Insight from Rob Labritz on Backswing.com:

It starts from 15 yards off the front of the green

Posted on: 28 Feb 2022

Green reading is an art and it starts before you stand on the surface of the green. If you are riding in a cart and approach the green from the side where the cart path takes you then you are dong yourself a disservice. Try walking to the green from the front and take notice […]

Open face, closed face

Posted on: 02 Feb 2022

Change your set up for each shot. If you are trying to fade a ball (for a right handed golfer) aim left and make sure that the club face stays open at impact. This will allow the ball to cut. And if you are trying to draw the ball then aim right and make sure […]

Spend a majority of the time on the course (and practice your short game)

Posted on: 06 Jan 2021

Since GlenArbor is a seasonal club with a winter teaching facility, most of my students time is spent on mechanics in the winter. During the spring, summer and fall the majority of my time with them is spent on the golf course and short game area! Students need to learn how to navigate different conditions, […]

Magic Pill!

Actually playing the PGA Championship at Harding Park

Posted on: 07 Aug 2020

This is my 7th PGA Championship. The golf course is set up beautifully! The rough is long and fairways are narrow! With the wind blowing and the marine layer it feels like fall to winter golf. A premium is put on your drive to have access to the hole locations. With no fans it’s a […]

Jitters on the first tee; EMBRACE IT!

Posted on: 15 May 2020

I’ve been fortunate enough in my lifetime to play in six PGA Championships, ranging from 2002 to 2019. I have made it to the weekend in two of those times but most importantly I have hit the first tee ball in the first group off the first hole in 2013 and 2019 to open each […]

Dig it out of the dirt!

Posted on: 03 Mar 2020

Both of those devises are an important part of learning. For coaches they are a valuable asset and tool. For golfers they are fun and provide feedback. A golfer must practice and let the club and turf give you feedback first and foremost. You have to dig it out of the turf to figure it […]

Totally! It shows diversity and that it’s a global game which makes it more appealing to many more people. “Grow the game”

I run them through a performance evaluation.

Posted on: 07 Nov 2019

I run them through a performance evaluation. Mostly TPI with my own spin and of course ask many questions about their current fitness level and level of training.
