Swing Oil – Supplement Science or Clever Marketing?

“Swing Oil” is a slang term golfers sometimes use referring to a stiff drink or painkillers to help them loosen up to play golf. In my personal experience, when I talk about taking some swing oil it usually means popping three Advil about an hour before teeing off. I have a friend who’s version of […]

Destination: Morocco

Here in the western hemisphere, Morocco is not a country that most people would have on their short list as a potential overseas vacation destination. You don’t have to have a degree political science to understand why many American tourists tend to avoid Islamic nations like Morocco. It’s unfortunate because there’s no reason for anyone […]

Can Hybrid Courses Save Golf?

Whenever I participate in a discussion about growing the game of golf, I’m reminded of a line from a movie I saw a few years ago that goes: “When a forrest grows too wild, a purging fire is inevitable and natural.” What I’m trying to say is – Like the forrest that burns down, the […]

The Search for the Perfect 3-Wood

My golf buddies are well aware of my struggle. I’ve had a love-hate relationship with my three wood for a long time. For whatever reason – and there have been many – I have had a terrible time trying to find the right combination of loft, club head and shaft to make a three wood […]

Farewell to the King

Last night as I was watching the PGA Tour Champions playoff in Canada between Colin Montgomery and Scott McCarron, the broadcast cut to the Golf Channel studios where Rich Lerner delivered the news.

Biion Builds a Better Golf Shoe

Since taking up golf in the early 1990’s, I’ve tried on a lot of different golf shoes. In fact, my golf shoe collection is getting a bit ridiculous with over two dozen pairs and counting. However, I have only three or four favorites that I wear consistently. The rest only come out once in a […]

Leupold GX-2i2 Rangefinder

It wasn’t that long ago that I remember playing golf without any distance measuring devices other than a bush around the 150 yard mark in the fairway. Along came the 100, 150, 200 and 250 yard markers, then sprinkler heads all over the course were marked with yardages. From there, it wasn’t long before laser […]

Ever Play Hurricane Golf?

Hurricane golf? Yeah, it’s really a thing. I doubt I’m the first one to do it, but a few buddies and I once played golf in a hurricane just for the hell of it. In the late 90s I was working as a greens-keeper at a golf course down here in Florida. Normally when a […]

Legendary Canadian golfer Moe Norman used to say he was the only player in the world that could play a tournament at night, because he hit the ball so straight there was never any need to see where it went. He knew where it was going – right down the middle, every time. Unfortunately, you […]

Lostgolfballs.com – Never Buy New Golf Balls Again
