Golf tips for using the mirror as a golf training aid for swing improvement
It is time to get ready for the 2011 golf season and if you live in cold areas of the world, well, that is no excuse.
The time to start is now, so, get off the couch and get a head start on a better swing and game. You only need a 5, 6 or 7 iron, a full length mirror and a little patience. Actually, this infatuation I have with the mirror all started in 1983 when I set about rebuilding my own golf swing after being away from the golf profession for over 7 years. As I left the driving range I was helping build one day, (shortly after re entering the golf business), the teaching mirror being delivered. Something clicked for me.
I went straight home, took a 7 iron, went into our walk in closet, set the club in the hitting position, and BINGO! When I looked at my reflection in the mirror, I realised those 7 years had caused me to lose my sense of feel for the correct set up position. I was able to see what had changed with my grip, stance, head position, spine, weight distribution…EVERYTHING!
