Rubbernecking

Posted on by Dave Hill WGCA contributing writer

Yet another Tiger saga abounds. The question begs, why do many say they’re saddened over hearing about his challenges? Life is a challenge. No one said it would be easy, and we’re all responsible for our decisions. As far as I know, Tiger puts his pants on one leg at a time. He has no […]

Walk the Walk

Posted on by Dave Hill WGCA contributing writer

Seldom do I discuss or write about any of my accomplishments in golf because firstly, they are few and far between, and secondly, no one really cares. This past winter, however, I took it upon myself to set a goal to qualify for the MSOP putting championship to be held in late October in Las […]

Time To Change The Message – The Rear Leg, Weight Distribution, How The Spine Turns (Part 2)

As discussed in the previous article, we are moving away from the idea of weight transfer during the backswing. We are also changing the vernacular from weight transfer to pressure change.

Tiger Woods is making another comeback, 466 days after his last competitive round. I’ve lost track as to how many comebacks this will be, but it surpasses his buddy Michael Jordan by multiples.

I woke up Sunday morning, August 14th, thinking about the Olympics and the day’s events. Going to be an exciting day as the gold medal will be decided and, oh yeah, I think there’s golf. The gold medal I’m talking about is, of course, the fastest man on earth. No need to mention a name, […]

TIGER’S ADVANTAGE

Posted on by Dave Hill WGCA contributing writer

Tiger Woods averaged 342 yards off the tee at the 1996 Masters, his second year playing the event. We all know how the story went in 1997 with his dominating 12-stroke margin of victory. Pictured below were his tools of the trade. What is remarkably noticeable are the two steel-shafted small-headed woods. His driver was […]

A STILL SHOT

Posted on by Dave Hill WGCA contributing writer

A photograph is a still shot in our minds, a suspension of time, a memory that gives and helps of live. This article will be short. I recently lost someone close, a pillar of stability in our family. It is in these times as humans we reflect about life. None of us know our destiny. […]
