Friday Afternoon Rant -Tiger Woods and Other Elite Golfers

OK, so it’s Friday afternoon and I am watching the sky clear after a morning of much needed rain here in Southern California…and while I am waiting for the skies to clear I see players like Tiger Woods, specifically, struggling to make the cut in the Honda Classic in Florida.

THIS ISSUE WHEN A PLAYER HITS IT 40-50 YARDS OFFLINE, AS AN INSTRUCTOR OF THIS GREAT GAME, DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!

The telecaster, while I was watching, also mentioned Padraig Harrington and his issues with finding his game, its been 3 years…BAAAAHHH!

I have to ask, virtually of course, since its just me and this keyboard, where are the instructors who are teaching these elite players?  And just as important a question is what the heck are the GURU’s teaching them that causes a player, who makes their living practicing and playing golf 8-10 hours a day, struggle to understand simple things…

Simple things like what has to happen to make their ball go straight….no I am not talking about all the nuances…I am talking about simple facts supported by physics.

So Easy A Baby Can Do It

These are the physics we teach our students daily who get it.  And in an extremely short period can have some pretty darned good command of the direction the ball is headed when they hit it.

And by the way…this is not rocket science.  Brand New Students attending our clinic this past Wednesday?>>>>yes they were able to hit straight shots in minutes of understanding what it took.

For instance, to hit a straight ball the club has to contact the ball with the face square (or pointed at their target) at impact while the path the club travels is also traveling on this same line.

When a player, no matter what skill level does this, the ball, which has no ill feeling towards you or me and cannot make independent decisions, MUST TRAVEL STRAIGHT!

I am going to get off this soap box right here…mainly because the next issue facing golfers, distance (more distance) is really not an issue in today’s PGA and LPGA Players.

But if you’re interested in what it takes to hit it further, let me know and I will send you a video showing you how to get more yardage, again by applying simple physics that won’t hurt your back or make you grunt like Sharipova returning a serve from Venus Williams!

In the meantime, just click How To Hit It Straight Drill Video and then go do what hundreds or our students do….hit it where they are aiming!

Whew, I think I need a nap!
