Video Golf Tip | Tiger Takes Lessons Too

There are so many thing to talk about when we discuss Tiger Woods, the greatest player of his generation and perhaps the greatest player of all time. One thing that is not discussed much is the teaching that Tiger has had. He has had a teacher since he was a little boy, his dad Earl Woods always wanted him to have top teaching. At first he had a guy named Rudy Durant, who happened to be a tremendous person in Tiger's life. He encouraged Tiger, he went out and played with him, and he made golf fun for a young Tiger Woods. From the age of about three to eleven. Then he had John Ensomo who took him through the real formative years of instruction, from eleven to eighteen, and you do not hear much about John but he really built the fundamentals of Tiger's swing. Once you get to fifteen, sixteen, seventeen and play a lot of golf your swing is not going to change all that much. You can go back and look at Tiger Woods film and you can immediately recognize the Tiger Woods of today. Then he went to Butch Harmon, a really top notch great teacher who brought him on to the real stage and really helped him with so many things he learned from Claude Harmon, one of the great teachers of all time. Then recently, starting in 2002, he moved to another teacher Hank Haney, trying again to improve his golf swing. Now the interesting thing is that Tiger worked with an instructor and he always did. That is something that I think we should all consider when you think about taking lessons. Should I take a lesson? Well the greatest players in the history of golf, Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, took a lot of lessons and did a lot of work with their teachers.

Analyze Your Impact The only way to have a proper impact position is if the back of your left hand is square to the target at impact
Fat Shots: Causes and Cures Fat shots are caused by either too steep a plane (slicers) or to shallow an swing (hookers)
One-Plane Downswing The one plane downswing you want to turn your core as you are throwing your arms across your body. This creates tremendous power at impact and without the timing required in the two plane downswing.
