Bad Advice Makes You Hit the Middle of the Ball.

Posted on: 16 Dec 2021

After years of teaching new golfers, I have come to one conclusion. Bad advice runs rampant on the golf course and it causes new golfers more harm than good. I can’t tell you how many new golfers, especially ladies, come in to our learning center and look like the photo on the left. This is […]

Keep It Simple in Fairway Bunkers

Posted on: 27 Jan 2021

The art of hitting out of a fairway bunker isn’t “picking it clean”. It just takes the ability to hit the ball first. This is the same skill that you need to hit the ball off the fairway. This idea of “picking it clean” actually causes amateurs to do some interesting things that actually cause […]

How to play in the wind

Posted on: 24 Nov 2020

First of all, be patient. You have to take what the weather gives you. Realize that everyone is playing in the same conditions as you. Those who are patient and calm and think there way around will do fine. An example of this hitting a tee shot into the wind. Every ounce of you is […]

Sooner rather than later

Posted on: 28 Oct 2020

The answer to this question comes in two parts. First, if the player is not of normal size, they should be fit as soon as they can. A player who is too tall or too short or has any other physical issue should be fit ASAP so that they have the best chance to learn […]

Hit Down Easier

Posted on: 08 Oct 2020

I believe that the easiest way to hit down through the ball is to really understand weight shift. In order for you to hit down through the ball, the grip of the club has to be in front of the ball at the time of impact. This position is way to hard to get into […]

Easiest way to hit a draw

Posted on: 10 Sep 2020

The easiest way to hit a draw is to close the club face relative to the SWING PATH at impact. For most weekend golfers, this will result in a PULL DRAW where you would have to aim to the right of the target with your feet and body to get the ball to finish on […]

Riverdale Dunes in Brighton, CO

Posted on: 27 Aug 2020

I believe that Riverdale Dunes Golf Course in Brighton, CO is an incredible value. This Pete Dye designed course is always in amazing shape and is a great value. They host many Colorado tournaments and they are always on local “Best of” lists. I believe they even made a Golf Digest list at one point. […]

Distance Control Through Rhythm

Posted on: 20 Aug 2020

The single best way to reduce 3 putts is to have better speed control on all your putts. Consistent speed at the hole allows you to always have a short putt for your second. Good speed control also allows the ball to take the break near the hole in a consistent way. In fact, it […]

Analysis and virtual discussion

Posted on: 22 Apr 2020

Right now I’m not only obeying the stay at home order in Colorado, but we have 8 inches of snow in our yard so I can’t even swing outside. Because of this, I have had to get real creative with my online lessons. Here is how I lay them out; First I review videos from […]

A little leg work and patience can give you great answers

Posted on: 05 Mar 2020

Launch monitors exist to collect data that we could get on the course, if we were patient and diligent enough. When I saw this question, I assumed that it wasn’t going to be a bunch of golf coaches plugging other launch monitors besides the two listed above. Launch monitors exist to tell us how far […]

I hate to say it, but it depends on the player. Don’t worry, I’ll elaborate.

Posted on: 26 Feb 2020

I hate to say it, but it depends on the player. Don’t worry, I’ll elaborate. It depends on two things; time the player can put in and touch/feel/coordination. There are golfers out there that have a lot of time to practice, great facilities to practice at and the touch to see a distance and hit […]
