The EurAsia Cup joins the biannual events on the Tour after the inaugural event, that looked like a sure fire victory for Europe turned into a nail biting finale with the match resting on the final of the hole of the final group to delivering a draw.

After a poor showing in the Thursday 4 ball event, where Asian went down in all 5 games, and even after a comeback on the Friday they were still trailing by 4 points going into the final days singles and Europe needing just 3.5 points for a win, the Asian players pulled their games together to deliver a thrilling final days golf.

The quality of play from the Asian team pretty much over powered the Europeans and as the games moved around the course an Asian victory looked a distinct possibility, however stoic play from Europe kept the outright victory at bay and nerve wracking putts helped hold the charge back and deliver a draw.

Possibly a fitting result for the first time the event has been run and with strong support it looks like this event has established itself on the golfing calendar.

Play Golf to Learn Golf

Play Golf to Learn Golf by Michael Hebron and interesting alternative view on how we can learn to play golf, it is not a quick fix book but more of an interesting alternative view and philosophy on learning and playing golf

I have just finished reading this interesting view as to how we, keen golfers, could learn to play and improve at golf.

The theme of the book is that if we think about golf as a game as long as we know the fundamentals then we should do what did as children and go and play and enjoy the learning experience of this crazy game called golf that we all love and hate.

We are different build, co-ordination, strength etc. and as such trying to copy a top professionals model swing may never be possible, take John Daly for example a great golfer but what an individual swing, it’s not say that we cannot take on board the fundamentals, but we should keep in mind that we need to play the game that suits each of us individually.

However there is a ring of truth in some of the points that are made, we were never coached how to play tag, hide and seek etc.  We just got to understand the fundamentals and then we went out and played the game learning from our experiences each and every time we play.

In the game of football we are shown the fundamental, how to dribble the ball, how to kick it straight, with a draw or a fade and then we went out and played and tried all of these options.

Yes we were frustrated when we got tagged too soon, but we soon learned to use other people to block us and stay away from the person trying to tag us; when we found too soon in hide and seek we worked out better places to hide and each time we played we learnt and got better.

That is not to say that we do not need to understand the fundamentals of the golf swing, holding the club, rotating round back and forward and hitting the ball (a little simplified but I am sure that we all get the gist of the process) and then seeing what works and what does not work, but we should not get frustrated and despondent when we miss hit a ball, but just take from that what we did for that shot did not suit us and go ahead and try again, almost a little happy go lucky.

I recently played with a lady who had never had a lesson, was not a member of a club and had only been playing for three months.  She hit a few bad shots, but when she relaxed she could easily drive the ball 150 yards and with a beautiful gentle draw, she learnt from every bad shot and never did two in row and almost shrieked with joy when she hit that easy perfect shot, she was playing golf to learn golf and was loving every minute of her round; an example to all of us.

The book, for a few pounds, is well worth a quick read and you may be surprised by the simple and effective points it makes, click on our link to buy or backorder the book and see for yourself.

Bionic Golf Glove - Ladies (Breast Cancer Awareness) Pink LH Small

The glove with the backing of science Designed by a leading orthopedic hand surgeon, Bionic technology is totally unique in the marketplace. There is nothing like it. The difference is found in the design based on the anatomy of the hand and the science of ergonomics. Anatomical Relief Pad System The anatomy: The hand has natural peaks and valleys determined by the bones in the hand. The high points of the bone rub against tools and equipment and cause blisters, calluses and hand fatigue. The ergonomic solution: Strategically-placed pads on the glove eliminate the peaks and valleys and even the surface of the hand. The advantage: Bionic improves grip strength, without the need to grip harder, and reduces hand fatigue. Plus, friction causing blisters and calluses is virtually eliminated. Get a grip on your golf game and enjoy longer distance and greater accuracy. Anatomical relief pads help prevent the clubface from twisting at the moment of contact and increase swing speed. Natural dexterity and cool, dry hands Motion zones over the knuckles and web zones between the fingers promote natural movement and help hands “breathe.” Second skin comfort The combination of the pre-rotated finger design and top-grade cabretta leather helps the glove feel and fit like second skin. Long-lasting durability Bionic lasts up to four times longer than conventional golf gloves!Anatomical relief pads to prevent the clubface from twisting at the moment of contact
