Pitching like Clockwork

Pitching is one of the toughest skill sets for amateur golfers to become competent in. The most common fault amateurs make when faced with what I call 'scoring' approach shots is deceleration into the ball – especially on any kind of half shot when you are trying to take something off the maximum distance you could hit a particular club. Any time you decelerate you risk making a poor contact and that simply leads to inconsistency.

Golf In Qatar: From Sandy Beginnings To World Class Championship Layouts

I’m standing on the first tee at Qatar’s oldest golf club. And when I say ‘tee’, I mean a concrete block on which there is a temporary mat. In front of me, the first fairway stretches out some 400 yards. And when I say ’fairway’ I mean concrete runway strewn with sand and rocks. To hit from the fairway you have to place a portable astroturf mat onto the concrete. At least you’re assured of a decent lie. When I arrive at the ‘green’ I will find a large platform covered in sand. It’s actually called a brown. Welcome to bona fide desert golf – Qatar style.

The Secret to a Great Swing

It is safe to say that there is no “right way” to swing a golf club. You can see the evidence in the plethora of different styles and types of swings you see on the PGA tour, let alone your local driving range. But if you had to point out one thing that is shared by the greatest golfers in the world, it would be that they all have good tempo.
