Golf Swing Secrets Of The Greats – Tom Watson

When we are talking about grace and staying true to the game it doesn’t get any better than Tom Watson.

Thomas Sturges Watson was born in September 4, 1949 and is still one of the most iconic golfers of our time. With 71 professional victories and 8 major titles he was one of the few players who challenged Jack Nicklaus in his prime years.

Their head-to-head battles made golf history and held everybody in awe.

One of the most dramatic and famous shots was the chip in by Watson at the U.S. Open in 1982 at the 17th hole of Pebble Beach. […]

You Don’t Have to be Tiger Woods to Learn Something From His New Coach Chris Como

As of late there has been a lot of buzz around Tiger again. In late August Tiger parted ways with his recent swing coach Sean Foley saying “I’d like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship (…)”. Then there was the debacle about the fake interview by Dan Jenkins on Golf Digest which even triggered a response from a slightly annoyed Tiger.

And finally this November Tiger announced via twitter that he will be working together with Chris Como having him as his new swing consultant.

Notice that he says Como will be his […]

Master Your Golf Swing – 6 Lessons to Practice Like a Pro

WHACK!

There goes Jasons first ball of the day curving way to the right shooting almost off the range. Shaking his head he pulls up another one and…

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.

It’s almost time to tee it off.

“Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to get a practice session in just before hitting the course with Anthony?” he […]

David vs. Goliath – Fun and Easy Golf Format

In golf you are always playing against yourself and the golf course. But let‘s face it, all golfers are influenced by other golfers, team mates and opponents alike. So dealing with your own feelings when playing has a big influence on your game. This becomes especially true when you are facing a player that is significantly better than you and is even cocky about it.

Situations like this are great lessons to learn about yourself and your game. When you are up against a tough competitor, there are two things to keep in mind. One is not trying too hard and making every shot into a decision of […]

Broom Broom Broomstick – Long Game Golf Lesson

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

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 […]

Pitching to Targets – Improve Your Pitch Shots Fast

Time and again people seem to forget that golf is a target game, when they are practising. They get in a rut and work on the mechanics of their swing or specific positions they want to go through or hold. That is okay to some extent, but not, if that is all you are doing when you are practicing.

The following exercise is great to hone your skill to always think of targets when you are pitching. There are a lot of strokes to shave off your score with a great short game. If you can make a decent approach […]

Assessment Center – Mental Game Golf Lesson

More often enough you can see some people on the practice tee that are getting more and more frustrated with their game as they are doing  their thing. Hopefully you are not one of those people. It is useful to know where this frustration is coming from, though. It is likely that most of those players do not actually know the root of their own frustration.

I think it stems from their expectations. They think they are able to perform great shots consistently because they where able to pull them off once or twice. But most likely these shots where lucky and not because of their […]

14 Clubs – Extremely Fun Golf Format

This is another fun variety of a regular scramble. 14 Clubs is a fun little game that makes you think about how to attack the course and use your clubs in different ways. You play a regular scramble in teams of two. The kicker is that each team is only allowed to use 14 clubs total and that each club can be used only once on each hole (even the putter).

So you are basically playing out of one bag which you can actually do. You can also remove all but seven clubs from each bag. You are not allowed to take multiple clubs of the […]
