What’s Your Game Plan for 2022?

This time of year, I start to reflect briefly on the past 12 months, take stock of where I am and, most importantly, decide where I want to go.  I’m always excited to start planning for the next year. Many people talk about New Year’s resolutions.  And, most of us know that most of the […]

Where Are Your Golf Clubs Right Now?

As the holiday song says, “Baby it’s cold outside.” If your clubs are stored anywhere that’s chilly, you should move them.       Cold = Bad In short, the trunk of your car and/or your garage, (unless it’s temperature controlled) are not where you should store your clubs. The cold will accelerate the deterioration […]

The recreational woman golfer hits her putter more than any other club in her bag.  Yet it is often not the right club to have in their bag. So you ask, how did it end up in my bag?  The reasons are many— it’s an expensive hand-me-down, it was a tee gift, or it is […]

Why We 3-Putt (And How To Fix It)

Your putter is the only club you use on every hole.  For both recreational players and professionals, putts account for about 40% of total strokes which I never realized until I started doing research regarding putting.  Besides adding distance off the tee, for recreational women golfers eliminating a few three-putts every round is a sure-fire […]

As I blog, I am learning so much about what is necessary to play better, to lower your scores and what really makes a difference.  What has become clear to me is improvement is a platform and that it has four basic tenets.  In other words, it’s a four-legged stool.  The four legs are instruction, […]

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 […]
