Have you ever wondered how great players are able to make their short game shots pull up and spin right next to the cup? In this video, I show you how your equipment and technique work together to create the launch angle and spin that give you maximum control with your wedges. I also share a simple little drill to help make your wedge shots look more like the pro’s.

    I’ve been playing with this technique and it’s really changed how I pitch the ball–I’ve finally managed to shallow out a bit and bring my trajectory down. Sweet!

    Every single digit handicap golfer I know with a solid short game follows what Zach has provided in guidance and advice.
    If you truly want to get better and consistently bring down your scores with a good short game you’ll find this is solid.

    So, how did they do it before they had all these wedges with “spin technology”? lol. Sorry, this is a terrible post. Past posts talking about ideal spin loft to create spin was better.

    Recreational golfers are going to get the ball closer to the hole more often by rolling the ball to the hole instead of flying it up there.

    I used a Chrome Soft the other day. It went about 15 yards shorter on my driver than my TP5 ball but around the greens it checked so hard with a lower trajectory I didn’t need any lessons on how to hit those shots, the ball did it by itself and I always came up short because it spun so much like a sponge ball. That’s how they do it

    Ok for a lesson, but I find it amazing how Jack, Arnie, Lee and even Gary won so many tournaments without a flight scope, what did they have to just figure it out by hitting shots on the practice range? What a Prehistoric idea…

      No one else had one either. They wouldn’t get as far without one today.

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.
