Video Golf Tip | Modern Training Techniques

Here is a little history lesson about how Greg Norman changed golf. Yes, I think that Greg Norman is responsible for the modern training techniques that players now use. Greg was the first to consult an outside person on his training. He went to Evander Holyfield's training people and asked them how to develop a sport specific, a golf specific, program for his physical conditioning. He also went to Butch Harmon, encouraged by Steve Elkington and me, to get a swing that matched his physical capacity, his athleticism that involved the big muscles and less hands and less temptation to flip the club. Greg went on a mission early in the 1990s to be a completely different athlete. I am not sure people really appreciate, and that the amateur athlete today appreciates how much goes in to training yourself to play better golf. It is important to have a program of strength and conditioning, short game, long game, mental game and course strategy. Learn from Greg Normal and it will make you a better player.

Five Parts of the Downswing Sequence Follow the correct sequence of movement during the downswing to create more power and consistency
Ball Position Routine Use this step-in routine when you set up to the ball so that you always play the ball in the correct position for each club
Chipping: Arc in the Swing Use your right forearm to turn as you go through while the left arm is folding in. Make sure to maintain an arc in your swing as this short swing still requires a rounded swing path.
