Intermediate Tips ::
Many beginners man-handle the club and do not allow it to do
the work and swing. They end up having more planes than Lufthansa!
To generate speed, power and accuracy you need to allow the
club to do it's job and swing freely and at the correct angle.
A club that is allowed to swing freely will remain in balance
and on-plane more. A great drill is to take the correct grip
and posture. Now put your feet together and grip the club lightly.
Simply swing the club trying to keep your balance. You should
feel like the club is light and in balance and the wrists hinging
back and through. Then gradually widen your feet and let the
body get pulled around by the swinging of the club. Try this
and decrease those planes to one! 10 minutes before you play.
You take a lot more shots in a round of golf around the green
than with the long game. If you hit it poorly, you can make
up for it with a good short game. If you hit it well and your
short game is good you can shoot some great scores. So it is
important that you practice them just before you play. Get yourelf
tuned into the green speed and your landing areas before you
play. Hit ten bunker shots, pitches to various distances, chips
and putts of various lengths. You will be ready to play and
take it low as a result.
