Free golf lessons
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
This is the best lesson I’ve watched! Unless I’ve seen enough video that it started to make sense after watching this… I’ve been hitting more solid shots now and I don’t get tired easily. My arms are more relaxed now and started doing the whip effect. The more I twist my hips faster, the stronger impact on the ball. Thanks James!
Jim, you are driving me nuts moving that ball all over the mat. Nervous habit. I just ran acrooss your video. I am advanced golfer but i thought i would see what is being offered to beginners. I like that you mention that the arms actually dont “try” to swing or control. You may want to emphasize this more because beginners dont get that for many years and pros dont tell or teach that. Decent start i would say.
One more question…when buying new set of clubs..how should I choose, theres so many types of clubs, sets, I could spend the whole day at the golf store…
You just answered your own comment. In order to train your body parts to make a precision move they must learn how to move and when to move. Moving only one part does not accomplish the task.
You are very welcome 🙂 Tell your friends, golf is a wonderful sport. Jim
Hi, Thanks for your question. You can go to golf store and have the store give you a fitting(they may charge), or go to a store and put some clubs in your hands. The head of the club should lie with a somewhat level lie and feel like you are ready to swing it. If you have not bought any clubs yet as I said in the video just get a used one(the sls rep should help you) and try out the swing. Jim ps I will try and post a video on buying a club. Jim
That’s the purpose of the swing drill. By using this technique you will put pressure on your balance causing your brain to counteract and automatically teach you how to swing properly.
Hi Travis, I use the interlock grip. I find it has the best control for my hand size. I use the men’s left xtra-large glove. Glad you liked my video. If you find it helpful tell your friends. Jim
Hi Tom, You can go to Shiftgolf on youtube. I am putting together a series of personal tips that help the golfer understand the game a little better. Hope they have helped you out. Golf is a great game, if you get a chance hope you pass my lessons on to others.
Good movie, thanks from norway!
Thank you very much. Be sure to tell your friends. Jim
Great video ! Thanks for posting. BTW, what setup are you using in your garage to “catch” the balls…?
Hi. Thanks for this video. Can you give lessons or tips on the right way to choose a club with respect to your height? I’m a beginner, 5’5″ tall. Thanks again, sir.
That’s not such a good lesson,I mean you can’t just say to move your weight and expect to hit the ball good,Wouldn’t it be better to just start off using your shoulders and hips ?
This was really really helpfull. I tried that swinging exersice at home for about 15 minutes everyday and within a week, went back to the driving range and noticed an imorovement. Thanks again! PS: i still have problems hitting the ball down, i usually hit it too high or the opposite (hit the ground before i hit the ball). Any tips/videos on that? Cheer!
Hello, Can u describe the comment a little better. You indicated the “golf swings up” ? a video clip would be great if possible. Jim
thanks for this!
Really good guide!
Thanks for the great comment. You ask about hitting the ball too high or hitting the ground first. If you are hitting the ball solidly a high ball flight may be your natural swing. As far as hitting the ground first you may be getting too much hand pressure on the downswing or trying to swing too hard which can alter the swing path. Jim
You say its very easy, but isnt it more a matter of time in order to “get it right”?
wish I still lived down in FL, Jim, would love to get a personal lesson!
hi great video …. also what grip do you have?
you’re really creaming it for such a relaxed approach. Looks beautiful. Thanks!
thanks i am young and i may try what you have told me i am getting golf lessions on saterday!!
Great video, Im fairly new to actually playing the game, this was some very good sound advice compared to some Ive seen. I plan to try that right away !
great video Mr welford : )
What is the ball bouncing back off of? Can you show that set up on camera?
now to get get starting… hitting BALLS 😀
i think thats a great lesson for a starter,cheers jon
I can tell you without a doubt this this lesson is helpful for beginners.. After struggling to get started for months, I went to the driving range today and my improvement was immediate. Thanks!!
Thank you jim I’m an absolute beginner and this is a massive help . . God bless
Putting.golf swings up come.check.them.out.and.help out.if.you can thank
Thanks for the feedback 🙂 I hope it makes the game more fun and opens the doors to many years of great memories.
Really great drill! I just started to learn and remembering to do everything during a swing is hard. So working on my weight distribution and properly using my left arm has helped a lot and now im even more excited to go back to the driving range and practice! Thanks a lot!! You’re a great teacher!
Hi, I’m a total beginner and have just been out practising your lesson and it’s great. As long as I try not to hit too hard, I can get accuracy and feel like I’m in control rather than at the mercy of swinging all over the place cause I was lifting it back with right hand. Do have other tips for chipping and putting?
