Hi All   Could I start a thread where we post our best ever golf tips? Not videos or long technical treatises from the real students of the game, just small bite size pearls of wisdom which have done us some good. They can be technique tips, scoring tips, swing thoughts, even just pithy remarks with a kernel of golf truth. I am making a collection of golf tips and would love to hear yours.   One of my best:    "Placing the ball in the right position for the next shot...

Quality of club/ball contact is far more important than club head speed.   (2) Pay attention to remaining totally in balance throughout your swing, slowing down will help that instantly.   (3) Never "hit" the ball....
Mcdonaldtj, I play golf like you do, that is with a strong grip. There is nothing wrong with a strong grip, in many ways it is a good thing. Players with a more neutral/weak grip have to roll their wrists through impact to square the club face. This is difficult to time accurately and the cause of many wayward shots. With a strong grip the club face remains correctly aligned to the swing path throughout the swing and needs no manipulation at impact. Strong grippers also...
