Learn more about all the elements of a quality golf game

Years before the internet, if you wanted to learn more about golf your options were limited.

Your choices might have been:

  • ask a friend who was better than you at golf
  • learned about golf in high school gym class
  • went to a golf course and worked with a golf pro
  • or you just went and played how you thought

Now, with the internet, there is a lot of information, potentially too much information. Chances are you are now overwhelmed with all of the information and don’t know what to believe or which article to use.

I hope to help with that. This page is a growing collection of articles, videos, infographics and links to the best information on golf.

If you are serious about improving your golf game. From your knowledge of the game to lowering your score or just having more fun with the game. The best advice I can provide is to choose one place to use as your golf library.

My goal here is to provide my knowledge of the game of golf.

This will include my own instruction and advice and other resources from other golf professionals. Golf advice from either myself or other golf professionals around the world that share the same principles as I do.

It’s one thing to try and learn what you see online, but I can show you in person how to perform the technique you are trying to learn.

Please feel free to contact me and ask me anything about golf.
