Avoid YOUR Blow-up Holes!

During a round of golf, the moment of truth will hit you many times. Should you take a risky shot and possibly blow-up your score or should you make the recovery shot to only lose one stroke. Of course the risky shot is possible and you know that you have made that shot at least 1 out of every 10 attempts. What were you thinking?

Risky shots over a long stretch of water, out of deep grass or through a tiny window in the trees can happen during every round you play. You’ve seen the pros make amazing recovery shots on TV. Your mind takes over — “No Guts, No Glory”. You take the shot. Unfortunately, it turns out to be the wrong decision and you add on 2 or 3 stokes for your blow-up holes.

Why is Your Ego Taking Over?
We all play golf to challenge our bodies and minds to win against OURSELVES. It’s a wonderful distraction from real world problems. Making par on every hole is a win. Making birdie is a bonus. If you correctly choose to play from the Tee which will allow you to par every hole, it will give you the confidence for success. You expect wonderful results but what is holding you back?

SOLUTION: Accept the Fact that Your Next Risky Shot has a 90% Chance of Failure

During a playing-lesson with a club professional, I was wisely reminded: It only takes one stroke to get a poor shot back in play. It’s up to you to recognize that you will not make the green on your next shot so your best alternative is to make the easy shot to get back in a safe location for your next shot.

When you know that the shot is risky, wake-up and take your penalty shot to get out of trouble.

Accept the Following Facts:
When your ball is lying in a poor location (deep rough, behind a tree etc.), your adrenaline starts to pump and your muscles tighten. The tempo of your swing WILL change. What you think is an easy shot turns into a CRISIS. You will hit a fat or thin chunked shot because you are swinging harder and faster. FEAR takes over your mind and body.
You start your down swing with your arms (instead of your hips) as you swing over the top and too steeply into the ball.
You rush your swing and minimize your shoulder rotation in your back swing
You raise your head and shoulders early as you take your eye off the ball.
You finish your swing out of balance and fall backwards.

It’s difficult to control your mind during a recovery shot. Take deep breathes and say controlling words to be “Calm and Relaxed”. The pros do this but we are recreational golfers.  We have a hard time:
Keeping our head down to see the ball through impact.
-Shifting our weight forward to impact the ball before skimming the turf.
-Releasing our wrists and swing up our target line to a balanced finish.

Hit more safe shots to avoid those blow-up holes. If you get in trouble, make one recovery shot to get your ball back in play. Practice with GOLFSTR+ for 6 swing fixes to keep your ball in the fairway. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Inspiration from Payne Stewart

Some time ago I saw a story on the Golf Channel about memories of Payne Stewart by his wife, Tracey.  Considering his struggles for success and the tragic early end of his life, I was most impressed by swing tips that Payne’s father, had hand written for Tracey. She framed the note as it was a wonderful reminder of the years that she had referred to it for guidance when she worked with Payne throughout his professional career.

Tracey recorded the stats for every tournament that Payne played. She kept a record of fairways hits, GIR and number of putts so we know that she was very involved with the process to help Payne improve his game.

The following note is a good example that we may all want to follow in order to improve our games. It’s a list of swing thoughts that Payne’s father hoped that Tracey would use if she noticed that Payne’s game was in trouble. This note is a piece of Payne Stewart’s golf history and the specific tips may have little bearing on YOUR game but the list may give you ideas to prepare your personal list to read when your putts, fairways shots or drives are not working.

“dad wrote to me” [comment entered by Tracy Stewart at the top of the hand written note]

– Watch Payne’s feet on putting, keep left foot back, right foot up.
– Keep Payne with a good tempo. Slow backswing, take it back high + finish high
– Keep the blade open with 7, 8, 9, PW & SW and finish high
– Keep from pressing, just a good solid swing, good far left arm
– Keep left shoulder up in the air, Keep head behind the ball, Hold head tilt,
Practice with eyes shut

During practice on the final day of the 1999 US Open, Tracy noticed that Payne was moving his head on his putts. She told him to “just keep your head down”. After he won the tournament (his second US Open), he embraced her and said, “I kept my head down all day”.

He cherished her words of wisdom!

These comments are meant to be an inspiration to all of us. Most of us don’t have a coach but we should write down our WORDS OF WISDOM for a quick reference when we wonder why our game is going off track.

Take notes on your success factors. Continuously update them as your game improves. That list will help you improve your game. Practice with GOLFSTR+ to apply YOUR Words of Wisdom for every swing in your game. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Golf Gizmo’s Make you Think!

There are so many golf training aids on the market promising 4 more yards or 20 more yards or 50 more yards. If you buy 3 or 4 of these gizmos, you should be a scratch golfer in no time. Fat chance! The real benefit of buying a gizmo is that you are paying attention to specific areas of your swing. Unfortunately, your golf swing is a complex set of motions where one fix may only be part of your complex solution.

Example of a new Putting Gizmo:
Recently I saw a new gizmo which claimed that it would make you a better putter in 2 minutes. Actually the claim was that you would improve your aim in 2 minutes. The gizmo was a pointer that you attach to your putter shaft to improve your ability to point the putter face directly at your target line. Unfortunately the putter face lineup is only one of the steps to make a putt. That gizmo had no impact on all of the other critical issues to possibly sink your putt:

1/Develop a feel for the speed of the greens.
2/ Understand the anticipated break based on the slope of green.
3/ Choose the right target line.
4/ Know the right amount of back-swing needed to hit your ball 12 inches past the hole.
5/ Avoid swinging in an arc as the pointer face will constantly change directions.
5/ Hit your ball dead center on the sweat spot of your putter.
6/ Keep your eyes focused on the ball instead of a pointer as it arcs around your body.
7/ Avoid side spin by swinging directly up your target line at the point of impact.

A pointer on your putter might help if you have a problem lining your putter face up to your target point but I can’t imagine that there are too many people who can’t do that without a pointer. I am also seeing grips with a ridge on the grip to help you match your grip with the face of your club. Give your brain a little more credit than that.

That pointer gizmo is actually just a good wake-up call to fix your putting stroke.

Learn to sink more putts by locking your leading wrist. Practice with GOLFSTR+ to build confidence by rocking your shoulders to make more putts.

8/ Lock your leading wrist using GOLFSTR+  strapped to your leading wrist. Avoid using the small shaky muscles in your wrist to guide your stroke. Use the large muscles in your back and shoulders to create a continuous rocking motion to putt up your target line.

There are lots of Gizmos to help your game but GOLFSTR+ is the Swiss Army Knife of them all. It give you 6 swing fixes and will help you with every swing in your game. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Golf is 3 Games in 1

Yes, it’s 3 games that you play against yourself on every hole that you play.  If you think of it this way, it will help you perform better on every round you play.  Game 1 is: drives landing in the fairway. Game 2 is: hitting Greens In Regulation (GIR)Game 3 is: avoiding 3 putts.  Of course hitting it close for a 1 putt green is a bonus.  The best part of this approach is that every hole is a new set of games that you play against yourself.

When your play these “games”, keep your score by placing a dot in the upper left corner of your score card square for each hole where your drive lands in the fairway (or in a good location for your second shot).  Place a dot in the upper right corner if you hit the green in regulation (or a good putting location).  Enter your number of putts in the lower right corner.   As you improve your totals for each of the 3 games, your scores will drop.

Driving Game: In this game you should pay attention to the shape of your shot and the shots that give you the best distance.  Of course the longer the shot the easier it is to hit your GIR.

>A longer swing path with a straight leading arm does not have to reach horizontal in the backswing.  Just make sure that you force your shoulder rotation in the backswing with a straight leading arm to build power in your swing.

>Limit your backswing so that you can keep your head down and eye on the ball (without bending your leading arm).   If you focus on keeping your leading arm straight, over time your will improve your shoulder rotation and increase your distance.  Swinging with a straight leading arm is critical for consistent hits but it takes time to change from a baseball swing to a golf swing.

>Start your down swing with your hip. Swing from the inside up the slot by flattening your swing plane to hold your lag and whip your club up the slot for more power.  Jim McLean does this with a slight loop at the top: swing straight back and create a slight loop at the top to swing on a lower plane up the slot from the inside to outside across the ball.

GIR Game: It’s all about direction control.  You know the club that should reach the green, so choose a less lofted club and swing with slightly less speed & a lot more control.   If there are too many hazards around the green or the green is too elevated, land your shot in a safe area where you can chip your next shot close to the hole to make sure that you minimize your putts.

Green Game: Getting 1 putt on a green is wonderful but your goal is to avoid 3 putt greens.

>Reading the right break is critical to minimize your second putt.  You can only learn this with practice and getting a feel for the speed of the green for each day when you play.

>Practice the swing speed that you know will pass the hole by up to a feet (even if you are only 1 or 2 feet from the hole) to avoid direction changes from bumps and the major break as the ball slows down.  [Stop trying to make the perfect putt to die into the hole.  Get that out of your mind.] Then step up and make the same swing (before your muscles freeze up and your mind starts to think up excuses to miss the putt— stay focused).

>Don’t stand over the ball thinking for 5 seconds like Jason Dufner at the Players on the 18th hole where he missed a 3 foot putt and then a 2 foot putt.  Nerves caused him to short-putt on many of his closing holes before the 18th.  Those 2 putts missed on the 18th cost him $770,000 by moving from second to a tie for 5th.


Golf  is a game that you play against yourself.  Play these 3 games on every hole and forget about what your partners are doing.  Total your scores on all 3 games so that you can set your own personal records.  The more you play these games, the lower your score will drop.

Is your Face or Path Killing Shots ?

It is amazing to watch the flight path of golf balls when they uses a tracer line during tournament broadcasts on TV. The balls start out left or right and then draw or fade before they drop out of the sky. Occasionally we even see the dreaded straight ball when least expected. Unfortunately recreational golfers tend to make more dramatic hooks and slices. You will never be a good golfer if you don’t know how to control your impact direction as well as your draw or fade.

The following descriptions are all from a right handed golfer’s point of view.

Control Your Ball’s Flight Path
CLUB FACE DIRECTION is responsible for 85% of the INITIAL direction of the ball. So a closed club face will pull left and an open club face will push right at the point of impact. Choosing your club face direction at setup is only half of your problem. As your grip pressure changed more with one hand or the other during you back and down swing, you may be changing your club face direction. That’s why a light to moderate grip pressure with both hands allows your leading wrist to return to the identical setup direction at impact.

Get ride of that slice. Close your club face slightly at setup and make sure that you are swinging from the inside to out across your ball for a nice draw.

Unfortunately SWING PATH can cause most of the SHAPE of your shot to curve left or right. Your swing path at the point of impact causes side spin. Golf swing path causes the ball to travel in the opposite direction as the club face smashes across the surface of the ball.
Swinging from inside of your target line to outside of your target line (away from your body), will spin your ball back to the left side of your target line.
Swinging from (over the top) outside of your target line and across your ball to the inside of the target line, will slice your ball to the right of your target line.

Recreational Golfer’s Solution
Most recreational golfers tend to slice the ball. If your club face is open at impact and your swing path is from (over the top) outside to in, you are guaranteed to create a major slice. A tight grip will just guaranty a major slice.

1/ Setup with a light grip pressure and stay consistent throughout the swing.
2/ Swing wide and up to the top so that you will loop and swing from the inside, up the slot or up the target line.
3/ An alternate suggestion is to take your trailing foot 2 inches back of the line parallel to your target line.
4/ Keep your eye on the ball through impact or you will lift your swing plane and slice or top the ball.
5/ Finish Your Swing: Complete your swing up your target line into a balanced finish as your watch your amazing shot draw into your target line.

You will never be a good golfer if you don’t focus on the basics. Practice with GOLFSTR+ to control your elbow and wrist for every swing in your game. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Let Your Club do the Work!

Have you ever wondered why the harder you swing the worse the result? It has to do with your mind as your game progresses. If you are “tight” when you start your round, you tend to swing with a tight grip, tight wrists and tight muscles in your arms. You try to “muscle” your swing with your arms. You can get so much more out of every swing if you loosen up your body and your shoulder rotation. Let the weight of your club do the work as it releases or whips through the ball.

You may be rushed to get to the course or the weather may be cold, windy and wet but why should we be so uptight; swing with brute force; grip it and rip it and swing harder & faster . Yes, they are all negative for our games and we need to find a way to overcome these problems every time we setup for a swing.

Webb Simpson won the Players with a calm and focused mind. He did it by hitting fairways and greens and you can do it too.

Here is a basic list of thoughts to keep in our minds every time we play a round of golf. It’s all about letting your body relax and letting your clubs do the work.

Arrive Relaxed: Avoid rushing to the golf course with hard rock music playing on the radio. Running to the first tee will get your blood pumping but the results will be a disaster.

Stretch Exercises: Stretch the night before, hours before your tee time as well as within 30 minutes of your tee time. The closer you get to your tee time the more dynamic your stretching should be: Leg swings, swing 2 clubs in both directions and bent trunk rotations.

Weather Check: If it’s cool or windy, dress for warmth or give your mind a wind reality check. Accept the fact that there is wind: change your club selection according to the direction of the wind. Don’t rush or shorten your back swing as the wind will tend to put your mind in a hyper active state. [Believe me it is much worse when you wear hearing aids.]

Calm and Relaxed: Use a consistent setup and always start it with a deep relaxing breathe to calm your mind and muscles. I see Phil Mickelson and many other pros do it and you should too..

Relaxed Grip: Before every swing, check that you don’t have a death grip on your club. Squeezing your grip will tighten your wrists and your arms. It also kills your release.

Let your Club Lag Naturally: When your muscles are relaxed, you can feel the weight of the head of each club in your backswing. [Don’t muscle through your swing!] Let the weight of the head of your club feel heavy as it creates a natural lag with your relaxed wrists. Then start your down swing with your hips as you unwind your torso and arms and you finally whip your wrists through impact.

The end of your grip is flared so that you can use a light grip with your hands and avoid letting the club slip out of your hands. Practice every swing in your game with GOLFSTR+ before your round to feel the weight of your club head. Let it do the work during every swing. If you can’t feel the weight of your club head during your back swing, you are gripping too hard. Practice with GOLFSTR+ and buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Bring YOUR Brain When You Golf

I have often read that you should clear your mind and then just swing your club for the perfect result. DON’T BELIEVE IT. That may work if you are a robot but you will not be successful if you are not focused on a simple swing thought. Each golfer needs his own triggers to make the right swing for the shot that you want. Without mental preparation you are headed for DISASTER!

Don’t fall back into your old swing problems. This often happens after you par or birdie a hole and step up to the next tee feeling invincible. [Its called the “PBSU- Post Birdie Screw-Up” ] You forget to focus on the swing that will create the shot that you want. You swing a little faster and boom – there goes that dreaded slice or hook or topped ball. What were you thinking?   NOTHING ?

Successful golfers use their brain to plan and feel every swing. Use your key swing thought to control your swing for each shot.

If the game of golf was a no-brainer, you would par every hole. You really do need to focus on the game to make every shot count. Your mind needs to be focused on a SIMPLE PLAN FOR EACH SHOT

Know Your Big Miss. Are you: Slicing, Hooking, Duck Hooking, Topping or Hitting it Fat?

If you don’t know what causes each of these shots, then you better find out by taking a lesson or checking it out on the internet. Take your solution to the range and practice the right swing. Most swing problems are caused by swinging too hard and too fast. We all do it. DON’T starting your swing with shoulder rotation at the top which will create an outside to inside swing path and you will probably fall back as your follow-through (which also causes you to top your ball).

Interesting Result as seen On the Golf Channel
During a recent Web.com tournament the commentators remarked that they could not see a difference in the slow motion, side by side, replay of the tournament leader (Maverick McNealey) with a downwind, perfect drive on a hole as compared to a drive into the wind which was pulled low and into the rough a few holes later.

So I replayed the side by side video about 20 times to look for changes in his swing. I could see very slight changes in the speed of the takeaway; the position at the top and the swing path down to the ball but the important change was a slight “over the top” early shoulder rotation at the start of his transition. The wind must have been playing tricks with his mind.

My POINT here is that there is very little difference between a perfect shot and a bad shot. Use your mind to focus on the swing that you want in order to make the shot.

Use Your Memory and Mind to Plan your Swing
Before you make each shot: select the right club that will reach your target when you swing at 90% of your swing speed; take that 90% practice swing with a balanced finish; setup comfortably up to the ball and execute your planned swing.

I say words in my mind to slow my swing down for both the practice swing and my planned swing: “Sweep Innn Pose”. [“Sweep Innnn” during my controlled takeaway with wrist lag and a reminder to start my down swing by pushing in with my hip as I swing from inside. “Pose” is the reminder to impact as I say the letter P and hold my balanced finish.]  Saying words in your mind will eliminate other thoughts and will control the tempo for your swing.

Learn to use your mind when you practice on the range with your GOLFSTR+ for every swing in your game. Then take you brain to the course to execute the swing you need for every shot. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Is Tiger Over the Hill at 42?

I think NOT!  We should all take a lesson from Tiger on things you may want to do or NOT do to be successful in golf. We all know that Tiger was on the edge of beating Jack Nicklaus and every other golfer in most of the important records in golf. Now that it appears that Tiger is back on the right path, let’s take stock of the changes that he had to make to get back on track.

I got on Tigers Band Wagon when he turned 42 in December 2017, about 11 months after his last spinal fusion operation. He placed 9th out of 18 pros participating in the Hero World Challenge. That was pretty amazing but it was miraculous that he had more birdies than anyone of the other competitors. Sure he had some bogies that put him in 9th place but his success proved that he has the skills to drive, chip and putt, just like the good old days. All he has to do is improve his consistency and he will be a winner.

At 59, in 2009, Tom Watson missed winning The Open when he missed 2 shots on the final hole. It was a mental collapse but his success shows us all that a win is always possible when you are older than 30. Sure there have been 8 different winners this year so far and a lot of them are in their 20’s but Tiger is gunning for them.

Rory McIlroy said that it would be the greatest comeback in sports history if Tiger won the Masters. Unfortunately he placed tied for 32. The pressure at that tournament was still beyond Tiger. But there is hope as he can still create miracle shots. He just has to put more of them together.

Tiger and Stevie remember so many great shots. This is definitely a Sunday round in his traditional red shirt. (2005 with a chip-in on the 16th at Augusta to win his 4th Masters)

A recent PGA weekly blog by the 2013 PGA National Teacher of the Year, Lou Guzzi stated: “Tiger Woods is excelling with a focus on ‘feel.’ He’s not overthinking. He’s imagining the shot he wants to hit and then he hits it.”

Guzzi mentioned a funny story about one time when the great Bobby Jones was asked what he thought about when he swung a club. Replied Jones: “The last thing that worked.” That is exactly where Tiger needs to be (and what we all need to do).  USE YOUR MIND TO REMEMBER SUCCESS AND THEN DO IT. Keep your focus on the feel for each shot. Remember your great shots and then just duplicate that calm, focused swing.

Tiger knows this. His focus is on the feel for the shot but even more important is the consistency of the shot that he is trying to make. It’s a reminder for all of us to not let our minds take over with a killer swing that will ruin our shots.

Prediction:  Tiger Will Win (if not this week, soon)
Tigers returns to Quail Hollow and the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo Championship this week in Charlotte, N.C. His last win was on this course in 2007. It was his 57th career victory. The then-31-year-old Woods finished with a 13-under 275, the lowest score in the history of the tournament at that time. I’m expecting at least a top 3 finish this week for Tiger.

Tiger is not over the hill! He and you can control every shot with mental focus and an internal feel for the shot you want to make. Practice with GOLFSTR+ and achieve those same great shots when you take your game to the course. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

Fewer Putts Win Games!

I was hoping to write about Tiger’s success at the Masters this week but Patrick Reed stole the show with his putting on those extremely difficult Augusta greens. He really reminded us that if you can chip it close or putt it close, you can win this game. His 80 foot putt on the 17th green hit the hole to keep his ball at 6 feet for the par putt. He did many things right but that one saved the day. It also reminds us how important putting is for our games.

GolfRX also pointed out a “staggering statistic wrecking golf… 41.6% of your shots are putts.” So you better pay attention.

To help you catch up with Patrick’s game, Golf Tips Magazine released an article by Tom Patri, PGA, TP Golf Schools, Naples Florida about his favorite putting secrets. Following are the jewels of his article:

The more you practice, the better you putt and the more confidence you gain. But you do need sound fundamentals and practice routines for direction control and distance control. Putting is a skill developed by FEEL (for the green speed as the conditions change, even throughout your round). With practice, you will learn to adjust for the feel for each putt. Eventually you will believe that you can sink every putt and your skill will improve.

Setup with the ball forward of the center of your stance to hit up on the ball for the right roll. Hit dead center on the putter face using the “Gate Drill”.

There are no short cuts to being a great putter like Jordan Spieth or Ben Crenshaw. Reading greens and then making the right putt will make you a great putter.  More experience will give you the feel for better results.  So learn the right setup and swing and practice with putting games to improve your skill.

1/ Setup: ball position (forward of middle, under your left breast), eye line-up (over the target line), balanced stance, light grip and a square putter face through impact.
2/ Head and lower body are locked on the ball while the arms swing square through impact.  Then hold for 2 seconds after impact (don’t look up, dummy).
3/ Flat Wrist Locked: Practice with GOLFSTR+ to learn to swing with a locked leading wrist to control your square club face up your target line (not at the hole).

Keep Your Mind Quiet
“A quiet ‘coconut’ ensures contact at the center of the putter face which is vital to the player’s athletic brain calibrating swing speed and distance control.  Speed control, I feel, is the most critical skill to be developed to become a great putter.”

Lag Drill: Put 4 tees in a 4 x 4 foot square at about 30 feet from your starting point. Then putt 3 balls at a time from different positions as you move toward the hole. Getting it inside the 4 X 4 square ensures a 2 foot second putt.

Gate Drill: Practice putting through a gate setup with 2 tees spread out a little wider than the length of your putter head. Making every putt from the dead center of your putter is key for straight putts up your target line.   For 5 or 10 foot putts, place a second gate of tees about half way to the hole.

Practice putting using your GOLFSTR+ to keep your leading wrist locked so that you can hit every putt on the dead center of your putter. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com

How do the MASTERS Deal with Nerves?

You would think that Tiger could deal with first tee jitters on the first day of the Masters. Well he put his drive into the trees and had to create a  miracle shot to par the first hole.  On the 4th day the final paring of Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy also blew their first hole tee shots . If they have first tee jitters, how are we supposed to take control before every one of our shots? David Leadbetter came up with some pretty sensible ideas that I felt you should consider.

If you have been reading any of the recent GOLFSTR Swing Tips, you should know that your physical and mental preparation is critical for every round of golf.

Jason Day visualizes his shot as he relaxes his mind and body.

A. Getting to the driving range and practice green are extremely important to test out your swing thoughts  for each club and to get a feel for the speed of the greens.
B. Even more important is your ability to warm up your muscles for flexibility. You need a full range of motion before you make your first drive.


Confidence in your swing is only going to happen if you work on it. Know that your straight arm swing and balanced finish will produce the results that you want. But you need 3 keys to make every swing click:
1/ Relax your mind as you select the right club and recall how you have executed amazing results in the past. Focus on what went right for you so that you can make a Calm and Relaxed swing.
2/ Focus on deep breathing techniques in between shots and in your pre-shot routine. This makes your muscles contract and your nerves are instantly calmed.
3/ Maintain a light grip pressure throughout the round. Fear causes you to tense up your grip. David Leadbetter suggests that you should “Try to imagine tension and nerves leaving your body” as you loosen your grip pressure.

Build confidence for every swing in your game with GOLFSTR+. When you feel tension remember to focus on positive swing memories, breathe deeply and loosen your grip. Remember these 3 thoughts and improve the consistency of your swing by practicing with GOLFSTR+. Buy one today at www.golfstr.com
