Relax! Have Fun…..

Relax! Have Fun…..

Relax! Golfing should be fun, not work! It was a rainy day, with winds up too 20 MPH and temperature in the fifties. Needless to say, it was a lousy day to be out knocking the white pill around! Anyway, I paid my green fee and went to the 1st tee. Standing there were two […] Read more
Pitch! Don’t Bitch…..

Pitch! Don’t Bitch…..

As duffers, when we get within pitching wedge distance of the green we tend to make three mistakes: 1. We tend to put too much weight on the left foot 2. We play the ball too far back 3. Most of us swing too steeply. The thing to remember, we are not pros, so stop […] Read more

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

The Duffers Prayer

“Whatever Your Mind Can Conceive And Believe It Can Achieve regardless of how many times you may have failed in the past.”  Those famous words by ‘Napoleon Hill’  should be called the “The Duffers Prayer”  If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron.

Visualize Your Favorite Pro

Visualize Your Favorite Pro

  While your golf swing is an act performed mechanically by your muscles, all that motion….conscious and subconscious….is controlled by your mind! Sometimes you even amaze yourself by hitting a great drive or recovery shot by being able to imagine and visualizing  the exact flight of the ball hit by your favorite pro. As duffers, Read more
