Let's Talk Golf Simulators PLUS Tiger Woods' Coach Wants To Help You Break 90 (Or More)

Now, I'm not sure what's more of the rage right now...building your own course in your house or getting better at golf 🤔

In Today’s Issue:

🏌️‍♂️ Is the Work Golf From Home Wave Real?

🏌️‍♂️ Something to Send Those Who “Don’t Get It”

🏌️‍♂️ Your Choice of Tips: What the Top Golf Coaches Recommend Players Do To Break 90’s or under! (No Matter The Course)

🏌️‍♂️ Is the Work Golf From Home Wave Real?

If you’ve ever been on the course and thought…

“You know this sport just isn’t expensive enough”

I’ve got the next thing you need in your life.

Golf addicts, I introduce to you the Golf Simulator

Now I don’t want you to get me wrong, I am not shaming those who have these.

In reality, I am incredibly jealous.

These golf simulators are the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

A few weeks ago I went to a Parade of Homes in Park City, UT and got to try one out actually.

I can honestly say that I have never felt more poor in my life than walking into a house with a dedicated room for a golf simulator 😂

It also lit a serious fire inside me to make enough to where throwing in a golf simulator in my dream home is almost an afterthought.

Nothing sounds more fun than coming home after a day at the office and walking downstairs to hit a few balls at any course around the world.

After looking at the various types of simulators out there I actually learned how many different levels there are out there.

Maybe I’ll compile a list of all them for a future email one day 👀

But there’s also some really interesting businesses out there that build them in warehouses and let you use them!

I’m not affiliated with the owners of this one in any way, but a company in Chicago called PARennial Golf has one of them and is even open 24/7!

It’s something I hope opens up near my hometown as well 👀

Not to mention how convenient it’d be for those who don’t want to go all in on simulators just yet and get to try them out before any big purchases.

I’ll be reaching out to a few simulator companies this next little bit to see if I can’t get some good deals for you all.

(And definitely snagging them for myself as well 😉)

But let me know down below how you feel about simulators and if you have one yourself send us your setup 🙌

🏌️‍♂️ Something to Send Those Who “Don’t Get It”

🏌️‍♂️ Your Choice of Tips: What the Top Golf Coaches Recommend Players Do To Break 90’s or under! (No Matter The Course)

That’s right, the winner of Tuesday’s Poll was how to break 90 or under on any course!!

(But don’t worry, if you wanted to learn the 3 tips PGA players recommend to improve their putting game I’ll be adding in that one later.)

So let’s get you to drop beneath that elusive 90.

#1 Square Your Club Face on Your Drive

Now this obviously is an overly simplified piece of advice.

But it’s the secret to how Hank Haney was able to help Tiger Woods become as prolific of a golfer.

You see, nearly everyone shanks or hooks on their drive.

It’s such a bad problem that once you fix it you can easily drop 8-10 strokes throughout each round you play

(Or more if you have as bad of a slice as some certain friends of mine 😂)

Because of this everyone has “tips and tricks” to fix that…

HOWEVER that doesn’t mean they all last.

In fact, that’s the exact problem Coach Haney found after helping over 70,000 clients with this problem.

All the tips and tricks never seemed to last.

He says this is because people forget the biggest problem with the human brain…

It overcompensates to protect us.

The brain has just recently encountered “recreational activities” as before it was trying to make sure we didn’t hurt ourselves or worse.

With all of these tips then we overcompensate all of them and hit way left after just hitting way right until we forget all of them and go back to what feels “natural”

So here’s how he says to fix this 👇

1️⃣ First, take a practice swing off the ground.

You’re going to almost take a practice swing like you’re hitting with a baseball bat.

This will help reset any bad previous swings and get your body comfortable with keeping that club face square

2️⃣ Next, take a normal practice swing but finish it about where your back leg is

Doing this will allow you to see where your club face is.

At this point it needs to be square.

If it’s not then you know you’re moving too much on that backswing.

3️⃣ Put it all together and see how much closer that ball is to where you’re aiming

(You can CLICK HERE to watch a 2-minute video where Coach Haney walks you through it)

Now, I know what you’re thinking…

“No 💩 Sherlock”

It may be incredibly simple but it’s an exercise that Coach Haney swears by and is exactly what he teaches his clients and they all rave about him.

I do have one more tip that might be helpful though regardless.

(Consider it making up for not having one yesterday.)

#2 Utilize Your Half Swing

I want you to honestly think to yourself here…

Do you hit the ball too SHORT most of the time or too INACCURATE?

This kind of goes hand-in-hand with the last tip of perfecting your swing.

BUT I really want to focus on another benefit of hitting with half swings from time to time…

It helps make sure you’re not COMPENSATING for your form with your strength.

See, I have a friend that I go golfing with that outdrives me like no one’s business.

He also hits it way off course with each shot though.

Yet because he’s so strong he always comes back and ends up making up for it in the end.

Imagine how much better he’d be if he reduced his strength and focused on his form

(Something I tell him every time but am a little grateful he never listens so I still stand a chance)

On top of helping you see what exactly you need to be fixing though it also helps you see just how far you can hit the ball.

That same friend I was talking about can have an impressive drive but fail to land on the green when it’s 70 yards out because he doesn’t truly know what his range is.

Utilizing the half swing helps reduce those times when you have a bad shot purely because you didn’t know how hard you needed to hit it.

And those few shots you add because of uncertainty can add up on your scorecard as just doing that on 1/4 of the holes can take what could have been an 85 or even 80 and turn it into a 90+
