Is the Secret to Golf in Your Hands?

Ben Hogan Hands

I think I can help you play better golf, but you'll have to apply the concepts! I'm going to do something I thought I never would - offer golf advice. I know this is risky territory, after all who am I to be giving anyone golf advice. I'm not a pro and I've never taught. Heck, I'm not even a scratch player. On the other hand, I've been on a search for a competitive and repetitive golf swing for … [Read more...]

Golf Performance Nutrition: Eggs

Pasture raised hens

  Whole eggs from healthy fowl are one of the most nutritious foods on earth but are all eggs really the same? I have a full chapter on “Golf Power Nutrition” in my new book, 101 Ways to Increase Your Golf Power and wanted to talk about just one “Power Nutrition” tip today. I know, many (misled) nutritionists (and doctors) have conned us into staying away from eggs because they … [Read more...]

Perfect Tee-Height with Tee Tac

tee tac golf

I came upon this unique golf product recently called, Tee Tac, which allows you to set a consistent ball height EVERY time. WHY DO WE NEED IT I guess the first question that might come to mind is “Why do we care about setting our golf ball height anyway?” Of course, the answer is consistency but what does that actually mean. Say, for example, you normally hit your driver 220 yards on the … [Read more...]

Win $1,000,000 While Watching the Masters!

my fantasy golf teams

Would you like to win $1,000,000 watching the Master’s. Sounds good to me, maybe it does for you, too. The fee to pick your own team with the chance to win $1M is $20 - not a bad deal. There’s been some chatter about Fantasy golf the last few weeks in a number of Google+ Groups I’m involved with. I used to play a little bit. I actually won $100 the very first time I played but slid downhill … [Read more...]

Mizuno MP-T5 Wedge

IMG_0441

First, my disclaimer; I play Mizuno irons (paid for with my own money) and love them. Most every golf club reviewer remarks on the wonderful feel of Mizuno forged irons because of the steel they use and their Grain Flow technology. I won't try to explain why it works, but it creates a great feeling club face and you'll know it as soon as you hit one flush. Mizuno's new MP-T5 wedge series uses … [Read more...]

Cigars, Scotch and Golf

Cohiba Cigars

There's nothing like the smell of a good cigar wafting through the air while playing a round of golf. That pungent smell of tobacco, oak, pepper and sometimes chocolate. Of course, the smell varies on the type, age and brand of the stogey but I know it quite well. I grew up with my father smoking cigars almost everywhere. In the house, when we went to drive-in movies in our old station … [Read more...]

What is Your Golf System?

Golf System

What is a golf system? Do you have one? Is it producing results for you? if not, you probably should look for a new one. I’ve been giving a lot of thought to systems and how they can produce very predictable results. I know — “systems” seems like such a dry, clinical, corporate word, something that business analysts at IBM or Intel sling around with an impetuous fury. But think about it … [Read more...]

101 Ways to Increase your Golf Power

Tom Watson takeaway

This is an excerpt from the 1st chapter of the new and soon-to-be-released book, 101 Ways to Increase your Golf Power called Golf Power Swing Keys. I wanted to write this book because I could not really find it anywhere. If you're looking for more power, distance and lower scores this might be for you. However, I could only find bits and pieces here and there. So I tried to put all the best … [Read more...]

fan's eye view AT&T

AT&T’s “Fan’s Eye View” was a huge success this year at the 30th Annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am won this year by Brandt Snedeker. The weather, I might add, was unbelievably spectacular this year with bright, sunny days in the mid 70’s. Musician Huey Lewis said it was the nicest weather he has experienced in playing the Pro-Am for over 25 years! As I mentioned in a previous post … [Read more...]
