Moving Day at the 100th PGA Championship

Who can stop Brooks Koepka? He is playing extremely well, especially off the tee; his booming drives and stellar wedge play makes him the odds on favorite to win today. The Wanamaker Trophy will be his third Major in three years, but how he is winning is setting a new standard on the PGA Tour. Continue reading

Gary Woodland Leads The Way at the PGA Championship

The first round of the 100th PGA Championship did not reveal any surprises. Gary Woodland is leading and has one win on tour this year, but he is a bit of a surprise. He is a journeyman player and had a great round. It will be interesting to see if he can put together three more.

I had indicated before that one of the top 15 in the world will win and I stick by that assessment. Bellerive is beautiful, lush, and long, but nothing dangerous about it; as such, I found the scores on par with any other professional event outside of the other Majors. I am sure that there was some stellar golf being played, but I did not get the feel that excitement of Major golf. Am I missing something? Continue reading

Overwhelmed By An Awesome Gesture!

I have a blessed life! The random support I receive from my friends is amazing and every once in a while I become overwhelmed. I talked about my local golfing buddies who marked their golf ball and sent me pictures. That was a good day!

On Friday, I received a surprising tweet from Mike Johnny from 36aday golf blog. (if you have not dropped by his site, I recommend you do) Mike and I found each other’s blog a few years back and subsequently met at the Toronto Golf show in 2016. We talk regularly online about golf and our conversations are always positive. Well, Mike’s tweet caught me by surprise as I was overwhelmed with gratitude.  Continue reading

Buying Old Second-Hand Golf Clubs

Recently, I have decided to buy some old golf clubs. They are not something I would take to the links, but they will fit my intended purpose. As you are aware, golf is a big part of my life. Because of that, many of my friends indulge my passion and from time to time will hit the range with me. Additionally, when they bring their kids for a visit, golf seems to be a topic of conversation. As such, I thought it would be a great idea to purchase something that the kids can hit without worry about damaging the clubs.  Continue reading

Improving Your Golf Game: Quality Versus Quantity

Everyone I know plays golf to either fun, exercise and to improve. I guess this is a pretty simple approach to this amazing sport and very golfers fall outside these categories. Actually, many use all three as motivation to hit the links on a regular basis. Over the years, we have discussed many barriers to why we struggle with improving, but most of those seem to break down to the time available to play or practice. I can appreciate this challenge which is why I was thinking about whether we use our precious time appropriately to effectively improve our game. Hence the thought of quality versus quantity as an important discussion for many golfers. Continue reading
