Are You Fully Benefiting From Your Golf Swing Training Videos
The golf swing is so central and so important to the game of golf that any improvement tips and especially golf swing training videos are greatly desired and valued by golfers everywhere.Yet the question will often arise about just how effective these golf swing training videos are in improving golfer's drives on the course, let alone their scores.It will be found that the impact that golf swing training videos have on most amateur's games is minimal at best and at the other end of the scale, some games even get worse, rather than better.There is a simple reason why most golfers hardly ever benefit from golf swing training videos. It is the facts that even in cases where they are mentally prepared to implement the valuable tips and advice that they receive from suc...(related: Golf)

Are You Fully Committed To Playing Your Best Golf?
After taking golf lessons and/or attempting to make changes in one's swing, many players have a difficult time fully committing to executing the new swing on the golf course. There are a variety of reasons for this. Some are concerned because of a fear of hitting the ball in a "bad" place- into a hazard, bunker, OB, etc. Others don't swing the club with full commitment because of a lack of faith in their ability to swing it well, and instead end up trying to guide the ball.The trouble with making tentative swings is that regularly the s...(related: Golf)

Are You Having Trouble Sustaining Energy On The Back Nine?
Loss of stamina and endurance toward the end of an eighteen-hole round of golf happens to many golfers and can often be attributed to poor nutrition.

Foods that are low in fat and contain balanced portions of lean protein and slow release carbohydrates make the best choices, and the golfer's diet should include...(related: Golf)

Back Fitness For Senior Golfers
Back injuries are prevalent among golfers of all ages and especially for senior golfers. Age has a way of letting us know subtly that our bodies no longer react like the good old days of 20 something. The back is one area of our body we can't afford to take for granted. Whether you suffer from minor aches and pains, mild discomfort or even general tightness, your back could be at risk as well as your game.So how can we protect our backs from the wear and tear of age while creating longevity in golf?The first thing to check is your posture. If you don't know the right way to sit, stand or lift weight, then you are far from learning the complexities of swing mechanics!The "perfect swing" is something many attempt to learn by watching or reading a book.

Balance Your Checkbook And Golf Swing
We all search for it. Balance in our daily lives. Balance while riding a bike. Politicians are always debating a balanced budget in Washington, and most of us could use a little balance in our checkbooks. Balance is a term used in golf quite often as well. It's a "buzzword" and almost a cliché when it comes to the golf swing. I am sure you have heard numerous times from swing coaches that "you have to stay balanced when swinging your club." Others phrases that I hear when we talk about golf and balance are the following: "When it comes to a sand shot, dig your feet into the st...(related: Golf)

Basic Golf Etiquette
Many golfers take to the sport without the basic understanding of how the game should be played. Of course, we all know that the game requires a tee, a ball, and clubs, but few golfers actually take the time to learn the proper etiquette of the game. Lacking this type of fundamental knowledge can lead to tremendously embarrassing mistakes on the green. Golf is a great game when digested properly and then studied correctly. It's important to take each step as it comes and do it right. This article should help you to understand the basics of good golf etiquette. I think that I can best show you how the game is played by taking you through the play of one hole with a foursome.The members of the foursome or twosome hit in turn. The closest ball to the green hits last and so on. When on the first tee, the order in which the play...(related: Golf)

Big Trouble
I have chosen four of what I feel are the most common trouble shots you may encounter at The Bridges Golf Club. And "Taking the Challenge" at the Bridges involves being prepared for trouble shots. It would be naive of me to think otherwise. Remember, every course has a little different layout and terrain so practice accordingly.Welcome these difficult situations as a test of your intellect. These shots just take a bit more creativity than others. Besides, if we hit every shot in the fairway and then on the green, we would have nothing to talk about over a beverage after the round.Trouble shots might be the hot topic of conversation after the round but are less popular at the practice range. There are several reasons why we don't practice trouble shots. First of all...(related: Golf)

Can A Golf Swing Video Change Your Game?

Charity Golf Tournaments
If you are involved with a non-profit organization, chances are you have been approached by people who specialize in hosting charity golf tournaments. Charity golf tournaments are extremely popular ways for people to raise money. Usually, the way these events are set up, people pay a fee to be involved in a two or three-day event, sometimes a one-day event only. The players get to play alongside local celebrities and there are prizes that can be won to sweeten the deal.An example of a charity golf prize is a hole-in-one prize. The tournament organizer will choose a hole with a par-3 and offer, say, a new car to the person who hits a hole in one. There is no risk involved to the charity if they purchase what is known as "hole-in-one insurance," a comparatively small premium that...(related: Golf)

Choosing The Right Shoes, Golf Shoes, Wedding Shoes And Other Footwear!
Wearing a comfortable pair of shoes is very important if you spend much time on your feet. Whether you're standing, walking or running, all of your weight falls directly onto the bottom of your feet.

Core Strength For Golf
