The Wedge Guy: Speed kills (your short game at least)
Todays’ post is much shorter than usual because this topic is extremely simple but very important to a better short game.
IMHO, one of the most overused and abused pieces of golf advice is that which tells us to “accelerate through the ball.” Not that this is a bad thing—all teachers agree that the club should be on a constant acceleration from the start of the downswing to and through impact. But from my observation, the vast majority of golfers are taking the whole bottle of that advice, instead of just one or two pills.
Think of it like this. You pull up to a stoplight next to a little old lady in her 1988 Cadillac. You–being a young guy in your hot car–punch it when the light turns green and leave her in your dust. But she, who gradually pushes the accelerator and takes a full block to get back up to the 30 mph speed limit, also accelerated the entire way. That’s how I see the proper acceleration of the clubhead when you are chipping and pitching.
The short game is precision work, and when you do anything else in your life which requires precision . . . . you tend to work S- -L- -O – -W. The short game should be no different. If you throttle back your entire swing speed . . . slower backswing, slower transition, slower downswing . . . you will find that you can be much more precise in your contact and distance control.
Just a short practice session, even in your backyard, will show you what I mean. Take a few balls and see how slowly you can hit some short chips and pitches. Try to create a tempo that to you is going to feel like a turtle or snail. Slow-motion even. Practice swinging the club slower and slower and watch what happens. Then take that to the practice area at your course.
If you work on slowing down your entire tempo around the greens, you will be much more precise in your technique and results. The bonus comes from the fact that this new slower tempo will likely find its way into the rest of your game and all your shots will begin to get better.
I promise you.
Interesting photos from Tuesday at the Valspar Championship: Part 2
This week, the PGA Tour is at Innisbrook Resort on the Copperhead course in Palm Harbor, Florida, for the Valspar Championship, where 2019 champion Paul Casey is looking to defend his title. The field of 156 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $6.9 million purse with $1.24 million going to the winner.
GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to spy a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers and we had so many images that were bringing you a part two!
Don’t forget you can check out all our image galleries in the GolfWRX Tour Equipment forum.
Kevin Kisner is back to old faithful
Although the putter is new (Odyssey 2-Ball Ten), the length is something familiar for Kevin Kisner this week at the Valspar Championship. After a couple of week of testing the armlock style, it looks like he is going back to a more convention length.
DJ is sticking with the Brandon 1
After putting it into play for the final round of the RBC Heritage, it looks like Dustin Johnson is sticking with a new TaylorMade Brandon 1 prototype putter and LA golf graphite putter shaft. If this putter seems familiar, it’s because we saw Tommy Fleetwood put something very similar into play a couple of weeks ago too.
Chris Kirk is taking a 5-year leap with a new Cobra driver
Equipment free agent Chris Kirk is not one to switch often—his most recent driver was the under-the-radar classic Callaway 2016 Big Bertha.
But on the putting green this week we spotted Kirk testing a Cobra RadSpeed model, which could mean he’s ready to take a big five-year leap in driver tech.
Did someone say Cobra?
We also spotted James Hahn testing a RadSpeed in a Tuesday practice round. Bonus points to Hahn for the awesome socks!
Tom Lewis has a real superhero setup
Custom covers paired with a Callaway combo set featuring limited edition “Japanese forged” Apex blades. Tom Lewis has an aspirational set of sticks.
Phil is at the Valspar and ready to paint the town red – with birdies
Phil was a late addition to the field at the Valspar this year, but he’s looking in tip-top shape as he preps for the year’s second major, the PGA Championship. Speaking of tip-top shape…
Bodyguard or caddy?
Before Phil made his way to the putting green, the first man on the scene was his caddy who also looks to moonlight as a bouncer in his spare time.
Ryan Armour has one awesome Scotty Cameron
How cool is this Circle T?
Thumbs up for Team Rose
Justin has been using an Axis1 putter for a number of years now, but we did catch him messing around with some different grip options on his preferred Rose signature model.
Grace is still on “Auto” pilot
It has been well documented that a number of golfers have tested the Autoflex shaft, but many have gone back to previous models after only a few weeks. Branden Grace made the switch close to a month ago and it seems that its still going strong in the bag.
Dufner is a grinder
We caught Jason Dufner working on his short-range putting using his prototype 3D printed Cobra putter. Although we don’t have all the details this new design packs some seriously high MOI based on its geometry. (below photo is from a previous event)
JJ’s has some top choices in the bag
JJ Spaun is one of the quiet equipment free agents on the PGA Tour, but he has quite the setup that includes the very popular Srixon ZX7 irons and a Ping G425 driver with Fujikura Ventus. On a personal note, I had the chance to caddie in a PGA Tour Pro-Am a number of years ago where our pro was JJ, and he could not have been a nicer guy. Go, JJ!
