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.

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…

8 Tips That Will Help You Win in Match Play

8 Tips That Will Help You Win in Match Play

No matter what format of golf, I will always play, however over the years I have found match play to be my favourite. One of the reasons is because I have found it more competitive and the match stays that way throughout the round. Whenever I play against anyone I always suggest match play, as this gives golfers of all levels a better chance to compete. I thought it would be a good idea to share a few pieces of…
