    All the tips so far my favorite , great site u have designed I enjoy watching past and present tips ,hard not to overdose on all the info ,I’m a 8 handicap player with a terrible over the top hitting habit as I’ve designed my game around pulling ball left and aiming right , how inconsistent my game can be!
    I’m hoping I can for once finally build a solid swing through your online instruction, my goal is to swing on plane and get my diviots pointing down the line and increase power in my irons, as well as being able to switch over to a new set of mizno forged irons and rid my self of the gamers I currently play.
    My short game is only reason my handicap a single digit, I have some bad habits to break and I know u guys will aid me in breaking them this yr. !! Thanks guys. GREAT SITE! Lou Chico. Long Island. NY

      Glad you like it. Thanks for the feedback.

      Make sure you don’t get overloaded. You do not have to watch every tip, every day. Just work on the parts of your game you need to. Each tip is added to the archive. When you get to that section watch those tips.

      You should most definitely be able to work on a great swing. Just make sure you are doing lots of practice swings as you do so. Also, your divots should be pointing slightly left of target for a right handed golfer.

      Keep at it.

    Excellent lesson again ,Dave .
    I’m a great believer of relaxation ” and “empty your mind ” when it comes to golf .
    I do your “breathing exercise” when I feel I’m tightening up ,and I implement the JACK NICKLAUS principle which is to follow the same routine in setting up for each golf shot ,even if it sound’s useless and superfluous at times,when the shot seems easy(A four feet put for example ):never get “sloppy “in playing a golf shot !

  4. Dave,
    Thanks for another good lesson. I’m a horrible putter. I know it’s mostly from tension. I put 5 or 6 small round colored dots on my golf balls. When I practice, I concentrate on one of the dots until after I stroke the putt. It helps me keep my head still & not look up. When I practice, I putt like a pro. When playing tournaments, I setup with me head still & eye on a dot. But I feel tension in my neck & forehead just trying to keep my head still & eye on the dot. I end up moving my head or looking up putt after putt. My fixes have not worked. Is there any hope for me ?

    • If course there is help!!

      I don’t know you but after what you described it almost sounds like you’re trying too hard to apply the things you have learned and in that trying you’re causing tension as well.

  5. Hi Dave, Thanks for your good tip. Warren Buffet once said that the secret of a happy marriage is to have low expectations of your partner. This applies to my golf . At my age (low eighties) I don’t expect to become a pro. I enjoy the little things like being alive, the fresh air and beautiful surroundings of a golf course, the excercise (never use a buggy), my golfing mates and my easy swing.thanks to Paul. A good outcome is an extra pleasure.
    Mentally and physically golf should be enjoyed and not suffered.
