Center of Mass Golf Club Toss

Physics, mechanics, etc…can play havoc with our golf game if we think about it while we play, but it happens behind the scenes during every shot. Lately I’ve been seeing golfers actively raise the handle of the club at impact. Another example of the handle raise is Foresight club data when the club face displays […]


Putter Grip and Face Rotation Experiment

October 2015 I studied the putter face aiming data of 43 golfers, and plotted the aim point of each on a target board. The putts were all ten feet long with an accuracy goal of one degree; 2.09 inches from center. One of the biggest miss factors in putting, other than an aim bias, is […]


Improve Putting with a Stabilized Swing

Want to know a way to improve your putting with a stabilized platform? Did you ever build a children’s swing set? Let’s see; you’ll need two A frames, a pole between, eye bolts, some chain, and a seat. The eye bolt is the fulcrum of the swing set. When a kid (or you) jump on […]

Over the past two years I have been writing a project which I hope will come to fruition within the next few months. Part of my task was to describe what I see happening in the golf swing. Those of you that study with me know that ‘swing’ word is one I think belongs in a […]

I Think I’ll Make This Putt

When we practice our game we grasp at every straw we can to improve: watch videos, beat balls for hours, putt balls arranged in a circle, go to the gym, listen to any tip from anyone, but the one thing that matters most we rarely try to improve; the brain. Our brain is the single […]


anxiety and DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE

Duck, duck, goose is a game, a pretty simple game (if you’re a kid and more mobile than most golfers). It doesn’t appear to create severe anxiety or many negative emotions, in fact, it looks like fun. Fun will make us happy, grateful, and just plain in love with our game. Duck, duck, goose has […]


Had a BLAST at the PGA Teaching and Coaching Summit

Last week I attended the PGA Teaching and Coaching Summit (and more) in Orlando. Besides meeting and learning from some wonderful people, I had the chance to purchase the BLAST training system for teachers and players. It uses a small sensor easily connected to any club  measuring  tempo, rhythm, and more. In particular, face rotation […]
