GOLF TIP OF THE WEEK

90% of all golfers tee the ball up to low!

When a ball is on a tee, IT IS OK to swing up on the ball. Technically we call that ascending.

When a ball is on the turf it is best to descend on the ball. 

GOLF JOKE OF THE WEEK

A golfer and his buddies were hosting a party at the course's clubhouse. The golfer stood to make a toast, saying "Here's to the worst golfer in the world, wherever he may be." The hundred voices of his friends and their wives rang out,  saying "Here! Here!" 

Keep it in the Middle !
