How To Play Better Golf... It?s Not What You Think
Playing better golf is the lifelong pursuit of every golfer on the planet. Why else would we subject ourselves to one of the most humbling games (sport) ever?
I mean, how many times have you come off the course ready to give it up?
I'm dead serious!
You drive home saying never again! But?you go to the range the next day, or even the same day, after you've cooled down.
Man, what a glutton for punishment! Just hours before, you got totally humiliated, and now you're back for more.
The vicious cycle a golfer goes through every season.
So let me guess. You've bought equipment (lots of it). Taken lessons. And pound hundreds of balls every week.
Am I close?
The 6 million dollar question is?have you gotten better? Are you happy with your game? Are you driving it as far as you'd like?
If not, what now?
There's only one thing left.
You're body is keeping you from the game of your dreams. The game you know you're capable of playing. Doesn't that make sense? If you've tried all the above and still are not satisfied.
Here's what you have to do?immediately!
Diagnose your limitations. Is it strength? Is it flexibility? Or how about stamina? You know it's a strength issue, if your swing mechanics are good, but you're not hitting the ball any amount of distance.
It's a flexibility issue if you if you can't perform consistent swings with proper mechanics. And it's obviously a stamina issue if your back nine is worse than your front nine.
Once you come up with your personal limitations, you've got to set up a program, or search one out that will get you on the right track and not hurt your game.
Working on your limitations will get you the quickest results, in the shortest amount of time. You'll be amazed at how much better your swing is and how much farther you're hitting the ball.
Your golf will become enjoyable again, and you'll wonder why you didn't take this approach years ago.
Remember, it's NEVER too late to start!
So get to it right now!

The Psychology of a Confident Golf Swing Part 2
Here in England we are on the verge of the new football season and there is a large amount of transfer speculation and the like occurring. With football, we often find that the players who are doing well are confident. When they are having a great spell of the season, scored a lot of goals or something like that, their competence escalates as they feel more confidence. When their confidence is knocked, they might go through a bad spell and often their skills seem to be less available. My point here is that of self image and how we perceive ourselves. This is true with our golf swing also.
Why Golf Training Products Don?t Work For Most

The Top 10 Life Lessons from Golf
Golf is an amazing mirror of life. Yes, other sports provide life lessons as well, but golf happens to be my favorite sport and the one I understand the best. It is an addiction, a mystical experience, a test of character, an escape, a source of rare joy and excruciating pain. No psychological test will tell you as much about a person's character as a round of golf. With the arrival of spring, here are some of my observations about golf and the game of life:

Mental Training for Golfers: Attitudes that Sabotage Commitment
Plateaus in performance sometimes occur when you don't see any measurable improvement in score even though you are working hard. "I'm practicing more than ever, but I don't seem to be shooting better scores," many players tell me in frustration. Thus, when you don't see gains in performance or have a coach pushing you daily, it is difficult for golfers to stay committed to their training. In this issue of Peak Performance Golf Insights, I discuss how golfers lose or sabotage their own commitment to training and ideas for how to increase commitment.
Get Moving and Save Strokes
Whether you walk the course or ride a cart, a round of golf can leave the aerobically unfit golfer dragging by the late holes. Aerobic training improves lung capacity, circulation, and muscular endurance and leads to better performance and better overall health. The benefits of being aerobically fit aren't limited to physical performance; studies have shown aerobic exercise to improve resistance to mental stress (a major plus for the golfer). A dedicated aerobic training plan will help you save stokes by allowing you to maintain peak physical and mental performance throughout the round.
Master Flexibility Training And You?ll Conquer The Playing Field In Golf
Is it difficult to rotate your body through the full range of motion in your golf swing? Do you stop short on your back swing? Lack of flexibility can adversely affect not only your golf game, but your health as well. Different muscles are called upon at different points in the golf swing. If you are not flexible you are more prone to injuries. Your body will try to overcompensate by engaging other joints and muscles that are not ready for the stress and strain of the movement.
