taking the clubhead back The Takeaway June 30, 2021 10:02 am

As long as your address position and grip are correct, then we are ready explore the takeaway – how to take the club away from the ball and the effect that can have on your shots.

Wow, what a special victory that was for John Rahm in the 2021 US Open. As well as being his first major, it was notable for a number of other reasons: – He becomes the first Spaniard to win a US Open, something the late, great Seve Ballesteros burned with desire to achieve. – He did it at a course...

Alignment May 30, 2021 12:36 pm

Alignment. This is the one thing on the golf range that I never discuss with customers. That’s not to say it isn’t important. Far from it. But the nature of the golf range negates the need to check this. When you are in the bay, you have the mat, the netting and the structure of the range building. All of... View Article

balanced golf swing Balance May 4, 2021 8:29 am

A balanced golf swing requires focus both at address position and throughout the swing to the end. So let’s look at each section in turn. Firstly, at address. You should endeavour to feel the weight balanced equally between both feet. The exception to this is the tee shot where a slight bias to your back foot is preferred. The weight... View Article

Spine Straight Posture April 1, 2021 7:19 am

I am sorry to start this tip with a sexist statement, but by and large ladies are so much better at the golf posture than us men. They tend to stand straighter with their spine, whereas many of the men, particularly the taller breed, look a touch like Quasimodo when they are about to hit a golf ball. This error... View Article

golf grip Back to basics: grip pressure January 5, 2021 3:48 pm

Prior to each shot, the very first thing we do is take hold of the golf club. Unfortunately, in most cases, we have already made a big error, by holding the golf club as if it were my throat!!! If you watch other sports, you can see how hard the protagonists work to reduce the tension in their action. Tennis... View Article
