Are you just breaking the clubs out and a bit rusty after the holiday season?  Or, are you still struggling from last season and need to get back on track?  I have a couple quick tips that will get you back on track.  First, stretch some key areas of your body every time you get out on to the range.  Work on your hamstrings, lower back, torso, arms/shoulders.  Once you are feeling fairly loose, grab a long iron and start by swinging with a half swing and gradually making longer swings until you feel like you are making full swings.  When you have done this a few times, start counting out a tempo of 1-2-3, during the first swing and keep repeating this 1-2-3  during the next few as well (A metronome is great for this drill but it's not necessary).  The main focus is to try and keep your tempo the same on all of these swings while staying loose.  After making 10 swings like this, pull out the range balls and just let them get in the way of your club with this smooth tempo swing.  This drill will increase your consistency of contact, distance and accuracy.  I know this will get you off on the right foot for this season!

The PGA Championship is already upon us.  It has been a long time since Tiger and Phil were #1, #2 in the world.  Phil just won back to back tournaments, with one of them being the British Open.  Tiger just ran away with a 7 shot victory at The Bridgestone World Golf Championship.  The two biggest stars are playing well at the same time, but who will come out on top at Oak Hill Country Club?  Will we see another first timer take home a major?  I think it is tough to bet against any of these options but someone has to attain the Wanamaker trophy at the end of the weekend.  Out of these three options, my wager would go on Tiger.  This is hardly going out onto a limb but the last time he beat the field by 7 strokes he proceeded to go win the PGA Championship the following week.  I do know that a lot of people would choose the alternate options, but wouldn't it be great for the stars to align and have a finish with them within a shot or two going into the final holes?  In my opinion, that would be as good as it could get on Sunday afternoon!

After a few days of reflecting on The Open Championship, I can definitely say that the pressure effects even the best in the world.  Phil Mickelson won the British Open because he performed the best down the stretch.  Only a few players had good rounds to finish off their week in Scotland.  The ones who did play well didn't seem to have a chance because they were too far back.  The others in position to win collapsed when the heat was on.  These are some of the greatest golfers of a all time and even they succumb to the pressure.   Mickelson started accelerating while everyone was backing up.  He made 4 birdies in his last 6 holes.  I believe the keys to success in this situation is to stick to fundamentals, believe that you love the uncomfortableness of it and focus.  I think that Phil will use these tools to win at least one more major and many more PGA Tour victories.  The real question is will he win the U.S. Open.  This would finish off his career Grand Slam.  I think he will  pull it off, especially after seeing his closing performance at Muirfied.  Do you think he will get another?
