Performance Friday: PGA Professional David Cahill

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 David Cahill.

Hitting Out of Long Rough
“First of all […] lay back the club to use the bounce. Play the ball further back in [your] stance so it’s easier to hit down on the ball.”

Playing From Side Hill Lies
“Because the ground is closer to me, I need to choke down. […] It’s also going to make the toe of the club be more up in the air. When the toe is in the air, it’s going to make the ball go left of the target.” 

Play Smarter Golf
“Club selection and planning ahead is key to playing smart golf.”

Chipping With Ease
“We take out all of the excess motion. So instead of using our wrists during this swing, or use our arms to make the club go back and forth, all we’re going to do is connect our arms to our torso and rotate.” 

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.
