From the talking heads on TV to the touring pros themselves, swing speed is all the rage. Bryson DeChambeau is the current focus of the discussion, although he’s just doing his thing in order to win more tournaments. I don’t think too many others will take the time to put on 40 pounds of muscle […]
Lots to cover today. My golf swing. Totally in the tank. I am lost in the golf wilderness. And that’s just at the range! Fifth back surgery for Tiger. Pain started again at the Father-Son/Daughter tourney. He may still play in the Masters, from what his friend Notah Begay says. Angel Cabrerra arrested in Brazil. […]
As I continue to experiment with the mechanics of the golf swing, I begin to realize more and more the importance of completing the backswing. There’s no cookie cutter formula for this, but there are some general guidelines. In addition to a one piece takeaway, which I’ve written about before, the hands and the club […]
This may be the deepest PGA tour field I’ve seen in years. There’s a lot of talent out there, with just a putt or two separating those who win from the others. Patrick Cantley. Great college player. Has been solid on pro tour. I’ve seen better putters, but otherwise, I can find no flaws in […]

When you hear the name of golf pro Harry Higgs, your first reaction is probably Harry Higwhoda, reminiscent of Danny Kaye’s Griwhoda declaration in a movie of yesteryear (yes, I’m so old I remember well my pet dinosaur Rex!). But Harry surprisingly has quite a following, and he’s ranked eighth in the race to the FedEx Cup. His story is one worth taking a closer look at.
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. The guy goes after the ball like no one I’ve ever seen. Nearing impact, Trevino […]
One of my teachers, Jim Knego, the eminent pro at Bennett Valley in Santa Rosa CA, took a look at my swing once and noticed I was pulling everything left. His prescription was to hold off the club face at impact. And once I got the hang of it, it worked. Of course, in the […]
An unusual Players tournament, battling a virus and a tough course.
