Paul Lawrie's Three Simple Golf Tips (Video)

Does your game need a quick overhaul? Try Paul Lawrie's Top3 simple golf tips for the weekend player.

These are so clear that they really don't need any explanation. So here they are:
  • Make a slow takeaway, a slow change of direction, and then swing fast at the ball. That will help your rhythm, balance and everything else.
  • When you chip, set up with your sternum (the bone in the middle of your chest) over the ball. That's a good position to get solid contact on the ball.
  • Take more club on your approach shots -- not because you're allowing for a mis-hit, but because most players overestimate how far they hit the ball.
Those three tips really do cover a large part of the game. And they don't require a lot of practice; you can incorporate them into your game very quickly. If you're having trouble, they're worth a try.


  1. A new silly season event was held this weekend in Thailand, the inaugural Amata Friendship Cup. It is team match play between Japan and Thailand, with each team comprised of 6 male and 6 female players, each containing one top amateur.
    As hosts, Thailand sent its "A" team, including the Jutanugarn sisters, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Thongchai Jaidee, Pornanong Phatlum and the 8th ranked player in the women's amateur ranks Atthaya Thitikul. Japan's team was led by Hideto Tanihara, Satoshi Kodaira and Nasa Hataoka.
    Despite a late Japanese charge in the Sunday singles the hosts held on for a 15-13 win, with Aphibarnrat clinching the winning point 1 Up over Kodaira.
