I remember when I first started playing the game of golf as a boy, I was so full of enthusiasm for the game and my ambition was to be a better golfer. I wanted to be the longest hitter in the golf club as well. I was always looking for ways to hit my drives further than anyone else, and would read about the various golfing techniques of making it happen.
After playing the game for a few months, my head was so full of ideas and techniques to remember to try while I was on the golf course, that you could say I was suffering from information overload. My head was so crammed full of tips and techniques I had read about, and I just had to try them out on the golf course. I should have practiced them first but I was too impatient for that.
Information overload is something many handicap golfers can get caught up in. If it is not the latest golfing tip it could be trying to remember to do all sorts of things during the golf swing. When you think how quickly the golf swing is over once it has begun, you realize how pointless it is to try and remember where the clubface should be pointing at the top of the backswing if you have not practiced it so many times that you know where it is by now.
Or it might be you are thinking about where the right elbow should be pointing at the top of the backswing. The list is endless. There are so many things going on during the golf swing there just is not time to think about too many details at the same time.
Golf does not have to be hard, nor should it be. It is only a game after all, and it is a sport which is meant to be enjoyed
by all who play.
The day my golf started to improve was the day I got rid of all the mental clutter I was carrying around the golf course in my head. I have long been a fan of the simple golf swing system. My interpretation of this principle is that you swing the club with the emphasis on rhythm and tempo, rather than brute force. By concentrating on golf swing tempo alone, my golf game improved a lot, and I am less stressed than before.
The Simple Golf Swing is a golfing product I came across on the internet and it makes a lot of sense to me. I have not tried it myself, but any golf program which teaches a controlled golf swing, as this one does, must be good a good thing. The reason so many high handicap golfers never improve is because they have never learned to swing the golf club properly. Learn one swing, stick with it, and see you golf game improve. Golf made simple.
