US Loss in the Ryder Cup: The Tip of the IceBerg

Here’s the deal. The US sucks as a team in the Ryder Cup. I think this is more systemic to the player development level. It comes down the players, not ‘team’. They have lost 5 out of the last 6 Ryder Cups, and will continue to lose unless they recognize some key facts that are unfolding in the world of Professional Golf: Namely, Europe has Player Development Figured Out, while the USGA and the PGA are failing Miserably. 5 out of the top 6 players in the world are international. The only American in that 6, Jim Furyk, has an […]

The quickest way to lower scores: create more speed & raw distance

Want to Score lower? Hit it Further, and maybe even into the rough. It’s that Simple.

It was short-sided, incomplete, and quite frankly irresponsible. Ben Hogan said over 40 years ago that the average golfer should be able to break 80 consistently. Then why is it that the average handicap in the US is 18? That’s and average of 90! […]

Fear, the Yips, and the Sea of Cortez

Afraid of skulling it over the green and into the Sea of Cortez? You’re not alone.   Short shots around the green, that sit perched upon tightly mown Bermuda grass,  have a way of instilling fear in those with even the most astute of wedge games. It is these shots, of only about 15-20 yards, where a half an inch can mean the difference between glory, or a golf ball rocketed over the back of the green that will eventually find the Sea of Cortez if you are playing here in Los Cabos, Mexico. Some folks have a little fear, […]
