Why Do I Heel My Driver But Not My 3 or 5 Wood?

Heeling the driver is something I have grown very accustomed to. Unfortunately, there are about two or three rounds a month in which I cannot get the ball in the middle of the club face and I hit a lazy fade that ends up only going about 220 yards. It is painful to play under these conditions as my home golf course can play extremely long. If you are only hitting a driver 220 yards on a 450 yard par 4 life can be extremely difficult. So, why is this the case?

How Much Money Will PXG Throw at Rory McIlroy

Today it came out that PXG is very interested in Rory McIlroy and not at all interested in Tiger Woods.

If I Can’t Draw a Driver, Should I Use a Regular or Women’s Shaft?

I am one of the few people that can admit they cannot hit a draw with a stiff shaft on a driver. I am not proud. I gladly play with a women’s driver and shoot in the 70s. I tried my damndest to figure out how to hit a draw with a stiff shafted driver and it would never turn over. One day, I was playing with a lovely young lady and decided to hit her driver. It was a nice five yard draw that went a mile. I was convinced.

Putting is the hardest part of golf; don’t let anyone tell you differently. The only way you are going to break 90, 80 or even 70 is to avoid three and four putts. If your greens are rolling at a 12 or faster you know just how many strokes you can accumulate on the greens. On the flip side of that, if you are a great putter, you know how much of a stress reliever it is to stand on the green knowing you will two putt or less. Here are some tips on becoming the best putter at your country club.

Eagle #9 – Hasentree #9 352 Yards

It has been way too long since I’ve had an eagle. I went on an eagle binge last July and haven’t had much action since. That changed on Sunday, April 24th, 2016. My favorite golf hole, to play, is Hasentree #9. It is a double fairway downhill par 4 that is very easy for anyone that has a strong inside 150 game. Well, I finally dunked it from the fairway.
