GUIDES FOR EVERYONE

This is the number one places to eliminate the scheiesse, the silly dropped shots, the poefies. We aren’t trying to gain shots against some imaginary group of players just like us, we aren’t trying to make birds or eagles, we are trying to break 90 and have fun while we do it. We want to lower

OMG WTF. Guys, we don’t know what we’re talking about when it comes to the golf swing. I see so many players who are obsessed with some tiny move in their right forearm, or whether their right foot comes off the ground through impact. Stop watching YouTube swing videos and go and see a pro.

I may have triggered some people who are on the low IQ level of the intelligence spectrum by saying this. Let’s be clear, I don’t mean don’t count your score for a hole. Seriously guys, we are still playing golf here. What I’m talking about is keeping track of your score relative to par during

People think they know their game. So many people I play with haven’t got a clue about the nitty gritty of their game. I have written an in-depth article about this very concept which you can find here, but let’s look at some specifics when it comes to breaking 90. Example When we’re trying to

I don’t care who you are. I don’t care what you’re trying to push, what book you have written, or which course you’re trying to get commission on. Inside 120 is essential if you are trying to break ANY scoring barrier. It’s the scoring zone where you will slash the most strokes from your game. You

Nonsense is probably not strong enough of a word to use in this situation, but I’m trying to keep this as PG13 as possible to maximise my clicks. If you are trying to break 90 and you’re worried about the 4 degree gap between your pitching wedge and gap wedge blah blah blah, then you

If you have read my website or watched any of my videos, you will likely know that I think that golf on TV is a major factor preventing players from improving. The highlight reels show the best of the best, hitting the best shots of anyone playing golf in the WORLD at that moment, and we

The punch is a shot which scares many players. They hear “punch” and their mind is filled with visions of Eldrick Woods hitting stingers and the voice of some YouTube “pro” giving them INSANE swing tips. A punch shot isn’t really about technique, it’s about accepting your fate and having the skills to get the ball

I am amazed by how many players do not know or even pay attention to the trajectory of the golf ball. When you are out on the course or the range, you can learn how your ball will fly off particular clubs and in particular situations. The more you play, the more consistent the trajectory will

This is the first point of the break 100 guide and it’s the same concept here. Par is a social construct. When you get to the course, collect your card and add a stroke to each hole. Par 3’s become par 4’s, par 4’s become par 5’s and so on.This small thing will free your

It sounds rude and incendiary. The truth can sting sometimes. But I love you and want you to be better and have more fun.  Self diagnosing your golf swing mechanics is killing your game. Even worse is if you’re commenting on your buddy’s swing and giving him tips. The harshest truth in this whole guide is that

When I first started to get the idea around the Way of the Playa out there, there was inevitably the group of DOGS sufferers who called it ‘too conservative’, even being so rude as to call it “pat pat” golf! The horror!I have no idea what that means, but it can’t be complimentary.They saw me hitting

People sometimes say that you play your best golf when you’re not thinking. This is only partially correct because there is a huge difference between thinking and worrying.Worrying is Not ThinkingWorrying is when you’re looking at all the negative things that could go wrong, and this actually begins the process of making them a reality!Old Murphy

If you don’t know yourself, how will you improve or get better at anything? It’s almost like identifying the problem clearly so you can make a clear solution. Now, i’m not calling you a problem, but I am saying, you need to know yourself.YOU.YOU are the most important part of this machine. Without YOU, there is
