Short Game Saturday #59.

Short Game Saturday #59.

Today I present Short Game Saturday #59.  A Golf Video Blog with Mel Sole.  Today I talk about teaching beginner juniors that thing called "feel".

Hi, I’m Mel Sole, Director of Instruction at the Mel Sole Golf School, headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.  To be a good putter, setup is everything.  One of the critical components of a good setup in putting is the shoulders.  The shoulders determine the putter head path.  If you open your shoulders, the putter will move left and the opposite happens when you close . . .

Hi, I’m Mel Sole, Director of Instruction at the Mel Sole Golf School, headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.

Some of my students have difficulty understanding the concept of body rotation through impact.  Plus extending down the line after impact. The need to clear the hips while making sure your club is extending down the target line can be difficult to understand.  As well as to . . .

Hit and Hold to become a better putter

Hi, I’m Mel Sole, Director of Instruction at the Mel Sole Golf School, headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.

I play most of my golf with friends, students or members of Pawleys Plantation, and the most common cause I see for missed putts is movement. Golfers (including myself sometimes) are too keen to see where the ball is going and thus . . .
