  • Pulling the handle of the club down to the ball during the downswing will create a slice, initiate the downswing with your hips and left shoulder... watch video
  • The plane of the shoulders and the head play a key role in proper coil in the swing... watch video
  • Hooks are caused by the disconnection of the left or right elbow to the body, which forces you to flip your hands over before impact during the downswing... watch video
  • Focus on the role of the left side at the completion of the backswing and start of the downswing... watch video
  • Draws are straight shots that fall to the left, which are different from hooks that curves to the left... watch video
  • To fade the ball set your front foot open slightly and make your normal swing, this will allow the ball to fade and not slice... watch video
  • Focus on the role of the right side at the completion of the backswing and start of the downswing... watch video
  • Square your club-face by creating an inner force with your left hand and an outer force with your right... watch video
  • Tension is the cause for most driver and long iron problems, players tense their muscles in the set up and sap all their ability to create power during the swing... watch video
  • Keeping your right elbow tucked in during the downswing leads to the common problem of flipping your wrists... watch video
  • Hooks are often caused by trying to stay behind the ball, which makes you flip your wrists at impact... watch video
  • Keep your left arm connected to your shoulder... watch video
  • Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement... watch video
  • Always maintain the same plane on your downswing as your backswing and keep your plane between the ball and your feet... watch video
  • Dedicate yourself to implementing one swing method when practicing... watch video
  • The most important aspect of putting is to have the putter head come back inside the target line to avoid creating angles... watch video
  • Keep the left elbow pointing down, the right hip level and eyes and spine towards the target... watch video
  • Keep your left elbow pointing to the ground to eliminate angles in the swing... watch video
  • Maintain a triangular position with the arms from the set-up position and throughout the golf swing... watch video
  • Tucking or pulling your right elbow down during the downswing causes your left elbow to move away from your body, creating an angle that leads to a slice... watch video
  • Staying behind the ball is one of the most common causes of the slice, you must move through the ball to the finish... watch video
  • Practice the split grip and club-in-center drills to allow the arms and body to swing correctly together... watch video
  • The plane of the shoulders play a key role in your golf swing... watch video
  • Right foot square, left foot open, feet shoulder width apart and shoulders level... watch video
  • The arms should form a triangular position which should be maintained throughout your golf swing... watch video
  • Keeping your head directly over the ball during the backswing causes you to shift your weight forward, instead of loading up on your back leg, causing a slice or hook... watch video
  • Most players shank by pulling the heel of the club at the ball when they should really be tucking their left elbow in and squaring the back of their left hand... watch video
  • Slices and hooks are created when your left elbow fails to point down throughout the swing, thus resulting in angles that turn the clubface at impact... watch video
  • Avoid turning during the golf swing to prevent back injuries and a reverse pivot... watch video

Starting Juniors in Golf There is no set age to start a child in golf; if they have an attention span and an ability to comprehend then they are ready to learn
Putting With An Arc Stroke Although many players believe that you can either putt on an arc or straight back and through, the putter shaft is attached to the head at an angle so this requires the club to travel on an arc
Hamstring Posture Stretch Many golfers can not get into a proper set up position and posture because their hamstrings are too tight to allow the straightening of the back, so before you tee off or practice work on stretching out your hamstrings so that you can work the golf swing properly around a straight back
