Golf Videos by Hank Haney
  • When just off the green try your 3-wood to get a little air and a lot of roll... watch video
  • Use an open faced 8 iron and blast it out like a normal sand shot... watch video
  • Every golfers grip should be unique but there are several fundamentals that must be followed in order to hit the ball straight... watch video
  • Get the right shoulder turn by keeping your head up at address... watch video
  • The only way to have a proper impact position is if the back of your left hand is square to the target at impact... watch video
  • Your arms should stay in the same relationship to your body throughout the entire golf swing... watch video
  • Adjust your posture to compensate for the slope... watch video
  • Bend at the hips, not the knees, and swing the club more up and down... watch video
  • Keep the triangle formed by your hands, arms and shoulders in the center of your body and let the club dictate where it lies... watch video
  • Use a firm wristed stroke, ball back in your stance, weight forward and minimum amount of air... watch video
  • When you have a clear path to the green from 40 yards try chipping the ball on the ground rather than pitching it in the air... watch video
  • Vary the openness of your stance and clubface to control distance out of the bunker... watch video
  • Swing along your stance line with an open club face and ball forward... watch video
  • Square the clubface, pick the club up quickly and dig under the ball with a steep approach angle... watch video
  • Use a club that will allow you to land the ball in a consistent spot on the green and roll to the hole... watch video
  • Hit this similar to a sand shot with an open face, steep backswing but not much of a follow through... watch video
  • On tight driving holes a 3-wood may be a better play than a driver... watch video
  • Practicing at the range with a mid iron, not your driver, and if you have too steep a swing plane, practice off a tee... watch video
  • Every swing has an up and down component and an around component... watch video
  • Keep your eyes level to the ground to eliminate the reverse pivot... watch video
  • Try these two new ways to hit this difficult shot with some spin for control... watch video
  • Fat shots are caused by either too steep a plane (slicers) or to shallow an swing (hookers)... watch video
  • Use two clubs positioned parallel to your target line to first align your body and then determine the correct place to aim... watch video
  • Analyze your ball’s flight to determine if you have the correct swing plane... watch video
  • Use your sand wedge, open (do not bend) your right wrist on the backswing and let the club slide underneath the ball... watch video
  • Take your club back at a steeper angle to create a descending blow... watch video
  • To stop shots quickly on the green widen your stance, stand further from the ball and lower your hands... watch video
  • Use a steeper swing with a slightly open clubface, but make sure you get back on the fairway... watch video
  • Level your body to the slope, swing on the plane of the slope and turn your body through... watch video
  • Keep the ball low by taking more club, choking up, swinging softer and finishing low... watch video
  • Tilt your body with the slope and take more club... watch video
  • Play the ball forward, use more arms and hands and try former U.S. Amateur Champion Hank Kuehne's trick for selecting the right club... watch video
  • Take a lower lofted club, play the ball back in your stance and choke down... watch video
  • Keep the club further out in front of you in the backswing and downswing to allow your body to turn through during the swing... watch video
  • Play the ball back, aim right, close your clubface and swing inside out... watch video
  • Cock your wrist up (not back), swing your arms back, turn your shoulders and rotate your forearms... watch video
  • Find out Hank Haney`s philosophy of teaching golf by analyzing your ball flight... watch video
  • Rotate around your axis and maintain the same posture throughout your swing in order to pivot properly... watch video
  • If your divot is pointing straight and your ball is going right or left then your shots are off target because your clubface is opened or closed at impact... watch video
  • Distance is the most important part of putting and the optimum speed is 17 inches past the hole... watch video
  • Imagine pouring a bucket of water on the green and where it would flow is the break... watch video
  • Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface... watch video
  • Open your clubface, aim left and swing outside in... watch video
  • The first move down should be a transfer of your weight to your front leg from the ground up as the lower body leads the upper body... watch video
  • Open the club face at set up and during your backswing and turn your body slightly through impact... watch video
  • Use a 7 iron instead of sand wedge to keep the ball low and roll to the green... watch video
  • The whole golf swing is action and reaction, so how you set up to the golf ball determines how you will swing the golf club... watch video
  • Putting is a lot of personal preference but follow these general guidelines as a basis for your set up... watch video
  • Thin/Topped shots are not caused by picking your head up but rather lifting your entire body, concentrate on keeping the same posture throughout the swing... watch video
  • Ideally your left arm, wrist and clubface should be on the same plane at the top of the swing... watch video
  • Waggling loosens your arms, paces your swing and helps practice swinging the club on the correct plane... watch video
  • Tee it up on the same side as the trouble... watch video

Starting Juniors in Golf There is no set age to start a child in golf; if they have an attention span and an ability to comprehend then they are ready to learn
Putting With An Arc Stroke Although many players believe that you can either putt on an arc or straight back and through, the putter shaft is attached to the head at an angle so this requires the club to travel on an arc
Hamstring Posture Stretch Many golfers can not get into a proper set up position and posture because their hamstrings are too tight to allow the straightening of the back, so before you tee off or practice work on stretching out your hamstrings so that you can work the golf swing properly around a straight back
