May 28th, 2015|

There’s a story that comes from Billy Foster, Seve Ballesteros’ one-time caddy. Once on the golf course at Wentworth Seve knocked his approach shot through the back of a green. This left him with a seemingly impossible lie to recover from.

WHACK!

This one goes low and straight to the left. “Well, better not still not my best golf swing.” he thinks to himself. So he goes on hitting golf balls one after the other while he gets more and more tense because expecting that he can do better.

Broom Broom Broomstick – Long Game Golf Lesson

July 15th, 2014|

It is funny how working away from the course using every day items can help you to improve your golf swing. It is somehow counter-intuitive how not hitting any balls can actually help you make better contact.

Many people believe that beating balls is a great thing to groove their swing. There are other people who think and talk about how they want to improve their swing with dedicated practice. But in the end they are hitting one ball after the other on the range without any target or goal in mind just like so many other people are doing. […]

Miss The Forest For The Trees – How To Shape Your Shots

June 24th, 2014|

Hopefully you have already worked on shaping your shots before. I think even beginners can learn a lot about swing mechanics, if they just try to curve some balls into different directions for some time. The classic situation for a hook or a slice you can read about in many golf books is being in front of a tree.

Although you are very rarely inthose situations and most players are better off by just chipping the ball into a better position, this is ideal to learn about shaping your shots. So if you have a tree somewhere near the practice […]
