You can probably imagine, that as I live on the Algarve I am surrounded by people who are addicted to the game of golf. Many people that I know have moved over here from the UK just so that they can play golf every day, The climate is perfect and some of the golf courses are world class, or so I am told.
I bump into people all of the time who are on golfing holidays and the amount of times I have got speaking to the wives of these golfers whist their husband are out playing the game that they love is unbelievable. I have often been astonished by the amount of money that these golfers are prepared to spend with the aim of improving their game but I know for a fact that many of them are struggling to shave a few shots off their handicap, and I also know that due to the state of the economy at the moment, finding the money to pay for all of these golfing extras is often not as easy as it once was.
Anyway, a friend of my husbands announced over dinner one evening that he had decided to take up the game but he didn’t have the money to spend on expensive tuition. He had only just managed to scrape the money together in order to buy a set of second hand golf clubs so I decided to do him a favor and ask around the golfers that I know to see if they had any advice.
I was surprised when the name of a recently released video course kept cropping up so I decided to investigate further. The video course in question can be found at aussiegolfswing.comand it has been put together by a chap called Maurice O’Connell. As soon as I visited the website I knew straight away that this would be the video course that my husbands friend would absolutely love and would get him off to just the start that he needed and would mean that he wouldn’t lose his enthusiasm in those early days.
It would seem that Maurice is the ideal person to put a video course like this together, he is 64 years old and had not played golf for 10 years or more, he wanted to return to the game mainly for the health benefits but even though he was once a decent golfer he just could not get his golf swing right and it got to the stage where he felt like giving up.
To cut a long story short he spent ages figuring out where he was going wrong and he came up with a solution that has literally changed his life. The resulting video course explains exactly what he did to improve his game and these videos will help golfers who have been playing for years as well as those who are just starting out. My husbands friend went ahead and purchased them and it is lovely to see what confidence that this video course has given him. He says he found them really easy to follow and that it is obvious that a great deal of care and attention has gone into making them which I am sure you will agree, makes a big difference in this day and age when products are churned out without much thought going into them.
I have to admit though that I now have a bit of a problem myself, my husbands friends wife is not very happy with me at all because he now spends all of his spare time out on the golf course, I’ll have to have a look around and see if I can come up with something for her to get involved with!
