Weekly Swing Reminder - Grip, Aim, Stance

These are the three most important things in your golf set up. If any of them is off, you will not hit consistent shots. You can use one of three types of grips; interlock, overlap or ten finger, it really doesn’t matter as long as your hands are in the correct position. Aim is often overlooked. For instance, if you're going to play a fade, line up on the right side of the tee box and aim down the left side of the fairway. Stance must be athletic. Just like if you were playing defense in basketball. This will make it easy to turn on your body’s axis. Head on over to the range and practice this. Hope it helps you play better golf.

Weekly Swing Reminder - Never Up, Never In

Have you ever made a putt that came up short? You must get the golf
ball to the hole for it to go in. Focus on a good stroke and keep your
head down. Have you ever practiced putting with your eyes closed? It is a great drill that gives you more feel in your putting. Line up three balls at one, two and three feet from the hole in a line. Now, step up to the one foot ball, close your eyes and putt it in the hole. Listen for the ball to go in the cup. Now the two foot ball, then the three foot ball. Did you make all three? Now, move them to a different spot around the cup, same drill make all three. Try to make 15 putts in a row. Hopefully this will help you make more putts.
Have a great golf day.
