Golf Specialist Mitchy Kierstenson
Thereís no doubt that playing golf is easy....
Well thatís a misconception to start with. Sure itís easy to put a ball on the ground and hit it, but getting it to go where you want it is something completely different.
As a professional golf specialist, letís start with the positives. You can hit the ball which is good, now we need to get the ball airborn and going forward on the line you intend it to go, this is easy also, but only in theory.
Why only theory? well the idea is to get the clubface back to the address position you started at, simple eh!
The only problem is that the clubface will be travelling at some speed and getting the face to the exact same position as at address is a trcik for most people.
Golf Specialist Training
The main thing I concern myself with, as a golf specialist, is to ignore all thoughts of distractions, such as bunkers, trees, water etc and allow my brain to empty itself completely of all distractions, including wind, then allow just the one thought, thatís hitting the ball.
Yes, even at my level I do need to actually hit it. The only thought I have before the take away of the club is making sure Iíve lined myself up to where I want the ball to travel. Sounds easy, well it is. Line yourself up and hit it, thatís all.
Generally, when you ignore all thoughts of in to out, or flat swing or upright swing etc you will probably hit it forward. Allow any other distractions into the brain and you probably wonít.
Part of the training I do as a golf specialist is more on the mindset than the physical stuff. Of course I make sure my pupils, from beginners to professionals can swing the club back & forth on the right plane, but honestly, Iím not too fussed if it moves about a bit because when it comes to the crunch I couldnít care less how the swing looks so long as the ball goes down the intended line on a regular basis.

Just below are some adverts for DVDs on the Golf swing...
The company I allow to advertise on the golf specialist web site are reputable, so please have a look the DVD catalogue and buy if you wish click here or on the graphic below on the right.
This is what the guys at Purepoint Golf have to say.
This isn't a new swing technique.
It's the same tried and true PurePoint Golf
Swing that's become the most popular, most
imitated swing in the golfing world.
What we've done is come up with...
A new way of teaching it.
For a long time now, I've been trying to come up with a way to show you how the corrections I demonstrate in our DVDs work in real time.
I also figured that if I was going to claim I could fix your swing problem with one lesson, it might be a good idea to show you that it was possible. By actually doing it.
So I picked seven of my students who were each having one of the most common swing problems and talked every one of them into letting us shoot a lesson.
We didn't use any camera tricks. And, as you'll see, we didn't use any actors. Just real golfers.
The one thing we did was edit each lesson so you don't have to sit through seven hours of them.
You'll see how each student was doing at the beginning of the hour and at the end. My point in showing you how I was able to help these real golfers fix their problems in an hour is simply this...
If it worked for them... It can work for you.
