Bruce Lewis: Aim for the green, not the hole

A logical way to make more birdies is to simply have more birdie attempts. And the key to more attempts is to hit more greens in regulation.

Bruce Lewis: The head changes a golfing stroke

This is an old tip that someone reminded me of several weeks ago. Many golfers tilt and turn their heads while at the address position. This is an issue because golfers tend to start their back swing in the same direction their heads are tilted.

Bruce Lewis: Learning golf from Buster Posey

Bruce Lewis: Soft hands are the key to a good golf...

Some ladies — and quite a few beginners — lift their heel until only the toe of their shoe is on the ground.

Bruce Lewis: Finding the right stance shouldn’t be hard

Golfers must thing they are Superman or the Hulk because when I ask my students to keep their feet shoulder-width apart, their feet are about four-feet wide.

Bruce Lewis: Practice like a banker

When you golf, think about your practice time as making deposits and playing time as withdrawals from your golfing account. Make big deposits with good practice sessions and fixing troubled shots.

Bruce Lewis: Using the stripe will fix a golfer’s game

Using the stripes on range balls when practicing is a very useful tool.
