Free Lesson #11 How to Chip

This lesson helps develop the fundamentals behind the chip shot.  The idea behind the chip is to keep the ball low and get it rolling on the green as quickly as possible.  It is important to pick a spot on the green to land the ball and let it release towards the hole from there.  Like all shots in golf, you want to focus on rocking your shoulders and taking the hands out of the swing.

 

Spin over swing?

#Spinoverswing is the new way to think about golf.  The simplest analogy is to think of golf like ping pong.  Rarely do people practice the way they swing a ping pong paddle; instead, competitors focus on the spin they are trying to produce when they hit the ball.  Golf is the same exact thing.

Regardless of the way you swing the club the objective is always the same, to put the ball in the hole. Course designers develop courses to allow people to shape shots and make misses.  If you can take advantage of the subtleties of a golf course you can drastically lower your scores.

By focusing on the spin of the golf ball, you can find ways to control your misses.  This is the first step to reducing your scores.  Whether it be making sure you pull the ball when there is water right, or, allowing for a push when there is “out of bounds” left.  Understanding spin can significantly improve scores and help amateurs and professionals alike.

So what is #spinoverswing?  #Spinoverswing is what affordgolf is all about.  It’s about making golf simple.  On every level, regardless if you are a beginner or a seasoned professional.

Also, we like to have fun;)

Free Lesson #10 The Half Swing

This lesson helps build toward the full swing.  It is important to  revisit Free Lesson #6 The Shoulder Rotation Drill which is the foundation for every shot in golf.

 

 

Free Lesson #9 The Lag Putting Drill

This drill helps increase the size of your target for longer putts. Lay a towel down and make at least 10 putts in a row (from 40+ft) that finish on top of the towel before starting your round.

Free Lesson #8 Around The World

This drill can help you with those testy 4ft putts.  Try to go “Around The World” 5 times in a row and combine this drill with the “Gate Drill” for a fun and challenging practice.

Free Lesson #7 Putting

This video emphasizes “rocking the shoulders” when putting. Remember, the shoulder rotation is the foundation for every shot in golf.

Free Lesson #6 The Shoulder Rotation Drill

This drill emphasizes the one move found in every golf shot; the shoulder rotation.
