This Will Transform Your 2018 Golf Season

2018-04-10T14:22:43+00:00

Fact: Key aspects of your golf game get out of whack in the winter – our timing, our mechanics, our feel… It’s common when we fall out of practice. So, seeing that it’s March and we could still be a couple months out from outdoor golf, you’ve got to find a way to get your game up to par (er, birdie?) before the weather warms up.

Your only no-worries solution: Be truly prepared for the in-season by staying prepared through the off-season. Yes, that means these winter months are the best time to take golf lessons. When you think about other sports, off-season training is critical to READ MORE

Timing Matters: Is a slow backswing more effective?

2018-03-21T19:39:42+00:00

Slow backswing vs. quick backswing: Which is more effective? Will the steady stylings of Ernie Els or the flash-forward swing of Ricky Fowler get you closer to the hole?

Answer: Believe it or not, the difference in swing tempo has no significant bearing on your performance.

So what does matter? (Suppose the headline sort of gives it away, doesn’t it.)

Answer: Timing. It’s the simple principle of timing and the impact of those elements or (lack thereof) on your game. The true difference-maker is the 3:1 ratio. (And this is the key.) For instance, if drawing the club back takes you .75 seconds, your downswing should take you .25 READ MORE

Was that the wind or am I a terrible golfer?

2018-02-24T13:56:05+00:00

So you’re closing out the back nine with a group of buddies when your ball takes a hard left-turn in mid-air for an Olympic swan-dive in the drink. You, of course, are pointing a finger at the wind, while your buddies are exchanging twenties on their odds bet. Who’s right? Bad news: we’ll never know. Because the 18th hole doesn’t have built-in feedback technology to show you what went right (and where mother nature wronged you). And of course, the outdoor driving range offers the same weather-driven whims.

Fact: the only way to conduct a true performance assessment is to strip down your surroundings, eliminate all external READ MORE

WHY GOLF LESSONS ARE VITAL.

2018-02-07T21:06:42+00:00

Plain and simple: Most golfers are either learning the wrong things, or they’re learning the right things in the wrong order. The result? Their swing, their game and their score are destined to mediocrity and the inability to improve.

That might sound dramatized, but it’s actually very true.

So let’s talk about why this happens.

Instructional efforts in golf have resorted to myths, clichés and random verbiage such as “keep your head down,” “hit down on the ball,” or “you’re not turning.” (If you’re smiling right now, chances are you’ve heard this direction firsthand.)

Struggling golfers typically attempt to reconstruct their swings based on previous bad shots – and with READ MORE
