  • TEE TIME: Make sure the clubs fit
    Several years ago I decided to buy a new set of Mizuno MP-60 irons. Before I ordered them, I visited Club-Fit in Middletown to have my friend Dave Malthouse fit me for the clubs. After hitting several balls with different shafts, Dave asked what kind of shafts I had in my current set. “Dave, I’ve been playing stiffs for several years,” I replied.
  • TEE TIME: Q&A Rules Clarifications
    During last week’s All A Classic regional golf tournament at Lincoln Homestead State Park, a young golfer hit an errant shot and several people saw it land in a bush next to the fourth green. There’s no doubt that the ball went into the bush and never came out. As spectators and golfers delved into the bush to find the ball with no success, the question was posed, “We know the ball is in there, can he just take an unplayable lie and a penalty shot?” Fortunately, the ball was ultimately discovered, but how would you have handled the situation?
  • TEE TIME: Duncanson perseveres to win state
    The voices echo through the air as one golfer holler to another, “Hey Luke, did you find your ball?” When the answer comes back in the affirmative, there is a cheer and clapping among the group. Other golfers crowd around the putting green and watch as a participant putts from less than 10 feet from the cup and leaves it well short. Spectators sitting under a shade tree yell their approval.
  • TEE TIME: Get the ball that's right for you, not the pros
    Bridgestone Golf is running a series of golf ball commercials that are both extremely humorous and informative. In one of them, a customer walks into a golf shop and tells David Feherty that he wants to buy the pro line ball. As Fred Couples looks on, Feherty asks the gentleman if he has a swing speed of 118 miles per hour like Couples. The man looks confused when Feherty then questions the man’s talents, asking if he is a top tour pro like Matt Kuchar, who is dusting a trophy in the shop.
  • PHOTOS: Softball at the Park
    Softball returned to the Culvertown Park this year after a one-year hiatus with the Thursday night men’s league, which continues through Aug. 22. Culvertown Park also hosts a weekly co-ed adult kickball league on Tuesdays, and will host a kickball marathon tournament Friday and Saturday, with proceeds benefiting the Nelson County Lady Cardinals basketball program.
  • TEE TIME: Try a new course to test your skills
    I mentioned in an earlier column about the great friendships and camaraderie that one can find in this great game. While it is a lot of fun to spend time with your group at the local course, added enjoyment can come from travelling to a different venue to test your game. It doesn’t have to be across the state, to a resort, across the country or across the pond.
