The golf swing is a tricky, personal phenomenon, but one that has evolved over time. In its general form, however, the modern understanding of the swing can be riddled with misconception, according to longtime instructor Dr. T.J. Tomasi.

Tomasi joined the Podcast this week and applied decades worth of teaching and sociological knowledge to debunk the five biggest myths in golf. Those myths are:

1. All good players are the same at impact.
2. The ball flight tells you everything.
3. Practice makes perfect.
4. Perfect golf comes from an unconscious swing.
5. Hitting the ball well during a lesson means you’re moving in the right direction.

Check out Tomasi’s insight in the podcast below.
