Does Custom Fitting Help?

2017-10-06T12:20:43+00:00October 6th, 2017|

If a new set of fitted clubs meant that you'd drive the ball 20 yards longer and drop 10 strokes, would you reach for your credit card? According to a recent test conducted by a top club-fitting company, such handicap-smashing results are possible. They had seven players custom-fit for all-new sets, from driver to putter. [...]

3 Steps to Heaven

2017-10-06T14:19:56+00:00October 6th, 2017|

Your golf is broken and you know it. There's something fundamentally wrong. Everything was fine, and then one day it wasn’t. Well, that’s not entirely true. You started to feel it slipping away a few weeks ago but you ignored it hoping that it would get better. Unfortunately it got worse, until you had a [...]

Further?

2017-09-01T15:56:16+00:00September 1st, 2017|

Trouble is, average golfers aren't taking advantage of the game's increasingly sophisticated technology. A recently exclusive player test revealed that golfers across all ability levels are leaving an average of 23 yards on the table. Golf Digest studied how 150 average golfers hit their drivers. They measured swing speeds from 60 miles per hour to [...]

Swing Better = Get Better?

2017-04-29T12:38:18+00:00April 29th, 2017|

Ask yourself this – what is your idea of ‘Swing better’. If it is based on an assumption that a swing, which is symmetrical and pretty, is better, go ahead and work on how your swing looks. You can look great, as you never improve your scores. Studies in biomechanics clearly show that some of [...]

3 Keys To Improving Your Wedge Game

2017-08-29T16:19:42+00:00April 29th, 2017|

If you watch the best players in the world hit wedges, you’ll see them frequently using a shot that most amateurs don’t have. It’s called a “flighted” wedge, and it flies lower-than-normal. This is helpful because the lower ball flight improves consistency and offers more spin. It’s a shot that can take an average wedge game [...]

Excuses…excuses

2017-03-18T14:02:34+00:00March 18th, 2017|

Why they happen -  Making excuses Is an easy trap to fall into because when you’re not playing well you like to think there’s an easy answer. The first thing to blame is usually anything but yourself and your ability to make a good golf swing. Unfortunately, the spoken word can influence even the most [...]

“Everything You Want Is On The Other Side Of Fear”

2017-03-19T17:47:49+00:00March 18th, 2017|

You might be using "lack of natural talent" as your excuse for not improving beyond your handicap. But believe me embracing the "natural talent & fear of failure myths" is what could be keeping you from getting better, not your club head speed or backswing. In the culture of golf, and sports in general, people [...]

The Golf Swing Has Only ONE Purpose!

2017-01-19T17:33:08+00:00January 19th, 2017|

THE GOLF SWING has only one purpose: to deliver the head of the club to the ball correctly, and to achieve such impact repeatedly. Many unorthodox players achieve correct impact -- so long as it's repeatable, it's OK. If golf were about getting into correct positions throughout the swing, then the greatest players in the [...]

I Know What You’re Doing Wrong!

2017-01-19T17:25:44+00:00January 19th, 2017|

How many times have you heard that while on the golf course or the range? Sadly, there’s struggling golfers who actually listen to this advice. I wish I had a fiver for the number of students that I have seen applying the incorrect advice of playing partners, random people on the range, or a friend who [...]
