Pyramid – Long Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! The question almost every beginning golfer asks is “What do I need fourteen clubs for?”. Most seasoned golfers can probably give an elaborate answer to that question and talk about loft and how different clubs have different purposes. On the other hand they are usually not using all their clubs themselves, not on the range and not on the course, although they have the full equipment. People tend to stick with their favourite clubs once they got comfortable with them. The more clubs you are versatile with, the more shots you [...]

The Laboratory – How To Get Out Of The Sand In Style

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Let‘s go back to the bunker. Unfortunately you will find your golf ball more than often in a difficult lie in the bunker. As if hitting the bunker would not be troublesome enough. But only few golfers actually work on their sand play. It is somewhat of a red rag to them and yet they do not want to put in the work to change that. But with just one long practice session of a couple of hours you can learn so much in the bunker. Just treat it [...]

Don‘t Fight Your Golf Personality

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! There is a saying that you cannot hide your personality in golf. I think it is true. Golf may be not as loud and fast as other sports are, but you get to know all kinds of different characters. That is for sure. But have you ever asked yourself what your own golf personality is? Are you true to yourself on the golf course or are you pretending to be someone you are not? Some players just love to talk a lot and socialize with others on [...]

Money Ball – Great Team Golf Format

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! This game is most fun when you are playing in flights of three to four people in a small tournament, as money ball is a team versus team competition. The premise of the game is that each team has a special ball, the money ball, it has to bring through all eighteen holes without losing it. The game is also sometimes called Lone Ranger, Pink Ball, Devil Ball and many names more. On each hole one player of each team has to play with [...]

Circuit Training #3 – Long Game Golf Training Circle

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! I think circuit training is a great way to improve effectively, not only in golf but every sport. Take a short break of 10 to 15 seconds between exercises and do the cycle at least two times in a row except for the warmup. Of course you can do more rounds if you want to and are not too tired. This time we will focus on technique and strength. You do not need any golf balls and can do this at home. 5 min – Warmup: Loosen up your [...]

Take Another Look in the Mirror – Improving Your Putting Stroke With a Mirror

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Putting technique seems to be the most diverse. Sure there are also all kinds of different swings, if you look at the long game. But whenever I am playing golf I often meet or see somebody taking an approach to putting that I have not seen before. Well, whatever works I think to myself then. But I also believe that there are fundamentals to putting that should not be messed with. Like there are with the full swing. One of those fundamentals is the setup. In no other part of [...]

Regular as Clockwork – Playing With Tempo in Your Golf Swing

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Proper tempo and rhythm are essential for a good golf swing. As with many things, in golf there is not one right way to do it for everybody. But there is a way that suits you and your game, for sure. I think tempo and rhythm can be learned best by experimenting with counting in your head and music. You have probably seen and heard how dancers count the beats when they are working on a new choreography. Today you will try a similar thing for developing rhythm in your [...]

TagTeam – Team Golf Format

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Team formats are a great way to enjoy a round of golf. Even in the professional area team formats are common, like in the famous Ryder Cup Tournament. Tag Team is no difference and makes you think about tactics and strategies that go beyond a usual round of golf. This format is being played two versus two. Each player also needs a stop watch. At the beginning of the game all players settle for a specific time for each hole. The easy way is to the same time on every hole. [...]

Get a Grip! – Long Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Most beginning golfers are being shown all the different ways to grip a golf club. The ten finger grip (baseball grip), the Vardon overlap grip and the interlocking grip. The funny thing is that almost nobody actually tries all the different grips to see if they work for them. The usual argument is that no professional player uses a baseball grip and most are using the Vardongrip. That is true. But it is probably also true that you are not a professional golfer yet. And I think there are things [...]

Recovery – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Most of the time your shots will not come out exactly like you intended. Even if you were one of the best players in the world, you would still face recovery shots and deal with difficult lies. As I always say, golf is a process and sometimes you just face more difficult situations than other times. The good thing is that you can be prepared. If you take a look around on your local course, you will probably find no one who is practising shooting out of the rough or [...]
