Travis Fulton: Stick your approach
Travis Fulton, Director of Instruction for TOUR Academy TPC Sawgrass, teaches an easy way to make better impact with your irons.Thank for joining me on Golf Channel Academy. I'm Travis Fulton, Director of Instruction for tour academy, TPC Sawgrass. And I wanna help you stick the golf ball closer to the flag stick with your iron game and in order to do that you need to be different. At impact, so let's talk about that. When you look at a good set up position, your shoulders are gonna be square and your hips are gonna be relatively square. When you look at a good impact position , it's very different, the lower body is gonna move left, and start to turn and open up. But yet my shoulders are gonna remain relatively square. That's a very difficult position to learn how to do. The most common error, when you look at an impact position , is your hips may open up, but yet your shoulders open up at the same rate, and that really sends the clubahead and wind up, and then just take it right through that impact position . I think if you do that, if you're different at impact where your hips are left and opening and your shoulders are

I was expecting another nursery rhyme . Don't know any others. Alright we got another email. Don't remember back that far. This one is from Scott. And Scott say I plan to get a new driver.

And you had Ted Bishop going to dinner that night, so perplexed, wondering who had won three Senior Majors in a row, Kenny Perry or you? That's how well you drove it. But you have some advice for the amateur golfer about maybe your an approach that could help them be more effective. I, I listened to Tom Weiskopf on Feherty say that Hogan. Mm-hm. Told him the most important shot in golf is the tee shot . I, I agree with that 100%. And it's an area where, I, I lost my confidence with my driver and I've been sort of re-habing myself lately and John Cook actually helped me cook up this idea. And, and, and so what I've done is I've gone basically to two drivers and, and I've got a more conventional driver and I'm setting that up using the wrenches that comes with all the new fancy drivers that are out there now. And basically what I'm doing is, I'm setting up my, my normal driver to where I'm eliminating one side of the golf course . So what I did was I took the lock down on this club, and, and I also put the weight out towards the toe. So in making those two adjustments, what I'm gonna do is eliminate the left side of the golf course and when I use this club, I only try and move it one direction. That's left to right. So let me try and hit a couple of those, and I really feel like that helps me eliminate the left side of the golf course . And again folks this is sort of a mental rehab type thing, where I'm trying to reestablish some confidence and hitting these live up in front of you guys is gonna help me with that a little bit too. And when, when Hogan became the best player in the world of his era, that's what he did. The left side of the golf course was not in play for him. So my goal as I look down this driving range , I'm gonna try and start this up the left hand side and get it peeling to the right. That's really my only
