Video Golf Tip | Play Golf In Short Bursts

I have often talked about playing golf for 40 eight minutes, more like other sports. That is concentrating for short bursts of time around each shot. One of the greatest lessons I ever got was early in my career. Joey Sindelar and were very good friends and I happened to be at the Bay Hill Tournament working on the practice tee with another player and Joey Sindelar was making the turn and yelled to me you got to come over and watch me, I am going to shoot 80. I looked at his placard and it said one over and wondered what is going on here. Joey hit a shot and ran over to the gallery ropes and started talking to me about the Celtics and the Lakers. Then he excused himself, hit another shot, came over and talked about where we were going to go to dinner. Hit another shot, came over to the ropes and talked to me again. How is your wife, what is going on at home? Eight holes went by and there was a little bit of delay on the last hole and he went seven under par. It seemed to me it is more reasonable to not be worrying about what your score is between shots. You aught to be preparing yourself by playing in short bursts, short intervals of playing golf for 40 eight minutes.

Chipping From Deep Rough Hit this similar to a sand shot with an open face, steep backswing but not much of a follow through
Thin and Topped Shots Thin/Topped shots are not caused by picking your head up but rather lifting your entire body, concentrate on keeping the same posture throughout the swing
Slicing: Downswing Many slices are caused because golfers start their downswing incorrectly, the correct downswing sequence starts with the lower body shifting weight from the right leg to the left leg, then the upper body follows
