    Written by Rob Watts on Friday, 12 November 2010

  • Stay dry to swing on plane!

    Written by Rob Watts on Friday, 17 September 2010

    A lot of weekend golfers will tend to swing the club too far behind them in the backswing, creating too shallow a plane. This leads to the golfer hitting a lot of pushed shots or hooked shots because the club tracks too far from the inside into the ball. If your swing plane is too flat, get out in the rain...

  • Improve Your Posture Drill

    Written by Adrian Fryer on Monday, 10 August 2009

    A huge cause of miss-struck shots among amateur golfers is a loss of posture through impact. Many golfers will tend to stand up through the hitting zone leading to both thin and fat shots. By doing this, the body will also lack rotation which reduces the amount of power into the back of the ball. Retain your posture throughout the swing...
