For More Stability In Your Body and Golf Swing

Do Some "Sit To Stands" Periodically Throughout the Day

Lack of stability in your lower body– and being unable to stay in your spine angle, is often the result of having weak Glutes and Tight Hip Flexors.  Because the entire body is a UNIT where all the muscle chains work in unison with one another, there are other reasons, but weak glutes are usually a major part of the problem.  

WHY you ask?  Because we live in a culture where we SIT DOWN TOO MUCH, and consequently don’t walk and MOVE enough!  Therefore, the old adage of ‘If you don’t use it – you’ll Lose it’ applies here. 

I’ve never seen a tour player who had weak glutes, BUT, I’ve seen plenty of high handicappers and senior citizens that do.  

In the video above, I explain a simple exercise called SIT TO STANDS  that will absolutely strengthen your glutes – as well as improve your leg and hip strength.  Just doing these a few times a day will definitely help strengthen your glutes and posture, and get your golf game – and Health

– HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION!

Get Rid Of The Chipping Yips For Good

By Using The Putting Chip

We all know how many golfers (especially Seniors) get the Putting Yips in their stroke.  However, another form of the Yips which we don’t hear about are the CHIPPING YIPS.  

In both cases, the Yips tend to occur when the trail arm hand (Right Hand for Right Handed Golfers ) take over and tend to Flip the Hands through the shot – nearly always resulting in a chunk, skull, or a myriad of other bad shots.

Years ago, I had the privilege of working with one of the Great Short Game Wizards of all time – Paul Runyan. 

Paul taught me the PUTTING CHIP where the golfer severely Weakens his grip  and uses only the shoulders and upper arms.  With a Weak Grip, and using the Shoulders, the hands will be taken out of play and the golfer will then be using the Big Muscles of his Torso, and not rely on the Little Muscles….The Hands.

So if you’re struggling on your chips, give THE PUTTING CHIP and you should feel a sudden different in your Chip Shots!
