Take Part in an Apprentice Golf System for $1

There's a new way of learning golf! Bobby Eldridge at Purepoint Golf has spent the last few months designing a program that allows him to coach students personally online. He's looking for a few "testers" for the program. It's a really great program, and it's revolutionary for golf instruction. The first month is only $1.00 so you can make an informed decision to see if the program is right for you You can check it out here.

Emirates Golf Club Par 3

So I played at the par 3 on Friday night and hit some good shots. I think it is the longest par 3 in Dubai and can give you a good variety of shorter shots to play to practice your short game. It's the course where the pros play the challenge match prior to the Dubai Desert Classic so plenty of history even on this short course!

Phil Mickelson Wins The Masters

Well done to Phil Mickleson for winning his 3rd Masters trophy. He won by 3 clear shots from Lee Westwood and had a great 4th day round. Bit of a shame for Lee Westwood as I was rooting for him and Tiger Woods crashed a bit on the last day but still did well as he hasn't played competitively for 5 months.

Day 1 at The Masters

So I'm pleased to see that Tom Watson is up there with the leaders as well as Lee Westwood with Tiger Woods only 2 strokes behind the leader Fred Couples. By the sounds of it you wouldn't have believed that Tiger had been away, hitting a couple of eagles on the par 5 8th and 15th. This was his best finish for a first round too, previously he has won it by hitting a 70 on the first day, this time he hit a 68.

Louis Oosthuizen wins the Masters Par 3 Tournament

So South African Louis Oosthuizen won the par 3 tournament at Augusta yesterday. Hopefully he doesn't believe in the jinx that some people believe means that if you win the par 3 you won't win the Masters!


Meanwhile we all wait with baited breath to see what Tiger Woods can do when he tees off in just over 6 hours time...

The Masters is Almost Here!

So this week is the build up to the Masters which starts on Thursday. On Wednesday there is the par 3 tournament which has its 50th anniversary this year and is a big pull for the crowds who get to see their favourite players relaxed and chatty. If ever you want to get pictures and autographs of the players then go to the pro-am and par 3 tournaments that precede major events. Everyone of course is wondering how Tiger Woods is going to play after his time off...
