Over the Top?

Here’s an old school move that you can pick up in a lot of really dynamic swings.  It basically consists of an “in” arm path on the way back and a left arm that goes more “out and over” after transition, making room for the right arm to work  perpendicular to the spine.  Credit to [...]

Today I came home to one of the best sights of the unapologetic golfer – a rectangular shipping box!  Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic!   Assuming my wife hasn’t ordered some obscure vase or patterned umbrella it means a new golfing adventure for me.  In this case I knew what it was to [...]

  As promised, here’s Part 2 of Peter Thomson’ s Lesson.  I’ve also added great video compiled by Bradley Hughes.  I didn’t realize Thomson had so much success on the Champions Tour late in his playing days.  Let me repeat my warning that the presentation is quite slow and not well suited for the ADD [...]

“Thomo” is one of the most underrated golfers of the persimmon age but has always been one of my favorites.  I love watching his tempo in the old footage.  He could just metronome you to death with a compact, repeatable swing.  Thomson, an intellectual by nature, identified the benefits of the “ground game” early on [...]

When Justin Bieber is calling to offer Bubba congratulations, it’s clear to see his victory has transcended golf.  Why has everyone gotten so caught up in this victory?  It’s a combination of the venue, the person, and a refreshing look at a type of game which hasn’t been center stage is a while – artistic [...]

At the bottom of this post I’ve attached a reference piece that should compliment the final round of The Masters well – a detailed attack strategy laid out by The King himself.  And who better to guide us through Augusta National than the 4-times winner and one of the greatest players ever to stick a [...]

There’s something about Augusta that enables the elder statesmen of the game to let their media guards down and speak their minds.  In this year’s round of interviews we got some great stuff from Gary Player, 3-time Masters champion and newly anointed honorary starter.  And I have to say the Black Knight has it right [...]

Masters Momentos

It’s pretty well known that PGT contributor freddiec likes his Wood Bros persimmons.  That’s why I was happy (but not totally surprised) to see freddie’s most recent acquisition, a very rare “Augustan” driver created by master clubmaker Dave Wood.  Fred was able to uncover a few details about the history of this unique gem and [...]
