Easy to Keep Golf Resolutions for 2013

Once again, it's
that time of the year to make our annual golf resolutions. Like years past, we convince ourselves that we can keep these resolutions throughout the year but usually forget they even existed by mid-January. Can you remember what your resolutions were last year? Probably not. But this year it's different. 

Here are our Top 10 easy to keep golf resolutions:

1. Practice, practice, practice. Spending more time at the range or with a teaching pro is the only way to see major improvements!

2. Stay focused. It's so easy to get mentally derailed by one bad shot, when, in reality, that's all it is -- one bad shot.

3. Increase strength and flexibility. Work on improving flexibility through stretching and some core strengthening exercises. This is not an "I need to exercise more" resolution, that's on our other list! There will be more yoga and kettle bell training in 2013!

4. Consistency off the tee.
Hit more fairways and stay out of trouble off the tee. If this means hitting a 3-wood or a long iron, so be it. But, play smarter!

5. Master a new technique.
Getting out of green side bunkers with confidence and consistency continues to be a top goal.

6. Play a new course. It's a great way to meet new people and get out of the home-course comfort zone.

7. Control tempo. Grip it and rip it fine but only if you can control it. Tempo is key to making solid contact.

8. Introduce 3 women to golf. With so many women telling us they are ready to take up the sport, this should be the easiest one on the list.

9. Play more golf.
Seriously, have you ever heard anyone say they want to play less golf? We all know, the more you play the better you play. Even if just 9 holes, the key to just get out there!

10. Make more putts. No more 3-putting or leaving it short - the short game it where we lose all our strokes!


Let's hear it. What's your 2013 New Year's Golf Resolution?

Happy New Year everyone!

Take care of the golf balls first, the rest is just sand!

A teacher's life lesson using a jar of golf balls.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The coffee just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a cup of coffee with a friend.

Fore Barrow Challenge: Team Blackwelder

{Mallory & Myra Blackwelder, LPGA }
This weekend, I had the privilege of playing in the Fore Barrow Challenge benefiting the Barrow Neurological Institute. This unique event paired one retired LPGA Tour player with a current tour player in a two-person team event.

The field of players for this event included multiple Hall of Famers, the current LPGA Player of the Year, Stacy Lewis, and the current U.S. Solheim Cup Captain, Meg Mallon.

My partner was my mom, Myra Blackwelder, who was the LPGA Rookie of the Year in 1980. We are the first ever mother-daughter combination to have had LPGA status.

Playing in this event with her was such a special experience that we will both remember forever. We had never played as a team before, other than when I played for her in college. But having her play as well was much different than just coaching me.

 Because she has been busy teaching and coaching since her retirement, she hadn’t played a tournament before this weekend in about six years. Needless to say she was a little nervous on the first hole, but she played great!

The first round was a Chapman alternate shot format, which meant we both hit a tee shot, then picked the best one and played alternate shot in from there. Alternate shot is a difficult format because your shot is going to determine if your partner is in good shape for the next shot. We shot three-under in the alternate shot format, and then shot six-under on Sunday playing our own best ball. We finished tied for 8th in the event and had a great time.

My favorite part of the event was seeing how good the retired LPGA players still are. I played a few holes of the practice round with JoAnne Carner, who is 73 years old. She still hits it great and is so much fun to watch. These women have accomplished so much and truly paved the way for my generation to be able to follow our dreams. I am so appreciative of their hard work and all they’ve done for women’s golf, and I can’t wait for the event next year!


The Fore Barrow Challenge is hosted by Tina Tombs, a Senior LPGA TOUR Pro. Learn more about this event:
