Great Reads

On this page, I will share with you guys some of the reads on the game of golf that I’ve found interesting and useful. For me, one of the most intriguing things about golf it’s complexity. We will never know everything about the game; there’s always room for improvement. All we can do is constantly strive for personal improvement. Learning from others’ experiences is one way of elevating our perspectives and skill levels. I think you will find a few things in the articles below that you can apply to your own game. Please let me know if you have other articles that you have learned from!

(1): Goeff Ogilvy’s Formula for Winning Again
This article is written by Ogilvy himself. Ogilvy was a very successful PGA Tour player in the middle of the first decade of the 21st century. He is a major winner, clinching the 2006 US Open. However, Ogilvy experienced a slump in his game after his success that lasted several years. In the article, Ogilvy explains how he changed his perspective to get back into the winner-circle on the PGA Tour. Enjoy.

This read is on our own Head Coach, Mike McGraw. Written by Golf Channel’s Ryan Lavner, this lengthy article uncovers McGraw’s beleifs on coaching, and his approach on tournament golf.

(3) Abu Dhabu Collapse Was a Life Lesson
Martin Kaymer is one of my favorite golfers, mostly because of the way he carries himself. You can just tell the guy is intelligent and very reflected. The article is from his “choke” in a European tour event in Abu Dabi where he lost a ten shot lead. Great insight into a very balanced and reflected man!
