I love podcasting as a hobby. It allows me to talk golf with awesome people. It also allows me to help people play better golf. Through many blog posts and podcasts, I have always tried to discuss topics that help the majority of golfers all of which happen to be double digit handicap golfers. However, the topics are always selected by me or my guests. In that format, I’m not doing my best to give the listeners what they want.
Lately, I’ve felt the need to dig deeper into the problematic areas that golfers struggle with. What better way to do that than to ask listeners of the podcast and followers on social media to submit their questions. In this episode, new listener Don Chambers submitted his question.
Don became interested after listening to episode #18 and was intrigued by my discussion of how a shorter back swing can help make more center face contact with the driver.
Don wants to know how to shorten his swing and why does it seem to work with his wedges and not his longer clubs.
Here is a sneak peak of a few tips I provide Don but, you have to listen to the whole episode to get the full story.
Couple things to do:
• Choke down 1”
• Narrow stance
• Slower back swing
• Shorter back swing
• Adapt this mentality: Use your practice swing to hit the ball
• Adapt this mentality: Distance is not important
There will be many more Q&A episodes in the future. If you would like to have your question answered, dont hesitate to reach out. I will do my best to answer them all.
Thanks for listening.
