    The Blue Bay LPGA starts in about 12 hours.  For the players in the field, it's a great opportunity to take advantage of the absence of the LPGAers in the running for best 2014 in the world of women's professional golf, Stacy Lewis and Inbee Park (who, BTW, are tied atop the Rolex Rankings), not to mention Suzann Pettersen (who's gotten a huge percentage of her career victory total on tour in Asia), So Yeon Ryu, Na Yeon Choi, and others Tony Jesselli mentions in his tournament preview.  For me, it's one of my last chances to get back in contention in the race to win the season-long…

    Webb SimpsonWEBB SIMPSON, WHO RECENTLY SAID the 2014 Ryder Cup was a "terrible experience," finished T4 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. With four rounds in the 60s, Simpson finished 15 under for the tournament, five shots behind Ben Martin, who collected his first win on the PGA Tour in his 58th start.Simpson has been using a belly putter since his collegiate days at Wake Forest a decade ago, but the four-time PGA Tour winner and 2012 U.S. Open champions is mindful that change is coming in 14 months.

    So far, the title for best 2014 in women's golf is down to 8 golfers.  Each has at least 3 worldwide wins on major women's professional tours.  As impressive as Stacy Lewis has been, her difficulty in sealing the deal has opened the door to some golfers who have been racking up wins of late.  Still, Stacy's still my #1 candidate:Stacy Lewis (3):  North Texas LPGA Shootout (May); ShopRite LPGA Classic (June); Walmart NW Arkansas Championship (June)Hyo Joo Kim (5):  Kia Motors Korean Women's Open (June); Kumho Tire Women's Open (July); Hanwha…

    Kyu Jung Baek turned 19 on October 15th but could celebrate her birthday only with an opening 74 at the LPGA KEB-HanaBank Championship.  Yet with maturity beyond her years she figured out how to handle the winds and the Sky 72 Ocean course and her own balky back as she bounced back with rounds of 69, 68, and 67.  Her final-round back-9 31 included 5 birdies in a row and was so good that she even gave herself a chance to sink a curling downhill 6-footer on the par-5 18th for the win.  Even though she missed that putt, Baek succeeded in forcing her way into a playoff at…
  • Fujitsu Ladies Sunday: Sun-Ju Ahn Prevails Over Sakura Yokomine and Erika Kikuchi in Playoff

    Sun-Ju Ahn got her 2nd JLPGA victory in a row, bringing her season total to 5 and career total to 18, by triumphing over Sakura Yokomine and Erika Kikuchi with a birdie on the 1st playoff hole that earned her the Fujitsu Ladies title.The golfer I'm trying to get everyone to recognize as "Knockout" saved her best punch for last, but for a long time it looked like she had thrown away the tournament.  When Ahn made 3 bogeys in a 5-hole stretch midway through the front 9, she dropped to -9 and gave the lead to Kikuchi, who kept it even after bogeying the 193-yard par-3 8th to fall back…

  • Watch Out for Fliers

    10 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Knowing when a flier is possible can be the difference between a birdie and a bogey or even worse! The first indicator of whether the shot maybe a flier is the length of the grass your ball is in. If your ball is in taller than normal grass like rough there is a good chance it could be a flier. It only has to be tall enough to be able to get in between your ball and clubface. Another indicator is the wetness of the area around your ball. If enough moisture gets between the ball and the clubface this can also create a flier. Once you know that the shot may turn into a flier, now you need to…
  • Chip Shots vs. Pitch Shots

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Chip Shot A chip shot is meant to be a low trajectory shot with minimal spin. The goal is to get the ball on the green as soon as possible and have the ball roll to the hole like a putt. To hit a chip shot you want to use as little wrists and possible almost like a putt. The club head should never get above your hands. Pitch Shot A pitch shot is meant to be a higher trajectory shot with more spin. The goal is to land the ball closer to the hole and due to the spin and trajectory the ball will stop closer to the original spot at which the ball landed. To hit a pitch shot you now want to use…
  • Playing in the Wind

    20 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Against The Wind Playing into the wind will typically decrease distance and increase spin. This creates a shot that will go shorter and stop sooner than a usual shot. Playing into the wind will also in magnify certain shots. For example, a cut may turn into a slice or a draw may turn into a hook. Strategies for playing against the wind involve… Moving the ball back in the stance to create a lower trajectory Playing a stronger club to compensate for the lost distance During the forward swing make sure your hands are well ahead of the ball at impact to create lower trajectory With The…
  • Defining the Teeing Ground

    10 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    According to the USGA the definition of the teeing ground is: “The starting place for the hole to be played. It is a rectangular area two club-lengths in depth, the front and the sides of which are defined by the outside limits of two tee-markers. A ball is outside the teeing ground when all of it lies outside the teeing ground. When a player is putting a ball into play from the teeing ground, it must be played from within the teeing ground and from the surface of the ground or from a conforming tee in or on the surface of the ground.” Although the ball has to be inside the teeing…
  • Did You Address the Ball?

    1 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    The USGA says “A player has “addressed the ball” when he has grounded his club immediately in front of or immediately behind the ball, whether or not he has taken his stance.” This means you can take a stroke and strike the ball without ever actually addressing the ball. There are already a few times that you may have done this without ever knowing it. For example, while hitting the ball out of the bunker, or hitting the ball out of a lateral or water hazard. This can come in handy in a situation when you think that the ball may move by grounding the club or by other…

  • Ned Yost's aggressive, optimal managing helps Royals to Game 2 win

    Marc Normandin
    22 Oct 2014 | 8:51 pm
    Ned Yost started managing for Game 2 before Game 1 had even finished, and it helped lead to a Royals win and a tied World Series. Game 2 of the World Series was about as much of a must-win of a situation for the Royals as you can get without it being an elimination game. As it is, teams who have won the first game of the World Series have a 70-39 record in the Fall Classic, so dropping Game 2, while not an impossible hole to dig out of, would have made things difficult for Kansas City. Royals manager Ned Yost responded appropriately, going all out with his managing style before Game 2 even…

    JASON DUFNER is back from injury and was feeling frisky enough to kick an AFL football around ahead of the 2014 Perth International. The American major winner will join a very solid field for the European Tour co-sanctioned event at Lake Karrinyup Country Club – which begins on Thursday – that includes fellow major winners Charl Schwartzel and Geoff Ogilvy, Ryder Cup star Victor Dubuisson, 2014 Texas Open winner Steven Bowditch, five-time European Tour winner Brett Rumford and defending champion Jin Jeong.

    SCOTT HEND continued the joy for Australian golf in 2014 by winning his maiden European Tour title on the weekend. The 41 year old Aussie golfer finally triumphed after a thrilling back nine at the Hong Kong Open, overcoming a valiant effort by Filipino player Angelo Que in a play-off for the biggest title of his career. “I’ve come close on the PGA Tour and The European Tour just not to get across the line and finally at the age of 41 I’ve won a European Tour event so it’s very special. It’s awesome, I love it – Europe here I come.” Hend’s win in the jointly sanctioned…

    Ah, “Gay Paree”! When was the last time you visited that enchanted city and all the marvels it has to offer? For me, it’s been far too long but I’m heading back next summer for the art, wine and golf! Did I say “golf”? Yep, I did — and it’s not exactly in Paris but slightly to the West – golf in Western France. Like I mentioned, I have been to France before and just loved it but I have never even swung a golf club there. French golf often gets a bad rap and it’s difficult to even name a few prominent French Professional golfers. Only a handful come to mind –…
  • The TeeSquare: Improve Balance & Stability in Your Golf Swing

    25 Sep 2014 | 10:58 am
    The TeeSquare is an ingenious little training aid that can help just about any golfer – from amateurs to pros (and everything between) – with one of the most common golf flaws there is – swaying (and moving off the ball). You’re listening to someone who has more training aids than Rory has of gutted tee-shots. That being said, for me, the simpler the better. Too many moving parts only disperses your focus. You want it laser-focused so you can optimize your time and focus when practicing. Let me tell you a little story about the TeeSquare. I was having the damnest time this…
  • 7 Putting Secrets You Need to Know

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:13 pm
    Being a better putter, that’s every player’s goal who really understands the game. After all, the flat stick is the one we use the most during every round played. The problem with putting is that there are more styles, stances and systems than for any other part of golf. Just look at the range of putters available. It seems like every week another company comes out with the latest space age contraption. And of course you can get them in every length from your knees up to your chiny-chin-chin. There’s also been a proliferation of putting coaches and training aids to help you…

The first thing you might notice is how weird it can look. Looks like some bored kids who might have (just for fun) used some bright-colored duct tape on one of their siblings while sleeping. It’s called Kinesiology Taping (KT) and it’s actually been around for over 40 years. World Class athletes are touting the benefits of kinesiology tape for its ability to accelerate healing, increase circulation and…

  • When and Why Should I Get Fitted for Golf Clubs?

    Nick Green
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:34 pm
    What's the best collective noun for golf shafts? A bag, a bunch, a quiver?I get asked both questions a surprising number of times. Let's start with the when. There used to be an easy answer and it was a function of the golf club manufacturers launch schedule. January is the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando and having been a participant for the past 25 years, I know "the show" pretty well. All the big boys, Callaway, Nike, Ping, TaylorMade, Titleist used to launch all their new clubs in January and make them available to the public soon afterwards.All that has changed as the manufacturers have…
  • Golf in Latvia - The Senior Skins Match

    Nick Green

    The notion of running an event in Latvia came from Brig Pari, a DC native, who's mother was from Latvia. She and I met at a Christmas party and it was her vision that led to our first event. Where is Latvia you ask? Well, so did I when first approached about running a professional event there about 18 months ago. A quick Google search found Latvia in the Baltics bordering Belarus, Estonia, Lithuania and Russia. With an extraordinary history dating back over 800 years, Latvia has been occupied by the Swedes, Nazis, and the Russians...twice!So, 18 months and many early morning phone…
  • A Great New Ball Comes to Market - Vice Golf

    Nick Green
    13 Sep 2014 | 2:09 pm
    I was recently sent a few dozen golf balls from a new German company. They are called Vice and the balls come in a variety of colors and compressions. And having tested them for the last couple months they are really, really good. These guys are very brave entering the US market and going up against Titleist, Callaway and Bridgestone in the worst retail golf market in memory. But, with awesome packaging and a quality product, priced to sell at way, way below the big boys, I wish them luck. Take a look at their website and you'll see pricing at around $25 a dozen and I defy you to tell the…

    Slow Play is a topic on which I have a lot to say. I grew up in England and learned to play 18 holes comfortably in three hours (often less), so it was a shock to the system playing on public and private golf courses in America where four hours and 30 minutes is more the norm.It's actually been a while since I have blogged (sorry about that!). My clients have been keeping me busy! Although the retail golf business is tough, companies with cool, niche brands continue to do well.As I said, I am passionate about pace of play and have recently started working with a cool new company, Golfswell,…

    Golf Tips & Instruction For The Mental Game

  • Download your mental game scorecard and find out your mental game handicap

    David MacKenzie
    9 Oct 2014 | 11:34 am
    In golf, we need to celebrate success and use our mistakes to get better. After a round, the big questions we need to ask ourselves are: “What did I do well and what do I attribute to that success?” We need to maintain these things during practice. “What did I not do well and how do I improve that?” Let’s try to notice patterns that might be causing these things. 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.

    I was watching Golf Channel’s Morning Drive today and Billy Horschel was on sharing some of his winning putting strategies and drills, which he attributes to helping him win the Tour Championship and Fed Ex Cup. In his last 2 events of the season to seal the best year of this career, he finished first and 6th in strokes gained/putting. At The Tour Championship, he didn’t miss a single putt inside of 5 feet the whole week and he had NO 3-putts. These putting tips and drills are very much in line with the Golf State of Mind Teaching Philosophy, so I wanted to share them with you. 1.
  • How would you handle the first tee of The Ryder Cup?

    David MacKenzie
    25 Sep 2014 | 12:40 pm
    The first tee at The Ryder Cup is probably the most feared and pressured golf shot that Tour players are likely to be faced with. The jitters are so severe, that even the most experienced of players can struggle just to place the ball on the tee. “I was so nervous in 1997 I couldn’t get my ball to stay on the tee. It’s quite funny watching it now. I look quite calm and collected, and I almost look as though I know what I’m doing. But my hands were shaking and my eyes glazed over a little bit and it was obviously a completely different experience to what I’d been used to.” - Lee…
  • A Confidence Building Trick From Rory McIlroy

    David MacKenzie
    15 Sep 2014 | 11:57 am
    Here’s a confidence building trick from World Number One Rory McIlroy. Don’t worry if you can’t make 55 in a row like Rory did here during practice yesterday, but the concept is the same even if you only make 10 in a row. Pick a straight putt on the green of about 4-5ft and have 10-15 balls ready Place a tee in ground so you putt from the same spot each time Pick a spot about 6 inches in front of the ball that the ball will roll over to keep it on line (spot putting) Look at the hole and make a really positive, smooth stroke rolling the ball over your “spot” Make…
  • How Billy Horschel Turned Pressure Into Pleasure

    David MacKenzie
    15 Sep 2014 | 10:20 am
    What an amazing display of handling pressure Billy Horschel showed us yesterday to win both the Tour Championship and Fed Ex Cup. He always looked in control of his swing and he made the game look easy despite the obvious distractions of leading the biggest tournament of his career. How he dealt with the pressure to turn it into a great performance is something the average player typically struggles with. Most amateurs view the feeling of nerves or anxiety as a weakness and subsequently allow them to negatively affect their game (by choking). But with this simple change in thinking it can…

    By: Rob Harris Dominating the golf legal world this week is the report that Rory McIlroy will absent himself from tournament golf for the next month in order to prepare for his upcoming court case with his former management company. Apparently, an attempt to broker a settlement through mediation failed. Trial of the dispute is scheduled for early next year, with suggestions raised that McIlroy will be required to miss additional tournaments. The reasons for the failed mediation have not been publicized. However, we can speculate. With both sides presumably represented by capable attorneys and…

They brought suit against various parties, “alleging that the private placement memorandum used was false and misleading” and that the law firm that represented them in the transaction “failed in its duty to ensure proper disclosures were made.” The attorney representing the plaintiffs in the litigation applied a belt and suspenders approach, causing basically the same lawsuit to be filed in three places: California state court and…

On a U.S. television broadcast on the first day, Faldo criticized Garcia, referring back to his time as Team Europe’s captain in 2008.

    No more love in the Middle East for Tiger? It appears to be the end of an era for Tiger Woods and his former love affair with the Middle East, where tournaments paid a couple of million dollars each year in appearance fees for the former world no. 1 just to play in their events. Apparently that will not be the case in 2015, according to The Telegraph’s James Corrigan: The organisers of both the Abu Dhabi Championship and Desert Classic will not be shelling out the estimated $2m-$3m which Woods requires to make the trip. And although the position of the Dubai competition is complicated…

The task force will reportedly examine the U.S. Ryder Cup process — from how the captains and players are selected to how the team prepares for the matches. Hopefully this one will get the American Ryder Cup team back on track after the U.S. has fallen to Europe in eight of the last 10 biennial dogfights against the two…

    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 company has aggressively pursued style variations and made constant iterations to their lineup to keep things fresh and interesting year-after-year.

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 being impressed by the Shell Layer (see the Aron Jacket review) that we recently reviewed – we decided to dig in a bit deeper and explore some of the other pieces that make up the layering system from Galvin Green. In particular, we took a look at the Cool Layer and the Ventil8 collection. We put the Ventil8 collection to the test by taking a look at the Millard Polo and the Phil golf shorts. All of the Ventil8 pieces are heavily breathable, moisture-wicking, and all are easy to care for. The Millard Polo The Millard Polo is one of the most technically advanced golf polos…
  • A Review of the Nike Covert Tour 2.0 Driver and Fairway Wood

    11 Jun 2014 | 8:03 pm
    Nike has had a huge success with the release of their VRS Covert 2.0 family. While they had a relatively warm reception with the unleashing of the original Covert Driver, Fairways, and Hybrids last year – this year has shown an increase in acceptance, adoption, and momentum for the line. The Nike Covert 2.0 Tour Driver is being used on the PGA tour by Tiger Woods, Rory Mcllroy, Charl Schwartzel, and Nick Watney among others. The Covert (R)Evolution The Covert woods released last year were one of our all-around favorite drivers and fairways of the year. The Covert 2.0 lineup for this…

  • Intervale Country Club, defines “Hidden Gem”

    Jay Morse
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:12 pm
    Intervale CC is a classic parkland design by Alex Findlay in 1903, with renovations by W.B. Booth in 2004. It’s a 9 holer, but it’s not often you can play an original by Findlay, who designed courses in the early 1900′s that mostly remain private, or have disappeared. The Intervale Country Club is routed along the Merrimack River on Front St. just north of downtown Manchester. It has one of the toughest starting holes in the State, a 222 yard par 3, rightly sets the town for the round at hand. For two loops, the course is a short 6,163 yards, 68.3 course rating, and 110…

    Jay Morse

    Full Cry, a hunting term meaning “in hot pursuit”, is part of the 48 room Keswick Hall, and is only available to play as a guest of the 600 acre resort. it’s located on the east side of Charlottesville, just off I-64 at the Louisa Road exit to the east.  Keswick’s original course was built in 1948 by Fred Findlay, renovated in 1992 by Arnold Palmer, and redesigned in 2013 by Pete Dye, and is routed over the rolling hills below Keswick Hall in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Full Cry Golf Club is a parkland design, the greens are mostly open in the front,…
  • New Golf Courses for 2014, it’s a short list…

    The National Golf Foundation reported that eight new public golf courses opened in 2013 while 157 closed. Although they haven’t released the closing numbers for 2014, it’s anticipated to be relatively the same on the closed side, yet there’s only been five all-new public access golf courses which have opened in 2014.  Golf’s in a funk for a host of reasons, shifting demographics, the economy, and the general lack of interest from generations other than the baby boomers. The major factor is simply the over-supply of golf courses which were built over the years to sell…
  • Grindstone Neck Golf Course, the Schoodic Peninsula’s best golf course!

    Jay Morse
    11 Oct 2014 | 3:05 am
    Grindstone Neck is on Frenchman Bay near Winter Harbor, an hour from Bar Harbor on the Schoodic Peninsula.  It’s a golf  course time capsule from the late 1800′s, permanently stuck in time. The scenery, with the mountains of the Acadia National Park in the background, and the views across the Harbor to Ironbound Island and the Atlantic, make this course a beautiful setting, especially on a clear day.  The Grindstone Neck Golf Course was designed by Alex Handy, a one trick shot architect, in 1891.  The nine-holer is located on Winter Harbor, 5 miles east of Bar Harbor, yet an…

    Purgatory, the religious notion, is an intermediate stop on the way to Heaven for purification of the soul necessary to enter eternal bliss. When you play golf at Purgatory, you will experience all realms in a four hour round.   The experience begins with the setting as there’s nothing but pure golf and natural boundaries at the Purgatory Golf Club on a 125 acres tract of slightly rolling Central Indiana farmland known as the longest course in Indiana.  The fairways are bordered by tall fescue which swallows your ball, as do the 125 bunkers throughout the fairways and greenside, along…

    For many golfers, golf and beer go together like ... well, like golf and beer. You can't play golf without downing a few beers. At a minimum, after the round; preferably, during the round. Combine that golf-and-beer twinning with the craft beer craze, and what do you get? You get Graeme McDowell, Keegan Bradley and Freddie Jacobson forming a company to market craft beers they created.

    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.

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…

    Two weeks into the season and we’ve already got some off-the-wall winners of Sang-Moon Bae and Ben Martin. They aren’t completely out of nowhere, but certainly not chalk picks. That is the joy of what’s known as fantasy golf. You can make your best predictions and do the finest analysis known to man, but it comes down to hitting a white ball about 200 times. Anyone can get hot and shake up the leaderboards. I thought we could classify Ben Martin as an easy course specialist because I remembered his podium finish at the Puerto Rico Open last year and his 62 at the Zurich.

Or is the nappy factor just for babies? I’m not really sure what it means exactly, but I’m going to steal it since I constantly hear it being used when relating to performance after big life events. Actually if someone could explain to me what ‘nappy factor’ refers to, that’d be great. Thanks. Let’s see if I can…

The key to this epic fail was again my defense, the Bills D netted me a grand total of -2 FanDuel points for the week. My defenses have been horrifying, I almost want to start picking defenses of teams I would like to see lose assuming their defense will be awful based on me picking them. Andre Williams scored a whopping 5.8 FanDuel points despite getting a start against the Eagles defense.

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.

Personally, I feel Phil completely has the right to criticize Watson as well as prior Ryder Cup captains. However, I believe that Phil totally picked the wrong time and place to do so. I’m not a the biggest fan of Tom Watson, but you don’t publically criticize a Hall of Famer like him at that time. In Watson’s defense I would have sat Phil in the Foursomes as well. He has been unreliable this year and has had exactly one Top 10 finish this year.

Many of the suggestions were pretty standard: eat at home instead of going out, buy generic products, invest in your company’s retirement plan if they offer a match, etc. The last suggestion had to do with saving on hobbies and was rather interesting:   read more

    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…

    2014 will probably be remembered for the back to back major winning feats achieved by Rory McIlroy.  However, when looking back over the 2014 season we should also save a space in the memory for  fellow 25 year old – Rickie Fowler, who’s top class performances saw him emerge as a leading contender in each of the four majors this season. Since his arrival on the PGA Tour in 2010, Fowler has been largely identified by his bright coloured golfing attire and flat-brimmed hat rather than his exploits with the golf club. In 2014 things would change. After spending time working on…
