The majestic sight of a well struck golfball is, for me at least, a thing of beauty.

Jeff Sutherland And Jeff Palmer
Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to (re)build a 51-year old mid-handicap golfer with a grooved, mediocre swing. Jeff Sutherland will be that man. Can we make him better than he was before? Better (fitness), stronger (short game), faster (clubhead speed).
The idea here was to test the Hank Haney Project approach trying it with a Western Canadian golfer a little closer to Rush Limbaugh than Michael Phelps in both age and physical limitations.
And the Six-Million Dollar Man TV series reference is intentional. There have been advances in the past decade that have fundamentally changed golf teaching.

With the Masters now in the rear view mirror the golf season is fully upon us - certainly in terms of desire anyway.
Taking into account the weather may not be fully cooperating in your particular area, once you get out there it's always a good idea to have some fundamentals to work on in helping you attain 'crisp contact' on your shots.
And who doesn't want that?
With that in mind here's a tip from perennial Canadian Women's Long Drive Champion Lisa Vlooswyk on just how to accomplish that goal.

I’ve done it! I know exactly what I want out of my golf swing. A golf swing that proves manageable and repeatable.
And being relatively mobile, I’m light years ahead of the curve. My ideal shot shape is a slight push. No draws, no fading in conventional terms, just aim left of my target and push the golf ball towards it. Never going left of the initial target is all that really matters. Everything that stays right… or righter… of it brings me great comfort.
Right is right. This shot is simpler for me and the demons stay at bay. Mechanically, the checklist becomes quite manageable. Now, in no way am I endorsing that this shot shape is the be all, end all. I wouldn’t care if a golfer closed their stance and pulled the golf ball at the target, as long as they own it! Owning your golf swing is what matters. Is it proficient?
