Instructor Chuck Evans on taking your range game to the course, John Feinstein on "Tales from Q School," and Dennis Ithal of the National Amputee Golf Association
“Most people are scratch or better on the driving range, but they have a degree of difficulty taking it from the practice tee to the golf course,” Evans says.
Golf writer John Feinstein talks about his book on the PGA Tour’s qualifying process, “Tales from Q School: Inside Golf’s Fifth Major.”
“The players call it the fifth major, so that’s where I got that part of the title,” Feinstein says. “Virtually every player who’s come on the tour in the last 40 years has gone through Q School. And they all have stories about it: they all have funny stories, they all have sad stories.”
Dennis Ithal, tournament chairperson for the National Amputee Golf Association, discusses the challenge of learning to play golf with a disability.
“I’ve been an amputee for 30 years. When I started playing with one arm, it was no different than when my son picked up the first club when he was nine years old,” Ithal says. “I went out and probably shot a 140. So I practiced hitting with one hand and guess what? After 30 years, you get pretty good at it.”
