Learn golf tips for beginners on how to make sense of the game in this free instructional video series on golf technique and curing your golf swing.
we're searching for the secret of golf. Do you notice that in your search; when you read a theory, hear a theory, that it makes sense? That everything makes sense? I was with four guys, and someone said that on your back swing you should swing flat like Ben Hogan because then the club stays low to the ground for a longer period of time and it's easier to make solid contact. And I said, you know you're right. Then the next person said you should swing upright like Jack Nicolas because the more upright, the longer the club goes down the line, and the straighter you'll hit the ball. I said, you know you're right. The third one said, you should swing somewhere in between, like Tiger Woods, because it's more natural, and the more natural something is, the easier it is to repeat. I said, you know, you're right. And the fourth person said, Jay, they just said three completely different things, and for each one you said you're right and I said, you know, you're right. Well, the secret of golf: feels great, works great. It's not theory. Find something that works for you. Is it upright? Try it. See if you like it. Is it flat? Try it. See if you like it. Is it somewhere in between? Try it. The biggest thing is to find something that feels great and works great because that is the secret of golf.
