What is Wrong With My Golf Game? ...pssst...its your Swing

By: Lance Blaco

Are you struggling with your golf game? Do you hook, slice or duff the ball?

Come on, admit it, we all do from time to time. Does your score stay the same

or go even higher inspite of what you do to correct your game? Let me tell you

it's a problem problem with your swing. It's called inconsistency.

So what do you do when you're swinging badly? Go to the driving range, with no

direction or plan, and try to work out the kinks in your swing? Or continuously buy

and try different equipment, looking for that magic bullet? Sometimes this can yield

results, expensive results.

I was talking with my brother the other day and he mentioned something that struck

me like a bolt of lightning. We were talking about golf (naturally, what else is there to

talk about) and about buying some new clubs, when he said, "what's the point of

buying better clubs when your swing still stinks?" That really made me stop and think.

I have a golf partner who has bought a new set of clubs this year, but is still swinging

just like always. The new clubs look nice...that's about all.

Have you priced a new, full set of clubs lately? How about a session with a professional

golf trainer? You can easily spend $1000-1500 for a set of clubs, and $80-100/hour

with a trainer. I don't know about you, but I don't have that kind of money laying around.

If I spent that kind of money, I would have a great set of clubs and a good swing, but

no money left to go golfing.

Think about this for a minute. When the pro's start having problems with their swing,

do they run out and get new equipment? No. They work on the fundamentals of their

swing. When they are swinging correctly, they could probably use a shovel as a club

and would outdrive and outplay the average golfer. So the answer is not in new

equipment, it's in getting your basic swing corrected. Once you do that, you can hit

anything.

Think about this...you go to a professional golf trainer, they analyze your swing and

tell you what you're doing incorrectly and how to fix it. You go back out and start

playing then forget what they taught you. What recourse do you have. You have

nothing to go back and refer to. What other options are there?

There are some great self help books out there that you can use to get your swing

fixed and conditioned. The best thing about using a instructional book is that you can

work at your own pace, and go back and refer to any portion of it again and again.

By utilizing this strategy, you can easily work on your fundamental swing.

These books will teach you the correct stance, ball placement, grip and swing plane.

The most important thing they teach though is muscle memory. Muscle memory on a

good swing is the vital essence of playing good golf. You want to be able to address

the ball and hit it the same exact way each and every time, and muscle memory is

how you are going to get consistency.

So why spend lots of money to purchase of a new set of clubs or personal training

when you can get you own copy of The Simple Swing. Use the money you save to

enjoy more rounds of rewarding, low scoring golf.
