Over the last several years, I have had to accept that I am going to be the shortest player in most foursomes. Not height wise, distance wise. I can stay in the fairway but my driver rarely goes over 230 or 240 yards. It can be frustrating at times and leaves me wondering what my score would be if I could actually hit my driver 250 or 260. So, why is it that some people cannot hit a driver over 240 yards?

It is great to see local businesses giving back to the community, especially when it comes to education. There is always a need for a little extra money at high schools, middle schools and elementary schools.

Upon going through an entire swing change, the first step is often posture and the feel of your feet and legs when setting up to the golf ball. So, where should your weight be when you set up to the ball? We have all seen plenty of YouTube videos talking about keeping your feet flat and not lifting up the heels on your backswing. Does this mean you should have the weight on your heels or in the middle of your feet?

If you are like many amateur golfers you are likely hitting the golf ball improperly. Almost everyone that plays golf at the amateur level is doing something wrong in their swing. That is why we have days we simply cannot “find our swing”. Unfortunately, unless you have an unlimited budget and all the time in the world, you are always going to have problems with your swing. These problems likely cause different parts of your body to hurt. The most common part of the body that hurts after playing golf is the hands and fingers.
