Golf Tips - Simple Solution to Solid Shots

By Bob Wyatt

One of the best pieces of advice I ever received (as a quick fix during a round when time to adjust was not really on my side) came from my partner during a two man best ball event. I was constantly striking my tee shots off the toe of the club. His advice: 'Address the ball off the heel'. This eliminated any need for a complicated mechanical adjustment during the swing.

By placing the ball adjacent to the heel, I was able to continue swinging in the same manner that I had, but now the club head was moving from the heel back to the center of the club as opposed to moving from the middle out to the toe. Remember, the golf course is no place for a swing "overhaul." Only fine tuning and simple adjustments have a good chance of working in that situation. *

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
