Golf Fundamentals



The πŸ† may have gone to Koepka, but at 53 years old, I think the real winner was Stricker πŸ™Œ⛳️🏌️

In an age where SPEED and POWER seem to rule all, precision, finesse, and good fundamentals continue to prove key to playing great golf

The πŸ”‘ fundamentals you can never work on too much are...

1️⃣POSTURE - How you build your stance enhances or limits the shot you’re trying to hit. Building your stance to match the shot you envision is very important. But if your mobility is limited, and you’re unable to build your stance properly, you’ll likely compensate during your swing

2️⃣GRIP - There’s great debate behind the perfect grip. And while I don’t believe there’s one perfect grip, I do believe it’s one of the most important fundamentals one can master. Your grip is the only connection to the club which is why developing a grip that allows you to swing the club naturally is so important

3️⃣ALIGNMENT - the ball rarely goes perfectly straight. Which means you oftentimes have to aim away from the flag to get the ball to end up near it. Developing the body awareness and training your eye to understand where you need to aim to pull off the shot you’re trying to hit is so important 


Working with a coach is the best way to dial in your fundamentals to make sure you’re laying a solid foundation

And working with a coach can also enhance your off-season so you can hit the ground running once the season starts back up

Because even though it’s winter time, you can still practice

You can ALWAYS work on your MOBILITY AT HOME

You can ALWAYS grip a club even if you don’t swing it AT HOME

You can ALWAYS grab a putter and stroke a few putts to train your eye and swing to get the ball started on your intended line AT HOME

πŸ˜‰ 


So yes... speed and power enhance a players game

BUT

You can’t add speed and power on top of a πŸ’© foundation

SO 

Master your fundamentals and the ceiling will raise on your game and how you’re capable of playing πŸ™Œ

And seek out a qualified coach to help you enhance your game
