  1. Hey y'all. With the off-season coming up, I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on lessons. I'm curious what kind of questions would be good for me to ask potential pros? I've never had any lesson before, am about a 16 hcp, and live in Michigan, where winters are coooooooold... I've gotten a list of potential instructors from MGS and coworkers, just trying to whittle it down from here.

  3. Hey All - Yeah the ads on GC may seem a little weird (and, yeah, Gary McCord may endorse anything to make a buck), but ..... on other forums and on Amazon this program seems to have gotten a lot of favorable reviews.... So... Has anyone tried it? They're running a Black Friday special on their website, valid through the weekend. Thanks!
  4. So, it may be a little rant-like but I want to improve as quickly as possible without going in circles so I thought I'll ask for an opinion here. Went for my first lesson - as I've started struggling with 2-5 irons for some reason, so instead of the usual 2h spent on pitching and chipping - we spent some time on going back to basics with the swing. My impact position was still pretty solid, the body works 'okish' but i wasnt happy with the contact on shots. So after a few shots the diagnosis was - I'm laying off the shaft too much. I am consciously doing it, as I've got a fade and want to avoid having a slice. So I've been told that the hands want to go where the grip is pointing. Which most of the time I'd agree with but I like to have a certain 'feel' that helps me with timing a lot and not coming into the ball steep like hell. We worked for a while on it, to set the club shaft basically parallel to the target line. The contact is a bit better, but im back to hitting slices. Anyway, took it to the course, it wasnt the worst or best. I played fairly ok. And then went for a lesson just out of curiosity with a different guy at a different place as with my current one - seems my long game has stopped progressing/been stagnant for a while. And he basically turned 180 degrees, said my shaft is too steep, that it should be pointing at about 2o'clock at the top of the swing etc... Literally the exact opposite of what I was working on. Also - after that lesson I went to the range, and could not hit the ball for about 40-45 minutes. I felt like I've wasted £70. But then 2 opposite opinions... Which one is right? How the hell am I supposed to find a coach to trust? I have the aspiration to get to scratch within a short period of time. So yeah... Kind of bummed.

  5. Greetings from Grand Rapids, MI. This is my first post....I am excited that I stumbled across this site. Thank you for all the great content! Hey, does anyone have any recommendations for a fun (2-3 day) golf school/lessons located in the South/West/Southwest? My group of girlfriends are interested in getting out of frigid Michigan in February. We want fun, but also want to improve our game, as well. Thinking AZ, CA, TX, FL....warm and dry!
  6. Hello to all. I'm Mike and I'm starting back playing golf after a 7 year break and have been amazed at all the new kit thats available. Yet, if you go into golf superstore, you still get the same sales folk waffle.. Just had first lesson and feeling pretty good and motivated.. Using my golf as a way to maintain both physical and mental health. its a great game to do this
  7. I'm not playing today due our first real cold front of the season. Windy too. So, I've been thinking about this past year and my golf game specifically. What did I accomplish? Where did I fail? What can I do differently in 2016 to better my game, etc, etc. Thinking, thinking. In January 2015 I decided I'd make a real effort to improve my game. How was I going to do this you ask? Three ways that I figured would certainly help. 1. Start taking lessons/coaching - more focused practice. 2. Drop a few pounds and improve my diet. 3. Start and maintain a weekly stretching program. Lessons/coaching - In February I took my first of 6 lessons so far this year. I worked with a local PGA Pro and occasional Champions Tour player. From the start we discussed what my objectives were and how we'd get there. In a nut shell I didn't need to make any drastic swing changes. I already had/have a decent swing. We worked more on some fundamentals and minor changes. Such as... ball position, alignment, where on the handle I grip the club (I know what you're thinking*), shot shaping, short game, etc, etc. I'll rate my lesson/coaching experience as a 10. Did it improve my ball striking and scoring? Yes. Defiantly and rather quickly. I'm now thinking of stepping things up for 2016. Right now I'd like to explore working with my Pro twice a week through the first 6 months of 2016 then once a month thereafter. Diet/weight control - Last January 2014 I went on the Eat Less by Plaid diet and dropped 15 pounds. I've continued to practice my method pretty much but gained back 5 pounds in 2015. I'll refocus starting in January 2016 and shave those 5 pounds quickly. I rate my success this year a 7.5. Stretching program - In 2014 I purchased a golf specific stretching program by Roger Fredericks. I've got to tell you; I've been pretty much a complete failure for two years with the program. The best I did was in 2014 when I worked it for 3 months and quit. Just as results were starting to show. Dumb. So... once again beginning in 2016 I start again. Let me say, it's not the program it's me. The program is very good and simple. And it doesn't take much time to go through each day. At home. Perhaps 20 minutes? But it will work. I'm determined to get stretched out this year. I believe this alone will do wonders for my game. Your game too. I rate my stretching as a failure. 0. So there you have it guys. My goal this year was to get my handicap down to a 5 or less. I don't think I'm going to make it unless I get to practice/play more before year end. Hopefully, I'll maintain my current 6. *my instructor at my first lesson had me grip down on the club. I now grip/hold the club with my left hand about1” to 1.5” below the butt end. (I play right-handed) I used to hold the club with the butt slightly resting on the meat portion inside my left palm. Now the butt extends slightly past my hand when gripped properly. My instructor said, “This is how pros hold the club.” Well that's for me. Take a look on TV sometime and you'll notice it. This alone made more noticeable and immediate improvement in ball striking than most any other thing we worked on all summer. Try it.
  8. Last week, Tom Watson, released the second edition of his Lessons of a Lifetime. Both Watson releases are well organized and produced by Terry Jastro. Jastro brought you instructionals from Nicklaus, Harmon, and Mickelson, he does a great job with them. This second release, Lessons of a Lifetime II, is a more advanced instructional and is basically a compliment to the concepts that didn't make the first series. An appendix for more accomplished players, if you will. Tom Watson, 2.0. This second release comes in two varieties. For $50, you can get both DVD's (Lessons of a Lifetime I & II). If you already bought the first DVD last year, or just want the new release, it's half the cost at $25. I am a sucker for golf instructionals, and have watched them all. I mean, I always pick up something each time I watch, and it's probably as close as you'll ever come to receiving a lesson by these guys. I am a chop, and I need to hear it. An interesting stat I heard was 94% of golfers between 10-19 handicaps (which I am guessing most MGS readers fall) said Watson's series improved their game. For a fraction of the cost of a golf lesson, I believe you get a great value in this series. PRESS RELEASE: ------------------ TOM WATSON RELEASES NEW INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO TOM WATSON LESSONS OF A LIFETIME II Westwood, Kansas - Renowned professional golfer and World Golf Hall of Famer Tom Watson has announced the release of over 20 new lessons for his very popular and successful Lessons of a Lifetime DVD set. "I felt it was time to provide further instruction in areas not just about hitting the shots, but also about the mental approach of playing the game," says Watson. "One of the many great things about golf is that it can never be mastered. Sure you can have a good run of play, but sooner or later the wheels will come off. I've been experiencing the game for half a century, and I promise you I'm still learning." Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime was released in 2010 and has become one of the best-selling golf instructional video programs of all time having sold over 70,000 DVD sets in 5 languages in over 40 countries. In extensive surveys conducted with buyers, 88% said the program had improved their game and 79% rated the program as excellent. The new lessons cover many advanced topics, including pre-shot routine, the importance of the bottom of the arc, head movement, how to benefit the most with your time on the practice tee, handling pressure, the 40 yard wedge shot, controlling trajectory on chips, chipping with a putting set up, several putting lessons and instruction for kids and seniors. These new 2014 lessons are being sold separately and also combined with the original 2 disc Lessons of a Lifetime program. Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime II With New Advanced Lessons (3 discs and a 20 page booklet) will have a MSRP of $49.95. Tom Watson Lessons of a Lifetime II: The New Advanced Lessons (1 disc and a 4 page booklet) will have a MSRP of $24.95. These DVD programs are available for sale at TomWatson.com, Amazon - U.S., Canada, U.K., Japan and select golf and sporting goods retailers. Both programs are can also be purchased by telephone at 800-993-5589.
