Heat Up Your Game Inside And Out!

Whether you're snowbound or course-bound, here?s all you need to keep your game burning hot

Heat Up Your Game Inside And Out!Although there are many different swings, there are only two kinds of golfers: those who live in climes that allow year-round golf and those who don’t. For those who must suffer through months of frost-covered greens, watching wedges and irons collect dust, we feel your pain. However, there’s no reason why you can’t use the between-season time to prep your game for when the gates of your home course reopen to the rites of spring.

Unlock The Magic

Solve golf?s toughest puzzle by widening your swing

Unlock The MagicIn golf, there are the “haves” and the “have-nots.” The “haves” are blessed with an uncanny ability to achieve the perfect plane through the impact zone, regardless of what occurred before it.

50 Best Swing Keys

What to do and where to be throughout the swing for guaranteed success

50 Best Swing KeysWhen you watch Tour pros on television, you probably notice certain similarities in their respective swings. Good tempo is common, as well as good balance. Do you remember the last time you saw a professional golfer fall down after a swing or take a hack that looked awkward or rushed? Amateur golfers also tend to notice the look and feel of effortlessness Tour pros project during the swing. Of course, the prodigious distance their shots travel and the crispness of their ballstriking are impressive as well. The problem is, most amateurs simply don’t do the things the pros do before, during and after the swing and, as a result, are unable to get the same results. To hit the ball like a pro, you have to understand the moves they make and learn to do them yourself. Then, you’ll be solid.

Flaws And Fixes 2002

A guide to finding and fixing common flaws that may be hiding in your swing

Flaws And Fixes 2002Over the years, I’ve worked with thousands of golfers, and if I had to find a common trait among them all, it would be that each and every one has his or her own unique swing. A second—albeit unfortunate—universal characteristic is that all of these swings are plagued by at least one major flaw.

Hit More Fairways

What to do when you absolutely have to be in play

Hit More FairwaysJust round the corner from my house in northeastern Oklahoma lies Miami CC, a course on which I grew up and learned the game. It’s a track steeped in history, having at one time Ky Laffoon as its head professional. I taught each one of my five children to play golf on Miami CC—a course where each hole seems to demand a different golfing skill.

Squeeze And Let Go

Squeeze And Let GoOver the years, much has been written about grip pressure and what this level of pressure feels like. This has been a difficult task for instructors because how can you aptly describe what something feels like?

The Secondary Angle

Maintain your spine tilt for improved ballstriking

The Secondary AnglePosture is a critical element of the golf swing, and is often overlooked by golf instructors and recreational players alike. It's not particularly dynamic or flashy, and most golfers just don't get excited about spending time developing correct posture. However, establishing the proper body angles at address—and maintaining them throughout the swing—is absolutely crucial to solid ballstriking and good shotmaking.
