    The video instruction is way more complicated than it needs to be. Simplify.

    1. Neutral grip.
    2. Low and slow.
    3. Swing to the slot.

    Good explanation why the takeaway can be difficult to master.

    it doesnt have to be that complicated.
    Moe Norman showed us how to simply the takeaway.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5LEelOEbQg

    Moe preset Tilt and bend to make rotation automatic
    but key is to elevate the left scapula before the takeaway.
    ( Ref. The Hogan Manual of Human Performance: GOLF, Gerry Hogan)

    Moe said , “the left arm is way higher than the right”…
    for the feeling of greatness.

    .. and its not necessary to address the ball with the clubhead a long
    way behind the ball, as Moe did.

Instruction

The bunker basics you need to know

Published

on

At Naples National Golf Club, we experience a lot of different bunker shots from all sorts of different lies. If you have a great setup and maintain a simple technique, you can really save shots around the greens. Here are my keys when helping my students improve their bunker play.

Technique

Almost every bunker shot that we hit around the greens uses the same technique. Our setup is what changes our shot selection. The keys I emphasize with my students of all levels are the following:

All Bunker Shots

  1. Wide and quiet base, straight shaft angle
  2. Keep knee flex of the lead knee toward the target
  3. Long fluid backswing
  4. The loft of the golf club never changes from address to finish

Man are we enjoying the recent turn of events with the teaching and coaching situation on the tour and on social media. It clearly demonstrates the existing deficiencies in golf instruction today and is eroding the status quo in a big way! You gotta love how Gankas and Wolff are swaggering with confidence and enjoy our take on Matt Wolff’s genius moves. The best part? MORE ARE ON THE WAY with Omer Bhatia, Danny Lee, even the older guys are having some fun with it like Padraig Harrington.
