June 11th, 2011

Well, folks, I’ve moved into my new place that has a “yard” finally.  It’s a small yard but one of the first things I did was to build my own DIY backyard putting green. I used to work at the golf course so I know a little bit about growing grass but this DIY putting […]

You Must Put That Club Down When You Practice!

May 5th, 2011

One of the mistakes golfers make when they are on the range is that they don’t “align” themselves correctly and get into a bad habit of aligning themselves 20 yards right or left of the target. Believe me, I’ve played golf over 20+ years and it always comes back to that, alignment. If you can’t […]
