There has been a lot of confusion on the term “releasing” the putter!  

As Ted Norby, Director of Instruction at the National University Golf Academy, explains, there is no manipulation of either the hands or the forearms to do this.  By holding the putter correctly, you can release the putter like a Tour Pro.  Check it out!

A lot of golfers use too much wrist action while putting. They expect the club to move with their hands, instead of their forearms and shoulders.

If you are really looking to improve your short game around the greens, try this. Feel the weight of the club swing. Release the club with your forearms and DO NOT flip the hands or wrists. Also, try putting the weight of only four fingers on your club while practicing. It’s a great drill to get you from rolling over.

To be a complete player, a golfer needs to have the ability to move the ball in both directions.  

Right to left and left to right at will.  These draws and fades (as opposed to hooks and slices) will allow a golfer to curve the ball around an obstacle (like a tree) or attack a flag that is tucked in a difficult part of the green.  To do this, you have to understand ball flight laws.  Here Ted Norby of the National University Golf Academy gives you a great drill on drawing the ball to become a better player!

If you’ve mastered some of the fundamentals of golf (eg., posture, rotation, still head) then you’re ready to take it to the next level.

Start shaping the ball how you want it. In this tip you will learn a drill to help you practice the draw. Great for hitting around trees and other taller obstacles on the course.

Ted Norby, Director of Instruction for the National University Golf Academy, explains how to curve your golf ball. To discuss this golf tip with other golfers and share your own, leave a comment below. We look forward to your feedback.

Setting up your putt correctly is just as important as setting up your driver correctly.  However, these two shots have completely different set-ups because of the length of the shaft and the nature of the shot.  The driver swing is around the body, the putting stroke is more straight back, straight through.  So here, Ted Norby of National University Golf Academy gives you a way to not only set up correctly but understand how to release the putter and make you a better player!

If ever you look at Arnold Palmer’s golf grip, it looks like he was born to have a golf club in his hand.  That is because when he started out as a beginner, his father, who was also a golf pro, made him place his hands on the club correctly, knowing that a good grip was the key to squaring the clubface through impact!  Listen as Ted Norby, Director of Instruction at National University Golf Academy, gives you a way to understand how to correctly get the feel of a good golf grip.  Try this at home today!

Do you create a bad habit of a grip? The easiest way to get your hands in the right place is to practice with a yard stick. It will help you get your palm, thumbs, and knuckles in the right position.

Watch the video for all the details.

How can we hit the target with poor aim?  This question would apply to anything with a target, but in this case, we’re talking golf!  

I would have to guess that at least 75% of the students I teach aim incorrectly.  Why is this?  Because we stand to the side of the ball and our eyes have what we call “binocular vision,” we see things from behind.  Most sports with a target are played “face-on,” but in golf, we play “sideways-on.”  So the next time you go to the range, use some alignment sticks the way you see in this video, and I’m sure you will start to see straighter shots!

Ted Norby, Director of Instruction for the National University Golf Academy, explains how to use golf alignment sticks to help improve your golf aim. To discuss this golf tip with other golfers and share your own, leave a comment below. We look forward to your feedback.
