I have been reading a lot Leo Babaouta’s stuff over at zenhabits.net lately and I have been really impressed. He has a very simple philosophy on life and it resonated with the way I had been thinking for quite a while now. In the modern age of commercialism, internet, TV, magazines and mobile phones it can […]

Good Ball Striking the key to good putting at Augusta

Post Image

The greens at Augusta are always a point of huge debate. Every year we see great players looking foolish as they struggle with the lightening pace of the Augusta greens.

john-wooden

I have been thinking about this for a while now and as far as I can see. Goals don’t work, winning is a temporary pleasure at best. The immediate high after winning a tournament, a match or a medal is soon replaced with a ‘what now’ feeling. I believe that those who really make the most out […]
