“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…

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

2016-12-22T10:43:12+00:00November 22nd, 2016|

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 [...]

How To Make Good Mistakes

2016-12-22T10:42:43+00:00October 22nd, 2016|

One of the best golf books that I have ever read is Dr. Bob Rotella’s book “Golf is not a Game of Perfect.” I can certainly say after playing and teaching this game at all levels for more than 40 years that perfection is impossible. That is why I get so frustrated when i hear [...]

2017 Ready or Not?

2016-12-22T10:45:27+00:00October 22nd, 2016|

For a lot of golfers, this time of the year means the end of the season. Shorter days, colder temperatures, and golf course conditions can seem pretty dreary for several months. However, considering Golf is one of the hardest sports people can play, I get surprised how so many keen golfers are under the impression [...]

It’s mine all mine.

2016-12-22T10:45:07+00:00August 22nd, 2016|

A troubling trend I see with golfers today, both amateur and professional, is the lack of overall ownership they have with their golf swing. Good golfers are sometimes like sheep; they follow the lead of their best golfer friend in order to seek out the magic teachings of their coach, instead of getting their own [...]
