QUICK FIXES FOR GOLFERS

If you need help hitting the ball—

  • Slow your backswing and keep your head in the same place.
  • Shorten your backswing.
  • Smooth your transition to downswing and accelerate into the ball. Don’t move your head ESPECIALLY NOT FORWARD!
  • Turn, don’t sway.
  • Hit down onto the ball and hit the ground after hitting the ball.
  • To cure a slice, hit inside-out. To make this easier, when you address the ball, align your shoulders on an inside-out plane. (Sample your address, and check the line of your shoulders. If you slice, your shoulders probably aim left of your target…outside-in.)
  • Be conscious of your club face and time it to be facing your target at the moment of impact

If you need help lowering your scores—

  • See above list for ball striking help
  • Practice chipping and pitching the ball. This will help with your ball striking, and reduce your scores by putting you closer to the hole on short shots
  • Practice putting. “Drive for show and putt for dough” is more than a slogan…it’s the truth.
  • Before addressing the ball, stand behind it and choose the line you want to hit it. Then, as you address it, look, and confirm that you are actually aimed at your target.
  • Power golf is overrated. Leave your ego in your locker. Only hit easy shots that you KNOW you can succeed with. Forget Tiger Woods…he can hit any shot he wants. If you can too, join the PGA Tour.
  • 18 bogies score 90. Replace 9 bogies with double bogies and you still break 100. Forget birdies. Accept lucky pars. Play for bogey. It makes the game a lot easier.
  • Play within yourself. short straight ball striking no longer than 150 yard shots can score in the mid-80s
