    Good in theory, but according to Footjoy their shoes have the same heel to toe drop as the Nike trainers in the video … So negating one of his points.

    I am proof to the fact that not practising in your golf shoes not only hurts your game but can cause serious injury. 5 years ago I was practising on some mats at my local range and slipped hitting a shot because the mats were wet, this resulted me tearing my calf muscle and sidelining me for 6 months. I still cannot play a round of golf without some sort of pain. Guess what every-time I practice my golf shoes are on. A big like for the post from me.

WATCH: How to Improve Your Golf Club Release

Published

on

Many golfers release the club way too early. The low point of the swing moves back and they hit the ground behind the ball or pick the ball clean off the top of the surface. They then dream of “lag” and the “late hit” trying to achieve this by thinking of holding on the the wrist angle too long.

In this video, I share a drill that it will improve the way you release the club.

Left Arm Bend: The Difference Between PGA Tour Players and Amateurs

Published

on

We get questions about the left arm (or right arm for you lefties) during the swing… should it stay straight or should it bend? Many times our amateur clients have been told they “collapse” at the top, so they try the opposite of collapsing, which is keeping that left arm ram-rod straight. Well… neither is going to help your swing.

Let’s take a look at how the pros do it.
