How to Play Golf Like a Pro - Momentum Toss 2/2 www.shawnclemntgolf.com
Okay, so I pace it off the 123 yards. A little 6 iron shot, pins on the right hand side, I’m going to grip down just a tad just, just to take away a little bit of momentum. I’m going to toss it back about waste high and let it fall through. What I’m trying to visualize here is the ball falling maybe 10 to 15 yards in front of the green taking 2 hops and then going on to the green.
Alright I like it. That’s felt like the right amount of momentum. Hold it right there okay so that was pin high and just on the right hand side of the green that’s going to be that tip shot. Okay, so we have a little chip shot right here so my distance control I’m very happy with it that’s solid, just a little right at the pin and as you can see this is pretty standard chip shot and it landed right in front of the green and let it rule to the hole.
My other 6 iron shot was you know again very, very solid as far as distance control just a little about 20 feet left of the pin, we’ll putt that in a sec. So I get in my posture, wait for it hands forward. Toss, fall; toss, fall, alright. So I want just enough momentum to land it on the front of that grain so I take a practice swing to hold my finish and look at the spot where I want to land it and say hey, was that too hard, not hard enough or just right. That felt pretty good.
So toss, fall come on oh! Almost made that, okay so I’ve lined up my putt basically the same thing here. If you feel that you’re having a little bit of trouble letting it fall with the putter so brace a little more weight on that side which is going to bring your sternum a little more forward. Your putter is going to hang right there in front of your sternum right below your shoulders. The ball is just going to be ahead of that so your going to push it back with a the left shoulder. It’s a little mini toss.
Toss, fall; toss, fall and we’re just letting that putter fall through that ball and we’re letting the momentum go to the ball. We’re not thinking about the ball going to the hole. We’re thinking about the momentum taking the ball to the hole. Oh well it was right on line. Greens are a little slow beginning the season. Par 4 from the back tee 406. 6 Iron off the tee obviously so let’s see how far we can get this out there effortlessly, okay. So every time I step up through a tee box and I feel the need for speed I want to make sure I do it in an effortless manner.
Okay I got a nice win in the face, I’m going to close the face a bit and play the ball a tad back in my stance toss the ball so I’m letting it fall under the wind. That felt good. Now effortless powerful whip under this wind, the were go. Good strike, nice and low excellent so that got us out there or a good 180 so let’s see if we can get that to the green. Actually it might be a little more in that we’re a little down hill here, let’s go have a look.
Yes, I can press that a little better than I thought. I got about 175 left, thank goodness it’s a little downhill up that tee box so 175 into the wind. There’s a nice little smooth 6 iron keep it under that wind I’m in a little bit of a divot, that’s alright let’s play it as it is. Alright, effortless, nice toss let the momentum flow through the divot toward that target. Oh yeah, be the club. Right on the money. Beautiful! It doesn’t get much better than that apart from going to the hole of course. So I just wanted to give you approach in the green here and have a nice double sway in this green and was lucky enough coming over there. I landed right on the hump and then we’ve got a nice little to test her but it’s still it’s going to require some work.
There we go, this is what we got facing birdie. So two 6 irons and we got a heck of a nice chance for birdie here so let’s have a look. So as you can hear it has my wife pinging so I’m going to get this done quickly for you guys, line up my ball. It’s going to be a tad of a break to the right, it’s up hill, it’s slow so I’m going to keep it inside the hole because it’s up hill and slow, it’s not going to break much and I got to be firm on this.
So we make sure we got some nice momentum going to the back of the hole so toss, fall, toss, fall is that enough momentum, no. Toss; fall yes, now I trust it. Toss, fall, yes so combine that with he 2 easy pars we had on the last hole there one under par. So tune in till next time we’ll do a little bit more of these drill over the course of the summer and in the meantime, you know the DVD is chalk full of amazing information and feel free to visit the website at shawnclementgolf.com you go to the YouTube page and you’re going to see you know a lot of videos out there you know they’re in different compartments that are easy to access and then if any of you want to, want me to analyze your swing I’ve got some new swing analysis services that you will see on the swing analysis services page, okay we’ll see you next time.
