Swing Sequence

Generating power in the golf swing is easier than it seems. Most of us can use the motions that we learned in other sports to add yardage to our shots.

The two main keys are amount of rotation and timing it to match the impact of the golf ball. These motions are not unique to golf. Pitchers use them to gain ball speed. Batters hit home runs the same way.

Notice Jordan Spieth's swing sequence below. You'll see that his shoulders turn 90 degrees away from the ball, and his hips are half of that, at 45 degrees. Then, at the key moment of impact, his hips have outrun his shoulders, and are 45 degrees ahead of the ball. This type of sequence, used by all great golfers, creates a whip-like effect to produce maximum club speed at impact.

Stay Well For Life

Staying well for life means having a healthy Body, Mind, and Heart.

To have a healthy Body, players eat healthy foods, exercise, and warm up before activities to avoid injury.

Characteristics of a healthy Mind include making good choices about club and shot selection, the ability to analyze your swing and game, and using pre/post-shot routines to stay focused.

Healthy Hearts are able to control anger and feel more confident in situations on and off the course.

These concepts and learned and reinforced throughout The First Tee program. A player must put them all together in order to certify Eagle level.
Have you seen the rule changes for next year? There are some big differences coming up...

2019 Rule: Under Rule 18.2, the time for a ball search (before the ball becomes lost) will be reduced from 5 minutes to 3 minutes.

Reasons for Change:

Limiting the search period to 3 minutes is more consistent with the underlying principle that golf is to be played in a prompt and continuous way, without long pauses in play.

In most cases, if the ball is going to be found, it will be found within the first 3 minutes.

Although this change may increase the number of lost balls, on average the overall impact should be to speed up play.

Knowing that the search time is limited to 3 minutes should encourage players to play a provisional ball when they believe there is a chance their ball may not be found.
