Golf swing practice at the nets

There is a point to practicing a golf swing at the nets if I know exactly what I'm practicing and what I'm trying to achieve. There is no point just going there to smack a few dozen balls into the net. It may be good for my cardio, but makes…

Focus on the target - not on the ball

I hit the best shots when I'm concentrating on the actual target somewhere on the fairway or the flag. It is not something that comes easily to me. I have to make a conscious effort to see the flag in the distance when I'm lifting the club.…

I decided to learn to play golf later in life. For a person over 40, there are very few options left as far as sports to consider learning. I love tennis and badminton, but these are a young man's sports. I mean I can still play them but I am…

Swing over-rotating and hips rotation

I am over-rotating my swing. I kept looking at my swing trying to work out what the hell am I doing wrong. Finally worked out that I'm turning my hips way too much. I think for that kind of stuff a visit to a golf pro would be more economical…

Enjoying golf practice at sunset

I like practicing at my club close to sunset. There is almost nobody there, or if there are, they stay at one hole and practice with a dozen balls. I picked hole 2. It's a short par 4, but I wanted to just practice my swing, so selected a spot…

Over the top swing - I learned why I'm doing it and found a fix

I must have watched every single YouTube video there is on the subject and apart from 1, all of them are complete rubbish. They come up with these complicated explanations as to why we swing over the top, and they all promise to "cure the over…

I know why I am lifting my head in back swing - the posture

I found another obvious reason why I am lifting my head in back swing. I'ts my posture! Went to a driving range today. I like the nets, and I can judge whether I am hitting the ball well, but I don't get to see the actual flight. And today…
