    Iโ€™m Liam Harrison, Bolton born and bred. Iโ€™m a lover of Golf, life and laughter.
    Started Golf 12 years ago after packing in football when i was 28 due to a back injury.
    I started the TheXvid channel as a laugh and a Wim, to make me practice but that went out the window as i started vlogging, loving being on camera but more so the interaction with my #golfmates.
    In 14 months i have seen the channel evolve and become the only real golf community on TheXvid which i am extremly proud of.
    I would like to thank all the #golfmates that have been with us and supported us and the channel from the start. Also not forgetting our new #golfmates that may have only just come across the channel.

    The pre shot routine Dave gave you will help, if not Dave's one of your own. Use something that fits you and your personality. Some people sing a song inside their head to aid their tempo. For you Liam one swing thought is what you need I am sure. I have been catching up on all the past video's, had me laughing so many times, job done. Best of luck with the swing this year, with your timing when it's good and those Spanish hands your handicap could be 3 or 4 lower easily.

    Hi Liam, it is difficult to get changes engrained in. What I do is after range time I then go out on the course by my self and work on the changes. I find it helps a lot since you can realy work on it.

    I like those left-handed hooks you are hitting. I would just aim left and let it peel. Easier way to play-just think "Bruce Lietzke".

    Liam, wish I could get out for a round today! We got another 4-8" of snow up here in Michiagn's Upper Peninsula.... A couple more months and I should be able to start getting out. Question for you, I see your dad, and OMP wearing rain pants a lot. Are they insulated??? Can you share what brand they may be???? Thanks! Paul in Ishpeming, Michigan, USA.

    You're getting into your own head. Then it seems to me you forget your pre shot ritual. Just my observation. I haven't played since new year's day and anxious to get out and work on the tips you and Dave did.

    Lee Trevino always said practice youโ€™re bad habits. They are the only things you will remember when youโ€™re under pressure. Liam imbrace the slice ,be the slice. And if it works for you maybe I will give a try. Ha Ha Great content as always.

  • Tommy Romero-Butler
    Tommy Romero-Butler 2 months ago

    Hey there I can't promise it'll work but if you haven't tried go ahead and try to take it back outside steep it's easier to shallow and get inside. You come inside a lot taking it back which leads to coming over the top with a lot of people. It's one of those opposite golf things so try to take it back outside steep and bring it in shallow inside. Hope it helps foore!

  • Bill Byrnes
    Bill Byrnes 2 months ago

    Liam, love ya man, but listen to me for a minute. I did the same thing with my driver, casting. Guess what helped me? Take your driver in your left hand, swing back and through like your trying to play golf with one hand, ten times. Pay attention to the path it's taking! Now, ten times with your right hand. PAY ATENTTION to the path. NOW, ten times with both hands. This not only loosens me up and stretches me out for the first tee, you get use to the path you want the club to take. Once or twice as a pre shot routine helps. I am driving the ball straighter and farther now that I slowed my swing down, no more herky jerky, try to swing as hard as I can, twist the body before you bring the club down crap! It helped me after playing golf off and on for thirty plus years. Good program, say hey to Josh, OMP, and the boys. Went and played today, forty degrees, ground frozen, raining, shot 43,46. Had a blast! Thank OMP for me, double, par, bogey, par, par, double, double, par, bogey / par, bogey, double, bogey, bogey, double, double, bogey, bogey. Not one 7, 8, or 9. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    Liam. Take a tip from omp. Leave your ego and your driver at home. If you use ronseal more like at West lands you would be more consistent. You keep lifting your hands. Remember you play off 8 you are not a pro. Just enjoy your golf ffs

  • Rick Hussey
    Rick Hussey 2 months ago

    Liam' you are not rotating your back foot and finishing with your heel pointing north and the balls of your foot planted. I am a golf mate from New York I was a solid 3 cap but I just had open heart surgery can't swing at all but I had the same problem some years ago. When you go to Florida I may drive down just to meet you guys. Try what I said and you can hit a draw

    ps, our greens are probably the best in Holland right now!! (even if I do say so myself!!!)

  • Ron Sterud
    Ron Sterud 2 months ago

    I still contest, your issue is in your alignment and stance. You need to close your stance a touch to prevent you from coming across the ball. Slow your swing down and build muscle memory and gradually and incrementally, move that back foot back to square. It will take time, nothing that can be fixed in 5 hours when youโ€™ve reinforced muscle memory with bad fundamentals for months.

    Don't be too hard on yourself Liam, I generally take 140 + strokes for a round having 'improved' from an average of 170 +. If you'd like a laugh, invite me over for a round - I'll give you the money before we tee off.

    Loving the content! Question about winter rules. Does the pick in place 6 inch rule apply just on the fairway rather than if you end up behind a tree? You can end up behind a tree in any weather canโ€™t you?! I know I do.

    I watch your videos all the time. I love the comrodary, and when you bag on each other. I noticed you have a lot of whip, probably from your grip. Pull the ball in closer, (like half ball or full), choke down for a little stability.๐Ÿ‘
