…and what to avoid.

People ask me a lot how they can sift through the morass of conflicting golf advice they hear in the golf media, from tip givers and teaching pros.

I tell them the advice should pass two tests.

A. If you pick several all time great players at random, nearly all of them should do it .

B. The person spouting it should be able to demonstrate and hit a good shot.

Do you really want to be putting something into your swing that less than 5 good golfers in the history of the game have done?

…or something the advice giver can’t do themselves?

If it’s such a good move, why did only a few figure it out? If it’s such good thing, why can’t the advisor do it?

…because you shouldn’t.
