Let the wind be your friend!

Posted on: 23 Nov 2020

In windy conditions, most amateurs try to fight the wind. They usually swing harder, it’s human nature. Into the wind, take more club and make a controlled 3/4 swing. You want less spin on the ball to cut thru the wind. Downwind you can hit it hard to get it up in the wind and […]

Rory!

Posted on: 09 Nov 2020

I like Rory McIlroy this week to complete the career grand slam. I feel with the Masters out of the traditional date some of the focus has been taken off of him in his quest to complete the career grand slam. Also with the course probably playing softer and longer I believe he will be […]

Clear out!

Posted on: 08 Oct 2020

In order to stay down and cover the ball with a downward blow, we must clear our lead side out of the way. Feel like your body is opening up to the target, only after you get the weight into your lead leg, hip joint.

How to spin it!

Posted on: 10 Sep 2020

To hit a draw the easiest way is to aim body to the right( for right hander) and pre-set club face pointing towards intended target. Then swing along body lines and the ball should curve. Move the ball back in the stance a bit to promote in to out motion. Be careful to give yourself […]

Warm up the engine!

First incorporate some sort of stretching routine before you venture out to hit some shots. I usually spend at least 15 minutes prior to swinging a club stretching. Once ready, start with some half wedges and then progress to longer clubs. Don’t make the mistake of jumping out of the car and reaching for the […]

I like to use a clock dial image to gauge distances.

Posted on: 26 Feb 2020

I like to use a clock dial image to gauge distances. I get stock yardages taking the club back with lead arm parallel to ground, 9 o’clock then a little more to 10 and up to what one would consider to be a full swing then accelerate through to finish. Basically 50%, 75% then full. […]

Find something that makes you feel confident when you look at it then get it fit to your needs.

Posted on: 19 Aug 2019

I have always felt that a player should choose something that is appealing to the eye first and foremost. All major manufacturers have good stuff and can provide proper specs after fitting. Find something that makes you feel confident when you look at it then get it fit to your needs. Keep in my that […]

TPC Sawgrass

Posted on: 07 Aug 2019

I would probably go with TPC Sawgrass. I really thought the course was an excellent test and had different ways to attack the course. I thought it might be overrated before I played it but it was not! The shot on 17 seems simple but with the added pressure of a Sunday and a firm […]
