What’s your Power Ratio? Grab a couple of shafts and let’s find out. In this fun Tip of the Week, I share the key points of why a power ratio is key for effortless power and balls that go far. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s make sure you are playing fairway bunkers, smart. The first order of business is to assess your lie and the distance from the bunker’s edge, also known as the lip. How much runway do you have? I share two scenarios and a great tip to learn if your ball will indeed clear the lip. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s get you sweeping your woods off the fairway…not topping, as so many do. The woods are the only the club in the bag that approach the ball level. Your irons and hybrids have a slight descending approach. This means with our woods that we need to sweep the ball with little or no divot. I share are great pre-shot and/or drill to help you sweep with confidence. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s check your clubface at the top of your backswing, along with your wrist position. I see many players with either a shut or open clubface, as a result of their wrist position at the top. If it is shut or open, the first thing to check is your grip, followed by your takeaway. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s make sure your alignment is spot-on. I see too many players struggle with aligning their clubface and/or bodylines correctly to their intended line. If you are mis-aligned, you will most likely compensate at some point during the swing to redirect the ball back on line. Instead, let’s get you on target. I share a great visual to help you groove your alignment. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars and lots more distance, let’s show you how to leverage the ground with the power golf squat that we see the pros do so well. The move is essentially a squat as you transition…followed by a vertical jump (hip extension), as you move through impact. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, grab a couple of shafts and let’s groove your posture. One of the many fun things that I do with my students in my More Pars Camps. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s make sure that you are playing tricky shots around the green, smart. I walk you through my shot process from assessment, set-up and landspot to get it close. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s make sure your optimizing physics for max clubhead speed. Once you understand the why, then you’ll work hard to train your body to maximize your clubhead speed. Clubhead Speed + Centerface Contact = Ball Speed. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pats, let’s make sure you get out in one shot with smart thinking. I have a ball on a lip in a fairway bunker. I share a couple of options to help you decide. So, let’s get to it.
