As with most issues in the golf swing, poor strikes usually stem from mistakes at address. The number one fault to beware of is setting the ball too far forward at address. This causes your hands to be too far back encouraging a ‘ground-first’ strike. So before we move onto the golf ball striking drills, check your ball position. The other issue to look out for is your posture fiundamentals. I see so many amateurs with unathletic, lazy postures which makes a good strike almost impossible.
Garden City Golf Club is one of the most celebrated courses in the world, a Devereux Emmett/Walter Travis collaboration that, thanks in part to Tom Doak’s more recent renovations, Golf Digest ranks as No. 46 in the U.S. and No. 9 in New York. Set just 20 miles east of Manhattan, the club offers its members a respite from their everyday burdens: a comfortable old clubhouse; a rolling, pastoral golf course; and a team of seasoned caddies.
Winter workGetting the technique right with the lofted pitch shot is very important, as I’ll explain shortly, but it’s also an area of the game that requires feel and judgement, which can only be attained by working hard. The winter is a great time to practise your distance control, and when the new season begins you’ll be confident with your yardages.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
