If you know me or this podcast I’m usually pretty quick to tell someone to holster their driver in favor of a more controllable club, especially if it’s costing them penalty strokes off the tee.
I’m not against hitting driver, I’m just very guarded against taking penalty strokes. Today we are going to look at what are some key things to focus on when we actually do hit the driver well on a consistent basis.

This is definitely a heavy hitter for most golfers. Even some of the best golfers you know likely slice the ball, they've just learned how to play it.

Golf is a tricky thing. It’s a difficult game, with a TON of moving parts. If you’ve been listening to me for any period of time you know that I’m a big fan of minimizing the number of variables in a golf swing so you have less opportunities to take a wrong turn.
Well today I’d like to lay a bit of foundation underneath that by talking about the concepts of a simple golf swing for beginners.
During the episode I mention a video and a gif (hard 'g' or we're not friends) that you can check out on our episode page here: https://www.golfstrategyschool.com/simple-golf-swing-for-beginners/
The driving range is somewhere I hold very near and dear to my heart. It’s a place I've gone to practice, to have fun, to celebrate with friends, and to just zone out and relieve some stress. With that in mind we should do our best to make sure others can use the driving range for all these things as well. Let's take a look at some basic etiquette so you won’t stand out like a sore thumb if you were to show up at a driving range near me and a tip or two so you can get as much out of your driving range time as possible!

The 40 yard pitch shot can be one of the toughest shots in golf. Frankly, it tends to be my personal nemesis. Any time I see my scores start to swell, it’s usually due to a few failed instances from this distance. I know that when I’m on my game from 40 yards I will consistently hit the middle of the club face, I will have complete control over the ball flight, and a surprising amount of spin. Let's look at exactly how we should do it.
Also, stick around to the end for an awesome contest announcement!
Let's set ourselves up for success and put the ball in the best position as possible on the greens!

This episode we're diving into an article by Dylan Dethier that explores the real success rates that PGA Tour players have with different length putts.
The reason I bring this up is to let you know when you're being too hard on yourself. I know I've certainly had a three putt follow me from the green and impact my tee shot on the next hole. Hopefully putting some context around the true difficulty level of these putts will help you avoid that common pitfall.

I've been in Scotland for the better part of June and it's been a crazy experience. To add to all those experiences, I got to tour St Andrews Links!
It was an amazing time touring the grounds of the Old Course and the rest of the St Andrews facility. The biggest surprise during my time there is how much golf they fit into such a small space! The tee boxes are just a few paces off of the greens, of which several holes share. Something that was quite surprising, that I didn't realize from TV was that there are SEVEN shared greens and all of the hole numbers add up to 18 (2&16, 5&13, etc).
Josh Boggs returns to share his view on why most people struggle to break 90.
