EOGA tip of the week

 
with David Gerhardi (EOGA Steenberg)

The stick drill

We can use the 3 Stick Drill for creating a draw pattern for irons.

These alignment sticks help with setup, as well as how to come in on the inside of the ball, with the club face aiming just right of target.

To hit the draw:

1 - Setup: club just right of target line.

 
 
2 - Getting wrists to take club inside the wrist line.
 
 
3 - Getting club to swing towards right alignment (downswing).
 
 
4 – Release: parallel to red stick.

You’ve come this far, now get closer

 
 
 
 
Crisp contact each time
When you’re within 100 metres, you want to get your ball as close to the flag as possible. A more forgiving wedge makes it easier to do that. Cleveland’s new CBX 2 is that more forgiving wedge.

The CBX 2 will get you there.
 
 
 
 
Trust your wedge
Most amateur golfers hit the ball near the toe. They know what it’s like to see their ball fall short and right of the green. But with a sweet spot that extends to the toe, the CBX 2 makes it easier for you to trust your club.
 
Stick it to the flag.
At the end of a round, take your wedges to the practice green and check your shot dispersion.
 
 
Sizing up the sweet spot
A bigger sweet spot gives you better distance control because it makes the club more forgiving, making you more consistent. A heavy weight placed in the toe of the CBX 2 Wedge increases its MOI and perimeter weighting for extra forgiveness.
 
Let’s go greenside and get you closer to the flag
If you want to have more fun around the greens improving your wedge play is key. Let’s get out on the course together and help you do both.

Fix par 3 mistakes

 
 
 
Many golfers fall short of par 3 greens because they select a club based on a perfect shot. But perfect shots are rare.
 
 
What matters more; hitting a good spot on the green or the number club you took to hit it?
 
 
 

There are four distances you should consider on each par 3. The distance to the front edge, back edge and middle of the green, and how far you hit each club in your bag.

Knowing these numbers and considering the size of the green makes it easier to select the best club for the shot.
 
 
 
Never hit a hard number to reach the front edge of the green. Because if you don’t get all of it, you will land short. If a perfect strike with a specific club gets you to the back edge of the green, that’s a better option. Your swing should stay more or less consistent. It’s the club that really adds or reduces the required distance.

 
Next time you’re on the range take ten shots with the same club at the same target and note your average distance and dispersion.

 
Better course management
Swing improvement takes time, but good strategy brings immediate results. We’ll help you make better decisions on the golf course that will put you into more scoring positions.
