Like most golfers, I have a couple of ‘signature misses’ in my game. That iron shot that goes high towards the flag and then turns left into the bunker is a personal favourite for example. One other one that I have struggled with in the past is pulling wedge shots. This is quite a common… Read More »Pulling Wedge Shots-Cause and Cures
Helping to improve the golf swing
The golf swing transition is one of the most critical points in the swing and for consistent ball-striking. You can have a short or long swing, flat or upright, slow or fast but if your transition is a mess, the end result isn’t going to be great. I am not generally a fan of getting… Read More »Golf Swing Transition-How to Get it Right
My golf swing has never really had a huge movement off the ball and back, but I have noticed over the last year or two that I don’t always stay as far on top of the ball s I would like, especially towards the end of a round when I am a bit tired. I… Read More »How to Stop Sway in the Golf Swing
There are plenty of ways to play golf. You can be a ‘paint by numbers golfer’ for example. 160 yards is always a seven iron, or whatever. You can also be the type of golfer who grew up watching Seve conjure shots out of nowhere. Playing to a distance means nothing to you and you… Read More »When to Choke Up on a Club
You pick that lovely forgiving hybrid out of the bag, set up behind the ball with visions of seeing it fly high and handsome to the green, try to block out that new swing thought you picked up from a guy on YouTube, take the club back and through…..and see the ball scuttle 80 yards… Read More »Stop Topping Hybrids
It seems that I currently have an attraction to controversial topics. Minimalist golf, blades and single length irons are all particular favourites. If there is one thing that is destined to set the golfing internet on fire, it is swing theory. Generally, I don’t worry about this too much, but a recent video from the… Read More »Time for Another Look at Stack and Tilt?
Most golfers will hit a fat or thin shot or two every round. A lot of us will probably slip a hook or fade in there at some point too. While none of this is good and won’t exactly leave us smiling, rarely does it have the same effect as one other type of shot.… Read More »Is Shanking the Worst Shot in Golf?
The driver, along with the putter, can be the most divisive club in the bag. Some golfers love it and can’t wait to get it out of the bag. Others will do anything to avoid it. Many of us will move from one category to another other their golfing lifetime. This is the case for… Read More »Picking a Golf Driver Replacement
Grip is, as I have said previously, one of the fundamentals of a sound golf swing. There are a range of possible grips, all of which can be effective. One question that often comes up is strong vs weak golf grip. What is the difference, which one should you adopt and ultimately, does it make… Read More »Strong vs Weak Golf Grip: Which is Best?
Nobody likes seeing the ball disappear off to the right before finding its way into the trees. In fact, I would guess that the fade is the number one miss for most higher handicap golfers. As a shot, it can also tend to lack power and leave the ball not only out of position or… Read More »How to Correct a Fade in Golf
