You Gotta Have Balls to Relieve Christmas Season Stress

Golf balls that is. What did you think I meant? Come on now, this is Christmas, get your mind out of the gutter.

Turns out a good way to help relieve stress is to take a couple golf balls (I hear Pro V1X's work best-just kidding) and roll them on the floor with the souls of your feet. It's like getting a foot massage and who couldn't use one of those.

I'm feeling better just thinking about it!

John Daly Goes To Analysis

Well kind of.

He doesn't get analized but his swing does by Ken Brown, a BBC Golf commentator (although I'm sure John's been through some kind of pyschoanalysis himself at one time or another). Article has a good little animation of his swing too. You can read about it here.

This is a Recent Conversation I Had With a Caddie

Me: (after a particularly bad round of golf) "You know, you must be the worst caddie who ever carried a bag"

Caddie: "Impossible, it would be too much a coincidence!"

Have You Checked Your Golf Engine Lately?

When most people talk about their drivers they talk about the head, whether it's titanium or steel or how big it is or even the color but I rarely if ever here anyone talk about the shaft. The shaft is the "engine" that drives the club. It's just as important as the head but people don't realize it or understand it.

Well here's an article that might help clear some things up for you.

Who Was The Oldest and Youngest To Win The British Open?

Answer: Tom Morris did the feat within two years.

Huh, what's that, impossible you say. How can one person be the oldest and youngest within two years? Did I say it was one person, grasshopper? "Old" Tom Morris, Sr did it in 1867 at the age of 46 and "Young" Tom Morris Jr won the Open the following year at the ripe old age of 17.

I bet they did well at Father-Son tournaments.
