Down but not out: Mackenzie’s knockdown tips
Gary Williams gets pointers from Paige Mackenzie on hitting knockdown shots in this Best Of Morning Drive instruction feature.shot. -Right. And you're gonna use this, for example in the links-style golf course , if you're going to bump into a green, if the greens are firm, they're not holding. You've got, you know, 10 yards to flat fairway in front of the green. You wanna just roll it right in there. The key here is to not-- to bring the ball flight down and not have a lot of spin. That's what's gonna cause problems. When you have too much spin, it's gonna stop short to the green and just stay there. -Okay. -So what we wanna do into this kind of knockdown shot, the biggest thing in golf in my opinion is ball position. 'Cause ball position sets up the beginning of every part of your golf swing . So, in a knockdown shot, what we wanna do is we wanna play the ball back more off if you're right-handed. -Uh-hmm.
Hammer like it Henrik: Stenson’s 3-wood tips
Henrik Stenson shares why he likes to play a strong 3-wood off the tee with Claude Harmon and Damon Hack in this Best Of Morning Drive instruction feature.trying to hit your 3-wood, are you trying to take what the golf course gives you? Are you hitting draws and fades, were you predominantly going with one shot that you're comfortable with? -Mainly one shape, and that's kinda-- if I'm swinging okay, I have a lot-- not much side spin to the shots. But if anything, a slight draw, I would say. And that's kinda-- that's a shot to go to. And if I need to draw it more, that's one thing I feel even easier with the 3-wood. So-- -And if you're gonna try and draw it more for our viewers at home, what do you try and do, technically, to try and draw the golf ball a little bit more? -Well, you could-- I'd say you could-- you could fiddle around a little bit. But one thing would be to move the ball up a little bit. So, you're actually getting it and catching it kinda just off the-- off to the lowest point here. So, you're almost getting it on the arc when-- or later on the arc, I should say. -All right. So, if you're gonna try and get a little bit more draw and a little bit more distance, gonna move that up a little-- which is the opposite of what most of our students think. Most of our students, to try and draw it, they're trying to move the golf ball back in their stance, and it really doesn't help them. So, moving a little bit more forward is just gonna help you-- -I headed off to Dick a lot of times. But I think for amateurs, it would make sense to tee it up a little bit, you know. You don't need to start with the oddest thing so you can-- you can tee it up a little bit but just get it a little bit further up. So, you're actually collecting it almost a little bit on up there and later, which is gonna give you that light draw. -And that also helps the golf club stay squarer through impact a little bit longer.
