Here’s a simple howto for hitting the golf ball with a cigarette in your mouth.

What does this do for your swing?

Basically, it allows you to balance your swing. If you are not in balance, you will most likely lose the cigarette during your swing.

Famous golfer, Ben Hogan used to do this in practice AND in competition.

You can swap a golf pencil or anything similar if you don’t smoke cigarettes. But cigarettes work the best since they can be easily broken.

Today’s Swing Keys Video by Junger Woods

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

Here’s the swing keys for today on video:

1. Really feel the shoulders and large muscles do the work on your backswing. What do I mean? You can only feel this is your grip is very very light. In other words, grip light and try to feel your left shoulder turn on the backswing.

2. On the downswing, really try to feel that your stomach is controlling the arms and the hands.

P.S. I didn’t hit a good shot on the video but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a good swing key. So go ahead and try it next time you are on the range, not on the course.

On the course, you should play to score, never try to fix your swing on the golf course. If you are hitting it left consistently on the course, don’t fix your swing, simply aim more right. This might be the best lesson for today.

Today’s Swing Keys

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Today, I hit the ball like crazy. I mean, I hit the ball so good, it was like cheese melting in my mouth. I hit the ball so good maybe it was even better than sex.

Anyways, here’s my swing thoughts for the day:

On the backswing, really feel the large muscles of your shoulders turn automatically since your hand pressure is so light.

On the downswing, try to really get your shoulders and belly to turn in sync and swing slightly inside out while trying to hold your body straight.

Confusing?

Try this for beginners:

1. Grip the club very light.

2. Feel your large muscles turning on the backswing.

3. Feel like you are holding a basketball and doing a two handed pass on the downswing.

4. Move your lower body and belly at the same speed as your shoulders.

5. Use your lower body and shoulders to hit the ball, not arms or hands.

P.S. One more thang…rhythm…rhythm…rhythm…

HOWTO Practice with 1 golf ball

Here’s HOWTO practice with 1 golf ball.

Really, you will need to get a 60 degree lob wedge, put weight on your heels, hit about 1/8 inch behind the ball, then you will need to really keep steady and make a nice smooth shot with super light hands and also keep your finish short so you can get your right hand out to catch the ball.

Magic Golf Trick – HOWTO Catch A Golf Ball After You Hit It

Here’s a HOWTO on catching your golf ball AFTER you hit it.

1. Open the clubface so it’s pointing behind you about -10 degrees.

2. Really feel like you are sitting down.

3. Get wristy and loose with your hands.

4. Make a nice swing and catch the ball.

The key here is to hit the ‘bounce’ of the sand wedge. (Oh yes, you can use Lob wedge or Sand wedge for this shot) while making a smooth swing.

If you can do this, send me a video so I can post it on my site.

Junger Woods Swing Tips – The Low-Bullet Slice Shot

Junger Woods Swing Tips - The Low-Bullet Slice Shot

Click Here to View in Full Screen Mode

This is probably my favorite arsenal in my bag. You’ve probably seen Tiger on the practice tee showing off this shot too.

It’s a low-bullet slice shot. It’s great for hitting around the trees. The ball will take off very fast at about 90mph and then curve quickly at the end to the right.

Here’s how to hit it:

1. Get a 2 or 3 iron.

2. Open your stance about 30 degrees to the left. (The amount you open depends on how much curve you want on the ball. This must be acquired by practice and feel.)

3. Open your clubface about 30 degrees to the right. (same as above)

4. Put the ball in the center or back of your stance. (This depends on how low you want the ball to start. But don’t put the ball too far back, otherwise you will end up hitting down on the ball and put too much backspin which will make it go up.)

5. Rhythm is everything. Swing nice and easy about 3/4 or 1/2 swing. (A knock-down shot basically…)

P.S. You don’t have to hit down on the ball. Actually you want to sweep the ball like a Driver or a 3 Wood. The reason is again that you don’t want to hit down on the ball. That will cause extra backspin which will make your ball flight rise and beats the whole purpose of trying to hit a “low-bullet” slice shot.

You can practice this shot by trying to hit at driving range poles, yard markers, etc…etc…

Junger Woods Swing Tips – The dreaded 60 yard wedge

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

The 60 yard wedge is probably the hardest for regular joe golfers. This is the shot I practice the most. This IS the shot that Tiger practices most too. (and probably more than 50% of the tour players)

The difference between Tiger and rest of the tour player is that he can hit the 60 yard fade and the draw. He will be able to work the ball even though he’s not hitting it far.

Well here’s simple guideline for practicing your 60 yard wedge:

1. keep your golf grip super light for distance control

2. Rhythm, rhythm, and rhythm

3. Try to hit it in the middle or slightly inside of your sand wedge.

4. Try to hit the ball only, no divot for super control. Whenever you make a big divot, you are inviting dirt into your clubface grooves, which causes your ball to either:

- bounce too much after landing

- fly too long

5. It’s just a smaller version of your full swing. Master this shot and it will help all other parts of your ball striking.

6. If this helped you, leave a comment! :)

P.S. Youtube video might be hard to see, but that ball landed 5 feet from the pin.
