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 – …

Mizuno MP 32

The Mizuno MP 32 forged blades will soon be my new sticks! I have been playing with Cleveland TA 7 Tour irons and I just cannot get used to them and honestly don’t like them at all. I don’t like the look at address, in the bag, anyway shape or form! They are really good improvement clubs, but they just …

10 Questions with Josh Young

In early March, I got a chance to go down to the Pinehurst Golf Resort because my cousin, who is in high school, was playing in the Nike Winternational Junior Series. I got a chance to play a practice round with my cousin and also joined a fellow Nike Junior player, Josh Young. Josh is a real nice player and …

The Struggles of getting a PGA Tour Card

Living in Indiana my whole life, I have had the chance to witness many great players, especially on the amateur golf side of things. Whether its playing golf with my old teammate Jeff Chapman, getting waxed at the IGA Match Play Championship in 2000 by Lee Williamson, or watching Jamie Broce hit balls on the range at the U.S. Open …

Work your abs and your legs

I am not a big guy by any stretch of the imagination. I am about 175 lbs and almost 6 foot (I like to say I am). Well, the benefit I had going through highschool and part of college is that in my workouts, I always worked my abdomen muscles. I didn’t necessarily have a 6-pack, but I was fairly …
