SWING your swing. Literally. | erikalarkinpga My daughter LOVES the swings at the playground. She is 5 and can really pump herself up pretty high as you can see on this video. As I watched her the other day...

Change of the week: better looking but more importantly better results! Swing thoughts for the student- let your hips turn and foot release in backswing, relax the wrist joint for a natural hinge and wrist set at top, even swing tempo back and through ( he was actually too slow going back)!

All the buzz lately and all eyes are on this guy. Shaking things up! A 22-year-old 'golf scientist' with a pretentious hat and excruciatingly poor technique may have sparked a mini-revolution in the game, Greg Bruce writes.

[06/26/15]   Just got this great email from one of my students and thought I'd share it... A nice testimonial about how on course and situational learning can really help! #loveteachinggolf.....


I was just chuckling about OUR good luck yesterday and wanted to share it with you.

At my lesson on Tuesday we were going over 1) uneven lies and 2) what to do when the ball is tucked against the fringe of the green...

...well yesterday I played in an inter-club match at Greene Hills.

On the 15th hole I had a 170 yard 2nd shot with the ball in the rough way above my feet. My partner says, "That's a tough, tough lie." And of course I say, "No problem, had a lesson on this 2 days ago." -- and drilled my hybrid to within 15 feet of the hole. (Actually, I had 5 or 6 shots from uneven lies...and as best I can remember did okay on all of them.)

And yup, on the very next hole, the 16th, my approach shot came to rest tucked into the fringe of the green, 30 feet from the hole...and unbelievably my partner says, "I hate those lies." Of course he almost flipped out when I said, "Want to know what else we covered in my lesson?" -- and hit it to within inches of the cup to close out/win our match.

We had a great sense of timing on Tuesday!

And BTW - the other issue we discussed that day was my new putter - and you said I would need to make a decision and move forward with either the old or new one. Well, I made the decision about 20 minutes later.

I got to thinking, "I've been really struggling with my putting for months/years and now I'm finally putting "well"...why on earth should I change putters now." (particularly for one that has a much different feel...I'm not sure about...and you didn't see any improvements from either.)

So in a business where you probably aren't always sure how much impact you have I wanted you to know you had a GOOD day Tuesday!
