Donald Trump Becomes the Top Golfer

Donald Trump Becomes the Top Golfer

Since we have had some time to process the fact that Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States, it is time to consider the impact his presidency could have on golf. President-elect Trump made millions on real estate transactions from his ability to see possibilities others could not. I hope he can bring that same insight to his term or terms in office. He owns several high-profile golf properties, including Trump Doral in Miami Florida, which […]

Ian Poulter’s Golf Tip of the Week

Ian Poulter's Golf Tip of the Week

After you hit an exceptionally poor shot, do not take a swing at your golf bag. Last week during the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Ian Poulter posted this picture on Twitter as evidence of what can happen, when you hit your golf bag, with your club, after an especially disturbing shot. Two innocent cell phones were destroyed and someone is going to have to replace them.   Ian Poulter ‏@IanJamesPoulter  Nov 10 When a player decides to attack a tour bag… Oooppssss […]

A Few Unruly Fans Tarnished the Ryder Cup

A Few Unruly Fans Tarnished the Ryder Cup

One of the more unfortunate aspects of the Ryder Cup was the inability of a few fans to act in an appropriate manner. The Europeans were guests of the American Ryder Cup Team, and as such, should have been treated with the up-most respect by every fan. Golf is a game that prides itself in its sportsmanship and fair play. The competitors respect each other and demonstrated tremendous class, whether winning or losing a match. It is indeed unfortunate that […]

Ryder Cup Proves, Golf is NOT DEAD!!

Ryder Cup Proves, Golf is NOT DEAD!!

This week at the 41st Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club, it is clear that the reports of golf’s demise are grossly over estimated. Tuesday, the day that both the U.S. and European teams arrived in Chaska, Minnesota and saw the course for the first time, 25,000 fans showed up for a brief glimpse of the players. Over 45,000 fans walked the course and cheered on the teams on Wednesday, the second day of practice. Thursday, the weather was […]

The Mistake Jason Day Didn’t Make

The Mistake Jason Day Didn’t Make

Thanks to Golf Equipment expert, Ed Travis for this submission. Jason Day is the world’s number one ranked golfer, though Dustin Johnson with his superlative play this summer is gaining on him. Whether or not Day remains at No. 1 depends on the outcome of the Tour Championship at East Lake Country Club in two weeks. However, that is not the point of this column. The point is to congratulate Day for not making the same mistake numerous other stars […]

Where are the Dominant American Women Golfers?

Where are the Dominant American Women Golfers?

Last year the main story line on the LPGA Tour was the number of young players dominating women’s golf. This season those young women are one year older and with only a handful of events remaining on the 2016 schedule, only two American women have won titles on the LPGA Tour this season. In addition, no American Woman medaled at the Rio Olympics. Lexi Thompson won in Thailand, way back in February and Brittany Lang won the U.S. Women’s Open […]

Pete Cowen Teaches “The Process”

We read and hear a lot about “The Process,” but what is it and why is it important? I happened to watch a video of esteemed English Golf Coach, Pete Cowen talking about his teaching philosophy. Who is Pete Cowen, you ask? Well he happens to have coached some of the best golfers from Europe and around the world. With his win at Royal Troon last week, Henrik Stenson joined a distinguished list of Cowen pupils to have won a […]

About Fred Altvater:

I admit it – I am a golfaholic, as well as a teaching professional. I have enjoyed playing the grand game of golf for over 40 years. In addition to playing, I find teaching golf very rewarding – I love to see students when they finally hit that great shot, make the long put, chip in or kill that long drive. - See more at: Toledo Ohio Golf Lessons - About Fred
