Dial in Your Chips & Pitches! If you want more pars, but struggle with distance control and solid contact from 70 yards and in, try the hinge & hold, extend and fold. Not only will this technique groove your shorts shots, it will also improve your long game. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, let’s get you effortless power from the fairway with your irons. The secret to compression is to strike down with force as you swing through. So, let’s get to it!
If you want more pars, but struggle with missed putts, grab the flagstick and a tee and let’s ensure your path is on track. The path of the putter works slightly inside-square-inside. I see players, instead taking the putter outside to inside at some point in the stroke. So, let’s get to it!
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!
