Golf Tip of the Fortnight
Satirical Tip for the Obstinate
Though the admonition "Don't try to kill the ball!" has been repeated since the beginning of time, or at least since the beginning of golf, it appears that some individuals have a rogue neuron misfiring somewhere in their gray matter
and simply can not stop themselves from swinging hard. Gee, I hope they don't have a similar problem with the accelerator pedal in their car.
Perhaps they think that if [insert swashbuckling Tour pro's name] can swing hard, then that must be the answer for them, too. But unless their golf swing fundamentals, balance and athletic ability are as good as the named golfer, they just plain can't. (Well, I suppose they can; after all, it's their game.)
Rather than give up on these neuronally afflicted souls, I will offer the one tip that may at least increase the odds
(however slight) of their success. Here's the tip: If you're going to swing hard, at least make sure that you simulate what you plan to do, as closely as possible, in your practice swing(s) before you hit the ball. Don't take
a smooth practice swing and then jump out of your shoes when you swing at the ball. Take your practice swing with the same tempo and intensity you will use with your swing through the ball and you might have more luck. And
may your deity of choice be with you -- you'll need all the help you can get.
I work with golfers of all skill levels on all areas of their games (individually or in small groups of friends, family, co-workers, etc.) in my Private Golf Schools.
