• Practice with a Purpose

    Posted on February 28, 2012 by Grant in Golf Fundamentals, Practice.

    How much time do you spend planning before you practice? When you go to the range, do you have a plan of exactly what you are going to work on, or do you just “wing it”? One of the main reasons I have been able to get better at golf,  is because of consistent, planned […]

  • Eternal Hope

    Posted on February 21, 2012 by Grant in My Journey.

    Yesterday, I heard the news that a boy was hit by a car and killed while riding his bike. This happened just a couple blocks from where I live. Please pray for this family during this tragic time. My heart goes out to them. Hearing this news so close to home is very sobering and […]

  • Working the Golf Ball

    Posted on February 14, 2012 by Grant in Golf Fundamentals, Swing.

    Did you know that the hardest shot to hit in golf is a straight shot? If you do not plan to work the ball either from left to right or right to left, you are putting yourself at a disadvantage even before you hit the shot. If you pick a target that is left of […]

  • The Beginning: My Road to the PGA Tour

    Posted on February 2, 2012 by Grant in My Journey.

    I am so thankful to be able to play golf as my career, and I am very grateful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,  who has allowed me to keep an eternal perspective through the good times and the tough times. My wife, Jeree, and I  moved to Arizona in September of 2007 so […]

  • Putt Freely

    Posted on January 31, 2012 by Grant in Golf Fundamentals, Putting, The Mental Game.

    I want to have an easy-going attitude when I putt, and a calm, calculated reaction even if the putt doesn’t go in. If I have been missing putts, the first thing I check is my attitude. Trying to post low tournament scores can lead to a build-up of stress and tension. On the putting green, […]

  • Phoenix Open Pre-Qualifier

    Posted on January 27, 2012 by Grant in My Journey, Tournament Recap.

    Just finished my qualifying round for the PGA Tour event here in Phoenix. I shot 1 under par, 70, at Lone Tree Golf Course in Chandler, AZ. Although 67 is probably the number that will get through, I am pleased with the chances I had for birdies coming down the stretch. I hit a lot […]

  • When the Going Gets Rough

    Posted on January 12, 2012 by Grant in My Journey.

    You are leading the tournament by one shot! On the 18th hole, you smash a drive down the middle of the fairway, and then hit a beautiful pitching wedge that hits the flag-stick only to spin back in the water.  In your mind, is it a setback or an opportunity? How do you define challenges […]

  • Solid Contact

    Posted on January 5, 2012 by Grant in Golf Fundamentals, Swing.

    Clank! Shank! Thud! Are you missing the amazing  sound of solid contact? In golf, nothing gives you confidence quite like a well struck shot. Does it sometimes seem like you will never hit the ball solid again, no matter how hard you try? Or, do you feel you have been hitting it so poorly that […]

  • Getting the Most Out of Your Round… and Life

    Posted on December 30, 2011 by Grant in My Journey.

      How many times have you hit a shot while worrying about your scores or results? I know that I constantly have to keep my worry in check on the golf course. The emotions and thoughts while hitting a putt  for triple bogey, or a tee shot with water right and O.B. left, should not […]
