Golfers are gear heads, equipment nerds and endless tinkerers, so when one of those late-night infomercials comes on promising instant results after having a few drinks, we listen a little more intently and have a tendency to get a little click-happy online. That’s where our Late Night Online Purchases franchise comes in, a review of a certain piece of equipment, training aid or something else that caught our eye with the help of our friends at BudgetGolf.com.
For golfers, it’s not hard to understand the allure of the game: the quest for lower scores. Paul Azinger says routinely during his broadcasts that “golf is a simple game, but it’s not easy.” What he means is that the basics of the game are easy enough to pass along, but the execution of all of those in conjunction with one another is a completely different story.
The 5 Simple Keys to Consistency packages and breaks down each of the five pieces of the swing that Randy Sparks, Chuck Evans, Dave Wedzik and the folks at Medicus Golf have identified as the most important in any swing.

The five simple keys are a steady head, weight forward, flat left wrist, sweet spot path and clubface control. The book breaks down and explains why each of these five keys is imperative to the golf swing. More often than not, golfers have any number of these keys working in unison with one or two getting a little loose. The book acts as an immediate fix.
If a golfer is keeping their head steady, getting their weight forward and has good control over the clubface, but is still missing shots, they can go to the book, which features in-depth illustrations and helpful advice to fix their left wrist and sweet spot path.
As Dr. Bob Rotella wrote, “Golf is not a game of perfect,” but the quest for it is always on the top of every golfer’s mind. A helpful guide like Purestrike’s 5 Simple Keys to Consistency is a back-to-the-basics approach that will have you shooting lower scores after one sitting.
