If you are looking for a solid pre-shot routine, then look no further! Tiger has developed this one over decades of experience. This routine will allow you to feel the shot you want to hit and get you ready to dynamically move your action into your target through the ball in a very effortless manner. You will understand the true purpose of the pre-shot routine!
Here are the four elements you need to cover in the 40 seconds you have prior to each of your shots. You should be able to easily get through these points in 25 seconds.
1. Pick an “end target” or a place you want to have the ball end up
2. Pick a flight plan that fits your ability to get the ball there; please INCLUDE THE HEIGHT OF THE SHOT or peak trajectory before it falls back down towards the end target.
3. Find an intermediate point that will set you up into that picture-so that when you let the weight of the club release you to the target, you can predict that the ball position, the distance to the ball, the posture, and the grip-club face relationship will fit the flight when you let the club track itself into the direction you want to start the ball.
4. Set up done? Prediction of shot done? It is now OUT of YOUR CONTROL, just let the club release you in the direction you want to start the ball. Look for the feel of that low effort and nice whipping velocity that unleashes that ball into that flight with freedom and abandon!
Shawn Clement: Dealing with injuries in your golf swing, lead side.
Happy Father’s Day weekend and U.S. Open weekend at none other than Pebble Beach weekend! Whoa, cannot wait to see the golf action today!
In this video, we talk about how to deal with hip, knee and ankle injuries to your lead side as this one is PIVOTAL (pardon the pun) to the success of any kinetic chain in a human. This kinetic chain is a golf swing. Now, what most of you don’t get is that you were born with action; like a dolphin was born to swim. Just watch 2-year-olds swinging a club! You wish you had that swing and guess what, it is in there. But you keep hiding it trying to hit the ball and being careful to manipulate the club into positions that are absolutely, positively sure to snuff out this action.

Getting your kids started in golf: How to grip the golf club
In this video, Tyler Wong, PGA Director of Player Development at NW Golf Academy at Sah-Hah-Lee Golf Course in Clackamas, Oregon, talks how kids should grip the golf club.
How kids grab the club is almost always naturally inconsistent. Don’t worry about it! They don’t need to have a perfect grip to hit good shots. Hockey style, cross-hand, and other variations of the golf grip are common for kids.
Most of the time, I just want to get the hands together on the handle. I like to use the phrase “squish the fingers,” which means get the trail hand fingers mashed together against the lead hand. If they interlock, overlap or do something else, don’t worry.
Remember the goal is to get the ball airborne and forward! Worry about the grip later!
