Chuck Evans at Impact

In this webinar I discuss “What is the transition?”

Here is the definition according to the Dictionary:  movement, passage, or change from one position, state, stage,subject, concept, etc., to another; change:

Chuck Evans at Impact

The transition is that moment of time from backswing to the start of downswing.  Add in wrist angles and you’ve got it made!

The downswing transition, for good players, happens before the club finishes the backswing and starts from the ground up.  The sequence is normally feet, knees, hips, shoulders, arms and finally club.

When done properly, this sequence can generate all of the stored power you have accumulated!

In this webinar I give you some drills, and “feels,” that you can use to train this sequence and build a powerful transition.

In this webinar I talk about the 3 types of lag, how they are beneficial to each other and how they all 3 MUST work together!

nolag

First we have Pivot Lag.

The body must have the correct sequencing of feet, knees, hips and shoulders to produce a powerful pivot.

Secondly we have Power Source Lag.  Again, there is a sequence that if disrupted, creates a weak powerless swing.

And finally we have Clubhead Lag.  When players ask “How do I increase my lag,” this is the one they are talking about.  However, without the other two, clubhead lag can be “artificial” if not done correctly.

Enjoy the video and if you have any questions be sure to drop me a line.

 

 

We all have them, some more than others.  They even happen to the world’s best players on occasion!

Power leaks.  What are they and how can you plug those holes.

Let me explain.

Power “leakage” comes from a variety of reasons.  The club head passing the hands before impact, hanging back at Impact, missing the sweetspot and many other misconceptions.  If the golfer KNOWS and UNDERSTANDS what these are then generally they can plug the holes themselves.  But without knowledge most golfers will struggle with distance.

In this weeks webinar we discuss some of the most common causes for power leaks and how to fix them.

We use these drills every day here at our Academies with our lessons and with our Junior golf programs.

Once again we had a lot of great questions from our viewers and would love to answer yours!  Just shoot us an email with your questions and we will happy to address them for you.

If you are happy with your full swing, or don’t want to change it, we can show you how to lower your score by 7-10 shots.  We are giving away a free report and all you have to do is CLICK  HERE!

One of our viewers sent in a suggestion, for a topic, about how to get the sweetspot flattened in the downswing.

While a lot of golf instructors will say there is no such thing as the “Swing Plane”, there IS a Sweet Spot Plane!

But, if you are a golfer that likes to use the term “swing plane”, and you get the results you want, then USE IT!

But, if the “swing plane” image doesn’t work for you, then…don’t use use it!

Pretty simple!

You can almost anything you’d like, with ANY thought or ANY terminology as long as it produces what you want!

In this webinar, I discuss a couple of drills to help you get the sweetspot “on plane” in the downswing.  We start off though, with a few tips for those of us that are NOT as flexible as we once were!

Short Game Shots – Where’s The Flag?

In this webinar I discuss strategies for short game shots that are determined by where the flag is.

The 3 basic locations are front, middle and back.  Of course, each of these could be center, left, or right as well.  During the webinar though I talk about all center locations.

The general rule however is that if the flag is front hit a higher shot behind the flag.  Hitting to a center flag is a mid trajectory, and a back flag a lower trajectory.

When hitting your highest shot try and carry the ball 2/3 of the way to the hole.  For a mid-trajectory fly it 1/2 way and for the lowest trajectory fly it 1/3 of the way.

I see lots of amateurs trying to fly the ball all the way to the flag when the pin is back.

Typically, higher handicap players under club on every shot so generally that won’t hurt them.  But for the better player, I would advise taking the club that you CANNOT hit over the green!

When the pins are tucked I would advise hitting to the center of the green.  This strategy allows for pulls and pushes, and if you hit one of those you should still be on the green somewhere with a chance to make a putt!

We all hear about the “fundamentals” in golf but what are they?

In this webinar I discuss things that matter and how to find YOUR fundamentals for the basics.

ALL golfers need to be consistent with the club path and hit the ball in the sweetspot (center) of the clubface! The club face and WHERE you hit it on the face are the primary causes for the majority of missed shots.  Face to path relationships determine curvature of the golf ball…if any.

But what is the MAIN objective of golf?

Get the ball in the hole with the least amount of strokes!  Not rocket science, and great “technique” alone is but one piece of the puzzle.

 

If you are serious about your game contact us.

Contact Chuck to schedule your time.

 

In almost every round of golf we all face this situation…an uneven lie.

The ball gets above or below our feet, or we have an uphill or downhill lie.  The key to these shots is to FIRST make the lie…EVEN!

When the ball is above/below the feet it not only changes the players posture, but we need to make adjustments to the clubshaft angle as well.  When the ball is uphill or downhill, again, we first need to adjust our posture to the hill by aligning our body to the slope.  The next adjustment is to position the ball closer to the higher foot.

In this webinar I discuss how to make these adjustments and turn uneven lies into even lies.

 

Thanks for all of the great questions…keep ’em coming!

Distance or Accuracy, which comes first?

That’s the subject of this weeks webinar.

Kinda like the old chicken or egg argument.

We teach our players power first.  Once they can bomb it, we then work on the accuracy.

There are certain combinations that work together, and some that don’t!

Short AND crooked just isn’t in your best interest…LONG and crooked is though!

If you look at today’s best players, for the most part, they bomb it!  If they miss a fairway, they usually have a short iron or wedge into the green.

Look at the short hitters though.  If they hit in the rough they have to take a mid or long iron to advance the ball.

Which would YOU rather be!

Personally, I’ll take long and a little crooked anytime!

We are completely redesigning the website here at Chuck Evans Golf and hope to have it ready to go in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, you can still access our videos, articles and all of our other great content.

In this webinar we discuss some different pitching techniques and drills to help lower your scores.

As we have said many times, the simplest way to vary your pitching distances is to change the shaft angle at Impact and then vary the locations of the club on the exit .  Watch this video for more information.

In this weeks webinar we discuss the difference between the face and path and how to adjust those to your game.

It has been said that the “new” Ball Flights are quite different than the “old” ones.

Not so quick there bucko!

Dr Gary Wiren, who wrote the PGA Teaching Manual, stated that the primary starting direction of the golf ball is influenced by the clubFACE!  Oh, how true!

[pullquote]Here is his quote, It is quite clear that the element that indicates the starting line of the golf ball and the one having the most influence on its direction is the clubface.[/pullquote]

Yet, many of today’s instructors seem to have overlooked what he wrote and/or misread, misunderstood the words.  In any case, the golf ball will start where the clubface is looking at Impact and then curve AWAY from the path of the swing.

The higher the swing speed the larger percentage applies to the clubface.  So, a Driver may reach 85% whereas a wedge will get close to 50%

Here is the latest webinar replay.  Watch as we discuss how to hit fades, draws, and lob shots.

(Shout out to Rayl Evans…he may be the best at hitting those lob/bunker shots I’ve ever seen!)

If you know how to set up your lines, where you want the ball to end up, where you want the ball to start and what kind of curve you want…then controlling the golf ball is fairly simple!

RIGHT! …It sounds simple but it does take practice!

In this webinar I will show you how to set up your practice station to work on curving the ball the way YOU want!

We again, had great questions.  If you have a subject you’d like for us to discuss just shoot me an email.

This week we discuss the power sources in golf and who doesn’t want to create more power…and hit it farther!

The answer is, we ALL do!  While there are 4 “actions” that are used to create power, there are also different body segments (joints) that create acceleration.  These two go hand in hand and if you know what they are, and get them in the correct sequence, you…

WILL HAVE MORE POWER!

We had some great, questions, as usual and I want to give a shout to “Bill” for his comment about being a great webinar…thank you Bill!

In this webinar we discuss how to practice golf when you are snowbound.

Some of you are stuck in the snow, and cold weather right about now, but that shouldn’t stop you from practicing your golf swing.

Here are some very simple drills that can help you keep your golf swing in shape without hitting golf balls.  Of course, if you have a space to hit shots that would be even better!  But when hitting shots I would suggest doing so in slow motion, and watching in the mirror, to make sure you are doing what you are trying to do.  You do not want to spend the winter building bad habits!

If you absolutely want to get out of the cold, come on down to Arizona and let’s work together on your game!

If you watch the best players in the world, they ALL have a pre-shot!

The pre-shot is a “ritual” they go through prior to every shot.  It starts from a point behind the golf ball.  They pick a start line, walk to the side of the ball, address the ball while making some sort of “practice” move then fire away!

ALL players use this procedure and some are more complicated than others.

Listen in as I discuss, in this weeks webinar, some of the finer details of the pre-shot and how you can implement in your game.

It seems that are a LOT of things that come in 3’s for the golf swing.  So here goes,

“Three Things You Should Know About Your Golf Swing”

In this webinar I discuss the 3 most important pieces, and what to look for in your golf swing.

  1.  What is the ball doing
  2.  What is the club doing
  3.  What is the body doing

We had great questions again, and want to thank everyone for theirs.  If you have topic suggestions just shoot me an email and I’ll do my best to get to it.

If you are in a part of the country that is cold, then maybe you need to get down to the desert!  Contact us for more information on transforming your game!

In this weeks webinar I discuss the use of the body arms and hands in the golf swing.

While they are all separate, the must work synchronous to produce solid shots.  When working together, it also provides balance and rhythm to your golf swing.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

 

Does your game need a little “fine-tuning?”  Come out to the desert and let’s get it on track!

vadar lives

In this weeks webinar, we go back and review the top 10 questions asked during 2015.

For those Star Wars Fans, it is also opening day of the “Force Awakens.”  According to all reports this could be the biggest opening weekend in movie history! EDIT – (The movie grossed over $57M opening day – a new record!)

This is our final webinar for 2015 so we thought it would be great to go back through the year, mark down all of the questions asked, and then compile a list of the top 10.  These 10 questions were by far the most asked during the year and we thought we would have a little fun with final webinar.

Grab your favorite beverage, sit back and enjoy!

If you have any questions just shoot us an email.

And finally , we want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

In this weeks webinar we discuss how to work the golf ball.

Working the golf ball consists of two elements,  controlling the club face and controlling the club path.  These are two separate elements of the golf swing that the player should be competent in.

The basic rule of thumb is, the ball curves away from the path.

So for right-handers, this means that if you want to hit a draw you aim your club face to the right of target, and the club path would farther right than the face.

For a fade you would simply do the opposite.

When hitting approach shots, in the ideal situation, you need to know how to work the golf ball toward the hole.  Again, a basic rule is to NEVER start the ball outside the edge of the green.

We had some great questions, listen in as we discuss.

scoring zone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this webinar we talk about scoring zone shots.

What exactly is the scoring zone?  The scoring zone is basically using your wedge and putter.

For some, that may be 100 yards and in. But for Tour players it can reach all the way up 150 yards.  The biggest thing to remember is that wedges are NOT used for distance but rather for accuracy!

If you look at PGA Tour stats you will see a category named, “Proximity to hole.”  This stat covers all distances but the one you want to study is from 100 yards and in.

Want to shoot lower scores?  Work on your scoring zone!
