Practice Your Chipping

Practice Your Chipping… improve your golf scores the easy way … and fast.

Here is a quick, under two minutes, video with Bobby Eldridge, head pro at PurePoint Golf, with a method to practice your chipping.

Bobby has just finished playing in a pro-am and his amateur playing partners had skulled their chip shots numerous times. I don`t know if you are plagued with this problem but many amateur golfers have this affliction and it can be quite frustrating.

In the video, Bobby shows us how to take a good chipping set up. He shows us how to get our weight forward in our stance, how to execute the proper take away and what the follow through should look like.

This set up, take away and follow through allows us to hit a crisp chip every time and prevent those dreaded skulls.

I`m sure you will find this method will be very helpful as you practice your chipping.

As usual, Bobby does an excellent job of explaining the problem and the cure.

I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you practice your chipping. As always, I welcome your comments!

Play Smart Golf

Play Smart Golf… Learn To Save Stokes

Playing Smart Saves Strokes

Even players who thrive on crushing the ball know that hitting it long isn’t always the best strategy. Sometimes, they need to hang back and save that muscle for another time. We call it playing smart. Jack Nicklaus was a great example of a player who plays smart. He knew when to take what the situation gives him. That’s one reason why he was one of the world’s best golfers. For weekend golfers, playing smart can save strokes and keep your golf handicap from ballooning.

But playing smart isn’t always the first thing on your mind when in trouble. Many golfers try “miracle shots” to salvage the situation when in trouble. Often, it’s a shot they’ve never hit before. Save miracle shots for when you must try one. The rest of the time, play smart. It may not seem like the best strategy, but it can save you strokes later on. In my golf lessons I emphasize three situations when playing smart works well. Below I describe these situations and provide golf tips on how to play them.

Ball In High Grass

When we say high grass, we mean high grass—the no man’s land of rough. You know the kind—where you could be standing over the ball and not know it. The problem with this rough is that it’s much thicker than regular rough. It’s so thick it can catch your club and turn the hosel before the clubface is even close to the ball. Thus, it may take multiple shots to get out. It’s that thick.

The only remedy for this lie is to take your wedge and attack the ball with a hard descending blow. But first you need to adjust your set up using these golf tips: Use an open stance but close the clubface a bit. Next, take a firm grip, aim just behind the ball, and swing down hard. These adjustments make it easier for the clubface to cut through the grass. Make sure, you also swing through—because if your club gets stuck, the ball will, too.

Ball In Bunker

While a ball buried deep in the sand requires a shot like the one described above, a regular lie in the sand—one where the ball is sitting on top of the sand—needs just the opposite approach. The goal here is to “shave” the ball out, not shovel it. Here, you need to take a smooth controlled swing with an open stance and clubface. Aim to make contact two inches behind the ball. It will fly out softly with minimal sand, saving you strokes and landing the ball close to the pin.

Playing The Punch Shot

The punch shot is a third play smart situation. The object of the punch shot is to keep the ball low, straight, and precise. It makes for a great approach shot in the wind. But it also makes for a great shot to salvage par from the trees. Many players use a longer iron to make this shot, but a hybrid works just as well, as I’ve mentioned in my golf tips newsletter. Here’s how to make a punch shot work for you:

Play the ball just back of the middle of your stance, which takes some loft off your club and enables the ball to fly lower with backspin. Take a three-quarter swing, mostly with your arms, and keep your wrists firm and hands quiet on the downswing. Make a smooth controlled swing, with out decelerating or hurrying through the shot, and keep your follow through short and low. The punch shot is a great weapon to have when in trouble or when playing in a stiff wind.

These three common “play smart” situations are often discussed in golf instruction session and golf articles. There are more not so common play smart shots. Look for them and then store them in your mind so you’ll remember them. In these situations, forget the “miracle shot” you’ve never hit before unless you’ve no other choice. Playing smart helps keep a lid on scores and stops golf handicaps from ballooning.

Perfect Golf Swing

Most every golfer is in pursuit of the “perfect golf swing”. Well, I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is most of us are unable to physically produce the “perfect golf swing” time after time, even if there is a perfect golf swing. The good news is that there is a method called the “Simple Golf Swing” that will allow “everyone”, whether they are a high or low handicapper, to build a simple golf swing to improve their golf game significantly and immediately!

The best part is that, since this is a system, you will be able to pick up your golf club, and if you follow the advice given, you’ll be hitting crisp, solid shots with great accuracy. You’ll have a completely new swing, and it will be simple and repeatable.

There are only 5 steps to “The Simple Golf Swing”. After you have learned and practiced each one of them, you’ll be hitting great shots… five (5) steps – that’s it. The five (5) fundamentals that will transform your game.

Here are the five (5) fundementals:

(1)The Set Up: The process for “setting up” a simple golf swing puts you in a position to go through the five steps of the golf swing, and come back to the starting position with power and control. The
combination of power and control is what every golfer strives for, and it all starts with a sound and repeatable set-up.

(2)The Mechanics of the Setup: The “Simple Golf Swing” methods to building a repeatable golf swing.

(3)The Grip: It’s important that you realize that your grip will affect the results that you get.

(3)Alignment: Good alignment will come with practice. “The Simple Golf Swing” system will dramatically improve your alignment.

(5)Timing: Most books on golf instruction go into great detail trying to describe the aspect of timing and transition. “Simple Golf Swing” does not do that because they are writing the book to simplify your swing, not complicate it.

There they are… the five (5) fundementals of the “Simple Golf Swing”. I can personally attest that The Simple Golf Swing will help you to build a repeatable golf swing. I am a student of the Simple Golf Swing and have that it has given me a foundation to create a golf swing swing that I can repeat.

I have been a low handicap golfer for a long time… way too long… and this system has given me a plan for completing the entire golf swing from start to finish.

Obviously, having a plan is a good thing and has allowed me… and will do the same for you… to improve my golf game by keeping my swing consistent.

Needless to say, I personally endorse the “Simple Golf Swing”. It may not give you the perfect golf swing but it will give you a fundementally sound… repeatable… golf swing that will make you ecstatic and your playing partners jealous.

Moe Norman Golf Instruction Review

Murray Irwin “Moe” Norman (July 10, 1929 – September 4, 2004) was a Canadian professional golfer. He was widely considered the best ball striker who ever lived. His accuracy, his ability to hit shot after shot perfectly straight, gave him the nickname “pipeline moe”.

Moe Norman golf instruction review… here`s a video of Moe`s golf swing. As you will see it is very different but got great results.

Moe Norman Golf Instruction Review

Below are some of Moe’s gems for hitting the ball with accuracy.

“Quiet hands through the swing. ‘Fingers are fast, fingers are fast, palms are calm, palms are calm.’ Moe said to hold the club in the palms of your hands, not in the fingers.

“Wide stance. He [keeps] his feet on the ground as long as possible, thereby ensuring the clubhead will travel as far along the line as possible and not turn over. Moe wants the sensation of the ball on the clubhead all the way through impact. His feet roll, but they do not lift.” Schiffman’s note: This reminds me of what Jack Grout taught a young Jack Nicklaus. For the first year of Nicklaus’ golfing life, Grout had him roll his ankles back and through. Only later did he lift his left heel off the ground.

“Ball position. Moe plays the ball off his left heel because he’s thinking of tearing through it and down the target line. He puts the club 14 inches behind the ball.

“Downswing. Moe begins his downswing with a move of his left knee forward, still keeping his feet flat on the ground. His arms drop into the ‘slot,’ all of 21 inches, as Moe says. His knees separate as his left knee moves forward. He appears to be squatting slightly to the ball, as Sam Snead did. At the same time, he has created clubhead lag. “Impact. Moe creates an extremely long ‘flat spot’ at the bottom of his swing. Moe feels his hands are still square to the target 22 inches past the ball.”

Modern Golf Swing Technique

There is a term that commentators on television will often say. He came, or she came, up and out of the shot. When you hear that, it usually means that the ball has gone to the right.

So, let me tell you an example of what ‘up and out of the shot’ means, and then I’ll give you a golf technique that you can use for your own golf game.

In the downswing, both knees stay bent during the bottom of the hit. And as the golf club passes you, the arms have to get out in front of you before you can turn through.

Now, here’s an example of a player that comes up and out of the shot. As they start down, they get out in front and their body unwinds. And they get tall in the hitting area and the spine comes up and you’ll see a push to the right.

So, here’s the golf technique. If you push to the right and you think there’s a chance that you may be coming up and out of your shot, you’ll hit it weak to the right.

A great little practice is for you to keep a little more weight on your right side and let the arms pass you before you turn through.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Boost Your Energy With Smart Golf Nutrition

Maintaining your energy while playing is critical. A sharp drop in energy makes you feel tired, listless, and confused. That can cost strokes and can turn a good round into a bad. Eating the right snacks during a round helps. In addition to being good for you, they boost your energy level and increase your concentration. But you need to carry the right snacks with you.

Below Are 6 Good Snacks For Golfers:

1. Peanuts (or seeds)
2. Beef jerky
3. String cheese
4. Small apple
5. Home popped popcorn
6. Low carb bars

The key to maintaining your energy level while golfing is controlling blood sugar. That means avoiding foods made with refined carbohydrates (things made with white flour and/or sugars). Eating foods load with carbs causes your blood sugar to rise sharply, so you feel alert and energetic

But after awhile, your body adjusts and your blood sugar drops. So does your energy. Suddenly, you don’t feel as alert or as energetic as you did before. Instead, you feel tired, irritable, and confused. The carbohydrates are backfiring, causing your blood sugar to tank.

Eating the right snacks, however, levels off your blood sugar and boosts energy. Good snacks contain no refined flour, sugar, or trans fats. Trans fats are found in food made with hydrogenated oil, processed foods, and shortening, which is used in all most all baked goods. Snacks like peanuts or sunflower seeds, beef jerky, or string cheese provide a quick boost of energy during a round. Low carb bars do, too. But avoid them if they’re made with hydrogenated oil.

Planning ahead also helps maintain blood sugar. Eat a balanced portion of protein and fat before playing. Add some carbohydrates in the form of whole foods—whole grains, vegetables, or fruit—and you’re good to go. This combination stabilizes your blood sugar and energy levels as well. When combined with snacks, the combination is the right way to go.

Improve Your Golf Swing

Improve Your Golf Swing… steps to get into proper golf stance

Proper Golf Stance 

Proper golf stance is critical to hitting the ball solid. The more your back is curved at address, the more likely you’ll lift up to hit the ball. Lifting up prevents you from hitting the ball with authority. It also robs you of power. Keeping your back straight, on the other hand, promotes consistent contact.

5 Steps To Attaining Proper Golf Stance

1. Stand tall with feet spread apart
2. Hold the club in front of you
3. Bend forward at the hips
4. Flex your knees
5. Stick out your butt

Standing up straight helps maintain balance, a key factor in a good swing. In fact, it’s better to stand too tall than to slouch. Start by standing up straight with the inside of your feet shoulder width apart. Balance your weight on the balls of your feet. And turn your toes out slightly.

Next, hold the club out in front of you. Bend forward from the hips until the club touches the ground. Your back should remain straight. Flex your knees a bit and stick your butt out slightly. Sticking your butt out helps balance you when you bend forward. Try keeping your back straight throughout your swing.

Your quadriceps, the muscles on the front and outside portion of your thighs, supports your swing. To strengthen them, put your back against the wall and slowly lower yourself into a sitting position. Stay there for a few seconds or until your thighs begin to burn. Then push up slowly until your standing. Do this exercise a few times a day and you’ll build those muscles up.

Assuming the proper golf stance is critical to achieving a good swing. Slouching or slumping prevents your making solid contact and robs you of power. Follow the five-step process discussed above you to attain proper golf stance to improve your golf swing every time.
