Before you vote, here is why I’m asking.R&A Chief Martin Slumbers said in a new interview with the MailOnline that his organization is as focused as ever on implementing some sort of equipment rules changes.

SBJ’s John Ourand explains the new partnership between CBS and SRX, a NASCAR disrupter led by hall of famers Tony Stewart and Ray Evenham.

I don’t want, in any way, to diminish Collin Morikawa’s exciting win in the Workday Charity Open. It’s pretty thrilling for golf to have a young star who has so much upside delivering such consistency and also showing that playing four years in college, the Walker Cup and, in general, the old fashioned way to […]

Look, don’t bother to send me your hate mail, all for pointing out that the President is lying about the frequency of his golf habit and just consider how this can’t be a good look for the sport. 266 (at least) to 98 days on the links, for those who like numbers.As golfers, I think […]
Rex Hoggard reports on what was inevitable given the COVID-19 situation and pro golf showing it’s functional without spectators.

It’s difficult for golfers to make improvements in their games if they don’t know where to look. Unfortunately, when most players finish their rounds, a lot of that critical information is discarded.

If every golfer had a magic genie who could grant them one wish, most of them would ask, “please make me more consistent!” This is one of the most common requests amongst anyone who plays the game.

Years ago, I read a book called The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less. It warned how excessive choices in society (even as simple as buying a pair of jeans) wasn’t making us happier, but causing more stress and anxiety because of unrealistic expectations and something referred to as “decision-making paralysis.” At the time […]
