Pitching to Targets – Improve Your Pitch Shots Fast

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! Time and again people seem to forget that golf is a target game, when they are practising.

Pitching Trajectories – Learn To Control Your Pitch Shots Like a Pro

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! When you are able to control the trajectories of your pitches you have more control over the roll of the ball after it lands, too. This makes your pitching more accurate. Most golfers practice one pitch shot with one trajectory, but neglect the things they are hopefully doing on the range. You should always have a target and try to produce a shot at will, not at random. If a shot behaves exactly like you imagined it and it is on target, you know that you have made a good [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Chipping Into Buckets – Short Game Golf Lesson

A new lesson from my book "120 Timeless Golf Lessons" will be posted daily! With chipping touch and feel plays an important role because you generally do not want the ball to stay where it lands. There are usually two components to a chip. On the one hand the landing spot and on the other hand the roll of the ball after it lands. It is the combination of the two that makes a good chip. A common mistake is to focus so much on technique and coming close to the flag that the landing spot is too near to the hole. I [...]
