Don’t let your game get Moldy

One of my worst habits is leaving empty banana peels in my bedroom dustbin. Because I don’t often eat in my room, I seldom have to empty this dustbin. This means that after about three weeks I’m treated to what looks like a massive green spider web erupting from bin, and with the smell to match this splendid  home for excessive mold. Fortunately, it doesn’t have any major consequences. The mold basically stems from an act of neglect on my part. In many ways, leaving your golf game for several weeks at a time will also lead to the production of mass quantities of mold.  Golfing mold feasts off your short game first, then it preys on your drives and then all of a sudden you’re struggling to strike an 8 iron.

Don’t let this happen to you. Take a look at this picture of neglected teeth.

Do you really want your golf game to demonstrate the effects of neglect?

Smoking Hot Golfer Ladies

One of the saddest things about golf is that there aren’t enough female golfers. Some guys will literally force their wives to play in an attempt to infect them with the golfing bug, but how seldom it is that they actually catch this bug. I’m sure most golfers can relate to this, which is why this post is here to show you that golfer ladies do exist, and every now and then they are smoking  hot.

Just bare in mind that unless you are a professional golfer these ladies can probably out-drive you and almost certainly outplay you. It just goes to show that sometimes you can actually have your cake and eat it.

Tiger and Barack, Kings of contemporary America

How is it that two African American men have come to be the most successful people in two of the most traditionally caucasian domains in history? Barack Obama is, dare I say it, the First ‘Black man’ to enter the ‘White House’ as President and Tiger Woods has demolished the assumption that golf is a game only for White dudes. Maybe the question is too broad to answer adequately, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters is that these two men have become heroes, consummate professionals who inspire millions of people everyday, in every corner of the world.

Has there every been a President so loved and so ridiculously cool. Forget the Beatles, Obama really is more popular than Jesus.

Watching Tiger Woods play golf is like witnessing the evolution of man. His level of excellence is simply astounding. Let us all be thankful for the privelage of seeing him play and wish that his knee recovers to full health.

Praticing at Home

A lot of golfers don’t practice enough. In most cases the range is either too far,  too expensive, or simply too inconvenient to get to.  The solution to this problem is very simple…Build a practice range in your back garden.

A simple practice net

A simple and affordable solution

Three good reasons to buy a practice net:

1 You can unleash your driver without going to the range (or killing anybody)

2 You can find some really cheap practice nets that work perfectly well

3 You can work on your swing whenever you like

Of course setting up a  practice net doesn’t mean you can forget your short game.  To work on your short game at home I suggest purchasing a chipping net or simply using a circular object that can be aimed at. I personally use an upside down dustbin (trash can) lid.

Chipping Practice

Chipping Practice is essential for lowering your handicap

Finally, a putting mat is also a good buy if you want to take your game to the next level. If you are really skint then a carpet should suffice, provided you have something to aim for like a peg or a box of matches.

Putting Mat

Putting practice: the most under-rated way to a better game

To take your game to the next level, you have to take advantage of your home space. Tiger used to spend hours chipping in his living room, and almost every professional golfer lives on a golf course or has a personal driving range built into their back garden (their gardens are that big). Obviously not everyone can be so lucky, but there is no excuse not to use your garden as a practice facility. Practicing at home will improve your game and lower your handicap, making the game a lot more enjoyable to play.

PS-Make sure you practice putting. It is the easiest part of your game to improve and can take off anything between 1 and 5 shots in an average round.

The Image of Success

2008 was a great year for the golfing world. Trevor Immelman won the US Masters becoming the first South African  since Gary Player to win the Green Jacket. Tiger Woods came through with an emphatic win at the US Open before retiring for the rest of the year due to his problematic knee and Padraig Harrington announced himself as one of the golfing greats in the modern (shall we say postmodern) age by winning the Open Championship and the PGA Championship respectfully.

In this post I present you with the images of their success:

Keep these guys in mind when you are next on the practice range or  the course. They represent the pinnacle of golfing greatness, achievable only through hard work, dedication, hunger and the sheer courage necessary to win a major.  Immelman, Woods and Harrington are the men who beat the world in 2008. Well done to them.

I really enjoy playing golf, although playing bad golf really isn’t all that much fun.  In order fix my game I have decided to dedicate myself to an instructional golf website, providing free video golf lessons on line. img2007-02

To give you a peak into the type of content I will eventually produce, here is a quick youtube video for you to watch:

There’s nothing like a little Tiger magic to get a golfer excited. I apologize to all for the orgasmic impulses it may have induced.

PS-Obviously I am not a professional golfer, but I suspect that there are a lot of professional coaches out there who will be more than happy  to help me out.  Wish me luck, and keep on golfing.
