Ultimate Golf Fitness Training Reviews:

1)I’ve been using workouts from this book for about a month now. I can really feel the difference! I’m more in tune with my core and mechanics. The workouts and illustrations are easy to follow. Fusser also covers other aspects of your life to help you achieve your goals. Kind of a “how to” of sorts. I’m looking forward to continued progress and success!

2)It’s time to replace your last-century voodoo concepts of training (and over training)for golf… of spending $500 a year on a gym membership. Frankly, I am convinced that Kai Fusser has written THE authoritative golf fitness book. It is clear and concise. That won’t stop others from exploiting this market, but this is the only book you will ever need on the subject. Put Fusser’s book along side Hogan’s “Five Lessons,” Watson’s “Getting It Up and Down from 40 Yards and In,” Stockton’s “Putt To Win,” and Rotella’s “Golf Is Not A Game of Perfect,” and you’ll have what are essentially the only golf books you’ll ever need to own.

Tips For Driving a Golf Ball

Tips For Driving a Golf Ball… learn to adjust to playing conditions and reduce your score.

Here are some good tips for driving a golf ball in tough conditions by Bobby Eldridge, head pro at PurePoint Golf.

Have you ever gone to play a round of golf and the first hole the wind is straight into you, the next two holes it’s blowing out of the right, the next two holes it’s from the left, then four holes in a row straight back into the wind, and then it gets worse?

The next three holes it’s blowing harder from the left. Then you get the shortest hole in the golf course downwind. And then, of course, you know the rest of the story, the next three holes, the longest holes in the golf course, dead into the teeth of it.

Well, those are tough driving days and you have to be prepared to react to it, because the wind isn’t going to stop just for you.

And when you’re playing well, I know you’re going to laugh, but it seems like every hole’s downwind. And when you’re playing difficult, it seems like every one of them is into a gale.

Remember this about tough driving days, this driver is not always the answer. How many times have you driven the golf ball 50 yards left of the fairway and only wished that you would have hit 6 iron off of the tee to get a better golf swing?

I’m not advocating that into the wind. However, the flatter the face on the golf club, the more the golf ball’s going to curve and the better your golf swing will be. And the windier it is, it exaggerates the curve if it’s going in the direction of the wind. So, this isn’t always the answer.

I have a 1 iron that I love, and I have driven with it many times on windy days, even into the wind, because it was important to find the golf ball in the fairway and not out of bounds.

So, don’t forget this is not the answer on rugged days. This is the answer when you’re driving the ball well.

When you’re not, it might be a 3 wood. Don’t give into the driver.

Timing In Golf Swing

Here`s a quick golf tip on the timing in golf swing from Bobby Eldridge, head pro at Purepoint Golf.

PurePoint Golf – Timing – Golf Instruction Lesson

I want to review something with you that I consider to be one of the, I don’t know, I think it’s one of the most misunderstood verbiage’s or terminology’s in all of golf.

It’s called timing. And it’s used a lot on television and in all the magazines, but they don’t explain to you what timing is and what it means.

So, let me give you a little golf instruction lesson, and then, that way you’ll start to understand the value of the word timing. Okay, here it goes.

Whenever you watch a good player hit a golf ball and or when you hit a good shot, this is what timing means. It was your ability to swing the arms down as your left hip moved out of the way, and gets out of the way for you.

Now, there are a couple of mistakes you can make. First of all, some people swing the arms down, and this never moves and you stay still. If you do that, you would be one that would come down and the club face closes quickly at the bottom of the hit.

If your timing is off because you didn’t move the bottom out of the way, the arms will cross over real quick.

On the other hand, most of the golfing public, when they swing down, their body moves out of the way and leaves the club behind them and open.

So, a little golf instruction lesson, if your timing is off and your body’s too quick, you’ll go to the right. If your timing’s off and your body’s a little too slow, you might hook it.

If your timing is on, all that’s saying is that you have the combination of the body, the bottom part of the body moving out of the way, as the arms swing down.

Again, the body moves, arms swing down. It’s just a combination of getting the arms and the hands to match up with the bottom part of the golf swing.

Thanks, and have a great day. I hope that golf instruction lesson helped.

The Golf Driver – How To Hit It Long And Straight

The Golf Driver – How To Hit It Long And Straight

Here is some straight forward golf driver advice from Nick Bayley, who has a very unique golf swing test that can be found at The Golf Swing Test.

Here`s Nick…

So often I have golfers come to me saying….

“I can hit my irons well but I greatly lack consistency with my driver. Can you give me some advice on what I need to do to hit my driver like my irons?”

If you resonate with that question then you’ll want to read this entire article now. Because in it I’m going to give you some simple tips to improve your driving off the tee. And the first thing we’re going to look at is your equipment. More specifically, I want you to look at the shaft in your golf driver.

You see, the shaft of any club is the most important aspect of the club that will affect performance. And if you have a shaft in your golf driver that is not suited to you then you’ll struggle to hit that club consistently well.

So when a golfer comes to me complaining about great inconsistency with their driver over their irons I routinely ask this question…

“Does your driver have a different shaft than your irons?”

And normally I get an answer back like this…

“Yes, but my irons have steel shafts in them and my golf driver has a graphite shaft in it. Although they are all regular shafts.”

Now what most golfers don’t understand is that because a shaft has regular on it does NOT mean it is the same flex as another brand of shaft that has regular on it. There are no standards as far as golf flex is concerned. So don’t ever assume that having the same shaft flex from two different companies means you essentially have the same shaft.

So my first advice to people that can hit their irons well but not their driver is to get the exact same shaft as is in their irons put in their driver. And 9 times out of 10 just doing this solves there driving problem.

Now in case that doesn’t solve your golf driver problem here are three more tips to help you to hit the ball better and further off the tee.

1. Before you take some full swings with a driver you should always warm up by doing some stretches. The golf swing is incredibly hard on the body and you’ll only do yourself damage by trying to swing a driver hard without warming up your muscles first.

2. If you tend to fight a slice with a driver you should tee the ball higher as this helps to promote a draw. Conversely if your problem shot with a driver is a hook you should tee the ball lower.

3. When you’re teeing up to hit a golf driver you need to take into account the shape of shot you’ve been hitting with the driver and then tee the ball up on the best side of the tee to allow for that shape.

For example, if you’ve been fading your driver (and other shots) and you’re faced with a long par 4 that doglegs to the left then you’re going to be in trouble if you leave your ball on the left of the fairway. So to give yourself the best chance of success you should tee the ball up on the side you most want to avoid. And in this case you don’t want to go left as you’ll be forced to hit a draw for your second shot and that’s not a shot you’re hitting well.

So with this in mind in this example you should tee the ball up on the left-hand side of the tee box so you’re aiming away from the left-hand side, and you should aim down the middle of the fairway. That way if you hit the ball straight you’ll be in the middle of the fairway. If you hit a fade you’ll be in the right hand side of the fairway and if you hit a little slice you’ll be in the right rough still with a good shot to the green.

You see, you’ve got to be smart when you’re teeing up your ball. And here’s a general rule to remember to help you do this…always tee up your ball as the same side as the trouble and aim away from it.

If you’re struggling to hit your golf driver well I’m sure if you put these tips into action you’ll hit your driver longer and straighter.
Nick Bayley is a professional golfer who has discovered just one golf swing fault that could be stopping YOU from ball striking consistency and success. But luckily for you, now you can take a simple 2 minute golf swing test to see if you have this swing fault or not. So don’t delay!

The Correct Golf Driver Loft

Choosing The Correct Golf Driver Loft

I`ll bet , like most of us, the last time you bought a new golf driver you hit a demo club at the range a few times, it felt good and you bought it.

This is how almost all of us buy new golf clubs. But let`s take a look at the driver. It is probably the most important club in the golf bag. Playing golf from the fairway is a lot easier than the rough and also, hitting a 9 iron to the green is a lot easier than hitting a 6 iron. That`s pretty obvious, so what`s the point?

The point is that most of us are not playing with a driver that has the proper loft to provide us with maximum distance and accuracy. The simple reason for this is that golf club manufacturers are not making drivers with the lofts that are correct for most golfers.


Here`s an idea of the range of lofts that we are talking about to provide optimal driver loft: (source: Golf Engineering)

The numbers below represent (A)Clubhead Speed (how fast you swing the golf driver), (B)Estimated Optimal Driver Loft (your ideal driver loft) and (C)Category (who should be using these lofts)


(1) 130-150…..4-7 degrees…..men long driving champs
(2) 110-125…..8-9 degrees…..men touring pros
(3) 95-105……10-11degrees….strong men & women
(4) 85-90…….12-13 degrees…most men golfers
(5) 75-85…….14-15 degrees…senior men & most women
(6) 65-75…….16+ degrees…..most women golfers


As you can see, most men golfers should be using a 12-13 degree loft with their driver, senior men and women even higher and we know that this is not the case.

Also, what this validates is the fact that the average male golfer is better of driving with his 15 degree three wood. We have known this for years but we really did not know why, now we do. It is all about the optimal loft! There are more factors that control golf driver distance and accuracy, other than loft, but for our purposes today, this is one variable that we can easily control.

Now, we know that we are not going to give up hitting the driver. The grip it and rip it mentality is too deeply ingrained in us to give up our driver. But, at least now we can give up trying to hit an 8 degree driver and maybe change to a more sensible 10.5 degree or, even better, a 12 degree driver. The fact is that the lower degree of loft has been working against us and we never knew it!

So, stop fighting gravity and starting using a loft that will provide you with the optimal launch angle. Hit your driver longer and straighter. Give it a try, I think you will like it.

Solid Iron Shots

Solid Iron Shots… Four Tips To Hit Quality Iron ShotsThe topic for my post today is golf iron shots. You have hit a good drive and now it`s time to hit a quality iron shot. There are many factors that come into play but, for today, we are going to review four (4) tips that will help us to hit quality iron shot and, in turn, lower our golf scores.

These iron shot tips will help you to go through the thought process that will produce quality golf shots. You will be amazed how quickly your golf scores will come down.

Just using some common sense can dramatically effect how we play and our golf scores, plus, did I mention, your enjoyment of the game!

Four Golf Iron Shot Tips

1. Stay within yourself.

Don`t try to hit your seven (7) iron one hundred and seventy (170) yards when your best seveniron shot only goes one hundred and fifty (150) yards. Hit the iron that will get to the target with a comfortable swing, no over swinging! Also, when you are determining the yardage for your iron shot, be sure to take into account the position of the pin on the green. By this I mean, even though you are standing at the one fifty (150) marker, you might be one hundred and sixty five (165) yards to the pin if the pin is at the back of a large green, or one hundred and thirty five (135) yards if the pin is in the front.

You don`t want to back off of your golf swing but you also don`t want to be grunting!

2. Know how far you hit each iron.

I know you have seen this and it really slows down play. What I am talking about is watching someone pacing of their yardage to the pin and you know, full well, that they have no clue how far they hit each iron shot. So, my point is, that we need to spend some time at the driving/practice range, to find out how far we hit each iron shot.

Now, we probably are not going to know how far each iron shot goes, to the yard, like the tour pros do but we can find out within a five (5) yard range.

There is nothing more frustrating than hitting a good drive and following that up with a well hit iron shot and the golf ball ends up ten yards short or long. If we expect to hit the correct iron shot, we need to know how far we hit each iron.

3. Play the shot that your lie will allow.

We need to survey our lie and determine how the lie is going to effect our iron shot. By this I mean, if we a playing summer rules, no preferred lies, the lie will dictate what kind of shot we have to play. If the lie is less than perfect, we need to adjust where we play the golf ball in our stance. With a poor lie, we need to move the ball back in our stance so that we will be able to make solid contact. You also need to adjust for downhill, uphill and sidehill lies.

In general, we need to adjust our stance to follow the contour of the fairway for uneven lies, keeping in mind that uphill lies will add loft to your iron shots (hit more club) and downhill will take loft off of our iron shots (hit less club).

4. Play the percentages.

Here`s a question. If the best players in the world aim away from some pins then should not we do the same? If the pin is on the side of the green near a bunker, water hazard or out of bounds, it may make sense not to try to hit directly at the pin but hit your iron shot to the safer part of the green. We have to measure, the percentages, our chances of pulling off a shot. The best in the world do it! So, next time you are getting ready to hit your iron shot, stop to think of what is your best percentage play. This alone will shave numerous strokes of your golf score.

Also, remember there is a right and wrong side of the green to miss on. You would prefer to miss the green on the side away from where the pin is placed on the green. This gives you the best chance to get up and down for your par, if you miss the green.
