Hey, golfers -- hope all is well!
With the OPEN Championship right around the corner, I’d like to spend some time sharing how to play your best golf in dry, windy conditions.
Let's start at the tee box with a roaring wind rushing into your face. Hint: the driver is not always the play! There. I said it. Many club companies are developing driving irons, and strong lofted driving metals, to help increase ball speeds and decrease spin and loft.

Hey guys, hope all is well, and you’ve been out on the course working on your game!
I recently spent some time looking at Brooks Koepka and what it took for him to win the U.S. Open. Everyone is hitting it farther, straighter, and more consistent yet; there is only one winner eachweek on the PGA and LPGA Tours. The players who are winning at the professional and amateur levels have a few things in common, one of them being the fact that they make putts -- clutch putts.
Koepka was coming down the stretch make a 45ft plus putt to save par and made many 6-10ft putts to either save par or avoid a double bogey. Let's take a look at a great putting drill to solidify your stroke, and make more putts!

Spring has sprung ... at least it seems to have finally arrived here in the mitten. As we enter the official "golf season" I thought I'd throw out some of the tips I use to drop my scores on the greens.
To this, I say: "why not?"
For many, seasonal climates and unpredictable weather patterns can create a challenge for training your swing outdoors. Fortunately, indoor golf simulators offer an opportunity to keep your game on point, even when the weather is less than cooperative.
So how do you make the most out of your "simulation experience?" Easy: focus on one data point at a time -- quality not quantity
One common mistake golfers make when playing indoor golf is to focus on all the data thrown at them after each shot. While it is good to have an understanding of each data point and its effect on your shot, it can also be quite overwhelming. When training, I leverage the focusing on a target number and creating an upper and lower boundary, a.k.a. "the green zone."
The result? A more focused training experience on my OptiShot.
Once I am consistently hitting shots in the green zone, I move to my next data point, keeping the previous "zone" in mind. This makes it easier to improve your experience and find "quick wins" for your performance.
Golf is a game of confidence, it's crucial to build that up on every shot. When hitting on a simulator, you have the ability (and blessing) of hitting everything off the same lie. The key is to use this to your advantage. By focusing on hitting the same shot, off the same lie, the opportunity to build your confidence grows for that same shot on the course.
The consistency of a good golf mat will allow your body to relax and be more focused to hit the tough shots you need to during your training time.
Call it baby steps, or training tips, ultimately the goal of becoming confident in any shot is just a few more swings away.
