  1. I agree 100% - golf is definitely not one-size-fits-all and you have to find what works for you!

  3. Hey guys! Swing path huh? Here's my suggestions, although I do think that swing path is over-taught and ultimately a bi-product of higher level movement patterns. 1. Get Your Swing On Video ASAP (at 300 frames per second or higher if possible). It's always amazing to me how much feel can differ from reality, and you can identify the real cause of your problems rapidly. 2. Understand Ball Flight Laws. Turns out that ball flight can (and often does) lie. There is more than one way to hit a push, cut, fade, hook, pull, draw, or straight shot. Contrary to years of incorrect teaching, it's now been scientifically proven that face angle actually plays the major role in determining the direction that the ball takes off in, while swing path in relation to face angle is what determines the spin direction. It's the opposite of everything that's been taught for decades. 3. Research Early Extension. I've seen a lot of students who think they are coming too far inside and getting "trapped" are actually victims of this little known swing fault. Here's some more info. Cheers! James
  4. Gotta love seeing Freddy back on top!!

      It's like Rory said at Augusta "He's just cool"!

  5. Has anybody mentioned elevation in this thread yet? I've found that my irons carry about 10-15 yards less at sea level than they do at 3,000 feet above!

  8. Great suggestion! Something to keep in mind, however, is that most yoga instructors don't do any sort of evaluation before providing you with stretches / poses / exercises. Everybody has their own unique physical limitations, and if the instructor does not understand these they will often have their students doing things that lead to injury. As long as you are aware that yoga is not a "one size fits all" method I think it's fantastic, and the benefits can be huge when it is done properly. PS - the same principal applies to golf lessons...
  9. The absolute best 10-minute warm-up I have found is in this book: http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Conditioning-Golf-Sports-Series/dp/0736067795/ref=dp_ob_title_bk It's easily worth the $15 IMO!
  10. Hey guys! Klller questions I'm so glad that this thread finally got some action. Regarding why warming up with a weighted club is a bad idea - watch this video for some killer insight. (The golf stuff starts around 4:30) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_vR8U_KrhY&feature=player_embedded#! I'll be back later with more!!
  11. Good advice from the boys! I would add that whenever you have a crazy lie like that, make sure you are using a club that you feel comfortable with, and take a 3/4 swing. You're not going to be hitting any miracle shots, so make a conservative plan that you feel confident with. Club up, choke down, and make a nice controlled swing.
  12. Take them into the pro shop and crumple up a piece of paper. Then get a wastebasket and ask them to throw the paper into the wastebasket. After they complete the task, ask them if they thought about how they were going to move their elbow or when they were going to release their grip on the paper, or if they just looked at the wastebasket and threw it in. That sometimes helps get the idea across.
  13. Happy Open Week everyone! Be sure to check out our Facebook page for a killer giveaway!!

  14. I totally agree - I think a lot of right handed people would do better off golfing left handed because of the dominant hand issue.
  15. Hey Boz - do you have a website for your golf balls? Thanks! James
