Forum: Instruction

This is the place to ask questions on the mechanics of the swing etc.

  1. Left hand instruction by a Left hand instructor

    Looking for left hand instruction by a left hand instructor. I am asking for a friend. He has had instruction before and it was a right handed instructor, maybe it was the instructor but the instruction seemed awkward to my friend. He is now looking for a left handed teacher in the Ottawa area....

  2. Golf Tip 10/09

    If your problem is pinpoint accuracy, then it's likely you hit a lot of greens, just well to one side or the other of your ultimate target, the hole. That means you're probably left with many a lengthy putt, the kind you're glad just to roll up close, tap in, and walk away with par. So if you can't...

  3. Kevin Haime Recommendation

  4. Golf tip 9/09

    At just about every 19th hole, you will hear how so-and-so drives the ball well over 300 yards every time he steps on the tee. And of course, they are all straight down the middle. Strange how you remember seeing this same player on the 400-yard 4th hole hitting his second shot from about 175 yards...

  5. The Technical Golf Swing

I like technical and I like biomechanics, psychology, physiology, geometry and science ... I'm wondering if anyone...

  7. Golf tip 8/09

    Probably one of the most common swing flaws is looking up before the ball has been struck. "Peeking" can ruin any shot, but most frequently plagues players hitting "finesse" shots -- a pitch over a bunker, a chip shot or a putt. And since even the slightest head movement can cause a muffed shot or...

  8. Why no run?

    My current driver of choice is the Titleist 10.5 905R with NV65 reg flex. And when i'm on it's a bomber. The problem is that there never seems to be any roll out of the drive.

  9. Golf tip 7/09

    The slice is possibly the most dreaded shot in golf. Most players who regularly hit the "Banana Ball" know little about it except that it wreaks havoc with their direction, steals from their distance and prevents them from seeing much of the left side of the fairway. Two Types of Slice There...

    Crisper Irons Typically, mechanical sloppiness will manifest itself in your iron play. Nothing dramatic perhaps, but greens in regulation seem to drop as scores start to rise. Everything may feel the same, but your medium- and short-iron approach shots aren't as crisp as they used to be. Over...

  13. Golf tip 2/09

    The Problem - You struggle with distance control from bunkers when the hole is clear across the green. The ball either checks up way short, or you skull it way over the green trying to carry it to the hole. The Fix - You need a lower flying shot that will run. Instead of an open clubface and...

    Fairway bunkers present a completely different challenge than do greenside bunkers. In a greenside bunker you want to hit the sand first and allow the ball to ride out on a thin wave of sand. When playing from a fairway bunker you want to hit the ball first, and to ensure that you've got to make...

    In golf, you can be challenged by a variety of difficult shots. Very rarely do you have a perfectly flat lie. During every round you'll face uneven lies, including uphill, downhill and sidehill lies, where the ball is either above or below your feet. These were written for a rightie, so just...

  16. Golf tip 3/09

    Faulty alignment can ruin your shot before you swing the club. Aiming the body somewhere other than parallel to the target makes a good swing bad and a bad swing worse. Examples: A good player with a solid swing gets sloppy and starts aiming right of the target. He can't figure out why his...

  17. Golf tip 1/09

    When players start missing short putts, they immediately blame their stroke when, in fact, the fault may be allowing for too much break. A putt of three feet or less usually doesn't have enough time to break more than a couple of inches before reaching the hole. If most of your short putts are...
