Santa Fe Trail golf in New Mexico, Kellie Stenzel's tee placement tip, and LPGA's Ochoa, Lincicome and Pressel test Annika Sorenstam

New Mexico may not get much attention as a golf state, but it probably should. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to Derek Gutierrez, head professional of Twin Warriors Golf Club, about great golf in New Mexico.
“In the last five to seven years, better facilities and golf courses are being built, and we’re starting to garner some attention,” Gutierrez says. “We have what’s called Golf on the Santa Fe Trail, which is eight courses along the Santa Fe Trail corridor, upper end, daily-fee resort golf courses.”
Pay much attention to tee placement? You should, according to PGA Professional and author Kellie Stenzel, who recently wrote an article on using the tee box to your advantage for lower scores at GolfInstruction.com.
“I think a lot of times people approach a tee box, grab their ball and tee and plop their golf ball down anywhere,” Stenzel says. But “I think there are a lot of things that can be considered to lower your score without even hitting a better shot.”
Plus, WorldGolf.com’s William K. Wolfrum talks about the future of Annika Sorenstam, who will miss at least a month of LPGA Tour action with a herniated and ruptured disk in her back.
“She’s definitely at the midpoint of the second act of her career because, right now, as far as golf goes, pretty much everything is beginning to get stacked against her,” Wolfrum says. “So she’s coming to a stage in her career where she’s content with what she’s doing off the course, and it’ll take something really special for her to make a comeback and eventually become a big player on the LPGA, winning majors. And that’s because … the other younger guns have really come in, and now you have a group that can win: Lorena Ochoa, Brittany Lincicome, Morgan Pressel.”
