Western Canada’s province of Alberta features both dramatic mountain ranges and expansive prairies.

Not many people outside of Michigan realize that Lansing is the state capital. Lansing is centrally located in the middle of the mitten, but it’s only one-fifth the size of Detroit and smaller than Grand Rapids as well. It might not be the golf capital of Michigan, but for a city its size (roughly 115,000 residents), […]
Milwaukee is a blue collar town, and proud of it. That Midwestern ethos of work hard, play hard (especially in summer) helps Wisconsinites survive the long winters without golf.

El Tucan, short-changed a year ago, has landed Rob Oppenheim’s bag for the rain-delayed Mayacoma PGA Tour event. Round one play will commence Friday.

The day many always thought would come arrived in Boca Raton. Maybe there have been previous examples, but it’s hard not to read about Boca’s kibosh on architects Tom Fazio II and Nick Price over the $13 million budgeted for their creation of 18 holes and a par 3 course. Despite winning the project bid […]
It’s hard to take any list seriously that includes David Pillsbury—in the No. 2 spot no less—but Golf Inc. has published their annual compilation of golf’s most powerful people. At least, powerful in terms of the golf development world, which would explain how Tiger Woods lands 7th and PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan slips to […]
He had a steady presence in Colin Swatton on the bag who remains his swing instructor, and while there have been more catastrophic caddie firings in golf, Jason Day’s replacement effort has fueled a decline in the former World No. 1’s game. While Day did win twice in 2018, he has since struggled while having […]

The rush to turn pro continues to be an ongoing theme for men’s and women’s college golf—followed by the inevitable coach quotes saying how happy they are for the players. With four of five 2019 LPGA Q-Series participants deciding to turn pro instead of finishing the 2019-20 season—and Andrea Lee undecided—the situation stinks for women’s […]
Matt Kuchar spoke to the Mayakoba Classic media gathered and as Adam Schupak reports for Golfweek, says last year’s win and ensuing controversy over caddie pay was hard on him. But Kuchar said his stubbornness in refusing to pay his fill-in caddie a reasonable chunk from the $1.3 million winner’s check provided a teaching moment […]

Before I started Practical Golf in 2015, I didn’t know much about golf clubs and how they worked.
