Playing Golf With Your Higher Conscious

Playing golf with higher conscious

The mental side of golf can sure feel like a mind warp sometimes. One day you’re in the zone and think you have FINALLY figured it out. At that moment you know you are never going to let yourself slip out of the zone ever again. Then the next day your mind seems to be your own worst enemy. Ugh. We’ve all been there.

My belief is that being in the zone (or not) comes down to a battle between the primitive part of our brain and our higher levels of consciousness…

Miura KM-006 Putter Review

Miura KM-006 LH putter

Miura Golf makes writing equipment reviews a lot of fun.  When I get a Miura club in my hands, the quality craftsmanship is immediately apparent, and it is exciting to convey that feeling to the world. Testing the KM-006 left-handed putter was no exception. As you’ve probably noticed from my other reviews on Miura Golf products, I have had a lot…

Olympic Golf already feels like a winner


I’ll be honest, I was skeptical about golf in the Olympics. I wasn’t always sure what to think about it, or how it would go over. When marquee players were lining up to announce they wouldn’t be participating, I had mixed emotions from disappointment to complete understanding to not really caring that much. Unlike The Masters or the Ryder Cup, Olympic Golf wasn’t circled on my calendar this year.
