Golftec Tips

The Types of Play1

skinsgame With the biannual Ryder Cup competition again on our radar screen, we get a chance to experience golf in a whole new way. Instead of Stroke Play, we get to see more head-to-head competition and a new level of, um, gamesmanship. No longer is it man vs. course — golf gets personal. Unfortunately, most players don't know the difference between Foursomes and Four-ball, so we're here to clear things up. If you're looking for a new way to see who will be paying for the 19th hole, consider these great formats for competition.Check Out the Full Review Here

GolfTEC Drill—Credit Card Drill0

creditcard There have been a variety of unorthodox swings on tour that have been incredibly successful—Ray Floyd, Nancy Lopez, Lee Trevino, Jim Furyk, John Daily, Bubba Watson. All those swings while unorthodox in their method, still produced a very consistent, repeatable impact position. If you were look at those swings side by side at impact you’d see a lot more similarities than differences. Having a firm, left side at impact and having a flat wrist is a requirement to hitting quality, crisp shots. Use this drill to create a consistent impact position, keeping your wrist straight to ensure the club-face is square.Check Out the Full Review Here

Swings of Beauty0

main_body How to improve your game without changing your swing. Certified Personal Coach Erika Wicoff, GolfTEC Carmel, LPGA Member Golfers today are in a never ending and elusive pursuit for the “perfect” swing, or in GolfTEC terms, a Green Swing. Swing planes and paths, weight shifts and angles of approach are terms and techniques that differ from one player to the next. The typical golf swing is three seconds long and it is considered almost a dare to see how many parts one can adjust and how many things one can think about in that short time. But what if someone has taken that so-called “challenge” and has naturally, or due to physical limitations, taken it upon him/herself to move against the status quo of the perfect swing?Check Out the Full Review Here

When the Going Gets Tough…0

How to play common trouble shots. Russ Clark, Director of Instruction, Franchise Owner, GolfTEC Boulder June is here and all golfers will turn their attention to the upcoming U.S. Open. This year it returns to a course that while short, has a history of having tight fairways, diabolically dense rough and tiny, lightning fast greens. If those issues aren’t daunting enough, there’s the pressure of simply teeing it up in a U.S. Open. As Lee Trevino stated, “Players know that the words ‘U.S. Open’ mean double the pressure. You can make a mistake at Augusta and get away with it. Not at a U.S. Open.” Read More...Check Out the Full Review Here

Lasting Swing Improvements Start with Proper Aiming

golftech If you are like most golfers (right-handed), you may be aiming too far to the right on every shot you hit. This will require you to either swing to the left with an outside-to-in path or flip your wrists at impact in an effort to make the ball land on the target. Read More...Check Out the Full Review Here
