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…

My new Wilson lob wedge

I paid 17 times more for my new Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges than my Wilson lob wedge. I'm no expert, but I don't think they play 17 times better. In fact, I don't think they play any better at all. I hit as many crappy shots with the new Vokey…

Used a golf pitch fork for the first time – ever

No, I have hit greens before, but I never had to use the pitch fork because my balls never made a pitch mark on the green. The greens at our golf club are really dry. Plus they are in Sydney, so we don't see that much rain here. Today, however…

Great round of golf to welcome new year

The golf course was completely abandoned today. I thought it was closed, but apparently open, just not popular on January 1st. I spent some time at the nets to practice the "lifting of the head" fix. It worked to some degree, but I'm still not…

I’m lifting my head in the backswing- I may have found a fix

2021 Update... What I thought a couple of years ago makes perfect sense, but I don't think my lack of flexibility is the main issue here. I got into the habit of videotaping my swing lately and I found that I still lift my head, but something…

What golf irons should I get?

What golf irons should I get? Well, that is a question and a half. I started my search for better irons when I realised that I can hit the ball properly, every now and then. Actually, it was even sooner than that. It was when I realised that…

Effortless swing with a whip

It takes a lot of effort for me to produce an effortless swing, let me tell you that. I struggled all afternoon, but in the end I had some success. I was knackered by then, but I will continue with this tomorrow, knowing that the drill works.…

My new golf wedges arrived

I don't think for a minute that they made a huge difference in my shots. I am still so inconsistent in my swing that any type of improvement can't actually be measured. I am enjoying hitting them, and that is a good thing. They are new and…

I will teach myself golf

Why will I teach myself golf? Because the coaches I know don't teach golf. They use track monitors and high speed cameras to find faults in our swing, but no one actually teaches how to swing. I have a good idea what the swing is supposed…
