Patrick Reed Looking to Go All Beast Mode

reed-16-cup

With the temps in the teens and the snow coming down here in the Hudson Valley watching the pros playing at Kapaula is a welcome sight and a tonic for my winter blues. Half of the 2016 winning American Ryder Cup Team is taking advantage of the wonderful Hawaiian weather so there was bound to be a few conversations concerning the overdue American triumph. Rex Hoggard of the Golf Channel spent a few minutes with the emotional heart of the… Continue Reading

A Great Holiday Tradition: Prime Time Golf from Hawaii

kapalua18

The past few weeks have been full of family, food and fun as our holiday traditions started in mid December and spread right through to early January. It has been great and another of our traditions takes center stage this week: prime time golf from Hawaii. Oh, how I have come to treasure the PGA Tour’s early start in paradise at the SBS Tournament of Champions. It’s just the fix needed for a golf starved, house bound fanatic. I am… Continue Reading

My Golf Game: All About Fun

fun-hat

I’ve been purposely laying low as far as all things golf go since my last round in November. An aching elbow needed some rest and quite honestly I needed a break both physically and mentally from this game that I let consume me. Winter in the Northeast isn’t conducive to anyone’s golf game and while a trip to the indoor golf simulator appeases many a golf appetite it doesn’t do it for me. So I usually make do with some… Continue Reading

2017 Brings New Golf Deals

woods-balls

Ah, 2017 has arrived and with it a new golf season. Sorry PGA Tour, the calendar still dictates to me when a new year begins not the slew of fall tournaments that are (in)conveniently assigned to the next year…that doesn’t work for me. This new year brings with it not only the fresh hopes of every golfer both pro and amateur but there have been a ton of new equipment and endorsement deals among the big names in the game.… Continue Reading

Ice, Ice, Baby… Knucklehead Style

ice

Golfers are a dedicated and determined bunch.  We play through all kinds of conditions and a little cold weather wasn’t about to stop this determined golfer.  Normally this guys ball would be at the bottom of this pond but a nice smooth coating of ice allowed him to play from this “water hazard.”  Stupid move. He chunks it, slips, falls, bounces off the ice and then breaks through as his buddies snicker at his bonehead move. What a knucklehead.  You… Continue Reading

Chip Shots from My Couch

trump-nick

It’s official: I’ve played my last round of 2016.  Freezing temps have closed all the courses in the Hudson Valley and as I am writing this snow is falling outside.  But that didn’t stop me from walking a few holes today. Instead of a boring walk through the neighborhood I headed up to James Baird State Park, an old Robert Trent Jones design and choose to walk a few holes (without clubs) to get myself off the couch and maybe… Continue Reading

Four Rounds, No Pain = Success for Tiger

tw-driver

Tiger Woods may have finished fifteenth out of eighteen golfers this week and stumbled with his final round 76 but as strange as it may sound his week at the Hero World Challenge was a success. True, Tiger always plays with the expectation of winning and would normally never consider looking up at fourteen golfers a successful week but it certainly was. Stats wise he was hitting the ball a long ways, finding plenty of fairways, stiffing his irons and… Continue Reading

Matsuyama Takes Hero World Challenge

hidekitrophy1268

The boys at NBC and The Golf Channel were hoping for a charge from Tiger Woods today at the Hero World Challenge but it was not to be. Woods was too far back to make it interesting and he had the poorest round of his comeback week. Hideki Matsuyama was the man instead as he continued his superb recent play and topped this elite field of golfers. Matsuyama finished his week with a one over 73 but that was enough… Continue Reading

Saturday Swing Tip: Fade It Like a Pro

saturday-swing-tip-4-250x175

Dustin Johnson has been killing the ball for years.  He’s consistently one of the longest hitters on tour and has plenty of PGA Tour wins to show for it. But he never won a major until he learned to hit a fade.  He started playing more of a fade this season and he captured his first major, the U.S. Open and was PGA Tour Player of the Year. A draw isn’t everything.  Watch and learn how to hit that real,… Continue Reading
