Coach

Okay, remember what I talked about: Coach Tiger 1. look at your grip 2. where are your feet? 3. where are your hands? 4. what’s your target? 5. what’s your head position? Now, swing... Golf is a tough game-mostly played between the ears. That being said, when we...

The Big Miss Review

Destination

Goals. We all have them. Whether it be at work or play, we are inherently built for autonomy, mastery and learning.  I"m physically fit enough to strike a golf ball within reason.  But last summer and the summer before, that was not happening.  I continued to hit...

In The Moment

What’s it like to stay in the moment? Ask Kyle Stanley. As the Pebble Beach Pro-Am just wrapped up, I want to bring you back to the last two weeks of golf and what Kyle Stanley didn’t and did accomplish. In the moment-a phrase many of us have heard if we have taken...
