Sir Nick Faldo Instruction series


When the chance to film golfing tips with a six-time major champion comes along you simply don't turn it down.

That's what happened last year when we attended the Grand Final of the Faldo Series, where Sir Nick himself was in attendance and kindly took the time to teach us a few of the tricks that helped him become the world's best player.

The first quick lesson we filmed together focused on alignment, an often overlooked part of the game and fitting given that Sir Nick was known for his relentless accuracy. 

Lesson two from Sir Nick demonstrated how you can use the humble tee peg to help improve your takeaway and adjust to playing in different conditions.

The third lesson filmed at Stoke by Nayland saw Sir Nick head to the sand to offer some bunker play tips, inspired by his belief that mimicking the game's best players can pay huge dividends.

Many golfers, elite and amateur, obsess over their backswing and spend enormous amounts of time working on it while neglecting their follow through. The next lesson in our series with Sir Nick aims to get you paying more attention to the latter part of your golf swing, with a view to greater targeting.

It's tempting as a golfer to focus on playing shots from clean lies and range mats in practice to aid scoring from positive positions but not enough people practice playing from tricky lies. The final lesson in our instructional series with the three-time Open Champion challenges this methodology, encouraging you to practice playing from more testing lies.
