Tip 3 – The Good Vs Bad Habits Playing Golf
Playing golf is addictive in nature. It becomes an obsession to extent like me, you’ve based your job around it. The easier the path to playing another round the easier it is to satisfy my addiction to the sport.
Now, just because I am a certified Gold addict doesn’t mean I need to sign my self up into therapy, or join addict meets. This habit of mine is considered normal, or a passion if you will. Basically there is nothing wrong with it. I do on the other hand have habits that are not something to should loud about. The worst (up until recently) was my need to smoke. Obviously with more and more clubs banning smoking on the course, this made my life a misery. As a 20 a day smoker, and playing golf for a lot of that day, finding time to smoke was not easy. This is especially true if my round was particularly bad.
I decided since the 2016 was round the corner, it was a good time to quit and sure enough on 1st Jan 2016, i finished what I though was my last cigarette and endured a 3 day agony as the nicotine addiction slowly went away. 1 week later I was back on smokes admitting defeat.
Disgusted with myself, I decided to look into alternative forms of smoking, i.e. nicotine patches, sprays and even gum, however none of these would cure the main reason I went back to smoking. I needed something that mimicked smoking.
Having been fully aware of electronic cigarettes for quite some time, I decided to learn more about them. I found an article explaining what the best electronic cigarette 2016 was all about and decided to give it shot. Its been almost a month now, and I haven’t looked back. I must admit I feel fantastic. My chest feels better, my weave is going, and most importantly it has even improved my golf game.
The best though is yet to come. Electronic Cigs are not banned on the courses, and can be freely used anywhere on the course. I am so pleased with this technology. Not only have a stopped smoking, but can now vape to my hearts content! May 2016 bring you wealth and fortune and of course a lower handicap.
Tip 2 – My Personal Driver – The Best I’ve Used Yet
Pings G series has constantly remained amongst the most sought after and sold driver and irons since the G2 was launched in the year 2004. Apart from winning majors, Gs has previously been in the hands of the world’s leading player and also brought about game improving technology to millions of golfers across the world. interesting thing about it all is the fact that: after seven G families Ping has resorted to reverting to just G for the year 2016 and as expected, it seems to be one of the best looking gear that the company has produced in recent years.
Ping G Driver?

Taking into consideration the fact that the rules on golf equipment are so tight, most people scoff at the claims which have been made by manufacturers regarding the benefits of the newly introduced technology. Ping however insists that they have broken every conceivable contributor to a drivers distance and the forgiveness potential (just so you know the list runs to 56 points) all in a bid to squeeze the slightest form of improvement from each so as to end with significant gains in the end. Question is, what’s with the new G?
As strange as it may sound, designers are most of the time inspired by nature. Ping CEO and current chair man john Solheim did just that when he made reference to the picture of a dragon fly. His image however was more detailed showing intricate wing structure of the insect. This prompted inquiry as to whether the vein pattern could strengthen a driver crown. It has since taken at least three years to develop the idea’s shaved 8g of weight from the crown which incredibly means areas of the crown are presently just the thickness of 3 pieces of paper.
It is important to understand the fact that ping are an engineering company, what’s more, presently companies elite are convinced that due to the rules of aerodynamics on offer they are the most significant area for improved performance. Mostly inspired by the trailer tails on the back of cars and trucks VorTec technology helps reduce turbulent flow of air at the back of the head. Keep in mind, improving stability while at the same time cutting drag by up to 11% and as their boffins commonly say getting speed for absolutely free.
Pings previous G30 driver goes down on record as the first to boast of turbulator technology. Ping rethought the New G, this is clearly evident from the fact that they improved their performance by significantly increasing and refining their positioning just to mention the least.
New counter balanced shaft
Counter balancing is at the moment widespread in putters at the moment, even with this, Ping are focused on bringing the concept to life in the form of a brand new Alta 55 high balance point shaft to form a part of its G family. So what can it do? First off, it is important to take note that the head is slightly heavier. This therefore means that you will swing at more or less the same speed only that the impact will be more mass hitting the ball prompting it to move further.
There’s also G SF-Tec and G LS-Tec
The G is not simply limited to a single head either. This is because there are an LS Tec head linked to it which serves to lower the spin by as much as 400rpm and the SF head which is characteristic of 12 yard of shot bend correction which helps straighten out any slice.
Tip 1 – How to Take a Slow Motion Golf Swing
Have you heard the name Tiger Woods? Of course, you did. Besides being the highest paid athletes in world for several years, he is the most successful golfer of all time. Now every amateur golfer must have dreamt of perfecting that signature “Tiger Woods Golf Swing” at least once. However, in order to achieve the perfect golf swing along with having fun playing the game, you must develop proper golf swing techniques. Although, having all of the proper techniques might not make you another Tiger Woods, but it will surely help you to be consistent with your own swings. After years of hard work and practice, Woods have achieved his own exceptional swings that suits his physique and playing style. Apart from that, each of us has our own aspects and many of us are definitely not athletically gifted like Tiger Woods. Now let’s concentrate on the various attributes of your golf swing techniques.
The most basic and common part is to hold your golf club appropriately. You should first lay the club handle on your palms and grip it with your thumbs facing down. Always remember that the both hands should touch each other. Now if you want to hit the ball for a maximum distance, choke up on the club and choke down for a minimum distance.
The immediate next step to concentrate on is our golf stance. Just like any other sport, a balanced stance is a necessity for golf as well. While lining up for hitting the ball your feet should be kept in shoulder width apart and the rest of the body, to some extent, upright. Now there is a trick to check if stance is correct or not. Try to move your toes up and down while standing with your golf club. If your are leaning far to the forwards then you won’t be able to move your feet. Likewise, if you lean too far backwards, you must be able to move your both feet up and down. Therefore, you need to balance between these two positions for an optimal stance. You should have noticed in televisions, many pro golfers doing that before they drive off.
The next step is to watch your feet’s position. Put your golf club down so that it touches the front of your feet. Now determine the direction you want to hit the ball, straight, left or right, and point the club accordingly.
The final aspects are the hardest part. This is the part when you coordinate your whole body to the swing. Many people have seen to do everything perfectly and but once they make contact with the ball they stop following the swing all the way through. This is the most common mistake done even by experienced golfers. They just fail to coordinate their body. Once your stance and positioning are correct, you must be ready to hit the ball. A faster swing needs superior power and distance, but you need to be steady. Keeping your hands straight, pull back on your golf club, turn your hips and legs a bit, follow back through your downward swing turning your hips and legs back towards the ball and follow the swing all the way through. The whole thing should be done in one regular wave and you should not stop your swing even after hitting the ball.
This whole golf swing technique seems a bit tough while you visualize. But, it is easier to follow the steps with a slow motion golf swing video. These days, journalists are using latest technology cameras to capture the sports events. The latest camcorder’s built on “Smooth Slow Capture” feature allows them to capture one golf shot of a few seconds, to capture as a sequence of up to 22 still images that are capable of viewing/printing individually. This sequence shot technology is perfect to analyze any golf-shot. They capture every minute detailing of the shot. Therefore, acts as training aid for many amateur golfers. Sony FDR AX100 Handycam is one of those latest cameras that are capable of taking slow motion pictures of golf swing. These footages are eligible for post shot editing. The technicians just need to get the best monitor with a perfect resolution and refresh rate. While finding the best 27-inch monitor, the search might end at ASUS ROG Swift 27 inch model. It has 144 Hz refresh rate, which is considered the best for editing any video footage. These slow motion golf swing videos are easily available over the internet. Try to observe every single detailing and adapt it to your own style.
