You are standing over the ball and getting ready to pull the trigger; what type of shot are you feeling? The feel you focus on to deliver the shot to the target is critical to pulling off the shot! If you are not choosing the sensation you wish to match to the shot at hand, then you are letting the architect of the golf course, your opponent, your fear or your distraction choose for you. See how critical and essential this step is to your score in this video.

    Is this about physical feel or mental feel, or both? Sometimes my emotional feelings mess up my swing. Towards the end of the round it seems like fatigue ruins my feel, particularly putting feel.

    GREAT video! I do that with putting and it works great… I pre-set my brain on the practice stroke, letting the weight of the putter contribute to a nice, clear feel and a low-effort (non-tense) putt.

    Unfortunately, I never thought to bring that mind-set to the fairway as I lack the skills to adjust the height of my flight beyond bump-and-run or, often unsuccessfully, trying to clear a tree.

    Any videos on altering altitude, esp for slower (6 iron carry is 140)swingers?

    Again, GREAT video.

      Yes it is a great video because it’s based on brain science and what happens in the brain as you focus on the task at hand. This is a ‘how to’ video and the next video is about comparing what you intended and what happened. Good work Shawn.

        Shawn always comes up with good instruction and golf swing theory based on science. Keep up with the research into how the mind/brain affects the golf swing.

WATCH: What is the proper tee height for you?

Published

on

Tee height can have a drastic effect on how your golf ball flies off the tee; especially when it comes to launch and spin rate.

You may struggle trying to catch the ball on the upswing for higher launch and lower spin if you’re simply not teeing the ball high enough! If you are hitting too many pop flies, which is very detrimental to scoring, you may need to lower your tee height. This video will help you find what is best for you!
