In terms of content this is a GREAT tip and we can all trace this down to the stretches of golf we played well. In terms of format this is the best I have seen of David and I wish he would stage his tips, even without Paul, rather than do a “talking head” tip. It is much more powerful.
Best, to both.

Glad you liked it. It is about time fr him to get together with me. When we have time we can do them together. By himself is tough. He needs the equipment and he can’t just wander onto the course so this is a little tricky.
Hi Paul and Dave,
I started golfing 2 years ago. I am 57. Something you may be able to use on your instruction is some succinct observations by a c grade player ( me). I just finished a medal round(stroke play) and my game was filled with Great shots, some blades some shanks, some fat shots, some hooks and some slices, some fantastic chips and bunker play etc. I even had some very good and very bad putts. I played with a 5 (a grade) handicapper. But I kept a positive attitude. For example on number three I topped and went into the water, but my second shot from tee was on the green. He was having a bad day. The swearing and condemnation he put himself through the round
was exhaustive and I felt sorry for him. You want to know why? Answer: He didn’t realise how hard I was trying to do well and how much I wished I could hit the shots he was so critical of himself. My handicap today was 26. No matter how hard I tried to do the positions, and play my best game, it came no where near what he believed was his worst game. Off the stick he was 84-6 a 78. I was 110-26 84. I am sorry if it seems I rambled, but you know for us c graders that are trying so much and practicing, I would say to the a and b graders take it easy on yourselves, remember where you started, and others like me wish they could hit the ball as bad as you.

It becomes a whole new world as you get to single digits (you’ll see). I am was very hard on myself too way back when I was trying to do 5 things every time I tried to hit a ball. Once I based my swing on 3 things and knew exactly what caused my bad shots it was a whole new world for me. It was like a giant weight was lifted from my shoulders. I guarantee he is still guessing and has no clue how the golf swing works and how to fix his own swing. When you don’t know it becomes frustrating because you never find the answer. In a round or two he will be back with a big smile on his face until the next bad round.
Just keep thinking that you are going to know how to fix your own swing so you are light years ahead of him already.
Thank you for your insight. Your help and instruction not only aids me on the golf course but also in the way I think of life’s obstacles.
It was a very good choice to sign up for you and your teams help.

When I think I can control and repeat my proper swing, is when I get into trouble. Yes, I can stand behind the ball and pick out my target in the distance and my intermediate target to align the club face, take my stance parallel left of the target line. I can visualize the shot. But when it comes to taking the swing, I believe my thoughts get in the way and my tempo. I have trouble repeating a good, proper swing. The more I think about the swing. The more inconsistent becomes my swing and ball sticking. I lose flow, I lose tempo. The more I try to control my swing, the more I seem to get in my own way.
