What Is The Most Important Club In Golf?

What Is The Most Important Club In Golf?

I remember when I was 12 I had played in a tournament and one of the officials told me that, “the most important shot in golf is the next one” and my younger self was amazed at the time. I’m sure many of you have heard this expression before, and for good reason. I always keep this saying in the back of my mind during each round I play, to remind myself to always focus on the next shot no…

What Starting A Golf Blog Has Taught Me

What Starting A Golf Blog Has Taught Me

A couple week ago, I had written about how starting this golf blog has really tested my patience. This blog is now two months old and I have really enjoyed this journey, from writing about lessons from the links, course reviews, and even saving tips, I must say this has been fun. But like when starting anything new, you are always hesitant at first, you may begin to compare yourself (or in my case my blog) to others, or might…

Difficult Golf Shots To Practice

Difficult Golf Shots To Practice

Although nothing is ever perfect, I am a firm believer that consistent practice can lead to improvement, and the same can be said for golf. We are always told to go to the driving range to work on our game, and there is nothing wrong with that, but the driving range can’t prepare you for adversity. Instead, I suggest going on the course during twilight hours when its less busy and practice the “tricky” or should I say difficult shots….

Want To Test Your Patience? Start A Blog

Want To Test Your Patience? Start A Blog

Let me tell you, starting a golf blog will test your patience, then again starting anything will. It’s been almost two months since I started liveandbreathegolf.com and just like anything else, getting started was the hardest part. I had spent almost two months prior contemplating whether to even sign up with a hosting site. But I finally convinced myself, no matter how bad I thought I was at writing. When comparing my site to other major golf blogs, traffic wise…

To Spend Money on New Clubs or Lessons?

To Spend Money on New Clubs or Lessons?

Last weekend was hot, way too hot. I wrote about it in my last post here. I was at the course for probably half an hour before I decided to spend the rest of the day near the AC, but before I left, I saw someone who was taking lessons on the putting green. I could hear their conversation and the student had mentioned that this was his second lesson as he was new to golf and had yet to…

Too Hot Out, Should My Golf Cart Be Free?

Too Hot Out, Should My Golf Cart Be Free?

Weather wise, this past weekend was absolutely brutal….and that itself is an understatement as to how hot it was. As if falling asleep or getting into the car were tough enough, the idea of carrying clubs for a whole round sounded ridiculous to even think about. But I did, or at least tried to. I had planned to play two rounds this past weekend at different courses and cancelled both tee times the second I walked outside, I told myself…

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…
