4 Shots Every Golfer Needs

What pops into your mind when I say GOLF SHOTS?

And hey, I ain't talkin' about those tequila shots you had last weekend. 🥃😉

Instead, today, we're diving into the magic world of the DRAW, FADE, LOW, and HIGH shots. Y'know, the fun stuff!

Remember when Phil Mickelson, that legend who’s got more than 40 PGA tour wins under his belt, once said... well, here’s a little something to refresh your memory.

But let's slice deeper into those shots:

📌 HEIGHT
How high? Or how low? It's all about assessing your surroundings. Yes, the wind plays its part, and so does the roll you want your shot to have.

But remember, while theory sounds easy, practice is a whole different beast.

💡 Tip: That breeze you feel? Don’t just default to a low shot. A good wind can turn your drive into a jet and give you an extra 20-30 yards, if you read and play it right. And I'm not talking about tornado weather here. 😂 Check out this hilarious video for proof.

📌 DIRECTION
DRAW and FADE shots are the tricksters of the group. A tiny mistake and bam, you're in the woods. Key here? Understand the difference between your Swing Path and Club Swing. Trying to draw? Stick with your usual swing path and just nudge your club to the right. It's all in the feet and wrists, folks.

💡 Tip: If you're scratching your head, check out Danny Maude’s tutorial. He's got the juice on this.

Let's not forget LOW and HIGH shots. It's all about the underbelly of the ball and the might you pack in your swing. Find that golden middle ground - not too high, not too low. Because, as with everything in life, balance is 🔑.

Alright, golf pals. That’s your Daly dose of golf wisdom. Remember to keep practicing, keep swinging, and always... find your BALANCE.

LIV Strikes Back After Losing Bid For World Ranking Points

Picture this: executives of two golfing titans clashing, top players throwing shade, and well... a lot of banter that feels eerily like the children of billionaires arguing over their inheritances.

But hey, it’s entertaining, and I've got my snacks ready!

Here's the latest scoop:
Last week, LIV Golf got handed the short end of the stick – denied the chance to earn world ranking points. A blow for players dreaming of those world titles and access to international tournaments.

Now, why the cold shoulder? Apparently, LIV Golf's unique format isn’t "compatible" with the ranking system.

Or as Peter Dawson told the Associated Press, they aren’t "playing in a format where they can be ranked equitably."

But let’s face it – LIV's format? That’s some refreshing, viewer-friendly golf.

However, the real elephant in the room? LIV Golf's backing by the Saudi Arabian government. Politics and golf, an odd cocktail, but here we are.

Yet, LIV Golf ain’t backing down. They're arguing: How's it a "World Ranking" without the world's top players? Valid point, considering golf giants like Brooks Koepka, Taylor Gooch, Cameron Smith, and Dustin Johnson have pitched their tents with LIV.

It feels like the aftermath of the Marvel movies post-Endgame:

But the big question isn't just for the elites of golf.

It's for us, the audience, the golf lovers: Do we want to see LIV's top-tier players competing on the global stage?
