Golf is not a complicated sport when you really think about it. It’s been played the same way for hundreds of years. My goal is to give you a better understanding of why things happen the way they do. So, ask me anything. If one of my videos raises a question, post your question in the comments section beneath it. Every week or so I’ll be exploring the most common questions, and I’ll post my video responses right here for everyone in the Malaska Golf community to see.

    Most all sports cross over. Your body is a pattern machine. It does not know if you are playing golf or tennis or baseball. It is just duplicating or learning patterns. Once you learn a pattern it is transferable to other sports. So any sport that you play has application to golf. And if you play...
