Through-the-wall at set-up is a very common problem with many students and tour players alike. If you are not tucked behind the ball correctly then you will have to re-balance at some point. We have just uploaded a new Tour Player Lesson to Members Area. Peter Senior fixes it quicker than most! See full video here.
Rebecca Artis has put in a strong performance after a couple of weeks back home in Australia working on her swing. She finished in a tie for 8th in the Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge in South Dakota. Rebecca had it 8-under with a couple to play and was only 3 shots back of the lead but made a disastrous quadruple-bogey on the short par 4 17th, and fell back to 8th position. Rebecca has gone over to play six events in-a-row on the Symetra Tour and try to secure her LPGA Tour Card for 2018.
Peter Senior carded a 65 in the final round of the Bargara Ladbrokes Legends Pro-am for 10-under-par total and another win on the Legends Tour.
Seniors round included six birdies and an eagle with only one blemish a bogey on the strong par 4 ninth.
“I really enjoy coming to Bargara, the course really suits my game and the condition of the course was outstanding especially given the dry conditions in this part of the State,” Senior said.
“It’s a fantastic tournament too, full credit to the organizers, they’ve done a really good job.”
Peter also won the event last year.
The Set-up of Peter Thomson is legendary! Commentators used to talk about his customary low right shoulder but there is much more to learn from the set-up angles and arm bias of this five-time Open Champion. This month in the Members Area Gary looks at the reasons some students shut-off with their shoulders when trying to get into the Shape. We have some video coming that will make putting even easier, a Live Lesson on the Body Release, and more … Enjoy!

Mikael Lundberg moved inside the Top 15 in the Road to Oman Rankings after finishing in a tie for 2nd at the Swedish Challenge hosted by Robert Karlsson. He is playing some great golf at the moment and his latest swings are really impressive. He spent the start of last week working with Luke Ringrose at Tilgate Forsest Golf Centre and it paid off. Nice Playing Mikael!
Jean-François Remesy is in a tie for 18th at The Senior Open Championship after a solid opening round and some very tough condition on Friday.

Mikael Lundberg finished in 4th position at the SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge at Macdonald Spey Valley Golf Club in Aviemore Scotland. Mikael held the half way lead after firing rounds of 67 and 65. He has been working hard recently with Right Sided European Tour coach Luke Ringrose and it seems to be paying off. He moved up to 48 spots to 24th on the Challenge Tour Road to Aman. Nice playing Mikael!
One of the most overlooked principles in the Golf Swing is perhaps the most important! The correct arm bias at set-up is crucial in determining the Shape of the body and how the arms work during the swing. Most people who leak power set-up with their right arm straight and then over-shape or invert their body. Both scenarios stop golfers generating power correctly and hitting with true loft and compression. We have just posted a video of Gary explaining it, nothing new…. that is a Ben Hogan drilling it above!
Rebecca Artis recorded her first career hole-in-one in the final round of the Four Winds Invitational in South Bend, Indiana. She was three-under-par for her final three holes after a holing out on the 7th hole and making a birdie on the 9th. Rebecca finished in a tie for 9th and earned an extra $5000 courtesy of Orion Group.
Centrifugal force is generated from the centre outward but if your centre is not in the right position at set-up and rotates in the wrong direction going back, you are not going to be able to maximise this force. This month in the Members Area Gary talks about the biggest power leak in the golf swing and shows how to fix it. We have a new Live Lesson, some amazing Before and After footage, and a video that will make it easier to know your own swing pattern. Enjoy!
