Improving The Mental Picture Of Your Swing

Visualization techniques help improve your game. All good players do it, whether consciously or unconsciously. PGA pros, for example, visualize every shot they take. It’s the key to their success. I also encourage it in my individual golf instruction sessions. Below are a couple of visualization techniques that I’ve written about in my golf tips. To improve your scores quickly, try developing a good mental picture of your swing. Too many recreational golfers have a poor mental picture of their swing. Hence, their swings look awkward and disjointed. This awkward, disjointed swing isn’t solely the player’s fault. It’s also the fault of the way we teach golf. When I give golf lessons, I often work on individual elements of the …

Are Golf Balls The Most Expensive Golf Accessories Of All

A golfer is always faced with a constant barrage of things that he can possibly spend his money on. These things range from the necessary things like golf clubs, to completely unnecessary things like trophy cases for hole-in-one balls. It would seem that a golfer’s money could constantly be thrown away on the many things that are available for purchase. However, one of the most expensive things that a golfer has to spend money on is not what you would expect. Golf balls are perhaps the most irritating thing that a golfer buys. He seems to buy them over and over, as they disappear into bushes, lakes, or sand traps. Rates for golf balls can seem fairly ridiculous too, with …

Apart From A Proper Golf Swing Trainer, A Golfer Needs More Than One Golf Course!

There you are, the newest member of the golf retirement community, putting to engineer that innocent looking little white ball into the black hole at last. The soft sea breeze stroking your aching back after that one wild swipe at the dodgy little Callaway golf ball when you thought no one was watching. And something else is bothering you. You know what it is, but you don’t want to acknowledge it, because you don’t know what to do about it. You don’t yearn for the latest golf swing trainer, golf cart accessory or other related retirement gift. It is something entirely different that is tap-tap-tapping away at your thoughts.

How To Use Golf Training Aids To Assist With Your Warm Up And Stretching

How many times has this happened to you? You get to the course 15 minutes before your tee time. By the time you get all your stuff together, pay the greens fees, etc., and then get yourself to the putting green there is less than 10 minutes left before game time. You hit some putts, some chips, and then take a few swings to loosen up. Feeling pretty good, you stroll to the first tee, put your bag down, and look down the fairway. It’s a dogleg right with OB on the right and tree trouble on the left. It’s not long but it’s tight, with the potential for a round-ruining big number. That’s when you start to realize the …

How To Transfer Your Golf Swing From The Range To The Course

I just shake my head when watching “machine gun golfers.” They mindlessly bang out buckets of balls believing they are creating muscle memory. Perfect practice sessions include complete pre shot and post shot routines. Hence, you should only be able to hit, at the most, two balls per minute. Many golfers still mistakenly believe that if they regularly practice newfound skills they will automatically transfer onto the course. LEARNING HOW TO SWING AND LEARNING HOW TO PLAY ARE TWO SEPARATE PROCESSES. If there is a weakness I see in most teaching pros, they don’t spend enough lesson time on the issue of transference from the range to the course. The fact is, a golf instructor wirth his salt will take …

How to Take Strokes off your Golf Game by Mastering the Mental Part of it

The game of golf can be broken down into two parts: muscle memory and the mental game. Muscle memory is simple. So long as you have a decent swing you can lower your handicap by increasing your muscle memory and you do that by, of course, putting in range time. By contrast, the mental game is something that is as complex as the human mind itself and even professional golfers who have muscle memory down could endure occasional breakdowns of their mental games. How, then, is an amateur like you supposed to master the mental game? Well, a number of mental practices you can put in your bag will shave more strokes off your game then any gimmicky golf ball. …

How To Pick The Best Golf Clubs For A Beginner

When you are first starting out with golf, you will want to have equipment that is geared more towards your skill level than anything else. If you decide that you are crazy about golfing and you want to spend thousands of dollars on the most deluxe clubs available, you are likely to encounter nothing but frustration. The more expensive clubs are meant to be played on by experts, so your lower skill level is just going to clash with their design, and you will be left with a bunch of clubs that you utterly despise, and paid a huge amount of money for. Therefore any beginning golfer should carefully choose the clubs that they buy based on a few different …

Here are a few tips so you don’t have to re-learn the game once the spring rolls around. Grip A great swing starts with a great grip. Learning the proper neutral grip can be very uncomfortable.

How To Cope With Flight Delays (Part 1)

There are many things that can make it impossible for flights to arrive on time. Some of these problems, such as bad weather and resulting air traffic delays, are beyond the airlines’ control. Others, such as the need for mechanical repairs, cannot be predicted. Nevertheless, you can take steps to reduce your chances of encountering most problems and limit their effects. When booking your flight, remember that a departure early in the day is less likely to be delayed than a later flight, due in part to the “ripple” effects of delays throughout the day. Also, if an early flight does get delayed or canceled, you may have more rerouting options. If you book the last flight of the day …
