Hi there all GolfFools,

I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. With 30 golf courses within an hour's drive this is a golfer's paradise. A bit hot and humid but who cares when there are a few cold beers waiting after the game.

I stumbled upon this board by accident and thought I'd share a tip that works for me.

As we are told as beginners and experience every time we play, the follow-through is probably the most important part of the golf swing for those straight, dream-like shots.

We have all heard the teaching pro say: "Throw the club at the target" (not literally, I hope) etc. etc. Somehow that never achieved the desired results for me. I either hooked the ball or worse sliced it over onto the next teebox. What helped me is this:

After the usual alignment to the target (at 12 o'clock) have a mental picture of swinging the club out at 2 o'clock and do just that. However since your body is turning, the effect is that your club face will be square at impact and usually produce a straight shot and a good follow-through. With small variations you can then produce a draw or a fade as required.

Since most Fools I have had the pleasure of meeting on the boards shoot straight, I suspect not many need my advice.

Back to the CREE board, where I usually post.

HA! SEA99, it's good to see you on the Goling Tips board. Believe me, as one man who has been hitting it crooked lately, any mental tips are good ones. I plan to get my sticks and start hittin the range soon, and I'll be thinking about you and 2pm when I do.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Best,

Bogey <----sad, but so true.
