  1. Which putting stroke is for you? A. or B. We enjoy sharing this video and getting everyone thoughts on it. Share your thoughts below and tell us which one is for you and why? (video of a 10 ft putt)
  2. Not sure when or why this started happening, but on putts shorter than 6 ft, I'm pushing ALL my putts. Longer putts, I have no trouble starting them on the intended line (not that I'm making them, just less frustrating). For context, on a 5 foot putt (no break or grain), I aimed at the center of the hole (had my playing partner verify) and missed the putt right by about a hole's width about 5 inches beyond the cup. If my push was consistent, I'd just aim to the left of my target line and push my putts, but when I do that, the putts go straight. Makes getting up and down near impossible and applying unnecessary stress on my 2 putts. The obvious answer to me seems like my face and/or path are open to the target line at impact, but the question for those out there that have worked this out...Was it grip, posture, ball position, putter, all of the above (aka crap putting stroke)? or is this just a part of this silly game and I should embrace it since my livelihood is not at stake?
  3. Does anyone have any golf teachers they could recommend in New Hampshire? I'm in the Concord/Manchester area, but would drive a bit for a solid instructor.
  4. 5 Question with GolfTEC Vice President of Instruction and Education and Master PGA Professional Andy Hilts For the past 20 years, GolfTEC has been training and educating golfers globally from Denver to Tokyo. Our very own Mr. Theoo is a GolfTEC student and the progression his game over the last year is a testament to what GolfTEC strives to accomplish with it's players. It's very exciting to have the opportunity to do a 5 questions with GolfTEC Vice President of Instruction and Education and Master PGA Professional, Andy Hills, to learn a little more of what's made GolfTEC the success it is over the past 20 years. How is GolfTEC different from taking lessons from a pro at the club or range? What is your teaching philosophy? GolfTEC differs from a typical golf lesson in several key ways. First, we don't just observe a swing, form an opinion and immediately try to “fix” it. We begin with a thorough analysis of a student's swing, using technology to measure the critical body positions in the swing. Combining video with the motion measurement data, the student can clearly see the current state of their swing. By then comparing the key metrics (Shoulder Turn or Hip Turn, for example) to an acceptable range-of-motion based on tour averages, we have a fact-based foundation for measurable improvement. To pursue our mission to help people play better golf, we believe in a comprehensive approach to game improvement. Because of the many factors involved in both the swing and the results, we don't believe in a “quick fix” or encourage one-off lessons. We prefer to create a thorough GolfTEC Game Plan, incorporating all aspects of improvement, from in-bay to on-course lessons, to build more lasting results. GolfTEC and our Certified Personal Coaches deliver on a proven system of game improvement, developed over millions of lessons with hundreds of thousands of students of every level. As noted, it starts with a fact-based diagnosis. It includes a series of sequential lessons with your own personal, highly experienced coach. It incorporates video-based practice sessions and includes fitting for precision-matched clubs. By consistently utilizing all these factors, throughout the course of a complete Game Plan, we have achieved a 96% success rate. Can a player be fit for equipment at any time in their development or does their swing need to hit key points before you can? We believe every golfer should always have properly fitted equipment to maximize their game. That is why we include a TECfit club fitting as part of every GolfTEC Game Plan. The wrong clubs can have their own impact on a swing. So while swings will evolve, the enjoyment, confidence and fit of new clubs will always have a beneficial impact. Where did GolfTEC get its beginnings? What niche do you see filling? What does the TEC in GolfTEC stand for? GolfTEC was originated in 1995 by Clayton Cole, then the Director of Golf at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colorado. Cole was among the first to recognize the opportunity to enhance golf instruction by using the capabilities for capturing data that the era's computers could provide. In that year, he hired Joe Assell as his first teaching professional and manager of the company he called Driving Obsession. Joe helped implement the technology and opened the first indoor location in Denver. In 1996 a second location was opened in Chicago, and in 1997 it was renamed GolfTEC. By 2002, GolfTEC had nine locations and a patent for its g-SWING technology. By 2004 GolfTEC had 22 total locations and hired its 100th coach. Three years later it opened its 100th location and had given its 1 millionth lesson. In 2010 GolfTEC opened in Canada and was named to the Inc 500 list of Fastest-Growing Private Companies. In 2012 it opened locations in Japan and Korea. Today GolfTEC has given over 5 million lessons and has grown to almost 200 centers in four countries with over 600 Certified Personal Coaches. Our mission is to help people play better golf. Our niche is one of dependable, high quality instruction, with highly trained coaches consistent in their approach and results wherever you take a GolfTEC lesson. GolfTEC is also unique in that our Improvement Centers are located near business centers rather than golf course locations. By making it convenient for our students to enjoy regular lessons and practice, we see greater improvement. The T-E-C in GolfTEC stand for Technique, Equipment and Conditioning. At GolfTEC we believe if you have fundamentally sound TECHNIQUE, properly fit EQUIPMENT and are in good physical and mental CONDITION you will play your best golf. GolfTEC CEO Joe Assell What should every golfer know before starting lessons? We think it is vitally important to find the right coach for you. He or she should understand and be committed to your goals. Have coaching credibility and a history of success. Be able to communicate effectively in a way that YOU understand. (We all have different learning styles) Have access to the technology and training aids that can accelerate your improvement. And have an enthusiasm for every aspect of the game, not just swing mechanics, so you don't just get better, but have a great experience doing it. And remember, to achieve the results you desire requires a certain level of commitment from you, too. It can be fun and very exciting, but there is no easy, quick fix. Could you fix Tiger's game? We're not sure if we can help Tiger or not, but we HAVE helped thousands of golfers of every level to play better and enjoy the game more. Feel free to give Tiger our number. ------------------------------------- Once again thank you to Andy Hilts, Vice President of Instruction and Education and Master PGA Professional for his time.
  5. Usually, when I find that my swing in out of sync, I go back to hitting balls on the practice tee with my feet together. And, almost always, the drill results in pure shots. So, my questions are, what is it about this drill that works so well? What positive aspects of the golf swing are resulting from this exercise? And, most importantly, how do I take those aspects and apply them to a standard set-up position and golf swing? Thanks, group!!! Always wanting to learn more!!! Bill
  6. Just wanted to share a ~1 hour interview with PGA Tour winner and Impact Zone Golf founder Bobby Clampett. Interview covers his playing days, what he learned as a CBS announcer, then his comments on some current swings and his passion for instruction and the golf swing Soundcloud link - https://t.co/BvosQ344cJ
  7. I've been struggling lately reconciling two pieces of advice that I'm sure all of us have heard at one point or another: 1. Hit down on your irons to improve your strike, launch the ball, compress the ball, etc. 2. Hit up with your driver to maximize your carry, minimize spin, etc. For whatever reason I seem to be getting into a rut, stuck between these ideas. If I focus on hitting up on the driver, I notice I start hitting everything in the bag thin, stop taking divots (although I've always been more of sweeper), and stop controlling my distances. If I focus on hitting down on my irons, my drives start spinning too much. Since I hit my irons a lot more over the course of a round I've decided to focus on striking the irons as I believe it will ultimately save more strokes. What I'm after is a thought or swing idea that meshes these two pieces of advice so they aren't conflicting with each other so much and dragging my ball striking down. Maybe I'm being greedy, but I'd rather have one swing that I alter slightly as I go through the bag than "two" swings - one of the irons and one for the driver. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these common tips and how you deal with them regarding your ball striking. Thanks guys!
  8. Is anyone using or working on the Leadbetter A Swing? I started trying it to try and work on eliminating my blocks and blocked fades. I have been working on it and have developed a hook. Any advice from people working on this swing would be appreciated.
  9. I had a lesson with Monte Scheinblum on Friday and got great shaft lean and lag by trying as hard as possible to dump it all! Check it out
