The Recipe For More Back Spin On Your Wedge Shots By Chad Jones Most amateur golfers are amazed on how the pros get so much backspin on their wedge shots around the green. I am going to let you in on the recipe. One of the most over looked reason is the selection of the correct golf ball. If you do not play a soft-covered ball (example: Titleist ProV1) then no matter how hard you try you will not be able to give the golf ball back spin.

Chad Jones Perspectives Golf Tips Distance, Distance, Distance

Distance, Distance, Distance By Chad Jones One of the most common questions I get asked by my students is how to make their tee shot go further. The most common error I see that results in the lack of distance is not starting the downswing with their lower body first. People who swing this way start their swing arms first, not their hips and as a result see all of their clubs go about the same distance.

How To Play Golf In The Present By Chad Jones When the best golfers in the world are competing at their highest level of play, they often utilize two strategies called the “Think Box” and the “Play Box.” The Think Box is the place that is approximately three yards behind the ball where a golfer stands to begin their pre-shot routine. It is important to decide in the Think Box which club to use, the desired ball flight pattern, lining up your target, and the wind variable, etc. Next, the golfer will cross the “Decision Line” and step into the […]

Successful Putting In Windy Conditions By Chad Jones This time of year, the weather can change drastically from day to day. The most difficult days to putt are the really windy days. The next time you find yourself playing a round of golf in windy conditions, I recommend trying these simple tips. First, do not place your putter on the ground behind the ball. This will save you strokes if the ball would happen to move. By doing this, a player would not have addressed the ball and would not be given a penalty stroke. Secondly, I would suggest speeding […]

Pitching By Ritz-Carlton Golf Pro Nick Arthur

Pitching By Golf Pro Nick Arthur Many golfers struggle to pitch the golf ball. One common reason that golfers struggle with pitching is they lose the connection between their arms and their body. To perfect your pitching and maintain connection through the golf swing, try the towel drill shown above. Place a towel across your upper chest and under each armpit. The goal of this drill is to keep the towel under both arms during the takeaway as well as after impact. Using the towel will feel restrictive. For this reason you should begin practicing with half swings. Imagine that […]

Master The Short Putts By Golf Pro Nick Arthur To master the art of short putting, a golfer needs two things. The first is the confidence to make the putt and the second is an accelerating putter head down the target line. To improve your short putting, try this drill. All you need is a shaft and three tees. Place the shaft along the target line (or the toe of your putter.) Then make a gate from two tees. The first tee will be just outside the toe of your putter. The second tee will be just on the inside […]

It’s Alignment, Not Your Swing By Golf Pro Nick Arthur Have you ever hit a golf shot that you thought should be perfect, however it ends up going in a different direction from what you intended? This could be an alignment issue rather than a swing issue. Proper alignment is one of the most important fundamentals in golf, yet it is one of the most overlooked. To correct an alignment issue you must first understand the proper alignment points. The first point is your target line. The target line is the direction in which the golf ball is intended to […]

Better Balance During Your Golf Swing By Chad Jones

Developing Better Balance During Your Golf Swing By Chad Jones What is balance, and why is it important to the golf swing? According to experts at the Titleist Performance Institute, balance is one of the key physical factors needed to produce an efficient golf swing. Balance is the ability of the human neuromuscular system to maintain proper alignment, posture, center of gravity, and coordination. Throughout the golf swing, a golfer must maintain the proper spine angle, transfer power and coordinate movements. In order to do this properly, a golfer is required to maintain balance of the body and control the […]

What Your Eyes See, Holds The Key To More Consistent Putting By Jonathan Yarwood All golfers have a dominant eye and in putting, it affects how you see the putting line. Some people are left eye dominant and others right eye dominant. This difference affects ball position and putting set up. A golfer must know whether they are left or right eye dominant to be a consistent putter. To determine your dominant eye, do the following. Stand in front of a mirror. Make a circle with your thumb and index finger. Do this on both hands. Put those circles on […]

The Fairway Bunker Shot By Jonathan Yarwood This shot is a shot which is rarely practiced, yet is a vital recovery shot from a fairway bunker. There are two ways to play it, but in both cases, you need to make contact with the ball first in order to advance it a long way. Take a look at the lip of the bunker first. If there is a lip, use a more lofted club and lower your distance expectations. People often use too little loft and hit it into the lip. In the first way to play the shot and […]
