Good Shot Selection

How do you know what shot to hit when 60 yards from the flag?

Course conditions and hole set-up are always a factor.

    Hi CJ. would it be possible to see the end result(as in the 3 wedge video)I think it would be easier to grasp the concept if I could actually see where the ball pitches and finishes. With Thanks, James. Keep up the good work

      James,
      I will look into that suggestion. Thanks for letting me know what you need as this does help when I shoot videos. Keep in touch and talk to you soon.
      Keep em Long and Straight,

    C. J., I actually gave up golf shortly after becoming age 55! It was tormenting since for years I was a “short but straight” hitter who once shot a score of 63, with two bogies, by missing two six foot puts! And this was when I was young and could not hit a tee-shot more than 230 yards without some roll! University of Memphis players would then (1965-1970) would consistantly carry their drives over my drive plus my roll!

    But as I continued to play, I found out that I could hit the ball farther! And up till and afer I turned age 55 I was hitting the ball at least 50 yards off the tee, than I was at age 21! And I could count upon about 250 yards of carry! I then consistantly hit my best tee-shots over 280 or so! (sometimes 340 or so). But I also lost my “short game” and could no longer score!

    Note in my younger days I was considered as one of the best putters of my group! But, that like my “depth perception” left me! yea gads!

    So, for a period of about 12 years, I left the game of “golf course” golf and became a “driving range”golfer!

    But now, I am even overwhlemed by the “new clubs”

    So, just what are these? Things like “hybrids”, etc.?

    But now at age 66 I tend to find that it is harder and harder to hit a drive more than 240 yards (at most)!

    It is sad that my “body” says “It feels the same” but the results continue to go down! Note that I still work in a position where I am kept in relative condition! I am a “bellboy!”

    I try to practice, but see no results, except upon strange times!

    There is no consistancy for my shots!
    Is there any way for me to expect improvement?

    Regards,
    Ron

      Ron – I assure you… there is hope. I’ve worked with many students frustrated with declining results in their game. My first recommendation is always my Signature Series system. It helps you get back to basics and is VERY easy on the body. You can find it here – http://perfectconnectiongolfswing.com/signature-series. This program will help you stay connected which will help your distance. Stay in touch.. let me know how things progress.

    Hi CJ, I likewise have felt frustrated many times including the series videos by not seeing what the end result is of all the shots you make.
    Many thanks for all the tips

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Great Suggestion Phil. Next time I’m on the course filming I’ll see if its possible to incorporate the results. Thanks for your suggestion, CJ

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Phil Chadd,
      Thanks Phil for the blog post. We will try to see if we can do this, but remember that it is very difficult to see on T.V. What you are watching on a broadcast is sometimes 3 cameras, and a blimp shot. Unfortunately we do not have that budget and the cameras are not as big as those you see at golf tournaments, but I will talk to the producer and see what he can or cannot do. I agree with you and wish this was possible.
      Keep em Long and Straight,
      CJ

    Were do you practice the shots?.Not allowed to practice on my golf course and not on driving range?No ball games allowed on spare land no room at block of flats

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Keith,
      Thanks for the blog post. I am confused. You stated your not allowed to practice on driving range? Find anywhere to practice…Be creative. If your on the course drop an extra ball sometimes. The more you play and do this then you will be ready. I am sure you can find a field somewhere and hit a few shots. Let me know if I was mistaken about your blog post.
      Keep em Long and Straight,
      CJ

    Hi CJ,

    In the transition how fast is the down swing. I seem to be getting out of sequence when I try to swing fast. How fast should the downswing be compared to the backswing?
