What is the going on with Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson? I have heard or read somewhere that they really hate each other.

Can you help me with my golf swing, particularly hitting the driver?

Golf Nut, my golf swing is making me crazy. I am very inconsistent hitting my driver. I hit my three wood great and feel really comfortable with it. I do pretty well with the irons. But with the driver….one drive may go great with a pretty little draw and the next will be wild or a big slice or hook. When I swing the driver, I feel like I am getting jammed and can’t bring it down to my side and swing through from the inside like I know that I should. Any helpful hints?

How to deal with golf handicap fudging?

My buddies and I love to play in local scramble golf tournaments. However, we are getting very frustrated with certain groups of golfers who show up for these tournaments and play under handicaps that everyone knows are incorrect, they are waaaaay too high. Almost every time, one of these foursomes wins, and usually one of the others take second. Is there a way to handle this?

Have you seen the new golf rule changes?

I read some of the recent changes to the rules of golf that take effect January 1. One in particular that I found amusing was the change to allow golfers to use measuring devices, such as GPS systems or rangefinders, in golf tournaments at the discretion of the tournament organizers. I’ve only seen these devices typically on golf carts at the upscale resorts.
