Golf Tips - Practice Thoughtful Swings

By Thomas Tetrault, PGA Pro

Most people practice more when they're playing badly as opposed to when they're striking the ball well. When you're playing badly, it's time to take a lesson - not practice a bad swing. When you're playing good and striking the ball well is when you want to practice more so you can learn to repeat that good swing. To be good at your practice you must think on every shot and develop a good routine. You're better off making 10 good thoughtful swings then hitting 50 balls rapid fire with little thought. Also, when practicing don't hit too many balls without a break because fatigue will set in and swing will break down. *

Slicing and Hooking Intentionally Have the clubface aiming where you want the ball to end up and take your stance aiming at where you want the ball to start off, and then swing on your stance line
Think Rotation, not Weight Shift Eliminate the term weight shift. It is actually a move to the back leg and then a shift to the front leg. This allows for natural head movement and body rotation
Ball Position With Different Clubs Position your ball near the bottom of the swing arc and just off your front leg
