The greatest golf show on Earth kicks off this morning when The European Team will try to keep the Ryder Cup in their possession with a 4th consectutive victory over a well fancied United States Team.
I rarely watch golf on television these days, mainly due to the saturation of events that are consistently on screen at any given hour come Thursday through Sunday on almost any week of the year- bar the Christmas period. I still like to watch the Majors- as that is a tradition I started long ago as a 12 year old- where I would set the alarm for an ungodly hour 4 days for 4 weeks per year to awaken and watch the best players in the world tackle Augusta National, Oak Hill, Baltusrol, Royal St Georges and all the other Championship venues as the players searched for individual glory and the right to be forever declared a Major Champion.
I will still watch The Majors to varying degrees of time but not religously like when I was young and was fully intrigued by these amazing courses so far away on the opposite side of the world. There is one event I do not ever miss however...and that is The Ryder Cup.
Over the past few weeks I have uploaded many lessons- thoughts- pictures to my Instagram account.
Be sure to follow me there to view information I won't be posting in other social media areas.
I will also offer great opportunities such as free online lessons and in depth golf swing guidance in the upcoming weeks and months...

What is the most important aspect of striking the ball straight and with power?
This is the point in the swing where the ball is struck.
Where the clubface is pointing - combined with the path of the clubhead and the angle of descent of the clubhead and the speed of the clubhead at the moment will very much determine the outcome of the shot being played.
There are many differing thoughts about impact and especially how to achieve it. Let me show you what I know and how I believe through my own experiences it releates to 100% of the best players who ever played the game.
The golf ball can ONLY do what it is told to do - so the better we get to impact the greater the chance of a successful result.
Quality of strike is the number one goal initially for a golfer. IF we can strike the ball solidly time and time again then we open up a full playing field of improvements that will eventually work into our game- being but not limited to direction of the shot and distance of the shot and importantly hitting each club the same distance each time we swing it.
