1. Tracking Rounds on GolfShot

    When I first started golfing I kept stats on every round I played. Over the last few years I’ve been playing less and less, and struggling more and more – to try to enjoy the walk and not focus as much on results I stopped keeping score. This year, I’ve been taking lessons and working…

  2. Lessons

    I reached a point about a month ago where I realized I just wasn’t able to make progress getting my swing back on my own. Two weeks ago I had three lessons, last week I had two lessons and this weekend I tried to take the swing changes on the course for the first time.…

  3. My Golf Swing, Early 2012

    I haven’t been able to really work on my game in about 3-4 years. My swing has been all over the place and my scoring, etc. has fallen off as you’d expect. About 5 years ago I was hitting the ball a ton, but struggling to control it – lots of snap hooks and high…

  4. Classic David Feherty Quotes

    I haven’t fact-checked these – if they’re not all true, they should be. “Fortunately, he (Rory) is 22 years old so his right wrist should be the strongest muscle in his body.” “That ball is so far left, Lassie couldn’t find it if it was wrapped in bacon.” “I am sorry Nick Faldo couldn’t be…

  5. Grass Driving Range in Denver Area in Mid-November

    I was pretty much assuming that all driving ranges in the Denver area would be hitting off mats by mid-November, but I called around and several are still hitting off grass. Hyland Hills = mats Indian Tree = mats Legacy Ridge = mats Heritage at Westmoor = grass Omni Interlocken = grass West Woods =…

  6. 36 Holes

    I played 36 today, the first 18 (riding) at Colorado National and the second 18 (walking) at Coal Creek. It’s the first time this year I’ve played 36, and I’m quite sore. I also played 9 yesterday afternoon to try to get in a rhythm. On the good side, I’m playing some of the best…

  7. Spring Golf in Colorado

    Yesterday it was 84 degrees in Denver. This morning is was still warm (in the 60′s, I think), but it looked a little ominous. The wind was kicking pretty good on the front nine, and by the time we hit the back it was cold and biting. A few raindrops turned into frozen rain and…

  8. First Birdie of 2011

    Got out for my second 9 holes of 2011 on a beautiful day today. I’m working on getting my swing more upright again after getting way too flat and laying off the club last year. No idea if I’m actually making progress or not, but I hit a few nice shots. I got my first…

  9. It’s January, I Can’t Complain

    Through a combination of work and family obligations, I’ve missed a good half dozen or more golf days this winter. Today I was able to go out and walk 9 on a beautiful sunny afternoon – the first golf I’ve played in a little over 3 months. I wasn’t expecting much, but managed to put…

  10. Jim’s Retirement

    Congratulations to Jim on his retirement. I had a great time playing in his retirement golf tournament and I’m looking forward to losing to him consistently as he spends more time on the links next year. We played the tournament at Colorado National (formerly Vista Ridge) in a standard scramble format. There was a strong…

  11. Regrip Your Putter

    I’ve been using the same putter for the last 2+ years – which is a pretty long time for me. One of the things I initially liked about the putter was the soft, tacky Winn grip that let me hold the putter very lightly and still feel tht I had good control over it. Recently…

  12. Sun Mountain Four 5 Review

    For the last three or four years, I’ve used a Nike bag that I quite liked – except for the weight. It had enough full-length dividers, and held enough stuff – overall it treated me well. The last few weeks though, I decided to carry my clubs instead of push my cart on a couple…

  13. Hybrid Golfers

    A recent study found the average golfer walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found golfers drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a Year. That means, on average, golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind of makes you proud. Almost feel like a hybrid. (thanks Andy)

  14. Ode to Golf

    In My Hand I Hold A Ball, White And Dimpled, Rather Small. Oh, How Bland It Does Appear, This Harmless Looking Little Sphere. By Its Size I Could Not Guess, The Awesome Strength It Does Possess. But Since I Fell Beneath Its Spell, I’ve Wandered Through The Fires Of Hell. My Life Has Not Been…
