Golf Swing Help – I need golf swing help now but first I want to tell you that most of these events occurred previously and the tails about my current golfing scores have been occurring over the summer. It is October as I post these but the current events happened June, July, August and September of 2010.
If you are just now starting to read my blog I would advise that you go to the beginning and read back up to current so that you understand how life got in front of golf and what led to the loss of my golf swing and how I am getting it back.

To become a better golfer, I decided I needed golf swing help to get the perfect golf swing.
So I decided that this plan would have to work as I could not afford to start and stop the training. But during all of this, I would take my wife out to play golf with me and guess what? She got the bug! She loves to play golf even though she cannot play very well. Like most wives, she does not take criticism very well.
So I began to help her with a simple golf swing and when she would ask a question, I would ask her one that would help her decide to change what she was doing.
While doing that, I was helping me understand my faults and help me to swing better. My golf scores were still high and it was still very frustrating.
Then I realized that part of my problems were that I was trying to hit everything down the third base line. I use a baseball grip to swing. That is not a problem as I used that type of grip whan I was a four handicap. So I began concentrating on my old golf swing to see if I could remember what I did to compensate for that grip and golf swing.
Then one day, it popped into my head. I finally heard the words that the guys and my wife used to say. “Your golf swing is too fast”! It finally sunk in and it was not entirely my follow through it was also my back swing.
I remember an old guy I used to play with who would tell me that you cannot hit any golf ball on your back swing. It was meant to show me that I must slow my back swing down and even stop at the apex of the swing before going forward.
