The Golf Channel School of Golf‘s Martin Hall and Blair O’Neal teach a one-arm downswing drill beneficial for golfers of all ages.
I was going through my e-mails today and found this one from Golf Channel.
Golf Channel Academy lead coach Kenny Nairn explains how to grip down on your wedges to improve distance control.
I only carry a standard pitching wedge (48 degrees) and a 56 degree sandwedge, so I have to do this all of the time.
Martin Hall gives a great tip of how to ensure you’re turning through the ball, and not throwing the club towards the ball.
As you can see from the above image, just grip partway down the shaft you should be able to swing without the shaft touching your body until well into the follow through.
If you can do this, you’ll be hitting it longer and straighter.
You can watch the whole video HERE.
Martin Hall and Blair O’Neal of Golf Channel’s School of Golf go over and demonstrate three of Byron Nelson’s keys to a good golf swing.
The keys are :
- One piece takeaway
- Left knee movement to start the downswing
- Swing down the line
This one from the School of Golf showed up in my inbox today. In it Martin Hall and Blair O’Neal share a drill to help turn your lead shoulder through the swing to help hit better long irons and hybrids.
I saw this tip from Martin Hall and Blair O’Neal on GolfChannel.com and was sure I had seen it before. Sure enough there was a blog post from December 14, 2014 called “Box Before Ball for More Power and Better Ballstriking“. If you watch them both you’d swear Martin was reading a script, down to his comment on how Sara Brown and Blair O’Neal hit their shots.
Here the videos are. We’ll start with the newer one with Blair O’Neal:
And here it is from 4 years ago with Sara “No H” Brown:
