Golf Notes

Alignment was a lot better after today.  When you are approaching the ball from behind, remember that the first thing to line up right away is the clubface.  Then you can set your feet parallel left to the target line.  If you are unsure, aiming slightly left of where you think you are aimed is ok at this point.
 
With the driver, we worked on unwinding your body and getting more thru the shot with your weight on your left leg.
 
For chipping/pitching around the greens, keep in mind that a narrow stance will help with consistency.

Hi Dale,
 
Thanks for coming out for today's golf program, I hope you enjoyed it.  Here are a few notes from the lesson.
 
When chipping/pitching, the important areas to keep in mind with your setup position are:
-narrow stance
-open stance
-weight on left leg at address
-ball in center of stance
 
When you are playing a bump & run shot or you have a tight lie on the fairway, keep the ball back in your stance.  For all other shots I would recommend playing the ball in the center of your stance.
 
With sand shots, remember to maintain a wider stance with the ball further forward and the clubface slightly open at address.  The most important part of the swing is to keep your speed all the way through to the finish.
 
As for the full swing, we got your hips more "out" at address (as opposed to underneath you) to get you in more of an athletic position.  During the swing, keeping the club more around your body as opposed to getting lifty & steep will make a big difference.
