Posture Tips

As golfers we know the importance of good posture. I would go as far as to define your posture as the first part or beginning of your golf swing. How you address the ball has an effect on your backswing and your backswing has an effect on your forward swing. So, in the chain of events that happens […]

Dear Dr. Divot: Furious

Dear Dr. Divot, I’m 16 and I play a lot of golf. I tried out for the High School team last year and I even play in some tournaments. My handicap index is 10.3. My problem is that I can’t seem to keep my emotions under control. I get really upset with myself when I […]

Dear Dr. Divot: Old and Grumpy

Dear Dr. Divot, What do you make of guys who treat our great game like a big frat party? I get really upset when I see “players” who don’t respect the game, who think golf is an excuse to drink beer and smoke cigars and ride around in a cart. And, oh yes, occasionally hit […]

Dear Dr. Divot: Frustrated

Dear Dr. Divot, I make a point of turning in all of my scores – even nine-holers (and a few I’m not too proud of) – so I know my handicap is accurate. Problem is, some of the guys I play with seem to hone their handicaps to a number they like and then never […]

Dear Dr. Divot: Curious

Dear Dr. Divot, I’ve got two questions for you, Doc. The guys I started playing with “roll” the ball in the fairway. In other words, it’s “winter rules” year ’round. And two of these guys use distance-measuring devices on every shot. One has pictures on a screen and the other measures yardage to the flagstick. […]
