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?
