Laser Putt putting aid

There’s an old adage that says, “Practice makes Perfect.”  But we all know that’s wrong – Practice makes Permanent.  Which is why I am so thankful that up until now, I never practiced my putting.  Why?  Because I had no idea what I was doing! Read More »

Trigger Happy Golf

I was watching the Scottish Open this weekend and the announcers were talking about Peter Uihlein, winner of the 2010 US Amateur, who recently secured his European Tour card. The Euro Tour is not a road often traveled by most North American players. Why? I think it’s because playing on the European Tour involves too much travel, too much bad ... Read More »

Don’t let breaking putts on Maui break you

In the 1989 fantasy-drama, Field of Dreams, the prophetic phrase, “If you build it, he will come.” was born. And for the last dozen years, it  has been bastardized into many forms.  In my product marketing world, I am reminded of this adage far too often.  Software engineers often believe, “If we build it, they will come” (“They” being customers).  ...

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 »

A free Valentine’s Gift for the golfer you love

I’m not a big fan of January.  The excitement of  Xmas is over and all we have to look forward to is snow, sleet and freezing rain.  Oh and did I mention darkness?  It’s dark when I leave for work and dark when I come home at night.  And to top it off there are no more statuatory holidays until March. No wonder bears ... Read More »

From Blocked to Balanced

Most golf fanatics would probably agree, this game is a never ending search for the perfect drive.  And although many players would like to hit it in the short grass more often, that’s not what propels them to the range every week. Distance – that’s really all most of us care about. If we didn’t, we would be happy hitting ... Read More »

Golf – a metaphor for life and business

Recently I was asked by a president of a company doing business in the golf industry how I would go about writing a marketing plan that would ensure his success. I said I would start by reading his business plan. “Oh, I don’t have a business plan actually written down,” he said “I know where I want the company to ... Read More »

Golfers….Feed your Focus!

Last week I wrote about 2 great “F” words in golf – Fundamentals and Feelings.  This week I’ve found a few more.  During my too many years working in the technology industry, I have heard the terms Form, Fit and Function (sometimes called F3) more times than I can count. Form is mostly the physical aspects of a product; fit ... Read More »

Great golf “F” words: Fundamentals and Feelings

When the tulips and daffodils spring up in my garden, I know it’s time to hit the range with my coach, Ginny Golding, and kick off my golf season the way Jack Nicklaus did every year with his coach, Jack Grout – get back to fundamentals. So on our first day together this year, Ginny and I started from ground ... Read More »
