Women in Business

    I’ve spent the past week trying not to write this. I also tried not to write the new Dean at The Tuck School, my b-school alma mater. I failed on both front — I wrote the letter and I am typing away on this post. So what’s stuck in my craw? Last weekend […]

Rules Can be Fun!

This is straight from the latest issue of Golf Digest — I laughed when I read it, so thought I would share: “Decision 23/6.5 If you encounter a snake during your round — and are brave enough to inspect it up close — remember this distinction:  A snake that’s alive is considered an outside agency, […]

The Masters — who ya got?

Me, I’ll take Tiger Woods. Yup, you read that right. I’ll take Tiger. Do I really think he can win? Can he overcome his myriad physical issues AND mental challenges? Get over the chipping yips (Tiger Woods has the yips????)? We shall see, but what a story that would be. I have never been a […]

Randall’s Island Golf Center has been selected as a Golf Channel Academy!! What an honor, and what exciting news for us.  The Golf Channel has decided to get into the “bricks and mortar” business of golf instruction, and they have scoured the country to identify facilities to launch as the inaugural Golf Channel Academies. What […]

So I bot a SLDR

And became a believer.  I have always been skeptical about the concept of a moveable weight in a driver for the average golfer.  But the Taylor Made SLDR has made it SO easy to move the weight, that I am starting to believe it just might be useful for the average player.   My historical […]

Tech for the Swing

This is the coolest, simplest device to help you use your cellphone to shoot your own swing.  You just stick your Cam Caddy into the ground behind you, and set it to shoot your swing.  A couple of tips when you videotape your golf swing: Whether shooting face-on, or down-the-line, put the camera HAND HIGH […]

Your P.T. Can be Your Best Friend

I know a thing or two about physical therapy, and about physical therapists, having had a  serious sports injury or two.  Torn ACL and ruptured Achilles tendon, among them.  There have been times when my P.T. has been my best friend, because post-surgery due to lower leg injuries, it has been my P.T. who has […]

It’s About the Grip

Golf instructors are obsessed with the grip. And with good reason. The grip is a basic building block to a golf swing, and much like when you are building a house, the foundation needs to be correct and strong, or whatever you put on top of it will ultimately crumble. The most common challenge golfers […]

How can taking golf swings with eyes closed improve your focus?

I was out at Montauk Downs Golf Course recently hitting a few balls in bitter cold conditions, mostly for chuckles.  A friend snapped this picture of me, swinging in a parka where the jacket kept blocking my vision, and it reminded me of how valuable it is for me to occasionally practice with my eyes […]

Early wrist hinge vs. width in golf — can you have both?

I was working with a student the other day (cold weather golf!!!!), and found myself having a very familiar discussion with him.  Most amateur golfers have heard of the concept of “early wrist hinge” or “early wrist set,” but struggle with the execution.  Too often, I see golfers hinge right out of the address position, […]

If you haven’t already guessed, this list should be sung to the Twelve […]

Cold Weather Golf

Just to be clear: I am a warm weather golfer. First choice: playing golf when temps are in the 70′s. Second choice: 80′s or 60′s. If arm-twisted: 50′s. Anything warmer and I am in the pool. Anything colder and I light a fire. Having said that, I live in the northeast and I have friends […]

Why is PGA Village a great golf and business destination?

Leslie Andrews Golf has chosen PGA Village in Port St. Lucie, Florida, as the official “host” for our seventh annual group golf instruction and play getaways. Why did we choose this venue? Aside from the obvious warm weather implications and terrific location (short ride to the Florida Palm beaches), PGA Village has been ranked among the “75 […]

Is a Christmas golf driver good for your relationship?

Question:  I want to give my husband a new driver for Christmas. What should I look for? Answer:  Not a driver. A set of new golf clubs may be on almost every golfer’s holiday wish list but trying to buy a driver for someone is like trying to buy shoes for someone, without having them with […]

Are you a woman who uses golf as a business strategy?

With all the statistics lately showing that the number of women CEO’s and women on boards of directors is not increasing, it seems to me that women need some new strategies and playing golf for business has got to be one of them. According to The White House Project Report: Benchmarking Women’s Leadership, “while women may […]

Practice vs. warm up

I always start a lesson by asking students, “did you get a chance to practice this week?”  Almost always, the answer is either “no,” or “yeah, I hit a bucket of balls before I played last weekend.” Hitting a bucket of balls before you play, while helpful, does not qualify as practice, in my opinion.  […]

Women, Golf & Biz – How to get the Invite?

Women ask me all the time, “how do I get invited to corporate outings?”  Believe me – the people who run these events are dying to have women participate.  You need to advertise that that you play the game.  Literally. Here’s how.  Next time you’re on the course wearing your favorite outfit, take a picture […]

WOMEN, GOLF & BIZ:  PLAYING FROM THE REDS So, you’ve finally secured a foursome with your boss and an important client.  You’ve got the outfit, the shoes, the clubs, even some semblance of a golf swing.  You get out on the course and discover… that the forward tees are set 50+ yards in front of […]

Swing Tips

Setup Reminder:  Chipping So much of the short game is about setup technique.  If the setup positions don’t make sense to you, just memorize them, particularly the correct ball position.  Eventually, it will make perfect sense and become intuitive.  Setup matters.  A lot. Setting up for chipping requires three adjustments to our normal setup.  1)  […]

Warm – Up

Spring Cleanup.  No, I’m not talking about raking the leaves, or putting down new cedar mulch.  GOLF Spring Cleanup:  buy a new glove, re-spike your shoes and re-grip your clubs.  Whether you need it or not. You think this is no big deal, but I’m here to tell you, it’s a big deal.  Physically and […]
