Chipping Can Be Hard! This Tip Makes It Easy.

 

Chipping is simple.

OR…

At least it should be!

The amount of golfers that struggle with chipping is staggering. In my opinion, the main reason has nothing to do with technique per se, but tempo.

Most golfers that are poor chippers have poor tempo. They have stabby strokes.

So if your chipping could do with some help, here is what I suggest you do.

Get out your pitching wedge and practice swinging with good tempo. Click here to find out more.

To do this simply say “1” on your backswing, and “2” on your downswing and as you hit your ball.

But do this first without hitting a ball. Just get used to swinging back and forth with a “1”, “2” tempo.

Then when you’ve done that, put a ball in the way of your swing.

Make sure that you don’t change your tempo when a ball is in play. Just focus on your good tempo and let the ball get in the way.

If you do this, you’ll notice your chip shots will be better and more consistent.

The Short Game Improvement Program

This is How You Should Approach Every Putt

Below is a very important tip that will help you improve your putting. And as you know, anytime you improve your putting, your scores drop. This tip is from Jeff Richmond and Jeff has recently released a newly updated putting improvement program called: 5 Minutes To GREAT Putting. You can find out more about that by going here

Now here is the tip from Jeff on how you can improve your putting…

*Possible Putting by Jeff Richmond*

There’s times when you’re about to putt and you just feel that you’re going to hole the putt. You can’t describe why you feel that way, but you do. For most of us, that feeling does not come often enough.

But you can make that feeling happen more and more, and I’m going to explain how.

Now if you run across a really good putter you’ll find that they almost hole everything. If the ball doesn’t go in it will be very close to going in.

And if you got in their head you’ll find that they are trying to make everything they look at.

They don’t have thoughts about 3 putting or anything negative like that. Instead, they are focused on doing whatever is necessary to hole the putt.

Great putters believe they can hole every putt.

Do they hole every putt?

No.

But they believe they can.

And just because they miss some putts, it doesn’t stop them from thinking the next one is going in.

However, you just can’t go thinking before every putt…

“I’m going to hole this putt… I’m going to hole this putt…. I’m going to hole this putt.”

Because if you do that and you miss then you’ll quickly lose confidence and belief in your putting. But you can do the same type of thing without negative consequences when you miss. To do this you simply have to add two words to a positive statement and those two words are…

It’s Possible

I don’t know what you say to yourself when you get the feeling you’re going to hole the putt. It might be something like…

I’m going to hole this putt.

Or…

This ball is going in the hole.

And like I said… if you were to say that before each putt, you would quickly get discouraged when you miss. But if you add the words ‘it’s possible’ to statements like that, then you can use them before each putt to help you be more confident in your putting. For example, before every putt, you could say…

It’s possible I’m going to hole this putt.

Or…

It’s possible this ball is going in the hole.

See, every putt you face has the possibility of going in. So use that possibility to build up your confidence and belief every putt. If you do this and make it a habit then you’ll be a better putter long term.

And speaking about being a better putter… I have just launched a newly updated putting system that will give you the best chance of putting as good as a Tour Pro.

To find out more about that simply go here.

That’s a great putting tip from Jeff. The next time you play golf, give it a try. I’m sure it will help you to putt better. And as Jeff said, make sure you go here and check out his full putting improvement program to have the best chance of becoming a great putter.

The Putting Game Improvement Program

The Secret to Putting Like the Pros

It’s (your name here) with a simple tip that could transform your putting game for the better. This tip is from Jeff Richmond who is the creator of the 5 Minutes To GREAT Putting program that you can see here. So I’ll leave you with Jeff…

*Professional Putting Tip*

Today I’m going to give you a simple (yet very powerful) putting tip that could help you to save a lot of strokes every time you play.

One putting tip can easily do that. Just look at Rory McIlroy for example… his putting has been very poor of late, and then he makes a small change to his right hand putting grip and wins the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The more I look into putting improvement the more I think a lot of it relates to self-discipline, and here’s one big tip to help you with this.

Every time you watch golf on T.V. you see a ton of putting by the pros. And there’s one thing they all do that most amateurs and bad putters certainly don’t do.

Next time you watch golf on T.V. notice how at the end of the pros putting strokes they all hold their finish. It might be for a second or some even longer.

Then, the next time you play with your buddies watch their finish, and I bet you won’t see many hold their finish like the pros – UNLESS they are a good putter.

Instead, you’ll see lots of waving the putter after the ball is hit. Like they’re trying to control the ball somehow after it’s been hit.

It seems like a subtle difference but…

Good putter – Holds the finish Bad putter – Doesn’t hold the finish

Now if you’re a bad putter and you start holding the finish are you going to start holing everything?

Probably not.

But I bet you’ll putt better, and here’s why.

Good putters make good, confident strokes and hold their finish. They’re not trying to steer the ball into the hole.

Bad putters make steering type of strokes and keep trying to steer the ball into the hole after they’ve hit it.

At the start of this article, I said that the more I look at putting improvement the more I think it relates to self-discipline, and that’s especially true with this tip.

Holding your finish OR NOT is a habit.

If you want to improve your putting then make holding your finish a habit. To do this, simply every time you putt hold your follow-through for 3 seconds.

By doing this and making it a habit you’ll “program” yourself to make good strokes without so much concern from trying to get the ball into the hole.

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression that “trying fails”.

And that’s especially true with putting. If you try hard to steer the ball into the hole you’ll often miss. But if you make a good putting stroke and let the outcome take care of itself, you’ll often get better results.

Putting accounts for about 43% of every game of golf you play, and this month I’m going to help you more to improve your putting so you take strokes off your scores. It really is the quickest and easiest place to do that, so stay tuned.

The Golf Swing Speed Challenge Review

Faster Swing = Longer Drives: Golf Swing Speed Challenge Review

The Golf Swing Speed Challenge was designed by Alex Gairdner. Alex is a British sports scientist who designed this program to help himself to increase his swing speed. Alex has a lot of letters after his name (i.e. BSc(Hons) Physio, Acup. ACP, BSc(Hons) SpSc) I’m not sure what they all mean, but it appears he has a lot of credentials to design a sports fitness program.

But the thing I like about this is that Alex doesn’t only walk the walk but he talks the talk…in terms of results.

Alex has said that he created this program to help himself swing faster, and then he videod his swing speed before he started it and found his swing speed was 93.8 mph. Then 56 days after completing the program he retested his swing speed and found that his swing speed was then 114 mph.

As Alex reminds us, for every 1 mph of swing speed increase a golfer gains about 2 – 2.5 yards. Alex has used 2.2 yards to workout that he gained 44.3 yards in distance.

Now that’s impressive distance gains in just 56 days!

After learning about Alex’s personal distance gains I wanted to take this golf swing speed challenge for myself. When I did I found the exercises very easy to do, in terms of what they were. There’s no complicated exercises and you can do them all at home.

To be honest, because I hadn’t worked out in a while I found the exercises a bit tough on my body at first, but as I kept doing them it got easier and easier and I started to feel great. And really, I can’t fault the challenge there… it’s a good way to get me exercising regularly again.

I personally thought it was great how you could do all the exercises at home and you didn’t need to buy expensive equipment.

All the way through the challenge I was checking my swing speed and at first I didn’t notice any improvement, which I think was because my body was adjusting. Then after a couple of weeks I noticed about a 5 mph improvement and then I kept on getting faster and faster until at the end of the program I had a 14 mph improvement. That works out to be 30 yards added to my shots.

This has made golf so much more fun for me. I’m back to hitting par 5’s in two and getting a lot closer to the green on par 4’s. But one of the biggest benefits of going through this program is my swing feels so much easier. Even though I’m swinging faster it feels easier. Also I don’t feel in pain anymore when I’m swinging. And I’m swinging about 80 – 90% on my driver swing so it’s the same as I was swinging before, but it’s so much faster now.

I have done many other things to try to improve my swing speed like yoga, static stretches etc. but none of those things helped increase my swing speed. After doing this the results speak for themselves. So if you want to hit the ball further I can’t recommend this highly enough.

A golf driver swing that is lacking in power has a couple of issues that need to be addressed. A golf driver swing is slightly different than your other clubs…but needs to have the same sequence of motion and body position at impact to produce more power and distance of the tee.

Most golfers swing outside their physical capabilities resulting in lost yardage and accuracy.

Has this ever happened to you?

You step up on a long par 4 or a par 5 and tell yourself you’re going to get their in two. What did you do differently on the tee to achieve it? Did you swing harder? If so, what was your result?

The first issue to cover with your golf driver swing is your range of motion, especially on your backswing. Can you make a 90 degree shoulder turn with minimal tension? Most older golfers don’t even come close. The optimal position is a 90 degree shoulder turn, with approximately 45 degrees of hip turn. This requires a high level of core strength and flexibility. Shoulder flexibility comes into play just a bit also.

If you can’t get to this position, it doesn’t matter how hard you swing…you’re still not going to maximize your power and distance with your driver. Trying to get to that position when you body cannot physically get there will only cause muscle tension, which slows clubhead speed.

Secondly, getting behind the ball and staying behind the ball at impact is critically to maximizing power and distance. This cannot be achieved with an “out-of-shape” body. It’s a physically impossibility.

Even for a fit golfer, this is sometimes hard to accomplish on a consistent basis. On the downswing, it is critical the first move is with the lower body rotating (not sliding). This rotation of the lower body, while the upper body stays back (for only a split second) takes a ton of core strength. A weaker golfer would not be able to achieve this. He/she would come over the top early with the upper body, merely because they don’t have core strength to initiate the downswing with the lower body.

So how do you achieve a golf driver swing with maximum power?

Start working on your core strength and flexibility from a rotational standpoint, with a golf weight training and golf stretching routine. Every exercise and stretch you do should incorporate rotational movements. The primary movement in the golf swing is rotational, so why wouldn’t you focus on that in your golf training program?

This is the quickest way to longer drives!

Hitting more balls with the same body and the same swing won’t get you there! You’ve got to address the physical component to achieve the mechanical efficiency with your driver.

As soon as you do, you’ll be blowing by the other players in your foursome! This IS the approach you should take with your golf driver swing.

Golf Swing Improvement Secrets To Stop The Insanity

Golf swing improvement can be elusive for most golfers. I have read many articles and studies on the huge number of golfers quitting the game every year. They are tired of putting in the time, buying equipment, taking lessons, and purchasing every golf training aid on the market only to see no golf swing improvement.

You can’t fault a frustrated golfer who experiences the above and quits. Life is too short to spend 5 hours on a golf course and not enjoy it.

Let’s discuss why this happens!

First off, golf swing improvement should be approached from the inside-out. That means starting with your body. If your body has physical restrictions, you won’t ever be able to make a repeatable golf swing with any power or accuracy. It’s a physical impossibility.

You can try-and-try, but it won’t happen!

You body dictates your golfing ability. Like in any sport, raw talent is hard to come by and is only for a small percent of the athletic community.

Do you feel like you should be a better golfer? How many times have you walked off the course in disgust…knowing you should have played much better? This is a common occurrence and one that can be fixed quickly.

The right approach to golf swing improvement is one that looks at your current golf swing faults and the ‘physical’ reason behind it. I see this all the time. A golfer takes a lesson; the instructor tells the golfer what he needs to do; and the golfer can’t do it!

What a frustrating situation!

For every swing fault, there is an underlying ‘physical’ reason why it keeps happening.

Let me give you one of many examples to substantiate the above statement.

You are a slicer. That means you come “over-the-top” with your upper body. Do you want to know one of the many reasons why this happens?

Here goes!

You have poor core strength and flexibility.

If your body cannot initiate the downswing with the lower body, especially the hips rotating; it is because your core muscles are sending a message to your brain saying, “we can’t do this, so figure out another way (compensation) to get me back to the ball.”

Now the upside to this scenario.

You work on your core rotational strength and flexibility. You don’t hit more balls. You don’t add more swing thoughts to your swing. You don’t do drills at the range til your hands are bleeding. You just improve your core. That’s it!

The result?

You are able to initiate the downswing with your lower body, create and retain stored energy in your core area, and you not only stop your slice, but you add 30 yards to your drives!

That’s golf swing improvement the right way!

Again, this is just one example of a golf swing fault; and the cause and solution to eliminating it forever.

Now golf is fun again!

So when you think of playing better golf; take a new approach to your golf swing improvement.

End Golf Swing Confusion Forever!

We’re in the information age, and when it comes to the golf swing, this often means information overload!

As new golfers, we start out believing that there is one right way to swing, only to find out that there are just about as many swing methods as there are instructors.  It seems that the more we learn about the golf swing, the more our minds are filled with confusing, contradictory information.

Until now, if two respected golf professionals showed you two completely different ways to swing and both told you that their way was the right way, you would have been forced to make your best guess.

Maybe you would have chosen the information from the pro who was most well known, or the one you could play the best, or the one you listened to most recently.  Regardless, with no solid way to choose one way over the other, you would be forced to go from one method to the next indefinitely.

The good news is there is now a proven way to determine which swing method is best for you.  It’s simple.  It’s easy.  And, it works every time.

The secret is to start with impact!

While there are hundreds, or maybe even thousands of different swing methods, there is only one way the club needs to be at impact to hit a desired shot.  If your club is in that position, you’ll get the results you want.  If it’s not, you won’t.  It’s that simple.

Impact is often called the moment of truth because it’s the most important aspect of your golf swing.  If you want to find your best swing, and end swing confusion forever, the secret is to relate every swing change to impact.

For example, if you want to know whether one set-up is better than another, figure out which one allows you to swing your club into the ideal position at impact in the easiest, most comfortable, most powerful way.  If you want to know whether a flatter or a more upright backswing is best, notice which way makes it easiest for you to achieve the ideal impact position.

While there are numerous swing methods, there is only one way to swing that is the, easiest, most comfortable, and most powerful way for YOU!  Trust that the swing that feels best is the right way to swing and you’ll end swing confusion forever!
