I’ve done it! I know exactly what I want out of my golf swing. A golf swing that proves manageable and repeatable.
And being relatively mobile, I’m light years ahead of the curve. My ideal shot shape is a slight push. No draws, no fading in conventional terms, just aim left of my target and push the golf ball towards it. Never going left of the initial target is all that really matters. Everything that stays right… or righter… of it brings me great comfort.
Right is right. This shot is simpler for me and the demons stay at bay. Mechanically, the checklist becomes quite manageable. Now, in no way am I endorsing that this shot shape is the be all, end all. I wouldn’t care if a golfer closed their stance and pulled the golf ball at the target, as long as they own it! Owning your golf swing is what matters. Is it proficient?

Golf balls go forever, great old courses are becoming irrelevant, we are in the midst of a battle to keep golfers around. Trying to fill courses and feed the machine that is the golf business is hard.

In the “olden days” one had to go to a golf course, and into the pro shop to meet the golf professionals face to face. Nowadays however, the Alberta PGA is on the road to making that initial meet-and-greet a little easier by putting the pros’ faces out in the community to better interact with the general public.
Phil Berube, the executive director of the Alberta PGA, explained that a trial run with such an undertaking proved to be a huge success in Calgary last year and as such the association is looking forward to growing the game through more of the same this year.
