Course Management

    Course management, what is that? For many of us the closest we come to course management is trying to decide which course to play? The professionals walk the course with their caddie and play every shot in their mind before they even get out their clubs. They have determined which holes favor their game and which have the potential to cause them trouble. They know where the best opportunities on the course lie for them to be aggressive and which… Read More »Course Management

    Black, Blue, White Or Gold?

      What set of tees are you playing from? Playing from the tips brings a whole new meaning to the game of golf. For most of us weekend golfers, playing from the back tees would only lead to another round of frustration rather than a wonderful day on the links. Unless you are planning to go on tour or trying to win your club championship, you should wisely consider playing from the tees that best reflect your skill level. Having a… Read More »Black, Blue, White Or Gold?


        There are lots of golfers that play the game and have a wonderful time and never keep score. This is usually a sign of someone who is just starting out learning how to play. We all remember how much fun it was just to be on the course and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Everything changed when we made our first real par. Now we had a goal, we wanted to do it again, again and again. No longer were we… Read More »Scorecard

        Improving Your Short Game

          For most golfers, spending time on the driving range working on hitting our driver longer or straighter is time well spent and practice we tend to enjoy. There is just something about hitting the long ball over and over and the exhilaration of seeing the ball in flight. Spending a few hours working on our short game from the sand and rough can have a dramatic impact on our game. There is no question that getting off the tee is… Read More »Improving Your Short Game

          Play From The Right Set Of Tees

            There is nothing more frustrating than playing behind a foursome that is playing from the wrong set of tees. It is obvious to everyone on the course but them. They are playing from the black tees with a 30 handicap and a slim chance to ever see a par. The tips are designed with the most talented and skilled player in mind while the blue, white, and gold tees are less demanding. Playing from the wrong set of tees can… Read More »Play From The Right Set Of Tees

            Don’t Forget Your Short Game

              If you are going to increase your chances for par you are going to have to develop a good short game. Getting on in regulation on every hole for most of us is a dream and if you think about it the pros understand that they are not going to get on every time. Developing a touch around the green can increase your percentages like few other golf shots can do. Over the years I mastered the little bump and… Read More »Don’t Forget Your Short Game

              The Club vs. The Swing

                Let’s assume that we are going to send you to play in the Masters, every golfer’s ultimate fantasy. There are two things you can choose from, you can pick only one. You can have the clubs of any player who has ever played the game of golf or you can have their ability, which would you choose? Certainly, you would choose their ability. The swing is more valuable than the clubs. Financially, what do the financial institutions deliver? They have… Read More »The Club vs. The Swing

                Your Favourite Club

                  Every golfer has their favorite club. That one club you hit better than any other. From time to time we hit every club well but there is that one club we hit well consistently. When a golfer learns which club they hit best, it makes sense that they try to leave themselves in position to use it whenever possible. It is much the same way with financial products as well. Some people like real estate, others mutual funds, others stocks… Read More »Your Favourite Club

                  Cart or Caddie

                    There is a very unique relationship between a player and their caddie. Unfortunately the caddie for most of us non tour playing fanatics has been replaced with GPS systems that can only tell you how far you are from the pin. It can’t tell you which club would be best to hit given the elevation of the green and the direction of the wind. Have you ever noticed that not one professional on the tour carries their own bag? While… Read More »Cart or Caddie

                    Avoiding The Hazards

                      In 2005, Tiger Woods won his eleventh major, the British Open, and only used his driver once in the entire four rounds. While others were trying to capitalize on the roll they would get bombing it off the tee, Tiger was orchestrating a controlled trip around the course purposed on missing the bunkers. He knew that avoiding the hazards offered the best chance to win. Our financial course is covered with hazards, some you can’t even see from the tee… Read More »Avoiding The Hazards

                      Risk And Reward

                        Golf course design is a thing of beauty and the variety of holes is what keeps us wanting to play every course on the planet. There are some par 5’s that are long with little trouble and are often birdied while others are almost impossible to reach in three. There are short par 4’s that are reachable with a great drive but offer no consolation for a ball miss hit. Like a downhill, dogleg left, 279 yard par 4, with… Read More »Risk And Reward

                        You Drive For Show And Putt For Dough

                          There is no doubt that hitting your driver on the screws 300 yards down the middle of the fairway is exhilarating. We love the feel of the club head speed and the sound the driver makes as it makes contact with the ball. How much time do you spend working on your putting vs hitting your driver? On the tour the slogan is “putt for dough”. Ask any professional and they will quickly tell you that the most valuable club… Read More »You Drive For Show And Putt For Dough
