Golf Is Exercise!

I have often been told that golf is not really a sport because it is not active enough……says a person who has never swung a golf club. Regardless of your skill level, walking the golf course is great exercise and should not be discounted out of hand. Most courses I play are measured at an average of 6300 yards. That is a minimum of 6300 steps if I walk in a complete straight line. Of course, we know that never happens, so I walk a great deal more during every round. How about your?

Trying To Groove My Golf Swing

What does “find my swing groove” really mean? I did a fair bit of research and I came up with about 1000 different answers.

Totally Confused With How To Play A Golf Shot

Through the course of 6000+ golf shots I take each year, I can honestly say that I might be confused on how to play a golf shot a couple of times.

But, every so often (actually rarely) I am confused or dumbfounded on how to play a shot. I know this sounds crazy, but it happens!
