Virtual Golf Lesson from FixYourGame.com
Video Golf Lessons Can Work
I recently had the chance to receive a complimentary virtual golf lesson from PGA Professional Brant Kasbohm from FixYourGame.com. Virtual golf instruction is an idea whose time has come. Now that video cameras are shooting in HD and even at high speeds (like my Casio) every golfer interested in improvement should really be giving virtual lessons a try. Not only is it a much cheaper alternative to a “live” lesson (though of course not quite as ‘real’) it’s a great way to force you to learn how to film your swing properly and to monitor your progress with repeated updates.
In the below video Brant has one major piece of advice for me: NARROW YOUR STANCE! In his opinion there will be a “snowball effect” from making this change, which should lead to a better shoulder turn. In the second video you can see that I’ve in fact been working on narrowing my stance and my swing is looking a little better. Let me know if you see any improvement in the second video, which was shot just last week (January 2011). The swing used in the video lesson with FixYourGame.com was recorded during early 2010. Looking at it now I can see that my super wide stance was really hindering my turn. I’m still restricted but that’s something I’m working on in the gym.

My swing now, with a narrower stance.
I would recommend checking out Brant’s site as his lessons are straightforward, reasonably priced, and professionally presented. He’s located in Wisconsin where apparently everyone is really nice. Steve Stricker being a prime example. Good luck to his Packers today! (It’s Super Bowl Sunday!)
