So another place that people get too technical
00:06
is around the green.
00:08
You really should be a lot more athletic
00:09
and artistic around the green,
00:11
try and visualize your shots.
00:13
When you get too technical,
00:14
it's more of an internal cue.
00:17
You get too tight with your wrists and your arms,
00:19
and you're unable to release the club properly;
00:21
and therefore it takes away your touch and feel.
00:24
I'd much prefer you to use an external cue,
00:26
which would be trying to get the club
00:28
really light on the way back.
00:29
That will get your arms swinging
00:31
and get the wrists hinging naturally.
00:33
From there it'll be a pendulum motion,
00:35
and the club will be able to bottom out
00:37
under the golf ball at the right place every time.
00:48
If you can think more externally around the green,
00:50
you'll be far more athletic;
00:51
and you'll definitely hit better shots.
