In this video, Rick Smith instructs how to control your trajectory when you need to keep the ball down. An important part of you golf swing mechanics when it is windy or when you are near trees.

There are many reasons concocted about why you slice a golf ball but there is one reason and one reason only why the ball slices.  Watch this video to find out.

The Draw is a shot that causes the golf ball to spin from right to left. This causes the ball to go to the right and bend to the left. The Draw will help you improve your golf score because it will give you more distance and make you be more consistent in your golf swing. But how do you hit a draw? This lesson will give tips on hitting the draw.

Getting the ball to Draw

In order for the ball to get right to left spin, the club face must strike the ball one or two degrees closed and it will continue to close as it passes through to the other side of the golf ball. The things that create this closed impact are the grip, the alignment to the ball and the follow through at impact.

All of these are covered in the pages click a tab to read. I will cover more in later articles.

Hank Haney explains how keeping your head down is wrong and that you should keep your head up but eyes follow the ball during your golf swing.

The Driver probably is the single club that frustrates me the most when I hit it.  On good days I will hit it great for 4 or 5 shots and then left, right, left, right  into the woods.  On bad days it just goes left, right, and sky ball.    I found these  tips that have helped me improve my shots with my Driver.

Tee the ball correctly

The ball needs to be high enough to let your club swing through it on a very slight upward stroke.  Tee it so the ball is on the top halve of the club face when you hit it.

 Sit the club correctly

When you address your shot, the driver is flat on the ground so you show the natural loft of the club to produce better ball flight.

Know your distance

If you know how far you normally hit it in the air and how far it rolls you can check to see if danger lurks in your driver range.  You can now hit with more confidence knowing that you have the correct club in your hands and its possible position when it stops rolling.

Practice with it

The only way to get better with your driver golf swing is to hit it in practice and then when your done, practice some more until you are hitting the ball consistently and that can transform when you take it on the course into lower golf scores.

Finally, Play your own game

You know how far you hit the ball!  You are playing against the course and not your opponent who might hit it longer.  Don’t ever try to out drive your opponent.  If your score is lower, who cares how far they drive it.  It is very easy to try to keep up and then end up in the lake.  Play your own game, it is the best for you.

These are just a few of the tips that you can use to improve your golf swing with your driver.

Golf Swing Tips For Any Level Of Play

By Jeremy Winters

The way in which you swing your golf club is the most rudimentary of golf skills, yet it can for some people be the most elusive. Regardless of whether you are an amateur golfer or a veteran trying to improve your game, there are a number of tips and methods you can implement to either help you learn the game or achieve lower scores. Learning how to properly swing a golf club is one of the most difficult and important parts of the game, but by following some basic golf swing tips it is very easy to increase both your accuracy and the distance of your drive.

A golfer’s grip is the most fundamental part of the golf swing. There are a variety of options when choosing the right grip and determining which grip is right for you is critical in both how far and how straight you manage to hit the ball.

The Interlocking Grip is the most commonly used grip for people with short or thick hands. It allows you to create the required leverage to deliver as much power as you can into your swing. This grip requires the index finger and little finger of opposite hands to overlap and interlock.

The Baseball Grip is the most commonly used grip for amateurs or those who lack arm or wrist strength. In this grip, similar to the sport it is named after, the index and little fingers do touch, however they do not overlap or interlock.

The Backswing is another important part of a golfer’s swing. By allowing the outside knee to collapse during the backswing, you will cause a dropping of the shoulder and swaying of the hips, affecting your swing considerably. During the backswing, one should also remember to keep the arms locked while drawing back to the furthest point possible and to pause at the peak of the backswing.

Another area in which golf swing tips are of use is in the follow-through. Completion of a proper follow-through should leave your head facing the target with your chin over your shoulder. Remember to keep your head behind the ball as you fully release the club and after hitting it to extend your swing through the ball. Condition yourself to hit the ball and the tee together, as this will help you train to carry your swing through the ball rather than at it.

Practicing a few of these basic golf swing tips will allow you to not only improve your game, but to feel more confident every time you step on the course.

For those who have played golf for many years, it is easy to pick up little habits that can be detrimental to your game. Instead of tweaking and tinkering, it can sometimes be better just to go back to basics and pick up some tips to improve your game that you may have used when you were just starting out.

Problems with the Swing

For many golfers new and old, problems can begin with the swing: At some point in every golfer`s life, as the club comes down, the left knee can collapse which causes your shoulders to drop and your hips to turn too far.

Imagine a Football

Simply by imagining a football between your knees as you swing the club can have a beneficial effect and you can even use a football on the practice areas to help maintain a rigid left knee.

Power Control

If power in the swing is another issue then there is also a simple technique that can remedy this. To achieve power you need control and that control starts with your weaker arm.

If you are right handed try a practice session where you swing solely with your left. The first few shots may be a little wayward but after a while you will notice some control creeping in.

Your left arm also becomes stronger and next time you play a drive off the tee, this combination of power and control can see you achieve a greater distance.

Bunker Play

For many weekend golfers the death of a good round can take place in the bunker and a promising start to your game can be ruined by poor bunker play in an instant.

This is the place where a lot of minor adjustments are made by golfers but once again, going back to basics can produce instant results.

One of the chief reasons for playing a poor bunker shot and maybe even staying in the sand with a worse lie is that the player quits on the shot.


It is important to maintain acceleration throughout the shot. If you stop or slow down, or even hit too hard at the point of impact you won`t achieve the same results that steady acceleration will bring.

It may sound like a simple tip but its amazing how many people forget this basic advice that we were all given when we started playing the game.

Visualize the Game

One of the most important pieces of practice can be done just before heading out on the course.

Mental preparation is a huge part of the game these days and while we can`t all call upon the services of a sports psychologist, there are many things we can do to get focused for the round ahead.

Visualizing your round can be a good place to start:

Before you go out, try visualizing every shot of your round until you`re making great putts,  perfect approaches and powerful swings every time.

Positive Thinking

This won`t guarantee you`ll replicate the round that you`ve just made in your head but this form of positive thinking will ensure that you feel good about your game when you step onto the first tee.


Improve the little things and your golf score will improve.  The swing and the mental game are just a few of the things you can work on to get that golf score lower and have more fun.


We all play golf because we love it and playing better just enhances this love and when little things are going wrong it can help to look at basic free footy tips to turn things round.

I was playing Colony West down here in Ft. Lauderdale the other day and noticed my friend Jim in a bit of a bind playing a side hill lie.

Nothing can be more annoying than having a golf shot on a side hill surface and then skulling it because you just don’t know what to do with it.

The way many golf courses are constructed, you have probably dealt with this lie sometime in your golf experience.

Now I have the solution to the wierd angle dilema.

Read each step and remember what to do and where the ball has a tendency to go.

Analyze the Club Striking the ground

Start out by looking at the ball and how it is angled.

Take a practice swing close with the same angle as where your shot is and observe where the club is striking the ground.

If the golf club strikes the ground near your back foot, then you should move the ball back in your stance; if the club is hitting the ground nearer to the front foot, move the ball forward in your stance.

Setup for Uphill/Downhill lies

The setup when you get these is to position the ball in the stance nearer the higher foot on the downhill lies, and about center on the uphill lies.

Setup for side hill lies

On sidehill lies, position the ball left center or in the same position you normally do.

Remember, if the ball is above your feet on the side hill lie, you will normally hit the ball either straight or have a tendency to pull it to the left.

If the ball is below your feet on the side hill lie, most players will probably go right with the ball or skull it because of the leg action when trying to maintain balance.

Length of the Club For Uphill lies

You will want to have a club that is longer than your normal shot if you are uphill (a 5 instead of a 6).  Try to choke down on the club and put more flex in your left knee (if you are right handed).

Much of your weight should be on your front leg. Remember that the ball will generally go to the left, so aim to the right of the target. Position the ball slightly ahead of center and swing in a slow deliberate way maintaining your balance.

Length of Club for Downhill lies

For downhill lies, you will want a shorter club than you would normally use (a 6 instead of a 5).  The ball will go right, so aim to the left of the target.   Position the ball so that it is back in your stance.   Put most of your weight again on the forward foot.

Have some flex in your right knee and then swing slowly and deliberately maintaining your balance.
Length of Club for Side Hill lies

If you are faced with a side hill shot where the ball is below your feet, you will need a longer club than you would usually use.

Setup closer to the ball when you address it and increase the flex in both of your knees. The ball will go to the right, so aim left of the target and, again, maintain your balance with a slow,  deliberate backswing.

When the ball is above your feet on a side hill shot, the stance is slightly different.
You will still want a longer club than usual, but you will choke down on the shaft.

Stand more upright and put more weight on your toes. The ball will go left, so aim right of the target and maintain a slow and deliberate backswing as you should be doing in all hill shots.


Downhill, Uphill or Side hill shots, when you know how to setup and change the length of your club,  you will notice that these gems are just another shot that you now know how to execute.   Remember the direction they go and adjust accordingly.
