The swing Matt Kuchar won the Sony Open with in Hawaii was so different to his swing six years ago and is almost unrecognisable from his original action. We have just posted a new video. Gary analyses his swing progression and talks about why he is now one of the most consistent ball strikers on tour. Enjoy!
Many of Gary’s players have talked about ‘voidness’ or being ‘void’ as a major key to maintaining their swings. There are ‘chuckers’ and there are ‘squeezers’, and everyone at some point has tried to and get more lag by pulling the club down. Luckily squeezers are easy to fix! We have just posted a new video. Enjoy!
Peter Senior and Rebecca Artis will both tee it up tomorrow in the $3,000,000 Vic Open at 13th Beach Golf Links. The Tournament is sanctioned by both the European and Lpga Tours. Rebecca has played well at this venue before and Peter Senior is renowned for playing well in the wind.
Geoff Artis has agreed to wear a microphone in the opening round which could provide some colourful entertainment. The tournament is televised on the ABC but you can also catch the broadcast on your computer, tablet, smartphone and other devices through ABC’s streaming platform iview. Good Luck Pete and Rebecca!
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.
