  • Stop at the Top
    M
    CURE BEING TOO QUICK WITH THE – STOP AT THE TOP DRILLWithout question, there is nothing more important in the golf swing than BALANCE – RHYTHM – and (especially) TIMING! As I mention in today’s video, you can have the greatest Swing Mechanics in the world, but if your Timing is off, it won’t do you much good. And, the reverse is true: i.e., you can […]
  • Putting Drill
    M
    A SIMPLE PUTTING DRILL TO: MAKE THE PUTTER A ‘PART’ OF YOUR BODY – AND NOT ‘APART’ FROM YOUR BODYI think a lot of golfers put too much emphasis on trying to manipulate the golf club instead of relying on the Rhythm of the Shoulders to have the golf club actually be an EXTENSION of their bodies. Obviously, there’ll be times when you need to hit a certain type of shot, where you’ll need […]
  • Starting the Downswing
    M
    ‘SLIGHTLY’ PRESS INTO YOUR RIGHT FOOT TO START YOUR DOWNSWINGEverybody always asks “What starts the Downswing?” And WITHOUT QUESTION, everybody answers “The Lower Body”…Period! Some great players feel the Left Hip Shifting and Turning, others feel like their pushing off of their right foot, ad infinitum. One thing for sure that our force pressure plates prove that there’s a slight ‘Spike’ of pressure going […]

    M
    A SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE STRETCH FOR THE RHOMBOIDSSTRETCH YOUR RHOMBOIDS – For better extension and coil. One thing I learned years ago was the body is ONE BIG WORKING UNIT, where everything is linked together. For example, our Hips control our Shoulders – and our Shoulders control our Arms, etc. Often times when my students come to me to for a specific […]
  • The Pull Back Drill
    M
    ELIMINATE EXCESSIVE MOVEMENT IN YOUR GOLF SWINGNo doubt in my mind, the average amateur has too much excessive movement throughout their swings. This can manifest by ‘herky jerky’ motions – swaying – lifting – and, especially having the arms get OUT OF SYNC with the lower body. One of the most – if not THE most – popular drills I give […]
  • Develop FEEL on the Putting Green
    M
    HOW TO DEVELOP ‘F-E-E-L’ IN YOUR PUTTING STROKE BEFORE YOUR ROUND BEGINSDeveloping Feel is crucial for Putting (not to mention your overall golf swing for that matter!) As a young man, I walked onto the putting green at Wilshire CC in Los Angeles to practice my putting.  I immediately walked up to a hole and dropped a few balls around 5 feet from the cup and […]

    DEVELOP FEEL AND PERCEPTION WITH THE ONE HANDED DRILLOne of the most common mistakes people make in putting is putting ‘To the Ball’ and not ‘Through’ to the target. And, the most common reason people do that is Tension. Getting too tense will almost certainly retard your stroke and take away your rhythm. Although there are some great putters who ‘stabbed’ their putts, […]

    GET IN BALANCE IN YOUR PUTTING STANCE TO GET TOP SPINAlthough there are a lot of ways to stand for Putting, one thing is for sure – we want to get Top Spin on the ball so that it rolls true and won’t be as susceptible to the variances in the grass. Hitting down on it will certainly make the ball ‘hop’ and get out […]

    A GREAT DRILL TO GET YOUR SHOULDERS ON PLANEIf you’re like most people, who spend their life sitting behind a desk, in a car, or in front of the TV, you probably have tight pecs and shoulder – which in turn, create forward head posture. Having a tight and restricted upper torso (accompanied with forward head posture) makes it harder to open up […]

    The RIGHT ARM ONLY DRILLLearn How to Clear Your Left Side and Develop More Speed and Power with the RIGHT ARM ONLY DRILL Take the ball away and just about everyone makes a fairly smooth, natural swing. However, when you put that little white ball down, it’s often a different story! (ie. ‘Same Face – different Swing 🙂 Every […]

    Your Grip Could be Holding You Back and Costing You DistanceAlthough there are a lot of ways to grip the club, one thing is certain: You must have the club held SECURELY in your hands! After all, your hands are the only direct communication you have with the club. Whether you have an interlock, overlap, or 10 finger grip, the club must be held securely […]
  • Visualize Your Shot A Great Way to Visualize Your Shot and Stay Behind it!Moving ‘in front’ of the ball on a Driver is a sure way to reduce distance – and consistency! Because the ball is teed up, you need to make sure that you’re coming in from behind it; which will automatically allow you to hit up on it. Remember; The Formula for distance is Mass X […]

    Watch This Video And Test Your Shoulder TurnTAKE THIS TEST AND SEE HOW FAR YOU CAN ACTUALLY TURN YOUR SHOULDERS. (Can you get your shoulders ‘In Line with your extended leg? If not, don’t try to make THE BIG TURN!)   I’ve been saying for years, that ‘just because you get older, doesn’t mean you have to lose your flexibility’ – at least to the […]

    THE POWER SWING DRILL FOR IMPROVED ROTATION AND SPEED!One of the most common swing faults is hitting from the top, or casting, instead of delaying the release of the club into the shot. Releasing the club too early slows down the body, which in turn slows down club head speed, not to mention robs the golfer of power and consistency. THE # 1 […]

    KEEPING EVERYTHING IN ONE PIECE THROUGHOUT YOUR SWINGBy now, you’re familiar with the term One Piece, especially in the Takeaway; and I can assure you that I’m totally on board.  I look at ‘One Piece’ not only as the Arms and Club going back together, but also the Shoulders, and Weight Shift.  I like EVERYTHING going back together!   I believe that the […]
  • The Putting Chip
    M
    GET UP AND DOWN WITH THE PUTTING CHIPYears ago, I was blessed to have known and taken lessons from Paul Runyan aka, ‘Little Poison’ who was arguably the greatest master of Chipping and Pitching the Game of Golf has ever known! One summer in my college days, I spent two weeks with Paul up at Sahalee CC in Washington State, and not […]

    VARY YOUR ROTATION FOR VARIOUS WEDGE SHOTSAs I’m sure you know by now, approximately 70% of your score in a round of golf occurs within 70 yards of the green.  Yet, the overwhelming majority of amateurs spend very little of their time practicing their Chipping, Putting, and Wedge play. To make matters worse, seldom do I see many amateurs perform a […]
  • Reading Greens
    M
    HOW TO READ GRAIN AND GREENSReading Grain and Greens is truly an art form, and I’ve noticed that most amateurs don’t know how to read greens properly. If you’ve watched much tournament golf on TV, you’ve probably noticed how meticulous the pros are when they read their putts. Not only will they walk around the hole from different angles, but […]

    Finish Your FinishThis drill is a great reminder to complete the follow through.  So often, amateurs swing ‘To the Ball’ and not ‘Through the Ball’.  Being aware that you’re going to swing all the way to the finish, will certainly increase your energy and power through the shot. Be sure to leave a comment for Roger below!

    Lead with Your Left KneeThe golf swing is a chain reaction of body parts moving in sequence. Although there are a LOT of swing tips on how to start the downswing, many tour players have told me that they feel the left knee is what leads.  Whether it’s the left hip, kicking of the right side, etc., the left […]
