Clubs should fit like shoes

Posted on: 17 May 2022

There is no one shoe size fits all and no two swings are the same so clubs should fit the individual golfer. Drivers, fairway metals, hybrids, irons, wedges and putters all can be individually fitted to match the technique and skills the player has also helping greatly with performance . I have my own club […]

Idiosyncrasies champion

Posted on: 09 May 2022

Stick the finish

Posted on: 28 Apr 2022

Like Gymnasts who get deductions for not sticking the finish so should golfers. I call it your destination a place to end. Stick the finish! I had much success teaching with starting golfers to begin in the finish. Place them in a perfect finish then go back and return to the perfect finish. This taught […]

Keep your head down, not!

Posted on: 25 Feb 2022

Keep your head down is very restrictive, that advice inhibits the free flowing of the arms and hands into the follow thru creating a middle of the swing.

Are you ready when you step up to the ball? Imagine when You are on that stage (first tee) the curtain goes up are you depending on Luck or do you have the feeling of certainty? Address is not a position, you should be moving all the time, there should be no absolute still time. […]

Getting ready for higher swing speeds.

Posted on: 01 Apr 2021

To be well prepared to swing a driver long irons and hybrids at the club speed they need you should have an “athletic readiness” set up. Example a wider stance for balance, a solid posture position, bend from the waist and slight knee bend to activate or engage your trail foot speed, leg action and […]

In deep around greens

Posted on: 10 Mar 2021

Some grass is going to get caught on the way to the ball by the clubhead. Use a Sand wedge with lots of bounce. Don’t try to hit the ball, hit one ball width behind it, slide the club underneath the ball, keeping the clubface facing skyward after impact.
