    Every year seems to see a vast new range of clubs released that promise untold benefits over even just last year’s incarnation. Golf technology develops rapidly and it is always tempting to want to have the newest gear.

    However, if you are considering a change of clubs, why not be sure you are doing it for the right reasons. Do you really need a new set of clubs, or would spending that money on something else be of more benefit to your game?

    Mind Over Putter to Better Your Golf Score

    March 31st, 2017

    “They say every golfer is just two shots away from crazy. One bad shot you can deal with. Two in a row and you go nuts. I try to stop the cycle after one”.

    These are the words of Joseph Parent, PhD, author of Zen Golf: Mastering the Mental Game. This golf book is one of the numerous publications which have emphasized on the importance of mind in the game of golf.

    The mind is a conundrum for any golfer. It enables the golfer to play with concentration and focus. At the same time, it entices emotions like anxiety and tension. There is a fine line which separates the two and it is necessary for a golfer to maintain a balance between the two.

    Top Tips to Prepare Yourself For The Summer Golf Season

    March 22nd, 2017

    Golfers are generally hardy souls and there are a number in our ranks that will play whatever the weather, come rain, wind or shine all year round. These dedicated souls are the ones you see out on the course, brollies in hand in the middle of December, still cheerful and still enjoying the game.

    Yet there is also a significant number of golfers who do put the clubs away for the winter. Some take a break because they don’t like playing in the poorer weather, or for others in cooler climes weather conditions make it impossible for play.

    If this is you, then you’ll know that it is around this time of the year as the days start to get longer, that we first think about dragging the clubs out and heading back out onto the course when the spring weather arrives.

    Are You Fit For Golf?

    February 28th, 2017

    One of the biggest and most appealing aspects of golf is that it can be played by almost anybody. There are many different clubs that help people with a wide range of disabilities play the game and as long as you can swing a golf club, then in theory at least, you can play the game to some degree.

    However, as increasing numbers of golfers are realising, there is a difference in being fit to play golf and being fit enough to play golf to the maximum of your ability.

    Does My Choice Of Golf Ball Matter?

    February 2nd, 2017

    What kind of golfer are you when it comes to the golf ball you select to play with each round? Do you always have the same ball, same brand, same variety that you have used religiously for many years and won’t even contemplate changing, or are you a golfer who reaches into the bag and grabs any ball that comes to hand to tee of with?

    It’s an interesting question because when I think back to playing a few rounds with my friends over the last few summers, I have a mix within that group and oddly enough, the mix is not based on ability with the golf ball.

    April 24th, 2015

    Golf will once again take its place in the Olympics in Rio 2016 after several years of lobbying to have the sport put back on the Olympic roster, but with IOC Olympic Vice President John Coates stating last April that preparations for the Rio Olympics were the ‘worst’ he had ever seen, how are things looking now?

    Why EA Sports Announcement Merely Confirms The Obvious: Tiger’s Days Are Numbered

    April 17th, 2015

    For 15 years, for many console enthusiasts, there has only been one golf game worth its salt to play and that has been EA Sports Tiger Woods golf in all its various formats and incarnations.

    Over the past 15 years, through sales alone, the game series has raised an estimated $771 million in revenue for EA Sports and has proven an equally lucrative deal for Woods, who lent his name and image to secure the deal and who, at conservative estimates, has earned tens of millions of dollars through this one endorsement alone.
