|The 11th Annual Dan McCarty Golf Classic is now in the record books. We miss DJ, but remember all his sage advice...|
| Don't buy a putter until you've had a chance to throw it. |
Never try to keep more than 300 separate thoughts in your mind during your swing.
When your shot has to carry over a water hazard, you can either hit one more club or two more balls
If you're afraid a full shot might reach the green while the foursome ahead of you is still putting out, you have two options: you can immediately shank a lay-up or you can wait until the green is clear and top a ball halfway there.
The less skilled the player, the more likely he is to share his ideas about the golf swing
The inevitable result of any golf lesson is the instant elimination of the one critical unconscious motion that allowed you to compensate for all of your many other errors.
| If it isn't broke, try changing your grip.|
Golfers who claim they don't cheat also lie.
It is surprisingly easy to hole a fifty foot putt for an 8.
Nonchalant putts count the same as chalet putts.
It's not a game if you're still away.
The game of golf is 90% mental and 10% mental.
Hazards attract, fairways repel.
| Counting on your teammate to inform you if he broke a rule is like expecting him to make fun of his balding head.|
The shortest distance between any two points on a golf course is a straight line that passes directly through the center of a very large tree.
There are two kinds of bounces; unfair bounces and bounces just the way you meant to play it.
You can hit a two acre fairway 10% of the time and a two-inch branch 90% of the time.
Everyone replaces his divot after a perfect approach shot.
A golf match is a test of your skill against your opponents luck.
If you really want to get better at golf, go back and take it up at a much earlier age
Since bad shots come in groups of three, a fourth bad shot is actually the beginning of the next group of three.
When you look up, causing an awful shot, you will always look down again at exactly the moment when you ought to start watching the ball if you ever want to see it again.
Every time a golfer makes a birdie, he must subsequently make two triple bogeys to restore the fundamental equilibrium of the universe.
If you want to hit a 7 iron as far as Tiger Woods does, simply try to lay-up just short of a water hazard.
To calculate the speed of a player's downswing, multiply the speed of his back-swing by his handicap; i.e., back-swing 20 mph, handicap 30, downswing= 600 mph.
There are two things you can learn by stopping your back-swing at the top and checking the position of your hands: how many hands you have, and which one is wearing the glove.
You can put a draw on the ball, you can put a fade on the ball, but no golfer can put a straight on the ball.
A ball you can see in the rough from 50 yards away is not yours. If there is a ball in the fringe and a ball in the bunker, your ball is in the bunker. If both balls are in the bunker, yours is in the footprint.
