So I have been asked a number of times lately what it was like to play professional golf and why I ended up in the steel business and as a golf instructor. Both were easy answers, it’s the follow up question I am having a hard time with: Why not try it again?  People hear the passion and desire in my voice and always ask why not follow your dream, what’s stopping you? That one was much tougher to answer, but I tried. I offered the following: I am 40 - oops just celebrated 43 years - with one major back surgery and one minor knee surgery. I have a full time job and a second one as a hobby...2 kids, a wife, and a dog with little time to train. To which I get in return: excuses, excuses. Then they go on about this athlete or that athlete that has overcome amazing obstacles. If that’s not enough, they have countless stories of accomplishments both in life and in business overcoming...

One of the more frequent questions I get is from golfers who have been working on their swings diligently but just can't seem to make any progress. They have tried different drills, different clubs and have even switched instructors several times hoping one of them can give them that one magic tip or move to help them get over the hump. What many fail to realize is that the problem may not be the instructor, your clubs or the drills. It may simply be that you are physically unable to perform the movement. Let me explain. Most if not all of us lack the time and ability to workout, stretch and keep our body's in tip top golf shape. We sit a computers for long periods of time, we have injuries, some recent some from a long time ago. We have lost flexibility as well. With that being said we can only ask our bodies to do so much before it makes compensations or it simply prevents us from making the swing we think we are capable of making.

Golf For All Abilities: An interview with Scott Millman Scot MillmanWhen you think of Golf you immediately picture successful businessmen or retirees spending a peaceful summer day playing a few rounds of golf and relaxing with friends. When it comes to golf Scot Millman had something else in mind.

Scott is a certified golf teacher and enjoys teaching golf to individuals of all ages but in golf he saw an opportunity to make a big impact on the lives of others. We asked Scott a few questions about what he is up to:

The exact definition of Balance is an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady. Personally I think this is one of the most over looked swing flaws for most players. If its one thing we can see week in and week out on tour is that the vast majority if not all tour players are balanced from start to finish.

Think of it this way, the club is a weight that you are swinging very fast away from a fairly fixed center. That weight by the laws of physics will want to pull away from the center or in this case you. If your body is not stable and balanced to start it will need to resist that pulling motion. If your sitting back on your heels at address the pull would be towards your toes and in order to resist that pulling the urge would be to pull back or standup.  If we started on the toes we would immediately resist the urge to be pulled forward . In order for you to have...

I am very happy and excited to announce that I am now the director of instruction at Play Golf 365 in West Bloomfield.

As an instructor I am always looking for ways to really help my students improve. I have long held the belief that one of the worst places to improve your game is on the driving range. Most people simply beat balls, raking one ball over after another with little attention to detail or a definitive goal. Even giving students drills I have noticed that they judge results based on ball flight. Ball flight seems to dictate success or failure and in many cases is totally incorrect.  The simulator at Play Golf 365 not only gives me the necessary video tools to make corrections it gives you the student the ability to focus on the task at hand and imporve more rapidly. It also gives me the ability to create almost any on course scenario that my mind can concieve. With over 85...
