  3. You can't hit a hook without a dead shut club face. The question is why. Good players tend to miss left because they've played enough to have fixed the shot to the right, which is generally how right handed players miss when they start. They do this through a variety of ways that end up piling on each other and over correcting to cause the hook. One thing that's simple but often overlooked is letting go of the club with the last few fingers on the left hand. Stick a tee barely in between your left palm and the club and take a few swings without it falling out. Easy to try, seen it work many
  4. Ben Hogan taught hands, arms, shoulders, hips is the proper sequence in the backswing with the reverse being true for the downswing - hips, shoulders, arms, hands.
  5. Golf is like any other job. You can make a great living if you work hard and play it smart. A lot of people talk about the low wages when you start, which is true as far as salaries are concerned, probably somewhere 25-30K. But when you factor in benefits, lesson income, club repair, outing bonuses, and any money you can earn playing, you're generally starting closer to 35 or 40k. I have friends who are second year assistants out of college and make over 45k per year when everything is considered. What you want to consider is that the hours are long, you don't get summer vacations, and you wor
  6. It's good to have options. I think you'll have a better idea after visiting the schools, seeing the campus', the facilities, the coach, and hopefully meeting some of the other players. Think about what you want academically as well, if the school offers the degree you're interested in. To play college golf for four years only to graduate with a degree in something your not interested in is a huge waste of time, money, and effort. Also, when considering where to play college golf, climate is something to take into consideration. Remember, you're at school mid august - early may. Which one
  7. Don't forget semiahmoo and loomis trail up north, beautiful tracks. Highlands in Wenatchee is a great place too. Some of the best summer golf is in the PAC NW. Enjoy.
  8. Regardless of the effectiveness or skill level of a teacher, improvement comes from dedication and work. I always compare golf lessons to having a personal trainer. If you see a trainer once a week, and between sessions never see the inside of a gym, or lift a weight, is it the fault of the trainer or their lack of skill that determined your success, or lack there of? Golf students are just about as impatient as those who want to lose weight, but the golf swing can't be developed in an hour. The most successful lessons leave you with a change you understand, believe will help you improve, and

  11. i do not believe it was, i bought it off this site some years back and haven't done any alterations to it since, but before i had it i do not know.
  12. a good friend of mine caddied for him at the sectionals at woodmont cc in maryland, shot -8 64 in a flawless first round, definitely still has game.

  15. the guy has been a stand up umpire for over two decades, unfortunate one mistake at a bad time turns everyone in the world against him. I mean he took ownership, and the pitcher didn't seem to have any hard feelings, everyone in the world will give him credit for the perfect game, in fact it will probably go down as one of the most memorable in history.
  16. if you have enrolled in a PGM program you can also take the PAT. I took mine the summer before my first semester in the PGM program at Methodist.
  17. coastal is awful and has had their accreditation threatened in recent years. Its a joke of a program and a waste of your time. As for PGM in general, be sure that a career in golf is what you want, many many professionals will tell you they wish they would have done something else, so make sure you are able to get some sort of business degree along with PGM.

  20. I'm not sure that there is a way to check this, if they are playing straight up i would assume two players would have an advantage over one, just because you get to see a shot before you hit yours, which is especially important on the putting green. A 13 handicap player will most likely shoot low to mid 80's, i think two 20's could top that. m
  21. he's never been a model of mental strength or consistency, i know that he worked a long time on trying to play a fade and eliminating the left side of the golf course, perhaps on days like this those hooks creep back to the surface and then of course frustration sets in. Golf is a crazy game. m
  22. Federer makes history today at FrenchFederer took full advantage of a French Open final minus Nadal, becoming the sixth player to win the career grand slam and tie Pete Sampras with 14 career majors. Bet Tiger got a text!
  23. "Dream Golf: The Making of Bandon Dunes" by Stephen Goodwin is an awesome book if you're into course design. "Bud, Sweat, and Tee's" which is the story of Rich Beem is really good as well.
  24. PGM is a better investment. You get help with all your books, take specific classes related to the industry, get to do 4 internships at some really nice facilities, and get a degree. A degree is important in todays environment, it will only help you. Just be careful when researching schools on what degree is offered with the PGM program, i belive ASU is Agribusiness, Clemson is Liesure Studies, Ferris is Business, and Methodist is Business/Marketing/Accounting. In addition, you will play plenty of golf being a PGM student, once you get your PGA affiliation card you can play most courses for
  25. i chew everywhere, and the golf course is no exception. it does seem to be a good fit. mike
