  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.

    Is there a progression to going through your method? By that I mean, what is the best order to go trough the videos and tips if there is one. I feel like I am bouncing around sometimes and want to me deliberate in what I am focusing on. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the quick reply. That’s the order I have been progressing through pretty much so I’m glad I’m on the right track.
