Smacking a tee shot or a fairway iron into the rough is a relatively common occurrence for most recreational golfers. Landing a ball a few yards off of the fairway typically isn’t a big deal unless you are unable to find it, which can lead to dreaded penalty strokes and a need to fork over cash for new spheres. Losing balls on the course can be embarrassing, expensive and time-consuming and can easily ruin whatever rhythm or focus you were carrying throughout your round.

Golf Stretching For A Better Swing

I’ll make a bold statement that nearly all the golfers that are 50 years or older have range of motion issues in their golf swing. This can really inhibit your ability to make a full backswing. Not making a full shoulder turn robs you of distance. And, it can also cause all kinds of swing faults.

Bunker Shots And Impact

Fault: When playing bunker shots I see players trying to ensure that their hands lead the swing like when chipping. I’ve even seen some golfers position the ball behind their back foot.

How To Drive A Golf Ball Far

Bragging rights in golf is who hit the longest driver that day. Golfers have been search for the holy grail of “how to drive a golf ball far” for decades.

The logic here is that since you setup the same way every time, you train yourself to develop the right position, posture, etc. that really work.

If you setup with things that you’re used to, everything else will follow.

One of the challenges in golf is mastery of putting. This routine is often touted as a game inside a game in as much as a lot of skills needed are different from those needed in the rest of the game. It is very important to be a brilliant putter since most of the shots-often nearly 50 percent-come from putting.

Golf Back Swing

A lot of golfers make the mistake of letting their left knee collapse to the right during their golf back swing. Little do they know that this pulls the shoulder down and makes the hips sway and misaligned. The solution to this is to think of the left knees as going out toward the ball during backswing. There should be a feeling of tension and stability in both knees. One activity that golf instructors do to teach this is to make their students hold a basketball between the knees.

The Most Common, Critical Error in Golf

The golf downswing is where the vast majority of golf swings goes awry. Even if the player has the perfect grip and stance, lines up to the ball perfectly and flawlessly executes the upswing, a bad downswing will undo all the hard work.
