How the Internet Improved My Golf Game
Article by Willie Paxton
Are you a beginner or a high handicapper at golf? Are you seeking the perfect golf swing? Have you paid out good money time & time again on golf instruction, on how to swing a golf club and not really seen any real improvement? I was in the same position. For a good 5 or 6 years I listened to the professional, practiced what he said but rarely did my game improve. In the end I became quite used to the idea that I would always be a high handicapper and my game would not really improve to any great extent.
Out of desperation I decided that instead of paying for more lessons I would seek advice and golf swing tutorial from the Internet. I had some basic flaws in my game. Of my tee shots, only around half were good and my second or third shot would invariably be a left of the target. I also struggled with my short game and my putting quite honestly was a joke.
I came across a book on the internet and I was amazed at the improvement in my game. I found it to be a step-by-step guide with detailed photos that taught the correct way to grip the club. The book is a comprehensive guide to golf that addresses all the problems related to slicing, chipping, putting, sand, driving, inconsistency, distance and much more, with simple and easy to follow instructions.
My problem tee shot was down to a couple of things. I either hooked the shot very low and it went only about 100 yards or my swing would come across the left side of the ball causing an enormous slice. I cured the hook with a change of grip. Basically I was turning my hands towards the left and closing the club face. This resulted and a shot that started off OK for the first 50 yards only to swerve rapidly left and dive very quickly to the ground. The new grip I have, stopped this as it made it very difficult to close the face. I also learned how to align the club-face to cure my awful slice. You see I was aligning my club too close to the toe of the club, so this encouraged an exaggerated slice.
My second and even third shots were corrected by examining my address of the ball, I did not realize that I had a very open stance, my feet were in a parallel line pointing to the right of the target, this was like my original tee shots causing the club to have a closed face. So, whilst I was always aiming right of the intended target, my shots would invariably go left. The book highlighted other problems also. I had a tendency to get off balance when putting extra effort into a shot which would result in a shank. The book cured many of my bad golfing habits. I effectively got a golf swing that works for less than the price of a pair of golf shoes.
