Setup Your Chip Shots

One way to take strokes off your golf game is to improve your chipping. A chip shot is a shot near the green that pops into the air briefly before rolling towards the hole. The setup and stroke are both important for this shot. Read more...

Tension in the hands and forearms is a big problem in the golf swing and it can rob you of distance. Many golfers start off with a soft grip when they’re at the address position but do not maintain this grip pressure throughout the swing. Read more...

Reduce 3 Putts

One way to lower your golf score is to work on putting. Those 3 putts can sneak up on you and ruin your game, if you let them. Focus on distance control. Distance control is more important than direction because most 3 putts are caused by hitting the ball too short or too long. Also, distance helps control direction. Read more...

Get More Power our of Your Swing

Every golfer wants more power and distance from their shots. What most beginners don’t know and what seasoned players forget over time, is that it’s all in the hips. When the hips are turned it creates torque in the lower body, kind of like a rubber band. The best way to open the hips and harvest this power is to not think about the hips at all.  The secret is in thinking about the shoulders. Read more...

Increase Flexibility for Your Swing 

In the golf swing, power is generated by the combination of range of motion and strength. Most golfers emphasize muscle strengthening but a stronger muscle will become a tighter muscle if an appropriate stretching program is not included. Here are some quick and easy exercises to loosen up these areas. Read more...

Use Your Core Drill

True power and control comes from swinging the golf club with a powerful core. First, address the ball as you would with a golf club, only this time cross your arms across your chest. Second, simulate a backswing with your arms crossed. The key is to maintain the forward spine tilt and keep your back straight. At the top of your swing, your left shoulder (right for southpaws) will appear behind the ball. Now, drive that shoulder forward toward to the target so your left shoulder covers the ball and the right shoulder follows suit. Let your head turn with your body and rotate fully through the finish as far as you can go while staying in balance. Read more...
