Hornby Glen – On Par for Enjoyment and Value

Love the fact other bloggers about golf, golf courses and golf travel offer up so much insight and information on what’s it like around the world of golf. I get to live vicariously through them and if by lucky happenstance I get to visit said places, I already know what to expect! priceless.

Hornby Glen – On Par for Enjoyment and Value

Hornby Glen - Open for 2015 Hornby Glen – Open for 2015

My friend originally billed this course as a ‘confidence builder’. ‘It is fairly wide open, we can just bomb it off the tee’, is a paraphrase to how he previewed Hornby Glen. This course is located in Halton Hills, ON and has always provided me a challenge and left me feeling fulfilled; it is a nicely maintained publicly accessible course. I find it an underrated course that will require a complete game to succeed (that said, a good tee time can allow success).

The more I play Hornby Glen the more I like it. The layout is simple and straightforward and I am not being derogatory in saying that. It is a nice course to walk, with a few holes having some modest elevation, as there is a creek bed which dissects the course…

Word Crimes

Well bring out the Grammar Nazis!! At least there are some of you out there that know how to read, write, and possibly grammar check your work before you send it out.

Wait did I use the proper verbiage?

Just 5 Paragraphs

My super pet-peeve (do people still use that phrase?) is the sprinkling of one’s writing with random apostrophes. Like this: random apostrophe’s every time you use plural’s. What is that all about? Please. Stop.  The video above made my day.  Go, Weird Al; and thanks, ReadWriteTeach for posting this on your blog.

Your Favorite Shot In Golf

Moments in golf are almost important as the shot themselves but sometimes you get swept up in the moment. What is your favorite golf shot?

The Grateful Golfer

What is your favorite shot in golf? If you take a moment to think about it, there is that one shot that you love more than any other. Maybe you like it because it keeps you out of trouble. Maybe because the ball flight is something to marvel. Or even it is because the of the sound the ball makes off your club. The reason can be just about anything, but I bet you have a favorite shot in golf.

As I think about this perplexing question, I can visualize every shot in my bag. I can see me standing on the tee as I prepare to smash the cover off the ball. With no difficulty I can see my set up for a wedge shot into the green. And I can imagine making that long left to right putt for birdie! I can visualize every shot, so narrowing down the…

Your Next Shot In Golf

It’s easy to follow up a bad shot with another. The trick is NOT to do that. Here are some thoughts on what to do.

Important Golf Shot Ben Hogan 10th Hole – Glen Abbey Golf Club

Ben Hogan is a genius.

Imagine, after three putting the last hole then talking to yourself to the tee box, you face a tee shot like the 10th hole at Glen Abbey Golf Club. As you approach the hitting area, look out over the hole, you start to think….oh my, now what.

Novice golfers worry about their last shot and forget to focus on what is in front of them. Experienced golfers are able to focus on the job at hand. Competitive golfers are able to execute shots under pressure. Professional golfers think about their next shot and how to take advantage of the hole layout. There are many other variations to focused golf, but I think you get the point.

By following Hogan’s advice to only worry about the next shot, many of us amateurs would cut down on the multiple stokes gained from making a mistake. I…
