Most Golfers are Consistently Inconsistent

stinkygolfercrossing

Statistically, my average score has stayed pretty much the same over the past 20 years. Why? Because I’m consistently inconsistent. The problem of inconsistency afflicts nearly every golf hack out there and as a result, we don’t really improve our games much – at least not without a good amount of practice and/or lessons. My [...]

We Need Our Golf Trips

thWVMELIDI

Here at Golfstinks, it’s generally assumed that any special occasion is to be celebrated, at least partially, with a round of golf.  And this past weekend, the crew did it again.  This occasion was a milestone birthday…my 40th.  So some of the other stinky golfers pitched in and made a weekend out of it – golf [...]

Speed Up Your Round With Drag-Cart Golf

thF9BM6X15

There has been a couple of times now when we’ve shown you some pimped out golf carts.  Be it Mustangs and Hummers or rim sportin’ and system bumpin’ rides.  Most recently it was a few golf cart replicas of famous rides from TV.  But remember back when we were kids riding in golf carts?  What were we [...]

So Much For Growing Golf in China

Closed

You may have read about this a few weeks ago but if not, here’s a quick recap: Basically, the Chinese government has begun destroying new golf courses (some so new they haven’t even opened yet) to enforce a ban put in place to preserve water, land and curb pollution in the country. You can read [...]

Are You Missing Out By Playing Bargain Golf?

thQFI0FBIS

One of my favorite things about playing golf is the variety of the courses.  It’s not like other sports in that sense.  A football field is always 100 yards long, a baseball field (though the outfield dimensions can vary somewhat) is basically the same no matter where you play and a basketball court is like football [...]

POLL: Does Anyone Care About the FedEx Cup?

So The Barclays kicks off the PGA Tour “playoffs” next month. You know, the PGA Tour playoffs? Those four tournaments to decide the Tour Champion? The golf playoffs? No? Well, what if I said the FedEx Cup is next month? Oh! Now you’ve at least heard of that…Good, we’re making progress. Of course it really [...]

Book Review: Psych-Out Golf

product_thumbnail.php

Being that we’re not your average golf blog, we typically don’t review your average golf book. And nothing fits the atypical golf book mold better than Psych-Out Golf. They say golf is half mental. If that’s true, this book can help you in ways you could have never imagined! Written by a father/son team (Todd [...]

When A Golf Course Isn’t Used For Golf

th

Growing up, my hometown had three golf courses.  One was a pretty, but tough, eighteen hole course.  Another was an easier and inexpensive, but always well manicured, nine-hole course.  And last but not least, was a horribly maintained, bombed-out, mortar range of a nine-hole course which, I’m sure due to the low cost of greens [...]

GolfStinks is Celebrating Our Independence

golfcart july 4

The 4th of July is upon us and with that we must celebrate! Some of us will go to the beach, some will have cook-outs and some of us will really celebrate Independence Day by getting married (yes, as many of you are reading this, I will be bidding adieu to my own independence – [...]

POLL: Thoughts on Executive & Par 3 Courses

augustapar32

I don’t really play executive (or par 3) courses. In fact, the last time I played one, it was 2007. I’ve been pretty forthcoming in the past about these length-challenged courses (see HERE), but perhaps I’ve sold them a little short (pardon the pun). In these tough economic times and (perhaps more importantly) with slow [...]

Golf Stinks When Your Equipment Stinks

th9Y615RPZ

There once was a point when I thought the phrase “You get what you pay for” was true.  For a while, I thought just because something was more expensive, it must be better.  Well, all these years later, I now know better.  Sometimes the phrase does hold true.  However, it seems more often it doesn’t.  And [...]

Pimp My Golf Cart: TV Edition

Golfcart Flintstones

Yes, I’m pretty sure we’re well aware that pimpin’ ain’t easy. This is why we resort to another form of pimping (that of which is legal and…you know, it’s kind of funny to be discussing pimping and golf in the same post). Moving on, this installment is focused on those TV shows most of us [...]
