Stay in Your Shot

If you top shots, most likely you are standing up as you strike the ball. Ideally, you want to keep the same angle your torso and legs formed at address position the same throughout your swing. Many high-handicappers stand up (straighten their legs or lift their torsos) as the they strike the ball resulting in an array of bad shots including thin and topped shots, pulls and slices. If you take a look at professionals, you will see that they keep their spine angle through out their swing and even many squat down as they strike the ball.

Cardiogolf 1000 Practice Swing Challenge

Break it Down-make 30 practice swings a day for 30 days and you will have made 900 swings over the course of a month.  Okay, so it is not exactly a 1000 swings, but close enough (if you really want to get technical, you’ll have to take 33.3333 swing per day to reach 1000 practice swings).  The amount is not the point, the point is to be consistent with your practice; take a few minutes out of your day to work on your golf swing and get some exercise.

If you don’t have enough room to swing a regular club,  use the ‘Shortee Practice Training Club’ by GolfGym.  Click here for more information. 

 

Day 29

Just do it.  Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do things you don’t feel like doing.  It is easy to skip exercise because you are tired or you have other things to do, but don’t do it.  If you can’t do it every day, don’t punish yourself and give up. Just do it the next day. If you do 30 practice swings a day for 30 days, you’ll have done almost 1000 swings and be on your way to grooving a consistent swing.

Click here how I  practice indoors with my Cardiogolf Shortee Practice Training Club.

Take the challenge with me, post a note  on my Facebook page letting me know that you are up for the challenge.

If you have limited side bend, then you will also be limited in your spinal rotation because one motion cannot happen without the other motion. Any limitations in this area will cause you to slide or sway in your golf swing. Improving your range of motion  so you can side bend will help you make a better backswing and improve your swing plane to be more consistent.

Side Bend
  1. Stand in a shoulder width stance. Keeping your back, head and shoulder in the same line with your arms hanging by your sides.
  2. Bend to the side and reach your fingertips to the floor as you side flexion.
  3. Go as far as you can without losing your balance.
  4. Hold position for 8 to 10 counts and return to start position.
  5. Repeat on opposite side.
  6. Do 8 to 10 repetitions on both sides.

Would you change the way you eat if you knew certain foods could help you play better golf?

Managing your food intake, hydration levels and adding certain nutrients to your diet can not only help you concentrate and focus more on the golf course, but it can also help you keep your heartbeat steady as you make an important shot or putt, help your muscles fire faster for more power, help you fight fatigue so you can play and practice longer and even help you keep your cool after a bad shot. More importantly good nutrition is good for your overall health and well-being.

We all know the importance that fitness, swing mechanics and equipment can have on our golf games, but are you eating the right foods to sustain enough energy throughout your round to play your best golf? The best equipment in the world won’t make a difference if you don’t have energy to get you around the course. We do not hear as much about nutrition for golf, but rest assured that the most elite golfers of the world follow some sort of diet to provide them with the energy-output they need to play their best. While is it not yet the norm for golfers to follow a specialized nutrition program, it will soon become so.

Cardiogolf 1000 Practice Swing Challenge

For many of us, we used to be able to hop out of the car, go straight to the first tee and rip a drive down the middle of the fairway. Now by skipping a warm-up before a round of golf may mean it takes us 4 or 5 holes before you loosen up and gain your form and by that time your score may already be ruined. Here is a quick and easy pre-round warm-up exercise to help you avoid those big numbers on the scorecard.

The point of a warm up is to elevate your heart rate to get your blood flowing to warm muscles so they are loose and supple to make it is easier to swing. You can do this warm-up at your house before your round of golf, if you don’t have a long drive to the golf course or on the driving range. Don’t be embarrassed to do the routine, it couldn’t more humiliating than topping your drive off the first tee.

Here is a quick exercise that I  do to help warm up the back and shoulders.

If you work at a desk job, most likely your shoulders will be tight from the hours of sitting at a desk over a computer. When your shoulders are tight, then you cannot make a full shoulder turn and this may lead to swing faults. Bicycle arms is an excellent exercise that will not only loosen muscles but will help you develop strength and endurance.

Bicycle Arms
  • Stand in a shoulder width stance holding a golf club parallel to the ground.
  • Rotate the club forward as if you were peddling a bicycle with your hands and arms, taking your shoulders through full range of motion.
  • Rotate forward for 8 to 10 repetitions and then rotate back for 8 to 10 repetitions.

Spring Up Your Game-Cardiogolf 1K Practice Swing Challenge Day 7

A note from Karen:

The challenge is straightforward-simply make 1000 practice swings during the month (30 swings a day)  to improve your swing technique and increase clubhead speed.  You don’t need to go to the driving range or golf course, you can simply make practice swings in your garage or living room at home a few minutes a day.

If you don’t have enough room to swing a regular club,  use the ‘Shortee Practice Training Club’ by GolfGym.  Click here for more information. 

Day 7

Ideally, you want to keep the same angle your torso and legs formed at address position the same throughout your swing.  Many high-handicappers stand up (straighten their legs or lift their torsos) as the they strike the ball resulting in an array of bad shots including thin and topped shots, pulls and slices. If you take a look at professionals, you will see that they keep their spine angle through out their swing and even many squat down as they strike the ball.

Stay in your shot to stay in the game.

Day 3

How to Hit Long Irons off of a Tight Lie

In order to make the best golf swings with irons off of a tight lie, you must believe you can hit them well, but sheer anxiety high handicappers experience when standing over a tight lie prevents them from hitting a solid shot. Either they don’t complete the backswing or they tense up and try to help the ball up in the air.

So think about swinging the club instead of hitting the ball. When you take a practice swing, pick out a piece of dirt or blade of grass and try to clip it as you swing all the way through to the finish and make a conscious effort to hit your shoulder with the shaft.

If you raise your body up and down, you’ll mis-hit shots. So as you take your practice swings today, think of maintaining your spine angle throughout the swing.
