    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…

    Uh, it's okay to tackle the guy. The Chargers found their way to Rams quarterback Shaun Hill and forced a fumble. San Diego linebacker Andrew Gachkar scooped it up and ran it in for a touchdown ... with a little help from a totally confused Rams offense. Apparently, Jeff Fisher hadn't explained to his young team the rule about live balls and turnovers judging by the amount of standing around they were doing. The one guy going after him? Tiny Tavon Austin.

Textbook back body drop. Then Arizona recovers, only to see Cooper Helfet run in and hit with a great running neckbreaker. It's almost an RKO, Randy Orton would be proud.

Elsewhere, the Ryan Mallett struggled in his second start with the Houston Texans, going just 21-for-45 passing in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Image Link Takes You To My Favorite Protein Powder Site! I received this email from a reader. They were reading the previous post where I talk about the importance of protein powder. Well, this golfer recently suffered an injury and says protein powder is one of the main things that keeps her going. Her story: “The next day marked the start of the golf season, or at least the time when the weather cooperated enough. Before any golf rounds were going to start, I had to help a friend lift his two reclining chairs. All of a sudden a pain shot up through my lower right back. This had…
  • Golf, Fitness, and Protein Powder Supplementation – Elevate Your Game

    28 May 2014 | 8:49 pm
    Golf is an interesting and complex sport. I came to realize that one can take a lifetime honing all the skills required for a stellar golf game–and not get very far. It dawned on me that a solid golf game can only be built with a consistent workout and healthy diet. Despite the many ideologies that golf is not an athletic sport, I beg to differ. I became a better golfer after realizing the significance of embracing protein supplements and a daily routine of workout. Going To The Gym This has been a positive way of maintaining my fitness.

  • Jack Nicklaus Is The Best Golfer Ever

    Robin
    24 May 2014 | 11:18 pm
    Jack Nicklaus earned multiple collegiate awards, won major championships, and competed against stiffer competition, which one may justify naming him as the best golfer of all time. Nicklaus started out dominating golf at the age of 19 by winning the United States Golf Amateur title, and repeated the feat at age 21. Nicklaus’ winning style won him over with his competitors; and importantly, in defeat, he was gracious giving credit to the victor versus pointing out what may have played against him from earning a win. During the first 13 years of his career, Nicklaus took home 12 major…

    There is a reason why golf watchers are amongst the most knowledgeable and respectful of crowds. From a spectator perspective the professional game is one of those rare things where just about everyone watching will have a deeply personal understanding of the game. Most audiences for televised sport are made up of people who rarely, if ever, have played their ‘chosen’ sport competitively.

    Nick Cullen celebrated the biggest win of his career. Photo: SMP Images SOUTH AUSTRALIA’S Nick Cullen has won the 2014 Australian Masters with a magical bunker shot on the last to deny Adam Scott a chance at hat-trick of Gold Jackets. Scott was the clubhouse leader on 8-under at the Metropolitan Golf Club – eventually with two others – and Cullen needed to par the last to finish on 9-under and stave off a playoff. When he put his approach into a greenside bunker things were looking dicey and the 30 year was faced with a must do nerve-wracking up and down. Doggedly, he put the ball to…

    Written By Dr Jerry Kennedy Golf is one of those things in life that can make a perfectly sane person go a little crazy.

I remember a few (ok, more than a few) years back I was hitting an aluminum shafted persimmon 3-wood (Yes, ALUMINUM!) and I could literally knock the buggers out of that thing – and this was not long after almost everyone was hitting metal woods.

January is the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando and having been a participant for the past 25 years, I know "the show" pretty well.

    Golf Tips & Instruction For The Mental Game

  • 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…

In fact, this is something you can practice during the off-season, when the weather isn’t good enough to get to the course.

  • 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…

Knowing that you have this review process in place will hopefully prevent you from judging your performance whilst you’re on the course. There are several key indicators to look out for.

  • Who will win the 2014 Masters golf?

    Rusty
    25 Mar 2014 | 4:54 am
    Tiger Woods may be the favourite to win the Masters next month in the eyes of bookmakers, but there is no getting around the fact that he does not represent the sure-fire bet that he once did for the majors. Certainly a lot of those interested in golf betting will be putting their cash on Tiger for the trophy, with 8/1 odds, but plenty more will be looking at other possible winners, instead of automatically opting for Woods. One possibility is Rory McIlroy, who has come on in leaps and bounds since his Masters hopes fell apart in 2011, and the bookies have him as 13/2 second favourite. Given…

  • Golf Club President Resigns Over Dress Code Fight With Club Guests

    Rob Harris

    By: Rob Harris In the words of Clint Eastwood, “a man’s got to know his limitations.” This man knows he is exceedingly unqualified to advise golf clubs, in this challenging membership environment, how to engender goodwill among members and their guests. However…. I have a strong belief that what recently occurred at Massachusetts’ Weston Golf Club is not the way to go about it. The full story can be read here. I offer a few excerpts: “What began on a Saturday night in September as an attempt by the Weston GC president to enforce the dress code among a…

For those who have questioned the wisdom of Vijay Singh’s seemingly quixotic lawsuit against the PGA Tour, a subpoena recently issued by the Tour reinforces their bewilderment. By now, everyone presumably is aware that Vijay claims unfair treatment by the Tour regarding the actions taken in response to his use of deer antler spray. With the litigation playing out like a slow motion car wreck, the Tour is seeking to obtain information from IMG, the management company that represents Vijay “concerning any agreement or potential agreement…

    13 Nov 2014 | 1:34 pm
    By: Rob Harris The attached article (which includes a copy of the federal court complaint) serves as a reminder to golf clubs that employee claims remain an ever present risk. The plaintiff alleges that she brought her accusations of harassment to the club, but she was promptly terminated. Assuming the case does not settle, the courts ultimately will determine whether this allegation (along with the claim of harassment) is factually accurate. While perhaps the club did conduct an internal investigation, that is not clear. The takeaway for golf clubs should be the importance of having…

    Are you about to host a golf tournament and in need of software to help make your life easier? Well Tournamatic is here to do just that.

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

    Image Courtesy of TourProGolfClubs If there’s one current golfer in the world who has the potential, at least, to join the list of the greatest golfers ever to have walked the world’s fairways, then it’s surely the young Ulsterman, Rory McIlroy. But to get there – he has to win the Masters at least once. McIlroy has already managed to do what only two other golfers have ever managed in winning three different Major championships by the young age of 25. And when you consider who those other two golfers were – you quickly understand why Rory McIlroy really could join the list of…

    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…

You know, like those little sharpeners schoolkids use for their pencils: insert pencil into hole, twist pencil, blade of sharpener shaves off pencil wood and sharpens the lead. Here's the thing about the ReTee's sharpener: It's pitched as a tee sharpener. Snap a long

But there's much more to "sexy" than just looks. In Cheyenne's case, there's a a poise, a composure, an obvious centeredness (under an intense spotlight not of her own making) that belies her youth.

    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…

    Jim Krivanek and Mike SimpsonMike Simpson and Jim Krivanek each holed out a shot in winning the 2014 Superman event at The Fairways at Twin Lakes on Sunday. The Superman format is one where each player hits two shots from each location in a 2-man scramble format, so there is a great opportunity to dial it in. But still, two hole outs? That’s something. Simpson holed out his second shot on the 7th hole, while Krivanek did the same on the 14th hole. Those two hole-outs were the difference in victory, as the pair won by two shots over season-long Twin Lakes beaters Mike Sampson and Ryan…

    I played a lineup last week but I couldn’t pull myself away from my beautiful new wife during our honeymoon to write a Week 11 article. My team was quite reasonably successful, I landed in 531st place out of 11,896 entries (95th percentile). It paid out 20 bucks, which is double what I put in. I was reasonably close to the higher payouts but just missed it. One of my best picks was Le’Veon Bell playing Monday night, he put up 29.2 points and brought me into the payout. Bell was valued at $8,600 and was worth it and only was played by 11.7% of the entries into this contest. A.J.
  • Future of Fantasy DraftKings Golf Tour Fall Series Review

    Charley Hoffman took home the bacon in Mexico as he won the OHL Classic at Mayakoba by one stroke over Shawn Stefani. The curly-haired assassin entered the tournament without a top 25 in his last nine starts, so it was somewhat of a surprise to see him in full form like that. He was fifth in my unadjusted power rankings, but fell way off the map due to his form. I clearly over adjusted in that case. Oops. The Mayakoba marks the end of the Fall Series and also marks the beginning of a six week break in action on the PGA TOUR. For those in this for the DFS action, don’t worry, there is…

Brings out the skill in fantasy games, particularly DFS. Heading south of the border, the PGA TOUR tees it up in Mexico this week for the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. It’s a par 71 track that is rather short, playing under 7,000 yards. The green sizes are just slightly larger than TOUR average, but nothing crazy big. The real fun is the grass type, Sea Isle Paspalum. This grass is not used in the US events,…

  • Carnoustie Golf Links

    Sean Ogle
    13 Nov 2014 | 9:33 am
    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 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!

    As we were finishing up our lunch with Chris Spencer at North Berwick, he told us to be careful on the drive up to Dornoch – we’d be traveling on the most dangerous road in Scotland. Great. Just what I wanted to hear. I swear leading up to this trip, every time I looked for a little reassurance as it relates to driving on the other side of the road, all I was met with were confirmations that, yes, I should be terrified. We knew going into the trip that the drive to Royal Dornoch would be the longest of the week, but given our later start from North Berwick we hit bad traffic, and the…

The current strategy at Callaway is to focus on innovation and they are focusing on innovation via speed with the 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…

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?
