Performance Friday: PGA Professional B.J. Hathaway

Unless you’re one of the experts giving these lessons, you could probably use a little help with your golf game. The weekend is coming and that means it’s time to play some golf! It also means it would be in your best interest to brush up on your game or face the consequences and ridicule from the other members of your foursome.

Fret not, hackers, duffers and less-than-good golfers of the world, Back9Network is here to help. This week’s Performance Friday comes courtesy of PGA Professional B.J. Hathaway at Augusta Golf Instruction. 

Pingpong Drill
“This is going to be a good little exercise if you tend to be a massive flipper.” 

Don’t Roll the Clubface Back to Square
“Rolling the clubface square creates a lot of problems with timing.” 

The Balance and Pivot Drill
“This is a drill designed to help you folks who have a tendency on the backswing to take your hips out toward the golf ball or on the downswing to take your hips out toward the golf ball. This causes shanks and over-hooks.” 

Airplane Drill
“This drill is designed to create more stability in your pivot, help you feel a more pure turn, how to be more balanced and how to make a more full turn.” 

Check back every Friday for a new batch of the best golf tips on the web to help you get ready for the weekend. May your drives be straight and your tales be tall.
