Join a golf team: Whether you're 15 or 50, there's something for you

Join a golf team: Whether you're 15 or 50, there's something for you

By Matt Weinberger

 

Youth sports are critical in developing teamwork skills for kids. Whether it be basketball, soccer, baseball etc., many important life lessons and skills are gained through team sports at a young age.

Golf as a whole often gets a bad rap as an “individual” sport. While this can be true for stroke-play tournaments, there is a growing emphasis on team golf. Over the past 15 years, the industry has recognized the importance of incorporating the team aspect into golf. Not merely as a way to get more kids into the game, but also to grow and sustain golf participation.

2018 Major Championships: What you need to know

By Oliver Mauk

The calendar is getting ready to turn from March to April, and for golf that means Major Championships season is upon us. Here is what you need to know about this years biggest tournaments. 

The Masters: April 5-8, Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Georgia

The one major that takes place on the same course every year, the green jacket is perhaps the most coveted prize in all of golf. The biggest draw this year will be the return of Tiger Woods. He's the favorite to win thanks to the Vegas odds makers, even though he hasn't won a major since the 2008 US Open. Jordan Spieth, Rory Mcilroy, and Dustin Johnson are the other big names with a huge chance to win at Augusta. 

Projected winning score: -14 

The scores have fluctiated here throughout the years, but if the weather is nice you can expect a few guys to go pretty low.

Switching from a feel player to using a rangefinder

Switching from a feel player to using a rangefinder

By Mike Devlin

 

I wouldn't consider myself "old" by any means. However, when I was growing up rangefinders didn't exist. When they started becoming prevalent, I was skeptical and wanted nothing to do with them.  I was stuck in my old ways of pacing off yardage from sprinkler heads, using pin-sheets when available and going with my gut on certain shots.
