Perfect Swing !?

Tee Times T.O. -Perfect Swing

-Do I really need A “perfect swing”  to play better golf?

We all know that perfection is largely unattainable in countless aspects of our lives , and of course in the game of golf is a utopia. Even so, many golfers are frustrated to spend hours on the practice field , observing and studying the art of great golfers, reading books and magazines … to try to improve your swing , lower your handicap and play better golf .

– Is it attainable by all players that “perfect swing” ?

Well, the answer to both questions is a resounding NO. The explanation is simple : we must be aware of to understand that we will NEVER be able to “move” an iron like Tiger , Phil or Ernie. Simply because these players have innate talents and skills that we do not possess , in addition to increase them with thousands of hours of practice from an early age,  which will no longer be able to go back . Let us add a few of hundreds of tips and golf lessons that have been given to them and … impossible to equate them.

Let’s be optimistic and remember the following sentence : “The key to playing better golf is not a perfect swing, but a consistent and repeatable swing .” This is part of a philosophy of life,  you can carry it out with the day to day and is known as ”  KISS Principle ” (  ” Keep it short and simple “, which is an acronym that recommended using simple and understandable instructions, rejecting what convoluted and unnecessary ) . What is simple in a golf swing ? you wonder , as keeping the spine as an axis of rotation of the swing , getting a correct plane . And place the grip and alignment of the club face to the target.

So if you really want to improve your game, and develop consistency and confidence every time you play a golf swing takes the simplest way you can hit the ball and … expecting nothing more than enjoy the game.

The term ” birdie ” means scoring one under par (- 1) , was coined in 1899 in Atlantic City Country Club in Northfield , New Jersey. History tells us that in a game of the year 1899 three golfers : George Crump (who later built Pine Valley) , William Poultney Smith (founder member of Pine Valley ) and his brother Ab Smith, were playing together when Crump made ​​his second that hit a bird in flight and the ball went to stop a few inches from the hole. This fact made ​​the starting companions began to exclaim that the result of three shots on a par four were due to ” birdie ” . Soon, all members of the club began using the term and the term quickly spread and was used by all U.S. golfers.

The said term ” birdie ” was standardized for the result of one under par (-1), we continued with the ratio of a better result is called with a larger bird, ie -2 is “eagle” ( eagle) , -3 is ” albatross ” ( albatross ) -4 and a ‘ condor ” ( condor ) .
