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

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

2021 Championship Predictions January 2, 2021 11:13 am

After a year like no other, Jon Woodroffe ponders on his predictions for the big tournaments in 2021. If last year was a golf hole, then we started with a reasonable drive, followed by a shank out of bounds. We continued with a mildly mis-hit fairway wood that crawled towards the green.

One of the biggest frustrations of this game is that you cannot play the same all the time. We are all looking for the same thing: consistency. Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but you will never achieve it. Sorry. Every golfer, no matter what their standard, gets fed up with their lack of consistency. But if you can... View Article
