    Practice to develop feel and then practice more and then play lots. And when you are done? Play more and practice some.

    All I know is that when my wedges are on I shoot my lowest scores.

    Oh, and find yourself an 18 par three course with lots of short short holes. That will really help.

    As a feel player I used to ignore a Pelz like system approach. But now I use a system approach but it still relies on feel. It’s quite simple: find a park near your house, or soccer field. I have a hitting mat. take my shag bag of balls and hit 10 balls hip to hip with my 60 degree wedge. The average of the ten balls in the landing area flies 42 yards. (I put a stick in the ground with a flag and used my bushnell for the correct distance). Walk back and begin again, 10 balls with a chest to chest, then full swing with easy down swing, then my full swing, so I have 4 distances. Then I repeat with my 56 degree, 52 and 48. I do it early in the morning with no wind. you this guaranteed you will get short clubs close to the hole.

    I’ve tried this and it works but I only have really 1 position for each wedge. Far from ideal but I have a hard time finding some place to test out distances and positions. My question – is a trackman or similar simulator accurate enough to do this with wedges? If it is, I can book a couple hours at my local fitter.

    Very hard not to overlap what others teach, but finding instructors teaching same thing is a real clue to what may work…over my shoulder on my book shelf are over 100 golf books that have nothing in common with each other (maybe grip, maybe) and one wonders why it is so hard to play golf, golf instruction maybe the biggest deterrent to good golf….

WATCH: The difference between Neutral, Strong, and Weak grips

Published

on

We have all heard that “good golf begins with a good grip,” but all too often information on how to grip the club lacks personalization. In a series of Instant Swing Fixes, I will be going through all areas of the golf swing to help golfers personalize the scientific information that leads to these conclusions of how to best swing a golf club.

First up is this 5-minute show on Grip Types: Neutral, Weak, Strong and how they affect the rotation of the club. Next up will be “Face Squaring” followed by “Methods of Taking Your Grip.”

Unlocking Your Golfing Potential: Why golf lessons with instructors don’t work

Published

on

On the first episode of our new “Unlocking Your Golfing Potential” podcast series, Coach Will Robins and Cordie Walker talk about what a golf coach is, and why getting one might be just what you need to to actually achieve your golfing goals. The current model of golf instruction is scheduling a one hour lesson and letting that instructor know what you want to work on… but Coach Will explains why that just doesn’t work if you want lower scores.

Here’s a response to a question on my Instagram page from Neil Riley. He asked if he should steepen the angle of attack in the downswing in order to stop hitting fat shots. In this video, I share two of the reasons why golfers might be hitting fat shots, as well as two drills to practice that will help them stop hitting it fat.
