Amateur Status breached?

So I ran into an interesting rule through email with the USGA. I had a question about whether the videos on videos page would put an amateur in violation. The videos do not fall on a page where any ads exist, there is no narration, so technically, those videos do not put either me or Deron into violation. The following …

Lag putting…get better at it now!

Okay, so I’m not a golf pro by any means and I’m not going to try and be one in this post. What I am going to do is tell you about a little tip I read somewhere on the net for putting. If you’re like me then you’re not a great putter, which most golfers not on tour are …

Mizuno MP32 continued

A couple weeks ago I posted about the new clubs I would be receiving in the mail. They are the Mizuno MP32 blades with the new cut muscle technology. If you didn’t read the first post, you can read it in the equipment section of the site.

Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics

Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics is a funny golf blog focused on providing fictional conversations that take place on the pga tour. It also covers/makes fun of the media coverage of tour as well. Below is a snippet from one of the recent postings. Tiger: Wow, theres a visual I didn’t need. And like your 2004 does anything for the …

Importance of a good mental grind

Today, my father and I played in an event called the “Ol’Buddy”, which is basically a team match play tournament that takes place 1 match per month at our local club. It requires handicaps, and because they are taking 90% of your handicap, and mine is a 2, I ended up not getting ANY shots in today’s round. What this …

Every Stroke Counts

Alot of golfers never get to experience the joys of playing on a golf team, let alone both a high school and college team. Playing on a high school team is great, and if you take it seriously, it prepares you to raise the bar and move onto a college golf team. I worked my ass off in high school …

Fix That Hook!

I was at the range today and as normal I started off by hitting thirty or so wedge shots, then went up to a 9 iron, and then to a 7 iron and then back down to some more wedge shots (I practice the wedge probably most of all at the range).

When things just don’t go your way

How many times have you been playing in a tournament and either couldn’t get focused or just found everything you did on the course was poor? In the latest tournament I played in, before I even hit my first tee shot, everything seemed to be right in the world. I was hitting the ball extremely well on the range, the …

Tournament of Champions

UPDATE: Well, the tournament did not go as planned. For some reason, my swing felt better, but I couldn’t score, especially when it came to chipping and putting. My ball striking felt decent compared to the last 2 years (in which I have struggled with my swing), but I just couldn’t score in this tournament. I fired a 79 – …
