The Olympic Golf Course in Rio de Janiero in Trouble

12/09/2016 Seemingly against all odds, Rio de Janeiro pulled off a fairly successful Summer Olympic Games this past August. Golf enjoyed a return to the Olympic spotlight after a 112-year absence and although many of the top players stayed away, those who did compete in Rio did so at a very high level. Five of the six medal winners were major champions. The players raved about the experience and it looked good on TV. More importantly, having golf in the Olympics would help inspire a new generation of players in Brazil and all over South America. Well, it’s now...

The Golf Swing Shirt: Has The Orange, Straight-Jacket for Golf

12/04/2016 Pro golfers can be very particular about the clothes they wear on the course. Tiger, of course, always wore red on Sunday because his Mom told him red was his ‘power’ color, and you always have to listen to your mom. Gary Player dressed in all black like Johnny Cash because his father said he needed a trademark to stand out from the other players on tour. Jack Nicklaus wore a yellow shirt during the final round of the 1986 Masters because he knew yellow would look very nice with a green jacket. Now, would Tiger have won...

Increase Distance on the Golf Course With this 1-Minute Tip

11/30/2016 Do you remember during the late 90s when Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds & Sammy Sosa were crushing home runs at a record pace? (Never mind the doping allegations). Nike came up with an ad campaign with the tagline, “Chicks dig the long ball.” What’s true for baseball in this case, is also true for golf. Power rules the game. Fans aren’t often seen crowding around 10-deep on the course or the practice range to watch Zach Johnson or Jim Furyk hit nice, controlled 7-irons. They want to see Bubba Watson, J.B. Holmes and Rory McIlroy crush 350-yard drives right...

Carnoustie Apparel: They Understand Fashion

11/15/2016 All the Halloween candy has been put away (or eaten), the leaves are spectacular shades of red, orange & yellow, the days are shorter and there is a definite chill in the air. It can only mean one thing. It’s Christmas time. The malls are certainly ready, but are you? I’m guessing not.

The Swing Caddie 2: An Affordable, Accurate Launch Monitor

11/13/2016 We all know the importance of having a caddy with you during a round. Not only do they carry your bag for several hours on a steamy, summer day but they also provide (hopefully) proper advice on club selection, reading greens, strategy on how to play a hole and just offer a friendly companion during your round. Is there any doubt the importance Steve Williams played in helping Tiger win all those majors (and Adam Scott too for that matter)? Or Bones Mackay being on the bag for Phil Mickelson? A good caddy can save you several strokes...

And today, we’re going to talk ball position at address—with all clubs....

Callaway Golf with “Golf Lives”: A Documentary with Scarface

10/14/2016 The worlds of music and sports seem to blend seamlessly at times. Every NFL or NBA game features blaring music during pre-game and timeouts. The Super Bowl halftime show seems to draw as much attention as the game itself (and is usually more entertaining) and Niall Horan of One Direction was spotted cheering on Team Europe at the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine. Why is this? Perhaps Lil Wayne said it best when he said, “athletes wanna be rappers, rappers wanna be athletes.” He’s makes a good point. Former NBA great Shaquille O’Neal has put out a rap album...
