Golf Pre-Shot Routine: Importance of the Waggle

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

The best way to lower your scores in golf, the short game. Hey everybody my names Jorge Arteta, golf professional and instructor and I love, love, love the short game. Come on out with us today and let's see if we can help you lower your scores.

Welcome everyone to BombTech golf Academy where today we are going to look at the pre-swing and what you can do to loosen yourself up. You wonder hey why those guys doing what they do on Tv sometimes and so we are going to go over that today. So let’s get started.

You are out there, and you took your assessment back there and you’re over here on the ball. What you see a lot of people do sometimes folks is something that looks like this. This is called waggling. What people are trying to do here, they can up and down, they can waggle side to side, where every you’re waggling. What they are trying to do is get loose, your arms should almost feel like spaghetti or rubber bands. What they are doing is just getting loose before the shot goes. You won’t see them do this as long as we are doing here right now but it gives you the idea.

Also, you will see some people take the club back before they swing. What they are doing here is they are trying to set up their tempo and make sure they are not going too fast or too slow is what you will normally see. Other folks are going to try and make sure the club head is to the sky and that they’re set up probably back here too. All those things can go on in their mind and that’s okay during a pre-swing.

Let’s see what we can do here, I like to waggle. Your grip is really, really loose, we have talked about grip a lot here before. Where 10 would be the tightest and 1 would be the loosest and I am probably at a 2 or 3, it’s pretty loose of what I am doing here. Again, this is just an idea for you, maybe an option where you can just waggle and try to feel loose. You don’t want to grip it tight here, you don’t want to just look at it and think 20 different thoughts here. You just want to relax and get loose.

Let’s see what it would look like, from back here you’re going to assess your shot, you’re going to assess your target, and kind of figure out where you’re going to go. Over here in terms of today’s episode we are looking at the waggle. So, I might waggle, I might look at the target, but I am getting loose here. From here I might take one, I might take two takeaways just to see how they feel. Then you will see those folks take the shot.

Again folks the idea is to relax and try to get into that mode where you are really, really comfortable and you don’t have to feel like you’re so tight that you can’t hit the ball like the way it is suppose to be. Let’s look at it again, so in summary what we are trying to show you here today is just a couple things to try to help you relax before your swing. So again they call these pre-swings. First thing we talked about was the waggling, kind of staying loose, kind of keeping your arms feeling like spaghetti. Second thing we talked about is maybe doing a takeaway. If you’re talking to your instructor or maybe they are having you do a couple of things, maybe you guys are working on your take away right now. So we get here and then we are going to let it go.

While I was talking to you guys I felt so loose I even forgot I was holding a club and I just swung at it. Hopefully that can help you folks maybe one or two tips here today. We really appreciate your time, thanks for being with us on BombTech Golf academy.

Sincerely,

Video Transcript:

What’s up guys, Sully here owner of BombTech Golf in Williston, Vermont. I was actually going through some of our old blog posts, we just relaunched our website. I was reading through this blog I wrote, don’t get lost in the blog term, called the American Nightmare. It was essentially my story of how I got fired from my day job when BombTech was just a side hustle. I don’t know if everyone knows this, but I feel like everyone does. I think it is an interesting story if you do not know.

I am going to mess up all the years, I think it was 2013 I was working as a sales director for an engineering firm in Randolph. I was making good money, killing it, had a one-hour commute like a lot of you guys out there working 9 to 5 with a one-hour commute. I would leave at I think 7:30, I would go, comeback, get home at 6 or 7 every single night. Didn’t really think anything of it, was working the grind, BombTech was just a side hustle. I was selling like a hundred clubs a month, pretty minimal. It was starting to pick, and I thought about BombTech all the time it was my obsession, but I worked hard every day. I actually found out my wife was pregnant, and this was at the same time my boss said why don’t you come with me. So he brings me into his office, it was on a Monday, so I drove all the way down to Randolph which was an hour away. He goes let’s have a chat, I go come in my office what do you want to chat about? He goes no, no, no come down with me. He walks me down to the HR office and he goes today is your last day and your last paycheck was last week.

If you guys know me I am pretty well tempered, but I had to go get water, so I told him listen, I am going to go get some water, so I don’t knock you out. So I went got a glass of water, took a deep breathe I said alright I am getting fired, last paycheck last week is not cool. So I sat back down and said, what is my job? He goes to sell. I go what are sales and our sales are doubled. I go so how didn’t I do my job? It didn’t matter I was performing, we were killing it, I grew the company a ton for them. Didn’t matter you are being let go, so you need to leave. I go well you can either physically remove me or pay me all my commissions and what you owe me. They decided based off that to pay me what I was do.

They paid me, and I got home early from work, which I was never early. The wife was like what are you doing home? I told her, well I got fired. She’s like are you going to this BombTech thing full time? That was the kick in the a** I need to make the commitment to make BombTech Golf happen. It was from a side hustle and I will never look at a job the same way and I will probably never be able to work for someone again. I thank that person, well not really, I am glad it happened because it really was what I needed to allow for this to all go down. It’s just a crazy story and I can’t believe it actually happened and I will tell you what. I had my first kid on the way, was recently fired and it was not yet full time. I used to work 20 hours a day, 7 days a week and I just want to thank you guys out there for listening to this story. As well for every single golfer for taking a chance and pulled the pin and supported BombTech Golf and myself. It is an amazingly competitive world and it’s only because of you guys that I have been able to go from fired and a kid on the way and a side hustle. To a full time thing where we have sold over 150,000 golf clubs. Blows my mind every day, not every day is easy. I work my a** off, everyone does, and I just want to say thank you guys. I appreciate it and hit that subscribe button, pull the pin!

How to Keep the Correct Posture During the Golf Swing?

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

Hi this is Jeff Crittenden, I am a current teaching pro. I am a PGA member, I just won the 2017 world long drive master’s division, with a 383 yard drive.

So we are going to talk about in-swing posture. What in-swing posture is when you set up in your golf posture you are going to stay in that golf posture to swing. I am not big on swing training aids, but today I know everyone has one of these, we are going to use your golf bag as a training aid.

So when you setup and what I see is when you setup to swing, people will swing and come out of posture. What that will do is lead to more tension in your swing, face is very hard to control down at impact. A good drill to do is to get your golf bag, setup so you can feel it back here. I am then going to turn in my backswing, I am going to turn to hit it and I still feel it in my back. So on, on, and then after my swing I come up off. What I see a lot of people doing is they get here, and they move this way and try and hit it. Very hard to repeat that golf swing if you’re doing that. Training aid, golf bag, lean it up against you swing back keep it touching your back hip. Turn your left hip and then come up off. If you try it, I guarantee you will lower your handicap! Thank you.

I am pumped to talk....Bombtech Irons

Posted by Tyler Sullivan on

What’s up guys Sully here owner of BombTech Golf with our newly designed BombTech irons. Same performance just a brand-new look coming at you. We took your feedback from the last year and a half with our grenade design that a lot of people thought looked like a keyboard. It’s all good, my heart is broken, but it is all good. We made it a brushed aluminum badge for you.

We designed these irons to have a traditional mid topline, so they don’t look overly fat. But then we wanted to make a large uncut cavity, so that helps you get airborne easier. Also, will help you with off center hits, which I need a lot of help with. With the weight placements here, you’re of center hits are going to be more forgiving and not be as damaging.

My favorite part about the BombTech irons is we have got an unsupported face, so it is very hot. So high COR (Coefficient of Restitution), you get a high rebound effect, so they will go deep. We have got traditional lofts on here nothing jacked up at all. We have got a 4 through pitching wedge set. So these are overall designed to be super forgiving, accurate and easy to hit guys. Thank you so much and as always, they are back with a 60 day on course guarantee, so you can try them for yourself on your course against any iron you want. Pull the pin!

Sincerely,
