Learning how to play shots from hilly lies the correct way will not help you score better, but it will also help you overcome issues in your swing technique.
The example I’m using in this video a very physically strong player, and he has some nice fast twitch muscles to produce high speed. Because he was getting out in front of the ball and had to reach back, however, he was adding loft to the club and closed the face too early. That resulted in high hooks that killed his scores on windy days.
In comes the downhill fade shot to not only make his base way more stable inside the left side to keep him behind the shot, but to also get him the feel and look of a “through-ward shot.” It gives him a more penetrating flight, and the fade keeps his downswing supported and prevents the arms and club from getting stuck behind him.
This is truly off-the-hook success. Watch the video above.
WATCH: The difference between Neutral, Strong, and Weak grips
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
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.
WATCH: Two drills to help you stop hitting it fat
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.
