Newsletter “The Bests Things I have Learned in Golf” 8-26-18
By -Bob Marlow – PGA Golf Professional
Putting: Firm grip 5 to7 on a scale of 1 to 10. Take the putter head back low to the ground (with the shoulders moving the arms and putter). Important to have a firm grip with both hands and somewhat arched wrists, to keep the wrists and arms from hinging and rotating too much during the stroke. The putter head should remain square to arc of the stroke. Begin releasing the putter head from the end of the backstroke and hold your finish without any recoil of the putter head. Coming forward again move the putter with the shoulders, so the wrist don’t release too much. Think high draw toe past the heel of the putter.
Pitching: Notice how tour professionals hit pitch shots that seem to take one bounce and then begin checking or stopping due to backspin. Try this; with a sand or a lob wedge, play the ball in the center of your feet with the feet about a foot apart and with neutral shaft lean. Open the shoulders to the left of the target. Take the club head away while leaning left and not hinging the club head with the wrists much in your backswing. As you take the club away, make your left knee goes straight out toward the target line, this helps the weight to stay on the left side, unlike the normal weight shift that occurs in a full swing. Coming forward start moving the club head first and think flip the club head under the ball with the wrists, unhinging them briskly while keeping the arms from rotating. This unhinging without rotating the arms causes the club to tear out of the hands and you will end up holding the club along your left hip with only the thumb and forefinger of each hand, the pinchers.
Full Swing: Don’t be afraid of change in your golf game, it is inevitable and evolving. I have been playing golf for 56 years and been a PGA Golf Professional for about 50 years. I made the following changes in my golf swing recently.
1. I moved my weight on my feet at address more toward my heels, feels like it ends up just in front of my ankles.
2. Relative to the target line, I have my feet closed by 3 to 4 inches, left foot ahead of the right and my shoulders open by 5 to 10 degrees, both feet angled out, 30 degrees on the left and 10 on the right. This alignment of the feet and shoulders allows you to take the club and your arms in the backswing with the thought of moving them in one piece, so the club does not come to the inside too soon. Ben Hogan and Sam Snead both set up this way and Tiger Woods and Adam Scott learned it from Butch Harmon who learned it from Hogan.
3. In the address position I have my hands and arms angled down (not up) which makes it very easy to have the correct angle of the wrists at the top of the backswing. Left wrist ideally flat (in line with the left arm), right wrist hinged back.
4. As I start the club away from the ball, I think… left shoulder down. This makes the club face close by 30 to 45 degrees in just 2 to 3 feet of club head movement. While the hands, arms and the club are still in front of my body, I begin rotating both arms clockwise to the right about 90 degrees. The butt of the club should point about 6 feet outside the target line. This rotation of both arms should make the left wrist become flat and the right wrist hinge back, I think, lay the club shaft off to the left.
5. Coming down and forward, I bring the club down, so my right elbow comes down in front of my right hip, this shallows out the downswing and increases lag, then I release to a straight- line position through the ball.
6. My left leg hyperextends in the finish with the right knee close to the left knee, firm left side verses soft. This protects the left knee. My number eight iron today was going 170 yards in a heavy air condition.
I have never hit the ball better and feel now I can go back to working on putting it all together by working on routines which are the key to execution……… If you have question on any aspect of the enclosed info or are interested in lessons, call me at 214-882-3298 firstname.lastname@example.org
