Aimee Cho: Downhill Lie Tip

Aimee Cho: Downhill Lie Tip

Aimee Cho is a young female golfer with a big following on YouTube. What makes Aimee unique is that all her golf tips on her channel are in two different languages; English and Korean. We met up with Aimee Cho at Friendly Hills Golf Club to get a lesson on downhill lies and the best way to handle these situations while you are out on the golf course.

Downhill lies could be one of the most difficult shots to hit in golf. There are so many things that can go wrong with this shot like hitting fat or thin and going right and left. Aimee Cho is here to get you back on track with this difficult shot. There are a couple of things you need to do in order to be successful in a situation like this!

  1. Club Down: Making sure you have the right club in your hands is very important.
  2. Move the Golf Ball in Your Stance: Move the ball about 1-2 balls BACK in your stance.
  3. Shoulders: Make sure your shoulders get parallel to the ground.
  4. Weight: Keep your weight about 60-40 on your front foot.

How to Develop a Pre-Shot Routine

How to Develop a Pre-Shot Routine

We caught up with Shawn Cox, Director of Golf at the Grand Golf Club at Fairmont Grand Del Mar, near San Diego, California for some advice.  Shawn talks with us about his pre-shot routine and how gaining a proper sequence before hitting your shot can help you play better golf. The problem for a lot of golfers is playing at the ball instead of at your target. “Aim Big, Shoot Small” is the perfect way to put this. If your target is the flag stick or 10 yards to the right of the flag sticks, you need to throw your attention to that spot on the green. Instead of worrying what you want to do at your ball, you are actually playing at your target. Having something like this can really help with the mental side of the game.

Every shot that you take needs to have a pre-shot routine. After a lot of research with PGA Players and Teaching Professionals they developed one question that will help you with every shot you take on the golf course. That question is: What does a good shot look like? You can’t help but to answer that. Once you answer that question, you are ready to visualize and attack that shot. Check out the video above to learn more about how you can create a routine to play better. If you liked this golf tip, check out how to pick a teaching pro.

AJ Avoli: Wall Drill

AJ Avoli: Wall Drill

AJ Avoli is the Director of Instruction at the historic Omni La Costa in Carlsbad, CA. Named to the Golf Digests’ “Top Young Teachers in America” list, he is quickly becoming a master of teaching the game of golf. AJ Avoli is noted for his keen abilities to take a golfer’s game to the next level and for his expert guidance in teaching the mental game of golf.

In this quick tip, AJ describes some of the mistakes amateur golfers tend to have in their golf swing. He uses the “Wall Drill” to fix many of those issues he sees on a daily basis. Most the time, golfers are too flat on the take-a-way. Standing up against a wall during your swing allows you to get more vertical on the way up and less steep on the way down. Check out this tip that you can do on your own at your house!

Mike Malaska: Driver Swing Tip

Mike Malaska: Driver Swing Tip

Mike Malaska is a top instructor in the golfing world and he is here to show you a driver swing tip to help you stay consistent off the tee. With the driver, too many people want to get up there and “grip it and rip it”. Mike thinks different, especially on the range when you are warming up.

While on the range, put three balls down on a tee and start with hitting the first ball at 50%. What that allows you to do is stay under control through the swing. Once you feel more comfortable and consistent with your swing, up your pace to 75%…then to 100%

This allows you to FEEL your golf swing! Check this tip out from 2011  PGA National Golf of the Year, Mike Malaska!
