Open Your Stance When Your Putting Goes Awry

March 24th, 2010 by sunjiangyao2010

Putting touch can come and go. In other articles I have addressed some possible on the course corrections for when your touch is off on any given day. But what about when your distance is pretty good, but you can’t seem to get the ball started on the right line?

Chances are if you are missing your line consistently one way or the other you are simply misaligned. You can try to make a small adjustment to correct your alignment, but this is very difficult to do on the course.

If you are missing your line on both sides, it is a signof Read more…

Lets talk belly putters….

March 2nd, 2010 by Adam Deatherage

I recently made a switch from traditional to belly, and so far have loved the results. My stance was out of whack, wrists too involved, and I obviously had trouble making putts. It occured to me that solving many recreational golfers problems with a belly putter seems like an easy solution. Or as Hank Haney described,

“In a normal putting stroke, both ends of the putter can move off line. By anchoring the butt of the club in your stomach with a belly putter, you guarantee that only one end of the club is moving. That makes for a much steadier stroke,especially Read more…

Laws of Golf

February 10th, 2010 by jw

LAW 1:
No matter how bad your last shot was, you
should have Inner peace knowing that a shittier
one is yet to come. (This law does not expire on
the 18th hole, since it has the supernatural
tendency to extend over the course of a
tournament, a summer and, eventually, a lifetime.)
LAW 2:
Your best round of golf will be followed almost
immediately by your worst round ever. The
probability of the latter increases with the number of people you tell about the former.
LAW 3:
Brand new golf balls are water-magnetic. (Though
this cannot be proven in the lab, it is a known fact
that the more expensive the golf ball, thegreater

My Thoughts On Praticing Putting

December 19th, 2009 by jmiller065

The area where a single digit like myself can improve the most is in short game and putting… this blog is about how i have come up with making a boring activity like practice putting meaningful and add a little pressure that you will have when your on the course and you have one attempt at a putt… just figured i would talk about my mentality when i putt and practice my putting. I rarely have more then 30 putts a round… typically i run around 26-29… my highest lately was 32 putts…

first off I have a pre-putt routine that iuse, Read more…

Becoming Scratch Or Bettor

December 8th, 2009 by jmiller065

I’m currently a 3 handicap and playing mediocre in my opinion.

Some rounds I go low and play great, for example i shoot a 34 on a par 36 (only played the front 9 of the course). The course wasn’t extremely tough, but it’s not simple either. I went and played 18 holes at a harder course over the weekend and shoot an 80. I couldn’t putt worth a crap. 34 total putts later it was a mess.

Anyways, I have been thinking about getting bettor and how to accomplish that. First off I want to say that i work 40 hours aweek Read more…

Awesome course and they have done a lot of work to get the course back to a top notch course. Plays long nice hard fairways and greens are lighting fast. Satff is excellent and go the extra mile.

Summer Golf. It's HELL out there!

July 19th, 2009 by pop g

Summer has arrived with a vengeance with temperatures in the upper 90’s having a huge impact on golf hackers like myself. First, there is the obvious, HEAT! It’ll sap your energy affecting your strength on drives and your concentration on putts. But there are positives & negatives to the summer heat. Let’s start with the positives, the Fairways! The water deprived fairways are hard as a rock. Drives stir up dust on impact and roll for miles. Ok, maybe not miles but at least another 20 yards. Very good for a hacker like myself. Even the sand is hard making iteasy Read more…

As promised, here is my review of FreeCaddie
for Windows Mobile. First, a disclaimer: I don’t work nor know anyone
associated with the company making this product ;-). So I went to play
Douglaston golf course in queens, ny. Had the course loaded, along with others
from around my area, well in advance. On the first tee it was showing the same
yardage as the marker and there after it was pin point on every hole. On 17th
tee box had a little comparing to the “golf ginnie” and turned out that I had
exact yardage that the ground marker was showing unlike the ginnie which added
few yards.Also Read more…

New Book, 'Ultimate Golf Techniques'

May 5th, 2009 by bucky1957

I got this book last weekend, it is essentially 150 pages covering the golf swing. It describes every step in detail, including the way the swing should feel and what to visualize. I got it because it showed how to ‘work the ball’. I figured that if I could learn how to hit a fade or a draw, I could understand why I hit a hook and slice and stop those types of shots. I have yet to go to range to try the techniques outlined in the book. We’ll see if it helps or justmesses Read more…

Tiger's Intimidation Factor

April 17th, 2009 by Wade Lewis

On Wednesday before the Masters, my fiance asked me, “Why does it always seem like Tiger comes from behind to win tournaments?”. I simply told her, intimidation. Michael Jordan once said that he never tries to force things, he let’s the game come to him and if your patient, it will happen. Tiger Woods is the same way, he sort of eases his way into a lead. When Tiger Woods is playing behind you both physically and on the leaderboard, the field always has to keep in the back of their minds, “Where’s Tiger”. They becomeintimidated, Read more…
