How to Hit Downhill/Uphill/Sidehill Shots!

April 28th, 2010

A lot of you may play great golf on flat courses where there are no hills but suffer bad scores on courses that have lots of hills.   I personally grew up playing very, very hilly golf courses and practically 90% of all my shots were either downhill, uphill, or sidehill. If you don’t know […]

How to Putt Better by Trying Less!

April 27th, 2010

If you want to improve your putting, first thing you will want to do is “stop trying” to sink your putts. I know, I know, the whole point of putting is that you want to make the ball go in the hole but if you keep your focus there, you will inevitably make less putts. […]

Where You the Right Elbow Go at Address?

April 23rd, 2010

Today, I realize one HUGE difference in the way I hit the ball at the range, simply by focusing on my right elbow at address. Simply put it, make sure your right elbow is just slightly bent (happening naturally from relaxing your right elbow) before you swing the club. What this does is makes sure […]

Swing Thoughts!

April 15th, 2010

Okay, here’s some swing thoughts that helped me hit the ball really great yesterday even with a 5-month layoff: Keep your grip super light. Swing with your body as a whole, don’t overswing. Smooth, fluid rhythm, keep everything moving, momentum works best when continuous. I started hitting the ball really good after I realized that […]

2010 Masters Winner Phil Mickelson and Re-cap of Masters 2010!

April 12th, 2010

Well folks, I have been actually in la-la land away from golf.  (That’s what I call life outside of golf.) Because it rains so much here in San Francisco plus I don’t want to waste money on practice balls unless I am going to be playing often.  Anyways, I’ve started up my golf season as […]

Short Game Tip – Getting More Feel Before Hitting That Chip Shot!

December 20th, 2009

If you watch pro golfers on TV carefully, you will notice that sometimes (during the heat of a match/championship), the pro golfer will walk the greens. This is because he/she is trying to get a “feel” for the greens before hitting their chip shot.  Sometimes pros do this for even longer pitch shots such as […]

Putting Tips – How to Putt Consistently!

December 17th, 2009

Last time I showed you some putting secrets of how to roll the putt better by hooking it.  Well, today, let me give you couple tips that will help you putt even better. First, I don’t really care how you grip but your putter should “hang” naturally from your hands.  This fixes many putting flaws.  […]

Putting Secrets – How to “Hook” Your Putts!

December 14th, 2009

Okay, I am going to let out another cat out of the bag, that is “hooking” your putts. I’ve been recently noticing that I have been “naturally” hooking my putts, virtually every one of them.  This occurred naturally while just trying to make solid contact with the ball. By the way, I have been making […]

How to Hit the Pop and Run Pitch Shot! [Short Game]

December 12th, 2009

Today, I was practicing this pop and run pitch shot where your pitch shot flies about 15-20 yards then rolls the rest of the way about additional 5-10 yards. (It’s also called hit-and-run but I like the term “pop and run” since it feels more like I “pop” the ball” rather than “hitting” it) This […]

Continuous Rhythm, Light Hands!

December 11th, 2009

Well, my swing has been getting better and better, thanks to continuous rhythm and light hands.  Today’s practice was a blast although there was a storm moving here into Northern California.  There was only one other guy at the range today and the range was closing rather early at 7pm. Anyways, today I probably had […]
