Where are you on your path to golfing success?
Are you all packed ready to take on the challenge, have you got the nessesary tools/skills?
Do you know where you want to go?
Do you know where you are right now?
Let me look at the first point, where are you now, well you probably really like golf, you would like to be better at it, you don`t have as much time as you would like to play or practice, you play once every two weeks, you might go to the range once a or twice a month.
You expect to play well and hit good shots, you get frustrated when you do not, this is a pretty good analysis of your game right now.
So how do you change, well first it is so important to really know where you are before you start on your journey of improvement, not where YOU believe or hope you are.
Please do not be embarrased or have an ego, be honest with yourself, I know its hard.
Are you making the right choices? If you are not getting better then NO you are not!
Step 1. Please see an expert, not a golfing buddy/ friend to help you, go to a PGA professional who has been trained and has researched the game over many years, to help your golf.
Step 2. See your swing on video, it will help you see things better, you pro will be able to explain to you exactly where you are now and show you how you can achieve where you want to be, playing better golf.
Step 3. Once you have your static alignments sound ie. Grip, Posture, ball position, alignment, which is not difficult, this will allow you to move with good motion. So its like anything Set -up for success not failure.
Step 4 You will need to understand how to move your body correctly during your swing, so its the Pivot that is a key component of the good golfer. Learn how to move. The club will follow.
Step 5 Yes you guessed it Practice, rehearse what you have been shown, to improve at anything you need to actually do it, sounds easy but it is not.
Finally, its a great time right now, to start learning or improving your golf, yes its cold, but if you start now, by the time spring arrives you will able to take advantage of the weather and pit your new skills against the course, and really enjoy your golf!
You can work on grip , posture, alignment , ball position, indoors, you can also use a mirror to help with the pivot.
All these things will help, good luck.
Hope to see you soon!
