Hi Friends: Another winter has arrived and only 8 feet of snow in Buffalo New York for November…must be an all time low! So…let’s move SOUTH to the beautiful, perfect, winter locations for my golf schools: Phoenix, Tucson, Orlando, San Diego, and Ft. Lauderdale, just to name a few…you have arrived! Now, we need a solid PLAN to get our golf games in shape. Whether you are an aspiring Tour Player, College Player, a Club Champion, or just want to REALLY shave 5 strokes off your scores on a consistent basis, let’s get down to the REAL TRUTHS on how to get better…Let’s go:
***GRIP YOUR CLUB CORRECTLY!!…this is the year you finally learn the proper Grip, and how Grip pressure affects every swing you make in golf. When you change your grip, for the better, yes, it will feel “strange and uncomfortable”. Please…grit your teeth and grip your club exactly how your teacher tells you. in 2 weeks, it will become natural, feel much better, and your golf club will start responding the way it should. Be sure to COMPLETELY understand how to put your hands on the club…(Real Truth: You will not improve with a bad grip, no matter how expensive your clubs cost or how many golf swing improvement apps you have on your Smart-Phone).
***POSTURE!!…The bricks and mortar of the golf swing. Without good, athletic posture, your golf swing will never have consistency and, another Real Truth, you will NOT hit the golf ball the distance you are capable of! Yes, your teacher will take video segments of your posture when you are getting ready to hit a shot….study them, analyze them, ask questions. Spine Angle, Knee Flex, Arms Hanging From the Sockets….this is how we get solid and consistent. (no one on the PGA, LPGA, or CHAMPIONS TOUR has bad posture…you shouldn’t either!)
OK Then! These are TWO MAJOR FACTORS that will make life-changing improvements to your golf game. Become better at these and you will wonder how you ever played golf the old way, plus you will feel like you have ACCOMPLISHED something positive. This is golf school…this is Real Learning…this is the REAL TRUTH!
Until I see you on the Practice Range,
