PGA Championship Sends Amateur Golfers Looking for Golf Swing Tips to Improve their Driving Distance.

August 16, 2004 -- Every week, avid golfers stay glued to the TV to watch their favorite golfer or to somehow learn how the PGA Tour players hit the ball so far or so accurately. After watching a tournament, golfers will try to mimic their favorite golfer or scour magazines and the internet trying to find the golf swing secret the professionals use to play so well.

"I teach golfers in 25 countries around the world over the internet and I notice the traffic of golfers looking for golf tips always increases after a big tournament."

Unfortunately, golf tips only address a certain symptom and while the fix may work for a few golfers, many will suffer further by complicating their swing problem if the tip doesn't address the real problem. Most golf instruction doesn't explain how the swing works, so golfers are in the dark about their true swing problems.

"I always warn golfers that golf tips may hurt their progress more than help it. I have found that most swing problems can be fixed just by teaching golfers how to know when they are in balance during their swing. I also show golfers how balance feedback can be used to increase distance and accuracy. Once they understand balance, the swing is much easier to maintain."

Tracy has developed an interactive course to teach golfers how to get the most from their golf game with less effort and not injure themselves in the process.

"Nothing bothers me more than talking to golfers who have injured themselves by trying different golf tips or worse, from instruction that did not address the all important posture of the swing. Posture alone counts for most injuries among amateur golfers."

When golf tips are shown on TV during golf tournament coverage, the pro always advises going to a competent golf professional before trying new techniques.

"If you don't know the reason for your golf swing problem, remember that golf tips can make matters worse before they will get better. To really improve you must understand how the golf swing works first."
