In trying to help Jordan Spieth fix his game, former World Number One and now Golf Channel commentator David Duval came up with what he calls “reactionary golf.” In my thinking, it’s quite wise, and may have two, or possibly even more, meanings.
The ANA Tournament, formerly the Dinah Shore, is a much-coveted major on the LPGA Tour. Twenty-nine year old Mirim Lee from South Korea was an afterthought as the final round commenced with Nellie Korda, Lexi Thompson, and Brooke Henderson battling back and forth for the lead. But MIrim won her first major by chipping the ball in the cup three times in that round…
My 75th is coming up end of October. I don’t ask for much. Drives on the fairway, 230, consistent, bullet trajectory, on the screws. Pick the right approach club. Solid strike. On the green. Birdie chance. Good chips. No yips.
I don’t know about you, but the simple chip right off the green can drive me nuts at times. It’s either a great effort for a tap in par or a flub that challenges my commitment to mindful golf.
I’ve been studying the swing of Lee Buck Trevino lately. And there are several aspects that particularly strike me, and lead me to think we moderns have much to learn from from this six-time major and 29-time PGA victory winner.

My Dad was a carpenter, by trade–learned it from his father–and one of his favorite sayings was “the right tool for the right job.” When you need a screwdriver, don’t use a damn butter knife! I have since pleased and amazed my wife for getting all sorts of things fixed around the house with the […]
I enjoy time on the range as it allows honing your skills without the pressure of performance that playing presents. The range provides a significant level of privacy that we often don’t get in everyday life. You’re usually alone in your own hitting station, absorbed in your swing, your body’s reactions, how you’re doing, and […]
OK, so the great quarterback was 13 over par after six at The Match on Sunday…in front of half the world watching safely on TV…with trash-talker supreme Charles Barkley hounding him every inch of the way. Brady couldn’t find a fairway or green with a hand wedge. But we’ve all been there, right? We’ve all […]
I think we’d all agree that golf is a tough game. Every shot requires precision, concentration, determination, skill, and, curiously, attachment and non attachment to the results. It takes a whole lot of practice and preparation to play this game as it was meant to be played. Or without those, the game requires a third […]
