Natalie Gulbis and Paula Creamer appear to be having fun at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia gala, and they look good doing so. Gulbis posted a few photos on Twitter of her and Paula Wednesday night wearing gorgeous, long, flowing Malaysian gowns designed by Tom Abang Saufi. Here’s hoping they take that beauty, style and grace from the gala to the fairways this week. Gulbis is looking for her second LPGA win and Creamer is seeking her first victory since the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open.
Gulbis is one heck of a golfer. She may have disappeared from the public eye a bit, but I expect a big year from her in 2013. If not, her Twitter account might end up being the best thing about her…

Rather, I took an entirely unbiased technique. I wanted to construct an easy golf swing that was based upon basics of golf swing mechanics and biomechanics.
To do that, I had to specify a set of requirements for each motion and then identify the simplest and most effective method to satisfy those requirements.
For instance, something as simple as position width had a set of demands. Exactly what are the demands of stance width in this simple golf swing? Continue reading

I was just minding my business last night, enjoying a Sunday evening on Twitter when an email popped into the inbox. It was from some guy named Ashley Woolfe and he was offering up a photo of the “World’s Hottest Golfer,” UK native Sophie Horn. “I have a picture of The World’s Sexiest Golfer, Sophie Horn, caught changing in the car park at The Open at Lytham. Please email me and I will send it to you,” Woolfe wrote.
And he did send the photo.
But it was just a photo of a hot chick with her shirt off in a car, wearing her famous belt and a white bra.
That’s it. Just a photo. Continue reading

As a child I took pleasure in playing in the sand, but out on the golf course it’s a different story. I try to prevent it as much as I can. So, exactly what do you do when you discover yourself in over your ankles in the sand?
First, remember that you are not allowed to ground your golf club or let it touch the sand prior to striking your shot. In order to strike a great bunker shot you should get your feet into the sand as firmly as possible. Wiggle you feet in the sand to help establish a firm base. Continue reading
