Pick a Better Short Game Model

At the moment there is this constant talk around the short game that we all should be using the bounce when we chip. Teaching players to use the bounce at all cost almost, with somewhat of a disregard to what the most efficient technique should involve.   A great chipping technique should support a great full swing, by basically being a shorter version of the full swing.   We must remember that the bounce is only used, or only comes into play out of poor lies or bunkers. It is there to aid you only when it is required, and it becomes a part of the shot as a result of good technique or how you set the club up.

Youth On PGA Tour and Their Swings

There is some pretty impressive youth on the PGA Tour right now. Or should I say these days, as this is not just a phase this youth, but what I think will become the norm.

And so, since then I have paid a reasonably close attention to his progression to the PGA tour and now to a player everyone knows about.   I remember at the time I played with Adam.

Jung-han Wang One To Watch

Jeung-hun Wang just won the Qatar Masters on the European Tour. Beating a pretty impressive field to win his 3rd European Tour title, and his 6th win as a professional. He is now ranked 39th in the world and he is only 21 years of age. Say no more this kid is the real deal, and he has the swing to match.   I posted his swing on my Instagram page, so if you’re a looking for a reference point to what I am saying be sure to check the clip out.   What I really like is how he sets himself up in his backswing, by loading club reasonably early into the back of the right wrist, he does
