by Dr. Bill Kroen There is a lot of Psycho babble in golf literature when it comes to the mental aspect of putting. Gurus tell us that the secret to great putting is confidence. But how does the guy who gets the jitters over a three-foot putt every time gain confidence? Another secret is to visualize the ball going into [...]

By Tim Rosaforte Rickie Fowler warmed up for his title defense of one of club golf’s major championships by finishing T-13 in the Honda Classic yesterday. Today he will be at the Seminole GC pro-member with partner Buddy Marucci in hopes of getting his name on the locker room wall a third consecutive time. “It’s the first major of the [...]
I have tried every formulaic chipping system you can think of, all the ones in the books and YouTube videos, and none of them worked. Chipping by feel didn’t work so hot, either.
But this year, I finally figured it out. It is incredibly easy, and I’m going to tell you how to do it.
One of the very first posts I wrote almost five years ago was called “The Round Club Mindset”, where I posited that most golfers feel like they are in “scoring range” when they get a short iron or wedge in their hands – one of those clubs with the rounded top line. That feeling dates back to my very earliest [...]
By Stephen Hennessey Starting the week at No. 44 on the Web.com Tour’s money list, Justin Bolli needed to make a big move to jump the 19 spots required to earn his PGA Tour card. How about winning the Web.com Tour Championship outright? Bolli, 36, made his PGA Tour rookie debut in 2005, and has been a PGA Tour member for three [...]
TIRED OF THE ANCHORING CONTROVERSY? Want to roll back the modern, juiced-up golf ball? Missing the true spirit of golf? Two words: hickory golf. As Brian Schuman says in the video, “It’s finding the essence of the game in a 100-year-old piece of wood.” It looks like a lot of fun to me. And, if nothing else, you’ll look great [...]
We’ve all been there before, stuck behind that slow foursome. You seethe in frustration as they each three-putt their way to a fist pump and high-fives. But slow play doesn’t have to knock you out of your rhythm and steal your joy. 1. Meet New People If you’re anything like me, golfing alone is not only fun, it’s therapeutic. But [...]
For a lot of golfers around the country, it doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside, or whether they never have to put their golf clubs in storage over the summer. The golf season doesn’t truly start until The Masters tournament gets underway, and this year’s edition will kick off on Thursday in Georgia. Before the tournament starts, it would [...]
Believe it or not, the basic concept of how to square the club face is actually highly debated amongst various golf instructors. Like many people, I found myself quite confused after reading all of the different school’s of thought. However, over the past year of of so I have spent a great deal of time studying Jimmy Ballard’s concepts and [...]
It’s The Cadillac of SkyCaddie Rangefinders (Written by: Golfspy Dave) Growing up, calling something the “Cadillac of” anything meant that it was the best of class. It’s funny how language and references change over time. Some of you have likely never heard that phrase used before. I should probably update my vernacular a bit, but we all know how uncomfortable [...]
