In reviewing the videos that I have been receiving, I am noticing that many problems are coming in the take away. In the video below, I explain how to correct these issues. Watch the video carefully and spend time "handing the club back" for about 15 minutes. If you are unable to practice in front of a mirror, take a video or simply observe your shadow.
Follow up with the Tempo Drill for another 15 minutes. In time, your full swing will be different.
Putting can make or break your score on the course, yet somehow we neglect to practice when it is the easiest skill to practice even on a rainy day. As mentioned before no store bought equipment is needed. Actually, it is more fun when you use your imagination to set up targets and create games. I saw a video of two boys in a two story house who engineered a crazy obstacle course based on putting. It is so important to keep the fun in the practice.
In the video below, I show you how to use 5 golf balls to create a game that you can play solo or with others. Have fun!!
Don't have a putter? No problem, you can use a broom, putting is a lot like sweeping. One of those long umbrellas will work too. Get creative!!
By far the easiest golf skill to practice at home is putting. I know some of my students have a putting green that they purchased but the reality is you can putt on your carpet or your bare floors. The key is set up a target which can be an empty cup or the leg of your kitchen table. Get creative!!
As you do be mindful of your wrists. In the video below, I illustrate how to avoid flipping your wrists in the putting stroke.
Let me know how it works out. Keep sending your videos.
Last week, I showed you how to set up buckets in your backyard to practice your short game. If your natural tendency is to practice with a square face, try switching it up and practice with an open face and vice versa. It is important to become skilled using both because you never know where your ball will land on the golf course.
Let me know if you have any questions and please keep sending your videos.
If you are like most golfers, you enjoy going to the driving range to practice your drive and your long shots, but the reality is that the game is won with the short game. When Brooks Koepka visited with some of my juniors at Okeeheelee Golf Course on March 17, 2018 he shared that he spends most of his time practicing his short game. Click here to hear what he said.
In the video below I show you how to set up some buckets in your backyard and use this stay at home order to your advantage!
Please keep sending the videos. It is great to see you all continuing to progress. I am also very appreciative of the kind thoughts that you are sharing.
