  • 10:23

  • I don't personally know you all that

  • 10:25

  • 10:27

  • just realizing like this guy is

  • 10:30

  • travelling videotaping and you've done

  • 10:33

  • it for years like where did you you're

  • 10:37

  • probably the most passionate person I've

  • 10:39

  • seen about golf where where did that

  • 10:43

  • passion begin well I didn't I played

  • 10:47

  • golf like I took a series of three

  • 10:49

  • lessons when I was 16 but like it didn't

  • 10:52

  • catch like at all like I went to was an

  • 10:55

  • indoor place and and I took the lessons

  • 10:57

  • and and it just like like didn't do

  • 11:00

  • anything for me I played baseball in

  • 11:02

  • high school and and done some other

  • 11:05

  • sports but like golf really was like

  • 11:08

  • almost like a nothing to me like I

  • 11:09

  • didn't think about it at all my brother

  • 11:11

  • was a caddie at Philadelphia Cricket

  • 11:14

  • Club and he was big into it so that was

  • 11:17

  • like that was like his thing and but I I

  • 11:19

  • really I had never even played on the

  • 11:21

  • golf course I took those that series of

  • 11:23

  • three lessons which actually at 16 Oh

  • 11:26

  • and I think later on that ended up

  • 11:28

  • helping me like having that little bit

  • 11:30

  • of like you know grip stance super basic

  • 11:34

  • things but I totally forgot about golf

  • 11:37

  • completely and then I went to college

  • 11:39

  • and then I moved out here from

  • 11:40

  • Philadelphia to California to try to get

  • 11:43

  • a job in like the film and TV business

  • 11:45

  • and wet while I was first out here I had

  • 11:49

  • like I had nothing going on like nothing

  • 11:52

  • at all like I would there was nobody

  • 11:54

  • looking for whatever skills I was

  • 11:56

  • bringing which were like very little

  • 11:58

  • anyway so um so I was spending all day

  • 12:01

  • just waiting for people to return my

  • 12:04

  • calls about jobs or whatever you know

  • 12:06

  • and and this is like you know for like a

  • 12:08

  • year I was just like you know just wait

  • 12:10

  • trying to get a job trying to get my

  • 12:12

  • foot in the door at a place so I ended

  • 12:15

  • up to kill time I used to go over to the

  • 12:20

  • there was

  • 12:20

  • golf course near where I was living in

  • 12:22

  • Arcadia and I would just my roommate or

  • 12:26

  • a guy that it used to live where I was

  • 12:28

  • living had left a putter and like a

  • 12:31

  • wedge so I used to go over there and

  • 12:32

  • just putt because you could putt and

  • 12:34

  • chip around there for free so I would

  • 12:37

  • just you know just in doing that and

  • 12:40

  • killing it try it like killing time

  • 12:42

  • doing that like all the sudden like

  • 12:43

  • before I knew it like I got like really

  • 12:45

  • really like badly hooked on golf like

  • 12:49

  • real like really intensely and just yeah

  • 12:54

  • just from trip it just from chipping and

  • 12:56

  • putty and then if it got late in the day

  • 12:57

  • like you could like you could like

  • 12:59

  • scrape some balls back and then like you

  • 13:01

  • know you'd whack those or whatever but

  • 13:03

  • uh yeah that was it and then my brother

  • 13:06

  • who the one who would he wanted me to

  • 13:09

  • get he wanted me to become like a golf

  • 13:12

  • addict so that he'd have somebody to

  • 13:14

  • play with he lives in Virginia so my

  • 13:16

  • brother sent me a hundred dollars in any

  • 13:18

  • said like hey you can only use this on

  • 13:19

  • golf so I went out and played like like

  • 13:22

  • four times or something with that

  • 13:23

  • hundred dollars and by the end of it I

  • 13:25

  • was just like super into it so then so

  • 13:29

  • then I kept pretty close to the time

  • 13:33

  • that I first started playing golf this

  • 13:35

  • is when when I was like 23 or 24 I made

  • 13:40

  • a deal with some guys that I had met at

  • 13:42

  • the golf show to where I would make some

  • 13:46

  • video commercials for their business it

  • 13:49

  • was like an indoor golf teaching

  • 13:51

  • business so I would make some

  • 13:52

  • commercials for them and in return they

  • 13:54

  • would give me some some lessons and they

  • 13:56

  • would let me practice at their spot this

  • 13:58

  • is a place pub yeah so which is the

  • 14:00

  • place called golf excellence and and the

  • 14:03

  • same thing was going on like then like I

  • 14:05

  • actually I had some like TV jobs or

  • 14:07

  • whatever but like when you work in TV

  • 14:08

  • then now - it's like you work like solid

  • 14:12

  • for like two weeks and then you might

  • 14:13

  • not work for like a month you know and

  • 14:15

  • so so then I would so when they gave it

  • 14:20

  • like I don't know if they realized when

  • 14:22

  • they made this deal that I would be

  • 14:23

  • allowed to practice there that I would

  • 14:24

  • basically be there like constantly so um

  • 14:27

  • I was I was there for like literally

  • 14:30

  • like five six hours a day like all the

  • 14:32

  • time like

  • 14:34

  • when it opened and and and it was one of

  • 14:36

  • those systems I really liked and I think

  • 14:37

  • this is a great way for people who are

  • 14:38

  • first first learning off where you would

  • 14:41

  • you would hit the ball and then you'd

  • 14:42

  • look back and you'd see your swing

  • 14:43

  • replayed like again right away

  • 14:45

  • kind of like golf tech has now but a

  • 14:47

  • little different and then so then and

  • 14:50

  • they were giving me lessons too so I got

  • 14:52

  • kind of off to a pretty quick start with

  • 14:54

  • with golf where I was getting a pretty

  • 14:57

  • good foundation and then that's really

  • 15:01

  • how it began I was really just bitten by

  • 15:04

  • the goth bug pretty bad so it was

  • 15:07

  • basically after you moved out to

  • 15:08

  • California after college you you kind of

  • 15:13

  • started getting into it so really wasn't

  • 15:15

  • after after college yeah yeah and people

  • 15:18

  • always like I think there's a huge

  • 15:20

  • difference between how you have to learn

  • 15:21

  • golf for the type of person who learn

  • 15:24

  • golf basically like the dividing point

  • 15:25

  • is like puberty

  • 15:26

  • so if you tried to learn golf before

  • 15:29

  • before puberty yeah that's like a

  • 15:32

  • totally different way to learn golf then

  • 15:34

  • you should after because when you're

  • 15:37

  • learning how to ride a bike and you're

  • 15:38

  • learning how to use a pencil and you're

  • 15:40

  • learning how to do all you know to

  • 15:43

  • tennis for the first time do all these

  • 15:45

  • different things for the first time

  • 15:46

  • you're also learning golf for the first

  • 15:47

  • time like your brains like ready for

  • 15:49

  • that you know but if you're trying to

  • 15:51

  • learn it it like I did like it 24 years

  • 15:53

  • old or even at like 17 or 18 years old

  • 15:57

  • for the first time that's totally

  • 15:59

  • different and the thing about golf is

  • 16:01

  • that if you look at golf is taught not I

  • 16:05

  • would say like 95 percent of the people

  • 16:07

  • who teach goff are people who learned

  • 16:10

  • like 12 years old or younger and 95% of

  • 16:15

  • the people who take golf lessons are

  • 16:17

  • people who first took up golf 12 years

  • 16:20

  • old or older you know but they're to me

  • 16:23

  • very different ways to to that you have

  • 16:26

  • to go about it and I've always been

  • 16:28

  • fascinated by golfers who did learn at a

  • 16:32

  • late age late like weiyang or Larry

  • 16:36

  • Nelson weiyang learned supposedly at

  • 16:39

  • like 22 or something I don't know if

  • 16:41

  • that's true but he was like he was like

  • 16:43

  • a powerlifter something that converted

  • 16:44

  • to golf and then like he became like a

  • 16:46

  • champion golfer right

  • 16:47

  • Larry Nelson learned after the Marine

  • 16:49

  • Corps and Lee Trevino apparently learned

  • 16:54

  • learns late but I think he was doing it

  • 16:56

  • kind of yeah yeah was a kid he wasn't he

  • 16:59

  • a cab not sure but like people use him

  • 17:01

  • as an example of but like a late bloomer

  • 17:03

  • that did he was definitely like one of

  • 17:05

  • the like the most famous like goth

  • 17:07

  • hustlers but I just don't know the age

  • 17:09

  • that that was in because he was in the

  • 17:11

  • Marine Corps as well and I think there

  • 17:13

  • was something like with that so I always

  • 17:14

  • been interested in those guys who were

  • 17:16

  • able to like still do it at a really

  • 17:18

  • high level and especially here in

  • 17:21

  • California so it's probably like this in

  • 17:23

  • Tampa as well but there's a lot of

  • 17:26

  • people who move to this area to just

  • 17:28

  • like they've done other things and now

  • 17:30

  • they want to become like full-time

  • 17:31

  • lawyer like pro golfers you know and a

  • 17:34

  • lot of these people were have athletes

  • 17:38

  • and other things or kind of dabbled in

  • 17:42

  • golf but are now like getting serious

  • 17:43

  • into it it's just like such a crazy hill

  • 17:46

  • to climb if you're to be like at that

  • 17:49

  • elite level if you didn't pick it up to

  • 17:52

  • like say like your 20s or even your late

  • 17:54

  • teens very tough right right oh yeah for

  • 17:58

  • sure and I you know we I played with a

  • 18:00

  • guy who played on you know what's now

  • 18:02

  • called that the corner ferry tour and he

  • 18:06

  • was a club champion at this at this

  • 18:09

  • place that I played at with my buddy my

  • 18:11

  • buddy was a member there and I would

  • 18:12

  • play with them a lot and I think he was

  • 18:16

  • like top like I don't know like diving

  • 18:19

  • driving one when he was playing and he

  • 18:26

  • was lights out and his and his short

  • 18:29

  • game was like he had a like a 40-yard

  • 18:33

  • bunker shot and this thing came out so

  • 18:36

  • low I was like I really did it and you

  • 18:40

  • know like nine and I was like geez how

  • 18:42

  • did this guy not make it like he he

  • 18:45

  • bombs it over 300 yards he's got a short

  • 18:47

  • game like the Hat and like he couldn't

  • 18:49

  • even make it on you know the bitter corn

  • 18:53

  • ferry or at the it was called web.com or

  • 18:56

  • whatever and he couldn't make it you

  • 18:59

  • know it's it's amazing

  • 19:01

  • like the level of play that you have to

  • 19:04

  • have to be on like the PGA Tour is just

  • 19:07

  • insane yeah but I think a lot of a lot

  • 19:11

  • of a lot of people who play other sports

  • 19:13

  • they think the other athletes are pretty

  • 19:18

  • annoying when it comes to Goff actually

  • 19:20

  • because like they come from other sports

  • 19:23

  • let's say basketball or football or like

  • 19:25

  • anything like those those sports are

  • 19:28

  • hockey and they think like well golf has

  • 19:31

  • never seen an athlete before it means

  • 19:34

  • like I'm a great athlete and if I get

  • 19:37

  • into golf like you know everybody in

  • 19:39

  • golf they're just like these like nerds

  • 19:41

  • that are that are like got really good

  • 19:43

  • at this like skill of golf but if if you

  • 19:45

  • put that kind of drive into you know

  • 19:48

  • like a high tune racecar like my

  • 19:50

  • athletic you know skill body like I'm

  • 19:53

  • gonna be you know they just never saw an

  • 19:54

  • athlete like this before but that's not

  • 19:56

  • really what it takes to be like there's

  • 19:59

  • Charles Barkley and and a list a huge

  • 20:03

  • mountain of amazing athletes they cannot

  • 20:06

  • play golf at all it it's really almost

  • 20:10

  • like godlike athletic ability is like

  • 20:14

  • very very small amount of what you need

  • 20:17

  • to be like a really good golfer I would

  • 20:18

  • say there's a lot of guys on the PGA

  • 20:19

  • Tour not like real like athletic or you

  • 20:23

  • you just watch them in general and it

  • 20:25

  • would be like clumsy or uncoordinated in

  • 20:28

  • general but like super sharp with golf

  • 20:30

  • you know that that's it's kind of like

  • 20:33

  • because some of these guys think that

  • 20:36

  • they can just like oh now that now that

  • 20:37

  • I'm putting my mind to I you know I got

  • 20:39

  • a really good level at basketball or

  • 20:41

  • baseball or whatever was now I'm putting

  • 20:43

  • my mind to golf like it's only gonna

  • 20:44

  • take me like couple years and I'm gonna

  • 20:46

  • be like top of the nuke just like goes

  • 20:48

  • on that no not really

  • 20:50

  • but but there is there like my friend of

  • 20:52

  • mine Milo lines who's a golf teaches a

  • 20:55

  • lot of Tour Pros there's a guy oh yeah

  • 20:59

  • yeah I saw the video he teaches the guy

  • 21:01

  • that was a pitcher in the major leagues

  • 21:03

  • and now this guy is winning mini Tour

  • 21:07

  • events pretty which is pretty cool like

  • 21:10

  • he's a really good golfer and he's like

  • 21:12

  • actually he's not doing it through like

  • 21:14

  • we saw like

  • 21:15

  • like professionals like even John Smoltz

  • 21:18

  • and other other guys like are winning on

  • 21:20

  • kind of like this celebrity circuit like

  • 21:21

  • that Tahoe band stuff like that this

  • 21:23

  • guy's going through to these mini Tour

  • 21:25

  • events he's actually you know paying

  • 21:27

  • whatever the $750 a day or whatever it

  • 21:29

  • is and winning money from other from

  • 21:32

  • other guys who were like you know trying

  • 21:33

  • to get up through it so I just yeah it

  • 21:37

  • meets a level of golf requires a level

  • 21:40

  • of humility that a lot of athletes

  • 21:41

  • aren't really used to yeah gotcha gotcha

  • 21:45

  • all right so let's let's talk briefly

  • 21:48

  • here about like be better golf like when

  • 21:51

  • did you start the channel what was like

  • 21:54

  • you know did you just come up with this

  • 21:55

  • thing like gosh you know what I should

  • 21:57

  • just start this well I was I was always

  • 22:00

  • like watching so many youtube golf

  • 22:03

  • videos like all the time I was watching

  • 22:05

  • YouTube goth videos you know there

  • 22:09

  • weren't that many like I started be

  • 22:11

  • better golf I think in like 2015 or 16

  • 22:14

  • or the end of may be like March of 2015

  • 22:17

  • March of 2016 I think and so I was

  • 22:22

  • watching like and I had always thought

  • 22:24

  • of because I have this like big passion

  • 22:27

  • for golf and then also like

  • 22:28

  • professionally like I'm real skilled at

  • 22:30

  • like making videos and stuff that's like

  • 22:32

  • what I do for my regular job and and I

  • 22:35

  • always thought about putting these two

  • 22:36

  • things together about thought about like

  • 22:39

  • an interview show where I would like

  • 22:41

  • travel around interviewing different

  • 22:42

  • people about golf and then and I never

  • 22:45

  • really I never really took any action on

  • 22:47

  • that I did I did sometimes like I had a

  • 22:51

  • UT like if you go way back in my youtube

  • 22:52

  • channel I would every once in a while

  • 22:55

  • put up like like a golf thought or

  • 22:57

  • something like that or or I actually won

  • 23:00

  • a contest there was this training aid

  • 23:02

  • called the Gosling shirt I don't know if

  • 23:04

  • you've seen it like you put it on like

  • 23:05

  • this they had a contest like to to show

  • 23:09

  • show yourself using and make a video of

  • 23:11

  • yourself using it and I put up a video

  • 23:13

  • about it and I won the contest with my

  • 23:16

  • video and I got to play around the golf

  • 23:18

  • at Trump national with Padraig

  • 23:20

  • Harrington which was really cool yeah

  • 23:22

  • and you he was like a really good guy

  • 23:25

  • and a it was funny too because he taught

  • 23:28

  • he gave

  • 23:29

  • this tip when I was playing that day and

  • 23:32

  • I was thinking like what like you're not

  • 23:34

  • supposed to do that in the golf swing

  • 23:35

  • what like that doesn't make sense and

  • 23:38

  • that was kind of gotten the gears moving

  • 23:40

  • in my head about like all right I've

  • 23:42

  • been hearing there's one thing about the

  • 23:44

  • golf swing forever which was like you

  • 23:46

  • know hold the leg or whatever and

  • 23:47

  • Padraig Harrington was telling me

  • 23:49

  • basically to do the opposite and I was

  • 23:51

  • like but that's not what I see when I

  • 23:54

  • look at slow motion videos so I was

  • 23:56

  • watching a in particular I was watching

  • 23:59

  • videos so I kind of forget about it for

  • 24:01

  • a little while but then I was watching

  • 24:02

  • videos from Monty shine bloom a guy that

  • 24:05

  • I've had on my channel home on a whole

  • 24:06

  • bunch really great great instructor and

  • 24:09

  • I was watching videos from him and it

  • 24:11

  • was one of some of the first videos that

  • 24:12

  • he he was putting up regularly at Oak

  • 24:16

  • Creek the golf course he works at and he

  • 24:18

  • was saying a lot of counterintuitive

  • 24:20

  • things like Padraig Harrington headset

  • 24:22

  • and that just didn't like that was like

  • 24:25

  • I was sending flips in my brain and I

  • 24:27

  • was like writing comments in the in the

  • 24:29

  • youtube comment section I was like I

  • 24:30

  • would like have so many questions but

  • 24:33

  • then every time you get a question

  • 24:34

  • answered it would be like you know

  • 24:37

  • results in like three more questions so

  • 24:38

  • I was like you know I should just go

  • 24:39

  • down there and like videotape him so so

  • 24:42

  • I so I did so I asked him and he said

  • 24:44

  • sure and I said I just sent him an email

  • 24:49

  • and usually I was I was like I'm

  • 24:50

  • thinking about starting to this new show

  • 24:51

  • I like interviewer he was like short so

  • 24:53

  • I went down there and you see like my

  • 24:56

  • first videos I wasn't really that good

  • 24:57

  • at it or at all but um but I had this

  • 25:01

  • kind of like I was kind of like a very

  • 25:03

  • frustrated golfer and Noah Kelly kind of

  • 25:05

  • angry as well so I would like ask them

  • 25:07

  • questions of like what this guy says

  • 25:09

  • this and you say this and this guy's and

  • 25:11

  • like I was trying to make these things

  • 25:14

  • that people always talk about you know

  • 25:16

  • these these things that never match you

  • 25:20

  • know one teacher says this and another

  • 25:21

  • teacher says that and I was trying to be

  • 25:23

  • like there's a you know for a while like

  • 25:25

  • for a long time people used to think

  • 25:26

  • like oh there's a secret there's a

  • 25:28

  • secret to golf and just the pros and the

  • 25:31

  • good players just don't want you to know

  • 25:32

  • it and I was almost like I was I was

  • 25:35

  • almost like getting to be like half in

  • 25:37

  • that camp because that was I had reached

  • 25:39

  • a certain level of golf and I just felt

  • 25:41

  • like it wasn't getting any better

  • 25:42

  • and I was desperate desperate to get

  • 25:45

  • better that's why I just called it

  • 25:46

  • because I was like as I was like I'm not

  • 25:48

  • looking for that's the whole thing about

  • 25:49

  • be better golf was like I'm not looking

  • 25:51

  • for like a tip to - you know shave a

  • 25:54

  • little bit off of here or to get it get

  • 25:56

  • a little bit you know of a moron playing

  • 25:59

  • there like I'm just because when I would

  • 26:01

  • play in these amateur tournaments it

  • 26:03

  • wasn't that this guy did something

  • 26:05

  • better than me or some others better

  • 26:08

  • than he was just a better golfer I was

  • 26:09

  • like yeah that's what I want I just want

  • 26:10

  • to in general be a better offer so

  • 26:13

  • that's how I got started I did that

  • 26:14

  • video with Monty and the thing that

  • 26:16

  • really gave it Monty had like I think

  • 26:18

  • like 4,000 subscribers at that point or

  • 26:20

  • something and I asked Monty I said hey

  • 26:23

  • can I put a teaser to the interview for

  • 26:25

  • my channel on your channel so we put

  • 26:27

  • like five minutes of it on his channel

  • 26:29

  • and said to watch the rest of the the

  • 26:31

  • interview go to subscribe to be better

  • 26:33

  • golf so I had like zero subscribers or

  • 26:36

  • maybe like like 25 or something and when

  • 26:39

  • my when Monty put that teaser that I cut

  • 26:42

  • up on his deal that a lot of his people

  • 26:45

  • started coming over and like I got like

  • 26:48

  • 500 or something subscribers and that's

  • 26:51

  • always like the hardest part of

  • 26:53

  • anybody's like YouTube channel is always

  • 26:55

  • going from like zero to something and

  • 26:59

  • usually the part of the problem people

  • 27:01

  • have is like they're waiting for like

  • 27:02

  • they're waiting for like that golden

  • 27:05

  • amazing awesome video opportunity to

  • 27:07

  • like to put up that's really gonna catch

  • 27:09

  • people but it doesn't work like that

  • 27:11

  • you'd be much better off just to put up

  • 27:14

  • like bad video consistently and honest

  • 27:17

  • you know honest it can in consistent

  • 27:19

  • videos about whatever you're making your

  • 27:21

  • videos about and just like just keep

  • 27:23

  • putting them up you know and and drone

  • 27:25

  • really like expect anything out of it

  • 27:27

  • for a while just just like get better at

  • 27:29

  • it and be consistent at it because and

  • 27:31

  • the journey of doing be a better golf

  • 27:33

  • like I've become like a better golfer

  • 27:35

  • for sure and but I've become like a much

  • 27:38

  • better like YouTube video maker and like

  • 27:40

  • that's one of the things that's been a

  • 27:43

  • bonus but Scott was asking how that golf

  • 27:49

  • shirt was I'm sure from Australia is

  • 27:53

  • that we do one that you want

  • 27:56

  • the golf swing journey oh it was good it

  • 27:59

  • was good like I like that shirt but I

  • 28:02

  • have kind of like a different golf like

  • 28:03

  • if you saw that the the old the old Ben

  • 28:08

  • Hogan five lessons book you know where

  • 28:10

  • he's got his hand his arms like tied up

  • 28:12

  • and like a mummy wrap almost like

  • 28:14

  • together to like keep them together

  • 28:15

  • that's kind of like what it's based on

  • 28:17

  • but now like I love the golf swing shirt

  • 28:21

  • for pitching and chipping and not

  • 28:24

  • putting so much because you can't your

  • 28:25

  • elbows kind of go out more

  • 28:26

  • but for pitching and chipping I think

  • 28:28

  • it's amazing but I think anything past

  • 28:29

  • like belt high like I I don't like it

  • 28:32

  • that much for that so you know if the

  • 28:35

  • the they're still selling quite a few of

  • 28:37

  • those and I don't think Patrick is

  • 28:39

  • involved anymore but yeah and Pat your

  • 28:44

  • question may get answered a little bit

  • 28:46

  • later so I'm gonna table that and and

  • 28:48

  • we'll have a Q&A session guys a little

  • 28:52

  • bit later so Brendon so real quick on

  • 28:55

  • that point

  • 28:55

  • um the so basically what you're doing so

  • 29:02

  • essentially you're reaching out to these

  • 29:04

  • golf professionals and you're

  • 29:06

  • communicating with them like hey I would

  • 29:08

  • love to come out and film about X Y & Z

  • 29:11

  • and then you go out you meet these guys

  • 29:14

  • you guys do your film session and then

  • 29:17

  • and then ultimately it ends up on your

  • 29:19

  • channel you usually it works kind of

  • 29:21

  • like in the same way that collabs work

  • 29:23

  • for for more normal YouTube channels so

  • 29:28

  • the best way it works is if a guy has a

  • 29:31

  • youtube channel where they they're

  • 29:35

  • they're trying to make a point about the

  • 29:37

  • golf swing that you know that kind of

  • 29:40

  • resonates with like it's only like if

  • 29:42

  • somebody like has put up a bitch you

  • 29:45

  • almost always somebody's put up a video

  • 29:46

  • that's like really interesting to me or

  • 29:49

  • a new perspective on usually like

  • 29:52

  • because like off is like the general

  • 29:54

  • problem of like golf and specially like

  • 29:56

  • full swing is like it's it's pretty

  • 29:58

  • basic so so like what you have to do but

  • 30:01

  • when somebody comes with like a new

  • 30:03

  • perspective on how to get that done

  • 30:05

  • because I think that's what people get

  • 30:06

  • lost in too much where there's two

  • 30:09

  • different

  • 30:10

  • you could go about like solving the

  • 30:11

  • problem of what is golf like that you

  • 30:13

  • could be like you could really

  • 30:14

  • concentrate on the the things that

  • 30:17

  • happen in a good swing so like let's say

  • 30:20

  • like you see that's like good lag you

  • 30:22

  • see this good rotation you see you know

  • 30:24

  • the ball launching a certain way like

  • 30:26

  • those are all the things that happen but

  • 30:28

  • I like to but I mean that's something

  • 30:31

  • that like anybody could tell that's

  • 30:33

  • something that like a camera could tell

  • 30:34

  • or anything like that but I like B

  • 30:37

  • better golf to be a lot more about like

  • 30:39

  • what to do to make those good things

  • 30:41

  • happen yeah so many things in golf

  • 30:45

  • they're talking about things that are

  • 30:46

  • basically like a history lesson like

  • 30:48

  • that that's an analysis of what happened

  • 30:50

  • or like or they show like 20 players and

  • 30:53

  • they're like look all these players are

  • 30:55

  • similar in this way or that way or this

  • 30:57

  • player is you're a bad player because

  • 30:59

  • you're not like these other players well

  • 31:01

  • that's all stuff that happened but and a

  • 31:04

  • lot of the times the things that you

  • 31:05

  • have to do in order to make the good

  • 31:07

  • thing happen will be totally incorrect

  • 31:09

  • like you may have to feel like let's say

  • 31:11

  • let's say let's say like okay like you

  • 31:14

  • have to go across the line you know like

  • 31:16

  • they say you have to feel that you're

  • 31:19

  • massively across the line with like a

  • 31:21

  • broken wrist right like this alright

  • 31:23

  • that might get the golfer to look like

  • 31:26

  • Daniel Berger like it you never know so

  • 31:29

  • even a lot of times when when people are

  • 31:31

  • having these like ridiculous golf

  • 31:34

  • debates it's like how come you're

  • 31:36

  • telling your students to do XY and z XY

  • 31:39

  • and Z never happens in any golf good

  • 31:41

  • golf swing and but the rubber really

  • 31:45

  • meets the road it's like okay well how

  • 31:47

  • are the students doing are they getting

  • 31:49

  • better with that info because you're

  • 31:53

  • bringing the way your brain interprets

  • 31:54

  • something you might have to tell them

  • 31:56

  • something that's totally wrong to do in

  • 31:58

  • order to get the good thing to happen so

  • 32:01

  • when I'm so that's usually the process

  • 32:03

  • when I when I see somebody that has put

  • 32:04

  • up a cool video or a blog post or

  • 32:07

  • something like that that's something

  • 32:08

  • that I like I'll send them an email my

  • 32:10

  • name is Brendon Brendon for I were in a

  • 32:12

  • YouTube channel about golf with over X

  • 32:14

  • amount of subscribers and I really like

  • 32:18

  • to interview you on putting or I really

  • 32:20

  • like to interview you about this concept

  • 32:21

  • that you had like I haven't heard any

  • 32:23

  • else talk about it like that and here's

  • 32:26

  • an example and most guys have been super

  • 32:29

  • cool only a couple times I've I've had

  • 32:32

  • guys like have like very strange

  • 32:36

  • reactions to me asking to do this but

  • 32:39

  • for the most part everyone's in yeah I

  • 32:42

  • think you know and and I think it's

  • 32:45

  • important for everyone who's listening

  • 32:47

  • right now to like just to think about

  • 32:49

  • all the time and effort that takes to

  • 32:52

  • set up to go work with someone go travel

  • 32:55

  • to go see them videotape it cut the

  • 32:57

  • videos do all that stuff so yeah I mean

  • 32:59

  • you could you although you could put all

  • 33:02

  • the work that goes into like those goth

  • 33:05

  • videos and so like it would be about

  • 33:07

  • like this much and then the editing is

  • 33:09

  • always this much like the editing is

  • 33:12

  • brutal like if you're gonna start like

  • 33:14

  • it's it's so it's like such a time suck

  • 33:17

  • and it's not really that fun either like

  • 33:19

  • making the videos is it takes a long

  • 33:21

  • time it's difficult but it like it's fun

  • 33:23

  • you're golfing you're talking about golf

  • 33:25

  • you're getting better you're like you

  • 33:27

  • know you're interacting with like other

  • 33:29

  • golfers like you know it's it's you know

  • 33:31

  • I'd do that for free but but the the

  • 33:35

  • editing is brutal because you know like

  • 33:37

  • um I'm forty hours a week at a regular

  • 33:39

  • job and they're so basically like all my

  • 33:41

  • editing time is after after the kids go

  • 33:44

  • to sleep or whatever else so for the

  • 33:46

  • first two years of the channel like

  • 33:48

  • there was no like work-life balance like

  • 33:50

  • I was literally up almost every night so

  • 33:52

  • like 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning editing

  • 33:55

  • these videos and then and then you know

  • 33:58

  • trying to consistently put him out it

  • 34:00

  • wasn't until I got better at doing the

  • 34:02

  • videos and gang shooting them and having

  • 34:04

  • different like strategies to do that

  • 34:06

  • before like the editing wasn't just

  • 34:10

  • totally like the worst time-consuming

  • 34:12

  • thing because that's what like you know

  • 34:14

  • the one thing about it is like at like

  • 34:15

  • working a desk job like most people do

  • 34:17

  • and editing is just like that's acts

  • 34:19

  • that's what I do professionally as well

  • 34:21

  • it's like I would I think that like

  • 34:25

  • somebody somebody who works the desk job

  • 34:30

  • probably gets their body destroyed even

  • 34:32

  • worse than somebody who's doing like

  • 34:34

  • manual labor every day like on a

  • 34:36

  • construction site

  • 34:37

  • I mean I have to talk to you know and

  • 34:39

  • doctor about that but like it is so

  • 34:41

  • damaging you mean even the way you and I

  • 34:43

  • are sitting right now like it's damaging

  • 34:45

  • to your body and then to just to you

  • 34:47

  • like personally like as an athlete you

  • 34:49

  • know you're not moving you're not

  • 34:50

  • interacting with things in the physical

  • 34:53

  • world and so the editing itself is bad

  • 34:56

  • so that that'll be in the next step of

  • 34:57

  • be there Golf is to be able to to get

  • 35:00

  • like a an intern or something like that

  • 35:02

  • to help me with the editing but right

  • 35:04

  • now it's all there

  • 35:05

  • well I think I speak for everyone who

  • 35:08

  • says you know we appreciate you taking

  • 35:12

  • time out of your day to actually go and

  • 35:14

  • do all these collabs and work with

  • 35:16

  • people and travel and and then

  • 35:18

  • ultimately you're you're trying all this

  • 35:22

  • out for me to see what works so

  • 35:25

  • definitely appreciate everything that

  • 35:27

  • you do in there and now I want to move

  • 35:29

  • over into the real things and you lights

  • 35:33

  • one of my lights just went out here so

  • 35:35

  • I'm going to move this other one all

  • 35:50

  • right all right so now we're gonna go

  • 35:54

  • ahead and move into the tips yeah before

  • 35:59

  • someone someone someone asked Pat asked

  • 36:03

  • do you have to pay mulaskey and all

  • 36:05

  • these other instructors to see them well

  • 36:07

  • you think I don't know no I don't know

  • 36:10

  • it's like pretty no I I don't have to

  • 36:13

  • pay these guys but to videotape them but

  • 36:16

  • a good example of this is like I went

  • 36:18

  • and saw Milo you know and Milo was like

  • 36:21

  • he Milo was a guy that watch be better

  • 36:24

  • got for a while Plus like he teaches

  • 36:25

  • right next to Michael Aska so when I

  • 36:27

  • would go out there and do videos of Mike

  • 36:28

  • Milo would see the videos that I did

  • 36:30

  • like from Superstition Mountain so I

  • 36:32

  • kind of got in like his space and you

  • 36:36

  • know where he was like watching my

  • 36:37

  • videos and I was asking him some

  • 36:38

  • questions and so I went out to - I told

  • 36:42

  • Milo like hey we should do some videos

  • 36:43

  • together once like you guys are

  • 36:45

  • accepting people that don't like

  • 36:47

  • outsiders at your club again after the

  • 36:48

  • virus and he was like yeah

  • 36:51

  • okay that'd be fun and so like Milo like

  • 36:55

  • is 125 dollars a lesson or you can like

  • 37:00

  • spend all day with them for a certain

  • 37:02

  • amount or whatever like he literally

  • 37:03

  • took like he's super generous like he

  • 37:05

  • took like like a full day plus like

  • 37:09

  • parts like like so basically like a full

  • 37:12

  • day and a half like out of his work and

  • 37:14

  • we just like did videos together and so

  • 37:18

  • that's like that's like a risk on his

  • 37:20

  • part like like okay let me not see my my

  • 37:23

  • customers you know my clients you know

  • 37:26

  • for for like take a full day out so then

  • 37:28

  • but then like once I started putting the

  • 37:30

  • videos up like people started really and

  • 37:32

  • I didn't you know like really the the

  • 37:34

  • guy was asking I didn't pay Milo

  • 37:37

  • anything to to be on the channel and

  • 37:39

  • Milo also didn't have to pay me to be on

  • 37:41

  • the channel because sometimes people get

  • 37:42

  • contacted by people to be part of things

  • 37:44

  • you know but you got to pay but Milo

  • 37:48

  • said that within like for within like a

  • 37:51

  • week of the first video and be better

  • 37:53

  • golf coming out he got over 200 requests

  • 37:56

  • for online lessons yeah it's pretty she

  • 38:00

  • blew up he needed he needed to switch

  • 38:03

  • over to another booking system and so

  • 38:06

  • like it's a total win-win I mean I like

  • 38:09

  • the the win-win-win actually it's it

  • 38:12

  • it's a win for me for the Golf Channel's

  • 38:14

  • win for people that get to see the

  • 38:15

  • videos and it's a win for the instructor

  • 38:17

  • so one get one instructor did ask me

  • 38:20

  • because I wanted to go visit him and

  • 38:21

  • like really far away place but like a

  • 38:23

  • interesting instructor to me he's like

  • 38:25

  • and I was talking to him for like hours

  • 38:27

  • on the phone and he's like okay I got

  • 38:29

  • one question for you but no he was like

  • 38:31

  • why would I do this like what what would

  • 38:33

  • possibly be in it for me to do this and

  • 38:36

  • I was like trying to tell him the same

  • 38:38

  • things I was just telling you but he was

  • 38:40

  • like an older guy it just didn't click

  • 38:41

  • with them like you just didn't get why

  • 38:43

  • that would be a benefit so I was like

  • 38:46

  • okay that's fine that's fine just before

  • 38:48

  • calculus yeah yeah right

  • 38:50

  • by the way Milo rips yeah yeah yeah he's

  • 38:55

  • the best driver I've ever seen

  • 38:56

  • yeah he crushes it alright so let's go

  • 39:00

  • ahead and get into yeah what you guys

  • 39:03

  • are all gonna get away from

  • 39:05

  • there are some of the tips that Bremen

  • 39:07

  • shared with me so and we'll we'll spend

  • 39:10

  • a few minutes on each one so you guys

  • 39:12

  • can kind of hear Brendon's thoughts on

  • 39:14

  • this tip number one sign up for a

  • 39:17

  • tournament just above your level yep

  • 39:21

  • so Brendon why would you know an amateur

  • 39:25

  • who's trying to get better why what does

  • 39:27

  • this do for them basically what this

  • 39:29

  • will do for you is the reason I say this

  • 39:32

  • and and I wanted to put it first is that

  • 39:34

  • just that like one of the most powerful

  • 39:37

  • ways to get better it's just like

  • 39:39

  • motivation because like if you're just

  • 39:42

  • playing golf say with like your regular

  • 39:44

  • group or you're just kind of like

  • 39:46

  • spinning your wheels and and you feel

  • 39:49

  • like you're working on the right things

  • 39:50

  • but you just don't know like you got a

  • 39:52

  • if once you sign up for that tournament

  • 39:55

  • that she's like just above your level so

  • 39:57

  • for example like I signed up last year

  • 40:00

  • like I sent like just above my level is

  • 40:03

  • that mini Tour player you know so I

  • 40:06

  • signed up for like a mini Tour pro event

  • 40:08

  • and I like my goal or one of my goals in

  • 40:13

  • the channel with like I think it would

  • 40:14

  • be cool to go from like like just

  • 40:16

  • amateur golfer so like somebody that

  • 40:18

  • like as like as won money from other

  • 40:21

  • people who are doing it professionally

  • 40:23

  • like so I was doing this thing it was

  • 40:24

  • almost called like what it was he

  • 40:26

  • calling it like a project pro money like

  • 40:29

  • I was gonna take somebody else's money

  • 40:30

  • like that was like doing it at like as a

  • 40:32

  • pro so um once you sign up for a

  • 40:35

  • tournament that you know that you're not

  • 40:37

  • quite at that level like you know that

  • 40:39

  • for it and especially like if it's not

  • 40:41

  • in your area or you're gonna be playing

  • 40:42

  • with guys that like you you almost never

  • 40:44

  • see you like when I was preparing for

  • 40:47

  • that tournament I that motivated me to

  • 40:49

  • start practicing like three footers like

  • 40:51

  • when are you gonna like try to try to

  • 40:53

  • like do that circle drill that you

  • 40:55

  • always see people talking about where

  • 40:56

  • you try to make a hundred putts in a row

  • 40:58

  • in a circle like you're never going to

  • 40:59

  • do that unless you know that you have

  • 41:01

  • this tournament going coming up and it

  • 41:03

  • also it's gonna fly there's so much

  • 41:05

  • different information about golf when

  • 41:07

  • you know you have like a tournament

  • 41:09

  • coming up you're gonna start to be real

  • 41:12

  • deliberate about what you accept into

  • 41:14

  • your like sphere of influence and what

  • 41:16

  • you get a you know toss

  • 41:19

  • because like I like I don't need

  • 41:20

  • something that's gonna work in like a

  • 41:22

  • couple years or you know or even it's

  • 41:25

  • just gonna be a quick fix but then

  • 41:26

  • follow it like you're gonna start to of

  • 41:28

  • all these different tips you're gonna

  • 41:29

  • see you're gonna be like hey I need the

  • 41:31

  • peak at this certain time to get it

  • 41:33

  • pretty good by this tournament and it

  • 41:36

  • just makes your when you have this thing

  • 41:38

  • coming up and it's the same thing that

  • 41:40

  • they always say like I knew this piano

  • 41:42

  • teacher and she said one of the most

  • 41:44

  • important things about being a piano

  • 41:46

  • teacher is the recitals because they'll

  • 41:49

  • just kind of practice and they'll just

  • 41:51

  • the people the piano players will

  • 41:53

  • especially you like kids they'll always

  • 41:54

  • kind of like stay at their level but

  • 41:56

  • like if you know you have that recital

  • 41:58

  • coming up then like the intensity gets

  • 42:00

  • get so much more and that's the main

  • 42:02

  • thing when you practice more than

  • 42:04

  • anything else more than any great tip or

  • 42:07

  • anything else your practice needs to be

  • 42:09

  • intense and this is the thing that Tiger

  • 42:11

  • Woods figured out better than anybody

  • 42:13

  • else because he was able to you know not

  • 42:16

  • be playing on tour for weeks and weeks

  • 42:19

  • and weeks but still like show up at the

  • 42:21

  • the major having only practiced by

  • 42:25

  • himself right at that you know bleeding

  • 42:28

  • edge of intensity that he needs to do

  • 42:32

  • that and the other thing is to like if

  • 42:35

  • you keep playing with like the same

  • 42:36

  • people like they see you in a certain

  • 42:39

  • way and it's kind of a give-and-take

  • 42:41

  • like they see you and you see them

  • 42:43

  • seeing you so like you know like they

  • 42:46

  • know your shot shape they know who you

  • 42:48

  • are and they basically like have you

  • 42:50

  • figured out it's nice when you go into

  • 42:52

  • another tournament they know nothing

  • 42:54

  • about you hey if you like let's say

  • 42:56

  • you're a I say you're a 5 handicap and

  • 42:59

  • but you go and you play you play in the

  • 43:02

  • state ammeter you know a qualifier if

  • 43:06

  • you go to that qualifier they don't know

  • 43:08

  • anything about you so if you hit you

  • 43:10

  • know three good shots your first three

  • 43:12

  • shots are good and you made it and you

  • 43:14

  • make a birdie for all you know you're

  • 43:16

  • like the best player from your area or

  • 43:19

  • your the you know and you can start to

  • 43:20

  • kind of take that on you know and right

  • 43:24

  • yeah it's just

  • 43:24

  • it'll just signing up for a tournament

  • 43:27

  • that is just above your level will

  • 43:30

  • really motivate you and that might be

  • 43:32

  • getting

  • 43:32

  • the thing that actually gets you into

  • 43:34

  • that level like permanently and then

  • 43:36

  • beyond well you know what when you send

  • 43:40

  • me that tip I wasn't even thinking of

  • 43:43

  • that I was thinking more about like oh

  • 43:45

  • he's probably wanting them to watch

  • 43:48

  • watch like how they felt like the bet

  • 43:51

  • better players play and all that and

  • 43:54

  • like maybe like how they have like a

  • 43:55

  • putting routine and you might absorb

  • 43:59

  • some of that good stuff from awesomo or

  • 44:01

  • osmosis or whatever but for the most

  • 44:04

  • part no it's more about them looking at

  • 44:06

  • you than you looking at them yeah no I

  • 44:09

  • think what you made made so much

  • 44:12

  • practical sense right there because I

  • 44:14

  • know as soon as you started saying that

  • 44:17

  • I was thinking to myself if I was in the

  • 44:19

  • tournament that's exactly what I would

  • 44:21

  • be doing I'd be like I gotta get I gotta

  • 44:22

  • get yeah you feel their eyeballs on you

  • 44:25

  • and and you get jazzed up I mean the

  • 44:27

  • main motivator more than anything else

  • 44:29

  • in golf is shame and you know you do not

  • 44:33

  • want to I mean it'll know like more than

  • 44:36

  • you want to win or you want to do it you

  • 44:38

  • just don't want to be totally disgraced

  • 44:41

  • in front of a bunch of other golfers you

  • 44:43

  • know so that that will especially like

  • 44:46

  • missing those short putts like that's

  • 44:48

  • there's a big shame factor to it like

  • 44:50

  • you'd have to be an idiot to miss that

  • 44:52

  • putt so that was not wanting to be get

  • 44:54

  • yourself in that position will get you

  • 44:56

  • to practice and get become a better

  • 44:58

  • putter that's awesome

  • 45:00

  • John John was saying his that his club

  • 45:04

  • championship starts tomorrow but he

  • 45:07

  • wasn't confident enough to sign up well

  • 45:09

  • maybe maybe next time apparently you you

  • 45:12

  • talked to John to because he was saying

  • 45:14

  • that you connected him with Eric awesome

  • 45:19

  • all right tip number two build an

  • 45:22

  • obstacle course and don't be embarrassed

  • 45:23

  • all right so there's a great book that

  • 45:26

  • Mike bender wrote called building a

  • 45:30

  • swing for a lifetime anyway and when I

  • 45:32

  • was talking I did an interview with Mike

  • 45:34

  • bender we also did a be better golf

  • 45:35

  • school at his golf school and when you

  • 45:38

  • when you go yeah in Lake Mary so when

  • 45:43

  • you go to his golf school the place is

  • 45:45

  • just new

  • 45:46

  • everywhere like all the teachers that

  • 45:49

  • are teaching there they're putting

  • 45:51

  • people with these the noodles by their

  • 45:53

  • head or around the club or and then he's

  • 45:55

  • also has these things this thing called

  • 45:57

  • the makes the system which is the most

  • 45:59

  • efficient swing golf swing obtainable

  • 46:01

  • and which is basically like a jungle gym

  • 46:05

  • apparatus that people stand in and

  • 46:07

  • depending on what you're working on you

  • 46:10

  • know you you sweet you set it up so that

  • 46:12

  • you have to swing through it I think

  • 46:14

  • yeah so it's it's a it's a cool thing

  • 46:18

  • but you can do everything that that

  • 46:20

  • machine does just by with shafts and

  • 46:25

  • pool noodles and like lineman sticks so

  • 46:28

  • it is difficult though the the diagnosis

  • 46:31

  • process is difficult because sometimes

  • 46:33

  • people will work on like that something

  • 46:35

  • that is not even like relevant to making

  • 46:37

  • them better but basically um when you're

  • 46:40

  • good when you go to the range like I

  • 46:42

  • don't think you're not really you're not

  • 46:46

  • really gaining progress on becoming

  • 46:48

  • better if I'm able to walk up behind you

  • 46:51

  • and I just see like you're you know you

  • 46:54

  • you hitting a club and your bag and like

  • 46:57

  • the balls and like that's it like if

  • 46:59

  • because the way your body works and this

  • 47:03

  • is coming from like a lot of different

  • 47:04

  • coaches that have seen people get better

  • 47:06

  • and seeing people stagnate you you don't

  • 47:09

  • want to hit stuff you know like you you

  • 47:12

  • will improve so much faster if you're

  • 47:15

  • using like obstacles and things like

  • 47:17

  • that so for example like me like I stand

  • 47:19

  • up in my swing like this so for mine my

  • 47:23

  • whole golf career I've stood up in my

  • 47:25

  • swing and I and my shoulders have gotten

  • 47:27

  • flat and then and everything I've tried

  • 47:29

  • like feel of this feel this feel that do

  • 47:32

  • this do that like it nothing makes it

  • 47:34

  • better but if I put a noodle here right

  • 47:37

  • on my shoulder plane I'll stay under it

  • 47:39

  • and I'll start to feel what I have to do

  • 47:41

  • to stay on to stay under it and I'll

  • 47:44

  • have that a negative feedback really

  • 47:46

  • because like if I do the wrong thing so

  • 47:49

  • I would figure out what you're what

  • 47:52

  • you're working on in your golf swing and

  • 47:53

  • whatever it almost any problem in the

  • 47:56

  • golf swing other than like mental

  • 47:59

  • problems is like

  • 48:00

  • boil it down like if you're looking to

  • 48:03

  • make your golf swing better you really

  • 48:05

  • boil it down to okay what is the golf

  • 48:07

  • club doing like don't be like I hate the

  • 48:10

  • way my hip looks here or I hate that I'm

  • 48:12

  • early extending their like look how my

  • 48:14

  • toe comes up here like what would it

  • 48:15

  • look like if you erased yourself and you

  • 48:17

  • just saw the club swinging okay now

  • 48:19

  • right based on what the club is doing

  • 48:22

  • you need to find based on what the club

  • 48:26

  • is doing you need to find some array of

  • 48:28

  • noodles or whatever else to get you

  • 48:31

  • doing the right thing and and then

  • 48:33

  • there's also there's another more

  • 48:35

  • complicated way to do it where you

  • 48:36

  • actually feed the error and you actually

  • 48:39

  • put the noodles in a way where you have

  • 48:41

  • to do the wrong thing and then you hit

  • 48:43

  • horrible shots but your body learns that

  • 48:44

  • that's wrong and then you go back to the

  • 48:46

  • right thing so there's a flip flopping

  • 48:48

  • to that but basically like okay if

  • 48:50

  • because that's all all double golf ball

  • 48:53

  • knows and this is like nothing new but

  • 48:55

  • all the golf ball knows is where the

  • 48:57

  • golf is the path that the club came from

  • 48:59

  • and then how it's tilted at impact and

  • 49:01

  • where you hit it on the face so just

  • 49:03

  • simplify it like okay what is it because

  • 49:05

  • I wanted to get into doing some like

  • 49:08

  • golf instruction so I was talking to

  • 49:11

  • Tony loot sack who I've taken like a

  • 49:13

  • bunch of lessons from he's like my

  • 49:14

  • personal teacher people in your videos

  • 49:17

  • with him so I did I did a I did a review

  • 49:21

  • of my nephews golf swing and I yeah yeah

  • 49:25

  • yeah I did a review of Jack's golf swing

  • 49:27

  • where it was like he sent me a swing and

  • 49:29

  • I did a voiceover on it and then I sent

  • 49:31

  • it to Tony and I said like okay like how

  • 49:33

  • did I do as a you know golf instructor

  • 49:36

  • he's like well let's just say like if it

  • 49:39

  • was pass/fail that you would have failed

  • 49:42

  • I was like really it was like because I

  • 49:44

  • thought I did a pretty good job he's

  • 49:45

  • like he's like no this would be like d+

  • 49:48

  • at best I was like really oh okay but he

  • 49:51

  • was like no you he's like look at what

  • 49:53

  • his golf clubs doing I had told Jack

  • 49:55

  • like hey you're Elbow this and and your

  • 49:57

  • shoulder that and blah blah but like I

  • 49:59

  • had to mention like okay you know cuz

  • 50:01

  • you're gonna do a lot better if you can

  • 50:03

  • get yourself or your student in this

  • 50:05

  • clay case to like you figure out what

  • 50:09

  • you got to do to get the golf club here

  • 50:11

  • it's because from there through there

  • 50:13

  • just

  • 50:14

  • like from you know they call it p6 to p8

  • 50:16

  • or whatever that's really the only part

  • 50:20

  • that influence is it like because the

  • 50:21

  • thing that that I always see and this is

  • 50:23

  • the big thing that comes to the obstacle

  • 50:25

  • course is you always see from waist high

  • 50:28

  • let's say you're the golf swing from

  • 50:30

  • belt high on the way through is like

  • 50:34

  • above waist high it's super like there's

  • 50:37

  • Jim Furyk and there's Rickie Fowler and

  • 50:39

  • there's Shane Lowery and there's Daniel

  • 50:41

  • Berger and everybody in between but once

  • 50:43

  • you get to about belt high on the way

  • 50:46

  • through it starts to narrow like

  • 50:48

  • dramatically like almost everybody's

  • 50:50

  • pretty similar and then once you get to

  • 50:52

  • impact everybody is extremely simply as

  • 50:55

  • similar and how they're doing that so

  • 50:57

  • figure out what you're doing around

  • 50:58

  • impact that's that's not what you want

  • 51:02

  • and start you know and and if you're not

  • 51:04

  • like you got to make it difficult so if

  • 51:07

  • you're doing it and you're missing the

  • 51:08

  • noodle a lot of times then you're it's

  • 51:11

  • probably not tough enough for you so and

  • 51:13

  • that's the other part about don't be

  • 51:14

  • embarrassed like set up this station

  • 51:16

  • like on the range like I was on the

  • 51:18

  • range I had all kinds of things I didn't

  • 51:20

  • look like Tim cup or whatever but I had

  • 51:22

  • a I had the thing for my shoulder here

  • 51:24

  • and then I had another thing for my for

  • 51:27

  • my club to keep it low on the way

  • 51:29

  • through which is basically the same

  • 51:31

  • thing but I was it's what I was working

  • 51:33

  • on and then I had a camera set up and

  • 51:34

  • this wasn't even like YouTube videos I

  • 51:36

  • was just practicing and then I had a

  • 51:38

  • camera set up doing like the instant

  • 51:39

  • replay and a golfer so everybody would

  • 51:42

  • be for the most part would be like

  • 51:44

  • majorly embarrassed to have like such a

  • 51:45

  • big setup like that on the range and a

  • 51:47

  • golf pro walks by me and I could this

  • 51:49

  • was during there's one of the only

  • 51:51

  • places I was open at the time and

  • 51:52

  • everybody would be like embarrassed

  • 51:54

  • thinking like oh man like the pro

  • 51:55

  • there's gonna like roll his eyes and

  • 51:57

  • they're like what is this idiot doing

  • 51:58

  • like you know doesn't know anything and

  • 52:00

  • he came up to me and he didn't know be

  • 52:02

  • better golf or anything and he just came

  • 52:04

  • up to me the pro he's like you know I'm

  • 52:06

  • really happy to see somebody actually

  • 52:09

  • trying to improve you know I seen you

  • 52:12

  • got your setup you got your camera like

  • 52:14

  • you're making some progress at getting

  • 52:16

  • better like everybody else here is you

  • 52:18

  • know you're basically just exercising

  • 52:20

  • you know because the way your brain

  • 52:22

  • works once you've hit one shot like okay

  • 52:25

  • you've done that and you can keep trying

  • 52:27

  • it and you're just

  • 52:28

  • searching for the feel of the day you're

  • 52:30

  • not really making any progress on what

  • 52:31

  • it's going to take to get better so

  • 52:33

  • actually like people would be nervous to

  • 52:36

  • be embarrassed to have so much stuff and

  • 52:38

  • you know like apparatus around them but

  • 52:42

  • you're actually gonna get more respect

  • 52:44

  • from the people who go to a PGA Tour

  • 52:46

  • event a PGA Tour event today is looks so

  • 52:49

  • different than a PGA Tour event from the

  • 52:50

  • 80s today you're gonna see guys with

  • 52:53

  • balls in between their hands with pool

  • 52:55

  • noodles on the putting green is insane

  • 52:57

  • with how many alignment aids they have

  • 52:59

  • and other things right Judy she had like

  • 53:03

  • that wooden box that he brought out

  • 53:05

  • there one knows I'm the putting greener

  • 53:06

  • on their driving range oh no I haven't

  • 53:10

  • been it it was what it was literally

  • 53:12

  • like I mean it looked like like like a

  • 53:15

  • gate but I had to be more than that

  • 53:17

  • because it was it was like a like a

  • 53:20

  • miniature doghouse out there and he's

  • 53:23

  • now that's a thing that you're good at

  • 53:25

  • or event now there's all kinds of

  • 53:27

  • apparatus and stuff that they're using

  • 53:30

  • now and the other thing that tour

  • 53:32

  • players have that is really important

  • 53:35

  • like that they're using their caddies

  • 53:37

  • and in in ways to hold the noodles and

  • 53:39

  • also hold the camera and hold they like

  • 53:41

  • that feedback is really crucial and if

  • 53:43

  • you want to be better like the thing

  • 53:45

  • that I used to say like because people

  • 53:48

  • like when I first went out to do the

  • 53:50

  • videos on golf courses and stuff the

  • 53:52

  • thing that people said like aren't you

  • 53:54

  • like embarrassed like pull the camera

  • 53:56

  • out pulled the tripod out pull it like

  • 53:58

  • all this stuff out sorry

  • 54:02

  • aren't you aren't you embarrassed to

  • 54:04

  • pull all this stuff out and I'm like

  • 54:06

  • well those people aren't there when I'm

  • 54:09

  • signing my scorecard for like an 84 and

  • 54:13

  • I feel like I want to vomit you know

  • 54:14

  • those people who are making me feel like

  • 54:16

  • like silly for for having the camera out

  • 54:19

  • or having the noodles out or like you

  • 54:21

  • know they're not going to be the ones

  • 54:22

  • that are gonna have to deal with like my

  • 54:24

  • emotions when like I'm feeling horrible

  • 54:27

  • and they're also not going to be there

  • 54:29

  • when you know I've played really well so

  • 54:32

  • it's like I I'm the one who has to deal

  • 54:34

  • with you know the results of my good or

  • 54:37

  • bad scores so I don't I don't care how

  • 54:41

  • they feel don't be

  • 54:42

  • hey you know what and I think it's a

  • 54:45

  • great tip because I've been going to the

  • 54:47

  • range a lot lately and I haven't seen I

  • 54:52

  • haven't seen anyone with any kind of

  • 54:56

  • apparatus SIG's any kind of setup going

  • 54:59

  • on besides maybe the occasional

  • 55:01

  • alignment stick around

  • 55:03

  • I mean look my favorite show it's

  • 55:05

  • actually in the future this is something

  • 55:07

  • I want to do but like my favorite golf

  • 55:09

  • TV show or Internet show that ever comes

  • 55:11

  • on all year is live on the range at the

  • 55:14

  • Masters you know oh so like you know on

  • 55:18

  • the Wednesday or a Tuesday Wednesday

  • 55:19

  • before the Masters they have the track

  • 55:21

  • man set up so you can see the flight

  • 55:23

  • scopes of how the ball is going but you

  • 55:25

  • know Bryson and even Tiger and another

  • 55:28

  • guys you know they put the head cover in

  • 55:30

  • such a way on the ground or Vijay Singh

  • 55:33

  • puts the the umbrella in such a way and

  • 55:35

  • the end the sand bottle and like you

  • 55:37

  • know they they have they have like these

  • 55:40

  • little obstacle courses or even they're

  • 55:42

  • doing it with balls sometimes but more

  • 55:44

  • and more you're seeing guys like when

  • 55:46

  • would you ever see like in the 80s when

  • 55:48

  • would you ever have seen somebody come

  • 55:50

  • out with like a straight-up training aid

  • 55:52

  • like a but now you see it all the time a

  • 55:56

  • friend of mine birdie from DST golf like

  • 55:58

  • has the bent backwards Club you know

  • 56:00

  • like 23 of the top 30 guys have have

  • 56:05

  • used that club like on a peon at or

  • 56:07

  • driving range so yeah that's like that's

  • 56:10

  • an old idea that people think like is

  • 56:13

  • like really embarrassing or whatever but

  • 56:15

  • you just got to get over there

  • 56:18

  • awesome all right our final tip here and

  • 56:23

  • this is something that I feel like

  • 56:24

  • you've probably done more research and

  • 56:28

  • homework on than anyone else

  • 56:30

  • definitely across the YouTube

  • 56:33

  • stratosphere is towing the golf club

  • 56:39

  • don't let the club control right so so

  • 56:43

  • this comes from like I did a series of

  • 56:45

  • videos with birdy who I was just talking

  • 56:47

  • about the guy who yeah I've seen that so

  • 56:51

  • I'm basically like birdy calls it lagged

  • 56:55

  • tension which never really fit for me

  • 56:57

  • because having the word tension in there

  • 57:01

  • makes you think that like you're holding

  • 57:03

  • it or like you know you're being tense

  • 57:04

  • as you're holding it it's it's not what

  • 57:06

  • it means but but it but it does give you

  • 57:08

  • that image of like holding and that was

  • 57:10

  • the thing with be a better golf when I

  • 57:12

  • first started it that the main question

  • 57:15

  • I had was like hey like I've been trying

  • 57:16

  • because I learned the golfing machine

  • 57:18

  • other things that's hard about like how

  • 57:20

  • important lag was I've been trying so

  • 57:22

  • hard to hold lag and keep lag through

  • 57:25

  • impact and I'm just like I was like a

  • 57:27

  • seriously bad like I was an okay player

  • 57:30

  • like probably like a four handicap or

  • 57:31

  • something but like but that took so much

  • 57:34

  • like practice and like just to get there

  • 57:37

  • and my and my anti handicap was super

  • 57:40

  • high so like there's the handicap is

  • 57:42

  • like of your whatever your 20 bet at 20

  • 57:45

  • last rounds like your five lowest

  • 57:46

  • averaged right but my ante handicap of

  • 57:50

  • like of my 20 last rounds my five

  • 57:52

  • highest average would have been like

  • 57:53

  • really high you know especially for so

  • 57:56

  • um so when you're talking about towing

  • 58:00

  • the golf club the club has to be towed

  • 58:03

  • through impact so if I'm see I'm like

  • 58:05

  • pulling this through so think about like

  • 58:08

  • how you could control like a if you're

  • 58:10

  • running fast with like a push cart on

  • 58:12

  • two wheels you know and you're running

  • 58:15

  • fast forward pushing it think about how

  • 58:16

  • much control you would have or if you're

  • 58:18

  • running fast but it's trailing behind

  • 58:20

  • you they kind of get an idea of it so a

  • 58:23

  • lot of people get this confused with

  • 58:25

  • shaft lean and can I share my screen

  • 58:29

  • with you because I have some things

  • 58:31

  • prepared if I can I don't know if you

  • 58:35

  • can or I don't think I can yeah because

  • 58:40

  • I'm in my yeah yeah I don't think so so

  • 58:46

  • basically you have to tow the golf club

  • 58:49

  • through through the area through the

  • 58:51

  • zone so if you take the easy way to look

  • 58:54

  • at this I'm just unplug from here second

  • 58:57

  • [Applause]

  • 59:00

  • swing from face on and you hit the golf

  • 59:03

  • ball if you take an extension of your

  • 59:06

  • left arm and

  • 59:08

  • a line down to the ground this needs to

  • 59:11

  • be past the golf ball at impact so that

  • 59:18

  • shows whether or not you're towing the

  • 59:20

  • club now most people what they do is

  • 59:22

  • they they swing the golf club

  • 59:25

  • we kind of overcharge it at the

  • 59:26

  • beginning and then it then it kind of

  • 59:29

  • tips backwards if you're swinging that

  • 59:31

  • kind of tips so so the only technical

  • 59:41

  • thing that I was as you're as you're as

  • 59:45

  • you're trying to build your golf swing

  • 59:47

  • and you're trying to become better at

  • 59:48

  • golf you've got to learn first how to

  • 59:50

  • identify how much toe you are doing like

  • 59:54

  • how much you're throwing it through

  • 59:54

  • impact then you've got to be able to

  • 59:57

  • then you got to figure out like okay how

  • 59:59

  • am I going to do that but 95 plus

  • 60:02

  • percent of regular golfers have the club

  • 60:05

  • at impact past their hands basically so

  • 60:09

  • once the club is if you're toning it

  • 60:12

  • through impact then you are controlling

  • 60:14

  • the golf club once the club has passed

  • 60:17

  • this line that if that goes past your

  • 60:19

  • left arm once the club has passed that

  • 60:21

  • the club is its own freewheeling thing

  • 60:24

  • it's basically like I'm controlling this

  • 60:26

  • pencil until once I let go of it like

  • 60:29

  • I'm not controlling what that's doing

  • 60:31

  • and that's exactly what you're doing you

  • 60:32

  • would you're throwing the club to the

  • 60:34

  • ball and then it gets flung past you and

  • 60:36

  • then it can wobble sometimes you'll hit

  • 60:39

  • it this way sometimes you're headed that

  • 60:40

  • way so so then you version your

  • 60:44

  • consistency even your power all of that

  • 60:47

  • stuff futures and Sascha McKenzie famous

  • 60:49

  • gosh fat Goff scientist so birdy had a

  • 60:52

  • show do this thing called forward

  • 60:54

  • modeling of the difference between legs

  • 60:57

  • like what if everything was equal what

  • 60:59

  • if the club head speed and the angle of

  • 61:02

  • attack and this the location on the face

  • 61:06

  • and even the shaft lean what if all

  • 61:08

  • those things were the same but one swing

  • 61:11

  • had lag tension what he was calling

  • 61:13

  • there one was being towed and one had

  • 61:15

  • been flung Sasha found that you'll hit

  • 61:19

  • the ball 45 percent straighter if it's

  • 61:22

  • toad you'll hit it like seven yards

  • 61:24

  • further with like an 8-iron something

  • 61:27

  • like everything like but like that

  • 61:29

  • that's straightness it was like

  • 61:31

  • dramatically more narrow if you're the

  • 61:34

  • one that's doing it because you cannot

  • 61:36

  • predict the timing that you need to line

  • 61:39

  • that up is is really difficult and it's

  • 61:43

  • just once you know how to and if you go

  • 61:46

  • to if you search be better golf lag

  • 61:49

  • tension you'll see you'll see a lot of

  • 61:52

  • videos that will explain this better but

  • 61:53

  • once you know how to identify that

  • 61:55

  • you'll see it in every single time like

  • 61:57

  • I'm it's impossible for me to watch a

  • 62:00

  • Instagram post of a golfer with a face

  • 62:02

  • on from a face on view without me doing

  • 62:05

  • a screenshot and recording and pausing

  • 62:07

  • and impact and you'll see like a huge

  • 62:10

  • difference and but but the other thing

  • 62:12

  • with this too is that doesn't mean like

  • 62:14

  • yeah key Neiman like has like beautiful

  • 62:16

  • like the most on tour like he's towing

  • 62:18

  • it more than any other player on tour

  • 62:19

  • him and Cameron champ a little bit but a

  • 62:22

  • camera champ has a lot of probably maybe

  • 62:25

  • the most weight driver but through the

  • 62:26

  • entire bag

  • 62:27

  • Hakeem Neiman's towing it more than

  • 62:29

  • anybody else so he's got like his his

  • 62:32

  • arms would be pointed about two feet in

  • 62:36

  • front of the ball at impact but and that

  • 62:39

  • doesn't mean that Yaqui Neiman is gonna

  • 62:42

  • be better

  • 62:43

  • golfer than like Charlie Hoffman who's

  • 62:46

  • like eight inches in front of the ball

  • 62:47

  • it's a binary choice either you're

  • 62:50

  • towing it through impact either you're

  • 62:53

  • towing the club and you're in control of

  • 62:54

  • it and that could be two feet that could

  • 62:56

  • be you know seven inches or you're

  • 63:00

  • you're not and that could be and and on

  • 63:02

  • that side of it though that's that's

  • 63:05

  • pretty like the worst players are like

  • 63:08

  • have the club like back here and they're

  • 63:11

  • trying to impact like this and then

  • 63:12

  • you're starting to get better and closer

  • 63:14

  • to scratch as you get to here you know

  • 63:16

  • on the tour side of it on the like

  • 63:19

  • tension side of it it's you just need

  • 63:21

  • some so that's like really the the

  • 63:23

  • dividing line for if you're trying to

  • 63:25

  • get better at golf that's the dividing

  • 63:26

  • line for whether or not you can be an

  • 63:28

  • actual whether or not you're actually

  • 63:30

  • playing golf if you're towing if you're

  • 63:32

  • towing the club through impact then

  • 63:34

  • you're playing golf and

  • 63:36

  • you're actually able to be like okay

  • 63:38

  • that's when the game really opens up and

  • 63:41

  • that's when like because I don't think

  • 63:42

  • there's really any point in the mental

  • 63:46

  • game of golf or course strategy or

  • 63:48

  • anything like that if you're if you're

  • 63:49

  • if the club has been flipped past the

  • 63:53

  • point of you controlling it there's

  • 63:55

  • because yeah because you you have no

  • 63:57

  • idea but anyways the only point the only

  • 63:59

  • point would be to manage your own

  • 64:01

  • emotions and and to help you not feel

  • 64:04

  • quite so bad about it

  • 64:05

  • and maybe keep you in the game enough to

  • 64:08

  • have your your short game save it but

  • 64:11

  • you're gonna be no kind of player yeah

  • 64:15

  • if it's flip leg and there have been

  • 64:17

  • some people sometimes people send me

  • 64:20

  • pictures of like what about like Jack

  • 64:21

  • Nicklaus or what about this shot of

  • 64:23

  • tiger woods and and without a doubt

  • 64:26

  • whenever they're sending me these

  • 64:27

  • pictures that like proves that you don't

  • 64:29

  • need lag tension it's always like the

  • 64:32

  • balls about that far gone or a little

  • 64:34

  • bit on you know they're never hitting

  • 64:36

  • impact exactly you it's it's a so that

  • 64:40

  • was that's the main thing that and then

  • 64:41

  • the the the channel you can make an

  • 64:43

  • entire YouTube channel and I kind of

  • 64:45

  • have about the different ways that you

  • 64:48

  • achieve that state of toeing the club

  • 64:52

  • through impact and really by just

  • 64:56

  • raising anything the more some people

  • 65:00

  • the more you need to try to throw it the

  • 65:02

  • more you actually end up having so it's

  • 65:04

  • a very difficult problem to tackle but

  • 65:07

  • just to just know that that's that is

  • 65:10

  • the problem of golf that is the question

  • 65:13

  • that golf demands you get you you're if

  • 65:17

  • one thing that you say that that might

  • 65:20

  • benefit everyone as far as getting

  • 65:22

  • closer to toeing the club that you found

  • 65:26

  • that you feel like you need to do I mean

  • 65:27

  • for me I like to hit low like not very

  • 65:33

  • hard like seven irons that only only go

  • 65:36

  • like like seventy yards or something

  • 65:38

  • carry you know like and and you're

  • 65:43

  • taking it here and you can start to feel

  • 65:45

  • it that's that whenever you feel like oh

  • 65:46

  • I compress that ball that means that the

  • 65:49

  • club was toe

  • 65:50

  • and you pulled it you you pulled it or

  • 65:53

  • you rotate or whatever you did the club

  • 65:55

  • was towing your control and you pinched

  • 65:58

  • it so like I mean the best the best

  • 66:01

  • thing I found to do that is to hit low

  • 66:04

  • cuts with like a 7-iron that are just

  • 66:07

  • like kind of kind of pinched the other

  • 66:09

  • the other huge thing with this and and

  • 66:13

  • this is so golf clubs are made like this

  • 66:15

  • and they have loft on it and to help you

  • 66:20

  • get it up in the air almost everybody

  • 66:22

  • almost everybody who doesn't have lag

  • 66:24

  • tension who is not towing the club

  • 66:26

  • through impact has the ball too far back

  • 66:28

  • in their stance so because they have it

  • 66:31

  • too far back in their stance and then

  • 66:33

  • they put some flip to it but because

  • 66:35

  • they want the hands forward and they

  • 66:38

  • want to drive it lower they put it more

  • 66:39

  • back in their stance the further the

  • 66:41

  • wall goes back in your stand so the more

  • 66:43

  • you kind of have to cast to it to get

  • 66:46

  • some kind of loft and it's just it's a

  • 66:48

  • vicious spiral so the the ball goes back

  • 66:50

  • in your stance so that you can hit it

  • 66:53

  • more compressed but then you flip at it

  • 66:55

  • more because it's back in your stance

  • 66:56

  • and and you're you just you're stuck in

  • 66:58

  • a pattern you'll never get better

  • 67:01

  • really try to hit those seven irons put

  • 67:04

  • the 7-iron in like a 3-wood ball

  • 67:06

  • position and try to hit it low

  • 67:08

  • compressed where you're taking a very

  • 67:11

  • shallow divot to anybody can get

  • 67:13

  • shattering or whatever by hitting like

  • 67:14

  • down on it fifteen the best would the

  • 67:18

  • absolute best way to practice this is to

  • 67:20

  • get on a Forsyte machine which is

  • 67:23

  • something that that's that thing Bryson

  • 67:25

  • Dee Shambo is using all the time if you

  • 67:26

  • can get on like a GC quad or something

  • 67:28

  • where they can read what the what the

  • 67:30

  • club is doing and what the ball is doing

  • 67:33

  • both what you want to do is try to hit

  • 67:35

  • shots not too fast but try to hit shots

  • 67:37

  • where you're hitting down on it with

  • 67:39

  • like a 7-iron like eight degrees or

  • 67:42

  • something or even like five or five six

  • 67:44

  • seven eight something like that but

  • 67:46

  • you're you're launching it low you know

  • 67:50

  • so there so you want to be shallow but

  • 67:53

  • launch it low from a forward ball

  • 67:54

  • position you put those three things

  • 67:56

  • together the only way to do those three

  • 67:58

  • things together is to have lag tension

  • 67:59

  • then start building that and it gets

  • 68:01

  • very difficult once because your body

  • 68:03

  • what

  • 68:04

  • you think create speed are gonna be

  • 68:06

  • things that destroy this so you just got

  • 68:08

  • to keep taking it up taking it up taking

  • 68:10

  • it up until you can do it and then all

  • 68:12

  • of a sudden I had this picture I wanted

  • 68:14

  • to show with you but it's it's pretty

  • 68:15

  • cool if you go to let me see where I

  • 68:18

  • have it on here yeah if you go to Keith

  • 68:20

  • Mitchell's Instagram on there he has and

  • 68:26

  • Keith Mitchell is a guy with great toe

  • 68:28

  • great leg tension right on the PGA Tour

  • 68:31

  • but I usually don't see stuff like this

  • 68:34

  • but he is a picture of a Saints swing

  • 68:37

  • speed sweet sequence of his from when he

  • 68:39

  • was 12 and that showed his impact so now

  • 68:42

  • on tour he's like this he's got great

  • 68:45

  • leg tension but when he was 12 he was

  • 68:47

  • like this and he was totally flipped you

  • 68:50

  • know and I mean and that shows it right

  • 68:52

  • there some guys that he was whirling

  • 68:56

  • golf teams with him you know they just

  • 68:57

  • made that work that kind of flip thing

  • 69:00

  • and they and they maybe they practice

  • 69:02

  • twice as much as Keith did and and other

  • 69:05

  • guys you know other golfers as you're

  • 69:08

  • coming the but Keith at some point

  • 69:11

  • either through good coaching or just

  • 69:13

  • like intuitively figuring out he figured

  • 69:15

  • out that this was not gonna work

  • 69:17

  • and he figured out how am I gonna get it

  • 69:19

  • like that and you know his level just

  • 69:22

  • you know exploded you will never get it

  • 69:25

  • like you would have to be such a

  • 69:27

  • magician with your hands and there are a

  • 69:29

  • couple guys on tour there are a couple

  • 69:30

  • guys even on tour with that head that

  • 69:33

  • don't have lag tension on every shot and

  • 69:35

  • and if you want to see one of them it

  • 69:38

  • would just look at the guy who's been

  • 69:39

  • the best putter on tour for the last 15

  • 69:41

  • years guy has no lag tension at all and

  • 69:46

  • you have to be so good strokes gains

  • 69:49

  • wise in your putting and chipping to be

  • 69:52

  • able to keep a career on the tour if

  • 69:54

  • you're not if you're not towing it and

  • 69:57

  • it just helps everything okay yeah now

  • 70:00

  • you also have you have a course on on

  • 70:04

  • that - don't you like beyond great in

  • 70:07

  • yeah I think it's let me look it up I

  • 70:09

  • think it's be better golf net /bg I I'm

  • 70:12

  • just gonna check that

  • 70:17

  • yep we go to be better golf the dotnet

  • 70:20

  • /bg I so basically like I did this law

  • 70:23

  • like I did a year's worth of videos with

  • 70:25

  • birdie from DST and I had been flip and

  • 70:28

  • I would I was like could not get my head

  • 70:30

  • around like why is this not like any

  • 70:33

  • time I try to hit it hard it's gone I'm

  • 70:35

  • doing those 7-iron things like I was

  • 70:37

  • telling you but anytime I tried to put

  • 70:39

  • any power into it it's gone I found

  • 70:41

  • through like a really weird process

  • 70:43

  • using that for the for the floor site

  • 70:46

  • machining and doing some other things

  • 70:48

  • like I found a way that like I can every

  • 70:51

  • single time guaranteed doing this

  • 70:53

  • certain way like not like a thing you

  • 70:55

  • can do in the golf course but during

  • 70:57

  • this certain way like I can have amazing

  • 70:59

  • awesome lag tension and hit like the

  • 71:01

  • poor quality pure shots but it would be

  • 71:05

  • a little but doing this would be illegal

  • 71:06

  • to do on the golf course

  • 71:07

  • so I made like this little program about

  • 71:10

  • it like I think it's really good like

  • 71:12

  • I've had insane legal I got the results

  • 71:15

  • of a lot of the people who have taken it

  • 71:17

  • have been really good but like I'm not

  • 71:19

  • like the only accreditation at all in

  • 71:22

  • teaching or anything like that I have in

  • 71:24

  • golf is when birdie came out to the

  • 71:27

  • United States I did become a I got my

  • 71:29

  • certification as a DST certified

  • 71:31

  • instructor as far as this delayed his

  • 71:34

  • his leg tension theory and all this

  • 71:36

  • stuff to talk about that's the only

  • 71:37

  • accreditation as a teacher or anything

  • 71:39

  • I've ever had and well that doesn't mean

  • 71:43

  • that someone came rather right right but

  • 71:45

  • but if that is the one part that I do

  • 71:47

  • know about which is if I could know

  • 71:49

  • about anything that would that would be

  • 71:51

  • the one part that I would want to know

  • 71:53

  • about and yeah so on this this course

  • 71:56

  • you be better golf net /bg I be on great

  • 72:00

  • impact I basically found a protocol that

  • 72:02

  • that anybody can do like you can take

  • 72:05

  • the worst flipper in the world and if

  • 72:08

  • they if they do this routine they're

  • 72:11

  • gonna see like hey that's all the lag

  • 72:13

  • tension in the world I would ever one

  • 72:14

  • and then just the very difficult part is

  • 72:17

  • then okay how do I port that on to do it

  • 72:20

  • with with no apparatus with no help or

  • 72:23

  • anything like that on the golf course

  • 72:24

  • that's the that's the personalization

  • 72:26

  • part that's very difficult but that that

  • 72:28

  • first giant step is yeah thanks for

  • 72:30

  • mentioning that yes beyond great impact

  • 72:32

  • it's it's been like it was a moment in

  • 72:34

  • my mind that just like blew my brain up

  • 72:36

  • when I figured this out and it's been a

  • 72:38

  • lot of fun and for everyone who's on

  • 72:41

  • here and actually everyone on who's

  • 72:44

  • following up glove on our email list

  • 72:46

  • I'll send all this out ok great as well

  • 72:50

  • stuff okay so first off thank you for

  • 72:54

  • all that did anyone have any specific

  • 73:00

  • questions here Pat said that Pat was

  • 73:04

  • talking about the about the the towing

  • 73:09

  • of the young so important have any any

  • 73:13

  • questions that they personally wanted to

  • 73:16

  • ask Brendon Shawn are you Anna are you

  • 73:21

  • at a club there or do you just play

  • 73:24

  • public offer yeah no I just played

  • 73:29

  • public I have I have a few friends who

  • 73:31

  • are members at stuff and I'll play I'll

  • 73:34

  • play with them and at their courses but

  • 73:38

  • I'm one of those people who like I like

  • 73:40

  • to play different courses yeah I know

  • 73:41

  • for me feel like it's once you're in for

  • 73:44

  • the membership you you would be like I'm

  • 73:45

  • wasting my money going somewhere else

  • 73:47

  • I'm paying so much further yeah um yeah

  • 73:50

  • exactly

  • 73:51

  • John asked I didn't quite get how to

  • 73:53

  • make my practice more intense that would

  • 73:59

  • just go back to the first tip we said

  • 74:00

  • your practice will become a very intense

  • 74:03

  • once you say like spent $200 just sign

  • 74:06

  • up for a tournament that's just out of

  • 74:07

  • your level so John if you're you know

  • 74:12

  • what what was a shame was there's a guy

  • 74:14

  • that uh be better golfer called ray a

  • 74:17

  • friend of mine that I met through the

  • 74:19

  • channel so he was doing the Golf Channel

  • 74:21

  • AM tour so he he came to he came to one

  • 74:27

  • of our be better golf schools with like

  • 74:29

  • 20 loot sack and and I out in Long Beach

  • 74:32

  • and he also came to the short game

  • 74:36

  • school I did with Timmy Elberton anyway

  • 74:38

  • he was playing pretty regularly on the

  • 74:41

  • on the Golf Channel AM tour

  • 74:44

  • and he had jumped around to a bunch of

  • 74:48

  • different instructors and he was never

  • 74:51

  • like really in the hunt for it but but

  • 74:53

  • he kept being there and all the sudden

  • 74:55

  • something clicked and he won like three

  • 74:57

  • of those events in a single season and

  • 74:59

  • like got to go play in the finals and

  • 75:01

  • everything and that was like really that

  • 75:04

  • was really cool so um and that was that

  • 75:07

  • was the thing that I wanted to bring up

  • 75:08

  • to you and for someone they closed that

  • 75:10

  • though Golf Channel am towards out of

  • 75:12

  • business now I heard yeah so in addition

  • 75:15

  • to everyone out of Orlando they shut

  • 75:19

  • down Orlando everyone's going up - not

  • 75:21

  • everyone not even most oh yeah but their

  • 75:25

  • whole operation is going but they're

  • 75:26

  • firing a lot of people I heard I mean

  • 75:28

  • yeah the only thing that keeping here I

  • 75:31

  • think is the golf now and golf past

  • 75:33

  • people is what it said yeah that's it's

  • 75:38

  • a difficult situation I don't know I

  • 75:40

  • don't know anything about but I've been

  • 75:42

  • I've been you know working for TV

  • 75:43

  • companies my whole life and it's always

  • 75:46

  • chill and everything's cool and then

  • 75:48

  • there one day there's like okay we're

  • 75:49

  • gonna have a meeting and and you walk in

  • 75:51

  • remaining and says there's an air over

  • 75:53

  • the room and you're like oh boy it's

  • 75:55

  • like the executioner's there no but

  • 75:58

  • something that people ask me all the

  • 75:59

  • time this is something I wanted to bring

  • 76:01

  • out so people say to me all the time

  • 76:03

  • like how do you get better at golf if

  • 76:07

  • you're always jumping from like teacher

  • 76:08

  • to teacher to teacher to teacher you

  • 76:10

  • know you're never sticking to one thing

  • 76:12

  • or sticking to one pattern and I was

  • 76:14

  • saying this it's a somebody about it I

  • 76:16

  • was like whoa if I had be better golf or

  • 76:19

  • if I didn't have be better golf I would

  • 76:21

  • be doing the same thing that's what I

  • 76:22

  • was doing like I was I'm always because

  • 76:25

  • I'm like a real curious type anyway like

  • 76:26

  • I'm always going to be looking at tips

  • 76:28

  • on the internet and I'm always gonna be

  • 76:30

  • talking about golf to different types of

  • 76:32

  • people whether I have the Golf Channel

  • 76:33

  • or not but I'm not seeing in the in the

  • 76:38

  • research I've seen and also in the

  • 76:39

  • evidence of the players I've seen that

  • 76:41

  • have gotten better and the players I've

  • 76:43

  • seen that have not gotten better I'm not

  • 76:45

  • seeing a very strong correlation between

  • 76:47

  • sticking with one method and getting

  • 76:50

  • better like there's just as many people

  • 76:54

  • who have stick stuck with the same

  • 76:56

  • teacher and sore stuck with

  • 76:58

  • one method of doing things that have

  • 77:00

  • never gotten better as I would say

  • 77:02

  • there's more players that have jumped

  • 77:03

  • around all different kinds of methods

  • 77:06

  • that end up getting better than people

  • 77:08

  • who is stuck with one method I mean even

  • 77:10

  • if you look at the Justin Rose just

  • 77:12

  • fired his coach and now he's doing it on

  • 77:14

  • his own

  • 77:14

  • Tiger Woods changed he's famously six

  • 77:17

  • times or more and you know even like the

  • 77:21

  • the best players in the world but like

  • 77:23

  • you got a you got the main thing for me

  • 77:26

  • has never been like like I've never

  • 77:29

  • stopped taking lessons from a teacher

  • 77:31

  • because of the information like it's

  • 77:34

  • never almost never and I've like this is

  • 77:37

  • talking like before be better golfing

  • 77:38

  • noticing yeah like and this is the best

  • 77:40

  • advice I could give to a golf teacher

  • 77:42

  • the the main thing that that ever gets

  • 77:45

  • me to stop taking lessons from someone

  • 77:47

  • is just their enthusiasm goes down and

  • 77:50

  • my enthusiasm has stayed the same or

  • 77:52

  • gotten more you know cuz every golf

  • 77:55

  • teacher when you go up they're there for

  • 77:56

  • your first golf lesson or you signed up

  • 77:58

  • for a set of three golf lessons their

  • 78:01

  • enthusiasm about how much better they're

  • 78:03

  • gonna get you is like sky-high lesson

  • 78:06

  • one and by lesson four they're like done

  • 78:09

  • with you they're like for their board is

  • 78:11

  • your problem you know I mean or or maybe

  • 78:14

  • they haven't made a better or anything

  • 78:16

  • like that so that would be the main

  • 78:18

  • thing it's like keep that enthusiasm

  • 78:21

  • high and this guy that I was telling you

  • 78:23

  • about that one on the the Golf Channel

  • 78:25

  • amateur a bunch of times last year

  • 78:28

  • he'd been to everybody bounces around to

  • 78:31

  • a lot of different coaches and he kind

  • 78:33

  • of keeps the things that he likes any

  • 78:35

  • kind of like you know the things that

  • 78:37

  • like he just knows that aren't gonna

  • 78:39

  • click for him he is just kind of like

  • 78:40

  • ignore but I would I would go against

  • 78:43

  • that thing of thinking like oh I just

  • 78:45

  • need one thing to stick to it you right

  • 78:48

  • in some ways you you need to have like

  • 78:50

  • go-to shots in that way but that's not

  • 78:53

  • really how like I think Golf is a lot

  • 78:55

  • more like MMA and a lot less like

  • 78:59

  • archery so like archery like you're

  • 79:02

  • doing that same thing and you're trying

  • 79:03

  • to hit that the bullseye like exactly

  • 79:05

  • every time you're doing and that's kind

  • 79:07

  • of how people think of golf like I'm

  • 79:08

  • precise I'm here I'm lined up and going

  • 79:10

  • there

  • 79:10

  • I think Golf is a lot more

  • 79:12

  • like MMA and you think that the reason

  • 79:14

  • that MMA got so big was they they figure

  • 79:17

  • it out through all these you know Gracie

  • 79:20

  • led tournaments they figured out little

  • 79:21

  • well there's no there's no there's no

  • 79:24

  • like okay it's not gonna be like all

  • 79:26

  • kung-fu guys are all karate guys or even

  • 79:28

  • all Brazilian Jiu Jitsu guys the guys

  • 79:30

  • who are really good at MMA now are guys

  • 79:34

  • who are they're like there's everything

  • 79:37

  • and they're doing boxing and there's

  • 79:39

  • Conor McGregor's doing these weird like

  • 79:41

  • animal body movement things and they're

  • 79:43

  • putting all kinds of stuff and that's

  • 79:45

  • how golf is because it's not one skill

  • 79:47

  • it's like you got to be a putter and you

  • 79:49

  • got to be a chipper and you got to be a

  • 79:51

  • good driver of the ball and driving the

  • 79:53

  • golf ball is very different from doing

  • 79:54

  • you know bunker yeah yeah you got to be

  • 79:59

  • a really good learner and a really

  • 80:01

  • really super adaptable so yeah right pat

  • 80:06

  • pat ask ask Brendon since we are here

  • 80:12

  • any discounts on BGI he's putting he's

  • 80:15

  • 80:34

  • let me know and I'll send it to you for

  • 80:35

  • for 30 bucks Pat said good deal links

  • 80:42

  • see what else we got here your swing

  • 80:46

  • speed I saw you do the swing speed

  • 80:51

  • sticks were you able to maintain your

  • 80:54

  • swing speed after you increased it uh no

  • 80:58

  • not really I mean I I can like I can

  • 81:02

  • spike it like to get high like right now

  • 81:04

  • like I measured it yesterday was 116 was

  • 81:07

  • like a good one a pretty solid one and

  • 81:10

  • then I'm like golf course speed more

  • 81:12

  • like 113 something like that but just if

  • 81:17

  • you're not like you gotta be like

  • 81:19

  • because that's what I did like I went

  • 81:20

  • out to Kansas and and I did this thing

  • 81:22

  • where I got up to 172 miles an hour ball

  • 81:25

  • speed because I wanted to

  • 81:26

  • 170 and John and I thought empo like

  • 81:30

  • we're really working hard like grinding

  • 81:32

  • hard over two days and we did it you

  • 81:34

  • know and I was I was and and the 170 I

  • 81:38

  • hit wasn't like some crazy shot it was

  • 81:39

  • like everything lined up was perfect and

  • 81:42

  • when I came back I was like alright I

  • 81:45

  • want to I know that it'll go away if I

  • 81:47

  • don't keep up with it so I started doing

  • 81:48

  • these classes with like some subscribers

  • 81:50

  • and stuff where I was doing the sweet

  • 81:52

  • and swing speed sticks and stuff but

  • 81:55

  • what I found was that doing the speed

  • 81:59

  • stick swings and stuff you have to

  • 82:00

  • basically be doing that stuff right on

  • 82:04

  • the range only I would say like I don't

  • 82:07

  • really like doing it in the street

  • 82:09

  • anymore like I was doing a lot in the

  • 82:11

  • street or the backyard or things like

  • 82:12

  • that I don't really love that anymore I

  • 82:15

  • because it starts to creep into your

  • 82:18

  • regular golf swing it starts giving you

  • 82:20

  • like a pattern that's like not that

  • 82:22

  • ideal like you need to like I would

  • 82:24

  • rather have you like do that protocol

  • 82:26

  • that Gogh stick Pro protocol or whatever

  • 82:29

  • but you got to be then like hitting

  • 82:31

  • shots in between it you always got to be

  • 82:33

  • relating it back to golf like you're

  • 82:36

  • because I found that the more like one

  • 82:40

  • of the worst times I was swinging the

  • 82:42

  • worst was when I was doing the speed

  • 82:45

  • sticks and all that stuff the most and I

  • 82:47

  • think now that I'm starting to get into

  • 82:50

  • it again to build my speed I it's it's

  • 82:53

  • got to be like it's got to be always

  • 82:56

  • like popping back to golf like okay you

  • 82:59

  • see how I'm swinging the heavy end now

  • 83:01

  • and the way that feels let me grab my

  • 83:04

  • driver and now now try to feel that the

  • 83:06

  • heavy on through there or see the light

  • 83:07

  • in here and that feels it's always got

  • 83:09

  • to be constantly poured back in the golf

  • 83:12

  • like it and just moving your body faster

  • 83:14

  • like like for guys like Bryson to Shambo

  • 83:17

  • like who races swing speed crazy with

  • 83:20

  • the whatever they're called super speed

  • 83:22

  • six that works for him because he's

  • 83:24

  • hitting balls every day he's probably

  • 83:26

  • hitting balls in most hours of every day

  • 83:29

  • that he's not you know and or drinking

  • 83:32

  • protein shakes so that'll work for him

  • 83:36

  • because he's constantly golfing and I

  • 83:37

  • even think like for the college golfers

  • 83:39

  • that

  • 83:40

  • that might be okay but for for guys who

  • 83:43

  • like let's say you get you're able to

  • 83:44

  • get to the range twice a week and then

  • 83:46

  • you play once a week the protocol to

  • 83:49

  • make you better you have to be doing

  • 83:51

  • that three times a week for a while well

  • 83:53

  • that's going to be a lot of times that

  • 83:55

  • you're doing that and you're not hitting

  • 83:56

  • balls so that's the whole thing also

  • 83:59

  • about golf fitness is like I the what

  • 84:02

  • you have to do in goth Fitness for an in

  • 84:04

  • order for it to show up in your golf

  • 84:06

  • game is like a lot like way more time

  • 84:09

  • than then sean has or I have four four

  • 84:12

  • you know you got to be a full-time

  • 84:14

  • golfer so you to get a benefit out of

  • 84:17

  • golf fitness for so so really like yeah

  • 84:22

  • I would use that those SuperSpeed sticks

  • 84:24

  • and stuff like that and I but how I'm

  • 84:26

  • using them now is like it's got to be

  • 84:28

  • right at the very time that I'm actually

  • 84:31

  • hitting drivers gotcha

  • 84:34

  • Lauren said he had Lauren had to go but

  • 84:37

  • he wanted to thank you for all the

  • 84:39

  • information here who's the best player

  • 84:43

  • you've ever played with I would say well

  • 84:49

  • I could narrow it down to a few so I

  • 84:51

  • played I played golf at Hartwell with

  • 84:53

  • this guy called Rory he he's like the

  • 84:55

  • number 700 player in the world or no 550

  • 84:57

  • player in the world he won on the Asian

  • 85:00

  • Tour for the first time last year in

  • 85:01

  • India and that was a cool experience

  • 85:04

  • because this course that I'm talking

  • 85:06

  • about Hartwell is an 18-hole course that

  • 85:07

  • he grew up on that's only like 130 yard

  • 85:10

  • holes and less so playing with him was

  • 85:13

  • was really cool because he hits these

  • 85:16

  • low flighted wedge shots and they're

  • 85:18

  • always pretty close and if he misses it

  • 85:21

  • he's got a lot of different shots that

  • 85:23

  • he's learned so that that was pretty

  • 85:25

  • cool but the best it's it's it's hard to

  • 85:33

  • say because different guys do do

  • 85:34

  • different things really well I did this

  • 85:39

  • thing called the be better golf

  • 85:40

  • Challenge series that I want to start

  • 85:42

  • doing more so remember the old shells

  • 85:44

  • wonderful world of golf matches well I

  • 85:46

  • didn't call them be better golf

  • 85:48

  • Challenge series so match so it was it

  • 85:51

  • was just one match so far but I want to

  • 85:53

  • and I took Monte shine boom who's a very

  • 85:55

  • good player and put him against another

  • 85:58

  • guy who's a YouTube channel called Blair

  • 85:59

  • McKeithen from formula golf and I put up

  • 86:03

  • $800 to the winner and I filmed it and

  • 86:06

  • then I put it out on Bieber torn off is

  • 86:10

  • like a pay-per-view thing be better got

  • 86:11

  • to fund the purse so it was cool cuz

  • 86:13

  • like they got paid and like people saw

  • 86:15

  • it was like nine dollars and yeah it was

  • 86:18

  • and and it turned out really cool and

  • 86:20

  • that's that's the the craziest display

  • 86:26

  • if you watch that video it's actually

  • 86:27

  • free now and be better golf if you type

  • 86:29

  • in YouTube be better Golf Challenge

  • 86:31

  • series that's the craziest display of

  • 86:33

  • driving that I ever saw from two guys it

  • 86:37

  • was like about a hundred degrees out at

  • 86:39

  • Ram's hill which is like in the is in

  • 86:42

  • the desert so so it's like the ball was

  • 86:44

  • carrying forever but both these guys and

  • 86:46

  • Monty's like a big dude that like you he

  • 86:49

  • gets like 185 miles an hour of ball

  • 86:52

  • speed and this other guy gets like 180

  • 86:54

  • miles an hour ball speed or or maybe the

  • 86:56

  • same as Monty and they were hitting like

  • 86:58

  • 400 yard drives like this one hold that

  • 87:00

  • was really downhill and there's like the

  • 87:01

  • drives they were hitting were just like

  • 87:03

  • crazy but probably the the best golfer

  • 87:08

  • the best golfer I know that I ever

  • 87:10

  • played with it would probably be Eric

  • 87:11

  • Mike tree who the accident you know he's

  • 87:15

  • he's just so like he was telling me like

  • 87:19

  • I was saying he was telling me so many

  • 87:21

  • good mental game tips I'm like yeah the

  • 87:24

  • mental game for you you're like flushing

  • 87:25

  • it and it's either like it's either like

  • 87:27

  • left side of the green right side of the

  • 87:29

  • green or like you know it's like yeah

  • 87:31

  • obviously usually okay I'm gonna hit my

  • 87:33

  • drive over here and they're gonna have

  • 87:34

  • an angle over here it's like well yeah I

  • 87:36

  • mean and yeah he mean he just the only

  • 87:39

  • reason I say he's probably the best

  • 87:41

  • player I played with is because I mean

  • 87:43

  • making birdies is so easy for him he's

  • 87:46

  • not insanely long like he hits a Fiat at

  • 87:48

  • 300 yards but but uh but he hits his

  • 87:52

  • iron shots so close he has so many

  • 87:54

  • chances for birdie it's like he made I

  • 87:57

  • think seven birdies in this round and

  • 87:59

  • was just like and he was and I was

  • 88:00

  • asking him questions the whole time it

  • 88:02

  • was like it was so easy for so yeah yeah

  • 88:07

  • does comes off like it's just like it's

  • 88:10

  • it seems so smooth like when he swings

  • 88:13

  • he's like never muscling anyways like

  • 88:16

  • yeah so yeah so he's probably the best

  • 88:20

  • golfer so so I'm thinking about doing a

  • 88:24

  • be better golf challenge match of Eric

  • 88:27

  • versus Milo which I think would be

  • 88:29

  • really interesting because my Milo is

  • 88:33

  • the best driver of the ball I've ever

  • 88:35

  • seen like I saw him hit probably 50 or

  • 88:39

  • 60 drives because we're on the range and

  • 88:42

  • on the course and stuff and he missed

  • 88:44

  • one drive of those 50 or 60 and the

  • 88:46

  • reason he missed it was I was asking him

  • 88:48

  • like okay when did the hand square and

  • 88:49

  • you kinda think I'd like a snap hook but

  • 88:52

  • that was just on the range like fifty

  • 88:55

  • nine drives hit just like nuts perfect I

  • 88:58

  • mean he's swinging so fast

  • 89:02

  • yeah it really swings it yeah I don't

  • 89:05

  • that's the thing I don't know like

  • 89:06

  • that's what I'm so this is what I'm

  • 89:08

  • going through and be better golf now as

  • 89:09

  • I'm trying to figure out can I do my

  • 89:11

  • lows more of a slinging body work thing

  • 89:15

  • with I like a really active right hands

  • 89:19

  • like a spanking thing you know Milo said

  • 89:22

  • like he doesn't want any arms in the

  • 89:24

  • swing like feeling at all tony is saying

  • 89:27

  • that the arms that have that's to lead

  • 89:28

  • the swing so I'm seeing is there a way

  • 89:30

  • for me and maybe there's not but I'm

  • 89:32

  • trying to figure it out is there a way

  • 89:33

  • for me to have that that start of the

  • 89:36

  • body and then and than but still have

  • 89:38

  • this active spank or slap that I like to

  • 89:41

  • have so that's what I'm going with

  • 89:43

  • I'll what helped me a lot that I've

  • 89:45

  • worked on on the range last couple of

  • 89:48

  • days and you and Milo kind of covered

  • 89:50

  • this it will one is like just my posture

  • 89:53

  • in general but one thing that that I was

  • 89:56

  • watching I was watching something on

  • 89:58

  • athletic motion golf and a couple other

  • 90:00

  • people and like one of the biggest

  • 90:03

  • differences between a good golfer and a

  • 90:05

  • bad golfer is side bend and like that

  • 90:09

  • the difference between pros and Am's

  • 90:11

  • like pros are almost at like 40 degrees

  • 90:14

  • amateurs or like they're solely always

  • 90:17

  • come flat huh yeah right okay

  • 90:20

  • so so I've started working on that and

  • 90:24

  • something that I think Milo said it in

  • 90:27

  • your guys's and your guys's talk is like

  • 90:31

  • you know the side bed needs to come from

  • 90:34

  • like around your ribcage and I think a

  • 90:36

  • lot of times I was doing it more from my

  • 90:38

  • best tilting yeah you want to I would

  • 90:41

  • you want to end but you don't want to

  • 90:42

  • tilt yeah and so the last few days I've

  • 90:46

  • been practicing I've been practicing

  • 90:49

  • that at the range and it's felt it's

  • 90:51

  • felt really really good one cool thing

  • 90:53

  • to do is get a long stick and this is

  • 90:55

  • something else I saw so if you can see

  • 90:57

  • but see me more like this and you try AK

  • 91:00

  • thing where you go like this and you go

  • 91:02

  • see how my body so I'm like backwards

  • 91:05

  • paddling like a kayak vector right

  • 91:09

  • exactly so that that kind of shows

  • 91:11

  • that's basically what's happening when

  • 91:14

  • you're swinging you know at least vacant

  • 91:18

  • so that's something you can do like at

  • 91:20

  • home or whatever to just kind of warm up

  • 91:22

  • and kind of like ya know what those

  • 91:24

  • muscles are supposed to kind of be doing

  • 91:26

  • yeah but um someone asked if you watch

  • 91:32

  • txg the club fitting on youtube and will

  • 91:35

  • you be getting a GC quad soon I was

  • 91:39

  • watching yeah no I haven't seen I

  • 91:41

  • haven't see I've seen a couple of their

  • 91:42

  • videos I know they're like they're super

  • 91:43

  • in-depth and I know that they use and

  • 91:45

  • like them like they like the like I like

  • 91:48

  • the GC quad like people ask me this

  • 91:51

  • sometimes like I like the GC I'd rather

  • 91:52

  • have that than more expensive Trackman

  • 91:55

  • definitely I think the numbers and I've

  • 91:58

  • talked to the guys from when I went to

  • 92:02

  • the PGA show I talked to the guys from

  • 92:04

  • 4sight Golf and stuff like that and I I

  • 92:06

  • trust the numbers that come out of that

  • 92:08

  • more as far as like club head data and

  • 92:12

  • and really to be able to use the GC quad

  • 92:15

  • as a machine to get better you need to

  • 92:18

  • be able to see what the club's doing

  • 92:20

  • that costs an additional to be able to

  • 92:22

  • get that data cost I think an additional

  • 92:24

  • $5,000 or something so so like kids you

  • 92:28

  • can get a GC quad I think for like maybe

  • 92:30

  • I don't know these numbers but $15,000

  • 92:32

  • or $14,000

  • 92:34

  • then if you wanted to be able to see

  • 92:35

  • it's just like a software patch kind of

  • 92:37

  • like you know like in a Tesla like

  • 92:39

  • unlocking auto drive it's just they can

  • 92:42

  • all do it it's like but for you to have

  • 92:44

  • them unlock the ability to be able to

  • 92:47

  • read the stickers on a club yeah for

  • 92:50

Breakdown of the Top 3 Tips for Amateur Golfers...

Sign Up for a Golf Tournament Just Above Your Level

The reason this will help an amateur golfer is they will actually be laser focused on their practice sessions. Amateurs will actually practice instead of just hitting a bunch of balls. They will actually practice their short game and putting. 

Build an Obstacle Course for Practice and Feedback

Don't be embarrassed to set up a camera and some pool noodles. You need immediate feedback to produce a result or to develop skills. Practice stations or obstacle courses can help you get better faster.

Tow the Club Through Impact

Brendon shared that best thing anyone can do is tow the club through impact sometimes referred as lag tension. When you can tow the club through impact you will gain consistency, a better dispersion and more distance.
