5 Shots Lower WITHOUT Changing Your Swing (Dr Karl Morris)

He’s the guy who put the “red dot” on Louis Oosthuizen’s glove when he won The Open at St Andrew’s in 2010.  He works with Graeme McDowell and tonight, he worked with me. OK, so it was me and 50 other people at Bristol & Clifton Golf Club where Karl presented his “5 Shots Lower […]

Quintero Golf Club (Scottsdale) – Course Review

Quintero Golf Club Course Planner cover

Today’s outing was at Quintero Golf Club. It’s a decent distance out of Scottsdale, at least as far as Gold Canyon, if not a bit further. We are staying at the Talking Stick Resort so it was pretty easy driving on the 101 freeway, then I17 north and SR74 west, even coming back at 6:30pm […]

We Ko Pa – Saguaro Course – Review

IMG_2273

Today’s outing was at We Ko Pa on the Saguaro Course which is Scottsdale desert golf at its finest. We were a bit rushed when we first got there as I’d misjudged the the length of time to get there. We were paired up with another single player, which was fine as it slowed down […]

Today’s outing was to the Dinosaur Course at Gold Canyon Golf Resort. About a 45 min drive from The Talking Stick Resort where we are staying it is well worth the drive. Par 70, 6,323 yards off the Black tees, and for my American golfing friends, a Course Rating of 69.2 and a Slope Rating […]

So, that was that. Pebble Beach Links, done, played. We rocked up in plenty of time to go to the range and hit 50 balls or so, a bit of a chip & a putt and then it was down to the 1st tee. Our playing partners were two brothers, Rick & Steve Rash (Scottsdale […]

Spyglass Hill at Pebble Beach – My day out

The clock at Spyglass Hill up close and personal

I don’t know why I thought of it, but it struck me in the plane on the way over that like most US golf courses, I would have to buy a course planner for the courses at Pebble Beach. But then I caught myself and said, “Really, at $385 for a round at Spyglass Hill, […]

Saunton spring outing

Finally, some good weather coincided with my availability over the Easter weekend to have a quick flit to Saunton.  It’s one of the advantages of having a Country Membership down there and living in Bristol.  In just over two hours you can be on the first tee cracking one away down the 470 yard, par […]

Closed season swing changes underway

First lesson of the year this morning. Just about every Friday morning from now until the end of March booked in from 8am – 9am with my great coach Paul Mitchell (http://www.paulmitchellpga.co.uk/Staff). Trying to get my swing a bit more “inside to out” to prevent my “big fade misses”. The work with the driver is […]

Gilroy wins the 2013 Gilroy/Taylor Tour (14½ : 2½)

There was going to be no repeat of my collapse in the 2012 tournament.  Last year I got 8:2 up and then managed to lose all 8 of the next 8 games and lose 8:10. This year I got ahead just as early on in the year but Mark could not catch up .  He […]
