425: Author Mike Pile returns for part 2 on his book “Keep Your Swing Lower Your Score”. In this Members Only episode, we get into more depth on his theories and tips on how to take advantage of your natural abilities to be a better golfer. We discuss practice, visualization, course management, putting and more in this 30 minute conversation.
424: Mike Pile’s bio says that he’s been playing golf for over 35 years and enjoying it for maybe about 12 minutes. Like every mid-handicapper he's tried everything to get better; lessons, practice, advice, new equipment, tips, etc. but they never generated sustainable low scores because it is nearly impossible to play enough to put them into practice. Until now that is.
In part 1 of 2 we meet Mike and discus his great little book, “Keep Your Swing. Lower Your Score.” which offers simple, practical advice about the management and perspective of your game that will improve your golf game without having to practice, quit your job, ignore your family or get divorced. If you have a mid-handicap index and are someone who loves golf and really wants to improve, this book may very well help you achieve sustainable lower scores hole by hole, round to round. Mike’s book delivers practical advice that you can implement today, tomorrow and forever. There is nothing offered that cannot be sustained by the average handicapper who is lucky to play once a week. Keep Your Swing Lower Your Score will improve your game without requiring you to change your swing, take lessons or commit hours of time which most of us simply do not have.
The book is available in our Golfers’Mart at GolfSmarter.com.
423: Martin Chuck, creator of TourStriker returns for part 2 of our conversation. In this episode, host Fred Greene grills Martin to provide us with the Top 5 most common swing flaws that he sees in his amateur students. Each of these flaws on their own will greatly reduce your success in getting the ball off the ground, going far and at your target. Some people suffer from just one, but many golfers combine all of these errors and wonder what's wrong with their clubs.
Martin has published a significant library of incredibly helpful videos on YouTube. The specific video he shares with us is a great drill to practice in the off season. In an effort to keep our heads down, so many golfers don't follow through. This video is a specific drill on how to follow through without lifting your head.
The video is posted in our blog at GolfSmarter.com.
