Tips to improve your game.

Here's the swing thoughts I've gleaned over the last year. This game is easy.

This is what you gotta do to hit that perfect shot.

Start with the grip' keep that handle in your fingers
Check your hand position
Check your swing plane
Check you're alignment
Check Ball position
Keep your head steady...no up and down
isolate your head from your shoulders during the swing
You'll move laterally tho' but not too much
Get in some practice swings without a ball
get a max turn...as much as you can.
loose arms
loose shoulders
loose traps
one piece take away
Right elbow
Smooth swing
Shaft points at target
On backswing, Left knee points at ball
start down with the left foot
hips quickly with left side to follow
hit through the ball
maintain your posture, which is a bend from the hips toward the ball
maintain that body angle
follow through down the line
come up when you've completed the through swing
face the target and let your arms rebound to you front left shoulder.

My head hurts.

Now, if that doesn't help buy new clubs :)

Heck, it got bad for me this year, I think I messed up my game thinking about too many.

Towards the End of the year, I put them all on my palm in a "Shopping List", and would highlight only 1-3 to concentrate on that week. Just so I would think less. Kinda Sad.

Even sadder is the fact that once I used the palm method, my handicap dropped close to 5 strokes in just over a month. I will start out next year with the palm method.

I had a list of things & would count them off on my fingers, my playing partners were understanding. When my list grew to more than 10 and I started taking off my shoes so I could count 'em on my fingers & toes, they grew much less supportive. When my list hit 21 things to remember, ......;)

Congratulations. You have completely jinxed me for my next round. I will not be able to get that list out of my head now. SO MANY THINGS I NEVER THOUGHT OF BEFORE.

Well, I have been developing this site to help most swing ailments, it is still under construction, but all in all it will fix many swing faults. Find it here www.thegolfdrillguru.ca

First just determine your ball flight direction, by clicking on the New Visitors area, then once you look at the ball flight laws picture and determine the flight closest to yours, find it on the toolbar on the left of the page. Find out what causes your problems, and how to fix them in the drills section!

Maybe some of this will help your swing problems guys :)
