Broom Broom Broomstick – Long Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! It is funny how working away from the course using every day items can help you to improve your golf swing. It is somehow counter-intuitive how not hitting any balls can actually help you make better contact. Many people believe that beating balls is a great thing to groove their swing. There are other people who think and talk about how they want to improve their swing with dedicated practice. But in the end they are hitting one ball after the other on the [...]

Miss The Forest For The Trees – How To Shape Your Shots

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Hopefully you have already worked on shaping your shots before. I think even beginners can learn a lot about swing mechanics, if they just try to curve some balls into different directions for some time. The classic situation for a hook or a slice you can read about in many golf books is being in front of a tree. Although you are very rarely inthose situations and most players are better off by just chipping the ball into a better position, this is ideal [...]

Choke Down – Long Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! For some shots you choke down on the club, e. g. different chip shots. This is not only necessary for the proper technique, but you gain more control, too. Because your hands are closer to the clubface, it gets easier to control it. Some players like Anthony Kim choke down on all their clubs when doing their full swing. He does so because he learned to play with clubs that where too big for him in his childhood. But he did stick with it throughout his whole career although he [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
