Long Game Training (companion booklet series)

Long Game Training (companion booklet series)

This More Pars Training is a focus on your long game from the fairway. Our goal from the fairway is solid and long so we can get on the green in regulation.

3 FOCUS AREAS
1. Direction - Accuracy
2. Distance - Compression - angle of attack/ impact point
3. Tempo & Timing for Energy

IMPORTANT TIP: Please also explore 5 Weeks to AWESOME Ball Striking: https://www.morepars.tv/5-weeks-to-awesome-ball-striking

Misdiagnosing swing woes can send you to the wrong fairway. Instead, let’s truly educate you on the essentials of ball striking so you can see real change in your game. You’ll measure your current technique and process, so you have an accurate starting point. From there, you’ll apply your new knowledge of skills with training. I highly recommend working with a coach during this training or training with Christina through her PGA Coach Program: https://www.morepars.com/online-coaching/

Are you ready for GIRs? Let’s get to it!

    I share popular physical reasons why your butt move may be limited. Our brain needs to be able to turn on the butt muscles and if it can't you need to find out why.

  • Drill to Groove Hip Flexion using Toolbox

    The Butt Move is hip flexion. I do not like using the term hips because then players oftentimes just spin their hips which is the very last thing you want to do. Instead we need to engage the butt muscles. This drill using Martin’s awesome Toolbox helps get you there.

  • Are Ya Knee Diving?

    If you want more pars, let's identify if you're a knee diver. If you are, we need to fix ASAP because it shuts off your butt and core. If that happens you will not be able to leverage the ground pressure and most likely just move your mass.

    If you want more pars, but you're really struggling with contact. You top and chunk your shots. Your low point is all over the place, then let's take a look at your shoulders throughout the swing. They play a key role in helping you get through the shot.

    – Play in synchronicity (right brain vs left brain)
