If you measure age and maturity in years, the Maître de Mont-Tremblant is a young golf course, established in 2001. But if you’re talking character, this is an old soul.  “Le Maître”, named in honour of its signatory architect, internationally known golfer Fred Couples (who won the Masters in 1992), features wide, generous, rolling fairways and, like a fortified

When it comes to hitting the ball, all golfers have a natural ball flight tendency that they tend to fight. Golfers at all levels should learn to curve their drive intentionally, because in doing so they’ll learn more quickly how to drive straight to the target. The science behind shaping or curving your shots is simple. When the clubhead and the clubpath orientation are not matched, your ball

From the first day of school, and even on the day they first come home with their parents, youngsters are told what to do. No matter where the information came from, the message was delivered by a taller person who looked down at him from way, way up. Over time, it’s normal that your child (and your inner child) wants some peace to be able to play freely. While we all mean to apply the rules

The momentum of your swing does not depend on what you do with your weight, but on awareness of the positioning of centres of gravity in your body. There is, no question, a link between the mass (weight) and the centre of gravity of the body (mass balance), but they are two different things. For example, everyone who plays golf wants to achieve good weight transfer on the front leg prior to impact,

Fall is the perfect time to “go play outside”. The symphony of colours, increased oxygen level and laughter with friends inspire the most beautiful swings. It’s also the best time to test your skills, because with the cooler temperatures, frisky winds and damp surfaces, your impacts need to be better. To be successful at golf, particularly in the fall, you have to swing in a way

The pros make their swing look so simple and easy to do. In fact, it’s the application of a number of tiny details that makes the movement so natural, functional and esthetically pleasing. One of these details is the specific movement of the wrist joint. In golf, the wrist plays an important role, because it connects ‒ joins ‒ the action of the body and that of the club. When the forces

Every summer I have the privilege of watching the growth and evolution of more than 150 young people and, because of this, of catching a glimpse of their future as it unrolls before my eyes.

It is every golfer’s dream to achieve a powerful swing without too much effort. To manage that, you have to respect certain biomechanical basics. In other words, if you don’t use the right parts of the body at the right moment, your dream will never come true. The problem The problem for the majority of golfers is that they are incorrectly positioned prior to their swing and they try to

Do you plan to play just for the fun of it this year? Unless, by taking a few lessons, you decide to play in tune. Or again, perhaps after absorbing the basics, you’ll feel like improvising as you “play by heart”.  So…what will you decide?

In any discipline, mastery of the basics is the key to success. The first thing to remember in golf is to be positive and attentive. Once you have created this state of openness and receptivity, you must intensify your focus and put it where it counts the most. The idea is to bring into awareness the elements on which you put your attention, whether they are external (what’s going on outside)

To improve your experience of the game, I suggest you take a quick trip to the zoo. The idea is to strengthen your mental and physical faculties by being guided by positive images and key words that facilitate progress. Imitate the way a gorilla stands To address the ball, just lean towards it (from your pelvis) because it’s lying on the ground. Imagine a gorilla’s posture. It is leaning,

For some time, researchers in neuroscience have been interested in the beneficial effects of creative visualisation. Curiously, our brain does not distinguish between an actual movement and one done mentally. Consequently, it’s possible to improve your game and swing by doing a visualisation, particularly at the moment when the action takes place. Step 1 Find a quiet corner in the practice centre

Before you hit your first balls of the season, I invite you to ask yourself these two fundamental questions: “with what attitude will I play this year?” and “Am I ready to do what I have to do to improve?” If you’re the type of person who’ll take on a project with the attitude, “get out of there”, it speaks to your will and your determination to succeed

He explains that you have to do a series of what he calls “chest-bras” – “chest” is an English word, of course; “bras” means “arms” – to muscle up nicely. But what about the legs?

It’s very hard to convince a golfer to stop digging, particularly if he believes that his condition, which is all about waiting for a brief, unpredictable pleasure, is permanent and everlasting. For other players who always think and act in the same way but who live in the hope of achieving different results, Dr. Albert Einstein said of them that they had a serious self-evaluation to do: after

There are undoubtedly numerous ways to swing a golf club. Some swings are neither functional nor good for the golfer’s health. Others take you where you want to go but are responsible for a number of injuries, particularly to the joints of the spine, the wrists, the elbows, the hips and the knees. Finally, there are those rare ones which once properly executed, in addition to being functional

There is so much to learn in golf, and so little time to assimilate all of it. Getting to know the fundamentals is therefore important, perhaps even essential. In order of priority, here is my list of the four “must have” skills. Attitude Having confidence in yourself and your abilities is completely illogical and irrational. This is so because your level of confidence depends on faith,
