A lot will be made of the extraordinary birdie putts Adam Scott holed, first at 18 and then at 10 in the playoff, to win the Masters. But Scottie wouldn’t have been in that position if he hadn’t driven the ball with such deft precision all week.

You have to feel for Robert Garrigus. To be so close, to have that first PGA Tour win so firm in your grasp as you stand on the 18th tee of the final round and not walk away with the trophy, he'll be thinking about the events of that hole for a long time to come, I'm sure.

Turn Away From Your Slice
One of the most important keys in fixing a slice permanently is to learn to swing the clubhead on an inside-to-out swing path through impact. In order to swing the club head into the golf ball from the inside of your target line, a full turn of the shoulders in the backswing is required.

Casting Recall: Stop the Power Loss
One of the most common errors that I see when giving lessons is the person who "casts" the club from the top to start the downswing. The shots that result are usually in two categories. First, there is the person who takes a divot that starts about a foot before getting to the ball.
