SHOULD YOU LAYUP OR NOT?

Early spring post by Brad Turner of Keiser University discusses course strategy in the link provided below. He discusses the adage of “hitting to your favorite distance” during your rounds to score better. Peeling back the information becoming available from the PGA tour about course strategy finds that there may be a different approach to scoring during your rounds. If you are trying to improve your game it would be a good idea to read his article on the new approach to playing.

My personal opinion on this is to stay with conventional wisdom and stay in the short grass and use advanced course management. There are definitely places where that adage is not applicable. I would think that with the overwhelming amount of time which has been expended since the beginning of golf, it may be worth the consideration to follow the comments in the article. I think this would be most beneficial with the player who has reached a plateau in this game (similar to me, index 10.2) and is searching for further improvement of his game based on misses.

Practice and focusing in on the various topics and points within the article would be very helpful and should give any aspiring player a good lattice work of points for improvement. Modeling the game plan outlined has a good structure for developing your course management skills and would give you a benchmark for feedback on your game improvement.

As a matter of recommendation to anyone who loves golf and needs to get some expert knowledge on the game with top of the line instruction should consider contacting the people at Keiser University about the College of golf courses. There is great opportunity to play and apply your knowledge as well as display your skills. As a former student I would highly recommend the time and effort for this institution.

Good Luck with your game in support of the the Greatest Game Ever.

 

HOW ARE YOU TRACKING YOUR HANDICAP?

There has been a significant number of questions about handicapping and the different systems and sources. Here in the USA, there is a system promoted by the USGA called the GHIN system. I have been around golf operations for some time and believe this is the most recognized system currently in use. I know that licensing by USGA is available to country clubs and golf courses to maintain their memberships stats. But there are a great number of golfers who are not members of those organized facilities and on occasion are Guests at membership events. Many have GHIN numbers as they come from other facilities that conscribe to the GHIN system. Of these people without GHIN numbers and who use other systems are with some skepticism and scrutinized by the organizing committees totry and keep their events fair. This is a good effort but with the advent of a new tournament system, Golf Genius in 2019 to replace the older TTP system, it has become easier to setup with GHIN as the common handicap system. This is not to say that other systems are bad, just that they are questioned heavily. There is why I would recommend every golfer getting a GHIN number that is now also using the World Handicap System. The use of Golf Genius has been such and great help to local tournament operations.

The aid of emphasis is a alignment aid for putting to help your stroke. I, like Dustin have putting problems, but the aids shown have helped him improve and are helping me improve.

Experience has shown me that a Putting Mirror has been a good purchase. There are multiple items out there on the market to chose from so you can choose what is best. I suggest that you visit the website GolfTrainingAids.com which is run and recommended by a friend, Dr. Gary Wiren, and his son. You can find the link at the top of CleekGeekGolf.com home page to reach the this website.

HOW DOES YOU DRIVING DISTANCE COMPARE?

Comparative golf information is always being presented which is got some very interesting outcomes. Thanks to the gentlemen from GoflWRX I recently found an article which has some very interesting results. I can only assume that the information is gleaned from a data base which is actually based on fact. My only question is the distribution of the subject golfers based on index. I know for sure, by past experience, that there are golfer across the index range that use the quoted equipment. I would hope that a good statistical representation has been used to back up the information.

If you want to delve deeper into the facts and details of the study and information click on the following link:

This is one of the better articles but I am outside the information listed. Not having used the equipment quoted but watching my playing stats my golfing and physical age just don’t match.
