The GrunkleGuru

Grunkle is a slang term for the thick rough on a golf course that I have been using for many years. Given my penchant for inaccurate tee balls, I have become a bit of a guru out of the thick stuff, hence the name. This is a site for my random thoughts about sports (espeically golf) and life in general. While nothing special, it will hopefully offer a break from the daily drudgery for both you and me.

Tip of the Week - Get The Ball To The Hole

One of the biggest problems that most golfers have is leaving putts short of the hole. Here is a drill that will help you work on being more aggressive on the putting greens. It is also a great game to play with friends.


Start 10’ from the hole and roll a putt. If you miss it on the high side or long simply putt out from where the ball lies. However, if you miss low or short, then draw the ball back the length of your putter. The goal when practicing by yourself is to play nine ‘holes’ is 18 shots or less (2 putts per hole), but when you are playing an opponent the goal is to have a lower score over a set number of holes.

Keep practicing this drill until you manage to meet your set goal or beat your buddies.

This drill will help reinforce a more aggressive stroke because you want to make sure you hit the ball past the hole. This will at least give you a chance to make the putt.
Remember, never up, never in.
