    You must have played with me this weekend .Your are so right ! I did just that and had a terrible round. Started of great with 50% swing pared first 3 holes and then got greedy. By hole 7 or 8 was right back to my bad golf swing topping and hitting fat. Would up shooting a 97. I have been trying your new system for about 2 months now. Can see some improvement but still having trouble. Thanks for the tips I need all you can send

      So next time you are going to keep greed in mind and avoid it. Let’s see if you improve doing it that way.

      Make sure you are following my lessons in order and doing lots of practice swings hitting the positions. Do this nightly at home, at the range and when you play. After 2 months you should really have started to see your scores drop so maybe you aren’t doing them as precisely as you can. You can find the lessons here:

      Takes work but the payoff is huge.

    Paul, is the corollary that a “bogey player”, like me, should plan on bogeys and get lucky on some holes, rather than try for par and end up with bogeys?

      Yes, you need to be playing body golf until this is a given. This way you are not pressuring yourself trying to make pars and birdies all of the time and having greed kick in. Once you are consistently playing bogey golf set the new goal … maybe 5 shots under bogey planning out the holes that are easier and trying to par or birdied those. Then of course, try to break 80. Just take it in steps. Too many people want too much too soon and never get anything.

    This is a great subject matter and a new perspective for me in learning golf. Being a newbie I didn’t understand your last thought on being “in between clubs” with the 7-iron. Could you define that a little bit for me?

      Glad you liked it.

      In between clubs is when you are in a situation where you think you may be able to get one club to your target if you swing hard or you could take one more club and swing easy. At your stage take one more club. Then you are not getting greedy by thinking you can hit your best shots to get the ball there.
