JUNE 2015 – A while back I wrote about how the PGA truly needed Tiger Woods. From the endorsements, to the attendance, to the national coverage, to the television contracts and ratings, most know the PGA must prepare for life without Tiger.

PGA commissioner Tim Finchem has made claim after claim the tour will continue to prosper even though it’s No. 1 hero/villain continues to struggle and no longer wears the mantle of the world’s best golfer.

Golf-Ready

JUNE 2015 – Do you suffer common faults during your golf swing?  End your frustrations once and for all.  Equipment technology, sport technique and your body are all opportunities to change your game.

I often encounter individuals that have invested a fortune on golf lessons, new clubs, and the latest trend in swing analysis yet failed to achieve their desired performance results.

Many of these individuals failed to work on the one piece of the puzzle that they have full control over, their body.

Is golf more mental or physical?

JUNE 2015 – Although I played baseball on a professional level for more than 16 seasons, I sometimes wish I had played professional golf.  Both sports are difficult to master and a very small percentage of men and women are able to make their living at either sport.

JUNE 2015 – “Keep your head down!” How many times have you heard those words right before attempting to execute a better golf swing? Too often, that message translates into an expectation that the head is to be kept still. Not so. In fact, it is not possible!

JUNE 2015 – In 1995, the Internet entered mainstream public consciousness. That year, the United States government stopped funding it with public money. America Online and Prodigy released browsers to offer easy access to the World Wide Web for the general public.

MAY 2015 – You finally get some time off in the middle of the week, so you throw “the sticks” in the trunk. You get to your favorite golf course expecting to be able to play 18 without the regular weekend crowd. And then it hits you.

The course is closed for a tournament.

“The advantage to the golfer is that it gives them more options to use that special rate,” said Eagle’s Club golf pro Jay Kennedy.

MAY 2015 – It is fitting one of the area’s most venerable courses is named for two of Johnson County’s most fervent recreation supporters.

Wendell Lady and Ben Sykes were Overland Park’s first two chairmen of the Parks and Recreation Committee and relentlessly worked to develop a strong parks system for the city.

Their combined efforts nearly a half century ago led to the acquisition of land for the Overland Park golf course which bears their name.  A few years later, their hard work again rewarded the community with the purchase of land which contains the St. Andrews golf course, plus the popular Overland Park Soccer Complex and other facilities.
