Patrick Ain’t Ali — Patrick Reed’s Confidence Needs To Be High At All Times…Ali’s Was | @asktheheadcoach

07/02/2014 When you say “I AM THE GREATEST” on national television you better believe it. Earlier this year Patrick Reed caught the attention of the golfing world after his win at the World Golf Championship (WGC). In his post round interview after the win he said “I am one of the top five players in the world.” A pretty bold statement for a 23-year old guy with just three wins on the PGA Tour. Since this brash statement, his game and his mouth have been pretty quiet until this weekend at the Congressional. He was in the lead going...

The HEAD Coach MMQB: Phil Mickelson’s Short Game…Eliminate the Pacifier!

06/09/2014 Did you see the shot? Phil Mickelson pulled off another short game special that I am sure even other PGA Pros marvel at. At the Fedex St. Jude Classic, Phil hit a sprinkler head on his tee shot at the fourth on Thursday leaving him a nasty shot in thick rough behind the hole. The resulting shot he hit from there was absolutely spectacular and you can watch it in the video below, it’s definitely worth it. This is vintage for Phil Mickelson’s short game and he’s not new to this, either… My objective today is not to increase...
