In early August 2018 I had the opportunity to play both Erin Hills and Whistling Straits. Before reading this analysis, understand that I am a 9 handicap that hits his driver about 230-240 yards. So, which one is better? Erin Hills or Whistling Straits?
Anyone watching the Golf Channel over the last few weeks has likely seen the Notah Begay commercial for the (T)less driver. So, what exactly is the “teeless” driver and does it work?
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.
Have you participated in a charity golf tournament? Have you or your business sponsored a golf tournament and played as a twosome or foursome?
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?
