Because we hit our second shots from the rough almost 50% of the time (or more), it would be cool to learn from one of golf’s best,  Sir Nick Faldo, on succeeding in this situation.  Faldo explains the two critical aspects of this shot – the angle of attack and the clubface angle at impact!  Thanks to Golfing World for sharing.

Who better to teach you a thing or two about the game of golf than a six-time major champion? Here Sir Nick Faldo focuses on playing the ball from the rough when you stray off line

Every golfer can improve their putting!  

As soon as I can one putt every green, then, and only then, will I stop working on my putting! Learning how to read a green accurately is the biggest challenge – even for seasoned PGA and LPGA players!

Here Mitchell Spearman of Golfing World gives a good tip for reading the green correctly.  Watch and Learn!

When you are lining up a putt, it’s instinctive to look at the hole before you hit the ball. DON’T do this. Instead, pick a spot in the break and putt for it. Keep your eyes on that spot all the way through the stroke. You’ll be hitting better shots and dropping strokes on the green.

As a golf instructor, it always amazes me how little care most amateurs take on their alignment.  

Over 50% of the golfers I teach aim incorrectly.  If you are not aimed correctly, you body will make compensations to try and get the ball on line, and that is how bad habits in the golf swing are developed.  This is not hard folks, get some alignment sticks and learn to aim.  You won’t be sorry! My credo is “Focus on repetition with feedback.” Without repetition, you cannot make the movement second nature, and without feedback, you don’t know whether you are doing it correctly.  Do this and you will always get better!

Stance is so important in the golf swing and Jason Day explains how he practices a consistent base accompanied by precision alignment. His use of alignment stick and training aids helps build motor patterns so it is ingrained when he reaches the course.

As I do research for my website and Facebook Page content, I come across an inspirational story that is worth sharing. 

This is Kenny Minter’s story, a Champion Golfer with one arm.  A member of Waldringfield GC in Suffolk, England, who has overcome cancer. And after losing his arm, his friends thought his golfing days were over, but not in Kenny’s mind.  This is a story of grit and determination that can be an inspiration to all who take this game for granted!   Thanks to Golfing World for bringing us this story of human endeavor!

GW was keen to meet up with Kenny Minter, who is quickly becoming known as one of the best golfers in the world with this type of disability! Having won  events for golfers with disabilities over the years, Kenny has unbelievably been able to lower his handicap since becoming an amputee.

Sir Nick Faldo recounts the greatest shot of his career at Muirfield during the 1992 Open Championship on the 18th hole on the final day.  Needing a 4 to secure victory, Sir Nick hit a laser 3 iron to just past the flag, allowing him two putts for victory.  Great stuff!

I have had the good fortune to play several rounds at the Old Course at St. Andrews, and on each occasion, it has been a memorable experience. 

Walking those hallowed grounds, playing golf on a course that has been used for that purpose for centuries, is truly an honor and never taken for granted.  I host a trip to Scotland every 3 years, and my next trip will be in 2017.  Click here for details.
