short-game strategy

STUDENTS OFTEN ASK ME how to play particular shots, but golf isn’t cookie cutter. I give guidance, but I want them to own the process. They should experiment and determine what works best for their game. A prime example is chipping. To be a great chipper, you must first commit to a system. Do you prefer to use one club and make different swings depending on the situation, or are you more comfortable making one swing but using different clubs to produce a variety of shots? ▸ Both have advantages. The one-club approach improves your feel and makes your game more adaptable. The one-swing system makes it easier to be consistent. ▸ To determine which is best for you, hit five balls from one yard, five yards and 10 yards off the…

patrick cantlay

ALL IT TAKES is a glance at Patrick Cantlay’s performance statistics on the PGA Tour in 2019 to know what kind of year he’s having: scoring average (69.1, first), scrambling (67.3 percent, first) strokes gained/total (second), overall putting average (seventh). We could go on, but you get it. Any way you measure Cantlay’s game, you come up with positive results—and that includes wins. The California native earned his second career victory, in June, at the Memorial Tournament, and moved into the top 10 in the World Golf Ranking. “He’s in a great place now,” says his longtime coach, Jamie Mulligan. “We’ve built his game over the last 20 years on the notion that he doesn’t need to think about a lot on the course. He can just go out and play. The…

roll it like a pro

I TRY TO KEEP putting as simple as possible, so if I’m working on anything, I make sure it’s only one thing at a time. One of those things is probably something you don’t give much thought to, but it’s an important part of making a good stroke—the follow-through. To put a good roll on the ball, my coach, Cameron McCormick, says that I have be careful not to catch the ball too much on the upstroke. It’s a tendency of mine, and when the putter moves upward too much, the low point of the putting arc will be before impact, which means I’m not hitting the ball in the sweet spot. When I strike it low on the face, trying to control the speed is really difficult. Luckily, the fix is…

great escapes

“Keep your feet planted until the ball is gone.” IT’S ONE OF THE BEST moments in golf—hitting a green after winding up in a fairway bunker. If you want to do it more often, you’ve got to make some adjustments. The first is a reality check. There are times when it’s just not going to happen. A ball close to the lip or in a slightly plugged lie probably should be wedged back into the fairway. But there are many times when a lie in the sand is good, and the lip can be easily cleared. That’s when you should go for the green. My father and swing coach, Jeff Hatton, taught me how to hit it flush from fairway sand years ago. Here’s what he told me. First, select a club…

air it out

“Your spine should tilt away from the target at impact.” THOSE STINGERS you see the pros hit on television look cool, and they’re valuable shots on a windy day, but the last thing most amateurs need is a low-trajectory tee shot. You need more hang time. Studies have proved that the slower you swing, the more you’ll benefit from a trajectory that keeps the ball in the air longer. And thanks to radar systems like TrackMan, we also know that the optimum way to increase air time is to hit up on the ball with your driver. But this notion of hitting up on it requires clarification. To catch the ball on the upswing with the driver, many golfers find themselves swinging while keeping their weight on their back foot (right foot…

a remedy for weak shots

“The best part of this drill is, you get a workout, too.” MANY GOLFERS think hitting it farther comes down to how fast you can swing your arms and unhinge your wrists to sling the club through impact. But there’s more to it than that, especially if you want to hit solid shots nearly every time you swing. Like any athletic activity where you have to throw or strike an object, real power comes from your legs. Just visualize Major League Baseball pitchers. They’re pushing off the mound as hard as they can before their pitching arm lets go of the ball. If they didn’t push off the rubber on the mound with their back leg, and used just their arms to create speed, their careers would be over. That’s why I love…
