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.

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.
Here's a closer look at scenarios to win the FedExCup. Listed beside each player is his current rank at East Lake and where that mark projects him in the FedExCup standings.
Billy Horschel (Currently T1; projected 1st)
• If he wins the TOUR Championship, he wins the FedExCup
• If Jim Furyk wins the TOUR Championship, Horschel wins the FedExCup by finishing solo second
• If Rickie Fowler wins the TOUR Championship, Horschel can win the FedExCup by finishing in a three-way tie for second

Casey's win came less than two weeks after his partner gave birth to their first son.
"First tournament as a dad and first win as a dad," Casey said after his victory at the Kennemer Golf & Country Club.
An extract from: - The Successful Golfer - Golf Psychology Book
The Successful Golfer | Golf Sport Psychology BookThe pre-shot routine is a physical and mental sequence of actions to help golfers remain focused on the task at hand to play shots consistently well. Though the best golfers in the world might differ in the style of their swing, you will notice a similar sequence of actions for every shot. For instance, they will have a certain number of practice swings before setting up to the ball followed by a specific number of glances toward the target.

Dustin Johnson is serving a six-month suspension from the PGA Tour after testing positive for cocaine, a source has told Golf.com.
According to the source, Johnson has failed three drug tests: one for marijuana in 2009 and two for cocaine, in 2012 and 2014. He was previously suspended for the 2012 failed test, but that suspension was never made public. Under the PGA Tour’s drug-testing policies, the Tour is not required to announce any disciplinary actions against players who test positive for recreational drugs.
The R&A also announced that the Open has been awarded to Royal Birkdale in 2017 and Carnoustie in 2018. Royal Birkdale last hosted in 2008 and Carnoustie in 2007. Padraig Harrington won them both.

Five-time champion Tom Watson will get his Open Championship exemption extended by one year so he can conclude his career at St. Andrews with a 40th-anniversary appearance in the tournament.
Watson, 64, was scheduled to play his last Open later this month at Royal Liverpool, but the R&A announced the added year on Tuesday during a news conference at the Greenbrier Classic, where up to four players could qualify for the tournament based on a top-12 finish this week.
The fade is a great shot to have in your arsenal of shots for your next round. Like most golfers, I started out hitting a fade - ok - many times a slice, but through the years and the advent of new technology on the clubs, I'm now hitting the baby draw most of the time. But many of the courses I play have holes intended for the left to right ball flight. So I've been trying to figure out, in the day of draw-bias drivers, the best way to hit a controlled fade off the tee. After trying several different things, this is what seems to work the best for me:
