So many recreational women golfers who find themselves near the putting green, instinctively grab one of their wedges for every short chip or pitch shot.  I do this.  I’m a chipper — no doubt.  I love chipping. But in most situations, I’ve realized that I should be using my putter instead. “The only time around […]

I was lucky enough to get invited by my friend, (and sometimes tournament partner) Sarah Scott, to attend the LPGA Women’s Match Play Tournament at Shadow Creek, Las Vegas’ most exclusive golf course.  There were only a limited number of spectators at this MGM Resorts International/Bank of Hope event.  If you haven’t been to Shadow […]

My golf club is rebuilding its driving range this summer and that means we do not really have anywhere to warm up or practice our full swing for 90 days.  (I live in Las Vegas, so during the summer heat is a good time to do this project.)  We’re going to be able to warm […]

This is going to happen to all of us this golf season.  And I bet it has happened to you in the past too.  It’s certainly happened to me, and more than once. We’re playing well, really well, maybe better than we ever have before.  We know we are going to have one of, it not […]

More than a few of my friends simply cannot get out of the sand.  The possibility of finishing or getting a good score on a hole is simply over when their ball goes into a greenside bunker.  A bad shot can either be a thin, bladed shot or a shot that’s left in the sand […]

I’m a fan of both Skechers and LPGA Pro Brooke Henderson, so when they asked for my help in getting the word out about an opportunity for junior golfers, I jumped on it. Through Friday, April 30th, aspiring 13-18 year olds can enter to win a virtual training session and meet-and-greet with LPGA Pro and […]

As I mentioned in a prior post, there are many issues unique to recreational women golfers.  How we think we are viewed while on the course is one.  It often gets in the way of how we swing and frankly, leads to less than optimal play.  Let me explain… If you live in a warm […]

‘TIS THE SEASON TO GET NEW CLUBS

I just received my new Titleist TSi driver and woods.  I LOVE them.  I have gained distance and decreased my shot dispersion.  No seriously, I love them.  Funny thing but I had a few calls recently with good friends (two who just went through 27-inch record snowfalls) and they tell me that they are looking […]

It’s not often you are going to be told potato chips might be the key to dramatically improving your golf game. This is the second article I am writing about increasing your driving distance, the key to lowering your scores.  If you can hit your drives 20 yards or so farther, you are going to reduce your handicap […]

Is Golf School For You?

Many of my friends around the country who’ve been caught inside during this week’s record cold, mentioned they are starting to look forward to their courses opening (even if it’s 60 days away in many places) and the formal start of the 2021 golf season. In the interim, they asked me if I had attended […]
