Playing Great When the Going Gets Slow

It’s hard to have a bad day on the golf course. Even if you’re not playing great, I’m sure you’ll agree that any time spent on the course is enjoyable. With one exception… When the round takes forever.  Now, I often slow down to enjoy the game and analyse my shots (I’ve even been making an effort to walk the course more often, instead of using the cart!) BUT, when

[INTERVIEW] Alex Davidson Talks Rory McIlroy’s Dramatic Season

Photo Credit: Philip Wilson   On Victory at Valhalla  This weekend witnessed Rory McIlroy consolidating his recent World No 1 status with a dramatic finale at Valhalla. Battling back from his poor start, McIlroy’s victory was by no means secure and at times even seemed doubtful.

In an effort to help UGA members reach their scoring goals, I’ve laid out a three-step plan to quickly move

You may never get to a point where you’re chipping-in consistently, but, there’s a few things you can do to improve your chances.   #1 Pick the Right Time Some chip shots are more likely to be made

[INTERVIEW] Alex Davidson Talks Rory’s Return at The British Open

On Rory’s Return to Form Yesterday 25-year-old Rory McIlroy secured a historic victory with a two-shot lead at The British Open. This weekend has marked a huge win for McIlroy, seeing him bumped up to World No 2, joining the record books and now on track for the Grand Slam (what a hectic few months he’s had!). Holding the Claret Jug, McIlroy entered the record books alongside Nicklaus and Woods as

Look Up for Open Space

Okay – so you’ve hit a bad drive and find yourself in the trees trying to find a path to the green. It happens to all of us.  Unfortunately, you aren’t finding much open space in front of you and are facing the possibility of pitching out sideways to the fairway. Sure, it’s a decent option… But it’s essentially the same as taking a penalty stroke.    Before you give

[INTERVIEW] Alex Davidson Talks Tiger Woods’ Return

On Tiger Woods’ Return to the Game  My eyes were glued to the screen this weekend at the Quickens Loans National, with the anticipated return of Tiger Woods. Since undergoing surgery for a pinched nerve in his back, this marked the player’s first tournament after a 3-month absence.
