Why do you play the clubs that you play? I bet that when you bought them, you told everyone how great they look. They "felt" right to your eye's. I bet that you told everyone that they were some variation of the word; "smooth." They felt right swinging in your hands. They felt right at impact. I recently turned down a brand new, way below cost, hybrid. I didn't like the feel of the shaft or the feel of the club-face at impact. I would have never used it, regardless of how much it cost.
Mike Maves and Jimmy Nissen talk about this week in golf history, cover a few questions related to instruction, and the two pull out some Jackie Burke audio from the archives.
In this edition of the Secret in the Dirt podcast, Mike Maves and Jimmy Nissen recap how their picks did at the Houston Open, plus Steve Elkington stops by to give his take on the weeks events + some thoughts for this week's Valero Texas Open.
I apologize for being away from my blog for the past few weeks. I have a deadline with my publisher for submitting the manuscript for my second book, and I'd say it'll be here before I know it, but I know full well that huge monster is putting a warm, stinky breath on my collar line right now. So, almost all writing I do is work related. It's also limited my golf, but that's another matter.
I guess I've been busy enough that I'm late in coming to the party of reading the "Golf Saved My Life" essays that have been printed in Golf Digest. Read them! You'll feel justified in your participation in the game, even if others continue to condescend.
