Power Golf The Easy Way
Power golf is a game very few golfers can play. What I mean by that is?power golf takes a certain level of golf specific strength and flexibility. There are requirements that have to be in place to maximize your power and golf driving distance.
It's not as easy as getting the 'latest-greatest' driver at $500. It's not buying Titleist ProV1's at $45 a case. It's not even taking more lessons (although swing mechanics are very important).
The answer is improved strength and flexibility from a rotational standpoint? in your core? to play a power golf game.
The golf swing is a turn (rotate back) and a turn (rotate through). If there are limitations that don't allow you to rotate back fully and store that torque (energy), then you will never play a power golf game....
Junior Golf Is Becoming More Competitive? Why?
How do you get the edge when you're playing junior golf? To keep up with the top junior golfer's means getting stronger both physically and mentally; and almost perfecting your golf swing. That's how competitive it's become.

We have started to see a dramatic change in the caliber of junior golfers. They are getting fitter, stronger and are hitting it as long as the PGA and LPGA players. This is a combination of personal coaching on swing mechanics and getting stronger.
Junior golfers like Ty Tryon, Michelle Wie and the Song sisters are a perfect example of what junior golfers are capable of, given the right approach....
Golf Swing Trainer - What Is It?
Golf swing trainer is a term you might think of for a training aid that works on your golf swing. I've come up with a new definition for a golf swing trainer. It happens to be what I do for a living.
I won't take up this whole article talking about myself, but I do want you to think of a golf swing trainer in a different light after reading this.
You see? I've watched and read about the millions of golfers who are in search of the "silver bullet". The "magic pill" that will give them the perfect swing and the game they dream of. Well? it's not out there! I hate to ruin the party, but there is no such thing.
There is hope!
I have spent the better part of 10 years studying the golf swing....
Golf Shots Versus Golf Swings - You Need Shots On The Course!
Why do so many golfers hit a shot and immediately realize they messed up?
There are two parts to a golf shot.
Part one is planning.
In order to send the ball towards the target on the golf course, all of the variables that Mother Nature has given us have to be considered and compensated for. This is what makes every golf shot unique.
The lie, the wind, obstacles, temperature, hazards, your personality, and your ability must all be considered before you ever swing the club.
...But it's not that simple. The planning phase of the shot must be complete, and the final decision must be without any doubt before moving on.
If there is any doubt about the shot you have chosen when you stand over the ball your mind will be distracted and possibly try to form another shot in mid-swing....
Golf Tips - The Secret and Crucial Role of Alignment in Supercharging Your Game!
The alignment is an absolutely crucial and vital part to any golfer's game. You swing round your body, therefore if your body is offline, your swing in turn will be off line and out of sync, resulting in a poor swing and a poor shot, usually ending up deep in the rough.
When setting up to the ball, firstly ensure the clubface is square to the 'ball to pin line' (the line between the ball and the pin), and ensure that your shoulders, hips and feet are all parallel to the 'ball to pin line', if these 3 are not aligned and one is out, a good body turn is ruined with a poor swing resulting.
When training, on the driving range or wherever you can practise, a useful technique for lining up is to place a club on the floor and check that you're your feet, hips and shoulders line up with each other, the shoulder alignment is particularly crucial because your body turn starts with your shoulders....
Improve Your Putting By Developing Rock Solid Confidence On The Green
All of us have missed a short putt before. It is frustratingto miss something you know you can make! And most often a missed short putt can cause a chain reaction of bad play. Every golfer will have a tendency to remember a bad shot ata certain hole when he next plays that hole. Think of any short putt as a link on a chain that is a slack and being pulled tight. As the chain tightens each link is influencedby the one in front of it and influences the links behind it. What you must learn to do is break this chain of bad reactionsby silencing that inner voice. This inner voice will tell you all manner of ill-advised advice and you must build a new chainbased on memories of successful shots, not the failures of previous ones....
Choosing the Right Golf Balls
You've watched Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on television - you know the brand of golf balls they use. And they're good, right? You should be able to use the same brand of golf balls and be good too, right? Wrong!
Maybe using the same type golf balls as the PGA golf pros will improve your game...and maybe it won't. You need to choose the golf ball that's right for your own game. Choosing the wrong kind of golf ball can be a bigger handicap to your game than starting at the 19th hole. Choosing the right kind of golf ball can have you feeling like a Tiger, even if you don't quite have his handicap.
Golf balls come in three styles: 2-piece, 3-piece, and high performance. 2-piece golf balls are designed for improving your distance, while 3-piece and high performance golf balls can typically help with accuracy....
The Golf Training Exercises You Need To Improve Your Game Are Very Simple
Golf training and conditioning exercises are not as difficult as most people think they are.
It is important to understand that these exercises are very different from many of the rigorous exercises that you will often see athletes using to condition their bodies and stay in shape.
For example golf training exercises using weights are not designed to built bulky muscles. Usually much lighter weights will be used and will be lifted more times as opposed to normal muscle-building training which will involve much heavier weights being lifted fewer times. The muscle-building exercises will also call for longer hours of exercises daily. Golf training exercises will usually take very little time....
Are You Fully Benefiting From Your Golf Swing Training Videos
The golf swing is so central and so important to the game of golf that any improvement tips and especially golf swing training videos are greatly desired and valued by golfers everywhere.
Yet the question will often arise about just how effective these golf swing training videos are in improving golfer's drives on the course, let alone their scores.
It will be found that the impact that golf swing training videos have on most amateur's games is minimal at best and at the other end of the scale, some games even get worse, rather than better.
There is a simple reason why most golfers hardly ever benefit from golf swing training videos. It is the facts that even in cases where they are mentally prepared to implement the valuable tips and advice that they receive from successful professionals, more often than not, they are not physically prepared....
How The Golfer Elbow Can Be Avoided And Cured
The golfer elbow is very similar to the tennis elbow and can be a nagging and extremely painful injury that has the danger of recurring again and again.
The golfer elbow is a rather annoying injury for many golfers and usually greatly disrupts their game. This is because doctors will always advice that you stay away completely from the game until the injury heals completely. This may take quite sometime. The elbow is a joint and most joint injuries take much longer to heal than other injuries because it is difficult to completely avoid using a joint in our day to day lives.
Golfer elbow is usually caused by either sudden movement or continued recurring strain on the tendons. A tendon in the body usually joins a muscle to a bone....
Is The Golf Ball The Real Reason For Longer Drives ?
A Little History First
To determine this point, we have to travel back in time and see how the original golf ball was formed.
The original golf balls as most of us know, were made from goose feathers stuffed into a round leather ball. It is estimated that those could be hit as far as 170 yards with the modern club.
The next technological advance was the gutta percha ball. This was made from tree sap or rubber and compressed into a round mould. A modern club can hit this about 200 yards on average.
The Haskell method was to improve the ball construction, by having a soft core, and winding thin rubber around this core. This ball can be hit around the 225 to 250 yard range.
Further advances saw the introduction of a liquid core with a soft balata cover....

Do You Understand Golf Club Swing Weight
Golf club swing weight. Have you heard that term before?
A rather effective method of improving the golf swing is by adding extra weight to the club and then going through the motions of swinging.
This sort of exercise has many advantages apart from the fact that it is very golf specific and works on building the exact muscles you use during a golf swing or drive.
The other reason why extra weight on the club dramatically improves any golf swing is because the whole swing movement usually feels very unnatural to the body. You can easily tell this from the body violently resists it, making the golf swing one of the most difficult things to master in the golf game.
The extra weight on the golf club even as you practice the swing, quickly builds up and conditions the muscles involved so that the next time you do a golf swing, it feels much more natural....
