Instruction and Course News

I’m Rex Flory one of TeeClub’s Perfect Swing Instructors. I have over 25 years experience teaching and helping golfers of all levels to play a better game. I’m a top notch instructor and so confident with my knowledge and skills as a communicator that all my lessons come with this guarantee, “After your first lesson if you are not satisfied I will give you your money back.” I have never had a student exercise this option. I use video and computer software when helpful and can make you a DVD of your swing for home study. Call me direct on my cell for an appointment at 818-749-5904 and if you mention that you found me through TeeClub I will give you $25.00 off your first lesson.

~~ Golf Tip ~~

Establishing Rythm a Good Way to Practice
By Joe Buttitta

Why is it that practice swings feel free and easy, but ball swings get herky-jerky? The problem is the ball. It just sits there staring at you, causing tension.

How often we’ve all muttered to ourselves, “If I could just hit it with my practice swing, I’d be fine.”

Here’s a drill that will help. Sneak up on the ball and don’t let it know you’re coming.

Line up three balls about 6 inches apart. Grab a 7-iron and begin swinging next to the first ball to establish a rhythmic swing motion. Nice and easy. No hurry. No effort.

When you feel your swing has a bit of rhythm, begin creeping up on the first ball and let it get in the way of your swing.

This is a continuous swing drill, so while making your next backswing step forward — left foot first.

Then let the second ball get in the way of your forward swing. Same thing for ball No. 3. Just keep sneaking up on each ball until the swing makes contact.

The point of this drill is to keep the same rhythm all the way through, never trying to hit it hard or far ... just solid.

You’ll be amazed at how far you do hit it when you make solid contact.

After several rounds with three balls, try it with just a single ball.

Begin your practice swings near the ball always trying to create a rhythmic motion. When you feel the rhythm, sneak up on the ball and let it get in the way of the clubhead.

Yes, this is more mental than physical. But you’ll quickly get the point of swinging a club rather than hitting a ball.

Golfer: "Think I'm going to drown myself in the lake."
Caddy: "Think you can keep your head down that long?"

Golfer: "I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course."
Caddy: "Try heaven, you've already moved most of the earth."

Golfer: "Do you think my game is improving?"
Caddy: "Yes sir, you miss the ball much closer now."

Golfer: "Do you think I can get there with a 5 iron?"
Caddy: "Eventually."

Golfer: "You've got to be the worst caddy in the world."
Caddy: "I don't think so sir. That would be too much of a coincidence."

Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch all the time. It's too much of a distraction."
Caddy: "It's not a watch - it's a compass."

Golfer: "How do you like my game?"
Caddy: "Very good sir, but personally, I prefer golf."

Golfer: "Do you think it's a sin to play on Sunday?
Caddy: "The way you play, sir, it's a sin on any day."

Golfer: "This is the worst course I've ever played on."
Caddy: "This isn't the golf course. We left that an hour ago."


Golfer: "That can't be my ball, it's too old."
Caddy: "It's been a long time since we teed off, sir

Golf can best be defined as an endless series of tragedies obscured by the occasional miracle, followed by a good bottle of beer.

Golf! You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. The lowest score wins.
And on top of that, the winner buys the drinks.
