Tiger Woods Drives on LA Airport (Golf Clubs)

Tiger Woods was on an airport runway in Los Angeles (Hawthorne Municipal Airport) on Tuesday hitting his new Niki Driver over 500 yards down the tarmac (the asphalt helped his drives).

The drivers – the SasQuatch Sumo Squared and the SasQuatch Sumo – feature a unique shape (square) and will be hitting the market in early 2007.

Tigers take on the driver:
“I’ve tested it, but I haven’t quite found the launching conditions that work for me yet,” Woods said. “The runway really helped my distance.”

Woods 2006 year includes wins in both the British Open and the PGA Championship.

Actually this is what you do when someone has your pickup truck and you need to transport a deer. Yes, that’s a Lexus we are putting that deer in! Sweet smelling too!

Golf Club Grip and Swing Advice

Practice is the key to improving your golf shots. Here’s look at some areas of your swing and grip.

Grip and Thumb Location
Maintaining a correct grip on the club during the back swing is vital. It’s not just the initial grip on the club that’s important; keeping your thumb pointing towards the sky at the half way mark of the swing both on the back swing and the front swing is essential. As the club comes back at the midway point of the swing, the thumb, which initially points towards the ground, should be pointing towards the sky before you come down and follow through with the swing.

Get the Rhythm Right
Do not rush when playing your shot. Improving your golf swing is all about timing and movement of the swing. Anyone can hit the ball with power by swinging hard and fast. Getting the rhythm right takes practice. An effective method to maintain good rhythm is to pause slightly at the end of the upswing motion before completing the downswing motion. Many golfers will actually do a short count in their minds for no more than a second. This method has the effect of improving rhythm and reduces the urge to swing to quickly.

Keep in Balance
Have you ever felt off balance when going through with the swing motion? For right hand golfers, the left knee leans towards the right, the shoulders seem to be out of alignment and the hip sways in an unnatural fashion. What do you do to correct it? One method is to place a large ball in between the knees during my back swing practice. It looks odd but it works, try it!

Today’s Golf Clubs are Wonderfully Engineered

The engineering that goes into producing a club, whether an iron, fairway wood or a driver, is awsome. Let the club do what it was designed for is most important. All you need to do is provide the club with the correct swing plane and the wonderfully engineered golf club will do the rest.

In Summary
Improving your golf swing is about practicing the correct technique. Pratice until you develop ‘muscle memory’ so it becomes simple instinct every time you step out to the tee. Now, go hit a bucket of balls.
