Improve Putting Distance Control

Improve putting distance control and stop three putting. The following drills are for you to work on to improve your putting distance judgment.

A. Place three tees on the green and each tee is approx. 10 foot apart from each other. Ideally, you are also 10 foot away from the 1st tee also. Now take three balls and start by stroking the 1st putt to the 1st tee, 2nd putt to the 2nd tee and the 3rd putt to the 3rd.
Our goal is for the ball to finish approx. a foot past each tee.
B. Take two approx. distances of 20ft & 30ft and use 4 balls for this drill. Go through your setup process (pick the line, aim the ball to the line, make practice strokes to feel the distance to hit the putt), aim the putter behind the ball along the line you are intending to hit.
Then turn/twist your head and fix your eyes at the hole/target.
Notably, Don’t move your eyes or head to look back to the ball. With your eyes fixed on the target, make the stroke and hit the ball to the target. Jordan Spieth performs a similar task for his short putts from time to time. Repeat the same method for the 30-foot putt.
In particular, our goal is for each ball to finished at the intended distance targets.
C. Finally, take a 20-foot putt and use 3 balls for this activity. Go through your normal set up routine.
1. Making a good stroke hit the 1st putt past the hole
2. Making a good stroke again hit the 2nd putt short of the hole
3. Finally, the intention is to hit the last putt into the hole.
Regardless of the outcome of each putt. The goal is to keep with the plan of hitting each putt long, short and at the cup/tee/target.

Also, keep going and keep practising. Contact John Dooley PGA to play better golf CLICK HERE for Contact information. Improve Putting Distance Control.

TrackMan Gapping Session

Trackman Gapping Session

One of the frequent uses of TrackMan is a distance gapping session. This is a trackman gapping session where golfers hit each golf club in their bag and trackman measures that distance. This is vital information for scoring better at golf and making more accurate golf club selection decisions. As golfers, we need to know approximately how far we hit each golf club. Whereas, the process is simply hitting four to five shots per club. Albeit, there are all sorts of information gathered by trackman. However, we would be mainly focusing on distance carried per club. Furthermore, that specific information will be collected and a report will be sent later that evening.

Notably, a trackman gapping session will take approximately 1hr to complete. Also, there will be golf swing coaching as we progress through the gapping session. The cost for this service is €110.00.

Also, for golfers that are buying a new set of golf clubs from John Dooley PGA. Additionally, a trackman distance gapping session is now included with every new set of irons bought. Certainly, if you’d like more information please contact us today.

Pace of Play “Get going and Move faster!”

Pace of play | Golf Lessons Cork

Pace-of-Play

Pace-of-place and playing faster golf is one of the big challenges facing the game of golf today. Imagine, the player-assistant or course ranger shouting at you from his fog horn! “Get going and move faster on the course, you are holding up the whole course!”. This situation would be very embarrassing and should be avoided at all costs. However, golfers can avoid the course ranger situation by ensuring that they play the game quickly. Also, by being aware of what to do before and after each shot played.

Player Behaviour & time wasting

A lot of time is spent by new golfers hitting the ball to the green and putting is a quicker than a lower handicap golf. The lower handicap will possibly play less shots to the green. But he or she takes more time on the green to complete the hole. So the solution is to be aware of the players that you are with and make up time where possible. In other words, all you can do is be responsible for your own pace of play. Also, encourage others to play faster within your group. The following examples are simple things golfers can do to keep play moving.

On Course Situations Solutions 
Golfers moving slowly between shots? walk faster, it’s healthier!
leaving the bag in the wrong position around the green? park your golf bag where you will exit the green and walk to the next tee.
Players not ready to play? walk to the ball first and be ready to play when it’s your turn to play
Golfers walking to the other player’s ball and watching the shot played. Each golfer should walk to their ball and be ready to play when it’s their turn to play.

Simple tips to help pace-of-play is important for every golf to understand and apply. Enjoy playing faster golf!
