Wedge Bounce

So I was reading the March '15 issue of GD and Chris O'Connell has an article on there on short game and essentially say's not to pick the wedge you wil use for a shot just off the loft of the club but to make your choice based off the bounce the shot needs.   Uphill shots you choose a high bounce (probably lower lofted) club and let the uphill add the loft that you lose by going with the lower lofted club.  The extra bounce gives you some "help" in that you can hit behind the ball a little and the bounce keeps the club from digging in immediately.  Whereas a downhill shot needs a lower bou

Golf Galaxy Lessons

So I took my first lessons at Golf Galaxy today.  The instructor is a PGA certified instructor to some level, but I don't quite understand all the levels.  Anyway the 2 main reaosns I went there were price (for a 6 pack the lessons at $33/each for a half hour) and the tech.  I wanted to get more detailed information on my launch data than I get from my normal instructor.  That being said, when I watched the video of my swing and we went through the root issues, it was many of the same things I have heard before.  

Patrick Reed wins in Hawaii, in a playoff over Jimmy Walker

How did Patrick Reed force a playoff? This hole out eagle on No. 16 certainly helped. Watch:

KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) -- Patrick Reed holed an 80-yard shot for eagle and made two birdies over his last four holes Monday. The last birdie was on the 18th hole in a playoff to beat Jimmy Walker in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Ping Announces New Driver, Wedge and Putter for 2015

A New Year and a new driver from Ping.  Haven't seen it yet but based on the reviews I've read it generates more ball speed than the G25.    Does it seem like they are pushing drivers out faster now than they used too?  Does to me.  But I guess that's the market now.  What was the best last year now isn't, so you need to buy buy buy.

The first task force has met about how to build a winning Ryder Cup program

I just have to say I don't see where a task force is going to 'fix' the problem.   I mean I understand that Ryder Cup preparation is more than just sending guys out to play golf.  And Ok, having a 'team comradery' and such may make the guys come together, but at the end of the day, you win by the players going out and hitting golf shots and making putts.  So other than thinking through how to do the pairings, which even then, doesn't matter unless players hit shots, I just don't see where this task force is going to change the end result.  My ability to hit a shot isn't baed on who I hung o

58! It happened....but in Euro Q-school

John Hahn was one better than golf's magic number with a 12-under 58 in the fourth round of Q-school on the European Tour on Tuesday.

Hahn, an American who finished No. 120 on the European Tour this year, made 12 birdies on the shorter Tour Course at the PGA Catalunya Resort. The European Tour said it would not count as a record because preferred lies were allowed in the soggy conditions.

Hahn started on the back nine and opened with five straight birdies. He put together four straight birdies around the turn and closed with a tap-in birdie for 58.

My own yardage book

So I'm getting ready to hit the links in Myrtle Beach for the annual guy's golf trip. 9 guys from work heading down to play for 3 days. There will be lots of friendly ribbing and chastising at the unbelievable golf shots that will take flight. My game has been a roller-coaster lately, feast or famine. I could shot 78 one day and 87 the next. And if the round starts off poorly, it can take it's toll on my mental game. So this year, I am arming myself with a custom yardage book, that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the golf courses we will play.

No Ryder Cup but $13M in just over 3 weeks...not a bad trade

Just three weeks ago, Billy Horschel had every reason to start looking ahead to next season.

He had missed the cut in the first FedEx Cup playoff event to fall to No. 82 in the standings. He only had two top 10s all year, scant evidence that he was on the verge of something special. He was weeks away from becoming a father.

What followed was the best golf of his life, and a payoff that was more than he could grasp.

Billy Horschel wins the Tour Championship which also gives him a FedEx Cup title and a $10 million bonus.
