Caddie Chronicles: The Rise of a PGA Star

The week I spent as a Caddie during the Nova Scotia Open is one of most amazing weeks of my career and personal life – A week I will never forget! Any chance I can get to be inside the ropes of a professional golf event I want to be there.

I first met Abraham Ancer at last year’s Tournament and was on the bag for him on Friday. He didn’t make the cut, but he did make a charge on the back 9. I saw that he was 39th on the money list this year. So I sent him a quick note on twitter congratulating him on his impressive play and asked if he was coming to Halifax again. He responded by asking me to be his caddie.   Read More >>>

Learn to Golf: For Runners

Follow these 6 Steps to become a Golfer this Summer

I am a golfer.

Earlier this year I had a great meeting with Stacy Chestnutt, Race Director for Sole Sisters Women’s Race. We share a similar passion to see women empower one another and encourage ladies and girls to become physically active. Stacy is a runner, a serious runner. I learned that day that Stacy has never swung a golf club in her life. Later, I was thinking about our meeting and thought to myself, If you can run 40 marathons, you can play golf! So I have decided to create this easy program so all runners can Learn to Golf this summer.   Read More >>>



Elementary School Students Take a Swing at Golf

The Bedford-Sackville Observer

“At this stage, we’re learning about hand-eye coordination, so it’s not really about all of the skills you need to swing a club. We just want them to make contact, it can be fun and easy for them. This isn’t a time to develop a Tiger Woods. We are really just focusing on the balance and movement.”   Read More >>>

Fall arrives this coming Saturday and like many golfers it is my favourite time to enjoy golf. If you are prepared you can enjoy the weather and your golf. Here are my tips on enjoying fall golf:
Dress in Layers – Be sure to have a jacket that will protect you from the wind but has enough stretch to allow you to swing. A warm stretch sweater, toque and a compression shirt will help keep you warm. Winter golf gloves will also help keep your hands warm
Club Up – Cooler temperatures mean the ball won’t go as far. Be sure to take an extra club and swing easy.
Play a softer ball – The softer ball will give you more feel around the greens helping you stop the ball faster.
Enjoy an adult beverage!

Testimonials

As a beginner golfer I can enjoy the game without intimidation or fear. Several scheduled tee times per week make it possible to pick and choose times and courses convenient to the golfer. It’s been a great summer of social golfing and of skill development. I look forward to next season.
