We'll be acquiring a SAM PuttLab Pro very soon. I'm very excited to look into this. It's not an inexpensive item, but it will be put to good use in our downtown facility, I can bet you that!

Nuun Tablets

Has anyone tried Nuun tablets? They're quite tasty.

Hinging actions do not control ball flight, curve, trajectory, etc. A ball struck with matched impact parameters will fly exactly the same whether you've employed horizontal hinging or vertical hinging or angled hinging. Hinging actions can determine what's come before, and that is how they express a change in the ball flight - not what […]

From 2-0. General (Quote)

The Three Imperatives and Essentials operate to correct faulty procedures.

And I wanted to share it here as well, as it's important and relevant. Every good instructor has a method. A method is "a procedure, technique, or way of doing something, especially in […]

Steve Jobs, 1997 WWDC Keynote

Shot 80. Yep, 80. In a Pro-Am. Dave tells me "weird things happen in tournaments that don't normally happen" and this was the case for me. I had two bogeys going into the sixth hole (bounced a wedge over a green, tried to cut a shot with the ball a foot above my feet, dumb) […]
