I want you to play like a 10 yr old. A 10 yr old has no fear. He putts with no thought of missing. Has no complaints about speed or condition of greens. Does not dwell on poor shots or beat himself up. Relax and play fearless golf. It won't be perfect but will be more fun.
For all you golfers who hit the dreaded banana ball. See yourself playing tennis and hit a shot into the left hand corner of the court. What action did you use? What was the feeling or sensation you felt. It was a inside to square to inside. Putting right to left spin on the ball. The opposite of what you do to slice the ball or hit the tennis ball into the right hand corner of the court. Outside, cutting the ball putting left to right spin on the ball. Also when you go the range bring along a cardboard box (4"x4"x 24" long) line box toward target and place ball 1" from box a start hitting balls.If you don't have a box come by my shop and I'll give you an old shaft box. All over the top swings will hit the box. Best to put ball on tee and use a 7iron. Call me if you need verbal explanation or this works for you. Call: (509) 547-6461 and ask for Pat.
To buy new clubs or get YOURS customized?
When golf equipment manufactures and PGA Tour Pro's every year tell us how much better 2015 clubs are, why is it that PGA Tour Pro's scoring average or performance doesn't improve?
I don't believe golf equipment has made players better over the lasts 5 yrs. It didn't help Phil or Tiger make the cut January 2015 tournament. Did you see how the spin rate of Phil's driver helped him shoot 3 over.
Set make up, fitting and lessons are what golfers need. Not $450.00 drivers, $375.00 putters and $150.00 wedges.
Get your present clubs fit to you. Most likely your club length is wrong and set make doesn't fit your game. Save your money, play more golf and laugh at the bad shots!
