Published: Monday, February 28, 2011 | 5:05 p.m.

Many prominent golf companies, players and PGA instructors regularly take to Twitter to talk about their equipment and other aspects of their game. Here is a round-up of some of the most interesting golf-related Twitter entries from the week of Feb. 21-27, featuring Lee Westwood, Karen Stupples, Hank Haney and more:

Hank Haney

@cincygolfpro "We spend so much time comparing our golf swing to others; be happy in your uniqueness and embrace it!" -- PGA Professional Melissa Yeazell

@HankDHaney   Kostis gets it right, McCord gets it, Chamblee gets it too but PK is best because his analysis isn't based solely on how he sees the swing

Peter Kostis
@peterjkostis   When the legs/hips under/late rotate, the clubhead over rotates. When the legs/hips rotate too much/soon, the clubhead under rotates.
