The most common injuries, or complaints, in golf are knees, hips, and back.
A LOT of players experience one of these injuries, or pain, during their golf careers. What if you could play pain free golf?
In this webinar we discuss how to play pain free golf and give you some options for continuing to play without that pain.
For years we have been helping players achieve their golfing goals by taking the tension and stress out of their game. If you have questions or comments just drop us a line.
We get asked a lot about what is the transition and what is the best way to start it. They answer is…it depends!
The transition in the golf swing is different for many players, although, it generally starts from the ground up. Picture a batter in the box waiting for a pitch.
As the pitcher starts to deliver the ball, the batter shifts their pressure from back to front trying to time their swing to the incoming pitch.
Golf is similar to hitting a baseball in that we too must shift pressure forward.
Watch this video and we will give you a few examples. We also answer a bunch of great questions this week!

The worlds best players have a grip that gives them the ball flight they want. Poor players have a grip that gives them a ball flight they DON’T want!
Everyone has a “neutral” grip and in this webinar, we show you how to find yours. Finding the grip that is best for you is very simple, but more than likely, will feel very uncomfortable!
One of the most difficult things to change, for a player, is their grip. They have used whatever they have for a period of time and any changes to it are hard to stay with. But if you want to change what your ball is doing I would suggest you watch the video.
We have some very exciting changes coming soon. If you want to be notified when they arrive just fill out the box to the right. We know you will love them!

We all have these days, some good, some not so good!
We’re standing on the tee and as we look out we see water on the right. Immediately we say to ourselves, “Don’t hit it right!”
Just like that we lose focus and we hit a poor shot and like a magnet, the ball is drawn to the water!
In this webinar, we show you WHY the ball goes in the water and more importantly how you can stop it!

In this episode we demonstrate our top 5 golf drills based on questions we get every week.
We use these drills on a daily basis, depending on the player issues, here giving golf lessons in Kansas City as well as our Junior Golf in Kansas City, and they have stood the test of time!
These drills include:
- how to hit the golf ball first and the ground second
- how to move pressure back and forth during the swing
- how to control your golf ball
- how to control the clubface
- how to generate speed
- how to stop early release
Enjoy these and let us know if you have any questions or what you would like for us to discuss in upcoming webinars.
We would love it if you share this with your golfing friends and as a little gift (bribe) we would like to send you our FREE Short Game Tips & Drills eBook.
If you are suffering from lack of distance, lack of control and not striking the ball solidly then this “Wedgucation” is for you! We’ll show you HOW to strengthen these areas and HOW to train this concept by using your wedges.
By design, the majority of golf clubs, when hit properly, have the grip end of the club in front of the club head at Impact. This allows the club to have the proper amount of loft. Good players sometimes decrease the loft by having the hands more forward, and poor players allow the club head to pass the hands at impact, thereby adding loft.
Hope you enjoyed this and if you have questions, please contact us.

In this weeks’ webinar we discuss Low Point as it relates to a golf swing. There are many misconceptions about Low Point and today we will try and clear up a few ideas for you.
Why is Low Point critical?
So, the clubhead has 3-dimensional motions. From the ‘overhead’ view the clubhead moves on an arc. From the ‘face on’ view the clubhead moves in a circle. And then there’s the DTL view.
To start, the proper 3-dimensional motion of the clubhead thru impact is known as ‘DOWN, OUT, and FORWARD.’
Repeat that again.
And the big part is that this is the motion THRU impact! The club does NOT stop at Impact, the “work is NOT done at Impact you MUST continue the motion down plane to the Lowest Point!
When looking at the Geometry of the Circle Diagram, you will see that a properly executed swing will have the ‘low point’ opposite of the golfer’s left shoulder. That means that if the swing is properly executed, the clubhead will reached its lowest point at a spot that is opposite of the golfer’s left shoulder. When we place the ball behind the low point, when we hit an iron we are supposed to hit the ball FIRST —- THEN take a divot. So much so that the divot winds up being IN FRONT of where the ball used to be.
In order to do this, the clubhead on the downswing comes down at the ball with a descending angle of attack. It then hits the ball and then goes DOWN even more.
We use this concept everyday with our Kansas City Junior Golfers, adults, and clinics during our lessons and golf schools.

You hear golfers everywhere say, “Time to let the big dog eat!”
What the heck does that mean? Generally when a player says that, they are referring to trying to hit the driver harder and hopefully farther!
Unfortunately, that is rarely the case!
In our coaching sessions, golf lessons, junior golf programs, and all of our golf instruction here in Kansas City, we strive to have our players learn to hit it hard and solid. After they can, we then work on direction. Don’t be afraid fo hitting it hard, we will help you with that.
Join us and learn how you can add more yardage, hit it solid and pump out some bigger drives.
We also answer questions from viewers and this week they had some great one! We do these webinars for you every week and encourage you to watch, ask questions and even submit what YOU would like us to talk about.
To learn how you can hit it farther and more solid schedule your time with us here in Kansas City.
In this weeks webinar we discuss effortless power vs. powerful effort when swinging a golf club.
A lot of players think that in order to produce more power they should lunge at the ball from the top of the backswing. This move, generally however, produces a slowing of the club which results in LESS power!
We offer some drills to help you gain speed and answer questions from the audience. Hope you enjoy!
Until next time, keep it in the short grass!
To learn how you can develop effortless power schedule your time with us now.
In this weeks webinar we discuss “Samenesses vs Differences.”
What does that mean?
ALL golfers grip the club – same, but they have different grip styles – difference. We ALL pivot our body in order to make a golf swing – same, but do it differently – differences.
You get the idea, we call these variations!
There are so many pieces and parts that make up a golf swing that there is NOT ONE way to do it. What works for one may not work for another.
Listen in as discuss and answer questions from the audience.
To find out what variation will work best for you schedule your time with us now.
Hopefully you watched this years PGA Championship and if you did you saw some great golf! This certainly was one of the best PGA’s in a very long time with all of the young guns battling it out for the trophy.
But after watching these guys bomb it every hole and hit incredible shots, what can we as mere mortals learn from them.
One of the biggest things we can learn is to stay focused and go through our pre-shot.
Jason and Jordan went through the same pre-shot each and every shot and in between rounds, on the practice tee, they went through their pre-shot as well. We are always telling our players to practice like you play. Just don’t rake balls over and continue pounding them without a process.
The pre-shot is actually a rehearsal of what you want to do.
SEE yourself making the swing you want. SEE the flight of the golf ball. SEE it landing where YOU want! If the average player would follow a pre-shot they might surprise themselves by hitting better golf shots.
Watch this weeks webinar as we discuss all this and more.
To learn how to incorporate this into your game schedule your time with us today!
In this webinar we discuss the 3 most important positions in golf. While these “positions” have numerous variations it is important for the player to know we define positions as being static. Impact, of course, is what it all boils down to. Controlling the clubface and clubhead determine initial start direction and curvature of the golf ball.

In this weeks webinar we discuss the level of committment to your golf game. In a recent interview Tiger Woods was asked why the changes he is working on are taking so long. To paraphrase he said, ” Everyone thinks that changes are immediate and shouldn’t take very long. In reality, they take a long time and players should not expect overnight results.“
After Tiger won his first Masters he and his coach at the time, Butch Harmon, worked on ONE specific item. It took Tiger ONE YEAR to make the change! If it takes a world class player a year to make a change should the average player expect the magic dust and be healed overnight?

We get a lot of requests from players around the world on how to be more accurate. Accuracy isn’t just about hitting full shots but short shots as well.
Accuaracy is all about controlling the pieces that matter…the club face, the club head and the trajectory. The club face and the club head are Keys 4 & 5 and without them you will be playing Army golf!
In this video we discuss that importance as well as a couple of drills to help you become more accurate. Enjoy, and feel free to share with your friends!
We hope you like this video, and our webinars. If you have a subject you would like us to cover, please let us know. If your game needs a “little help from your friends” come see us!

Have you ever wondered how players find a golf instructor or how YOU should choose one?
In this webinar we talk about a few of the things that everyone SHOULD ask, and know, before choosing the right one. Choosing the right instructor for you helps determine whether or not you have success in reaching your goals.
Congratulations to 2015 Masters Winner Jordan Spieth and his coach Cameron McCormick.
In this webinar we look back at the 2015 Masters and discuss the mental, and physical game of winner Jordan Spieth. While some are quick to criticize the swing of young Jordan, others – who have been teaching this game a LONG time, know why it works and wouldn’t change a thing!
We had a ton of requests for the “Get Chuck’d Up!” teeshirts, designed by our members…they are going crazy over it…get yours now! http://t.co/lXBlJ9fig3
Whether the player should think about their pivot, (feet, knees, hips and shoulders) controlling their hands OR their hands controlling their pivot. It’s a question we get asked a lot and the answer may surprise you!
