Additional statistics for golfer to ponder. Friends at MyGolfSpy.com had published the supplement to 2016 – Overall Golf Performance by Handicap on May 3rd about our great golf game. In review there are may ways you can determine the final outcome. However should we take the information at face value we can see that the better players appear to play where there are more courses.

2016 Report – Overall Golf Performance by State

In review of the comments there are surely ways to change the justification of the reasons that your area is not #1 on the list (or any higher placement). Since there are those that question the statistics origin and validity, I would also content that persons are out there that have questions several official sites. My justification for this is the proposition by the USGA relative to golfers submitting unattested rounds for consideration on their handicap.

I fall on the side that submission of a round for consideration of handicap should only be a valid round under the rules. I personally don’t submit rounds for my handicap in which I have not played every shot ‘by the rules (IMO)’ on a valid course. Would look forward to comments.

Roll Players: New Golf Balls for 2016

Thanks to Golf Magazine and author Rob Sauerhaft, at the link below, you will find a good examination of the newest golf balls models available on the market for 2016 which could improve your game. In my estimation each player should take the time to review new editions of their current balls and any reasonably close ball in the same category. That is to say that, 1) slow swingers should look at most of the new low compression balls which offer greater distance; 2) Better players should look at the premium balls for these categories and 3) don’t forget the possibility of fashion color choices for each of the types of balls.

Hogan’s FW15 HI Irons – Game Changer

You have seen it here before. Now it is confirmed that Hogan Golf’s newest iron is trying to change the game again.

My friends at MySpyGolf recently published review of these new irons by Terry Koehler from Hogan Golf which you can read below. This article would be of great interest to the players who are interested in maintaining the ‘traditional iron’ look to their complete set but getting the performance of that current utility club.


With the opportunity to hit these irons early in the introduction process was very exciting and I have been awaiting the chance to put at least one in my bag. Better players need to take a look at these along with the other great irons in the class to determine if it is best for you.

Great Lessons learned during 2016 Masters

Unfortunately I didn’t get to see much of the 2016 Masters and all the related events therein due to work. However, I would like to record my thoughts (even at this late time) on what I have heard and seen in replay. Before beginning any comments on the events of the day, I do want to congratulate Danny Willet on his win and I would also like to thank everyone who participated for making this year Masters another great event.

In my opinion, more comments will be written about Jordan’s breakdown that Danny’s win. Furthermore, I believe that analysis of Jordan’s play early on the back nine will be as much help to me as much as how he finished. I will never compete at Jordan’s level but I can still learn so that some day I hopefully won’t encounter a similar fate.

Every parent is interested in wondering how they should handle their children when it comes to learning skills and developing those young minds. Parents and children should take the advise of our most prominent local Texas golf hero, Jordan Spieth.

The book title is “Jordan Spieth: Golf Prodigy to Golf Phenomenon” and has just been recently published Rebel Reads.

I just finished this book on him (i.e. a very short biography but what else would you expect at this time in his life) and I am really interested in watching the details develop.

We all want to know how hard to push our children and when. The great part of the book is how he and his family answered these questions. Also answered and well documented in book on Jordan’s life are some good advise on handling off-course life.  I would encourage everyone to read the book available from Amazon. (I got mine for Kindle).

Honesty and Intergrity most of the world has forgotten…

Congratulations Mateo. It is important for everyone in golf to understand not only the rules but the intent of the rules and how it affects our life. Here is the latest example of lessons learned and righteous decisions made to honor the game of golf and those they play the game.

Trophy returned upon scorecard mistake discovery

This level of honesty has been lost in most of the worldly endeavors as seen daily in the news. However, it has always been said that the children shall lead us in seeing the right things when given a good basis for making good decisions.
