PETER KESSLER

WELCOME BACK. NOW YOU KNOW THAT MORE WOMEN TAKE UP GOLF THAN ANY OTHER SEGMENT OF THE POPULATION BUT MORE WOMEN GIVE UP GOLF THAN ANY OTHER SEGMENT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TROUBLE GETTING THE BALL IN THE AIR AND MOVING IT FORWARD.

JANICE MOODIE

MHMM

PETER KESSLER

WHAT DO YOU TELL YOUR FEMALE FRIENDS, WHAT DO YOU TELL WOMEN WHO ARE AMATEURS WHO PLAY WITH YOU IN PRO-AM'S ABOUT FINDING THE COMBINATION OF MOVES THAT WILL LEAD TO BALL IN THE AIR AND MORE FUN?

JANICE MOODIE

I THINK ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS THAT I SEE ESPECIALLY, WITH, YOU KNOW, FEMALE AMATEURS THAT WE PLAY WITH IS THE FACT THAT THE GOLF CLUB ITSELF SWINGS THEM, IN MY OPINION.

YOU GET HERE AND, AND THE ARMS TAKE UP AND THE WEIGHT OF THIS CLUB, AND ALSO, THEY GO BACK SO SLOWLY, IT JUST BENDS DOWN IN HERE AND THEN THEY'VE GOT TO CAST OUT TO GET BACK TO THE BALL AGAIN AND I THINK THAT'S A BIG MISCONCEPTION, IS, YOU KNOW, THE FURTHER I TAKE IT BACK, THE FURTHER

IT WILL GO. I MEAN I THINK THE LADIES ARE PROBABLY, IF THEY, IF THEY SWING IT BACK THREE QUARTERS, THEY'RE HANDS AND BODY ARE STILL IN CONTROL OF THIS AND IT'S NOT IN CONTROL OF THEM. I THINK THAT'S A BIG KEY.

PETER KESSLER

WE SEE SO MANY WOMEN WHO, AND MEN TOO, FOR THAT MATTER, WHO STAND UP THROUGH THE HIT OR WHO CATCH THE TOP HALF OF THE GOLF BALL IN A CLEAR EFFORT TO MAKE THE BALL LEAVE THE GROUND BY PICKING IT UP WITH YOUR GOLF CLUB, WHAT DO YOU TELL THEM
ABOUT GETTING BACK DOWN TO THE GROUND?

JANICE MOODIE

UM.. ALL ABOUT JUST KEEPING, KEEPING THE EYE ON THE BALL. YOU KNOW YOU, YOU, YOU TAKE IT BACK AND, AND THEY'RE ALREADY UP HERE AND, AND THE CLUB HASN'T EVEN GOT TO THE BALL YET.


I THINK, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE THAT YOU, YOU'VE JUST GOT TO TRY AND SEE IMPACT. YOU NEVER WILL, BUT YOU GOT TO TRY AND SEE IT.

PETER KESSLER

WHAT DO YOU FEEL LIKE MOVES THE GOLF CLUB AWAY FOR YOU SO THAT YOU CAN GET IT INTO A POSITION WHERE YOU STILL FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE THE CONTROL THAT YOU WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT.

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH, I MEAN IT'S SOMETHING OBVIOUSLY I'VE BEEN WORKING ON. I THINK, WOMEN, YOU KNOW, AS OURSELVES, WE HAVE TO WORK IT A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN, THAN MEN TO GET THE POWER, IN ORDER FOR THE GOLF CLUB TO KNOW, YOU KNOW, FOR US TO BE IN CONTROL OF IT AND I LIFT, YOU KNOW, A LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHTS IN THE UPPER BODY AND STUFF. NOT TOO MUCH BECAUSE I DON'T WANT A MASCULINE LOOK, BUT, YOU KNOW, THE KEY FOR ME RIGHT NOW IS TRYING TO KEEP WIDTH. I HAVE A HABIT, A BAD AND, YOU KNOW I'VE JUST BEEN GETTING OUT HERE AND, AND I'VE, YOU KNOW, WHEN I GET IT RIGHT IT'S, IT'S GOING A LOT LONGER.

PETER KESSLER

IN TERMS OF HOW MUCH POWER YOU HAVE VERSUS HOW MUCH YOU CHOSE TO EXPEND, WHAT ARE THOSE NUMBERS LIKE?

JANICE MOODIE

UM. YOU KNOW, I, I'M NOT TIGER. I DON'T HAVE THAT EXTRA LITTLE, YOU KNOW, 25 UP THE FAIRWAY WITH A DRIVER, ALTHOUGH SOMETIMES I DO AND I DON'T WANT TO, BUT (LAUGHS)YOU KNOW I, I TEND TO TRY AND MAKE THE BIG MUSCLES BE IN CONTROL OF, OF THE GOLF BALL AND I'VE ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY.

YOU KNOW, YOU TRY AND STAY CONNECTED WHICH IS, WHICH IS GOING TO GIVE YOU JUST A CERTAIN DISTANCE EACH TIME, SO, I MEAN I, I'M NOT A BIG ONE OF HITTING IT HARD BECAUSE I TEND TO HIT IT, YOU KNOW, NOT SO FAR. I'LL, I'LL GO DOWN A CLUB, YOU KNOW, IF IT'S AN 8 IRON AND I'M PUSHING IT I'LL JUST SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT, I'LL JUST HIT A LITTLE 7 IN HERE AND NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN IT WORKS.

PETER KESSLER

WHEN YOU SEE AN AMATEUR PARTNER HAVE ONE OF GOLF'S LITTLE SHOTS AROUND THE EDGE, THE, THE LITTLE PITCH LOB OVER THE BUNKER OR SOMETHING THAT HAS TO GO IN THE AIR AND WE SEE REALLY LONG SWINGS OF THE CLUB

JANICE MOODIE


MHMM

PETER KESSLER

OR A REALLY SHORT SWING AND THE BALL SCUTTLED ALONG THE GROUND.

JANICE MOODIE

YEAH

PETER KESSLER

WHAT DO YOU DO TO GIVE THEM A SENSE THAT THE MANUFACTURER HAS PROBABLY BUILT THE GOLF CLUB IN SUCH A WAY THAT IF YOU TRUST IT THROUGH THE HITTING AREA IT WILL MAKE THE BALL GO UP HIGH AND SOFT?

JANICE MOODIE

YOU KNOW I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE, THE, THE TOUGHEST SHOTS FOR THE AMATEURS TO PLAY, BECAUSE WE PRACTICE IT SO MUCH, YOU KNOW, IF YOU GO TO ANY TOUR EVENT, YOU'LL SEE PEOPLE JUST AROUND, YOU KNOW THE LITTLE. LET'S SEE

PETER KESSLER

SHOW US

JANICE MOODIE

FIFTY-SEVEN. YOU KNOW, I MEAN A TIGHT LIE LIKE THIS AND EVERYBODY'S LIKE OH MY GOODNESS AND, AND IT'S ALMOST IF, IF THEY'RE IN THE ROUGH, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE BETTER OFF BECAUSE THE CLUB WILL ACTUALLY GO UNDERNEATH THE ROUGH, BUT THE PROBLEM IS, WHEN THEY'VE GOT THIS TIGHT LIE, IT'S OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE JUST SCULLING IT UM I MEAN YOU, THE LOWER BODY HAS TO STAY AS STILL AND AS QUIET AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE MORE BODY ACTION YOU GET AND THE MORE THE CLUB'S GOING TO MOVE. I THINK IF YOU JUST KEEP QUIET BODY AND LET THE HANDS JUST GET IT THROUGH THERE.

PETER KESSLER

AND THAT'S THE SECRET?

JANICE MOODIE

THAT'S THE SECRET. JUST QUIET BODY AND JUST LET THE HANDS GET IT. BUT OBVIOUSLY I MEAN, MY HANDS ARE TRAINED. SOMEBODY ACTUALLY ASKED ME AT THE AFLAK TOURNAMENT, THEY SAID HOW DO, HOW DO YOU PLAY THAT SHOT, YOU KNOW, AND I SAID, I STAND HERE AND DO IT, YOU KNOW, DAY IN DAY OUT AND HE'S LIKE, I'VE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO GET IT. I'M LIKE DO YOU PRACTICE IT? HE'S LIKE WELL, NO AND I'M LIKE WELL YOU KNOW, THERE YOU GO, SO.

PETER KESSLER

WE'LL TAKE A VERY SHORT BREAK. WE'LL COME BACK AND PICK UP OUR CHAT ON OUR GOLF TALK LIVE SET. IF YOU'VE GOT A GREAT QUESTION FOR JANICE, CALL US AND WE'LL GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO LET, LET YOU ASK IT OF HER. DON'T GO AWAY.
