Randy Chang: Use “L to L” Method for Golf Swing Success

What if you could step up to the ball and make a solid swing without even looking at the ball or focusing on hitting it?  Could you make solid contact and hit the ball consistently straight down the fairway?  Top Golf Teacher Randy Chang joins Golf Life as we look in a lesson with a youth golfer being taught his “L to L” method.  In this video lesson Randy works with the son of our Executive Producer, Aiden Billingsley, a 15-year-old who has played golf long enough to develop some bad habits.  Randy uses the L to L and gets Aiden hitting the ball longer and straighter with a much simpler approach.

Marc Albert Lag Putting

Marc Albert Lag Putting

There is no question that Dave Pelz is one of the best, if not THE BEST, at teaching the art of the short game. Marc Albert, who is the Senior Instructor at the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools gives us a great tip on how to control your lag putting with speed control.

For Amatuer golfers, lag putting is an essential tool to posting a decent card. Most of the time, if you are like me, you always seem to find yourself on the wrong side of the green with a long birdie putt ahead of you. With a 3-putt almost guarenteed, you try to hit it up there in hopes you get close enough to get lucky on the par putt. If this is you, Marc Albert has a great tip on how you can get better at lag putting and it starts with speed control. Here are the three step to being successful at lag putting and speed control.

1. HOLD YOUR FINISH

2. APPLY YOUR RHYTHM

3. LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES

 

Golf Life Host Does YOGA!

Golf Life Host Does YOGA!

During our trip to Temecula, CA we stopped by the Pechanga Resort and Casino!  Pechanga is the largest resort and casino on the west coast with the most amazing amenities to indulge to. One of the main attractions to this beautiful complex is the Pechanga Spa and Fitness Center. Golf Life  Host, Colton Little, decided to try his hand at yoga!

The Spa Pechanga is 25K square foot of pure luxury! Built to rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit while offering treatment rooms and relaxation areas with amazing views. Not to mention the steam rooms and saunas, there is something for everyone when you take a trip to Temecula.

Among all the great amenities, the Spa Pechanga allows you to get ready for your round of golf with some yoga. Designed to help you get ready for your round or help you relax after your round, Mimi Ko, the yoga instructor at the Spa Pechanga, puts you through several exercises to help your body and mind. Golf Life chose to do a yoga session with Mimi before we went out on the course.

We learned three different exercises:

1. Dancer’s Pose

2. Tree Pose

3. Twisted Crescent Lunge

As you can image, Golf Life host Colton Little had some limitations to his Yoga as he had zero experience before attending this yoga session with Mimi. All the poses and exercises were easy enough for Colton and he felt better after the session.

Check out the video to see all the poses and try them out at home before you go to the course!

Marc Albert Chipping Drill

Marc Albert is the Senior Instructor at the Dave Pelz Scoring Schools. He talks to Golf Life about hitting short pitch shots near the green. Many times, these shots are the hardest to hit in the game of golf because it requires some finesse. When you are that close to the green, you tend to chunk it because you don’t want to hit it too hard or you skull it because you don’t want to chunk it. These types of shots are nasty! We want to create stable acceleration through the golf ball to get the shot we need.

Marc demonstrates this by using a medicine ball and how the medicine ball allows your body to go back and allows your body to go forward through the golf ball.

MISIG with the FitGolferGirl

MISIG with the FitGolferGirl

From the city of Des Plaines, IL, a universal golf training aid was created called MISIG. MISIG is an acrynym that stands for the ‘Most Important Stretch In Golf’. It is a device that will increase the degree of your turn in your shoulders allowing from more club head speed and more distance to drives and iron shots. As we all know, range of motion in your golf swing is one of the most important aspects of the swing. Creating more range of motion means more possibilities in your swing.

The Most Important Stretch In Golf is sort of a jack-of-all-trades. It can be used as a training aid OR a fitness device OR both. Using it as a training aid is very beneficial because it can immediatley put you in the right right spot on your back swing. Whether you are a younger generation golfer or an older generation golfer, this device can help your swing in more ways that one. The MISIG is also a tool you can use for fitness. At home or on the course, The Most Important Stretch in Golf can help your everyday fitness. Carolina Romero, AKA The FITGOLFERGIRL, shows us how she uses the MISIG in a fitness tip to specifically help your golf game.

In the video below, Romero gives us three great streches and exercises that you can use to help get more shoulder turn. 1.) THE OPEN BOOK: This will help you stretch out your mid back to help increase your range of motion in your backswing rotation. 2.) REACHBACKS: A great dynamic stretch in increase your shoulder turn. 3.) THE MISIG: While simulating the golf swing motion, the MISIG helps your shoulders, back and hips.

Check out the video below and start improving your golf game today with the @FITGOLFERGIRL.

Bunker Tip

Bunker Tip

Are you one of the million golfers who struggle to get out of the sand? Golf Life headed out to Rancho Santa Fe, California, for a bunker tip with top teacher Dean Reinmuth.

My name is Dean Reinmuth, and we’re here in a fairway bunker. Now, fairway bunkers are a little bit difficult for the average player because they don’t tend to catch the ball solid. But you can make them a lot easier if you do a couple things.

One of the things you’ll notice in your fairway bunkers is most people tend to hit — when they hit the ball, they hit behind it. So they hit the sand first. So that’s why the ball doesn’t go anywhere. There’s some reason for that, but there’s a way to practice that.

Bunker TipFirst, you set your feet a little bit so you have a secure base. Then for a thing to practice, draw a line.

When you take your practice swing, what you’re trying to do is to make sure that you can touch just right on the line or slightly in front of the line. If you do what most people do — they hit behind the line, which is back here — then you’re weight isn’t shifting enough. So, you have to get used to the fact that, although your feet are in the sand, you should shift just like you do on the grass. Most people won’t hit six to eight inches behind the ball on the grass, but they come to the fairway bunker, and that’s what they’ll tend to do because they stop moving their weight in the feet.

So, once you’re able to take practice swings and touch that line or slightly in front of the line, then you’re doing the same thing over the ball. Just get set up, set your feet, and when you swing, make sure that you shift enough so that you try to catch the ball first, which is like the line, and then finish your shot.  And if you do that, you’ll catch the ball solid. The ball will get out of the bunker. It might even get on the green.
