Learning Golf is Like Life: Play, Fail, Learn, Repeat!

My generation grew up playing board games like Monopoly, Chutes and Ladders, and Sorry. Each game came with an instruction book. It was important to take time and read the instructions before beginning to play. If there was a squabble about some move, we dug out the instructions and re-read what to do in that situation.

Get Lean for More Consistent Golf Swings!

Ever wonder why you don’t hit your clubs on the golf course like you do on the range? Maybe the problem starts with unnecessary movements in your swing.

Can Your Game Stand "Ryder" Pressure?

Watching Jim Furyk agonize over his last four putts in what may be his last Ryder Cup as a player on Sunday was very painful. Even more painful was the picture of Jim with hands on head in utter disbelief as the European team celebrated the win next to him. The scene reminded me of seeing Justin Leonard’s putt to tie fellow competitor Jose Maria Olazabal and the Europeans back in 1999 at The Country Club (Brookline, MA). Interestingly the Americans won that competition by the score of 14 ½ ... Read more...
