August 3, 2005 17:43 - Looking for a golf cart?

A golf cart can take the strain and ease the pain, especially as we advance in years.
I used to play on avery hilly course some years ago,and boy was I tired when I finished,

My wife seeing I was suffering bought me an electric trolley for my birthday that was around
14 /15 years ago, sadly it gave up last year.

Since then I have been looking for a replacement and was staggered at the prices,
however last month I found a supplier who had some special and I do mean special offers on
and bought one.

I am delighted with it, it is easily assembled comes with guarantees on parts and labour.

Playing the Middle Irons

The straighter the face of the club, the more difficult it is to
play. Even though this is true, it is not true to the extent most
people think. In more specific language, what I'm trying to get
across is this: granted that it is easier for the average golfer
to hit a good shot with his eight-iron than it is with his
four-iron, he will obtain much better results than he usually
does with the middle irons if he goes about playing them right.

You can play the short irons with a restricted swing and just hit
down on the ball, and sometimes get away with it. That won't work
in the middle irons—the lowest point of the arc, of the swing is
not so far in advance of the ball as on the shorter irons. You
must execute a golf swing. On the middle irons you don't have to
hit the ball with a lot of force to get it out the distance you
want. The club will do it for you if you perform a reasonably
good swing. The backswing should be almost as full as the
backswing on the long irons and the woods. This necessarily means
taking a good unrestricted body turn.

As compared with the short irons, the longer turn you make in
playing the middle irons provides more clubhead speed for you.
There's more acceleration of the hands through the ball. There's
no need to try to speed up your tempo. As a matter of fact, a
golfer is wise if he tries to keep the same tempo on all his
shots and realizes that he derives his distance not from speeding
up his swing but from the built-in acceleration that the longer
turn generates.

August 8, 2005 11:45 - The finalists have been announced in the Great Shot competition

August 9, 2005 17:02 - Improving Your Golf Balance

The need for balance for golf just sounds so simple and easy. As a golfer, you know that maintaining proper golf balance is a key to a good golf game. And it's more than just having the correct stance.

Optimum golf balance depends on three aspects: your visual perception, the signals from the inner ear, and signals from your muscles and joints. Sometimes these aspects get out of sync, causing a balance disorder. Most of which can be easily fixed with some simple ideas.

How To Play The Par 3's

It pays to plan carefully for playing par 3 holes. Most courses
have four par 3's which the average golfer can reach with tee
shots. Threes on these holes can do a lot for your score and
give you a pshchological lift. So make the most of the

Forget your ego. Take as much club as you will neeed to carry
the ball to the pin. A check at one event showed 90 percent of
tee shots stopping short of the hole; 40 percent short of the
green. So consider taking a longer club than you might expect to

Consider distance to the pin, not green. It can vary one or two
clubs, depending on pin placement and posistion of the tee
markers. Remember: Distance on card is from middle of tee to
middle of ghe green. So check pin placement and the tee markers
before selecting the club.

Consider also the wind. Tossing some grass on the tee is not
enough. The wind may be blosing differently at the gree, where
its effect is greatest. So check the flag and tops of trees near
the green.

Another distance factor is green elevation. If it's elevated,
better add 10 yards; lower, deduct 10.

Knowing you have the correct club will increase confidence, help
you make a soooth swing. You don't want to force the swing. Tha
twould affect your rhythm and swing arc. This should be a
control shot.

Study the green carefully to plan where you want to aim. Since
there's small margin for error on a par 3, play for the safe
part. You'll still be putting for a birdie. Adjust air to allow
for crosswind.

Always use a tee, but keep the ball close to the turf so you can
take divot and get backspin with an iron.

Swing well within yourself.

Until next week...good golfing!

August 13, 2005 18:01 - Heres a great golf tip for you

Hit That Cloud!

My experience, as a now fairly good golfer, has brought home to
me that regardless of some minor things, I may or may not be
doing on a given round, my game will be fundamentally sound if I
stay under the shot.

To explain this a bit: there is always a tendency when you are
aiming for a pin situated on the same level with yourself, to try
and line the ball on a low, bullet-like flight for the target.
When you have this conception in your mind of the shot you're
going to play, you're likely to over accelerate the whole action
at contact and to hammer the ball so that it slides to the right,
ducks a little to the left—or, at any rate, does something

When I find I'm doing this—and, I hope, sometimes before an error
informs me—I try to remind myself that a shot that flies in a
high trajectory seldom goes crooked. Instead of setting my eyes
on the pin, I raise them and pick out some higher object behind
the pin as my target—the top of a tree, a spot on a slope, or
even a cloud. Then, by swinging in such a way that my shot will
soar toward that object, I will move into the ball with an action
that encourages staying under the shot. I am convinced that
there's tremendous value in keeping this image, this precept,
always in the forefront of my mind

Effective Jan. 1, 2006, new rules will apply to determine where on the
Official World Golf Ranking scale a player belongs. Points for winners
on the Asian Tour and the Nationwide tour in the United States will
increase from three to seven, and winners on the Challenge Tour will
earn six, not three points. The winner of the major Nationwide event,
the Nationwide Tour Championship, will get 10 points. With another
change, calculated to level the playing field, points awarded to
players in events with fewer than 30 qualified players will be prorated
so as not to afford advantage or disadvantage to players trying to
qualify for major tournaments.

His name is Joel Comm and it wasn't so long ago he was
making only $30 a day with Google's Adsense program.

Then one day it hit him over the head like a '2 by 4'
and Joel began testing other ways to increase his Adsense earnings...

commissions shoot up to the sky...

This is significant and here's why...

odds at winning with Google Adsense are more in your
favor than ever before.

delivering his checks!

He climbed up to making $18,343 this past December 2004

end in sight... Joel's case study shows how it didn't take
long once he knew how to tweak his Adsense pages.

I plan on reading it again in case I blinked and missed
something important because it's filled with so many gold nuggets...

Pitching Out of Sand

A ball can be hit cleanly from a trap when the sand is wet or very firm. You
should not try it when the sand is dry and fluffy. This type of shot calls for
an eight or nine iron, never a wedge. If the pin is back quite a way, use your
eight-iron so the ball will run.

Take an open stance with your weight just a little toward the left side,. Hold
your hands a little forward, too, and play the ball off your left heel. At the
address, you should strive for a relaxed feeling in your forearms, especially the
right one, since this is where most tension develops. On the backswing, break
your wrists less than when exploding from a trap. Hit the ball first-not the
sand-with both your forearms and your wrists. The shot is played, really, in
practically the same way as a chip shot off the fairway, even to the extent of
taking a slight divot. As a matter of fact, a good mental approach is to pretend
that there is grass under you.

By Mac Stephenson

Match Club Selection to Lie

Many of us are guilty of deciding on what shot to play before we even get to our
ball, especially on our home course where we know every blade of grass. This can
become a bad habit.

In many respects, golf is like poker--you have to play the percentages on every
shot. Don’t try and take more than the golf gods are willing to give you. Examine
your lies ever so closely--even in the fairway--before you decide on the shot you
want to play.

When you hit your drive in the fairway on a long par four or a par five, don’t
automatically pull your 3-wood out of your bag for the second shot. Check your
lie. If it’s a good one, go ahead and hit whatever club you want. But if it’s a
tight lie and you think you might have trouble making good contact with a 3-wood,
go to a more-lofted club like a 5-wood. The distance you lose won’t be that
important and a missed shot with a 3-wood could prove costly.

August 23, 2005 18:58 - Balance and your Golf

Balance and Tempo, Michael Lamanna

All great players have the ability to swing every club at a
consistent tempo and with great balance. Rhythm and balance are
linked. Some players, like Tom Watson, exhibit faster tempos.
Some, like Ernie Els, exhibit a slower tempo. Yet all remain
balanced. The key to consistency is to maintain your balance
and use a smooth rhythm.

If you rush your swing you will loose your balance and the end
result is inconsistent contact and poor ball flight. Outstanding
ball strikers are rarely off balance at impact and their rhythm is
the "glue" that bonds their positions and movements. Often their
swings seem effortless and they, as Julius Boros described it,
"swing easy and hit hard." Great rhythm allows you to properly
sequence your body motion and arrive at impact in a position of
leverage and power.

Ten-time PGA TOUR driving accuracy champion Calvin Peete says the
three keys to straight driving are "Balance, Balance and Balance."

If you want to be a more consistent ball striker, you must
understand how the body should be balanced in four key positions.

Although your spine is tilted away from the target at address, you
should have your weight evenly balanced between your right and your
left foot with your middle and long irons. Also, you should feel
your weight evenly balanced between your heels and your toes,
roughly on the balls of the feet.

Top of the Backswing
As you pivot to the top of the back swing, your weight moves into
the inside of the back foot. You should feel approximately
75-percent of your weight on the back foot and 25-percent on the
front foot. The weight must never move to the outside of the back

By the time you arrive at impact, approximately 70- to 75-percent
of your weight should be shifted onto the front foot. Your head
must be behind the ball and your hips must shift forward
approximately 4 inches past their starting position. This increases
the spine tilt by at least double.

The Finish
At the completion of the follow through, you should have the
majority of your weight - about 90-percent of it - on the outside
of the front foot.
