Have You Ever Improved From Game Improvement Tips?

I know a LOT of players that live their life and game by these.

And yep…they are mostly quick tips that don’t apply to me OR you!

I had a player the other day that I had never worked with before.

I asked him what he was working on and he showed me 5 handwritten pages of game improvement tips he had seen from the Golf Channel, magazines, and YouTube videos and of course the all time worst thing you could do…advice from a friend!

5 PAGES!

I asked him, with all of these tips and notes how many of them have actually helped you.  He said, NONE…that’s why I’m here!

Sergio Garcia Masters Champion

Sergio Garcia Masters ChampionCongratulations to Sergio Garcia, 2017 Master Champion!

 

This year the Masters started with conditions they have rarely had…wind, cold and rain!

The often a bridesmaid, but never a bride, finally won his first major and on a very special day!  Today was Seve’s 60th birthday and what a way to celebrate!

In 1999 Sergio was the low amateur and Jose Maria Olazabal was the winner.  Seve always said Sergio would win the Masters but he probably never dreamt it would take this long.

The duel between Justin Rose and Sergio was a classic and turned around at the 13th where Sergio had pulled his drive.  His next shot was a punch out, up the fairway, and left him a great angle to the pin.

After his pitch shot, he had about 10 feet for par…and he made it!  That may have been the par of the tournament for Sergio.

Both players are “class” people and they’re good friends.

As you watched them all day they rarely talked, they stayed focused on the task at hand!  At times they would acknowledge one another’s shot but their focus was on winning the tournament.

Sergio said that a calm came over him today before he teed off.  A calm that he had never experienced.

What can we, as golfers learn from today?

Stay focused, be determined, stay calm!  Hit the shots you KNOW you can hit and make a few putts.

For the week, Sergio hit over 80% of the fairways…that helps!

What Release Type Are You Using

A few weeks ago I told you we would discuss different release types and ask you what release type are you using.

Well….I’m back baby!

My definition of release types are rolling release and non-rolling release.

The rolling type of release has 3 variations;

  1.  Full Roll
  2.  Half Roll
  3.  Reverse roll

The first 2 types of release create curvature.  1.  Over draws and 2.  Draws   The 3rd one is generally a “push” cut to a “push” slice.  This one is very usable for higher – less than full power shots…greenside bunkers and flop shots.

The first 2 are generally used when the player has the club coming from the “inside” on the downswing.  IE…inward to outward.

Phil uses this one.  Check out the clubface and the amount of “roll” at the early stage of follow-through.

Phil Mickelson This type of release requires PERFECT timing but is taught to a lot of amateurs as a means to draw the ball.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Henrik Stenson uses a non-rolling release.  Look at the differences in these two release types.

Henrik Stenson - Chuck Evans Golf The non-rolling release has a much more stable clubface and does NOT require PERFECT timing!  Players that use this type of release generally are more of the “swing left” group (for right-handers).  The majority of these players keep the clubhead and clubface more “square” to the arc.

 So what release type are you using?

Does it match your swing path?  Does it match what you are TRYING to do?
