Lifestyle Par for the Course

The Short Game

The fastest way to better your score is to improve your short game from 100 yards in. If you watch the best golfers in the world, they all miss the fairway around 30% of the time, but from within 100 yards, they expect to knock it close to the pin every time. This is golf's "scoring zone.” It separates the winners from the losers, the low handicappers from everyone else.

Starting the New Golf Season

Starting the New Golf Season

For most of the golfers in the U.S., it is finally time to get out on the course again. The beginning of another golf season will bring the same old challenges as every year: rusty swings, chunky chip shots, and terrible putts are awaiting us all. Chances are, it will take a dozen rounds or so before the swing and short game come back, but there are some steps that can minimize the damage.

Some golfers think they’re just for decoration. Well, they’re not. There’s a practical reason why golf balls have dimples. It has to do with the aerodynamics of drag.

How to Put Spin on Your Golf Ball

Everyone wants to do it – we watch the pros on TV each week hit a golf ball onto the green and suddenly… what?...  the ball backs up! To do this we need back spin! But just how do we go about spinning the ball so it does this?
