Whether you tend to hit slices or snap-hooks, skulls or chunks, pushes or dead pulls, your typical ball-flight misses are easily correctable if you understand what’s causing them. Then you have to learn the corrections you can make to banish these shots from your game.
The good news: It doesn't take years of practice or a degree in physics to learn how to improve your full-swing shots. In most cases, all you need to do is make a few easy adjustments to your stance and swing to change your ball flight. And if you use practice drills to reinforce those adjustments, you'll quickly be hitting your most accurate shots ever.
That's what Golf Digest Teaching Professional Josh Zander covers in his six-part video series “Fault Fixer: The Full Swing.” Josh shows how easy it can be to identify your recurring misses, find out what's causing them, and correct them once and for all. Get started now!
Lost shots on and around the green can be incredibly annoying. You don’t need tour-level strength or coordination to hit a putt, chip or wedge shot, so fixing the mistakes many players make in the short game is a great opportunity to save strokes quickly. With the help of Kevin Smeltz, one of Golf Digest’s Best Teachers in Florida, you can start here.
In a series of long-form videos, you’ll learn several of the biggest pitfalls in each of the four major short-game areas—putting, chipping, bunker play and pitching. We’re talking problems like poor distance control, inconsistent contact, failure to adjust to different lies and improper swing sequencing. Kevin also demonstrates easy-to-use practice drills to groove the right moves.
But class doesn’t end there. You’ll find out how to take the new skills you learn to the course and perform them when they count. Because the changes you’re most interested in making are the numbers on your scorecard.
