Happy holidays everyone! Still on vacation visiting the parents and inlaws but did have a chance to break free for a short time and do some catchup around the world of golf.  I was happy to see this trailer for Bernard Darwin’s “The Golf Courses of the British Isles”.  I’ll definitely be tuning in.  There [...]

Forum member Chris contributed this great video of Mark O’Meara swinging and discussing his old Hogan persimmon driver.  What I like about this video is that it’s different from some of the other features I’ve seen where a young tour player is just handed a persimmon driver.  They don’t usually hit them well but to [...]
