Another month has come and gone here at One Bearded Golfer, and yet another round of poll question results are in.  The March Question of the Month asked what do you practice to improve your golf game?

The Confidence Conundrum – From the Range to the 1st Tee

Wednesday was a great day on the practice range.  Everything clicked and my swing found its slot. My legs were strong and my arms and wrists were relaxed. My four golf lessons culled together and culminated to produce a tension-free, repeating golf swing. I wanted to hit every club in my bag, because even the 3-iron…

Robert Trent Jones Course, Palmetto Dunes, Hilton Head Island, SC

My round on the Robert Trent Jones (“RTJ”) Course at Palmetto Dunes made me wish I’d had two weeks of vacation to spend on Hilton Head instead of just one.  No, not because the course was that spectacular, though it was great.  It absolutely was a beautiful course in pristine condition for being so early in…

The Third Lesson – Loosen Up and Cock the Wrist

I actually took my third golf lesson before leaving for Hilton Head, but completing my workload before bailing out-of-town prevented me from getting a column about it posted. The third lesson built upon the first two of course, and luckily didn’t leave me completely helpless once I made it to the golf courses down South.…

Surviving the Country Club of Hilton Head

Admittedly, being the course that follows getting to play Harbour Town as the only golfer on the course is a tall ask and a bit unfair.  Nonetheless, I was really looking forward to playing Country Club of Hilton Head (“CCHH”). That was until the weather report came true.  It was 41 degrees and raining when…

An Unforgettable Day at Harbour Town Golf Links, Hilton Head Island, SC

On this fourth trip to Hilton Head Island, I finally played Harbour Town Golf Links. Since The Wife and I began planning this year’s trip last fall, I looked forward to playing the epochal Sea Pines plantation course and crossing it off the Golf Bucket List.  It is a course every golfer has heard of,…

Great Fun Under Grey Skies: Golden Bear Golf Club at Indigo Run, Hilton Head, SC

Day two of this year’s Hilton Head experience was vastly different from Day One, as the temperature plummeted overnight, producing a high temperature Tuesday only in the low 40’s.   The polar vortex had picked up our scent as we’d fled Kentucky, and followed us to the Lowcountry. Undeterred by the elements, The Wife dropped…

Palmetto Hall – Arthur Hills Course, Hilton Head Island, SC

After an extended winter of miserable weather in Central Kentucky, the Wife and I finally escaped to warm, friendly Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for a much needed vacation.  We were driving south as four to six inches of freezing rain and snow were falling in Lexington.  I could barely get sleep in our beautiful…

March Question of the Month – What do you practice?

Last month, Brian over at All About Golf posed a thought-provoking column about what and how to practice to improve your golf game.  He concluded the post by asking readers whether they focus on developing their strengths or fixing their weaknesses on the golf course. I know that if I truly want to improve, it…

Results of February Question of the Month – Golf Cold Tolerance

The results are in for February’s Question of the Month: What is your cold tolerance for golf?  The people have spoken and the readers of this blog are decidedly a hearty group of brave souls and golf addicted fiends. Or, they all can’t stand their wives (or husbands) and have to hide on the links. …
