Hit up on the driver!

Ever here the term "Tee it high and let it fly?" Well do just that. The equator of the ball should be atleast at the top of the driver. Thanks to Trackman we can now measure angle of attack. We can see that a positive 2.0 to 3.0 launch angle give you better distance and less spin. So tee it high and let the ball fly!...

Pitching the ball

Most players don't spend enough time pitching the ball. Different from the chip, the pitch spends 80 percent of its time in the air. For instance you would pitch the ball over a bunker to a tight pin. The ball position should be played forward in your stance. The swing starts off by rocking your arms back in a one piece take away. Once your arms reach the 9 o?clock position you then cock your wrists making a 90 degr...

Moment of truth!

Most golfers have a problem with hitting the ball solid. If you watch the tour players, when the miss shots they usually miss left, right, and long. They always hit the ball hard and solid. This comes from the impact position. ?The moment of truth? Two things need to happen to hit the ball solidly. First the weight of our body need to be transferred to your front side and second your handle of the club needs to be i...

Making 4 foot Putts

Most golfers have trouble with this distance, especially if there is a couple of inches of break in the putt. Put a tee in the back of the cup to focus on when you aim. I always aim for the center of the hole where the tee is sticking out of the side of the cup. Go through your pre-shot routine just as you would on a full swing. Then take dead aim at the back of the cup. Stroke the putt harder than you would to take...

Pre-Shot Routine

All golfers should have a routine and that they stick to when playing golf. A routine can help in many ways. It has a calming effect on thr golfer. A routine is something you do over and over the samw way.  Once I get aimed up properly I start a count down. I look to the target and count 1- one thousand, look at the target again and 2- one thousand. Take my back swing 3- one thousand then hit the golf ball on 4- on...

Ball Position

Most golfers do not devote enough time to on playing the proper ball position with a driver. The ball should be played off the instep of the left foot. Start buy putting both feet together with the ball lined up in the canter of your toes. Move your front foot first an inch to position the ball off your instep. Then take the width of your stance with your right foot. This will insure you have the correct ball positi...

Chipping

Chipping is one of my favorite shots. I think of a chip as an extra long putt. My favorite club of choice is an 8 iron. A chip is a shot that spends 20% of its time in the air and 80% on the green running to the hole. The ball position should be off your back foot this position would keep the ball low to the ground. Your weight should favor the front side or lean towards the hole. Finally rock your arms like a pendu...

Playing in the wind

Most golfers will start to dust off the clubs at the first sign of spring. What you should know that most spring golf is played in wind gusts sometimes up to 30 mph. One way to navigate yourself around the course is to keep it low under the wind. First, start buy taking an extra club or two. If you hit a 7 iron then drop down to the 6 or 5 iron. Second, play the ball off your back foot. This will help de-loft the cl...
