Stop Hanging Back in the Golf Swing

I played a lot of golf last week. I was lucky enough to get 72 holes in Thursday-Sunday. Had some mixed results out there. At my home course I often struggle with the tee shot on the ninth hole. For some reason, I always decide its a good idea to hang back and slice the […]

Addressing Over the Top in the Golf Swing

Last week was a really tough round for me. I shot 86 but was really not happy with the way I hit the ball. The front 9 was 46 followed by a 40 coming in. My course is only 9 holes so a 6 shot discrepancy between the front and back bothers me. My issue […]

5 Single Leg Strength Exercises for Golf

Posted by & filed under .

One thing that I have worked on a lot with my golf swing this year is staying balanced in my swing. Golfers need to be able to stay balanced to hit the ball well. Falling out of a swing requires great hand eye coordination to hit the ball remotely OK. There is a huge misunderstanding […]

Should you Drink Coffee before Golf?

Posted by & filed under .

Personally, I do not like drinking coffee right before playing golf. And I love coffee. Every time that I have it on the way to the course, I do not like the way that it makes me swing. I feel like I rush, swing too hard, and move too quickly with the club. The battle […]
