508 Premium: Stillness. Shaping Shots Trajectory. #2 of 4 with Jim Venetos

508 Premium: In the second of our four part series with golf instructor Jim Venetos, we dig deeper into his method of “Stillness” by discussing where you should have the ball positioned for each club during your swing, what type of trajectory is optimum for this method, and how to shape your shots so that you utilize a draw, fade, or straight shot. Now that, like thousands of his student, you’re getting the hang of this new swing and seeing positive results in your practice sessions, in our next episode, we’ll discuss taking your game from the driving range to the golf course. Need a little more explanation and want to see what he’s talking about? Here’s the link to Jim’s video tip that is a Golf Smarter exclusive.

507 Premium: Fine Tuning Your Swing During the Off-Season with Jim Venetos

507: Jim Venetos returns to amplify his teaching method of body stillness during the swing. Golf Smarter Host Fred Greene has suffered a leg injury and is not going to be able to play golf for a number of weeks. Jim says that injuring his right leg was injuring the correct leg because there’s no movement required from the right leg during the swing, and that 70% of your weight is shifted to the left leg during the swing.  While recovering, Fred has decided to record four short episodes with Jim that will be published over the next few weeks.

506 Premium: Golf Courses Don't Have To Be Harder To Be Better with Course Designer David McLay Kidd

506 Premium: Golf Course Architect David McLay Kidd designed the first course at Bandon Dunes to be like the courses he grew up with in Scotland. But he also wants to create golf courses that provide the amateur golfer with hope, not frustration. David tells us how he got the bug by spending a lot of time learning and working with his father, golf course superintendent Jimmy Kidd. He also shares his design philosophies, and how the average player can take advantage of his layouts for their own success.

505 Premium: The Keys to Solid Contact with Jim Venetos

505 Premium: Too many golfers are frustrated with conventional golf instruction because of complicated nuances. Jim Venetos was a highly accomplished Junior golfer who worked with many Top 100 instructors who weren’t able to explain what made him such a successful and excellent ball striker. Luckily for us, Jim has become a very articulate and patient instructor whose simple method will have immediate results for you. His primary teaching includes 70/30 weight shift to the front foot and stillness in your entire body that will have you hitting the ball farther with a consistent draw using less effort.  He also provides us with an exclusive video tip on “The Keys To Solid Contact” which is at the end of this episode and also a video on our YouTube channel.

Note from host Fred Greene: I’ve torn the muscle in my right calf and will probably not be playing golf for a couple of months during my recovery & rehab. This may mean that I will not be doing any interviews for awhile, or I could re-run old episodes. Do you have a preference? Hiatus or Reruns? If reruns, what would you like to hear? Write me!
