631: Phil Mickleson’s coach, Dave Pelz, may be the most recognized short game instructor in golf today. Part of his mastery comes from being a physicist who loves golf, the other is that he possesses one of the most spectacular practice areas in his backyard that you’ll ever see. In Part 1 of our conversation with Dave, we discuss how having a backyard practice area has improved both his game and his family life. When he was on Golf Smarter last April (episode 586), Dave introduced Host Fred Greene to an outdoor practice product called SynLawn. As we record this episode Fred’s new 5 hole putting green/chipping area installed by SynLawn Bay Area is being completed. Up next week, Dave returns to provide us with drills, games, and advice on how to best utilize your home practice to impact your scores on the course.
This week on the Golf Smarter Academy, Dustin from Ohio has done a lot to improve his swing, but can’t seem to stop his head from moving back and forward during his swing. Also, his backswing is just too long. Can our Academy Professor, Tony Manzoni help? What do you think? Let us help you! Submit your question by calling toll free 415-761-1498.
