Basic Golf Swing Lesson 1 - "The Golf Swing Secret"

Surprisingly - The key is to forget everything about golf mechanics and relax!!

When you are off the green or on the range - you can think mechanics, but on the golf course, the mechanics no longer matter - only the target matters.

The key to consistency is only thinking about what the ball considers:

  1. The path of the club
  2. The face angle of the club at impact

Always practice with a target in mind.
