A Holistic Approach To Better Golf


Other aspects to improvements

A holistic approach to better shots really means focusing on other elements that can be improved, other than the actual movement of hitting the golf ball. 

These are your Critical Success Factors

I use this tool and I find it helps me generate a much greater awareness of my actions throughout the day.

Try and think of 3-5 things you could start doing now which are not related to your swing technique but will help you become a better golfer.  How would you like improve yourself?

Here’s how it works.

The idea is that for each of the 3-5 disciplines, you give yourself a rating or a simple yes or no answer at the end of each day to whether you have achieved it or not. 

Do this every day for a month then reassess each discipline. 

You will need to be flexible and change some or all of them each month depending on how well you have done. 

Here are my current 5 disciplines:

  • Cups of tea and coffee (how many per day)
  • Posture Awareness (0-10 rating)
  • Eat a piece of fruit before midday
  • Fitness Training (exercise) (yes or no)
  • Drink 1 litre water per day (yes or no)

As you can see, these are related to improving my lifestyle by monitoring my caffeine intake, increasing my current water intake and generally being healthier.

All will undoubtedly move me towards playing better golf as I will be in better physical shape to do it and feel better about myself. 

This tool helps us reinforce these areas by having daily awareness of them which will eventually become automatic. 

If we fail to consistently reinforce them they will eventually dissipate.

Happy Golfing

How To Drive For Show

It’s time you stopped missing the fairway, got more distance off the tee and did it more often.

You’ve probably heard the phrase Drive For Show, Putt For Dough…

How much money do you think you would win if it takes you four shots before you reach the green?

Being able to hit the driver well requires a quality action and great timing.

When you hit a golf ball, one thing always remains constant and that is the 5 Laws and these represent how the club head is delivered to the ball at impact.

These laws are what cause the ball flight and spin

If You would you like to add distance to your drives and hit them longer and straighter, more often
