  1. Direction of divot

    My divots are normally off to the left to my target line. M y ball flight usually travels fairly straight with the low irons. but with my long hybrids and fairway woods they have a long fade.ssssssssssss
    Should all my divots be in line with my aim and target line?

  4. Getting worse

    I am 68 now. And my golf is getting worse. Not as you might think. I can hit the ball further than ever before. But my accuracy has got terrible. This is from the approach shot, the pitch around the green and the putting! Is there anywhere on this site where a video clip of swing could be uploaded?

  5. A Neck Stretch to Help Your Golf Swing

    One of the most common complaints, after back tightness and stiffness, amongst the new golfers I train is “neck aches and pains...”

    Most people find it a shock to learn how many golfers suffer from neck issues - but the truth is, the golf swing is a VERY demanding motion - and the neck gets a fair share of ‘physical force’...

    Add to that - various types of stress and tension - and then the element of poor flexibility and ‘sub-par’ conditioning... It becomes very easy ...

  6. Golf Workouts: How Much, How Often?

    Fitness training for the golfer is not the same as a general workout program for the average person. Sure, there may be some similarities between the two - but the ideal exercise program for the improvement of your golf performance should have it’s own structure and emphasis.

    Two of the most important factors to consider are training volume and frequency.

    Training volume is the amount of exercise performed in one session. Training frequency is the number workouts in ...
  7. Approach from Rough



    Before you decide how you want to play an approach to a green from the rough, you first have to decide how severe the lie is. Here are a few tips on playing from the rough based on how deep the rough is:

    Light Rough: This is actually the preference of some amateurs. The tight lies in fairways require more precision and a descending angle of attack to hit an approach close. ...
  8. Punch Shot

    The punch is a shot that golfers can pull out in a variety of situations. If you have it in the arsenal and are confident hitting it, you can hit piercing shots into a headwind, navigate under tree limbs when in trouble, and have a go to shot when distance control in paramount. Follow these steps to hit great punch shots:

    • At address, choke up on the grip and place more weight on your lead side. Set your hands slightly ahead of the ball, which will deloft the club and promote ...
  9. Ball First Impact



    Most fat shots are the result of scooping. The goal for those that struggle with the fat shot should be to start their divot just after the ball. If the divot starts past the ball, the clubhead is traveling into impact at a descending angle of attack, the shaft is going to lean slightly towards the target, and the club will make clean contact with the ball. All of these are the ideal impact conditions ...
  10. Impact Pose



    The Impact Drill is designed to train players to feel correct impact. There are plenty of misconceptions about what impact should look like and this drill should provide a bit more clarity. If you are struggling with fat or thin shots, this drill can improve your contact.

    In the drill, instead of starting your swing from the regular setup positions, you mimic impact at address. ...
