I just returned from the Ryder Cup and what a great event to see.  (I didn’t go on the last day so don’t blame me.)  It is like college football combined with golf as the cheering for every hole won by the U. S.team is unbelievable.  I also got up to Milwaukeeto spend time with Manuel de la Torre and I want to improve something I wrote in my September Newsletter.  It would be better to say that the golfer should have an intention to return the club on the grass 3 inches IN FRONT OF the ball.  I wrote that you should return the club ahead of the ball and one could return the club ahead of the ball slightly to the left of or to the right of the target line.  The whole club should be returned directly IN FRONT OF the ball on the grass and it should be square.  The golfer should have the intention to do this right from the end of the backswing.  It was very noticeable that all of the Pros at the Ryder Cup would brush the grass in front of the ball on their wedge shots from those short bent grass fairways at Medinah and this is something that you can practice and do also.


Please call (727) 692-4679 or email, jh@johnhayesgolf.com, with your questions or comments.  I hope to see you soon at the Chi Chi Golf Range & Family Sports Complex inClearwater,Florida.
