 The 3 Things That Tiger Can Do That You Can Do!

 

If you do nothing else to improve your golf

game ever again; Read This.

 

You hear about Tiger Woods doing this and that but it just doesn’t work for you

because you are not 6’2”, 180 lbs, with a washboard stomach. You don’t have a

24/7 massage therapist, strength trainer, sports psychologist, nutritionist and golf

instructor following your around.

 

Instead, you have one of those nasty 3 letter words that start with a J and end with

a B. With all of that going against you here are 3 things that you can implement with

as little as a heart beat, one lung, at least one leg and one arm, a few brain cells

and the ability to read this report.

 

This FREE Golf Report will cover 3 simple areas of your game that you can

implement right away including:

• Putting; distance control and path vs. face angle,

• Chipping; distance control and impact position

• Pitching; distance control and impact position

 

1.Putting 

Now a bit on putting path-

There are two different approaches to the putting stroke path. One is an arc and

the other is straight back and straight through. Do yourself a favor and pick one.

Then commit to perfecting it. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of each.

 

Straight back and straight through- This putting stroke can be very efficient if

you can repeat it every time without any face rotation. It also helps to stand very

close to the ball, use a face balanced putter and a very upright shaft – although the

USGA has rules against a putter shaft with less than 10 degrees angle from

straight up and down. I used this putting stroke from the time I started playing until

my 2nd year as a professional. I practiced a minimum of 10 hours a week on putting

alone, and would often place a couple of 2 by 4’s within an 1/8 of an inch of the toe

and heel of my putter. This provided feedback on my ability to keep the putter

going straight back and straight through. The disadvantages are the fact that it is

not natural to swing the putter on a straight line and therefore requires a lot of

practice to keep it on this line.

 

Arc path- The arc path is based upon natural body movement. It is a simple

motion of the upper body that does not require as much practice as the straight

back and straight through method. This putting stroke is better matched with a toe

balanced putter – although I have used this stroke with a face balanced putter for

eight years and have had good success. The disadvantages of the are stroke

include a miss-understanding of the clubface. It does not open and close in relation

to the path. The clubface must stay square to the path. It will only open and close in

relation to the target. To better understand the correct arc of the putting stroke go

Tiger is arguably one of the greatest putters of all time. Yet he ranks

88th on tour from 10 to 15 feet, 155th on tour from 15 to 20 feet and

125th on tour from 20 to 25 feet. Making him one of the worst putters on

tour from 10 to 25 feet. So what is the difference? Short putts and

long putts. Tiger ranks 3rd on putts inside of 5 feet, 13th from 5 to 10

feet and 6th on putts longer than 25 feet. Fascinating isn’t it? (statistics

from PGATour.com 2008 season)

 

2. Chipping

In general, a chip shot is a short shot around the green when the ball will roll much

more of the total distance than it will carry. Set-up for this shot with a higher

percentage of your weight into your lead side. Keep the ball position slightly back

of center. (no more than 1 inch) The length of the back swing is determined by the

distance you want the ball to carry.

 

Chip shot impact position- Keep the back of your front hand flat (in relation to your

front forearm) through impact and into the follow through. The back of your trail

hand will stay bent (in relation to your trail forearm) through impact and into the

follow through.

 

This is the key difference between what Tiger is doing and what you are not doing

but could be. If the back of your front hand gets bent to the front forearm or faces

up at the sky through impact and into the follow through you are adding loft and

most likely chunking or topping the ball. If your timing while making this error is

perfect, you will scoop the ball and it will take a big swing to get the ball to go a

short distance.

 

You can expect the following carry vs. roll equations for shots inside 30 yards

 

Carry         Roll

 

LW                                 60%         40%

SW (54 degree)               50%         50%

PW                                 40%         60%

9-iron                             35%         65%

8-iron                             30%         70%

7-iron                             25%         75%

 

Depending on your impact position, tempo, the type of ball you use, type of clubs

you use, how much you are distracted by the beverage cart girl, type of greens,

weather, wind, lie, direction of grass around your ball, slope of lie, angle of club

approach, altitude, pitch of green, slope of green, speed of green and grain of

green these percentages may vary slightly but if your good shots are significantly

different than these percentages you are scooping (adding loft) at impact, or you

are de-lofting the club more than necessary. Whew! Got all that?

 

3. Pitching

Depending on who you are talking to, a pitch shot is generally longer and higher

than a chip shot. Because it is longer and higher the ball will spin more and the

carry vs. roll equations for pitch shots will vary from the carry vs. roll equations on

chip shots.

 

The fundamentals of set-up and impact will remain the same as chipping. The pitch

shot also requires different length of swing for different distances. The stance

width may vary from chip shots (narrow) to pitch shots (almost shoulder width)

 

In a recently conducted experiment with a Sand Wedge at 30 yards and beyond

the following carry vs. roll equations were calculated.

 

Carry         Roll

 

30 yards-                                 60%         40%

40 yards-                                 65%         35%

50 yards-                                 70%         30%

60 yards-                                 75%         25%

70 yards-                                 80%         20%

 

Depending on your impact position, tempo, the type of ball you use, type of clubs

you use, how much you are distracted by the beverage cart girl, type of greens,

weather, wind, lie, direction of grass around your ball, slope of lie, angle of club

approach, altitude, pitch of green, slope of green, speed of green and grain of

green these percentages may vary slightly but if your good shots are significantly

different than these percentages you are scooping (adding loft) at impact, or you

are de-lofting the club more than necessary.

 

Whew! Got all that?
