One of the most popular ways to end the season at my club is with a 3 clubs and a putter tournament. It is often the only time that most golfers even think about going out with less than 14 clubs. As a minimalist golfer most of the time, it isn’t really a big surprise… Read More »3 Clubs and a Putter
I have been a keen golfer for over three decades. Over that time, I have tried almost everything on the market in terms of equipment. I am particularly interested in single length irons and minimalist golf and would consider myself an expert on both.
Like most golfers, I have a couple of ‘signature misses’ in my game. That iron shot that goes high towards the flag and then turns left into the bunker is a personal favourite for example. One other one that I have struggled with in the past is pulling wedge shots. This is quite a common… Read More »Pulling Wedge Shots-Cause and Cures
Golf analysis has reached some pretty amazing levels over the last decade or so. The amount of statistical data that we can find on all sorts of things from swing data to putting performance is just unbelievable really. The danger is of course that we can get lost in all these facts and figures. Out… Read More »Tracking/Stats: Worth Worrying About?

I am planning to write a series of articles looking at these stats and the importance they might (or might not) have for the average golfer. One of the most used reference points on the course is greens in regulation.… Read More »What are Greens in Regulation?
Shaft Flex is always a hot issue in the golf world. What any given golfer “should” be playing is always open for debate as the keyboard warriors flex their critical muscles behind their screens. To be fair, I did have a few preconceived notions on this stuff myself but the more I try different things,… Read More »Why I Play an X Stiff Shaft in My Irons
I have written quite a bit about finding solutions around the green and playing the percentages. This might mean using the bump and run as often as possible or even investing in a chipper. I think these are examples for smart thinking for many golfers if you are looking to keep big numbers off the… Read More »Hitting the Lob Shot
Back to one of my favourite subjects today with one length irons. I think I have said everything I can about my experiences with them and then I realise that this is actually miles from the truth! I was talking to a friend about clubs between driver and the iron set the other day and… Read More »Single Length Long Irons
One of my favourite subjects is that of single length irons. I have written about what I perceive to be their advantages and disadvantages as well as things that come from my experience with them. One of the associations people have with single length is the idea of a one-plane golf swing. I understand why… Read More »One-plane Golf Swing
There is a lot of misunderstanding about what makes the ball do what it does after it has been struck. In fact, some of this comes from the traditional view of the ball flight laws before modern tech like flightscope and trackman really told us what is going on with the club face and path… Read More »Golf Ball Flight Laws
