Great Golf Instruction Tips, Videos and Articles

94 posts in this topic

There is a lot of great instructional information on The Sand Trap.  Erik (iacas) and I have an outlet where we can share our thoughts about the golf swing, instruction, technology, professional tours called Swing Thoughts .  And t o illustrate poor instruction we have the Comics Thread . The purpose of this thread will be to further theoretical discussion and learning from other quality instructors. The only requirement for this thread is that the instructors know the Ball Flight Laws .

For the best videos go here ;-)

If you wish to post a link to an article or a video please be very, very picky about the information .  In other words there won't be any "roll the toe over" to hit a draw type of Fantasy Instruction .  We want to share quality information from instructors that base their information in the understandings of geometry, physics and anatomy.  If you're not sure, then message me.  We also won't delete any videos.


I'll start it off with these great videos from Dana Dahlqusit, Mario Bevilacqua, Martin Chuck and Jeff Evans.

Not exactly light entertainment, but I have learned a great deal from Joe Mayo's "TrackMan Fundamentals" videos.

Thanks for the great share. Learning golf by watching youtube videos is really nice. More people should do that, it helps you to get better results in your game.

Mario your video of a flat left wrist has helped me hit solid shots again along with the others instructors' videos.  I now have the desire to play golf again.  Thanks again everyone

Oh man, that Bobby Eldrige drives me nuts. Classic example of a guy who may be able to play good golf but obviously has NO IDEA how he does it! Giggle fest every time!

Scary thing is, there are far more instructors like him than their are good guys.

I like this one about where to go looking when you're hitting it funky.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
