Minnesota Golf Golf Tips
It's The Balls Fault!!

The golf ball reacts to the position of the club and supporting position of the body at the moment of impact. Simply, a great shot meant that you were in your most efficient impact position, and that is your goal.

The good news is that you all can create great impact AND its quite natural. The bad news is that because the ball is so light (less than 2 ounces), there are literally thousands of ways to move this ball somewhere. There are really too many options available to each golfer… its like trying to find a needle in the haystack.

Imagine using your same club in an attempt to move a 16-pound bowling ball or a heavy bean bag. How many options do you have now? Its the ball's fault! I have videotaped dozens of players striking a bean bag-type training device. At the moment of impact with the bag, it is difficult to distinguish an accomplished player from a beginner. Its true! Unfortunately, view these same two players striking a golf ball and WOW, impact looks very different. Why does this happen? The poorer player at some point became content with a better ball flight and decided to spend the rest of their golfing days trying to maintain that swing; which is fine if this is your goal, but be warned, you will never find your potential… you have stopped short of the MOST efficient swing you could create.

The accomplished player pushed on, and did not settle for mediocrity. They are on a mission to keep improving their swing so that the powerful strike needed to move the heavy object is duplicated against the light golf ball. Its the balls fault, but the difference is up to you!
