The Foundations of a Golf Swing

Posted on: 09 May 2022

Whenever I meet a student for the first time, I put them through a swing assessment test. This test includes a handful of swings made with a 9-iron, 7-iron and 5 iron/hybrid. This allows me to get a better understanding of how the player swings the club throughout the bag. Some players have the same […]

Hands down winner for me!

Posted on: 22 Feb 2021

My favorite hole that I have played is easily hole #4 at Bethpage State Park Black Course. Even though this hole only measures 517 yards from the back tee, the challenges lay throughout the hole. Bunkers down the left hand side force a player to hit the fairway. Any player who bails out to the […]

Seeing is believing!

Posted on: 04 Feb 2021

For me, my favorite putting aid is the EyeLine putting mirror. I’ve used the small version and currently have the new groove model in my bag. I use this mirror before every tournament round as well as every practice session. It’s simple to set up and hits multiple putting facets all in one. I place […]

Focus on your finish

Posted on: 08 Oct 2020

A lot of players think or try too hard to make the club come into the ball on a downward angle of attack. One of the main faults that I see a lot from my students who flip is an improper finish position. Players who tend to “scoop” the ball at impact tend to hang […]

Embrace Those Nerves, Come Prepared!

Posted on: 15 May 2020

It doesn’t matter whether it’s the first hole with your buddies or the first hole of the Ryder Cup, everyone has nerves. What we do with those nerves can have a big impact on not only the first tee but a good chunk of the round. The best way to make sure that you’re ready […]

It is a positive sign of where the game is and the direction that the game is going.

Posted on: 11 Jan 2020

I would say that the variety of winners on tour is a good thing. It is a positive sign of where the game is and the direction that the game is going. The quality of players coming up through the mini tours and college is getting better and better every season. Tiger raised the bar […]

Golf instruction is not limited to the physical game. The mental game is equally if not more important than the physical.

Posted on: 11 Sep 2019

Golf instruction is not limited to the physical game. The mental game is equally if not more important than the physical. Dr. Bob Rotella is one of the leading sport psychologists in the game. He has worked with a number of tour professionals and has written multiple books. “Golf is Not a Game of Perfect” […]

In general, only the player themselves can determine when it's time to change grips.

Posted on: 14 Aug 2019

I’m sure everyone has heard how often tour pros get their clubs re-gripped? Some tour pros do it as often as every new event. This is a bit of overkill, but they do appreciate the feeling of fresh grips at the start of every event. Unfortunately, most of us do not have the resources to […]

Whichever one puts the ball in the hole in the least putts possible

Posted on: 01 Aug 2019

Easiest answer, whichever one puts the ball in the hole in the least putts possible. Putters are unique to each individual. I myself prefer a firmer feeling putter, it gives me a good feedback off the face. I’ve used both blade and mallet style putters and have found success with both styles. If you have […]

When around the green I like to follow a simple 3 question approach

Posted on: 01 Aug 2019

When around the green I like to follow a simple 3 question approach. Question 1) Can I putt it? (A poor putt will always turn out better than a poor chip) Question 2) If I can’t putt, how low can I keep the ball and have the results still turn out for the better? (If […]
