Back to Basics, Getting your Shoulders and Elbows Aligned!

March 12th, 2011

Today I started hitting balls at the range and totally lost it.  I was hitting a 50-yard sand wedge but couldn’t hit it at the target. No matter what I tried, my swing just felt out of it and literally hooked or sliced my sand wedge 15-30 yards CONSISTENTLY! But no worries, this has happened […]

Transition from Top of the Backswing to Downswing!

March 11th, 2011

Today I realized another importance of transition from top of the backswing to downswing. You see, I am the type of golfer who nearly pauses at the top then precede to the downswing. Well, I’ve tinkered back and forth between pausing and not pausing but today I naturally began to transition from the top of […]

The #1 Rule in Golf and Transition!

March 11th, 2011

Do you know the #1 rule in golf? If you don’t let me tell you, it’s called “aiming”. For example, take your rifle/shotgun/whatever and try shooting at something. Now, if you miss your target, what did you do wrong? Mostly likely aim. Aim is #1 rule in golf. If you have perfect aim, you can […]

Reverse Engineering Your Golf Swing!

March 9th, 2011

Today I tried something weird, different, or whatever it was, it was really good. For those of you who follow Ben Hogan’s transition, you know how his weight transfers well to his left while he has a perfect 90 degrees (or more) formed between his arms and the clubhead. Well, try to get into that […]

Slow Down Your Downswing and Swinging with your Core!

March 8th, 2011

In last couple weeks, I’ve been working on two things that have helped me tremendously in getting my golf swing more consistent. First of all, 99% of amateur golfers swing just way too quickly on the downswing.  When you swing so quickly on the way down, you have virtually no chance of squaring correctly other […]

The Importance of Elbows in a Golf Swing!

February 13th, 2011

Today, while hitting about 300 balls at the range, I began to realize that my elbows were a large part of the golf swing. For some reason I can’t explain, I started hitting the ball really great when I felt like my elbows were in sync. Well after tinkering a bit, I came to an […]

Refining My Golf Swing!

February 9th, 2011

So, today’s practice lead to more great stuff, I am hitting the golf ball beautifully, great low-to-high trajectory with lots of spin, and control over my golf ball. And yes, my driver is definitely going over 320 yards, not that it’s important. Continuing from yesterday’s practice, here’s my swing thoughts: Really feel like you aren’t […]

Playing with Fire!

February 7th, 2011

Okay, the reason why today’s post is called “Playing with Fire” because today’s practice session literally felt like that. For the first time in my life, I could “feel” my hands and clubhead “lagging” behind my lower body and I could sorta control it. What happened? Well, you know the other day I told you […]

February 5th, 2011

You know, too many youngsters these days dream of playing on the PGA Tour and take golf too seriously. Of course, if you are already at that level that’s great but in the end, you want to have fun playing golf. Instead of judging yourself everytime you practice or trying to perfect a golf swing […]
