Happy Mothers Day
Mar 30, 2015 2:34 PM
 
While I believe everyday should be mother’s day, here are only few women that are mother and play professional golf, and Cristie Kerr is one of them. She is the winner of Sunday match at the Kia Classic and a mother of adorable boy. The 37-year-old golfer is known for her toughness and serious commitment to golf. Working mothers can only success with the help and support of her partner, the same applies to women in golf. Kerr’s husband Erik Stevens is there to support and appreciate the moment with his wife. Is a moment of celebration the same if your family is not with you? Or do you feel the same if your child runs around to celebrate that happy moment? This is the moment you cannot describe, it is the moment you are not sure, which is the big key to your happiness. Is it the winning game or is it the family? Or could be both? As I grew up in a big family I appreciate the happiness of any of my success through celebration with a family events. So did Kerr in her last game as she claimed her 17th LPGA title and the first since the Kingsmill Championship. Her happiest doubled as she saw her child in the background and her husband standing to support. Photo Credit: Activerain.com, 2015

The Average cost of playing golf
Mar 19, 2015 5:17 PM
 
Golf is an expensive game as many of you are aware, but recently Golf Channel conducted a survey and found that about 30,000 rounds of golf are played on American golf courses each year. Day of the week, the golf course itself, and the tee time are the indicator of creating the cost for a round of golf. The median cost of 18 holes in a public golf course in a weekend is $36 this includes a cart. A private golf course is a little bit higher than a public golf course, and the median of privately owned golf course is $40 per weekend. It is also known that the newer the golf course is, the expensive the membership and tee off fees are. The average cost of a new golf course for an 18 hole round on a weekend is $60.55 for courses that are built in 1990 or after. The courses built between 1970 and 1990 charge $48.33 and any course before that time charges $42.70. This is surprising, as the price of old historical golf courses should be higher compared to the newer golf courses. Although, the new golf courses have newer green areas and nice views, it can not be compared with the rich history of old days. Photo Credit: Baligolfpackage.com, 2015

Who hires the Caddies?
Mar 17, 2015 6:14 PM
 
While many wonder and assume that the caddies are employed by the Tour, I will share that this is the wrong idea. The caddies are not employed by the Tour, but rather employed by the golfer and they are not compensated by the Tour. Why talk about compensation today? There is a trick that consists of compensation to the Tour when a caddie takes off his bib. During a Tour caddie is suppose to wear a bib and if taken off while walking on the green, he can be fine up to $500. Recently, 167 including Tiger Woods caddie Steve Williams joined a lawsuit against the PGA Tour. The lawsuit is set for $50 million per season, and it address that the caddies wear bibs with sponsor’s name on them without any compensation. The actions taken show that the Tour treat caddies different as compared to the Professional Golfers, almost like second-class citizens. Lets not forget that those caddies are the main reason behind the success of the famous golfers. Last month Steve Williams was fine $500 for taking off his bib on the 18th green of a tournament. Originally, 80 caddies filed the complaint on Feb. 3rd , but the increasing number sine than indicate that most of the caddies are not treated well and are fined. Photo Credit: Golfstinks.com, 2015

PGA Tour- 10 things not to do
Mar 12, 2015 7:23 PM
 
10 things you shouldn't do at a PGA Tour 1. If you are not playing golf don't wear your golf shoes. 2. Although, it is nice to drink beer and smoke a cigar, it can also be distracting and irritating for other viewers. 3. Yelling is motivating in some games but not at golf. Yelling mash potato “Baba Booey” can be compelling after you got it from television, it is still disrespectful. 4. Autographs are unique and worth a lot for some people, but giving priority to children would not be a bad idea. For them it’s more than a dream come true. 5. Don't offer to be the commentary at the golf course. There are some professionals that take on this job and they have spent days and nights over the course to have a great knowledge of the course. 6. Don't act like a child while walking around professional golfers. For example dressing in tigers costume around Tiger Woods. Golfers walk right in front of fans and this the opportunity to say something great and not dumb. 7. Obey to the cell phone policy of the course you are attending. It is important to show respect to the players and those around you. 8. Don't be a marshal disobeyer. Even though it is clear and many people do follow the sign and keep quite when a player is about to hit some still continue to disobey. 9. Don't compromise your experience at the PGA Tour event, by showing up without any clue. Checking the list of prohibited items and idea of the course layout will help you understand and follow your game better. 10. The final thing is to interrupt a trophy presentation by doing something idiotic. It just aggravates the experience for others and the players final win. Photo Credit: PGATour. Com, 2015

Massive Dinosaur- Like Alligator Loves Golf
Mar 11, 2015 5:27 PM
 
It is common to come across unusual animals, items, or sharks in the ponds around a golf course. It only makes your game interesting and excited, but what would you do if you came across something that would scare the life out you. Recently, in Englewood Florida a large alligator was spotted. Well, to call that an alligator would be great, it is not just an alligator it is a massive dinosaur-like alligator. Although, some think that it is not true and it could have been Photoshop, you never know the truth. In previous blog I talked about a shark in the one of the pond of golf course in Australia. Approximately 13-feet long called the Myakka Pines Golf Club a home. The size of this gator is making people question, whether it is real if so what type of gator is this? The walk style of this gator made others wonder whether he is walking like human. Prior to this gator there was a larger gator known as Big George, lived at the golf course for decade before he died. The wildlife in golf course are no harmful they are just the spice to the game. It attracts people to attend the golf course for extra fun and interest. Adventures and wildlife should not stop anyone from playing golf. Photo Credit: Nydailynews.com, 2015

Five things to know about golf in Ireland
Mar 10, 2015 6:06 PM
 
Here are five most important things to learn about golf in Ireland. 1. Northwest and southwest Ireland have different appeals. The west side is home for seaside tours, and golf courses are placed across. The southwest side of golf courses has the most popular links. The northwest on the other hand is a rural region and the getting from one point to another is not easy. 2. Golfer airport is Shannon Airport in Ireland, even though Dublin is the largest city. Shannon airport have shorter flights from North America, and since airport is small it is easier to get around. 3. The mix of new and old links are an interesting combination. The links are dated back to the 19th century, and the history creates a special touch. 4. Many golfers started their game with practicing in Ireland. In the past players such as Tiger Woods and Payne Steward prepared for the British Open by spending their time in Ireland. 5. Irish love is always something that one would want to go back to. The blind of love and the links of Ireland can not stop anyone. The fairway connected through the pin or a small pole builds your strength and a need for a good a caddie.

Golf Club Abuse
Mar 8, 2015 12:18 AM
 
Frustration can cause many things in golf, as mentioned in many of my previous golf blogs. Anger, stress, and frustration seems to be the worst enemy for a successful game. It can put you down and make you lose hope, which certainly leads to failure in golf. The same happened to Rory Mcllory this weekend. Rory Mcllory the No.1 player showed his frustration by throwing his golf club at the lake. He is not the only player to show such emotion and frustration at a golf course, many other famous players have long topped that path. But the question is whether 30 second of relieve by throwing a club in the air can make any changes? Will it make you win or change your score? The answer is No! Frustration and anger can only give you shorter than a minute relieve but it will slowly affect your mentality and your abilities. As the player said “it felt good at the time”, but obviously later it did not change anything. Keeping a peaceful mind and stress free mentality can help you improve and aim higher. One may say “it is easier said than done”, and certainly well said but always considering the fact whether expressing anger can make any changes will allow a person to think twice. Although, Mcllroy did express his frustration in an interesting why some found it funny. When it comes to throwing clubs around Stenson holds a metaphorical master’s degree. As a playing partner he found this funny and some comic relief. Photo Credit: Nydailynews.com, Rory Mcllroy, 2015

It will provide team work and decision making process as a team in the most challenging situations. The 700 yard golf course consist of natural obstacles and difficult steps. Fitness and sport is taken to the next level, providing greater emphasis in golf. It is the result of men and women focusing on golf today.

The re-imagined golf holes will train and test golf players in the hardest position. The series will feature 8 people with 2-person teams, consisting running against the clock and try to take risk for the extreme golf holes. Montego Bay, Jamaica will hold the inaugural of the show, including the Montego Bay’s premier courses for the first to stages of the competition. This interesting yet learning experience will provide golfers with the experience that they will value in the remaining of their games. The Hyaat Zilara and Hyaat Ziva Rose Hall resort will have a part in the filming of the series. Team work, shared values, collaboration can be the key to success for the team, and it does not seem to be a problem for golfers as they are build with these skills everyday by practicing. The humble and positive attitude can give players the advantage over others. Photo Credit: Twincities, 2015

Golf is like a candy with a toddler, once taste it cannot be forgotten. It is for many reasons though that golfers can’t forget the taste of golf.

Golf is that positive energy passed through your lungs from the green fairways and reached your mind. Golf can create the interest in your life that you would not want to forget so did Palmer.

Since 2007 Palmer has been an honorary starter at the Masters. The dislocated shoulder from Father-Son Challenge tournament in December does not stop him to join Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player alongside to start the tournament. It is the dedication to golf and legacy that he wants to follow. Photo Credit: Arnold Palmer . Com, 2015
