1. Keep Your Hands Low Limiting the height of the follow through will effectively reduce the height of your shots. The lower the hands, the lower the ballflight. Moving the ball back in your stance or choosing a stronger club and trying to swing easy are other ways to accomplish the same thing, but they’re less reliable and more difficult to execute. Instead, keep your hands low in the finish (compare the two photos at right), and the trajectory of your shots will be lower. Continue reading
People Magazine: Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn get ‘closer and closer’
First Tiger Woods reportedly loaned his private jet to an injured Lindsey Vonn [right], now comes a report from People Magazine that the two star athletes may becoming more than friends.
“Tiger and Lindsey have been friends for a while, and nothing started out romantically at all,” a source tells PEOPLE. “But they really have a lot in common and got closer and closer. He still refers to her as ‘my very good friend,’ but he’s been spending more and more time talking to her – and talking about her.”
Last month, Vonn’s reps kept mum about the rumored relationship, telling PEOPLE that her “focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time.”
But the source close to Woods tells PEOPLE that Woods, 37, and Vonn. 28, talk and text frequently.
“Tiger really does want a woman who he can have good conversations with,” he says. “He wants shared interests and outlooks. He is finding that with [Lindsey].”
I like Golf Channel’s current series of “The Big Break-Atlantis.”
You recruit a bunch of attractive young ladies, who can play golf better than 99 percent of the viewers, and put them at a phenomenal resort destination like Atlantis, Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
The producers of the show are very shrewd by giving us less golf and more social interaction between the participants such as whispered criticisms, back stabbing and disbelieving looks that make all those Housewives of New Jersey, Orange County and Atlanta shows so popular.
If you’re not familiar with “The Big Break” concept it’s a competition between aspiring pros for a shot at playing in an LPGA event and winning a bunch of great prizes. In addition to the tournament exemption, the prizes include an endorsement contract from Adams Golf, which includes an additional $10,000 in cash, a $10,000 shopping spree from Dick’s Sporting Goods, a $10,000 car-rental credit from Avis Car Rental, full exempt status and all entry fees waived for a Symetra Tour season (a developmental professional tour) and an all-expense paid return trip for two to Atlantis….

“The following article, the first in my series “Golf for Beginners”, is an introduction to learning to play for beginners and those with limited experience. Future articles will concentrate on the techniques I use in actual beginner instruction, starting with “Lesson 1″ and continue through the complete game. I once taught a lady who had never played golf – after only six lessons she shot an 80 on 18 holes. I can’t promise you’ll do as well, but hope this series will help to get you started on the right foot. Be sure to check back for the lessons, which will be provided as my schedule permits.” Continue reading
Norwegian Suzann Pettersen, who finished off the 2012 Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) in grand style, thinks that the 2013 season is going to be more important for her professional career, and she is ready for that.
Pettersen is one of the strongest LPGA contenders and boasts a stellar profile, but with the 2012 season over now, it is time to look at how the Norwegian star is going to tackle Asian rule.
From Inbee Park of South Korea to Na Yeon Choi, the LPGA lineup has diverse talent out there, and it has become somewhat challenging for the past winners and non-Asian contenders to make their mark.
This is what led Pettersen to believe that the coming season will be fraught with plenty of challenges, not just in terms of stats or wins. Sine image building and media attention have been important on the LPGA Tour, players usually look for something big all the time and many previous top-ranked players have gone behind the scene lately.

Cristie Kerr won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour victory in more than two years, and Stacy Lewis tied for fourth to wrap up the player of the year award. Kerr parred the final three holes at Guadalajara Country Club to hold off Angela Stanford and third-round leader Inbee Park by a stroke.
Coming in those last couple of holes it didn’t feel like I had won before,” Kerr said. “I kind of just squeaked in. I won by a shot. That’s all that it takes. I’ve lost plenty of tournaments by a shot, but winning by a shot feels a lot better.” Continue reading
