Golf Tips with Bobby Lopez

Constant updates on new golf tips to improve your golf game! I post any new methods we used to resolve a specific golf swing fault. I'm always searching for a better way to communicate improvements in our student's golf games. As an added bonus we have golf comedy clips from our radio show on ESPN and tips for doing business while on the golf course. Golf is the game of business...start golf networking!

Creating That Bluged Left Wrist At Impact

We had a workshop lesson this past Saturday at Patterson and the topic was the impact position.

We have some serious weaknesses there. This topic is NOT given enough emphasis.  Think about it, if you can't get to the proper impact position what's the use working on your swing plane and all kinds of other stuff.  

This picture to the left is right out of Ben Hogan's book which is still very relevant today.  I put together a short video to help you better see the difference between scooping which ads loft to the golf club, effects your distance, ball contact on the bottom edge of the golf club and the lack of the good feeling at impact and the bulged wrist effect Hogan talks about.


Here's what Hogan said in his book.  He put it in CAPS so I will as well.  AT IMPACT THE BACK OF THE LEFT HAND FACES TOWARD YOUR TARGET, THE WRIST BONE IS DEFINITELY RAISED, IT POINTS TO THE TARGET AND AT THE MOMENT THE BALL IS CONTACTED IT IS OUT IN FRONT, NEARER TO THE TARGET THAN ANY PART OF THE HAND.

I put together a video to help you with this.  I will be filming a drill at Pendleton on Monday if it's not raining so visit your Member's Only Section often for new features.  Please take a moment to watch the short video I just made on this subject.
