Looking at these techniques, how can we apply them to a bad hole in golf?  I don’t mean to take your vengeance physically on the hole.  If we treat the bad hole as the attacker on our enjoyment of the round and positive mental state, how can we combat that attack?

What the Hell is a Baffler Golf Club?

Tagged , , Leave a Comment on What the Hell is a Baffler Golf Club?

Cobra is not at the top of my list for desired hybrids or other golf clubs. The reason this golf club is in my bag is because of its unique loft as a 7H at 31°.   I was looking for a hybrid to hit with some good loft like a wedge. My family passed around, Callaway War Bird 7 Wood through the years.  That club was excellent for 180 yard par 3s with its great distance and straight drop at the end of its flight.

What to Do if You Forgot How to Play Golf

Tagged , , Leave a Comment on What to Do if You Forgot How to Play Golf

There is terrible affliction that robs the golfer of all knowledge of how to hit and the physical coordination to strike a golf ball purely.  It robs them of years of technique, practice, and most importantly confidence. There are no tells of its approach and the only sign of its infection is a confused look on the face or repeated staring at your club after each terrible shot.  It is the Voldemort of golf and we dare to speak its name….the y!ps.

It Was the Best of Golf Score, It Was the Worst….

Tagged , , Leave a Comment on It Was the Best of Golf Score, It Was the Worst….

Recently, I played at Heron Glen Golf Club with my dad.  It was the first round that we had played together this summer.  I enjoy playing with my dad now that I can hit consistently and don’t lose a dozen balls on the Front 9 or my temper on a regular basis.  This round was special to me for another reason, I played probably my best golf score despite imploding on the last 3 holes of the day.  And I didn’t lose my sh!t.

Ready Golf is defined by the small steps taken by all players to not waste time.  Some traditional protocols are ignored but not completely forgotten.  It is not a free for all but rather an organized group effort.  Golf courses like it because they cannot more foursomes through the course in a day.  I want to review what makes for good ready golf.

Tour Logic Perfect Swing Trainer Failed Perfectly

Tagged , , Leave a Comment on Tour Logic Perfect Swing Trainer Failed Perfectly

The concept behind the Perfect Swing Trainer is the looping path of the ball after being struck will illustrate the path of the ball in free flight.  The best result is a vertical swinging ball.  If the ball is looping a side, you hit a slice or hook.  Since the ball is on a string, you can hit the ball for hours and save money on driving range buckets of balls (in theory).

Statistics is a bit of a draw to golf for me.  I like looking for trends and see how my game improves or degrades.  At one time, I considered building a spreadsheet to track scores and compute handicap.  I found an app to track scores and compute handicap but I wanted more.  While playing at Scotland Run, my cart mate showed me the app he used to score his round and track his progress: The Grint.

Improve Your Driving Range Ritual to Save Strokes

Tagged , , 3 Comments on Improve Your Driving Range Ritual to Save Strokes

To get the most out of the driving range, I find it best to spend half my time practicing chipping. I got tired of flubbing chips or sculling shots across greens. It paid dividends and my score dropped. Why ruin two shots to get you just off the green by having no faith in your chip shot?
