It may come as no surprise to you but you are not Bubba Watson and you don't look a thing like Rory McIlroy. Nine chances out of ten you are older than Rory, you are not on the PGA or LPGA Tour and you don't practice golf five to six hours a day, every day you're not playing.

So when the commentators on television start giving you golf instruction, dial back. You most likely cannot (to change the sport to soccer) "Bend it like Beckham." What I teach on my lesson tee and in the tips thousands of golfers around the world see here are the fundamentals of golf, sure-fire tips that will, without question, immediately improve your game. I want you to get better and have fun. And, well, all things considered, Bubba, Rory, you watching this?
