    31 Oct 2014 | 5:54 am
    Ji-Hee Lee fired a 7-birdie 66 to take a 2-shot lead on Momoko Ueda and Mihoko Iseri into the 2nd round of the Hisako Higuchi Morinaga Ladies.  Mi-Jeong Jeon and Esther Lee are only 3 back, Ji-Yai Shin, Yumiko Yoshida, Ai Suzuki, and Natsuka Hori are 4 behind, and Bo-Mee Lee, Miki Saiki, and the visiting Mika Miyazato are 5 off the pace.  Shin and Erika Kikuchi both got holes-in-1 on the 152-yard par-3 8th, while Kaori Makitani eagled the 487-yard par-5 6th.  With money-list leader Sun-Ju Ahn and last week's winner Shiho Oyama sitting this one out, it's a great opportunity for…

    World #1 Inbee Park followed up yesterday's 64 at the Fubon LPGA Taiwan Championship with a 62 to get to -18 and take a 3-shot lead on Shanshan Feng.  Park's ten-under-par round included a bogey on the par-4 4th and an eagle on the par-4 8th, along with 9 birdies, while Feng's 65 was marred only by back-to-back bogeys early on the back 9.Even as Park and Feng battle it out for world domination, the Rookie of the Year race is heating up.  Mirim Lee fired a bogey-free 62 of her own today to catch Lydia Ko (65) and Line Vedel (68) at -10.  Despite birdieing 6 holes in a row…

  • Watch Out for Fliers

    jason
    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

    jason
    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

    jason
    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

    jason
    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?

    jason
    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…

Kobe Bryant shouldn't be this effective, not after tearing his Achilles and sustaining a serious knee injury in the last two seasons. Bryant scored 31 in his second game of the season on Wednesday and is stockpiling points again vs. the Clippers on Friday. Mid-way through the third quarter, Kobe has 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting. He's done it in a variety of ways: The Lakers are still likely to lose a bunch of games this season, but at least Kobe looking like Kobe will give fans a reason watch all year long. Seriously: who…

    The Masters might be a few months away, but the bookies are already tipping Rory McIlroy for the title. According to experts at Unibet, McIlroy is the 9/2 favourite for the 2015 tournament, which means if you visited the site's iPad betting app with £10 and lumped it on the Irishman, you'd make a £45 profit. Of course, just because he's the bookies favourite, it doesn't necessarily mean Mr. McIlroy will run away with the title, but he recently told the BBC that he's ready for the pressure. Noting that his prediction for two major titles in 2014 was spookily true, McIlroy said that his…

They weren't wrong. As I just said (pay attention...don't make me repeat myself), the Star Wars wedge was among the (if not the) most popular things we've ever posted to Facebook and Twitter.

  • Why Google+ Is More Beneficial Than LinkedIn

    Scot Duke
    27 Oct 2014 | 4:57 am
    I know there is this deep impression many business people have towards LinkedIn being the ONLY place on the internet they get any ‘Traction’ towards their business’ mission.  I totally understand.  I use to feel the same way until I learned what Google+ offers that LinkedIn will never EVER be able to touch. Started with LinkedIn It is not like I have never used LinkedIn.  I joined LinkedIn when it started in late 2002 which means I have seen every change they have made since then.  I’m still present on LinkedIn but only as a placeholder for my business resume…

    The question…“How should I use Social Media to Generate Business”…ranks somewhere near the top of the list of questions I am asked on a daily bases. It is a tough question to answer since there is no one-way to use social media to generate business. Many businesses are quickly finding out they are far behind the curve in using social media.  To keep from showing to their competitors and consumers (which is nearly everyone) they have a weakness they will quickly jump into the social spaces after reading a few blogs about how to use social media written by people…

Ranting is still going on today and will probably go on as long as there others who will read them or will listen.  There are some people who have made posting a rant a daily affair.  Then there are others who have made rants into a new art form.  The better rants are the ones where you don’t know you are reading ..or listening to..a rant until the last sentence or…

The match began in perfect conditions with Tippett taking an early lead going 2up though four holes. With the wind picking up Sams fought back to lead the match 1up through 8, however Tippett once again rallied to win holes 11, 12 and 14 to regain the lead and move to 2up. The finals holes were a see-sawing event with the match coming down to the 18th hole with Sams requiring a 14ft putt to take the championship.

    Do you sometimes feel, that for whatever reason, some of your golf club(s) just aren’t cutting the Grey Poupon anymore? They just don’t give you any feel you’re looking for? 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. My playing partners would rib me to no end when I hauled that out. But it just was the right size, shaft had the perfect amount of bend, etc. I just felt like…

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…

    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…

    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.

    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

    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…

    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…

  • Transgender Woman Wins Damages Over Golf Course Membership Rejection

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:22 pm
    I’m unaware of this issue being litigated in the United States, but here’s an interesting case, as reported in The Asahi Shimbun: HAMAMATSU–A transgender woman has won a lawsuit against the operators of a golf course who denied her membership after she changed her registered sex from male to female. The Shizuoka District Court’s Hamamatsu branch on Sept. 8 ordered the golf course operators to pay 1.1 million yen ($10,380) in damages. The plaintiff, a 59-year-old company owner in Shizuoka Prefecture, had demanded 5.85 million yen in compensation. Presiding Judge Kenjiro…
  • Golf Club Sues To Use Neighbor’s Yard As Part Of First And Second Holes

    Rob Harris
    28 Oct 2014 | 12:27 pm
    By: Rob Harris The website for Washington’s Chewelah Golf and Country Club describes the facility as “a magnificent, open to the public, 27 hole golf course… carved into majestic conifers, boasting plush bent-grass greens, manicured fairways, and four sets of tees to challenge any skill level.” Omitted from the website description, however, is a reference to the fact that, to create sufficiently wide playing areas, the golf course incorporates into play the front yards of the homes that abut the fairways. Therein lies the predicament that recently confronted the…

Quaker Ridge soon may be feeling as besieged by an onslaught of lawsuits as the neighbors are by the invasion of golf balls. Another neighborhood family is taking Quaker Ridge to court, claiming that they, too, are the unwelcome…

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…

    Par-4 15th at the Jubilee Course For one week out of the year when the Dunhill Links is contested, golfers can play a combination of the New and the Jubilee, the second and third courses built at the Home of Golf, which sit just north of the Old Course. When this option was initially presented to me, I wasn’t thrilled with the idea, to be honest. I thought it might be troublesome and that I might get annoyed with awkward, broken routings. That said, it was a pleasant surprise when I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It’s perhaps not the most trying round of golf you’ll ever…

On the par-3 179-yard 17th, Streb knocked a dart to about four feet from the cup. He rolled in the birdie putt to defeat de Jonge, who had just barely missed his 20-footer to extend the battle. On the first extra hole, Streb matched de Jonge’s par by making a knee-knocking three-footer. Those two final putts were the most nervous…

    Ben Carey
    4 Oct 2014 | 7:31 pm
    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…

    The Fort is an historic golf course in Southwest Florida, and is located south of Fort Myers between the Tamiami Trail and McGregor Blvd a mile north of the Midpoint Bridge over the Caloosahatchee River. The golf course was originally designed by Donald Ross in 1917, and was the home to many of the early PGA Tour events in Southwest Florida, including the Senior PGA Championship and The Fort Myers Open.

    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 tone for the round at hand. For two loops, the course is a short 6,163 yards, 68.3 course rating, and 110…

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…

  • The DraftKings Huddle: Week 9 Plays and Lineups

    Kyle DeFrancesco
    30 Oct 2014 | 6:34 am
    Wow, Week 9 already huh? This season is flying by and I don’t recall one in recent memory where we’ve experienced so many injuries.  Things were looking good this past week as we were sitting with a healthy 137 points with Tony Romo and Dez Bryant to go.  Well as you now already know, Romo suffered a back injury and the rest is history.  Let’s shake it off and prepare for yet another exciting week of NFL. The DraftKings Millionaire Maker tournament has been seeing some overlay the last couple weeks and I would expect it once again this week.  If you like free money and…
  • CIMB Classic Fantasy Preview

    Josh Culp
    28 Oct 2014 | 7:54 pm
    As the TOUR tees it up overseas in Malaysia for the 2015 CIMB Classic, we must prepare ourselves for a great week of night golf. That also means this preview is being published on Tuesday night instead of Wednesday morning like usual. Two cheers for that! With the greens only running at 11 on the stimp and soft & humid conditions, the holes will be wide open for par-breaking attacks. The traditionally poor putters will get a leg up as they will be able to fire away with their flat stick and not be punished too heavily by putting misses. I doubt there will be many three-putts this week,…

    After Robert Streb took care of Will MacKenzie and Brendon de Jonge in a playoff to secure his first PGA TOUR win, we will now head overseas to Kuala Lampur for the CIMB Classic. It was a great start to the season, but last week was quite disappointing for my sleepers, and my lineups overall. I pinpointed a lot of great plays but found a lot of land mines in the form of Charley Hoffman, Brian Stuard, and Harris English. Let’s see if we can’t get back on track in Malaysia. Short Course Studs K.J. Choi @ $6,400: Top 45s in nine of last 11 short course events. Marc Leishman @ $7,300:…

    Let’s keep this short. Each week I will host a game on DraftKings with a $2 entry. Top two will win money each week, but more importantly they will earn bragging rights. I will give away prizes throughout the season and/or at the end of the season to the top performers, as well. Let’s see who is the King of DraftKings Golf. Join this week’s introductory CIMB Classic contest. Update: the contest filled quickly.

    Week 7 is in the books and yet another poker player, RayOfHope, took down the $1,000,000 prize on DraftKings.  Our week was pretty solid and the sample lineups I gave put up respectable numbers.  I’m still looking for feedback on which format you guys prefer?  Do you like sample lineups?  I’ll continue with it this week as my goal is to help you guys make money and better your fantasy game. One thing to note this week is that DraftKings once again is offering their Millionaire Maker tournament. This weekend you can turn $27 into $1,000,000 playing Daily Fantasy Football. Week…

  • Tobacco Road Golf Club

    Sean Ogle
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:57 am
    I couldn’t tell you why, but of all the courses on the Top 100 Public list, there’s one my readers and friends have told me about more than any other: Tobacco Road. 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! Luckily a few weeks ago the opportunity to head to the Think Tank 2014…
  • Arccos Golf vs Game Golf – Which is Better?

    Sean Ogle

    You can buy Game Golf here. You can buy Arccos Golf here. As you’ve noticed over here, I’m all about golf technology. I think if we’re going to get a younger generation playing more often, the more we can leverage technology to help them grow their game – the better. This year there are two names that I’ve heard more than any other when it comes to pushing the limits of golf technology: Game Golf and Arccos Golf. Game Golf has been around for about a year now, and they’ve continued to evolve their product into one of the most popular golf devices on the…

    Sean Ogle
    12 Oct 2014 | 11:30 pm
    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…

    First, let’s get one thing out of the way right up front. It’s not pronounced BerWICK. It’s pronounced BerICK. I made that mistake a couple of times early on in the trip, and everyone around was quick to correct me. So, I’m just trying to do you a favor for when you inevitably go play this course (and after this post, you’ll understand why you should.) I’m going to be totally honest and admit that before showing up at North Berwick I knew very little about it. It started by going down the Golf Digest Greatest 100 list, and reviewing all of the courses in…

  • Callaway Big Bertha Irons Review: Best New Irons of 2015?

    trentvanwormer
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    I am more than sure that you have seen the claims by Callaway by now: “The Big Bertha Irons can make you up to 2 clubs longer” I was very intrigued when I saw the Patrick Reed video promo below in my Facebook feed a few days ago. Then it got me to thinking: What if Callaway’s new Big Bertha irons can actually deliver an extra two club lengths worth of added distance to the average golfer? That is a pretty bold and swagtastic claim. They say it’s not cocky if you can back it up. We will test the claims out later on in our Big Bertha Irons Review. To be crystal ball…

    Here is the Next Generation of the Big Bertha Driver Over the past year, Callaway started bringing back a few of the most iconic marketing names in golf equipment history. First came the Apex irons and now Callaway brought back the driver that is most likely responsible for the reign of the metal woods: THE Big Bertha driver. Shout out to the Boom Boom from Lynx and Freddy Couples for being the first metal wood I ever owned.Callaway had some big stones to try and bring back such a popular, even iconic, name.

    I had the privilege of discovering the finest golf glove I have ever worn in my whole life in the past week. I am a golf nerd who likes to poke around at my local golf stores and see what is new or try new things out. I tried on several FootJoy golf gloves at my local Golfsmith this past Thursday and I must say that I will officially never go to any other brand again. I have been a FootJoy golf glove guy for quite some time now, but one particular glove literally sealed the deal. The glove lucky enough to sway my loyalty to FootJoy is the FootJoy Pure Touch Limited Edition. The FootJoy Pure…

    Shanon Lampkins - www.womenplaygolftoo.com 0   A recent finance article I came across gave “10 simple changes that could save you $20,000 a year”. I’m always interested in ways to save money and love a good list, so this seemed like an interesting read. 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

  • American’s need helping hand….

    Bradley Gibbs
    25 Oct 2014 | 2:38 pm
    In this years Ryder Cup, Europe once again showcased their superiority over the US, with a resounding 16 1/2 to 11 1/2 victory. 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? It was 1977, when conversations led by legendary American golfer, Jack Nicklaus, brought about a change to the format of the competition. After years of American…
  • Anchored putting, right or wrong?

    Bradley Gibbs
    14 Oct 2014 | 7:57 am
    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…

    Golf’s flagship team event is now less than a week away, can the Europeans make it 3 wins in a row? and even more remarkably, 6 wins from the last 7 Ryder Cup meetings. Years ago, the Ryder Cup seemed a slightly different two yearly occasion. Less of a competition and more a week in every two years where the USA turned up to showcase their superiority over Britiain & Ireland. How things have changed. The amendment from:  Britain & Ireland to Team Europe, also brought with it a change in fortunes. Gone are the days of American dominance. Since their inception in 1979, Team…

    As the season draws to a close, the world of golf gears up for one last showstopping event. Taking place every other year, The Ryder Cup – hosted this time round at Gleneagles (Scotland) – carries a truly unique feel. Competing in teams – the only time golfers at this level do so – is perhaps what makes this famous event so special. The fact that those teams consist of Europe and the US, adds that extra ounce of passion. It is often the Majors that are most talked about in golf; however the Ryder Cup is as big as it come for those players involved. US wildcard Keegan…

    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…
