You've seen the commercials: "While we're young!" shouts Annika. Named appropriately after the famous line uttered by Rodney Dangerfield's character in Caddyshack, "While We're Young" was conceived to combat the four fundamental causes of slow play: player behavior, course design, course setup and player/group management.

OK, so it's Christmas time again. And us golfers, that means at least a couple golf-related Christmas gifts from our family or friends. But maybe before they run to the golf section at Walmart or head to Golf Galaxy to buy a gift for Dear Old Dad, they'll read this article and consider a few of the suggestions contained herein.
Series: PGA Tour
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) -- Zach Johnson put together the storybook finish at Sherwood on Sunday that for the longest time belonged to Tiger Woods.
Johnson rallied from four shots behind with eight holes to play, holed out from a drop area for par on the last hole to force a playoff, and beat the No. 1 player in golf at the World Challenge when Woods missed a 5-foot par putt on the first extra hole.
"Pretty impressive what he did," Woods said. "He got me."
HONG KONG (AP) --- Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Hong Kong Open for the fourth time Sunday after winning a three-way playoff on the first hole to secure the victory.
Jimenez, 49, defended the title he won last year and became the oldest player to win on the European Tour after sinking an 18-foot birdie on the first playoff hole to beat Thailand's Prom Meesawat and Stuart Manley of Wales.
"It just gets better and better. I love Hong Kong and this course," said Jimenez, who extended his record as the oldest player to win on the European Tour to 49 years and 337 days.
Hey folks. Welcome to the new Golf Gear Review website. Hopefully I have most of the bugs worked out. If you find anything or have suggestions, email me, PM me, or post suggestions in the Site forum.
What do you do with your chin during the golf swing? I've never thought about it consistently, but remember seeing really good players always raising their chin before they initiated their swing. Working with Golf Digest, Nick Faldo recently authored an article about 10 rules for the swing, and his first was about the chin!
"Aim your chin at the ball."
What equipment did Rory McIlroy and last week's other winners use to achieve victory? We take a peek in their bags to check out the gear that earned them the big checks for the week of December 1:
Reynolds Park Golf course, located in Winston-Salem, NC, was developed by Ellis Maples, and opened to play in 1940. Minutes from downtown Winston, the golf course get a lot of play during the year. 6300 yards from the longest tee, the Par 71 course is a fun challenge for golfers of all skill levels. Recently replaced greens highlight the recent updates to the course, which also include replacement of everal bunkers and tee boxes.
Tanglewood Golf Club, located near Clemmons, NC, has 2 sister courses on premise. The most famous of the two, The Championship Course, has a storied past, including the hosting of the 1974 PGA Championship won by Lee Trevino. In 1974, Lee Trevino edged Jack Nicklaus by one-shot to win the 56th PGA Championship. Sam Sneed who was 62 years old at the time finished tied for third. The USGA Amateur Public Links Championship was played in 1986 and won by current tour player Billy Mayfair.
Starting Thursday, at the Sherwood CC, Thousand Oaks, CA, Graeme McDowell will attempt to defend his 2012 Championship. Despite a relatively small purse, a mere $3.5M, the Tiger Woods' holiday tournament is shaping up to have one of the strongest fields ever. Woods' tournament is not official. It counts only toward the world ranking.
SYDNEY (AP) -- Rory McIlroy birdied the 18th hole to beat Adam Scott at the Australian Open on Sunday, winning for the first time in 2013 and denying Scott the rare Australian triple crown.
McIlroy started the last round four shots behind Scott, but got even when he eagled the seventh and birdied the eighth.
Scott went a shot ahead with a birdie at the ninth, then the pair went shot for shot over the back nine before the tournament's dramatic finish on the final hole.
Ever played great golf for half the round of golf and started to tire on the back 9? What you eat and drink is an important and often overlooked factor in how you perform on the course. Having spent hours developing your skill in practicing at the range, it's also important to remember to eat and drink properly before and during the round.
or at least the fun (and lack of pain) you may experience.
Through the years, I've read a number of articles discussing how to improve your golf game through fitness. Clearly, if you look back 10, 20 or 30 years, professional golfers today are clearly, on averages, better physically fit and better athletes than their earlier counterparts. I doubt John Daly, in his prime, was spending very much time in the gym. He has during the latter years of his career made some adjustments to his exercise and diet but during his prime, that wasn't as much a concern.
ALL golf club grips WEAR OUT over time. The more balls you hit, the more the grips get dirty/oily and the smoother they get. Smooth grips cause you to THGHTEN your grip pressure in order to prevent the club from slipping, and the more pressure you need to apply, the worse you will play. You can and should CLEAN your grips on a regular basis to keep them oil free and clean, but at some point they just get TOO smooth for maximum performance, and they need to be replaced.

Steven Charles Stricker (born February 23, 1967) has won 12 tournaments on the PGA Tour including the 2001 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and two FedEx Cup playoff events. His most successful season on tour came in 2009, when he had three tournament victories and finished second on the money list.
