The Yips…..A term given in the game of golf for a nervous affliction that settles in the wrist and hands after years of pressure  and the strain that builds up after playing in many big money events and bets.

HIP HIP HURRAH!

HIP HIP HURRAH!

Every DUFFER, young, old or in between wants to add distance to their drives!  Seniors especially with low swing speeds have a difficult time reaching greens in two on most par 4 holes, including myself!

The PGA Tour!

The PGA Tour!

There is only one thing from keeping me off the PGA Tour: “T A L E N T” I think there should be a  DGA  (duffers golf association) You put in more time. More rounds. More instruction.

DON’T CHOKE UP-CHOKE DOWN!

DON’T CHOKE UP-CHOKE DOWN!

It’s twice as easy to find the sweet spot! The duffers I golf with, including myself, think that the longer your driver is, the farther you will drive.  In some ways it is true for low handy cap golfers,  but for most of us it is not. The reason being, it is more difficult to […] Read more
