Insight from Chris Rudi on Backswing.com:

Place a set of tee’s upside down , around a two foot circle. Putting up & down, try to lag everything in the circle. Putting on concrete will improve your touch. But wait…you will never be afraid of downhill putts again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Genuine beginners should start out with a simple set. 3 wood, 7, 9, pitch, putter. Work back from green to tee. If you set a realistic goal (par) for each player…could be anything from 36 to 86…keep them enthralled!!! Talk to your students about what they want to achieve…and guide them to their experiences and […]

Put the ball back in your stance. (For a right handed player)…off your right foot. Keep your weight 70% o n your front foot (left-foot for a right handed player). Do not just use a sand wedge. Pick the best club that will get the ball on the putting surface and roll it to the […]
Find a comfort zone!!!
Posted on: 18 May 2020
As a PGA PROFESSIONAL and a successful player…this is a difficult task. Any advice I give should be digested carefully. Think of positive experiences, playing great rounds, your best tee shot ever, or even the prettiest girl you ever kissed! If you immerse yourself in this, your jitters will recede. Pick the best club to […]
Keep it "SHORT" and simple...(KISS)!!!
Posted on: 22 Apr 2020
The short game is usually the first thing to go after the winter and a long layoff. Use your ingenuity to keep your hands, eyes, and body sharp. Practice chipping, pitching, and putting on your carpet to a coffee mug or a putting cup in your living room. You can even putt on your garage […]

I believe in the theory that swing length determines distance.
Posted on: 26 Feb 2020
I believe in the theory that swing length determines distance. If the lower body is allowed to rotate uninhibited and freely, length of the backswing length will dictate the amount of travel that the ball will carry. Ball position will also play into the final piece of the carry and rollout.
My favorite tour player right now is Dustin Johnson.
Posted on: 09 Dec 2019
My favorite tour player right now is Dustin Johnson. Not only is he an incredible athlete (supposedly a fantastic basketball player), but a self described gym rat. I know he hasn’t played since August, but sometimes time off does wonderful things (see Tiger). I love how he addresses his shortcomings, such as his wedge play, […]
It depends on the student
Posted on: 26 Sep 2019
Having been a PGA PROFESSIONAL for 20+ years, the answer for me is that it depends on the student. A serious player is yes, the more information regading launch angle, spin rate, path, swing speeds on all clubs, carry distance, etc., is extremely vital. For the majority of players, the answer is also yes!!! These […]

Next, seek out a reputable retailer, fitting center, or best of all a Class “A” PGA Professional with fitting experience. Talk to them about your questions and […]
