I feel bad for my golf instructor! After finding out about the guys at "me and my golf", i've learned more watching their videos than I ever could hav... e with an instructor. 30 minute sessions compared to constant videos at my leisure have given me more time to learn and practice my swings. You guys truly provide easy to understand lessons for golfers at any level. Thank you so much, you guys are a blessing for the golfing community! Read More
Moving to his professional career, at the end of 2008, he enrolled in the Qualifying school for the PGA Tour. He performed well there, however, he had to struggle from his debut year, he just made eights cuts in total 18 appearances.

BMW Championship: Entered the BMW Championship No. 34 in the FedExCup standings and moved to No. 3 with his third-career victory, securing his spot in the following week's TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola. Opened the event with an 8-under 63, equaling the best opening round in BMW Championship history. He held at least a share of the lead the rest of the way en route to becoming the first European winner of a PGA TOUR Playoffs event and the first to win the BMW Championship since Harry Cooper in 1934. The final round was nip and tuck most of the day with John Senden, but he secured the deal with a chip-in for birdie on the par-4 17th hole from 35 feet, 10 inches on his way to an even-par 71 and a two-stroke victory over Senden. The win was just the second in eight attempts when he's taken the lead/co-lead into the final round on the PGA TOUR.
Woodland was born in Topeka, Kansas, the son of Dan and Linda Woodland.[2] He attended Shawnee Heights High School in the suburb of Tecumseh.[3] After high school, he attended Washburn University in Topeka on a basketball scholarship, but left after his freshman year to attend the University of Kansas in Lawrence on a golf scholarship.[4] He studied sociology while at KU. Woodland had a successful college golf career, winning four tournaments before turning professional in 2007.
Despite his early career struggles, Rose's career soon began to take off and he became established on the European Tour. In 2001 he opened the season with consecutive second-place finishes in the country of his birth, South Africa. He went on to finish the year in top-40 on the Order of Merit. He won his first professional event, the Dunhill Championship in South Africa, in 2002, and followed this up with three further victories in that year. They included another win in South Africa at the Nashua Masters, a win on the Japanese Golf Tour at the Crowns Tournament, and then he won his second European Tour title at the Victor Chandler British Masters, edging out Ian Poulter in the final round.

I joined meandmygolf just under a month ago, after I saw the free videos on YouTube. I liked the way Piers & Andy explained the concepts, and sign... ed up for the free 30-days. I've played one year previously (2008), before I went to university, and had to drop this expensive hobby. I started playing golf again this summer, and was playing somewhere around 95-110 shots. I wanted to get better fast, and started the Break100-plan to get under 100 constently. I went through the plan a bit quicker, 2 weeks of the plan in one week, and just after I finished the last week, I pulled an amazing score of 84!!! That is absolutely insane. Something just clicked. If you want to build your game back up, or just go back to the basics, don't skip the drills. They may sound tedious and lame, but they actually help. Stick with the plan, and I guarantee it will work! Can't wait for the Break90 plan! Awesome job Piers & Andy! Read More
Woodland made waves in the equipment world when he signed with Wilson Golf early in 2019. He used an eye-catching set of Wilson Staff Model Blade irons to win the 2019 U.S. Open, and then he put social media into a frenzy when he switched into a Staff Model Blade 2-iron at the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. Seriously, his 2-iron is why the “butter knife” stereotype exists. 
Turkish Airlines Open: Defeated HaoTong Li with a par on the first playoff hole at the Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour and regained the World No. 1 position for the second time in 2018. Successfully defended a title for the first time in his career and became the first player to defend the Turkish Airlines Open. Started the day three shots back of the overnight leader and carded a final-round 3-under 68 to finish in a tie with Li at 17-under.
In March 2011, Rose had a chance to add to his two PGA Tour titles won in 2010, when he entered the final round at the Transitions Championship with a one-stroke lead. However, he shot a three-over-par 74, which included four consecutive bogeys in the middle of the round, to finish five shots behind the champion Gary Woodland. In September 2011, Rose won the BMW Championship, the third of the four FedEx Cup playoff events at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. This was his first title of the year and third career PGA Tour win. Rose entered the week on the playoff bubble at 34th in the standings, knowing that he needed a good finish to make the final event at East Lake Golf Club. The win elevated him to 3rd in the standings and the position of knowing that if he won the Tour Championship he would be the FedEx champion. A flawless round of 63 on the opening day helped Rose to build a four stroke advantage going into the final round, and even though there was a late wobble with a bogey at the par five 15th, Rose recovered and won by two strokes from John Senden.[20] Rose did not enjoy the same success at the Tour Championship though, when a second round 75 ended his chances of winning. He finished the tournament in a tie for 20th place and 5th on the overall FedEx Cup Standings.
Rose publicly focused on the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where golf was returning as a full event for the first time since 1904 in St. Louis. On the opening day, he became the first ever player to make a hole-in-one in Olympic play after recording it on the 189-yard par-3 4th hole of Gil Hanse's new Olympic Course in Barra da Tijuca using a 7-iron.[28] Described as having an inspiring effect on the rest of the Great Britain team, Rose later gave the golf ball from that hole-in-one to gymnast Nile Wilson, who would go on to win a bronze medal in the horizontal bar.[29]
