Over the years of playing golf, I have learned a lot not just about the game but also life. Here you will find stories that I want to share with others, these stories have turned into life lessons.

The Sport That Set A Man Free

The Sport That Set A Man Free

Golf has a way of bringing total strangers together, yesterday I was able to find an example of this online. I read an article on GolfDigest where they featured a man named Valentino Dixon who was wrongfully committed of murder, to summarize it as best as I can, while in prison he decided to draw pictures of golf courses. This got the attention of Max Adler from GolfDigest, and from there they were able to look into the case and…

The Idea of Switching Clubs

The Idea of Switching Clubs

Before this weeks BMW Championship, news surfaced that Tiger Woods had went back to his old Scotty Cameron putter after trying out two other ones this year. This got me thinking, should you change clubs, and if so how often? If you are using clubs that are in terrible condition, then yes, I would say it is finally time to switch it up, but if you are someone who likes to switch them around every year this question more so…

Trouble Closing Out A Round

Trouble Closing Out A Round

Last week I decided to take a break from the blog to just play golf, some much needed golf you could say. When I wasn’t golfing, I was selling old golf clubs to try and make a bit of extra money. Thought this topic would be a great way to get back on my writing schedule, and I am hoping someone out there can relate to this. I don’t know if it’s just me, but for whatever reason towards the end…

Want To Sell Your Clubs? Do So Now

Want To Sell Your Clubs? Do So Now

For the purpose of this post, I will focus on Canada as well as other places where they are unable to golf all year round. Almost two months ago, I wrote about simple ways to save for a golf trip or any trip in that matter, and how there are so many ways to save/make extra money while at the same time not drastically changing your daily life. Today I would like to share another way of making some extra money…

A Summer Without Golf

A Summer Without Golf

This summer has been weird, difficult, strange, and that’s all due to golf. For those of you that are new to the blog, I am a student that is working full-time in my field, sure I get paid and all but I have only been able to play golf once every few weeks, if that. Our golfing season here in Canada is only about 6-7 months before the cold/winter weather starts to kick in. Thankfully, there are a couple golf…

Correcting Instead of Accepting

Correcting Instead of Accepting

Last weekend I managed to squeeze in a round of golf and ended up playing at the course I had worked at throughout high school. Usually when I play there I like to play alone later in the day as I can focus on every shot, especially the bad ones and from there take my time to correct them. Unfortunately, I went at a busy time and was paired up with another individual who I had never met. The round…

Commit To The Journey

Commit To The Journey

To read last weeks installment of this series, click here. You know its weird, in golf you meet new people whether its on the course, clubhouse, pro-shop….wherever really, and yet on many occasions that’s the last time you will see them baring any coincidence. Maybe your on vacation and get paired up with someone who you like, you both enjoy a round together and that’s it, I guess that’s part of life though, and that sometimes people come and go and…

Wrong From A Distance

Wrong From A Distance

I must say, working at a golf course had some perks, it was laid back, free golf, free food, and the ability to watch others golf throughout my shift. I think us golfers can all admit, when we see someone hit a bad shot we automatically think that person is no good, and vice versa when they hit a good shot, what we don’t realize is the situation at hand. The same can be said for judging people from a…

A Simple Acknowledgment

A Simple Acknowledgment

I thought this would be a good first story to share as it happened last month when I went to Los Angeles for a little vacation. I usually travel to Los Angeles every few years and I always end up at the Alhambra Golf Course in Alhambra, California. I have been going to this course ever since my first trip to LA which was ten years ago. The course is no championship course by any means, but its a course…
