You Do Not Want To Pay For Golf Lessons, Right?

Phoenix, Arizona Golf Lessons Update – January 27, 2010

There are many reasons why golfers and new golfers will not pay for lessons. Perhaps you have taken golf lessons, but you still have not improved. Did you take golf lessons, but did improve only to go back to being frustrated? Are you reluctant to take lessons for fear of failure and wasting your money. mad golferWhy pay if your skeptical, right? Why pay because you do not trust the golf instructor, right? Your friend is a golfer and he will coach you, right? You are thinking of hiring the guy on Craigslist who says, “why pay high lesson rates, I only charge $15 per half hour.” There is a reason why he charges only $15 dollars.

Here is what I recommend you do: Look up the definition of “swing.” Also, see if you can find the definition of “swing” in any golf magazine; good luck in find it. If you would like help to find the right golf instructor for you, then please contact me by phone and/or email.

Phoenix Metro Golfers: There Is A River At Rio Salado Golf Course

Arizona [Phoenix Metro] Golf Lessons Update for January 26, 2010

With all the rain here in Arizona of late, the rain made its way through Rio Salado golf course in Tempe. The river, which is usually dry is full of water from last week’s storm. It was nice to play golf last week with water in the “water hazzard;” certainly not the norm.

Superio Golf Shafts – The Premium Golf Shaft

Robbie-CamachoPhoenix, AZ Golf Lessons: Update by Robbie Camacho for January 21, 2010

I re-shafted my Ping G5Ping G5 9 degree driver with the Superio HM-50T. I was originally going to re-shaft my Taylor Made R7 driver, but I went ahead with the Ping G5. The shaft and head worked out very well. Here are my specs: Superio HM-50 T X Flex 45.25 long. If you are in the market for a new shaft, then do consider Superio Golf Shafts, I highly recommend this shaft company.

About Superio Golf Shafts
Superio HM-50T
Superio HM-50T uses Full-Length 50T grade carbon sheets plus Nano technology. They strongly believe the higher-grade 50T carbon material will help you gain much better results. You will find the shaft produces a very tight shot dispersion, great feel, and incredible ease of control. I can certainly attest to the following:

1. Tighter dispersion as compared to the OEM shaft in my Ping G5.
2. Longer carry.
3. More roll.
4. Longer drives [for me: 270 yards – 290 yards.]
5. Tip stiff [my preference]
6. Mid-flex [my preference]
7. Great feel
8. Aesthetically pleasing colors and graphics

Wedge Play

Tempe – Phoenix – Scottsdale – Arizona Golf Lessons Update: January 18, 2010

Do you chip with your pitching wedge, sand wedge, or lob wedge?Eidolon Wedges Perhaps you use all three on occasion. Oh, and you may have a “gap” wedge too, sorry. But if you use all of them, then here is a suggestion with regards to “spin” and “roll”. Choose your weapon of choice and proceed with this if you want more roll: Grip your club to full length. For more “spin” so that the ball bites and stops: Grip down on the club. You can vary how much you grip down. You will see a difference on how the ball reacts by just altering your hands high or low onto your golf club.

For more information about golf instruction and golf coaching in Tempe, Arizona, please contact me. You can set a time in the morning, afternoon, and evening, and late evening as well. Note to all golfers aspiring to get better: There are no shortcuts, gimmicks, clubs, magic potions, and “guarantees” on how to improve.

Attention Arizona Golf Fans: Are You Reading What To Do, But Not Improving Your Golf Swing?

For all Arizona golfers and golfers worldwide: Update for January 12, 2009

You probably have read many golf tips and articles from all the major golf publications such as, Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Golf Illustrated, Golf Tips, Golf For Women, Senior Golfer, Golf Week, and your local free golf publications. But are you really improving your golf swing? Do you get frustrated to the point of giving up? Are you desperate to “try” anything at this point? Well, even the best player(s)TW get frustrated too. But of course it’s at a different level of frustration, right? After all they are the best on the planet.

Well, you are not only reading from the mags, you are probably getting swing advice from your buddies,, Golf Channel, DVD’s, and the Internet. But here is what you are not getting [most of the time] the reasons of “why” and “because.” I am sure at some time in your golf history someone told you to keep your eye on the ball, keep your head down, turn your shoulders, fire your hips, hold the club as if you were holding a bird, right? But very few will tell you “why” and “because why.” As a golfer you need to know why you should do “something,” and that “something” is to learn how to swing the golf club.

For more information on how to “swing” the golf club, please contact me at (602) 828-GOLF, or email rcamacho at azgolfinstructor dot com. If you would like the answers, I will tell you “why” and “because.”

Happy Golfing In 2010,

Phoenix / Tempe / Scottsdale / Arizona Golf Lessons Updated for January 8, 2010.

The other day I was practicing at Rio Salado Golf Course in Tempe, and I wanted to share this:

Cleaning your golf clubs is obvious, but how one does it may vary. The “cleaning tool” that Dolly uses really works. It is small and will fit in any size golf bag. All you need is water and soap (dish washing soap).
