Instruction


  • Crush It!

    Hit bigger drives with the help of the game's longest drivers


    Hitting big drives is arguably the most satisfying, and fun, part of golf. We all want to do it more often but simply don’t know the best method for harnessing our full distance potential. In the following pages, you’ll find tips and tricks from 13 RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship competitors, all of whom know a thing or two about power. Read carefully and get ready to go deep.
     

  • Educate Your Hands

    Better Iron Play Is Within Your Grasp


    Most of the time when you read golf instruction pertaining to the hands, it has to do with how you grip the club. 

  • How To Avoid The Blow Up Round

    Fix your game, mid-round and avoid a big number


    It probably has happened to all of you at one time or another. You're in the middle of an otherwise solid round of golf when suddenly it all heads south, and no matter what you try, nothing can get your game back on track. It's a frustrating experience, and one that’s sometimes made worse by trying to "right the ship."

  • PROspectives: Ryan Moore

    Milk The Cow


    For a long time I’ve been doing a drill that I like to call “Milking the Cow.” From the photos, you probably can guess where it got its name. Why is it important to “milk the cow” in your swing? Because it creates a 90° angle between your left arm and your club shaft and, in golf, that’s what we call “lag.”

Equipment

    The latest in golf equipment, instruction, training aids, apparel & more


  • Showcase: The Anti-Irons

    The latest game-improvement offerings


    Irons today are nothing like they were just a few years ago. That’s a good thing because iron technology hasn’t exactly had such an easy time keeping up with the meteoric rise in driver, wood and putter designs. However, the latest leaps in iron technology have been huge, with numerous models featuring more game improving technology than we’ve ever seen.

Travel


  • 3 days in Myrtle Beach

    Save money this spring on the Grand Strand


    It’d be hard to find a more competitively priced golf destination than Myrtle Beach. Long considered the affordable alternative to higher-end golf hot spots, it’s poised to attract budget-conscious golfers and a new crop of vacationers during the current economic downturn.

  • Focus On: Eagle Mountain

    Hurry, this place won't be such a hidden gem for long


    Nestled in the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, Eagle Mountain Golf Club and the Inn at Eagle Mountain offer an intimate getaway just eight miles from downtown Scottsdale. Smaller in size than other Phoenix-area resorts (Eagle Mountain is more of a retreat than a resort), its 42 “mini suites” are terraced onto a hillside and offer postcard views of the golf course and valley far below.
