Are You Being Too Anal?

May 23rd, 2010

Yup, golf can become a bit too “anal”.  Even myself, I used to record my own swing like on everyday basis, trying to achieve a certain, magical swing plane that could get me to hit the ball consistently. Even as of last couple weeks, I have been guilty of that, trying to swing on a […]

Yup, I practiced today too!

May 20th, 2010

Yup, today I practiced too!  I think I am getting better as I get more “hawk-eye” stare-downs by retired, old folks who want to get better at golf. For instance, this 60-year old guy kept staring down at my swing while I practiced.  Although I don’t usually notice because I have my music on my […]

Really Hitting the Ball with Your Body!

May 19th, 2010

Today marks my 60th day of golfing everyday.  Whether I hit 135 golf balls on the range or played 18th holes, I haven’t missed a single day of golf for the last two months. Yes, if you want to improve as bad as I want to, you will have to play golf everyday.  That is […]

How Hard is Pro Golf?

May 18th, 2010

Recently, Jerry Rice gave up after a set of 92-82 and 83-76 at the Nationwide Tour: Rice had shot 92-82 in the first two rounds of the event. He began his quest for a pro golfing card last month when he shot 83-76 and missed the cut at an event in California. How hard is […]

Alignment and Body Swing Ready at Address!

May 17th, 2010

So, I will be honest. I played 3 rounds this year, first time playing golf in 2 years.  (I hit a lot of balls here and there but never played much, maybe 1 round a year) The first time out, I played a pretty tough course (6900 yard from blues, 72.5 slope rating) in my […]

Tips for Improving the Follow Through of Your Golf Swing!

May 14th, 2010

(This was my follow through couple years back, one of the best ways to improve your follow through is to imagine the swing plane (as I have drawn the yellow line, and try swinging your body in sync with it.) Today, I was at the range and had one of those “ah ha” moments.  Because […]

All Body Swing!

May 13th, 2010

Yup, today’s golf swing practice went pretty darn well. One of the things I was doing wrong was aiming.  I was aiming way too far left and I kept hitting a 20-yard banana fade (or slice) OR a 30-50 yard duck hook. After I found out my aiming was off by at least 30 yards […]

How to Make a Consistent Golf Swing with an Image Thoughts!

May 12th, 2010

One of the ways you can make your golf swing consistent is to have a consistent backswing where you are swinging to the same point every time. Over the years, I have found that image swing thoughts work the best to achieve the desired consistency above all other as your brain somehow manages to get […]

How Much Divot Should You Take? [Advanced Golf]

May 6th, 2010

This whole month I am guilty of practicing only on mats at the range.  Usually that’s no biggie but sometimes it can make you think you are hitting the ball awfully well but you might actually “not” be. I did hit up the grass tees couple times lately at the range and notice something funny, […]

How to Putt Better by Slowing Down and Lightening Your Grip!

April 28th, 2010

Well, today was the best putting practice session I’ve had in a long, long time.  I practically sank every 1 out of 3 putts I looked at.   One of the things I was practicing today was putting a “solid” stroke on the ball, like I was telling you the other day. (For those of […]
