Is the path to better golf BORING?

Here at GolfGooRoo global headquarters I’ve been saying that the path to better golf can be far from sexy. This email came through this morning that highlights what I’m on about: Funny thing happened today, just now in my backyard with some almost golf balls. I realized I wasn’t automatic. Here’s what I mean. I’m…

Technical golfer issue

technical golfer

I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve heard a technical golfer something like this: I like the idea of Automatic Golf but I’m a technical golfer. I like to think about my golf swing when I play. The vast majority of my clients are professionals (I call them “accountant” types). They just like…

[Part 2] Going Deeper

The other day I wrote about going deeper with your golf game. Here’s the follow up response from a golfer who is making huge inroads along the improvement process. I now know why I play. I play for the imperfectable nature that is the game of golf. It intrigues me deeply that no matter how…

Received the below from a reader this morning. Golf is purely individual. It’s how YOU play the game, not someone else. It’s you who hits the ball, not your playing partner, your coach, or anyone else, but you. It’s how you play your game that makes your game work. Individuality, like Moe Norman, Ben Hogan,…

What 10 years of Automatic Golf has taught me…

2015 is my unofficial 10th year of playing what I call Automatic Golf. I definitely stumbled onto it during the early 90’s but I was too dumb (and brainwashed) to realise. The light certainly went on in the early naughties but I was too busy galavanting around the world and doing a bunch of other…
