Sooner or later in a golfer’s career, it’s tournament time!
With Roger Gunn , So.Cal PGA Teacher of the Year

Sooner or later in a golfer’s career, it’s tournament time! This is a chance to really see what you and your golf game are made of. What’s the best way to prepare for this momentous occasion?

Many players make the mistake of spending all their preparation time on the range, attempting to find some sort of bulletproof swing that will surely carry them to victory. Even if this was possible, we’ve all experienced rounds where we hit the ball great and still had a bad score. You mustn’t forget the scoring shots! Make sure, when preparing for a big game or tournament, that you can do these two things: First of all, make sure that you’re able to get the ball close on all shots from 50 yards and in. Don’t forget to put in some time from the sand and the rough. The second is to have great speed control on the greens. There’s nothing that will throw you out of your game faster than three-putting. If you feel confident in these areas, it will take the pressure off your long game, and you’re likely to hit the ball better anyway!

    I tried Over The Top Golf this year, first time having success with my tee shots, longer and almost always straight. They are the only ones I found who teach the proper way to swing over the top (which was what I always did best) so now I am more competitive. Over The Top Golf is in Fort Pierce, FL but they also sell a DVD.
