Below is a link to a simple web application that I created which displays all of the key PGA Tour statistics by year. These are the statistics that I compare my own performance to, and can be an excellent guide for any competitive golfer. Please note that all the statistics here were pulled straight from the PGA Tour website, and a few of the years (2002) have slightly inaccurate reporting. Everything else should be fine! Enjoy!
If you have read anything from this site before, you probably know that I am a rather systematic and analytical golfer. I have systems and routines for every part of my game, which help to simplify and focus my attention to the factors that have the biggest impact on my scores.
In addition, there are a few posts here on the blog that cover various putting strategies and tools that I use during practice, but nothing that encompasses everything that goes into my putting process. This post is meant to encapsulate all those previous posts into a (hopefully) coherent putting system that you may be able to take bits and pieces from. All golfers have a unique way of doing things, so by no means am I putting forth a system that should be followed by everyone. I simply hope to give a basic structure for those a bit lost on the greens, which can be modified, added to, or followed verbatim.
If you have clicked on this post, you are either in great pain from attempting to read Homer Kelley’s book, or you are about to be in great pain from reading it. If you have been in the golfing industry/world for long enough, surely you have stumbled across the title “The Golfing Machine.” Several instructors across the globe have their GSEB or GSED certifications, tour players have mentioned it, and nearly every instructor (regardless of what they claim) teach at least some of the golfing machine concepts to their students.
The ambiguity associated with this book is widespread, and in order to understand the foreign dialect of English that Homer Kelley writes in, you will find yourself digging deep into internet forums, watching hundreds of YouTube videos, and most likely beating your head against a wall in agony.
In this post, I intend to clear some of the misunderstandings related to The Golfing Machine, answer some common questions, and provide additional resources to those who would like to take their education further by reading this beast on their own! By no means will this post explain the concepts within the Golfing Machine (I have partially done this in my instructional series), but will provide you with a basic understanding, and method for tackling this book on your own.
In this review, I will be taking you through the Game Golf System, and explaining how it has helped my game. I have used the system for 6 months now, and logged around 25 rounds or so. After using it for this time, I believe that I can provide a fairly comprehensive review for those considering this product. Since you’re not here to read a bunch of fluff, let’s get to the review: [Read more…]
I know it’s more fun to peek inside the bags of Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, and maybe even the up and coming Bryson Dechambeau, but what you don’t get with each of these “WITB” editions are explanations as to why certain things are kept in their bags. I thought it might be helpful to other golfers to briefly talk through my entire bag and explain some of the various things that I use at a competitive level to improve my game. So without further adieu, here is my current WITB (October, 2016): [Read more…]
