The Next Step...
"Golf really is no harder than riding a bike or driving a car. It can be that simple if you don't disrupt your learning system".
Cameron Strachan's, founder, GolfGooRoo.com, favourite saying
Are you ready to learn more?
This is an important question because not everyone is ready.
The vast majority of golfers are looking for some quick-fix. That magic tip that will have them playing better.
These golfers aren't ready.
Because learning and improving and obtaining deep satisfaction is rarely so simple. You can't just keep trying all these rubbish tips and tricks and expect to get better.
Just doesn't work. But if you expect them to work and you keep looking for this as a solution then I can't help you.
Learning is a process. It's a bit like a farmer who tends his crop each day. He waters it. He sprays fertiliser and he certainly pulls some weeds.
He turns up often and realises that nothing good is coming quickly. The farmer is patient.
And most things worth achieving take time. It's a marathon, not a sprint. I think you know what I mean.
And if you want to play your best golf I reckon you need three things going for you:
- You must stop thinking so much. Too much thinking disrupts your flow and stifles learning
- You must strive to swing more instinctively. This really is the best way. Your natural swing/game is simply way more powerful, reliable and easier to repeat than anything some swing mechanic can dream up.
- You must play more. This doesn't mean you need to play everyday. Nope, that's not what I'm talking about. "Playing" is where it happens. The golf course is the arena. So you must practice how you play and become a master at getting that little ball into that damn hole.
How you best do this depends on you. There's no doubt you can search Youtube for all sorts of theories and swing ideas. Not sure if many of them will help you much.
You could take some golf lessons from your local pro. He's probably a great guy and well meaning. But experience tells me he'll fill you up and overload your system with rubbish.
My preference is you start trusting your own learning ability. To trust that you have enough skill, talent, strength and coordination to play how you want (because you do). I'd love for you to challenge the status quo and start playing how you really want.
It's fun. It really is. And it's probably the best way to find deeper satisfaction and enjoyment when you're on the course. The "normal" way is boring. YOUR way is remarkable - you just don't realise it yet.
Over the years I've had tens of thousands of golfers come to this site. I've made all sorts of mistakes and taken golfers on all sorts of tangents. I'm not about to do that now.
If you've been to "hell and back" with your game. If you've tried lots of theories. Bought new clubs and tried all the gimmicks then maybe you're ready. Ready to break the mold of traditional golf and try something that's going to work.
The issue here is this. To play golf naturally and freely requires NO god given talent. Every golfer, regardless of their age or ability can play closer to their potential. All you have to do is follow the above three steps.
And this is a biggie. Not all golfers can do this. They can't STOP thinking. They can't leave their swing alone. They don't know how to play golf their way. They just can't keep out of their own way to let their golf game thrive.
This is where coaching comes into play. If you want to know the BEST way to unlock your game in the shortest time you need coaching. If you want to avoid all the pitfalls and learn from those that have gone before you need coaching. If you're looking for a spark and are hoping to play better golf by the weekend then you definitely need coaching.
If you don't know how to play golf more instinctively and naturally then you'll need someone to point you in the right direction.
This is why I've written a FREE report. It's a little controversial but it will help shed some light on why you find golf so difficult and can't play consistently.
How To Play Better Golf By The Weekend
This FREE golf report will help point you on the path to better, more consistent and ultimately more rewarding golf. It's a little controversial so if some straight talk isn't going to bother you then I reckon you'll get a lot out of it.

Actually there's another thing you can do. And that is do what you've always done. This is certainly an option for many.
And there's nothing wrong with this. It can be scary to change. It can feel uncomfortable to walk a different path. There's uncertainty going against the grain.
But hear this.
I was chatting to a successful tour pro the other day about his game. And he has been going through the same shit that all of us go through. Fear. Self-doubt. Nerves. The lot! And when I told him about an easier way he was open. He was ready.
He then said this,
If I keep doing the same thing over and over but keep expecting a different result I'm crazy. I might as well check myself into hospital.
I agree. Sometimes we must leap and trust that our gut feeling and our intuition and our learning system know best.
One final thing: This type of coaching isn't for everyone. It's for those that have tried everything. Who know with every fibre that they have more talent. It's for those that are truly ready to unleash their best game.
Good luck and good golfing,
