Recently, Loren Roberts was asked if there was any simple advice you can give to the average golfer Golfer to improve his putting?

Loren replied, “Quit worrying about the line and try to roll it up near the hole. Try to work on your speed rather than direction.”

Most players get concerned about the line and lose focus of the speed. Rarely will a player miss a put 10 feet right or left BUT they WILL leave it 10 feet short of long.

Once you have picked out the line of the putt put all of your energies into getting the right pace and you’ll not only leave yourself shorter second putts but you’ll make a lot more of those first putts.

Thanksgiving Proclamation

Abe Lincoln

Read Abe Lincoln’s proclamation on Thanksgiving - October 3, 1863.
Thanksgiving Proclamation

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

We’d like to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. Be sure to spend time with your family and friends and give thanks to our Lord and Savior for all of the wonderful blessings that are bestowed upon us daily.
