  • Putting Stance for Topspin PUTTING FUNDAMENTALS TO GET TOPSPINThere’ve been a lot of great putters throughout history and who’ve had a lot of different Putting Methods.

  • GET IN BALANCE AT THE TOP WITH THE ‘PLACE AND LIFT’ DRILLIf you’re like most golfers, I’m sure that there have been many times when during your backswing, you just KNEW you had a good shot coming because you were SO In Balance and everything felt ‘Just Right’!

  • Standing Up Through Impact A SIMPLE DRILL TO STAY IN YOUR SPINE ANGLE(And Not ‘Stand Up’ through the shot) Coming UP and OUT of your swing (or Standing Up -Early Extension as they say these days), is one of THE most common swing faults that we see – especially among senior citizens.

    LEARN TO CLEAR YOUR LEFT SIDE WITH THIS SIMPLE DRILLVery seldom do I see a high handicapper who’s in a good Impact Position, and very seldom do I ever see a good player who’s in a bad Impact Position…..Hmmm?
