Why Does the Ring Finger on My Right Hand Hurt from My Golf Swing?

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.

Where to Buy a Women’s Golf Outfit for Country Clubs

If you are going to a private country club, you will need to dress appropriately. Most younger females do not have the proper golf attire and have no idea what to wear when asked to join a group at a country club. Understand that the attire for social events is very different than the attire for a golf outing. This is an article for women looking for golf outfits strictly for the golf course and golf outings; not social events.

What Happens When Champion Bermuda Greens Stay Dormant?

In the summer of 2017, Hasentree Country Club went from Bentgrass to Champion Bermuda. Other courses in the Raleigh-Durham area did the same thing. Chapel Hill Country Club, North Ridge Country Club and a handful of others were down for the summer because of a green renovation. Unfortunately, the Triangle was hit with one of the harshest winters in recent history and now courses are left wondering what to do if the Champion Bermuda greens do not come out of dormancy.

Why Do Dentists and Orthodontists Play Golf?

When you visit any private country club in America, the membership director will likely tell you the membership roster is littered with dentists, orthodontists and other healthcare professionals. Why is this the case?

Well, it is very easy to understand as most dentists and orthodontists only work four days a week. Some of the most successful dentists and orthodontics offices are open on Friday but these are limited hours and the main doctors are not in the office. This is not to say they don’t work on Friday, but they are not in the office.

Vehicle Sponsors in Golf

We all know that Mercedes, BMW and Audi are vying for sales when it comes to luxury vehicles. They also know that millions of people are watching and playing the game of golf therefore a large sponsorship is often worth it. Last week, at the BMW Championship in Chicago, all the players and announcers had the opportunity to drive around in brand new 2018 BMW models. This means BMW had about 100 new vehicles being test driven around the city of Chicago.

So, is it worth it? While luxury brands are pushing to the higher income customer brands like Honda are pushing first time car buyer discounts. It is amazing to see how these different marketing strategies are executed. We rarely see national TV commercials for Honda, Toyota, Ford and Chevy during golf tournaments. That said, we see a ton of those commercials during college football, NFL football and NASCAR.

Does seeing a brand new Mercedes or BMW driven by a PGA Tour professional make you want to go out and buy one? Does the fact that these golf championships are named after luxury car makers change your vehicle buying decision. Would you rather go get a Ford F150 and spend $50,000 or a BMW 3 series and spend $40,000?

At the end of the year, the luxury brands have to decide where to put their marketing dollars. Golf is obviously one of the best places to do so as they keep coming back for me.
