a par proved profitable. Twelve players braved the weather, with three skins won on the night. Newcomer George Smiltins of Ohio City grabbed the first skin with a twelve foot birdie putt on the par four 11th hole. Mike Angie also got on the 2015 Leaderboard with a birdie skin on the par four 15th hole. Phil Bojc ended the night stealing a skin with a PAR on the long par four 18th hole. Skins paid $92 each.

Basically…and truthfully…appearance plays a huge part of what influences people online to do anything.  Whether it is to Follow Someone, buy something or just get someone to look at something..if the person, place or thing has a ‘Good’ appearance it will influence others to take action.  I could end this blog here since anything else said about what influences people online would be moot.

    There is nothing wrong with instilling a love of golf from an early age (especially perhaps if you are hoping to raise the next Tiger Woods or Michelle Wie) and apart from signing the kiddies up for junior golf as soon as they are old enough you can take advantage of the fact that even toddlers seem to be able to master a smartphone quickly (often these days before they can really read properly it seems) by introducing them to one of these fun to play golf game apps that you should find rather enjoyable as well.

    Two time Masters Champion Bubba Watson is one of the longest drivers in the professional game today. His 2015 average is 310.3 yards (second only to Dustin Johnson’s 315.1) and Bubba has been clocked generating ball speeds of up to 194 mph (312 km/h). So what is it about the Bubba Watson swing that makes him such a powerful driving force?

    For some reason it often seems that non golfers fail to recognize the importance of fitness and conditioning in golf, dismissing the game as a bunch of blokes (or ladies) walking around swinging a stick and how fit do you have to be to do that? Obviously golfers know that the reality is very different and that fitness is as important in golf as it is in any other sport. And as is the case for any other sport there are an ever growing number of smartphone and tablet apps designed to help golfers meet and track their fitness goals.

Over the course of his career Hogan won nine career professional championships and became the first (and only until Tiger Woods in 2000) golfer to win three major championships in a single year. He was also one of the first players to become openly interested in the mechanics of the swing, writing about it on numerous occasions including in his iconic book ‘Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf’.

    Welcome to NOLA baby! After you stuff your face with some cajun food, head over to TPC Louisiana for this week’s Zurich Classic. The course is a lengthy par 72 venue where fairway bunkers are a nuisance to players but the greens is rather generous. *are* generous if we’re talkin’ all proper and stuff. The greens roll pure and don’t have any tricks up their sleeves. That leads us to favor tee-to-green players this week. The key stats I’m looking at this week are par 5 scoring, strokes gained:tee-to-green, and efficiency from 200+ yards. There are also 6 to 8 shots…

In this episode I will talk about the RBC Heritage which is played on Hilton Head Island. The course is Harbour Town Golf Links. It’s a short course, but don’t let that fool you. It’s one of the hardest tests all year. Particularly difficult since they added an extra 130 yards back in 2012. The fairways are tight, but not difficult to hit. The problem will be positioning off the tee for many golfers. Many of the holes force you to club down and…

I don’t know about you, but for me, I feel like one of the coolest things for any golfer to have is an at home simulator in their living room or man cave. You watch Michael Breed on Morning Drive, and you’re just like, “man that looks cool! I want one of those!” Especially those of you on the east coast right now.

    Jim Furyk ended the long wait for his 17th PGA tour title as he secured a play-off victory at the RBC Heritage. 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. On the final day at the Harbour Town Golf Links, Furyk was in fine form, carding no fewer…

    Having won the Masters back in 2012 (his first major) Bubba Watson, regained the green jacket just two years later in the 2014 renewal. Finishing eight under par for the tournament, three shots in front of runner up Jonas Blixt. A year on, and Watson – currently a solid 11/1 third favourite in the ante-post market – could be set to thrive once more. Anyone who follows golf closely will know, that at the Masters, players with plenty of course experience have a significant advantage over those who are less experienced or playing the tournament for the first time.

Phil Mickelson (30/1) – Ahead of Augusta’s showpiece event, four time Major winner, Phil Mickelson looks well worth an each-way bet.

At just 25, Rory McIlroy has already shown the golfing world he’s got all the qualities of a potential great, and having already captured three of the four majors titles it would appear that he is well on his way to earning that status.

As the final day got under way, it was fellow American Bubba Watson who made the early move, racing into the lead following three birdies from the first four holes. Watson then added another at the seventh, and it…
