Playing Golf In The Shadows

Depending on the time of day you play golf, shadows can cause a challenge. I like to play in the morning, but have played in the evening enough times to know that shadows do make our club choices and line selection difficult. The greatest challenge, at least for my game, is while putting on the green. Even putting through the shadow of the pin and flag is a challenge for my game. Shadows can be my kryptonite on the greens. How about you?

Follow Through On All Your Golf Shots!

One of the most underrated aspect of our golf swing is the follow through. I have watched so many different versions of this critical move that I am confident that the follow through is an after thought for most amateurs.

Too Many Changes To Make One Shot

I was watching a video by Michael Breed who was a popular teacher on the Golf Channel. The video was about how to create solid contact and consistency. As I watched the video, I realized that I already make most of the adjustments Breed suggests, except moving my weight forward a smidge before starting my swing. I followed his video very easily, then it dawned on me that this video was not for the beginner and possibly for an intermediate player. The reason I think that this is an advanced video is because he has me changing no less than six things when hitting out of the rough. Here, take a look:
