For the first time in almost 50 years, this year's Masters tournament may have more than 100 entrants. With the current qualifications rules, and the new wrap-around schedule, we already have more than 90 qualified and we're still in January. Not since 1966 when 103 golfers competed have the pairings at Augusta topped 100.
There are 18 ways to qualify for the Masters right now and 14 golfers were added to the 2014 field at the end of December based on rule 17 ("The 50 leaders on the Final Official World Golf Ranking for the previous calendar year").

We've all done it. When playing a good or great round, we lose it. Whether we can't hit the driver or whether it's shanking irons, we've all had those rounds where all of the sudden, without warning, our golf swing goes...somewhere. Why? Where does our golf game go and why did it leave?
Well, it's not gone anywhere. it's there. Just buried beneath the weight of all those things inside our head. Clearly if we had the physical ability to 'do it' right for 14 holes, we should be able to finish out the round with it. Right?

Saw this on PGATOUR.COM
"Phil Mickelson will have a new Callaway driver in the bag at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. After spending a good portion of last season employing a driver-less setup — Mickelson used Callaway's taller-faced X Hot 3Deep fairway wood as his "driver" to win the British Open and Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open — Mickelson confirmed he would be carrying a 9.5-degree Big Bertha Alpha for the first time.

Though the weather outside may be frightful, practice indoors can be delightful. Indoor golf drills can help you keep your game sharp in the off season so that you don't spend several months in the spring getting back to the level you were playing at in the fall.

Ring in the new year with explosive new drivers loaded with adjustability. 2014 preview of new drivers by adams callaway cleveland cobra nike ping taylormade
Adjustability. Low spin. Fitting. More loft. These are the buzzwords for drivers in 2014. Clubmakers have been preaching for years that a "high launch, low spin" flight path will lead to longer drives. Golf Magazine's exclusive player test reveals that new-for-2014 drivers are more "low spin" than ever.

Here's a list of common foods and drinks you should avoid during your round of golf
1. HOT DOGS
Most dogs are awful. High in sodium and saturated fat, natural beef jerky or a bowl of chili are two healthier alternatives.

All golfers can benefit from better nutrition and proper hydration because these factors play a significant role in energy availability and utilization. When you eat foods high in carbohydrates, (These are mostly white foods such as potatoes, sugar, flour, and rice.) you will feel tired and won’t be able to think properly because these foods turn to sugar rapidly and move into your nervous system quickly. When there is too much sugar in your system, the pancreas secretes insulin to decrease the glucose (sugar) levels.

Ok, if someone asks you , I bet most of you can tell your friends how many birdies you had in your last round, and how many Pars, how many lost balls and probably how many putts you took. And some of you may already be tracking your greens in regulation (GIR) and fairways in regulation (FIR), and Up-and-Downs or Sandies. Great. Many of us use those to help us gauge our round and how well we played. As we approach the 2014 season, I would suggest that, while it may seem inconvenient to do so, there are other statistics you should track in each round.

Boo Weekley may be the modern day John Daly. He's the working man's PGA Tour Pro. Though that might be where the similarities between Boo and John end, as I doubt we'll see Boo sponsoring for Hooters (What would his grandparents think?) or in jail for public intoxication. But Boo has lost his tour card before and had to fight his way back, much like Steve Stricker did. So maybe that's a better comparison, Boo to Steve,

So a local course had the Titleist team at the course recently, doing Titleist ball fitting. So I scheduled a 30 minute session to see what ball they would recommend for me. Now I had done the "talk" version of this a couple times, as recent as a few weeks ago at the Wyndham tour event where Titleist had a tent setup to promote their golf balls. They always tell me to play the ProV1x. So I was curious what the true fitting process would suggest.
No other golfer in history has played as well after starting so late in life. Travis didn't touch a golf club until he was 35, and less than a month later he won his first tournament, and two years later he reached the semi-finals of the U.S. Amateur Championships.
By Travis' 39th birthday he had won his first of three U.S. Amateurs and was the first American golfer to travel to Great Britain and win the British Amateur Championship.
