  • Fault Fix – Shank

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Thursday, 12 May 2011

    Shanking the ball occurs when the golfer presents the hosel of the club to the ball at impact. This horror shot can be caused by the weight shifting forwards excessively in the downswing or by a swing path that is excessively in-to-out or out-to in. Whatever the cause of your shanks, this simple drill from TG Elite Teaching Pro Gareth Johnston...

  • Fault Fix – Topped shots

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Thursday, 12 May 2011

    Topped shots usually occur because the club is rising as it approaches the ball rather than descending into the back of it. Remember that to strike iron shots powerfully, the ball needs to be struck first, creating a divot afterwards. In this golf video tip, TG Elite Teaching Pro Gareth Johnston presents a simple swing thought to do just that. You’ll...

  • Fault Fixer: Slice

  • Fault Fixer: Blocked Drives

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Tuesday, 3 May 2011

    A lot of golfers desperate to cure their slice will deliberately work on changing their swing path so it’s more from out-to-in. But if the clubface remains open to the target, or square to this excessive swing path, the result is a blocked shot that starts right and stays right! A more neutral club path and clubface is required and TG...

  • Fault Fixer: Fat iron shots

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Wednesday, 27 April 2011

    It’s an embarrassing problem to have, isn’t it? Fatting your iron and wedge shots occurs mostly when the body’s centre moves back behind the ball at impact. Remember the body’s centre or sternum is where the bottom of your swing arc is so if you hang back behind the ball, you’re going to hit the ground first. This video tip from...

  • Fault fixer: Hooked drives

    Written by Gareth Johnston on Wednesday, 27 April 2011

    This destructive tee shot is usually caused by the clubface being excessively closed to the path of the club at impact. A simple way to combat this is to get the club coming into the ball more from the outside or get the clubface more open during the swing, as TG Elite Pro Gareth Johnston explains in this golf video...

  • Chip Dead Every Time

    Written by Dan Frost on Wednesday, 30 September 2009

    A lot of people have too much wrist hinge in their chipping action. This leads to thinned or fat chips. If you want to ensure you chip dead every time then you have to eliminate the wrists from the action and keep them very quiet in the stroke. TG Top 12 Teacher Dan Frost demonstrates a very effective way to chip your...

  • Re-Train Your Swing Path

    Written by Adrian Fryer on Wednesday, 30 September 2009

    If you are prone to hitting your iron shots fat or thin you'll either be attacking the ball too much from an inside path or too much from an outside path. TG Top 12 Teacher Adrian Fryer uses a hula hoop to demonstrate how easy it is to get the club tracking on the correct swing path into strike the ball.

  • Give Your Slice A Face Lift With David Leadbetter

    Written by David Leadbetter on Wednesday, 26 August 2009

    The reason you're hitting a lot of slices is because your clubface is open at impact. The problem might be in your backswing. Many slicers fan the face open during the takeaway, resulting in a weak, open position at the top. This forces them to swing down from outside the target line in an effort to square the face, but the...

  • Three drills to cure a slice

    Written by Scott Cranfield on Friday, 26 June 2009

    The dreaded slice. Just about every golfer has experienced it, so much so that nearly everyone even understands what happens when you create a slice. Coming across the ball in an out-to-in swingpath will impart sidespin on the golf ball and see it go from left to right. To change this you need to be able to change the way you deliver...

  • Eliminate The Pull

    Written by Dan Frost on Sunday, 24 May 2009

    A lot of golfers pull shots. That's when the ball flies straight left of your target. There are several common causes of this bad shot. The first can be traced to the set-up. Golfers who pull the ball tend to set-up with their shoulders open. The next fault occurs in the downswing. The club tracks into strike the ball from a steep...

  • Cure Your Hook

    Written by Lee Scarbrow on Thursday, 7 May 2009

    There are many reasons for hitting a hook shot off the tee, but three of the main causes are too strong a right hand grip, not getting the right knee through the ball, and not taking the clubface away with a little bit of rotation. These three faults can all lead to the right-to-left hook. TG Top 12 Teacher Lee Scarbrow...

    Written by Dan Frost on Thursday, 7 May 2009

    Want to stop slicing your shots? This is the drill for you. It's very simple. Just line three golf balls up, the centre ball is the one you'll strike, then one above and just behind the middle ball away from the target and one below and just ahead of the middle ball, towards the target. The goal is to strike the centre...

  • Fix Heel & Toe Hits

    Written by Butch Harmon on Friday, 9 January 2009

    Driver heads are huge, but I still see plenty of heel and toe hits. The reason? Most golfers swing it too hard, with either the hands and arms or the hips racing out of sequence on the downswing. Either way, the club gets re-routed, leading to off-centre contact. If you pull the club down from the top with your hands...

  • Fix A Slice With David Leadbetter

    Written by David Leadbetter on Friday, 2 January 2009

    ...simply ensure you get your right elbow in the 'slot'. There are a lot of ways you can fix a slice, but one of my favourites is to focus on the right elbow - moving it into the 'slot' on the downswing. The slot is a position just in front of the right hip, where the right elbow sits under the left,...
