To chip or to pitch: is there a difference? - We will first talk about our options. Your first choice should be to putt the ball. If you can't putt it for whatever reason, your next option is to chip. A chip shot is a low-running shot that has a low trajectory, hits the ground, releases and rolls like a putt to the hole. For this shot, the ball position is very important; it should be aft of ... Full Story

Options for the short game - The more options golfers have around the greens, the better their chance of scoring. The scoring range is from 60 yards and in. The more efficient you are, the lower your scores will be. When your ball is on the fringe close to the green, your first option should be to use your putter.

Good course management - Good course management will save you strokes. The more you know about the course you are playing, the better equipped you will be to score. Keep in mind, though, not every hole is a driver hole. Some holes are more position holes, meaning position off the tee is more important than length. If a hole is very narrow from the tee, you should focus o... Full Story

To fit or not to fit, that is the question. - Do fitted golf clubs really make a difference? To answer that question, just ask any tour player or good amateur player. The answer will be unequivocally, yes. Does that mean that a fitted set of clubs is going to make you a scratch player immediately? No, it does not. Will it help you elevate your game? Yes, it will. In my opinion, and everything... Full Story

Ball position - Ball position is something that I think is very overlooked or just taken for granted. I feel it is extremely important to know where the ball is relative to the bottom of the swing. That spot may differ from player to player, because of the amount of forward lateral movement each player has. You need to find the best position for you. On all full... Full Story

How should I practice? - You should practice wisely, just like the expression "working smart." After you've warmed up, you should approach your practice session in the same manner you would a round of golf. You want to hit practice shots the same way you would hit shots on the course. You need to train yourself on the range to do what you expect on the golf course. Use th... Full Story

So You Want To Play Golf-Part 2 - So, now that you've made the commitment to play golf, here are some suggestions on what to do next. It would be very helpful for you to develop a good practice routine. Plan your time wisely. Let's say you have five hours a week to devote to practicing.

So You Want To Play Golf - Part 1 - The best advice that I could give anyone wishing to play the greatest game of all is this: I would suggest you go to a range and just begin to hit some golf balls, mimicking what you think you saw on TV or what you believe you witnessed your friends doing.
