Lee Westwood shares a brilliant and obvious tip to help hone in your irons

Published

on

Ahead of the upcoming Ryder Cup matches, Lee Westwood took to social media to share a helpful tip on honing in your irons.

In the Twitter video, Westwood explains that he writes his stock yardages on the actual club of each of his irons. The Englishman shows the “164” written in black marker on the back of his 8-iron to the camera and then proceeds to flush one 163 yards.

Not bad.

This may seem like an incredibly obvious tip, but having the visual reminder has done wonders for the 46-year-old, who finished runner-up at the Players Championship this spring.

Westwood was eliminated from the FedEx Cup Playoffs at last week’s BMW Championship, but he is currently qualified for the European Ryder Cup team.

    He’s done this for years as far as I know. Still has to calibrate for each week, but they give a good baseline.

    For 60 years, the only Iron I need to remember stock yardage on is my 7 iron. If I know that one, the rest are easy to figure.

Paul Casey’s caddie John McLaren to take break due to mental health reasons

Published

on

As first reported by the PGA Tour’s Ben Everill,Paul Casey’s caddie, John McLaren is taking an indefinite mental health break from the game of golf.

The 55-year old long time caddie has been traveling across the world with Luke Donald, Tony Johnstone and Paul Casey over the course of the past 31 years.

The last 18 months have been particularly difficult for McLaren who has had a hard time constantly traveling to many different countries during the COVID-19 pandemic:

“The accumulation of the last 18 months of travel, the testing, the uncertainty has taken its toll, not only on me, but how I am at home with my family,” he told PGATour.com. “And once that starts to have an impact on my young children and my wife, whom I very much love, then the questions start to arise about the sacrifices relative to what needs to be gained.”

Paul Casey expressed approval of McLaren’s decision, acknowledging the bravery it takes to speak out about those struggling with mental health.

He also emphasized that this isn’t a retirement, and he expects “Johnny Long Socks” to be back on his bag at some point in the future.

Tony Finau gives courtside golf lesson to Dwyane Wade at Utah Jazz game

Published

on

If last night is anything to go by, then it looks like Tony Finau has taken up coaching golf in the off-season.

While attending the Utah Jazz opening game on Wednesday night, Finau was spotted sitting courtside with future hall-of-famer Dwyane Wade.

During the game, the two stars of their respective sports took a break from the on court action to discuss some mechanics of the golf swing. Finau was seen giving D-Wade some advice on how to grip the golf club and employ proper wrist action through impact .

I don’t expect to see Wade on the PGA Tour anytime soon, but getting golf advice from the best golfer to come out of the state of Utah certainly won’t hurt his handicap.
