READS, ROUTINE & PACE
We’ll start with great methods to read the green. From there, we’ll dive into tried-and-true methods to keeping your routine consistent and well-paced.
SET-UP & LOFT
From putter face, shaft and ball positions, you’ll learn how the ball rolls and why.
GROOVE LINE & SPEED
Speed is king on the green, but you first need to start the ball on your intended line. We’ll groove the putting stroke to ensure that you start the ball on your intended line and have a smooth roll, which in turn, will help you lag it close or in the hole.
Putting represents almost 50 percent of all our strokes, yet I rarely see players practicing putting. With that fact, let’s be great putters playing these fun drills.
CUPCAKE CHIP SET-UPS
Master essential set-ups for various common shots around the green that you need to get really good at.
To get it close, you need the right yardage, connection and distance control with a splash of orange.

From bugs, flips and chops, let’s address your balls that are veering left, right, skulled and chunked.
Let’s get better execution with drills that will help improve contact, direction and results.
You’ll learn the keys to a successful bunker shot. We’ll start in the grass–a great place to not only learn the bunker shot, but the flop shot too. A double whammy!
When it comes to success in the bunker, it’s all about a consistent entry point.

Let’s learn the set-ups and performance keys for the toughies from the sand.
Drills to groove, so you can have a splash in the sand.

Posture is critical in the golf swing from the start to the finish. Find a wall, your balance and your childhood angels. Plus, too many players have no idea where they are going and if they do, oftentimes, they really aren’t. You’ll learn a great process to ensure spot-on alignment every time.
SET-UP & TAKEAWAY
To be a great ball striker, you must have an awesome set-up and takeaway. These two elements make the rest easy-breezy.
