The impact of a lie angle that is 1° too upright could be an #8 iron approach going 4 metres further left of the target than it should have. That could be off the green, or in the bunker, or even in the water. The only fault of yours was that your clubs aren't properly fitted for your game. Perhaps you had them fitted to you a long time ago or perhaps you've never been fitted. Just when you enter the scoring zone, the impact gets worse
Take a #5 Iron out of your bag and r
If you’ve got short-game practice time with a friend or family member, then make it more fun with a Par 18 Challenge. This will test how well you’re likely to transfer the short-game skills you’ve improved out to the golf course. You have 9 holes from 9 locations. Three test your chip and run skills. Three test your greenside bunker skills. Three test your short pitch shots. With each skill there’s an easy, medium and hard test. Make sure you putt out competitively as thi
A lot is made each year of groove technology in Wedges. Sharper, more precise grooves offering even more spin and control.
That does rather divert us from the real issue with grooves. They wear. Already after 18 months of average use, the ball is rolling out nearly twice as much as the new Wedge, because of the significant loss of spin. After 36 months the ball is going to roll a considerable distance making it difficult to get short-pitch shots close to flags on the fro
Is it in the mind, technique, equipment, or all of the above? Belly and Longer Putters were usually adopted by golfers who were inclined to twitch their way to too many Putts over 18 holes. The regulators decided that it removed some of the skill and should no longer be legal.
The longer Putter attached to the body minimised the chances of twitching smaller muscles to impact the stroke. Now we hear that another way to reduce the involvement of the smaller muscles in the han
If you're a mid, or even higher handicap golfer and you're keen to lower your handicap, the quickest route to that result is to sharpen up your short game around the green. David is a reasonable golfer. He hits down the fairway nicely and gets most approach shots down around the green. Where he struggles is getting the ball close with his short-pitch or chip shot. The control over the ball is not as good as it could be. He almost never sees a "one hop and check" as his bal
Another quick tip from Head Professional Heath Bensted, this time he's looking at how to improve your accuracy on 4-5ft putts. These are the ones that hurt the most when you miss them, so get practising using this easy tip. #Putting #ShortGame #Coaching #CommonErrors #Video
If you’re a touring Professional, you’re consistently hitting the face of the Putter in about a 6mm range of the sweet spot. Your control of distance and accuracy is exceptional. However, if like most of us, you’re a regular golfer, as soon as you’re hitting Putts that are over 20 feet in length you hit the face all over the place away from the sweet spot. You could improve your control of distance and accuracy. Some strikes will be towards the toe and some will be nearer

Callaway Mack Daddy 3 Milled Wedges As you will see in the above image, the Grind on the middle wedge (‘W’ Grind) is wider than the two alternatives (the ‘C’ and ‘S’ Grind). Along with the bounce angle the wider sole width offer ‘more bounce’ (or more sole) to prevent digging. If you've got a moderate angle or sweeping attack the 'S' grind will likely be a good fit. The ‘S’ grind works with a wide range of conditions (normal, soft or firm). It also offers you the ability t
