One of the most common questions I get after the holidays is: "Do you think I need longer (or shorter) clubs?" Most students are referring to the new driver or set of wedges they got for Christmas. Tall golfers think they need longer clubs. Less tall golfers think they need shorter clubs.
Take a look at the video and see how, in fact, just the opposite may be true!
P.S. We'll have a special announcement for all our PRO members very soon. It's something we know you're going to thoroughly enjoy. Stay tuned.
I saw an amazing stat in one of my PGA magazines the other day about putting and the difference between amateurs and pros. Tour pros average 28 putts per round. That means they take only 1 putt on 8 greens, either for a birdie or to save a par. The national average for amateurs is 41 putts. That means that they have five 3-putt greens most times they play. That makes a difference of 13 strokes, just on putting between the pro and amateur. In a 4 day tournament, that’s 52 shots, Holy Cow! Kind of shows where most average players need to practice more doesn’t it. An average player won’t ever hit their drives out there as far as Bubba does, but anyone can and should be able to get down in 2-putts.
A big congrats to one of my long time students, Alex Medinas. My first lesson with him was when he was 7 or 8 years old and I’ve probably taught him 100 times. Alex is now on the mini-tour and just won his first tournament. He also pocketed $2,000, so I’m very proud of him. Visit the Mirror Image Golf Swing facebook page to see a great photo of him holding the ‘big check’. Good job Alex!
