Piers Ward from Meandmygolf mentions that he saw a video on youtube where a top PGA Tour player stated that he started his downswing by pulling down with his arms.  Folks, remember what I have always said: “There are perceptions and reality!”  The real data gained from devices like BodiTrak and FlightScope prove without a shadow of a doubt that the downswing starts using the ground as a force to move the body in a forward direction to get the weight from the back foot to the front foot! Enjoy this informative video on how to start the downswing in the correct sequence!

“Keep your eyes on the ball” goes along with that other common myth, “Keep your head down.”  Neither of these is really necessary for the golf swing. Anika Sorenstam and David Duval are prime examples of golfers who allowed their heads to swivel and their eyes move down the target line during the follow-through.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Me and My Golf explains exactly what this all means to your game!

In this week’s Impact Show in association with Golfwrx.com Me and My Golf PGA Professionals Piers Ward and Andy Proudman talk about where your eyes should be at Impact.

Uphill lies, downhill lies, ball above the feet, ball below the feet are all uneven lies that the average amateur struggles with. However, these are not difficult shots if you know the correct procedure and ball placement.  The Golden Rule here is to not fight the slope! This week Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of MeAndMyGolf walk you through the downhill lie in this informative video.

Playing from a different lie nearly every time you strike the ball is part of what makes golf great. Piers Ward and Andy Proudman tackle one of the more difficult shots you will come across: the downhill lie.

Andy Proudman from meandmygolf.com talks about creating on-course situations to make your practice more enjoyable and make a difference to your game. However, I would like to go one better.  If you are a higher handicap, you will not do what Andy did and get it up and down all three times. Instead, play 4 or 5 shots from each of those situations, keep a notebook in your bag and keep score.  Each time you go to practice these shots, you have to beat your previous score.  If not, you have to do them all over again.  That way, you know for sure that you are improving!

Most of the golf instruction you read and view daily is for golfers who slice!  That’s because most high handicappers have that flaw in their swing.  However, as a golfer gets better, sometimes a hook or pull-hook will appear in their games.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf set out to show you how to eradicate the hook once and for all is not as hard as it seems!

When I started golf at the age of 16 in 1972, most of the instruction revolved around leg drive!  This is how you get your power, I was told.  That is still true to a certain extent even now, but rotational power with the upper torso needs to be involved in the process as well.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf explain the finer points of this important move in the golf swing!

The backswing puts your body in a good position to start the downswing.  That is the main reason why it is not necessary to have a fast backswing.  The faster you swing, the more difficult it is to get to the top of the backswing consistently.  On the downswing, the sequence of moving body parts and their direction is critical.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf do an excellent job of showing you exactly what you need to do to achieve this.

Face to Path is a measurement of the difference between your clubhead path and your clubface angle at impact.  This is a critical measurement. Most golfers view their divot only to determine clubhead path because they can’t see the clubface angle at impact and will automatically start to compensate for bringing the ball back online.  That is how bad habits are formed that eventually become permanent in the golf swing.  To better understand these measurements, go and take a lesson with a Pro who uses either FlightScope or Trackman.  They will most certainly help your golf game!  Thanks to Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf for sharing this interesting video!

In today’s Impact Show Me and My Golf PGA Professionals Piers Ward and Andy Proudman discuss the biggest reason the legs don’t efficiently work in the down swing causing 3 of the most common swing faults. We talk about the very common root cause to the Hanging Back, Early Release and Over the Top swing faults.

Chipping it close around the green requires a good imagination (think Seve) and a good chipping technique.  After practicing several different shots around the green on the range, you will have several different shots to choose from when facing a chip shot on the course.  Choose the option you think will work best for you in that situation.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of Meandmygolf demonstrate just how to do this!

With the ball above your feet, there is a relationship between the clubface angle and the body alignment that needs to be considered to hit a successful shot.  Piers Ward and Andy Proudman of  Meandmygolf do a good job explaining how to pull off this difficult shot.

With the ball above the feet, there is a tendency for the clubface to close through impact, so aim a lot more to the right!

HOW TO HIT A PITCH SHOT WITH BALL ABOVE FEET. In this week’s Go Low, PGA Professionals Piers Ward and Andy Proudman demonstrate how the loft of the club can affect your aim when the ball is above your feet.
