Stop Trying to Hole Putts - and do this instead!

Stop trying to hole putts?

Isn't that what you're meant to do?


Well, yes and no.
Read on... (from Jeff Richmond.) 

When you're putting your goal should be for the ball to
go in the hole.  But here's the thing...

Have you ever hit a putt that you thought was perfect but
for some reason the ball didn't fall in?

So what happened -- didn't you try hard enough?

Maybe if you tried a bit harder the ball would have gone 
in.

Obviously that's stupid thinking.

But when I watch a lot of people putting, they are trying 
really hard!  I'm not pointing fingers either, because 
recently I've been guilty of this too.  

Everyone knows with putting that there's luck involved.  
You can hit a perfect putt and the ball may not go in.  
You can hit a putt that you swear was going to miss and 
it goes in.

So why do we steer putts?

When you watch the pros on T.V, very rarely do you see 
them steer putts.  They put a nice stroke on the ball, hold 
their finish, and watch the outcome.

But most "average" golfers stroke the ball, never hold their 
finish, and are trying to guide the ball into the hole with 
their putter and body.

Or in other words, trying too hard. 

Look, when you putt you shouldn't overemphasize that you 
are trying to hole the putt.  You shouldn't say things like 
"I need to hole this" or "come on, try really hard to hole this".  

That sort of thinking creates tension.  And when you're tense 
while putting, for some reason the ball does not fall in.  

Instead, here's what you should do...

Pick a line and pace for each putt and focus on hitting the putt 
along the line you've chosen with good speed, then let the 
outcome take care of itself.  Instead of trying to hole the putt 
you should be trying to do the task of putting as well as you 
can.  Then, again, let the outcome take care of itself. 

What I'm talking about is focus.  Focus on something you can control, e.g. your putting routine, your putting stroke, your mental attitude, your line, your speed.

Don't focus on something 

you can't control, i.e. trying to hole the ball. 

Do this the next time you putt and you will hole more putts 
without trying.

However, this entire concept relates to every shot you you play.  

Because if you're overly tense and steering your putts, you're 
more than likely going to be overly tense on your drives, your iron shots, your pitch shots, your chip shots, bunker shots, etc. 

If as you're reading this and thinking about your golf game you think that you're often steering your shots and feel tense at the end of your swings, then this is a major problem for you.

And the only way you're going to improve your golf game is by learning how to hit shots with ONLY the necessary amount of tension.

To 
help you do this I explain in depth what you need to do and give you audios to guide you through the process needed to do it... in this Mental Golf Mastery Program.




That's right, I will explain in step-by-step detail how to hit your golf shots with only the necessary amount of tension needed to hit great shot after great shot, like you know you're capable of.

I have a special on this program right now that teaches you how to do this, but it's only available until for a limited time... So go here right now to check it out and learn once and for all how to hit your shots with freedom...

==> The Mental Golf Mastery Program

Here's what one golfer said after going through this program:

“I love playing golf BUT the mental stress I would experience
when playing golf was wearing me out.  I just wanted to relax
and enjoy my games without worry.  That was the main reason I tried this program.  I am now pleased to report that I can now play my games stress free.  As a result I enjoy playing golf more and I have dropped about 7 strokes from my scores.  That is nice but it was more important to me to play without the stress and worry.  Thanks to your program I achieved this goal. It’s the best mental training program I’ve ever seen!”

Have You Seen Your Self on Video?

Ever had someone video your golf swing?

If you've done this you were probably shocked
at what your swing ACTUALLY looked like.  I 
certainly was the first time I saw my swing
on video. 

And like me, you probably had no idea that you 
actually swung the club like it appears on video.

But the truth is...video doesn't lie.

How your swing appears on video is how it is.

There's no getting around that fact.  

And in the results page for the golf swing test I said 
that the golf swing test you took would give you a 
very good indication as to whether or not you 
have a swing plane problem or not.  

But to get the most accurate picture (no pun intended :-)) 
I suggested you take a video of your swing with a driver and
see at two places in your swing whether you have 
a problem with your swing plane.

The two critical places you need to check in your
swing plane are explained and shown here:

==> THE FREE GOLF SWING TEST!

So if you failed the golf swing test or even if you
passed you can get confirmation about whether or
not you have a swing plane problem simply by getting
a video of your swing done and then looking at your
swing at the two places I suggest in the results page.

If you seriously want to hit the ball longer, straighter 
and more consistently you'll do this.

And as most digital cameras have a video function
on them you should be able to do this even if you
don't have a video camera.

Before You Buy Golf Clubs As A Senior Golfer ...

Before You Buy Golf Clubs As A senior Playing Golf ...
Buying your first set of golf clubs can seem daunting with all the choices out there. To take away some of the confusion I have listed some things to keep in mind before you go out to get your first set of golf clubs.
Be Clear About Your Golf Goals

If you identify realistic goals before you set out to buy, it will make the process of buying clubs much easier. If you're deeply committed to golf and plan to play every day, then obviously you'll want to spend more time, money and effort on a set of clubs than if you only intend to play twice a year with your brother-in-law.


Assessing Your Levels of Dedication and Interest


By honestly assessing your dedication to golf, you can more easily determine how much to spend, and on what quality of clubs. How much will you be practicing? Will you be willing to take lessons? If you aren't willing to go that far, then you're probably better off going with a cheaper pair of clubs. If you plan to practice regularly, and take lessons, then you may want something more expensive.


New or Used Clubs?


Used clubs are probably a good choice if you aren't sure about your commitment or have a history of taking up hobbies and losing interest in them after a short time. Because they'll be cheaper than new clubs, they can be replaced more easily later.


Budgeting

A set of clubs can be extremely expensive. If you have enough money and you're willing to spend on top-quality equipment, then by all means do so. However, for most people the amount of money spent will correlate to how dedicated they are. A good idea for if you're just setting out, though, is to look for an inexpensive first set - that way, you won't have wasted as much money if you don't continue playing.


Shaft Options - The Basics


The two differences in golf shafts that beginners should keep in mind are shaft composition (graphite or steel) and shaft flex (the amount of bend in the shaft during your swing). Steel is sturdier and cheaper, but graphite is lighter, so it will generate more swing speed.

Women and older players will benefit most from graphite shafts that have a softer flex. Stronger, younger men may go with regular or stiffer shafts, but remember that many teaching say too many golfers use shafts with too much stiffness. If you'd like to get more details about proper shaft selection consider getting the Senior Golfers Guide, a 210 page ebook created especially for the Senior Golfer.

Senior Golfers Guide

Getting a Clubfitting


If you're getting a new set of clubs, a clubfitting is an option. A clubfitting, lasting about half an hour, is an option offered by many teaching pros. If you don't want that, at least getting a measurement in a pro shop will ensure that the clubs you choose are well-suited to your body. If you are a 5-foot-10 male, then the standard clubs straight off the rack will fit you. However, if that description doesn't fit you very well, you might want to get fitted.


Easier Golf with the Right Clubs


Of course, nothing will take the place of a good swing, but as a novice golfer you can make it easier on yourself by choosing clubs that are designed specifically for higher-handicappers - known as "game improvement clubs". You should choose irons that are cavity-backed and perimeter-weighted. Investigate "hybrid" sets, in which utility clubs replace the long irons - that is, the 3-, 4- and occasionally 5-irons. Go for more loft (i.e. 12 degrees), not less, when choosing a driver. Don't pay attention to what kind of clubs the Tour players use.


Ask Questions, Seek Advice


If you have friends who play, ask them for advice. Ask at a pro shop or golf pro for recommendations. Get some idea of what you're really looking for. When you've done all this, and you're ready to buy, remember to shop around. Range and price will always differ from one outlet to another, whether you're shopping at pro shops, department stores, or garage sales. Just keep in mind your price range and only buy clubs within that range. If you would like more detailed advice we recommend getting the Senior Golfers Guide, a great resource for older golfers. It's just $29.50, and we think this is money well spent.

Tiger Woods | Return of the Golf Jedi?

Return of a Golf Jedi Master...

As you may know, if you follow me on Social Media at all, I not only am a golf nut I am also a Star Wars Geek and if we are going to talk about a Master at the game of golf I have to include references to the Masters of "the Force" as well. ~ just my thing


Photo courtesy of upi.com

Love him or hate him Tiger Woods is one of the Masters of golf with out a doubt and if he has been away (not unlike Luke Skywalker) healing, meditating, practicing for his return then we must ask these questions.



Will we see a more confident and wiser Tiger Woods unleashing his new Taylormade M2 Driver on his foes striking first to make the "cut"?

Will he simply slide into his seat among the "Jedi Golf Council" only to let his presence be known when guidance and reflection is needed by the younger Jedi golf generation?

Will he be able to use the force "his experience" to successfully navigate the daily grind of a PGA professionals schedule and get back on track to a level of mastery not unlike the great Golf "Jedi" Masters... Jack Nicolas, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player?      

Photo Courtesy of golbytourmiss.com


We shall see the answers to these questions and many more I'm sure in the next few weeks as the media will have a field day analyzing and over analyzing everything master Woods does, says or contemplates while on and off the course.

For those that have not googled or watched various interviews to date here is what we expect to see in this Jedi's arsenal.

A new Sponsor will be on the bag Monstor Drinks
His Nike Irons will still be in play ...
And the earlier mentioned Taylormade M2 Driver  will be the "lightsaber / driver" of choice.

Although not a huge Tiger Woods fan myself I certainly respect his mastery of the game and I do hope the best for his return. He obviously has had a tremendous career to this point but the saga continues at a Golf Course Far, Far away ... Albany Golf Course, The Bahamas 

Will he be lost to the dark side of the force if his play is not up to par? Will he succumb to the evil empire of hype and media backlash with a missed cut or worse yet another injury leaving him like a Darth Vader to survive but still wanting more power and fame?

Will the light side of the force prevail, with the aid of the "Resistance" (his fan base), to win yet again?  Will he navigate the sand (people) traps of his golf world by blowing up those that criticize his return ( with great scores) ... before the evil empire ( media) take down his home world?

My vision is clouded and the future I do not see.

My best advise for this return of this golf Jedi is to remember the wise words from Master Yoda... "Do or do not. There is no try."

The Sunday Par 3 Driving Range Practice Carry Golf Bag

THE PRO ACTIVE SUNDAY GOLF BAG | REVIEW

One of the consistent needs to any golf game is the time, location and equipment for practice.

One of the obstacles to achieving those practice goals may be lugging that whole bag of  golf equipment with us when we have other obligations to meet through out the day as well.

Catching a few minute at the range during lunch or after work becomes a much simpler process when we just grab a couple clubs to work on instead of the the distraction of the "whole bag" staring us down.

Practice also becomes much more effective when you just carry the clubs you know you want to work on prior to that big outing coming up next weekend.

Take a moment and check out the "The Sunday, Par 3, Driving Range, Practice, Carry Golf Bag ...


   


Some of the best and most productive practice days I have played has been using this bag. Walking 9 holes after work or a couple hours before sunset is refreshing and less stressful than lugging the big bag around. ... and it's good exercise!

READY FOR YOUR NEW GOLF BAG? .... >>> GO HERE TO REVIEW OR PURCHASE! 

I enjoy riding carts as much as anybody and I can't play 18 with out one but for the Driving Range, Par 3 Executive Course or walking 9 at the local municipal course, this bag is a perfect addition to your golf equipment inventory.

5 Minutes To Great Putting | Possible Putting



Below is a very important tip that will help you improve your putting. And as you know, anytime you improve your putting, your scores drop!

This tip is from Jeff Richmond and Jeff has recently released a newly updated putting improvement program called: 5 Minutes To GREAT Putting.
You can find out more about that by going ...>>> HERE!




Now here is the tip from Jeff on how you can improve your putting today! 
_____________________________________________

*Possible Putting by Jeff Richmond*

There's times when you're about to putt and you just feel that you're going to hole the putt. You can't describe why you feel that way, but you do. For most of us, that feeling does not come often enough.
But you can make that feeling happen more and more, and I'm going to explain how.

Now if you run across a really good putter you'll find that they almost hole everything. If the ball doesn't go in it will be very close to going in.

And if you got in their head you'll find that they are trying to make everything they look at.

They don't have thoughts about 3 putting or anything negative like that. Instead, they are focused on doing whatever is necessary to hole the putt.

Great putters believe they can hole every putt!

Do they hole every putt?

No.

But they believe they can.

And just because they miss some putts, it doesn't stop them from thinking the next one is going in.
However, you just can't go thinking before every putt...

"I'm going to hole this putt... I'm going to hole this putt.... I'm going to hole this putt."

Because if you do that and you miss then you'll quickly lose confidence and belief in your putting.

But you can do the same type of thing without negative consequences when you miss. To do this you simply have to add two words to a positive statement and those two words are...

It's Possible

I don't know what you say to yourself when you get the feeling you're going to hole the putt. It might be something like...

"I'm going to hole this putt."

Or...

"This ball is going in the hole."


And like I said... if you were to say that before each putt, you would quickly get discouraged when you miss.


But if you add the words 'it's possible' to statements like that, then you can use them before each putt to help you be more confident in your putting. For example, before every putt, you could say...

It's possible I'm going to hole this putt
.


Or...

It's possible this ball is going in the hole.

See, every putt you face has the possibility of going in. So use that possibility to build up your confidence and belief every putt. If you do this and make it a habit then you'll be a better putter long term.

And speaking about being a better putter... I have just launched a newly updated putting system that will give you the best chance of putting as good as a Tour Pro.

To find out more about that simply go ...>>> HERE!

That's a great putting tip from Jeff. The next time you play golf, give it a try. I'm sure it will help you to putt better. And as Jeff said, make sure you check out his full putting improvement program to have the best chance of becoming a great putter.

Pro Putting Tip ...

This tip is from Jeff Richmond who is the creator of the 5 Minutes To GREAT Putting program that you can see here. So I'll leave you with Jeff...

*Professional Putting Tip*

Today I'm going to give you a simple (yet very powerful) putting tip that could help you to save a lot of strokes every time you play.

One putting tip can easily do that. Just look at Rory McIlroy for example... his putting has been very poor of late, and then he makes a small change to his right hand putting grip and wins the Deutsche
Bank Championship.

The more I look into putting improvement the more I think a lot of it relates to self-discipline, and here's one big tip to help you with this.

Putting

Every time you watch golf on T.V. you see a ton of putting by the pros. And there's one thing they all do that most amateurs and bad putters certainly don't do.

Next time you watch golf on T.V. notice how at the end of the pros putting strokes they all hold their finish. It might be for a second or some even longer.

Then, the next time you play with your buddies watch their finish, and I bet you won't see many hold their finish like the pros - UNLESS they are a good putter.

Instead, you'll see lots of waving the putter after the ball is hit. Like they're trying to control the ball somehow after it's been hit.

It seems like a subtle difference but...

Good putter - Holds the finish Bad putter - Doesn't hold the finish

Now if you're a bad putter and you start holding the finish are you going to start holing everything?

Probably not.

But I bet you'll putt better, and here's why.
Good putters make good, confident strokes and hold their finish. They're not trying to steer the ball
into the hole.

Bad putters make steering type of strokes and keep trying to steer the ball into the hole after they've hit it.

At the start of this article, I said that the more I look at putting improvement the more I think it relates to self-discipline, and that's especially true with this tip.

Holding your finish OR NOT is a habit.

If you want to improve your putting then make holding your finish a habit. To do this, simply every time you putt hold your follow-through for 3 seconds.

By doing this and making it a habit you'll "program" yourself to make good strokes without so much concern from trying to get the ball into the hole.

I'm sure you've heard the expression that "trying fails".

And that's especially true with putting.

If you try hard to steer the ball into the hole you'll often miss.

But if you make a good putting stroke and let the outcome take care of itself, you'll often get better results.

Putting accounts for about 43% of every game of golf you play, and this month I'm going to help you more to improve your putting so you take strokes off your scores. It really is the quickest and easiest place to do that, so stay tuned.

That tip was from Jeff Richmond and if you would like even more help with your putting so it's like a professional, go here to find out more about Jeff's great step
