If you tilt or straighten the top half of the body going back the arms tend to go too far behind it. The way the right arm works is a bit of a mystery to a lot of golfers because they have such bad posture and arm angles at set-up. We have just uploaded a new video to the Members Area. Gary explains the correct arm structure and what he means when he say’s “The Arms Pull the Body” into a coil.
Tour players can chip the ball in low and get a lot of spin. To hit it hard and be able to stop it you need to present the full face when you chip. Most people get into trouble because the have to add loft and scythe across the ball to get it up. We have just posted a new Tour Player Lesson.
If you move out of your original Body Shape you will need a bigger lateral move across in transition. Many of the older players used to have big lateral moves. We have just uploaded a new video. Enjoy!
‘The Wall’ concept helps most people understand how the left and right side of the body should work during the swing.
You want to get on ‘The Wall’ with your left side, not through it.
Many students and even some Tour Players end up getting this wrong and it feels bad!
If you can’t stop stalling and shifting back or you are falling back after impact, chances are you are through ‘The Wall’ at set-up.
This new video will help.
Gavin Coles turned 50 earlier this year and last week competed in the Regional Qualifier for the PGA Champions Tour. He dusted off the clubs a couple of weeks ago and started practising again for the event. Gavin finished with four birdies in his last six holes and made it through to the PGA Tour Champions Final Qualifying which starts November 27-30 in Tampa. He turned in rounds of 68,72,71 and 72 and finished in 24th position.
Jean-Francois Remesy also progressed to Final Stage finishing in a tie for 15th on 8-under-par.
Most people with low arm actions have trouble with steep shoulders on the downswing or the right shoulder popping out as they try to shallow the club. In this new video Gary demonstrates how the right shoulder should work coming down and why steep shoulder and low arm actions cause so many problems.
There is so much written about the left wrist and the bowed look great ball strikers get post impact. If you look at Gary’s players closely they all have that look. Many players have to flip the left wrist under or flex it down the target line. In this video Gary demonstrates the other option and looks at the secret in the wrist.
Peter Senior just shot 11-under-par in the opening round of the NSW Senior Open at Thurgoona Country Club Resort. Senior only missed one green and made one bogey in an otherwise flawless round of golf.
” It is always nice to play a round where you never miss a shot” said Senior
He has been working hard on his swing in the lead up to the Australian Open in November.
Senior currently leads the field by 9 shots. Nice Playing Pete!

Most golfer’s have no idea what swing pattern they are! If you do the groundwork and understand your pattern and what causes your swing faults, you have a much better chance of fixing them. Quickly in this case!
We have just uploaded a new video for all the over-rotators! You know who you are!
