Spider-man Camilo Villegas putting strategy, using your brain to defeat the brawn and two bits for better putting

Click here to listen.

"Spider-Man", "Trendsetter" and even "Rock-Star" are some the monikers which come to mind when branding 26-year-old Camilo Villegas. Magazines are targeting him, with People voting Villegas one of its hottest bachelors and Golf Digest naming him one of the most ripped golfers on tour.

His flexible signature maneuver on the green is memorable. And ladies are attracted to his retro look from international clothier J. Lindeberg, who has been hailed as the most influential fashion designer in Sweden, claiming to have "reinvented the wheel" when creating golf fashion.

Villegas seems a bit overwhelmed by the attention thrust upon him and prefers to talk about golf, not girls.

"If people like the way you play, the way you dress, the way you look, that’s all good. But the bottom line is my goal is to play good golf," Camilo stated in a Golfweek interview.

Take a tip from Natalie Gulbis, Camilo, and expand your horizons. Calendars and reality shows make plenty of money too and can turn Camilo Villegas the golfer into Camilo Villegas "business entrepreneur".

Camilo's ability to stay focused on his golf game is one reason why we have chosen a putting tip from the up-and-coming Columbian player. Another reason for our selection is that Villegas' positive putting stats on the PGA Tour don't lie.

Golf for Beginners also takes a look at the mental game, honing in on how to outthink and outplay the competition. This week's putting drill uses quarters as an incentive to make your view of the golf hole bigger and easier to hit. Click for more golf drills...

There’s no such thing as the perfect golf swing, but there is a perfect golf swing for you…

…a perfect swing that will astound your golf buddies every time you drive straight and long down the fairway.

Everybody knows you should learn from the best. So it makes sense to learn your perfect golf swing from Michael Bannon, the life-long coach and mentor to the most exciting golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy.

Michael Bannon knows what’s needed to produce your powerful and repeatable golf swing, no matter what level you are at right now. And soon you could be launching mammoth drives straight down the middle of the fairway, as your buddies fall silent in disbelief.

Michael has coached Rory McIlroy from he was just 8 years old to becoming the World No. 1 golfer, and he is still Rory’s trusted coach to this day.

He’s a real salt-of-the-earth, modest guy and often downplays his influence in Rory’s mega-success. You see, unlike most of the golfing “gurus”, Michael has an unusually simple approach to creating your perfect swing. And when Rory McIlroy says “Michael Bannon is undoubtedly the best golf swing coach in the world…”, then I guess we should pay attention.

Michael loves to teach and now he’s ready to teach you too. He has created an amazing and unique online golf swing coaching program he calls…

“The Six Step Golf Lesson”.

I guarantee it’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. And what’s more amazing, it only takes 10 minutes per day!

Have a look for yourself right here. ===> No.1 Golf Coach Reveals Simple Technique <=====

Michael is so confident that this simple and unusual technique will work for you and absolutely anyone, that he’s giving his personal guarantee to anyone who isn’t 100% satisfied.

Head over and check out Michael’s program now, and you’ll be on your way to producing your perfect, powerful and repeatable golf swing.

Best Regards

P.S. If you remember why Mr Miyagi was teaching the Karate Kid to “Wax On, Wax Off”, then Michael’s 6 Step Golf Lesson will make perfect sense to you. Check it out here. ===> No.1 Golf Coach Reveals Simple Technique <=====
