Too Many Tips?

Continuously learning new techniques completely disconnects you from visualizing and feeling good golf shots.

What will help you most on the golf course, is believing you can hit the shot you can see in your mind, not the quirky swing tip you picked up from this month’s golf magazine.

When we practice in the right way, we ingrain good golf shots in our minds and with a good shot routine, we can find them anywhere on the golf course.

As Bobby Jones once said, “the golf swing is too complex a movement to be consciously controlled”.

Make golf a simple and enjoyable game of visualization, feel and trust and you will learn quickly how you can reach your true potential.

Why not set yourself this goal for this season: To have at least one round of golf where you don’t think about anything technical.

You see the shot, the target and just hit it there! Golf is a game of confidence and this is exactly what you will achieve when you change the way you practice.

Golf joke of the week

Back It Up

Arnold Palmer is playing in a big tournament and comes to a 235 yard par-3.

After some deliberation, he takes out his three iron and sails the ball 20 feet over the pin and backs it up to within three feet of the pin.

A fan in the crowd said "Mr. Palmer, how do you make a three iron back up like that?"

Mr. Palmer replied, "Do you own a three iron?"

The fan said, "Yes, sir I do."

"How far do you hit it?" said Palmer. About 160 yards was his reply

Palmer calmly said, "Why the heck do you want it to back it up?"
