Just two years ago, former world No. 1 Martin Kaymer reminded everyone of how good he can be when his swing is tuned just right, winning both The Players Championship and the U.S. Open in a matter of weeks - the first player in history to win those two championships back-to-back. The sweet swinging German went wire-to-wire to capture The Players before setting the 36-hole U.S. Open scoring record en route to an eight-shot triumph at Pinehurst.

Kaymer rode his usually reliable power fade to victory in both dominating performances. You, too, can learn how to hit a consistent fade much like Kaymer’s in the May issue of Golf Channel Academy Magazine, downloadable for FREE on the App Store or Google Play Store, or by visiting The monthly digital publication is the only one devoted exclusively to instruction and helping you play the game better.

The May issue also features a cover story from Golf Channel Academy lead coach Mitchell Spearman and PGA Tour winner Peter Malnati on how to strike your irons more pure. The ballstriking-themed issue also includes a column from Golf Channel "School of Golf" host Martin Hall on the precision iron game of Sir Nick Faldo, and a look back at Jordan Spieth’s disastrous quadruple bogey on the 12th hole at Augusta National and how you can turn around your negative history and learn to conquer your “nemesis” hole.
