Weekend Watch: St. Patrick’s Day!

Amazing Round…and He’s Only 16! — We’ve all experienced those rounds when everything just clicks. Like this 16 year old golfer Justin Pagila who shot 62– only the 3rd time ever anyone has scored 62 at Diablo Country Club. That’s pretty impressive! 

Training with MotivationSometimes all it takes is a little motivation (or motivator) to hit the gym. That seems to be the case with Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki with both of them pushing each other in the gym. What or who motivates you to train?

Selling a Green Jacket? I could not imagine selling the famed Green Jacket (if I ever won it, which at this point is unlikely), however it looks like someone else would rather take the cash. And once ownership has been proved it’s off to the auction block.

The Boys are Back at it We’re so used to watching the pros play world class golf that at times their personality takes a back seat to their golf. That’s why it’s nice to see Bubba Watson, Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan showcase their personality. Some of you may have seen a music video those 3 released a year ago called “Oh Oh Oh.” That video was so popular that they released a new one “2.Oh”.

Looking to cut some strokes from your scorecard? —It’s that time of year to start thinking about your where we can cut strokes off our handicap.  Besides a concentrated effort on fitness, the single biggest game improvement for me was when I decided to really improve my short game.  There were lots of things I did, but the one book that really opened my eyes to the short game was Dave Pelz’s Short Game Bible: Master the Finesse Swing and Lower Your Score (Dave Pelz Scoring Game) . It’s more of a text book and will take some time to read because you will want to work on things he suggests.  Get the book now and drop your scores rapidly as you implement some of the teachings.
