The Basic Technique.

There are two mistakes that most higher handicaps and beginners make in a bunker. 

1. They do not take a big enough swing.  Think of it this way.  Swing twice as hard as a pitch shot of the same distance.  In other words, if you have a 30-yard bunker shot . . .

How Important is Wrist Position in the Golf Swing?

How Important is Wrist Position in the Golf Swing?

Today is March 1st, 2018 and we present How Important is Wrist Position in the golf swing?  A Golf Video Blog with Mel Sole, Director of Instruction and Master Professional at the Mel Sole Golf School.

How Important is Wrist Position in the Golf Swing?

Well, it controls your clubface angle throughout the golf swing.  Both on the backswing and on the downswing.  If your lead wrist and your clubface do not match, you are going to have a hard time squaring the clubface at impact.

Chicken Wing

Get rid of the Chicken Wing Today!

Today is February 22nd, 2018 and we present Get rid of the Chicken Wing Today!  Technical Thursday #76.  A Golf Video Blog with Mel Sole.

Most ladies that I teach have the Chicken Wing.  What is the chicken wing?  When the lead arm breaks down through impact.  This raises the bottom of the arc and causes the golfer to top the ball or hit the ball along the ground.  Most of the time I hear people say "Oh, I lifted my head." This is very rarely the case.  It is far more often the chicken wing.

“Is there a Chicken Wing in putting?”

Today is February 17th, 2018 and we ask the question "Is there a Chicken Wing in putting?"  Short Game Saturday #75.  A Golf Video Blog.

I had mentioned in my Monday Rewind #73 that I was going to talk about Dylan Fritelli's putting stroke.  I noticed while watching the Maybank Championship on the European Tour, that Dylan was cutting across the ball with his putting stroke.  The cause of this was a slight breaking (or bending) of his lead arm as he made a stroke.  In golf, we call that a chicken wing.  A chicken wing . . .
