Reduce Your Golf Training And Lower Your Score

Andrew Scott has developed a mental golf tip for improving the golf skills in less than 30 minutes and without practicing, reduce your golf training and lower your score.

He tested and tweaked the method over the last 6 months to what it is now.

Mental golf training can be 5-6 times more efficient than practicing on the driving range.

The new AmazingGolfMind subliminal mental audios focus on improving the subconscious mind. By listening 3-4 times a week you’ll improve your game much faster than hitting hundreds of balls on the driving range.

Here’s the free video, mental golf tip, what explains how subliminal mental golf audios work:

Proper Golf Stance

Proper Golf Stance… learn to set up correctly for good golf shots

I`m sure that you will agree that, in order to hit the golf ball at your target, you must be correctly aligned or in the proper golf stance.

This resource has made easier for you to get into the proper golf stance every time! They have devised a little teaching aid called “Set Right”  that will help you to get into the proper golf stance.

You have probably seen, or used the system yourself, golfers using two crossing clubs to check their alignment. This method is awkward and you never really know if you have the clubs set up properly. With “Set Right“ you can be sure that you have the proper golf stance.

“Set Right” is small enough to fit in your pocket or golf bag. It is something you can use every time you go to the driving range. After using it for a while, you will automatically get into the proper golf stance by developing the correct golf set up habits. “Set Right” is the first training aid guaranteed to get your foot and ball placement right so your alignment is correct and the ball finally goes where you want it to go.

This is a very handy golf tool and the best part is that it costs under $20.00 and comes with a 30 day money back guarantee.

Pro Hitting Golf Mat

Mat measures 48″(inches) x 60″(inches) Made of 100% spring crimped nylon material. It will not fade, bunch, weather or leave marks on your clubs.The mat is 1.125″ thick bonded to a 5/8″ thick polyethylene foam using a specially engineered urethane stabilizing layer. The foam is added for dimensional stability. You do not need special rubber tees. No more hitting off of a predetermined height of a rubber tee. Our mat will accept a real wooden tee which allows you to choose different clubs you want to hit at different heights. Rubber tees also give you a different feel because they obstruct your club at impact. Our mat gives you that on the course feel. Our dense fiber mat allows you to feel the difference on a fat shot because if you go too deep the thick fibers will slow your club head speed resulting in a fat shot. In practice you will learn to eliminate your mishit shots. Our competitors golf mat will “bounce” which will result in mishit shots. Our mat lets you hit down and through the ball for better practice. Made in the USA

Practice Golf Swing

Is Your Practice Golf Swing Better Than …Your Real Golf Swing?

This is an excerpt from the book … Golf Swing Eureka … by Jon Barrett

“Why is my practice golf swing often better than my real swing”?

When I understood the answer to this question it made a big difference to my golf swing.

How many golfers do you see on the tee making a nice free practice golf swing and then duff or slice the ball with their real swing?

It happens doesn’t it … it happens a lot.

Well … I came to realize that when I understood the journey that the golf club needs to take around your body then I also realized where so many amateur golfers were going wrong with the difference between their practice swing and their real swing.

You see when you understand that the golf swing is about technique not aggression then your body starts to work differently.

When you make your practice swing you remain relaxed and free moving. When you make your real swing you immediately start to tense the big muscles in your body particularly your back and shoulders.

Your brain starts telling you body ‘look guys if we want to hit this ball a mile then we need to put loads of effort it’ – WRONG!

Next time you swing – remember to keep your back and shoulder muscles relaxed so that your real swing is as good and as free as your practice golf swing.

Remember the proper and most efficient golf swing is all about technique not aggression.

The answer to this question lies in the way we think the golf swing works – we need to convince ourselves that the Pro Golfers swing works – Power without effort – and we too will follow their lead.

A good exercise to demonstrate that loose muscles work better than tense muscles is to try running down your garden with loose muscles then tense your muscles and try again – the difference is dramatic isn’t it and the golf swing is no different, we need to keep our muscles relaxed for them to work effectively.

Tensing prior to moving doesn’t help – you need to relax to let your muscles work properly at the right point in your swing. One of the main problems that generates this tensing motion is caused by the way many amateur golfers practice. How many golfers have you seen at the golf range who go straight for their driver and start trying to knock the ball out of the range?

Many I would guess. These golfers are simply trying too hard. Golfers should concentrate on accuracy on the range not distance i.e. how close can I hit it to a line from me to the target?

One way of practicing that takes out the need to try and knock the skin off the ball is to use plastic balls, you know the ones you can by from the golf shop. Once you start hitting these balls you quickly realize you can’t hit these balls 300 yards so don’t try to.

It results in you concentrating far better on technique. They also have the added benefit that you only need about 30 yards of space to practice in.

Perfect Golf Swing

Most every golfer is in pursuit of the “perfect golf swing”. Well, I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is most of us are unable to physically produce the “perfect golf swing” time after time, even if there is a perfect golf swing. The good news is that there is a method called the “Simple Golf Swing” that will allow “everyone”, whether they are a high or low handicapper, to build a simple golf swing to improve their golf game significantly and immediately!

The best part is that, since this is a system, you will be able to pick up your golf club, and if you follow the advice given, you’ll be hitting crisp, solid shots with great accuracy. You’ll have a completely new swing, and it will be simple and repeatable.

There are only 5 steps to “The Simple Golf Swing”. After you have learned and practiced each one of them, you’ll be hitting great shots… five (5) steps – that’s it. The five (5) fundamentals that will transform your game.

Here are the five (5) fundementals:

(1)The Set Up: The process for “setting up” a simple golf swing puts you in a position to go through the five steps of the golf swing, and come back to the starting position with power and control. The
combination of power and control is what every golfer strives for, and it all starts with a sound and repeatable set-up.

(2)The Mechanics of the Setup: The “Simple Golf Swing” methods to building a repeatable golf swing.

(3)The Grip: It’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get.

(3)Alignment: Good alignment will come with practice. “The Simple Golf Swing” system will dramatically improve your alignment.

(5)Timing: Most books on golf instruction go into great detail trying to describe the aspect of timing and transition. “Simple Golf Swing” does not do that because they are writing the book to simplify your swing, not complicate it.

There they are… the five (5) fundementals of the “Simple Golf Swing”. I can personally attest that The Simple Golf Swing will help you to build a repeatable golf swing. I am a student of the Simple Golf Swing and have that it has given me a foundation to create a golf swing swing that I can repeat.

I have been a low handicap golfer for a long time… way too long… and this system has given me a plan for completing the entire golf swing from start to finish.

Obviously, having a plan is a good thing and has allowed me… and will do the same for you… to improve my golf game by keeping my swing consistent.

Needless to say, I personally endorse the “Simple Golf Swing”. It may not give you the perfect golf swing but it will give you a fundementally sound… repeatable… golf swing that will make you ecstatic and your playing partners jealous.

Modern Golf Swing Technique

There is a term that commentators on television will often say. He came, or she came, up and out of the shot. When you hear that, it usually means that the ball has gone to the right.

So, let me tell you an example of what ‘up and out of the shot’ means, and then I’ll give you a golf technique that you can use for your own golf game.

In the downswing, both knees stay bent during the bottom of the hit. And as the golf club passes you, the arms have to get out in front of you before you can turn through.

Now, here’s an example of a player that comes up and out of the shot. As they start down, they get out in front and their body unwinds. And they get tall in the hitting area and the spine comes up and you’ll see a push to the right.

So, here’s the golf technique. If you push to the right and you think there’s a chance that you may be coming up and out of your shot, you’ll hit it weak to the right.

A great little practice is for you to keep a little more weight on your right side and let the arms pass you before you turn through.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Boost Your Energy With Smart Golf Nutrition

Maintaining your energy while playing is critical. A sharp drop in energy makes you feel tired, listless, and confused. That can cost strokes and can turn a good round into a bad. Eating the right snacks during a round helps. In addition to being good for you, they boost your energy level and increase your concentration. But you need to carry the right snacks with you.

Below Are 6 Good Snacks For Golfers:

1. Peanuts (or seeds)
2. Beef jerky
3. String cheese
4. Small apple
5. Home popped popcorn
6. Low carb bars

The key to maintaining your energy level while golfing is controlling blood sugar. That means avoiding foods made with refined carbohydrates (things made with white flour and/or sugars). Eating foods load with carbs causes your blood sugar to rise sharply, so you feel alert and energetic

But after awhile, your body adjusts and your blood sugar drops. So does your energy. Suddenly, you don’t feel as alert or as energetic as you did before. Instead, you feel tired, irritable, and confused. The carbohydrates are backfiring, causing your blood sugar to tank.

Eating the right snacks, however, levels off your blood sugar and boosts energy. Good snacks contain no refined flour, sugar, or trans fats. Trans fats are found in food made with hydrogenated oil, processed foods, and shortening, which is used in all most all baked goods. Snacks like peanuts or sunflower seeds, beef jerky, or string cheese provide a quick boost of energy during a round. Low carb bars do, too. But avoid them if they’re made with hydrogenated oil.

Planning ahead also helps maintain blood sugar. Eat a balanced portion of protein and fat before playing. Add some carbohydrates in the form of whole foods—whole grains, vegetables, or fruit—and you’re good to go. This combination stabilizes your blood sugar and energy levels as well. When combined with snacks, the combination is the right way to go.

How To Hit Good Wedge Shots

When you’re within 20 yards of the goal in American football—the Red Zone—you must score. If you don’t, your team’s offense failed. When you’re within 40 yards of the green—8-iron, 9-iron, and wedge distance—the Scoring Zone—you also must “score.”  Put another way, you must drop the shot as close to the hole as possible, leaving you an easy putt. If you don’t, you’ve cost yourself a birdie.

Obviously, the more birdies you make, the better your score and your golf handicap. But before hitting from this distance, you must answer six critical questions. Answering them improves your chances of dropping it close significantly. In this article we’ll discuss these six critical questions and provide golf tips on how to hit them better, improving your chances of collecting more birdies.

1. How Far Do You Hit Each Club?

Dialing in your short irons is mostly about distance control. In other words, you must know exactly how far you carry each club on the course, if you want to hit it close. Distance control is what teachers focus on in golf instruction sessions. If you don’t know how far you hit each short iron, go to the range. Practice making normal and hard swings. Get a feel for just how far you hit each club using each swing.

2. How Do You Hit Each Club?

Direction control is also vital when hitting short irons. So in addition to getting a feel for distance when practicing at the range, track your tendencies with each club. Do you draw or fade the shot? When you swing harder, do you pull or push the ball? Find the answers to these questions on the range first, so you’re not educating yourself on the course. Keep them in mind when playing a shot within the scoring zone.

3. What Kind Of Swing Do I Make?

Some weekend golfers shorten their swings when hitting short irons. Or, they ease up. This leads to bad shots. Take your normal swing and hit through the ball in the scoring zone. Hit them just like they teach in golf lessons. If you need more distance, don’t swing harder. Take an extra club. And don’t try to hit the ball really high. You may lose control of the shot. If you don’t hit these clubs well, take some golf lessons and practice at the range. Also consult golf tips on hitting them.

4. Where Do I Want To Hit This Shot?

Directional accuracy demands that you aim correctly. When you’re practicing with these clubs on the range, work on alignment, too. Begin every shot by standing behind the ball. Then follow your routine. In addition, picture an imaginary line from your long distance target to an immediate one a few feet in front of the ball to the ball. Align your club to the target line and the ball. Then, align your body parallel to the imaginary line.

5. What Are Your Conditions?

The best short iron players monitor their conditions—their sate of mind and their physical condition—on every hole. Your conditions really matter. If you’re angry or pumped up, you’ll hit the ball longer than you normal. If you’re tense or tight, you may hit it shorter.  compensate for your condition. Also, track how you hit the ball under the various conditions.

6. What Are the Playing Conditions?

Like your personal conditions, playing conditions matter as well. What type of lie do you have on the course? How firm is the green? What is the wind doing? Is the green above or below you? The answers to these questions have a major bearing on the shot. Run through them before you hit any shot.

The last thing you must do before hitting a shot in the scoring zone is remind yourself to never short-side yourself. Never miss a shot to a spot that gives you no green to work with coming back. You want to be aggressive in the scoring zone, but be smart about it. Follow this cardinal rule and you’ll be glad you did.

Answer the questions listed above before hitting a short iron and you’ll make more birdies. Make more birdies and you’ll not only trim your scores, you’ll also cut your golf handicap by several strokes. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

How To Hit Fairway Woods

How To Hit Fairway Woods… reap the benefits of mastering the three wood

Mastering The Three Wood

By: Jack Moorehouse How To Break 80

The shorter your approach shot to the green, the better your chances of hitting it in regulation (GIR) and making par. The number of greens hit in regulation is a telling statistic – as I’ve explained in my golf tips newsletter. Why…because players who hit a lot of greens in regulation tend to have lower golf handicaps. Those who don’t tend to have higher golf handicaps.

The 3-wood is a great club for aggressive players. It’s also a great club for senior players who may have lost some flexibility and power over the years, but can still play well. The 3-wood is the second longest club in your bag, so it can be hard to hit for some. Hitting a crisp 3-wood from a tight lie is especially challenging, as I tell students attending my golf instruction sessions, no matter how good you are.

Used In A Variety of Situations

You can use the 3-wood in man situations. Since it’s shorter than the driver, it’s easier to control, so you can use it off the tee on tight fairways. Using the 3-wood ton the tee may cost you some distance, but it increases your chances of hitting the fairway. In fact, some players who can’t hit a driver hit a 3-wood off the tee instead. Players also use the 3-wood to chip with when on the fringe, in a fairway bunker if the bunker’s lip is low, and on long par-3s when there’s a head wind.

But the 3-wood is used mostly off the deck on par 5s, when you need a good second shot. Another common use of the 3-wood is on long par 4s, where you need a long second shot to reach the green. Hitting a good 3-wood there can put you on the green in two, something neither a long iron nor a hybrid can do. If you can master the 3-wood off the deck, you can save a lot of strokes.

Sweep The Ball From The Fairway

Unlike irons, which require a downward blow, the 3-wood (and other fairway woods) need a sweeping motion that strikes the ball as the clubhead moves parallel to the ground. Below are five keys to hitting the 3-wood:

1. Keep your weight balanced
2. Position the ball opposite your front heel
3. Keep you head and body behind the ball
4. Pull the club through with your lead hand
5. Extend your arms on the follow-through

To hit the 3-wood off the deck, you must take a wide stance similar to that used for a driver. Position the ball opposite your front heel or in some cases, slightly back from this position, and your weight balanced comfortably on the balls of your feet.

Start your swing on a low path that almost skims the grass to replicate the shallow path you want to take on your downswing. Keep your back shoulder level and pull your right hand (left for left-handers) through with your other hand. Above all, stay behind the ball after impact. Brush through the ball and extend your arms toward the target on the follow-through – something a lot of players I find in my golf lessons must work on.

Not Designed For High Shots

The 3-wood is designed to hit a line drive type of shot. But you don’t need to feel that you have to help it get the ball in the air. The 3-woord has more than enough loft to drive the ball forward for distance. If you need to hit something with more loft, use the 5-wood. It provides less distance but more height than the 3-wood. In the right circumstances, the 5-wood can be just as effective as the 3-wood.

The 3-wood is a great club in the right hands. It’s not as versatile as a hybrid, but it’s more versatile than the driver. Don’t be afraid to hit it. Used wisely, it can set you up for short shots into the green on par 5s or serve as the club of choice off the tee. If you’re serious about improving your game, master the 3-wood. It will shave strokes from your scores and your golf handicap.
