Buy Adam Scott's house, and he'll throw in a round of golf..free!

He bought the Abu Dhabi house in 2008 before it was built, the plan being to use it as a home base while he was competing on the European Tour. He didn't end up spending any time in it, citing that as the reason why it's now on the market.

The house is 10,000 square feet, has a pool, and views of the Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and nearby ocean. It's listed at a cool $6.2 million. And if that's the kind of investment you're looking to make right now, you're going to get more than the house: Scott said he'll play a round of golf with the buyer.

Tips for controlling the trajectory of your ball

But when you have trees or wind or any other items that demand you hit a higher or lower shot than normal, there are a number of small adjustments you can make that will help Here are some tips to help you control your trajectory.

Johnny Miller on building a repeatable swing on the driving range

Some guys get good by playing a lot. Others need to dig the secrets out of the dirt -- or rather, the green plastic of a driving-range bucket. I did both. I used the range to experiment and to build a swing I had confidence in. The course was where I tested my swing to see if it held up under pressure. You probably grab an hour of range time just as often as you get to play. (Hey, you have a job, right?) So, attention, range-rats: Here's the Johnny Miller way to get the most from your practice sessions.

The difference between the two models is spin rates -- the Tour Preferred is designed to provide more spin in the mid-irons and long irons (as well as a slightly higher trajectory on shots into the green) while the Tour Preferred X provides a more penetrating flight on approach shots and slightly lower spin rates (similar spin and trajectory as the previous Lethal model).

Review of Tot Hill Farm Golf Club

I have played Tot Hill Farm Golf Club probably half a dozen times, and each time I learn yet another slight nuance of the course.

How Walter Hagen played a role in the shot 'heard round the world'

Most golf fans will have heard of Gene Sarazen's double eagle on the par-five 15th during the 1935 Masters. It has come to be known as "the shot heard 'round the world."

Finally, Hagen yelled over from the side of the fairway, "Hurry up, will ya? I've got a date tonight."
