Too restrictive or too loose of a shirt will definitely affect a player’s ability to fully complete the movements required during their swing.

Fantasy Golf Leagues

Do you belong to any Fantasy Golf Leagues? I do. A couple of years back, just for fun, I decided to join four of them from PGA Tour Fantasy Golf.

Too Much Faith In One Golf Club

In my early golf years, I carried a full set of clubs, but never came close to hitting more that 5 or 6 during any round.
