If you struggle with initiating your downswing then today's episode is just what the doctor ordered.  Josh Boggs is back to talk in detail about the importance of starting your downswing with a lateral hip movement.

to start your downswing

 

EPISODE FEATURED GUEST: JOSH BOGGS

Josh went to New Mexico State for their PGM program. He is the head golf professional at Westchester Golf Course. He’s US Kids Golf and Seemore Putter Institute certified.

IN THIS PODCAST EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

  • Josh does a monthly Q & A session: http://boggspga.com/questionsforjosh/

  • How to achieve lateral hip slide-after you get to the top of your backswing, and you start to swing the club down, Josh is a big proponent of laterally moving your hip to your left (if right handed) and have weight forward on impact. Use an alignment stick.See episode 6 on his website for the full tutorial

  • After you’ve conquered the lateral hip motion, then you can start to add speed.

  • Be set up to the golf ball, bump your left hip out before taking a swing, then take a very small swing (a little less than a half swing)-the distance you hit it will surprise you!

  • It’s not just about the quick tip or a how to do a drill; it’s also about the “why”

  • When you shoot down-the-line vidoes, make sure it’s at the same height and angle every time

  • Consider getting the V1 app for some easy golf swing analysis

George is here to share his mentality on how to play your own game as well as some of his favorite drills and practice routines that he uses to get himself tournament ready.

EPISODE FEATURED GUEST: GEORGE ROY

If you’ve ever seen any of his YouTube videos, George will literally hit a ball through a door with every club in his bag. He’s a PGA certified instructor out of St. Augustine, Florida and he shares a ton of competition practice drills and a great philosophy about playing your game.

IN THIS PODCAST EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

  • There always has to be a certain belief in yourself.

  • George’s favorite quote: “Just do it.”-Nike’s slogan.

  • Try to find the positive in every situation to keep yourself to your own game.

  • Why and how George’s speciality is the short game.

  • George’s 50/60/70 Drill: You hit 50% of your fairways minimum, from that 50%, you have to hit at least 60% on the greens. On the ones that you don’t hit the green, you have to hit 70% of your up and downs.

  • The Clock Drill: what does the back swing do? It stores energy. The further back you take the club, the more natural acceleration you’ll achieve. Once you get a feel for taking the proper length of a back swing, you’ll hit the ball closer to the target every time.

  • That watching highlights of certain players can be a great education.

  • That the level of touch is one of the hardest things for golfers to grasp

  • Don’t always try to fix things for yourself

  • Go-to practice drill: circle of victory: Make 3 and 4 footers around the hole. Then go out 6 feet out, then 9 feet, and so on. It will help you learn the various speeds and reads of the green.

  • George’s book recommendation: Really any goal-oriented books but specifically:

  • George’s parting piece of guidance
