Since the Cooper’s Golf Park Driving Range closed, I moved my golf lesson and golf club sales and repair business to North Grand Prairie where I have an indoor/outdoor studio facility in which I am able to utilize V1 Hi-speed Video, a launch monitor, and the latest technology, a Bodi-Trak Pressure Mat, which helps students with utilizing the ground forces much more effectively in their golf swing and improve all aspects of their golf game fast. I have an inventory of new and used golf equipment and still perform all types of club repair as well as club fitting. I recently installed a synthetic turf putting green, where I am able to help students with improving their putting stroke. I also teach golf at a nearby Golf Driving Range, once you understand what it is you are presently doing and what may need improvement.
Golden Grip Pressure: Instead of having a soft grip like holding a bird or firm 5 to 7, I feel the grip pressure changes during the swing. A better way to verbalize the grip pressure is soft or a 2 to 3 at address, felt with a short smooth waggle, then as you change direction towards the top of the backswing it should firm up, especially in the last two fingers of the left hand and then as you come down and through the ball to a point where the clubhead is 2 to 3 feet passed impact, the left should again firm up even more. Most average amateur golfers never feel the difference in a lifetime. Learning to feel this in your hands can literally save you 10 to 30 years of wasted practice time.
Golden Posture: Almost every PGA and LPGA Touring Professional, on the main tours, display perfect posture at address. This includes some knee flex, bending from the hip socket (posterior back and up), sucking in the core muscles as if someone was going to hit you in the stomach, sticking your chest out to take the rounding of the upper back out, and angling your face and head down some, so you can see a picture including; 3 feet on either side of the ball, your feet and legs and the club shaft and clubface angle as well as your hands and arms.
Golden Upper Body Rotation: As you move the club away, make the left knee move straight out towards the target line, this will help the left shoulder to rotate down versus the shoulders moving too horizontal in the backswing, which causes the head to move off the ball too much.
Golden Swing Planes: After about 3 feet of clubhead motion, focus on rotating the left elbow, clockwise to the right. This will make the upper left arm be connected to the chest just above the left pectoral muscle. As you come down and forward, rotate the left elbow, a little more clockwise to the right, this will shallow the shaft coming down and forward, creating shaft Lean… Ball compression.
Golden Putting Thoughts: Patrick Cantlay performed very impressively in the last 72 holes of tournament play; he led all 8 rounds. His ball striking was impressive but his putting under pressure was perhaps the best in history. Takeaways: His stroke is a long backstroke and then a shorter stroke after ball contact. I believe Harvey Pennick referred to this as dead weight putting and this motion controls the impact, so the face comes out square and the loft on the club tends to be perfect, which rolls the ball beautifully.
