Stimpmeter Reading of Augusta National Greens During the Masters

So, what is the stimpmeter reading of the world famous bentgrass during The Masters at Augusta National? Do they really run 12, 13 or even 14 on the stimp? Before letting your buddies at your country club convince you that your greens are just as fast as Augusta National, you must understand how Augusta is unique and has created the best greens in the world for the second week in April.

Right Foot and Leg Behind Left Leg Practice Golf Swing

Over the last two weeks we have seen two PGA Tour Pros that have practice golf swings in which they have their right leg and right foot well behind their left leg. Sam Ryder and Billy Horschel both practice with their trail leg “inside” their lead leg in their practice swings and practice setup. So, why are they doing this?

Why Do Politicians Love to Play Golf?

Unless you have lived under a rock for the last several decades, you are very aware that politicians love to play golf. It has been a hot topic of debate amongst those of the political mindset. This post is not political in nature whatsoever, I am simply going to tell you why politicians love to play the wonderful game of golf. Note that both male and female politicians love to play golf.

Bryson DeChambeau Upright Shaft Putting Stroke

While Bryson DeChambeau is known for his power, it is his upright shaft putting stroke that is making him one of the best golfers in the world in 2021. So, why does he do this and will it work for you? What Bryson DeChambeau does that is extremely effective is he pins his left arm along the shaft of his putter. Some call this “armlock” putting. Before the belly putter ban many belly putters did the same thing. Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar are players that also pin their left arms against the shaft of their putter, but there is a catch.

Bryson DeChambeau Thundercat Golf Hat

During the third round of The Players Championship on Saturday, March 13th, 2021 Bryson DeChambeau brought out the “Thundercat Hogan” hat. Bryson has sported the Hogan “cap” since he has come on the PGA Tour but this is the first time we have seen him in anything but the normal Puma symbol on the front of the hat. In fact, it looks a lot like the Thundercat symbol from back in the 1980s and 1990s.

Tee Your Driver Lower – Does It Help?

In true Paul Azinger fashion, he is offering golf swing tips during the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He mentioned that Jordan Spieth is teeing his driver lower and it is helping him. So, will this help the common amateur? Will teeing your driver lower make you hit it further and/or straighter? Absolutely not.

Heels vs Toes Golf Swing – Paul Azinger

If there is one thing Paul Azinger loves to do it is to give terrible advice to the amateur golfer. He once claimed that PGA Tour pros could spin their wedges so well solely because of the ball. Yeah, the spin and check has absolutely nothing to do with contact or swing path, it is just the ball. The latest bit of advice he has given (during the Friday round of the WGC Workday Championship) is that amateurs would be better off to have their weight on their heels rather than their toes in the golf swing. Oh boy.

PGA Tour Pros and Players with Shirts Untucked

There was a time when it was unacceptable to have a shirt untucked on a golf course. In fact, most private country clubs and golf clubs throughout the United States require all members to have their shirts tucked in while on the golf course. There has been a recent trend on the PGA Tour of tour pros and players wearing their shirt untucked. The latest is Bubba Watson at the WGC Workday Championship. Here are a few of the PGA Tour Pros that have worn a shirt untucked lately:

Why Do I Top the Golf Ball When It Is Wet or Soggy?

If you live in the southeast you have had to endure one of the wettest winters in recent history in 2020 and 2021. This is two winters in a row in which golf courses and country clubs have had to deal with an abnormal amount of rain. It seems any time the sun is out for a day or two, it is followed by a weekend of rain. Even on beautiful 70 degree days, the fairways are completely drenched or at least soggy. Amateurs all over North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Florida and Georgia are trying to figure out why the top it when the conditions are wet.

Body Moving Faster Than the Arms on the Golf Swing

Time and again we hear Nick Faldo saying the body is moving faster than the arms when PGA Tour pros get under pressure. Late in the day on Sunday Faldo often talks about the swing sequence being out of rhythm. Unfortunately, this is giving amateurs the wrong idea. There is no an amateur in the United States that has the problem of their body moving faster than their arms. This is why.
