Jordan Spieth’s Spit Spat

March 8, 2016

World No. 1 Jordan Spieth says he has a Rules question no one can seem to answer. In an article posted recently on golfchannel.com, Spieth explained that when greens get “shiny,” his Scotty Cameron putter has a tendency to slip on the ground. So when he practices, Spieth says he wets the bottom of the putter for added traction, either with a towel or by licking his thumb and rubbing it on…

Who says the pros don’t get nervous? I watched Adam Scott shank a bunker shot on 16 and almost rinse his approach shot on 18 on his way to winning the WCG-Cadillac Championship.

73-79-152… I Passed the PAT!

March 7, 2016

To earn your PGA Class A Certification, at some point you have to pass your Playing Ability Test (PAT) through the PGA of America. It’s offered about once a quarter in Arizona, and take it from me, it’s not easy. By design, the test is as much mental as it is physical. It’s 36 holes in the same day, back-to-back rounds, and you have to shoot a target score. Today’s event…

The Best Golf Commercial I’ve Ever Seen

March 7, 2016

Let me start by saying I’ve never lived in a state or a climate cold enough where not playing golf was my reality. I grew up in Arizona and moved to Louisiana, then South Carolina, and back to Arizona. I’ve only ever shoveled snow twice, so I don’t know what it’s like to look outside and see nothing but snow and ice for miles. That sounds pretty miserable! If you’re…

Todd Sones is a Golf Digest Top 50 and Golf Magazine Top 100 Instructor. He also serves on the Golf Academy of America’s National Advisory Board and says to make a change, often a player has to feel something exaggerated in order to make that change – no matter what part of his game he’s working on.

Getting Fitted by Hank Haney

March 3, 2016

It all started with a text message. On Thursday night, one of my classmates who works at Golfsmith in North Scottsdale texted me, “You want to meet Hank Haney?” All I texted back was “When?” But inside, I was thinking, “Gee, let me think. Do I want to meet legendary golf instructor Hank Haney? Uh… Yeah!” Haney is in town for a few days re-shooting every instructional video he’s ever…

Guest Speaker: GolfTEC VP of Instruction and Education

March 2, 2016

Andy Hilts has an interesting story. After graduating from the PGA Golf Management (PGM) Program at Mississippi State and then going to work at a golf course, Andy accepted a job as a coach at the golf instruction company GolfTEC. That was 16 years ago, at a time when GolfTEC was still in its infancy and had only two instructional centers. Over the next six years, Andy proceeded to teach more than…

Putting Drills You Can Do Indoors

March 1, 2016

I’m currently living in Arizona, so thankfully, I don’t know what it’s like not to be able to go outside and practice because of the weather. But I know it’s not this nice for everyone. Up north and back east, it can get pretty chilly this time of year! EyeLine Golf is a company I’ve trusted for a while now. I’ve purchased several of their training aids over the years to help…
