Sorry about sending in a picture of me working in Palm Desert while it is snowing in Seattle, but we have had some horrible weather here as well. It rained and got down to 50 degrees on two days!
Here is an oldie but goodie drill for putting that is making a big comeback, thanks to a company called Momentus. They make many well-made teaching aids for golfers of all abilities and ages.
If you are like most up-to-date golfers you are probably looking down at a 460cc driver while hitting those long balls off of the tee. But I bet you did not know that large headed driver could be costing you valuable yardage!
Today we have an expert – Rick Huegli, Sports Performance Director at Velocity Sports Performance in Redmond. Rick was the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of Washington for 19 years and has been coaching athletes of all ages and abilities for over 30 years. Thank you for the help Rick.
Before we get to the lesson this week I want to congratulate Scott Piercy on his win last weekend at the Wichita Open a Nationwide Tour event. I have spent many hours working with Scott on his swing and he is a great kid.
All golfers love the feeling of a solid, well-struck shot. Hitting the ball as far or past your playing partners is a goal I hear quite often from people who come in for help because their drives lack distance.
