It’s all dangerous

Posted on: 22 Feb 2022

This is a loaded question, I’ve seen good advice of identifying what is wrong with a poor correction. I’ve also seen people trying to fix the effect not the cause a swing issues.

I’ve had two main mentors in golf Kevin Smeltz and Sean Foley

Posted on: 12 Jan 2022

Two very intelligent mentors with very different styles. Kevin is way more laid back and understated. Foley is more flashy and telling life lessons while instructing. Both have taught major champions and have been very successful instructors.

It’s an effect

Posted on: 19 Nov 2021

So in golf you normally have a fault and there is an error that breaks the chain down the line. A lot of the time people don’t make long term fixes since they are trying to change the effect not the cause. For example if I’m hitting it fat, it might be from a steep […]

It All Depends

Posted on: 20 Sep 2021

So, when it comes to decision making off the tee the goal should always be to hit the ball as far as possible while avoiding hazards. Most scratch golfers I coach will hit 3 wood off the tee only when driver distance will get them trouble or the shot shape with 3 word fits the […]

Yes and No

Posted on: 16 Aug 2021

This is one of those it depends answer. If you want to have a similar ball flight yes the path and face numbers should be similar. If you want to hit a different pattern it might change. Also the feel might be different but actually look the same. In a perfect world there shouldn’t be […]

At Least Stretch

Posted on: 03 Aug 2021

For my junior golfers looking to play college golf or my college players fitness in golf is not an option. I’m partnered with Vault Performance who help assess my players and build a plan for them. For my clients who have full time jobs and struggle to even get time playing golf. I want them […]

Yes You Can

Posted on: 26 Jul 2021

I 100% believe you can increase speed without losing accuracy. Most amateurs would be better served starting with better contact and face to path improvement. From there adding more speed will improve distance greatly.

Do it right and less often

Posted on: 28 Jun 2021

The biggest difference for am and juniors in club fitting is the amount of change a junior can go through. If you have a big clubhead speed increase or junior growth then you need new clubs and fitting. If not much has changed in your swing or game you can wait. The biggest issue most […]

Match Up Your Grip

Posted on: 28 May 2021

The grip is a very important part of the golf and instruction. The grip is your connection to the club and is important for controlling the club face. Grip changes should be made when 1- you can’t hinge or rotate the club due to your grip 2- your grip doesn’t match how your release 3 […]

Steep Top

Posted on: 10 May 2021

The dreaded steep top, that’s a shot where a player hits the top of the ball due to the swing direction being so left and steep (for a right handed golfer). The clubs low point ends up being well in front of the ball especially with longer clubs. A good way to fix or improve […]

Bryson Part 2

Posted on: 06 Apr 2021

I think he learned from his last trip to Augusta. He will be ready for the challenge and ready to win it.

Friction is the key

Posted on: 01 Apr 2021

Long story short friction is how we get a ball to spin on the green. You can increase friction by adding speed and not letting (water, grass or dirt) get in the way. You do this by having clean grooves and newer grooves. The technique to add spin is setting up fairly neutral hitting a […]
