  1. Paul,

    Great advice for practicing and working on your swing.
    What advice do you give for hitting balls (warming up) before a round?

  2. Hi Paul,
    I really love the spirit of your tips : no headache, you make it plain and clear. This one is based on what I would expect from any good pro : going to the very roots of the problems. It is some time now since I tried to apply this one. I won’t fool you : this is very, very hard to stick to. Last time, I tried to stay aware of what I was doing : first half of the bucket, making swings without balls between each shot, then I started to feel good, only too good : a couple of minutes later, I got excited and guess what : good old arms were back in the game in no time. What I did this time : I stopped, took my bucket, and went straight to the pitching range. Spent half an hour or so so make gentle rolling chips. Then I went back to the range and started easy full swings again. Well, this time, much cooler. Made that bucket last as long as I could. Probably hit a record of 30 consecutive balls using my pitching wedge, each of them landing within the width of an average green. The more I practice your tips, the more I understand you can’t get immediate results : takes time and lots of patience, because our very deep nature is so hard to keep at bay…

    • Pierre,

      Glad you like the tips. Thanks for the feedback.

      There is no headache because I went through these headaches for you. I want to explain it in a way everyone gets it.

      This is exactly why I posted this tip. You are not alone. Too many people are just hitting ball after ball. As the person does this they go harder and harder like you did. I have done this too. I know better now though.

      I like how you stopped hitting balls. This is huge. Most people would have keep going got frustrated and even got another bucket. Now, the next time you go to practice start off slowly and gradually build it up. After you keeping catching yourself speeding up you will reduce the number of times you do this so you will keep getting used to the effortless swing as opposed to the faster one. Once you do this, it becomes a whole new world.

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.
