Swing Better = Get Better?

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

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 [...]

Howard’s Blog – Is Patience Really A Virtue…

2016-12-22T10:40:06+00:00November 29th, 2016|

I believe every player  that wants to improve needs some form of instruction whatever their ability. This instruction must be tailored to their individual skill level and should be designed to build the best and most consistent game with the least amount of work on their part. This means, for me, changing as little of [...]

12 Winter Tips

Warm up two golf balls before you tee off. Keep them in your pocket and alternate them whenever you tee off at each hole. That allows you to keep your balls as warm as possible. You are not breaking the rules as long as you don’t heat your balls artificially during a round. (How many [...]

Who wants to be Mr Average?

2016-12-22T10:45:48+00:00November 22nd, 2016|

When was the last time you came in from a round , shooting four or five strokes higher than expected, and said, “that’s fine. Maybe I’ll do better next time.” For most of you reading this, this rarely (if ever) happens. Why? Because you love golf, you’re competitive, and you expect to shoot a certain [...]
