About this blog

Every golfer has the thought at some point..

"If only I could consistently shoot in the 70s, then I would enjoy golf more."

We get lost in our heads, dreaming of a fantasy where golf was one day an easy game.

What if we didn't have to worry about water hazards, sand, or OB?

What if 3-footers didn't bring us anxiety?

What if we could enjoy that pure strike that we long for on every single shot?

I'd argue that the better a golfer gets, the more enjoyable the game is.

But.. not in the way that most golfers imagine.

In this post, I will be examining our love affair with golf, how we can enjoy the failures that the game inevitably brings us, and why golf will never get easier (but can become more enjoyable).

The Day Golf Became Easier

    • Want to say this was very helpful!  I got the laser and worked with it to determine my aim issues and find out I'm seeing everything as left when it's actually right.  I also realize I'm a left eye dominant right hand putter and go out and buy a no offset putter and change my setup to make sure the putter is pointed to where I think it is.   Go out and play Saturday and sure enough my putting is way more accurate than its ever been!
    • Tier 1: Grip the club properly Tricky one. I struggled with my grip until I adopted a reverse overlap with all of the fingers on my right/lower hand on the grip. Before I had the right pinky overlap, now its the left index finger. Much easier to get the grip in the base of the fingers and get the knuckles right. Tier 2: Learn what "start line" and curve your ball has on any given shot. I think I know what this means... I learned to hit a natural hook/draw. Aim slight
    • My father in law gave me his machine that pumps cold water around his knee from a previous knee replacement. That does the trick quite nicely.
    • Good luck and be diligent with the PT. And ice is your friend. Even if you do stuff around the house, a little ice time will speed recovery.
    • Quick update... I had a cortisone shot in my knee three weeks ago. Hurt like hell for a while, but definitely helped once it soaked in. I started PT last week and it seems be helping. I have not tried swinging a club yet, but then again, I don't need to for quite some time. Stupid winter. 😒
