Fail to Prepare, Prepare to Fail

Over the last 11 years, I have not been able to play in a weekly medal. Not able to have a competitive scorecard in my hands on a weekly basis. This year there are 4 main Order of Merit events in the South Region PGA which I plan to play in. This gives a lotContinue reading “Fail to Prepare, Prepare to Fail”

Get A Grip!

So how important is the golf grip? How you hold the club? I once did back to back 10 minute lessons at The Golf Show in various locations for 2 or 3 days at a time. I changed the way 3 people gripped it out of 183 on one of those stints. One was aContinue reading “Get A Grip!”

Far and Wide

The dispersion of your shots can vary from player to player. Left to right and front to back.

Piece on Earth

2 piece, 3 piece, 4 piece golf balls? What on Earth does it mean? This is the number of layers or materials within a golf ball. I will use Srixon products as examples as I am now a stockist here in the UK. The outer layer of a golf ball is normally Surlyn, Ionomer (2Continue reading “Piece on Earth”

Have a Spine

You may or may not have come across “spine aligning” or “pured” shafts. What is it and does it help? Some say it’s not enough to worry about and there’s no data to prove or disprove its usefulness to spine align or pure a shaft. Spine aligned or pured shafts locate the spine. Then placeContinue reading “Have a Spine”
