Another golf joke? … ?

By · Comments (5)

Golf is a lot of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic.

That’s not a joke, it’s true.
Millsson’s joke is great!

Look at the little map at the bottom to see how much power would be best. Also, look at the wind and try not to go over the power limit so the bar doesn’t go red and sway. Before you actually hit the ball, try swinging the club to get a feel of how much power to use.

Earlier this year i went to a golf pro and got help with my driving and my slice was gone and could hit a straight long drive allmost every time. Then i didn’t play for about 2 weeks and now i can’t hit my driver if my life depednded on it. Every time it goes about 200 yards and a million yards to the right i used to hit it about 250. I can hit my 3 wood straight but not my driver i have tried everything do u guys have any tips?

There’s numerous things that can be causing your slice. If you’re hitting the 3-wood straight but not your driver, I have to wonder if you’re "overswinging"? Often when people hit a driver, they want to try to kill it, as it’s supposed to be the longest club — so it’s a common mistake.

First, as always, check your grip, alignment, and ball-position. If all of these are spot-on, then it’s time to check your swing.

Next, check to make sure you aren’t over-rotating on the backswing. The best way to do this is to take some 3/4 backswings then follow-through. Still make your normal acceleration through the ball (swing aggressively as you normally would). See if there’s any difference in ball-flight using this partial backswing.

Then, make sure you aren’t muscling it on the downswing. Trying to muscle it (swinging with your arms) can often cause an outside-to-inside swing path which will cause a slice. Rotate with your legs and hips and let your arms just lag behind, and take a nice easy follow-through. Again see if there is any difference in ball flight.

If your grip/alignment/ball position are all correct, and you are still slicing the ball with a 3/4 backswing and a passive downswing/follow-through, then you’ll have to look at the other common causes of slices — i.e. lead-shoulder dip on backswing, outside-to-inside path on downswing, improper weight-shift, not releasing the club head properly through the impact zone.

2 Hockey : Wrist Shot fundamentalshttp://www.score100goals.com/newsletter.html You can learn more tips including written material on unique ways of looking at the game here.

The Wrist Shot

Many players overlook the wrist shot. You grow up practicing in your back yard, raising your hands when you actually raise the puck over the net for the first time. Then you put in on the back burner as you slice at the puck in your first attempts at a slapshot. But the wrist shot is your bread and butter, especially as a forward. You can catch the goalie off guard with a quick release and also hide the angle of your shot.

Players take this shot for granted but a few minor tweaks can add 5 to 10 mph to your top end speed. I created a Youtube video that highlights specific things (one of them I didn’t consciously realize until I was out of the game):

Drive Forward to your Target off the Back Foot: This isn’t basketball where you can have a fade away shot totally off balance. You need to push/drive yourself off the backfoot toward the net at the start of the shot.

Really create a torque by rotating your midsection: In golf, baseball, tennis, boxing, hockey, and many other sports the speed of the punch, ball, puck is largely based on how much torque you can create through the midsection/core of your body. The stronger your core muscles are the more balance and power you create.

Applying a lot of pressure to your Bottom Hand: This is the one that I didn’t realize was so important until catching Kovalev or maybe Kovalchuck mention it briefly in a mid-game interview. The more pressure you put on that bottom hand the more work your stick does by flexing and snapping through on release. You’re paying 200 a dollars for it so it might as well help you shoot faster. Shoot like you mean it. This is why, when you see a picture of a player releasing a wrist shot that he/she has that gritted teeth expression on their face. They’re putting everything they have into that bottom hand pressure.

Open your Front Foot: I have never seen a young player shoot a slapshot without opening their front foot to allow their hips to clear through. But many young players will keep that foot closed when shoot a wrist shot. This doesn’t allow you to fully employ the midsection torque noted above.

Snap your Bottom Hand at Release Point: Near the front feet at your release point you want to be snapping the bottom hand over.

Point Your Toe to the Target: For accuracy purpose you want to point the toe at the target. This should be stressed on low shots. Players that shoot high are already following through toward the top areas of the net. But when you tell them to shoot low they take 20% off the shot and baby it in there. The follow through is still high. You need to have the exact same motion, grit, and speed on the shot, only with a low follow through.

2 Golf Fitness Training: Using Resistance Tubing For Core Strengthhttp://www.performbettergolf.com/tubing – Golf Fitness Training Expert Mike Pedersen shows you a simple core strength resistance exercise in-home using tubing to improve core and upper body strength specific to the golf swing.

Pedersen’s belief is that for every swing fault there’s a physical limitation causing it. Get to the root cause, fix the limitation with golf exercises and stretches and the fault goes away, resulting in a more powerful and consistent golf swing.

That is why he has put together very effective golf swing training programs together that can be done in your home with minimal and very affordable equipment.
