    Paul I started out golfing 15 yrs ago and got hooked. I did take lessons without much success because I was hitting into the ground coming over the top until I started watching your videos. I’ve watched others, but in your video, you bring down the swing along with using the lower body properly. I never broke 100 until last year. I am 70 so I can’t practice as much as I’d like because I get exhausted soon. What you have implimented into my game was my having more fun at it. Keep those great tips coming.

      There are a lot of people in the same boat. I just see it differently.

      If you are getting tired you need to be doing practice swings instead of hitting balls. If you do go to the range make a large bucket last 1 hour. This means you hit a few then back up and do practice swings and so on. It’s all about the movement not the ball. Do perfect movement and you will hit perfect shots. Just work on it a little differently.

    Two questions/comments ,Paul:
    -Weight distribution in THE Feet :some teachers advise to have THE Weight more on THE heels .Myself ,I feel better this way ,because I rotate better on THE Heel OF THE left foot in THE through swing than when my Weight is on THE plant OF THE left foot .what is your opinion on this ?
    - Centifugal force :when SWINGING with speed ,THE arms+shaft+ clubhead are pulled outwards by THE centrifugal force ,and THE center OF THE clubface moves further out ,hence the “heeling”.To avoid that ,I position THE ball on it’s TEE at 2/3 OF THE length OF THE clubface,THE ball Closer to THE toe .Do you disadvise doing so ?

      1. Weight should be on your laces or middle of your feet. You then load into the right instep/heel 80% going back. You hit the ball evenly distributed on the forward foot and right inner big toe. The to the outside of the left heel 90% at follow through.

      2. I hit everything with the all on the toe ala George Knudson. Is this a definite. No. I would be if the great majority of players did this but most align it in the center. I actually see my head move forward in the downswing which I feel is getting the club to contact the center as opposed to the arms outstretching. I do feel way more comfortable and not crowded when I align on the toe so I continued to do it. If you like it this way then keep doing it.

gam-golf-140Last week I was fortunate to get together with the resident pro for a company called GAME GOLF.  This is a new GPS stat tracking system.

This system is worn on your belt an communicates with tags that are inserted into the grips of your clubs.  More and more tour players including: Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk are using this same device.

Tracking your stats is a great way to help lower your scores and see your progress over time.  Using the GAME GOLF stat tracker will allow you to know exactly how far you are hitting your clubs, distance hit, left or right, long or short percentages and much more!

I have posted a video of me using this amazing new product on the course.  It is not cheap but as you know I only promote product that will help your game.  I highly recommend this product.
