“Golf is a simple game made complicated by those who play it!”
Welcome to the HowDidiDo Academy. Our aim is to help you improve your game with instruction specifically targeted at the Club golfer.
We understand that building a Tour Player swing is neither realistic nor desirable for most golfers and that with modern technology, coaching methods can seem complicated and difficult to many players.
Improvement can be defined in different ways, not just a lower handicap. Learning to hit more solid shots, finding an extra 10 yards, fixing a destructive hook or slice, or learning a new shot around the greens could be realistic goals which enhance your game.
With simple concepts and ideas we will show you that learning something new is both rewarding and fun. There is no age or handicap limit to improving some part of your game; anyone can learn to play better golf.
A Full, Balanced Through Swing to Maximise Your Power
The follow through, or through swing as I tend to call it, is perhaps one of the most overlooked elements of the Golf Swing and yet is still one of the most important.
If you don’t believe me think of how many world class players have a poor, off balance through swing. I can’t think of any either!
In part 4 of our series on improving your Driver me move on to the fun stuff! What causes us to hit long accurate Tee shots? The simple answer to this, in terms of hitting the ball further off the Tee, is that the 2 most critical factors are STRIKE and SPEED. No 2 factors at impact cause more damage to the ball flight of Club golfers than a poor strike or a lack of speed with the Driver.
Deliver Power and Accuracy From the Tee With a Better Transition
Part 3 of our series on Improving your Tee Shots with the Driver deals with a critical element of the swing if you want to hit the ball further and more accurately. The change of direction in the swing from Backswing into the Downswing is known as the Transition of the swing (referred to here as Transition) and it is hugely important and often overlooked by Club golfers.
Let’s be honest, I don’t think there is a Golfer out there who wouldn’t like to hit the Driver a little further and more accurately. Being a good Driver of the ball doesn’t necessarily mean you hit every fairway. In my view a good Driver of the ball is able to combine Length (power) with avoidance of wild, penalty inducing shots. If you can hit the Tee Shot long enough and close enough to the fairway then you can have a major effect on your scoring.
