Swing Easy 101:
Is it possible to swing easy and hit the ball a long way? It doesn't sound like it is possible but go to our Compact Swing page and see how a PGA player hits a long ball with an easy half swing. What's the trick? Can anyone do it or do you need to have big muscular arms to pull it off?
taking golf lessons?
When taking a lesson, is it better to take it outside at the range or inside in front of a net? Taking a lesson outdoors has its advantages but if you're easily distracted then it might be better for you to take it inside in front of a net. Some golfers like it outdoors because they feel claustrophobic or restricted hitting into a net. When hitting a ball on the range, it helps to watch the result. Hitting into a net will not show you the distance nor the flight of the ball.
Don't blame it on your driver if you are not hitting 300 yards. Instead look at the shoes you are wearing. Some of you are wearing tennis shoes and wonder why you are losing distance.. Read more...

getting behind the ropes
You might have heard that golf is played above the shoulders. What does that mean? It means that playing the game is more psychological than physical. Have you seen a player on the PGA Tour that starts their final round at two strokes behind the lead and instead of closing in to the top score, they fall back? This is a known as a player that can't close. Instead of keeping after the leader, they take their foot of the gas pedal and coast. After a few holes, they tell themselves that "it is no use" and they have lost. They defeat themselves before the real game ends. Luckily for the pros, there are companies that teaches players how to close out a tournament and win more. Vision54 is one of these companies. Luckily for us, they have published books for us to buy and learn from.
