Of All The Things I Teach Or Have Taught In Golf…

2018-02-28T13:03:01+00:00February 28th, 2018|

Of all the things I teach or have taught in golf, I think this is the most important: It’s not what we cover in a lesson, it’s what YOU discover.  If you are hitting the ball better during a lesson, you have proven to yourself that you CAN do it. But what comes after the lesson [...]

Is progress our ability to complicate simplicity?

2017-11-27T15:13:16+00:00November 27th, 2017|

It’s great that we now have the technology to seemingly analyse every aspect of the golfer, their swing, the ball and the golf club, but we have to be realistic in terms of our goals. Ask yourself this question: If I can’t do something perfectly, is there a way I can still do it better? [...]

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

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 [...]

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 [...]

“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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
