Hit It Further And Straighter By Jonathan Yarwood

Hit It Further And Straighter With Your Driver! By Jonathan Yarwood “Keep your head down!”….. How many times have you heard that! Well, I am here to tell you, that advice is responsible for a lot of problems with the driver including ‘skying’ it, ‘slicing’ it and a lack of power. It actually perpetuates many problems too, let me explain…. The more you keep your head down, the less your body winds up behind the ball. Your right hip gets ‘high’ as you go back and acts as a barrier to moving your weight. You end up in a classic […]

Want To Make Putts? By Golf Pro Jonathan Yarwood

Want To Make Putts? By Jonathan Yarwood  Want to make more putts!? Who doesn’t? A common thing I encounter is that people cannot read greens or putts correctly. As you can see in the photos, all putts are actually straight! The slope takes the ball off the line that you choose, but mentally you are thinking that the putt you are hitting is actually straight at your target, not necessarily the hole. Let me explain. The amount of break is dictated by the slope, speed of the greens and how hard you hit it. When looking at a putt, get […]

Training Kids By Jonathan Yarwood At the Jonathan Yarwood Golf Academy we train lots of kids. Did you know, there are certain windows that kids can learn ‘form’ and certain windows that they cannot!? It depends on age, gender, growth spurts and relative maturity. You can have two eight year olds who are completely different mentally and physically from a developmental perspective. It is important that these two types are coached differently. At my academy, the focus is fun with the younger kids. Why is golf always number 10 on every kids list? Why do kids take it up and […]

Pitching By Golf Pro Jonathan Yarwood

Pitching By Jonathan Yarwood If you want to make some scores, then get your pitching sharper! Getting accurate from 80 yards and in, is a great way to lower your scores quickly and easily. The set up for pitching is a blend of the chip set up and the full swing really. Stand wider than a chip, but not as wide as a full swing. Stand the same ratio from the ball too, not as close as a chip but not as far away as your full swing. Your feet should be slightly open to the target with the ball […]

The Pre-Shot Routine By Jonathan Yarwood

The Pre-Shot Routine By Jonathan Yarwood Not much is written about the Pre-Shot routine. It is a vital and often over looked component of the game that can ‘glue’ your swing changes into place and allow you to take them to the course. It is almost like an ‘autopilot’. You get your body used to the actions and rhythms of a solid Pre-Shot routine, so when the pressure comes on the first tee or it is a time that really counts, you can produce the goods. Many of the players I work with work hard on their routines. We even […]

Bunkers By Golf Pro Jonathan Yarwood

Bunkers By Jonathan Yarwood People often have a torrid time in bunkers and develop a real fear of them. They can dramatically increase a player’s score without you noticing, really. Imagine if you got up and down more often out of a bunker and did not take two or three shots to get out, how many shots you could save! Better bunkers are about understanding how the club works. The back edge of the sole of a sand iron is higher than the front. It acts like the rubber of a ship, ‘skidding’ the club across the sand. If the […]

Ever Duffed A Chip?! By Jonathan Yarwood

Ever Duffed A Chip?! By Jonathan Yarwood Ever duffed a chip?! This may be why! The traditional way of standing is to move the weight forward. The problem is, the lower body weight goes forward and the upper body weight actually goes back. This has the effect of the club ‘bottoming out’ behind the ball. Try the way all my pros and elite amateurs chip, namely, set up with the upper body weight forward. Imagine your shirt buttons are ahead of the ball at address. This will allow you to hit the ball first and ‘pinch’ the turf with the […]

Design Lines – The Concession Golf Clubhouse By Pamela Hughes For this month’s column, I thought I’d write about a spectacular and very fun project that I have been working on with the famous fashion designer, Adrienne Vittadini. Adrienne and I have spent almost two years designing the interior for The Concession Golf Clubhouse. The Concession Golf Club and Residences is being developed by Kevin Daves with an outstanding golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tony Jacklin. The golf course was named “America’s Best New Private Golf Course” in 2006 by Golf Digest. The Concession is named after the […]
