I must admit, I get lazy with my golf swing and can easily fall into a kind of default when it comes to the top of the backswing. For that is the point when my body needs to stretch to its maximum capacity. And those last few words are most important because what you don’t […]
Sahith Theegala had a great amateur career, won twice on the Korn Ferry Tour, but has never won on the PGA Tour, though he’s been in contention a couple times in this his rookie season. He drives to each tournament. His parents are immigrants from India. Sahith was born in Orange County, California. On Sunday […]
