A Lesson Learned: Generating Power
Scott Piercy won the RBC Canadian Open, in large part because of his four-birdie run early in the final round. And that run was punctuated when he drove the green on the 300 yard par 4 fifth hole. Wouldn't it be great if you had that shot in your bag?

A Lesson Learned: Importance of a consistent pre-shot routine
This week's HP Byron Nelson Championship at TPC Las Colinas in Irving, Texas, certainly showed us what a roller coaster ride golf can be at times. As in life, golf has its highs and lows and that was clearly on display in the Lone Star State.

A Lesson Learned: Set up to Drive Well
A lot will be made of the extraordinary birdie putts Adam Scott holed, first at 18 and then at 10 in the playoff, to win the Masters. But Scottie wouldn’t have been in that position if he hadn’t driven the ball with such deft precision all week.

A Lesson Learned: Finish the race with what put you on top
You have to feel for Robert Garrigus. To be so close, to have that first PGA Tour win so firm in your grasp as you stand on the 18th tee of the final round and not walk away with the trophy, he'll be thinking about the events of that hole for a long time to come, I'm sure.

Check Your Centers
Did you know the golf swing has two centers, an upper, and a lower? The approximate location of you upper center is the top button on your golf shirt (if you have it buttoned). The approximate location of your lower center is your belt buckle.

Commit To Your Shot!
Quite often, when we hit a great golf shot we usually have a feeling that we are going to hit the ball well. It's a wonderful feeling of confidence and composure. Then there are those times when you talk yourself into hitting a ball poorly or missing an easy putt.

Turn Away From Your Slice
One of the most important keys in fixing a slice permanently is to learn to swing the clubhead on an inside-to-out swing path through impact. In order to swing the club head into the golf ball from the inside of your target line, a full turn of the shoulders in the backswing is required.

Casting Recall: Stop the Power Loss
One of the most common errors that I see when giving lessons is the person who "casts" the club from the top to start the downswing. The shots that result are usually in two categories. First, there is the person who takes a divot that starts about a foot before getting to the ball.

Don't 'Come On Over'
Even with the best fundamentals, it's too easy to get quick with the start of the downswing when we are trying to hit it extra hard or because we're a bit nervy.
