Chipping and Pitching

Every year it seems someone ask about the difference of chip and Pitch. They are similar but not the same shot. So i thought I would throw out the how to tell the difference.

Use the word relation game. Ready!!!!!

Chip Pitch
Small. Bigger
Back. Forward
Roll. Flight
Low. Higher

So when you are stuck and want to know what to do. Be sure to get all the words together for the fantastic shot.

Best of luck and i hope you Play better Golf.

Contact me if I can help you in anyway.

Fitness

Every year I attempt to be better and focused on an aspect of my life. I am going to focus again on fitness. Some people may say I have failed at this and I would agree to some level. Weight control is not easy for me.

When it comes to golf weight matters. It directly effects your abilities to move a golf ball maximum distance and direction.

You lose flexibility and strength.

I started again with a focus to get the weight off and regain focus for myself, family and students. I started this time at 260 lbs. this is down from my high of 282 lbs.

The first 4 days have been successful. I have lost 5 lbs and feel better already. I am looking forward to losing my 60 lbs and hitting the ball farther and straighter in 2012. My 90 Day Challenge has begun.

Touch

This week is US Open week. I really enjoy the Majors of golf for a couple of reasons.

First; the pressure of the moment and how well the players usually handle it especially with the short game. The touch you must have when the nerves are going is something that you have practiced. Tour players are shown in this light of fancy living and play. In reality the majority of them work hard everyday. They spend hours hitting the same shot over and over and well you get it. Tour players don’t just practice for a few minutes and then go play all day with their buddies. They learn how to make that touch shot when it will matter most. Touch comes natuarally for some but some have to earn it the old fashion way through hard work.

Second; it is US Open and that means four days of grinding it out on a hard course. Smart and patient and touch win this week. Look for a player that is experienced, straight solid ball stricker and excellent touch this week.

I like Luke Donald and Steve Stricker. They look like they have earned the right to Touch the trophy.
