This is what happens when I get involved in spring cleaning. We found this Abe hat and my young son thought it would be pretty funny so ... anyway. I guess you can take this tip from Honest Abe. If I had to choose the one difference between a Tour pro or scratch player and the average golfer it would be "The Bow."

This weekend, watch a little golf on TV (or whatever you watch golf on these days). Notice the pro bending over when he or she addresses the ball. That tilt or bow, is about 30 degrees. Watch how long the pro keeps "the bow" throughout the swing. Now you try it.

Enjoy the game again.
