2011 Local South Dakota Golf Season In Review

2011 enjoyed watching South Dakota golfers see success, across all demographics. College programs in South Dakota measured themselves with the best as two teams made trips to their National tournaments.

The former Demon Deacon finally hit his stride in 2011, finishing the season with a scoring average of 69.25 and tallying 12 top-10 finishes.

Webb’s season could have been better too. In New Orleans, he lost a...

College Golfer Diaries: Winter Golf Game Hibernation Hibernation is not the best way to approach a golf-less winter – despite the title’s inclination.

Golf In the Olympics? Yeah, It’s About Time | #Olympicgolf #rio

12/15/2011 Rio de Golf Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, host of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, will for the first time in over a century include golf. Avid golf fans are thrilled with the addition, and even passive fans undoubtedly will enjoy the competition – a little over 4 years away. Naysayers of golf’s addition claimed that golf is only an ‘elitist’ sport and it wouldn’t translate well to the Olympic level of athletics. Nonetheless, golf was passed with a 63-27 vote (not overwhelming when compared to rugby’s induction which garnered an 81-8 vote in 2009). Now golf enthusiasts will...

PGA Tour Q-School, Should Stand For Queasy School

Despite the title, there is nothing ‘easy’ about PGA Tour Qualifying School. In fact, it’s debilitating. Shaky knees, unsettled stomachs and pure nerves are on showcase at Q-School. Players will have suffered through difficulty breathing, gut aches and troubling walking after a week of Q-School golf. University of Sioux Falls assistant golf coach and South Dakota native Ryan Jansa knows the pressure of Q-School having competed in it before, and he offered one word to describe the pressure – crippling. Q-School offers the most frustrating, agonizing and downright brutal pressure in all of golf. This type of pressure isn’t...

Club Fitting- Hot Stix Golf

Club fitting- it’s at the forefront of golf technology today. It is more prevalent now than it has been at any point in the history of golf. The use of computers, simulators and swing monitors has changed the way golfers view the equipment they put in their bags. Or, should I say, should change the ways golfers look at their equipment they put in their bags. Custom built equipment is at the paramount of the golf club industry. Simply because pros like Dustin Johnson hits his commercialized ‘Burner 2.0’ 3-iron 254 yards or Bubba Watson hits a shot he calls...
