Study the President's Cup Players

[Editor's note: We've asked some of GT's instruction editors to share their thoughts with our audience. Steve Dahlby of Golf Club Scottsdale and Forest Highlands in Flagstaff, Arizona, was the first to take us up on the offer. Here's his first entry. Enjoy]

If you get the chance to watch some of the action at the President's Cup this week, take note of the variety of swings the players have. You will see many different techniques based on that players search for the best way for him to play his best golf. Some swings will be based on balance and timing while others will be based more on getting the club into certain positions. The thing these players have found is the best technique for them as individuals.

I truly believe there is no one way to swing the club but in studying all theories, a player can find his or her best technique.

One thing to take note of though, is that all the players, regardless of their styles, will have very consistent preshot routines to allow them the best chance to hit great shots. If a player changes his routine during a round, I believe they will struggle.

Enjoy the tournament and see if you can pick up something that can help you with your game. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at, or the video tips section at Golf Tips Magazine.

In practice this is often a shot. You will probably find that it is not as difficult as you think it is. In fact, some golf out of sand, because they feel the shot is easy, because they can lose the ball and hit a great shot.
