Golf Tips & Quips is written by Dexter W. Francois

I'm just trying to get better at the game I have grown to love. This blog is kind of a journal of my progress to becoming a better golfer. I will share all the tips, drills, exercises, and experiences that I am using to improve. Hopefully they will help you too.

Where I Am From To Where I am Now:

I was born on the island of Trinidad; the same country PGA Tour Player Steven Ames is from. I am looking forward to playing a round with him some day. My parents moved to New Jersey when I was three and we lived there until I was 6. We then moved to Rhode Island, where I lived until I left for the University Of Miami at the age of 18. After receiving a Bachelors Of Business Administration degree, I decided to stay in Miami. Who wouldn't right?  I spent the next 14 years on the shores of South Beach before meeting my wife at a friends wedding in Phoenix Arizona. Now I am a resident of "The Valley Of The Sun." So basically I went from really good golf to really really good golf.

Why I Fell In Love With The Game Of Golf:

The first time I picked up a golf club was my senior year of high school and I absolutely hated it. Mainly because my life was all about baseball and basketball. Golf didn't seem like a real sport to me. Plus I stunk at it. It wasn't until one of my good friends from college gave me an old set of clubs and I hit that first pure shot, that I became hooked. The sensation I felt when the ball flew of the clubface was one that I wanted to feel over and over again. Since then it has become my obsession.

What Are My Goals:

My goals are pretty lofty. I want to play on the Champions Tour someday. That gives me 14 more years(from the time that I am writing this)to make it. I know, I know. It may seem like a Pipe Dream, and many others have the same improbable dream, but I have always liked a challenge, and this is as big a challenge as there is.
