39 Gift Ideas For That Special Golfer

    With Black Friday approaching, you may be starting to think about what you’ll be gifting to your friends and family and vice versa. Over the years, like so many of us, I have received numerous well-intentioned but simply unusable golf-oriented holiday gifts. No golfer really wants a sand trap cheese board, golf dice or […]

Seems like everyone I speak with lately is thinking about getting new clubs, demo-ing new clubs or just dreaming of new clubs.  For those of you who know me, I am always looking for improvements to my game.  Today, I just put my new PXG clubs in my bag.  I am very loyal to what […]

3 Keys To Hitting The Green

So you’ve selected and committed to a certain ball.  You’re working on your swing speed and getting more distance out of your drives.  That’s all great.  But what do you do next?   Next, as in you’re about to hit your approach shot into the green.  This is where better players begin to truly differ […]

I had the opportunity last weekend to have dinner with former two-time world long drive champion Art Sellinger.  Our conversation included some deja vu as Art, unprompted, reiterated something I mentioned in my last post which is the closer you can get your ball to the hole (especially on your drive), the lower your score […]

“Competitive golf is played mainly on a five-and-a-half-inch course…the space between your ears.”      ~Bobby Jones, Founder of Augusta National Golf Club, Co-Founder The Masters, Winner of 4 US Opens and 3 Open Championships   I was walking through the paddock at my course the other day when I saw the golf cart license plate pictured […]

It seems like every few years I need to replace some of my equipment, especially items I’ve inadvertently broken.  I’m trying to be gentle on the more fragile items, like rangefinders, but how many times have you dropped your rangefinder only to find it won’t work?  Then you’re forced to go buy a new one […]

A Wee Bit of Trivia

In the wake of the The Open Championship, I think it’s relevant to give credit to an extremely important historic female whose name I did not hear mentioned during coverage of the tournament. We’ve heard about the likes of Old Tom Morris born in St. Andrews approximately 200+ years ago, but nothing of Mary, Queen […]

Apply Sunblock Before Your Foundation

Many parts of the country are experiencing heat waves this summer.  As we deal with the sun, I’ve learned July is UV Safety Awareness Month.  It’s a great reminder for all of us to take precautions from the sun before and during play. The focus of UV Safety Awareness Month is the importance of protecting […]

The Argument for Leaving the Flag In

I first wrote about whether to leave the flagstick in back in 2020 after the rule had changed saying it was now optional to pull it when on the putting green.  This is still a question with every new group you play with – some leave it in and some take it out. The question […]
