How to Stop the Chilli Dip

This one goes out to my brother-in-law, and Jonathan Yarwood’s example of a chilli dip is pretty much exactly how he chips. And the best part about this lesson, it only takes 45 seconds.

Getting to “The Position” That Makes All The Pros So Good

I found this on my suggested videos.  It’s given by Justin Thompson who affiliated with He discusses the “Position” that all of the pros get into at and through impact, how they get there, and why it helps them hit it so straight and far.

This very much reminds me of Hogan’s Five Lessons, but is told in a different and maybe more simple way.

Something to work on while social distancing.

Grip Down to Control Wedge Distance

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.

Swing the Handle, Not the Head

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.
