What You Can Learn From Ernie Els Golf Swing

By | on September 3, 2014 | 4 Comments | FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites (see below)


In this tip I read a quote from Ernie Els and go over the key points he describes about his golf swing and how he swings. As you know Ernie has that slow, easy looking golf swing and I teach that slow, easy looking golf swing. You couldn’t get a better match. If you want to learn how to stop using your arms to hit the ball and develop that slow, easy swing take it from Ernie and me and put these things into practice.

    G’day Paul,
    A few years back I told our club Pro I wanted to swing like Ernie, he thought that was a good idea. I went through a period when I was saying to myself “How slow can you go”, the results were good. Then the gremlin of more length off the tee came along. Yes, I turned into a hitter and, the more I tried the worse it got. Well I found you and found my way again (with lapses). Yesterday, one of my playing partners commented how effortless my swing looked. I guess it must be working, my drives were keeping up with fellows 20 years my junior, my short irons need a bit more work.

      The Ernie Els image is a good one to model your swing after. Where you went wrong was not increasing the leg drive for more power. It’s real easy to get the arms back in the swing. It is fine to want more power. In fact it is human nature to want to hit the ball farther. Now when you go to do this you will be thinking about using the legs so this time you won’t lose it. If you do hit shots at half speed and build it back up again.

      I think this tip covers it:

  2. Hi Paul,

    I am enjoying your tips very much, am I started practicing inside and outdoors because golg is extremely expensive in Brazil.
    So far so good.

    I just saw the tip about Ernie Els, great stuff.
    But the video image also shows text lines, ( I assume for people with hearing problems) and this is not really following your voice.
    It translates what your are saying quite often in the wrong way. Swaying becomes slaying, swing becomes sling or slang and OK so becomes case so. Very funny but also disturbing and not reflecting the quality you put in the tips.
    This is not the only video where it happens.

    I hope this is helpful.

      The text is YouTube’s automated close caption system which is never right and I don’t have time to go through all of these tips to correct it. It tries to pick up what you are saying. Of course this will never be able to pick up what people are saying from a video.

      Not sure why you are watching that version because that is one of the free tips. The other version is here:
