    THE PLAYERS

    It’s been almost a week since THE PLAYERS Championship ended with the crowning of Tiger Woods as the champion. This year’s tournament had everything - great weather, big crowds, and lots of excitement generated by the ‘young guns’ on the PGA TOUR. But did it have you? Yes, you could have watched it on television but wouldn’t it have been better to be here in person?

    It’s spring break here in North Florida and the weather has been just perfect.Can you say 80 degrees and sunny every day for the past week? While a good portion of the United States has been enjoying warmer weather (and yes, even 80 degrees in Chicago), I don’t think very many places can boast about lush green fairways and azaleas in bloom.

    The European Tour’s Danny Denison seems to be channeling Ben Hogan. Like the all-time great, Denison suffered a career-threatening injury in 2007 when he broke both his legs in a car crash shortly after competing in The 2007 Open Championship. He spent nearly two years on the sidelines and after rehabilitation returned to competitive golf in 2009. He has continued his improvement and this year won the ECCO Tour Championship on the European Tour.

  • Grip Tips to Improve Your Golf Game

    Grip
    February 02, 2010 4:39 pm MST

    One of the most common and disastrous swing faults that I see among golfers is re-gripping the golf club at the top of the swing. Re-gripping means you have allowed the fingers of your left hand (for right-hand golfers) to loosen on the club as you near the top of your swing. Then, as you transition from the back swing to the forward swing, you re-tighten your grip with those fingers. This initiates you casting the club over the top of the proper swing plane and results in you hitting either a weak slice or a pull-hook (depending on the angle of your club face at impact).
