“He who signs the checks” has asked “He who is not smarter than you” to write a blog for “Those who are smarter than I”.

Student Review of Bird Golf School at Wild Horse Pass

My few short days at Wild Horse Pass were truly an experience! The golf experience was all that I had hoped for as an introduction to a game that has intrigued me for some time but failed until now to take me in. Your selection of Lee Maiden as my coach and mentor was excellent.

Rhythm, Tempo and Timing

The tighter you hold the golf club, the less speed you create. The less swing speed you create; the less distance you hit the ball. The more you grip the club with your hands (small muscles/tendons), the less you swing with your body. Think of your body as the big muscles (shoulders/arms). If you want to hit the ball farther, would you use your big muscles or your small muscles? Your big muscles.

Golf with Moe

Moe Norman, long known as the greatest ever "ball striker." This is about my first game with him. It would be better if I had room to tell about how we met, but we’ll do that another time. The day we played, I arrived at The Canadian PGA's Winter Quarters in Titusville, FL. Moe was waiting. Without a word, he proceeded to hit four balls. The first three were perfect. The fourth was outstanding.

Bird Principle

Golf is a simple game that over the years has been complicated by teachers who over-analyzed their students and players who 'over-think'... themselves. If you have played for a few years, you probably find yourself reaching into your mental archives and using between 5-20 'swing thoughts' during a round.

Birdmuda Triangle

Golf is a game played on the ground! The further in the air that you have to hit a ball-the more room for error there is.There are two methods to the short game. One is a chip; a motion without lever. The other is a pitch; a single levered swing (an immediate hinge of the wrists on your takeaway).
