The best golf tip I've ever received was from Golf Digest.
00:06
They said don't hold the club so tight.
00:08
You know, loosen up a little bit.
00:10
Enjoy your backswing.
00:12
Don't get out of it so fast that you have no tempo.
00:15
Lee Trevino, he just said open up your hips,
00:17
clear your left side and let her go.
00:19
So I remember that from years and years ago.
00:22
Well, I think the best golf tip you could ever receive
00:25
is understand your skill level.
00:26
That's where it starts.
00:27
And then from there, practice.
00:30
Stay as still as possible
00:31
and have some speed with your swing.
00:33
Find the bottom of your swing wherever it is,
00:36
and then put the ball there.
00:37
Is you don't have to go forward in two on every a five.
00:40
I always wanna be on the green at two,
00:41
and it's okay to not be there.
00:44
Best golf tip I ever got, take two weeks off and quit.
