Need help improving your game?
Do any of the following plague your golf game?
Does your ball start left and then slice back to the fairway or go way right? Does your divot always point to the left and sometimes do you pull your shots? Does your ball go high and leaks off to the right with little power? If so you probably have the clubface too “open” during your swing and no matter what you do you can never quite square it up at the ball so you have to “come over the top” on your downswing and pull the ball left so it can cut back to your target. If this sounds like you don’t worry, most golfers who have played for awhile get into this habit! The good news is it is very simple to adjust your clubface position and not only eliminate your slice but actually draw the ball! Don’t believe me? Then come and take one lesson with me and I will guarantee I can eliminate or reduce most of your slice in one lesson!
Are you a good player but seem “stuck” shooting around the same scores most of the time without any real improvement? Most players focus too much on their swing and not their short game and scoring. I bet there is a shot around the green that is bothering you and costing you several shots a round like sand play, 20-30 yard pitch, or an “in-between” wedge shot. There is a certain position that all great pitchers/chippers have that I will teach you, and you can practice it at home! Every great player keeps his/her hands ahead of the clubface during and after impact, that is the only way to gain consistency in how solid you chip/pitch the ball and the only way to really know how far your pitch/chip shot will go. I will show you how to “FEEL” this correct position and how to get there.
Is there a certain wedge distance like 60 yards that you are struggling with? If so I bet there is a distance that you really like and have confidence in. I will teach you a wedge game system similar to Short Game guru Dave Pelz that will help you learn 3 different distances that you will hit each of your wedges EXACTLY every time. No more guesswork or feel. Imagine playing a golf course that has no yardage markers or monuments?? Then how in the world can you play your best if you don’t know how far you hit your in between wedge shots? For instance these are the distances I hit my Lob wedge exactly: Full swing = 80 yards, 3/4 swing 70 yards, and 1/2 swing 60 yards (and if I choke up I hit the 1/2 swing exactly 52 yards). Now you just pace of the yardage you want to hit your wedge shot, (or I use a Bushnell range finder), and pick the appropriate club and the length of swing and presto, you will hit the ball pin high and save some serious strokes off your game!
Are you ever feel like you are “stuck” shooting the same scores or can’t break a certain score like 90, 80 or par? Do you play well at times during your round and then fall apart on 2-3 holes? Are you the guy after your round who says “take away the triple on #10 and the double on #5 and I would have broken 80 for the first time?” If you watch the pros play on TV or a really good player you might not notice it but they rarely ever make more than bogey. They have figured out that the “secret” to playing your best golf is “improving your bad shots so that they aren’t that bad”. What I try to do with each player is improve their mis hits, not improve their best hits! If you are blocking or pulling 2-3 tee shots every round into trouble, (or worse out of bounds), then we need to find out why your swing produces that shot from time to time and show you how to eliminate it and prescribe drills that will prevent it from seeping back into your game.
Why do I know so much about all of these problems?
