  2. Great tips

  3. can you guys maybe reload this with better quality?

  4. Guys, improve your golf skills doesn’t have to be difficult (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Search a training program known as Golfonax Training Program (do a google search). Seriously, thanks to Golfonax Training Program I have improve my golf skills. I probably should not even be mentioning it cause I don’t want a bunch of other guys out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I will share the wealth haha.

  5. Hey Steve. I have trouble getting the ball in air with my 10.5 degree Wilson Driver. i mean i can hit 70-120 but it tends to stay REALLY low. :/ please help me get the ball in air. ( although this situation happens only sometimes and i cant fix it sometimes. ) help. this is embarrassing because i can hit my 7 iron further 0.0

  6. Hey There! Thanks a lot for this helpful video. By the way, I notice lots of people keep on talking about Golfonax Training Program (just google it), but I’m not sure if it’s good. Have you considered this golf program called Golfonax Training Program? I have heard some great things about it.

  7. great video thanks!

  8. I watched this video then went and played probably had my best game off the tee I’ve ever had…apparently my placement was way off. I hit consistently straight w/ a little fade about 180-200 yds…I’m thinking I need a stiffer shaft. But anyway…thank you…improved my game in the matter of a 10 min video.

  9. P.S. Don’t think too much about spine tilt. Just make sure your head is slightly behind your hands at address. If your clubface is open after trying these things, either your grip is way off or you are pressing your hands too far foward.

  10. See my comment to BigRedRacer. Try hovering the club slightly off the ground at address. If you set the club on the ground, it will have a tendency to open slightly, especially if it’s sitting on uneven ground. Besides, when you come back to impact your driver face should not be skimming the ground at all!! So it makes sense to hover the driver head slightly off the ground!!

  11. Try swinging your left arm across your chest in the backswing in line with the right shoulder. If you were to stop at the top of your backswing your hands and left arm should be in line with your right shoulder. As you start the downswing, focus on a spot slightly on the inside half of the ball and make sure you’re transfering your weight to the left foot and leg as you rotate to finish. Hogan said he liked to feel as if his elbows were connected to the body. Watch his videos!!

  12. I am just now learning how to play golf. I am having many problems. My main problem is that I keep missing the ball when I swing. I played baseball growing up and it is like I am pulling on a pitch when I swing. My front shoulder keeps moving out. What can I do to correct this? Any drills?

  13. Fantastic video.

  14. blah blah blah blah blah

  15. Thanks for the vid. I’m a decent iron player, but my driving has always suffered. So when I address the ball your way, my club face is slightly open (my driver is set to square) . Is this how it’s supposed to be? My bad shots with the driver is a low hook or just low short distance ball of any kind. Thanks in advance

  18. Awesome video; this video has really worked for me; nothing else has!

    Hey I’m 19 years old and just starting to try golf this year. I can hit with a driver but I usually hit straight up. I have a hard time choosing how to not hit it up as high as I am. Does anyone have any tips for a new golfer such as myself? I’ve only maxed out hitting 250 and I know thats not much but I started 2 months ago and try the range once a week usually. Thank you for any advice :)

  21. Rubbish

  22. I’m a self taught golfer who had a couple lessons when I was 17. Played for about 1 year very rarely, perhaps once a month. Didn’t play for 5 years and have only in the past 3 months started again. I am 22 and at the moment can hit my driver staight 280 yards. Never hit a driver or owned a driver before.My love is the short game though through my sw, lob and putter. Trying to get better at hitting 7, 6 5 from the fairway or rough and also woods from there. I now have a handicap of 18.

  23. thats precisely the problem i have. with practice swings, i brush the ground everytime, but as soon as i put a ball down i immediately hit DOWN on the ball gauging canyons in the dirt.

  24. long day if you played a round with this bloke!!

  25. Thanks, I picked some stuff up.

  27. F%@k golfonax.

  28. Hey There! Thanks for this useful video. By the way, I hear a lot of people keep on talking about Golfonax Training Program (google it), but I’m not sure if it is really good. Have you tried using this golf training known as Golfonax Training Program? I’ve heard several great things about it.

  29. with = weeyath

  30. $30 for iPING cradle, and the app is FREE

  31. No need for putting lessons anymore if you have the iPING app along with the PING cradle to hold my iphone or ipod touch. my putting is on tour level now thanks to PING!!

  32. Thats really good for faster my course. forget about it..=) you aren’t getting anywhere with a short stroke unless you hit it with your hands.

  33. sea island, GA

  34. Where is this course at?

  35. Try this on greens that stimp at 5 or less and see how far it gets you. The “with a little bit of practice” is misleading at best, dishonest at worst. Putt like Ben Crenshaw if you want a stroke that works for all speeds.

  36. the birds in the background are having a good time.

  37. Try Latino brides in your area
