Opposites in Golf

When it comes to golf, I love a good laugh.  Because if I didn’t laugh, I wouldn’t be golfing at all. It may be the greatest game in the world, but it’s also the most infuriating.  For every good shot, there are 5 “opposites” just waiting to steal all my glory.   Read More »

Ka’anapali’s Legendary Tommy Tang’s Journey

Golf – it’s so much more than just a game.  So as much as I love it for its challenges and rare rewards what makes it extra special for me are the extraordinary people I meet on the fairways. When my golfguy and I made our annual escape to paradise this fall, I was reminded once again of this reality ... Read More »

Getting Ready for My New Favorite Golf Adventure

I have often thought that you can tell more about a person by what they read, watch, listen to and do for fun than what they say about themselves.  It’s why I ask people I meet for the first time what their favorite books/movies/past times/music are.   If  you were to ask me that question, here’s what I’d say… Read More »

Getting ahead of yourself in golf is a hazard to your game.

There’s an old saying that “Practice Makes Perfect”, but we know that is just not true.  “Practice Makes Permanent” which is why our golf games are chocked full of bad habits. One of my worst habits is looking up too soon.  Instead of keeping my eyes down as I swing through, I very often take a peek and pay for ... Read More »

Get in the Zone with Golf Sense

It always amazed me that the greatest athletes in the world like Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky find golf difficult.  They have to run and throw, or skate and shoot while balls and pucks are flying at lightening speeds, and yet they find hitting a little white stationary ball hard. But then I read  Roy Palmer’s book, Golf Sense, and ... Read More »

Therapy for a golfer’s soul: Golf’s Unfolding Drama

Evan Schiller You meet the most interesting people when you work or play in the golf industry – many of them through social media. Last week was no exception.  I followed someone on Twitter who introduced me to his new eBook on the iPad. Now normally I get books sent to me by publishers to review for free. If I ... Read More »

If it’s good enough for Annika, it’s good enough for me!

Back in 2010 I was very focused on improving my golf handicap.  I put together a 10 step program to better golf and dropped 3 points off my index.  It was a very good year. 2011?  Not so much… Last year my handicap remained flat even though my game felt okay and I shot my lowest score twice while vacationing ...

Great Gift for the Ardent Golfer

Legs like Buttah! I’ve always thought that Ernie Els’ swing was poetry in motion. It looks completely effortless and rhythmic; some might even go so far as to say it is as smooth as Barbra Streisand’s legs… “Like buttah!” (Ooops, I think I’m dating myself 🙂 ).  Anyway, back to golf… Except for my comments on The Big Easy, I ...

Getting through the January “I miss golf” blues

It’s January 23, 2011 and yesterday I hit my first golf ball in almost 2 months!   It was heaven being out on the range – the sun was shining; it was 48 degrees, I had new grips on my clubs and I was feeling great!  I was so happy, I even enjoyed the bad shots – just hitting the ... Read More »
