You guys MUST hit the approach with big muscles So that it can be consistent. There is no such distance without having a consistency. Hello “Bang-pro channel” subscribers, this is a Professional golfer, Bang Dasol. Today we are going to learn about Approach. Approach has an important role for reducing the number of hits. Therefore, if the beginners want to reduce a score in the most effective way, I suggest you guys to learn Approach. If you learn it, You will get to know a sense of “how much swing I am going to have to play in a place.” Listen to me carefully. Actually, Approach can be a short class if I briefly speaking, But it is better for you to do it right once you learn. So, I am going to publish serially. I am thinking around 4~5 times, but not sure yet how long it will be. Since today is the first day of learning Approach, I prepared some basic stuff. First of all, we are starting with address. They say the foot span is the width of the pelvis, Actually, it is right to stand in the width of pelvis. Because even it is too narrow, if you shake your swing a little bit more, You can’t really utilize your lower-body. You can feel the shift on both sides, the hitting point is a little shaky if the lower body is unstable If you cut your legs off a lot, you won’t be able to hit them delicately, right? As like I said before, that’s why standing in the width of pelvis is right. You need to be more aware of the standing point. First, stand at the shape of number 11. Your left foot should be opened. Because it is better to stand the lower-body as an open-stand. Try it left spike front nose to one third of right foot We need to adjust the width here. What if the left foot spike front nose opens like this? The width of the stand is bigger than the original one, right? Please don’t stand to open your heels all the times Like the heel coming in If you stand in the stands, you won’t fail to control the width So, based on the width of the pelvis, left foot, and front nose You need you to step back to one-third of your right foot. It is not like the front nose is going to be far away from me, but It is like the thought of one’s heel coming in. Okay let’s get the stand position. Then what happens is My chest is facing the 12 o’clock directions. But my lower body is twisted. The bellybutton should be addressed as a standard of 11 o’clock. Therefore, lower-body is not supposed to be like this, but Has to be twisted at 11 o’clock directions. It goes to around 11 or 12 o’clock directions. You need to address from here I assume that all of you guys get the point until here. Now, this is an important thing. Why do we stand with twisting our lower body and upper body? I am pretty sure you guys have a lot of different opinions about this. After hitting the Face-angle And to maintain to the Open angle, Some of you may think I have to stand on the open stand where the lower body is rotating. Or just open-standing The left arm doesn’t hang in his left pelvis. The Through is going well. However, I will teach you guys what I analyzed. Approach is only the least part of the swing. It starts from the least unit of the shots. There is a 3M approach. 5M,10M,15M are there as well. However, shots are either full swing or half swing Since it goes from the big units or concepts You can feel coiling or You can use big muscles. On the other hands, approach is a really small range of swings. It’s hard to feel the coiling and hits you a lot with your hands. When I had a group lesson, Many of them stand as the shape of number 11 and just use your hands to lift for the Approach. Ladies and gentlemen, you guys MUST hit the approach with big muscles So that it can be consistent. There is no such distance without having a consistency. But there are such an approach with using hands. You can think of it as a fall when you’re all in the air. You have to practice your approach every day for an hour or an hour and a half to keep the sensation. If not, I can’t tell you anything. So, I’m going to open the stand to make the coiling. Twisting at 11 o’clock wise and then turning to the 12 o’clock directions, right? In that case, the coil is working So, you can feel the coiling even if you don’t force your body enough power. I am not talking about having it with your lower-body. It is like this. If you turn around like this, you will be like this. You can stand the address, and backswing like this. But there should be different if I start from here and the pelvis from 12 o’clock directions, right? So, you have to turn the lower body to the 11 o’clock position so you can start using large muscles. Check this out. It is not like you are swinging with hands, but -Stretching your arms and hit- To wind the spring of a spring and strike with a bouncing force This approach is a good approach And a consistent approach. Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, Stand the address in 11 or 12 o’clock wise Like I just did now, pulling my left arm with my right hand. What about my left arm? Make it straight Of course, when you approach it, you can make it stretch out a little and Your lats may be short, and they may bend a little, but This is just a practice. With your left arm stretched out, wind it with your right hand. Turn it to 11 o’clock wise, and then if you are coiling, You can feel your belly, your back, and your body parts sticking out. I will put a little weight here. But the axis is here and does not follow. Because I have a little bit of weight here, -swing- Let’s do one more thing. You don’t go out by hand when you are swinging, but It should be starting from my pelvis and feel left at the same time. Go straight and turn left, this feeling. You are rhythming with your lower body It should be feeling like you are left-facing at the same time If you arrange it, it will go straight to the coiling and then Turn to the lower body, drag my upper body, Hitting the ball with the club, so The quality of the ball is getting heavier And you can take some consistent hits. It is not even easy to have a 10M Approach. On the contrary, people who are good at approach are good at minimum, based on what I said previously. 10M & 15M are really easy, right? No matter what they are easy. But those who are good at 50CM, 1M, 2M are the ones who have the right Approach positions. Even they do only this much, they are rotating their body well. It is like this. If you do this kind of thing, you can feel a much of “discriminating power.” Those who learned how to Approach well or not May seem different. For those who can hit the ball impact without a full swing For those who can do it right even if for 1M For those who try to hit it right with using hands even if for 5M There are differences between those two types of people. So, you need to keep in mind that you are Approaching with using big muscles. The fundamental of it is the right position of the lower-body It must be facing towards 11 o’clock. My chest must be facing towards 12 o’clock. Shoulders should be parallel to the target directions, which is where the pin is. It actually is not a big deal if the shoulders are a little bit opened, but it is better not to. The lower-body is facing towards 11 o’clock. Even if it is twisted, It is important to keep the distance between the left and the right arm. These are all wrong positions. The distance with the navel 11 o’clock, chest 12 o’clock. When you are back-swinging It is right position to do it when everything is maintained. Nothing is better when you are doing in a wrong position. I think it would be good if you are looking at yourself at the mirror and practicing. Also, from now on, you need to practice Approaching with coiling even for small unit of swing And keep in mind that you need keep the consistency. Keep practicing what we learned today And the next time, I will teach you guys how to make a better impact And how to use your arms right. Because the arm movement is really important as well. For those who hit and the angle of the Club is rotating like this, You guys need to keep your eyes on to the next lesson So that you all get to know how to hit the ball compact. I am looking forward to seeing you guys on next class. Today, I explained to you guys the basic and fundamental formation. Keep repeating it, and I want you to review the positions we learned today repeatedly if you can’t make the good positions. See you guys next time. Press the Subscribe and Thumb-up button please. Remember once again! Never keep your leg stiff, and push your hip like this. No more of this! Okay? Hello Bang pro channel subscribers, it’s pro golfer Dasol Bang Today, we are going to have our second lesson on “Approach” Last time, we talked about “Address” which is a basic yet essential concept and some mechanisms about it Today, we are going to focus mainly about the top part of the body and ball placin To add some more accuracy. First of all, lets see how we put our weight on when we do the address Put your feet straight side to side, and then put back your left feet a bit Then don’t turn your fore foot but the heel inward That turns the bottom part of body to the direction of 11’o clock, and the top part to 12’o clock. Okay, now we know the posture for addressing. Now, what about the putting the weight on? There are many people who keep their right arm stiff like this. The weight should slightly be on the left leg, Instead of putting all the weight in there. If you do that, your pelvis might be pushed over like this. It looks very unstable, right? Who gets more unstable whenever putting the weight on the left side might’ve been doing the same thing. If you do this, the club stands straight And hits the ball more aggressively So where should we focus the weight on? It’s mainly on the back thigh, above of back heel And also weight on the hip Think of leaning on one foot. Do I look like a hipster? haha Lean on the left leg when you do the address And if you turn right leg a little inward, You can easily put the weight on the left leg. Just when you do the address in this way There is a natural shift in the weight. But if you keep your right leg stiff and try to do the address The hip overly goes up. The bottom part of the body could be shaky and unstable when you try to address. If we sum it up, how do you put your weight? Leaning on, leaning on the left foot And turn the right knee slightly inward and keep it like this. And now what about the ball placing? It could be very different depending on the stance, The size or style. However, I don’t think it should go off more than The size of hall cup. I recommend you to place the ball in front of the right big toe, within 1cm If you hold the club and address in this setting, Your two arms and shaft will make the shape of alphabet “y” naturally. We’ll fist go with the height of the waist. This club is 56 degrees. Setting the distance in 10M, Lets learn about “Approach” around the green. Swing the club until the height of the pelvis, and make the shape ‘y’ with arms like before. ‘y’ that you made while doing the address stays the same when you do the back swing. I didn’t necessarily do the cocking, but since the weight in on the left side And there’s a hinge on the right wrist from the address It looks like you are doing the coking or have the hinge While doing the back swing. So, don’t try to do anything extra. Don’t place your club above your hands. And put the head under your hands. You don’t change the placement of weight, it’s keeping the weight On the left feet when swinging. That’s the proper back swing. Like this, keep the ‘y shape’, even when you are doing the impact, and keep the ‘y shape’ after hitting the ball also. On the first day, I showed you the proper posture when hitting the ball Just like this. What do you do in down swing? The bottom part of your body moves first. After the bottom part leads the movement, the top part moves along with it The arms are in the top part of the body, and arms hold the club. So, when the movement starts in the bottom part of the body, the energy goes up to The top part of the body naturally, Straight up to the top part, from the bottom. We’ll go like this. So, remember “y to y”, keeping the shape all the way. That’s the first step you need to know. “y to y” ! It’s not moving your hands independently. Do the “Address”, starting from moving the bottom part of the body To moving the top part of the body as a whole, including the pelvis, arms Along with the club. Today, we learned about the approach in the green And also about the putting the weight on the body properly, along with the placement of the ball. These are the basic things you need to know about approach And hope you practice it several times until you get used to it. Then you will be able to make a sharp “approach” Without making an extra effort. Do you guys know lifting up the ball ? Don’t try to move your wrist like this to lift the ball more, You’ll learn this, later on once you get skilled with the basic ones. If you don’t learn the basic part first, Rolling, or lifting the ball could be harder. So, today’s key point was “y to y” And what did I tell you about the weight? Leaning on one foot, and just turn your knee slightly inward. This is a proper way. Remember once again! Never keep your leg stiff, and push your hip like this. No more of this! Okay? Continuing from the last lesson, we learned about the basic yet, very essential tips Like the details in the wrist and the weights. These will be the important structures of perfect swing, Next time, we will learn about how to have a proper contact, And how to make your incidence angle. Also, we will learn about how to use the club when trying to roll or lift the ball. Please keep connected until our next lesson. And this is all I got for today. Thanks for watching everyone! Hello, Bang pro channel subscribers! I’m pro golfer Dasol Bang. Today is third time of “Approach shot” and it’s also the last time of “Basic Approach” Once I’ve given you the first 3 basic approaches I’m gonna take a short break and tell you about the “Shot” and then we’ll move back to advanced version of approach shot In that version, I’ll tell you how to use high degree techniques of approach shot easily First of all, for the end time of approach shot I prepared a way to match the rhythm and tempo that will improve the RBI First, the movement of the knee and the pelvis are very important At first, we’ve dealt with how to stand on address And in the second time, where to put arms and head And how to hold my weight Then now we really have to hit it, right? If we hit it just recklessly, we say we knuckle it If you hit the ball only hard without any rhythm, You can feel like that But to express the Approach shot abstractly, What should I say? rhythmical, light, and like starcato, You should feel like the ball bouncing up To do that, you’d better use the rhythm from my pelvis I’ll show you first It could be like a dance Take a closer look at my knees, It feels like this Really like playing on the swings, like a swing With my body, stepping on steps, like this. You have to keep the rhythm that comes out of the body So the Club can get away with it lightly Like this, one more time On golf channels, when they tell you about approach shot, They tell many times to you to line up like this and hit and also do this in bunker shot and approach shot many times And when iron doesn’t fit, they talk about rhythm Shaking a golf club little bit more like this Where? In the pelvis! Pelvis should move on both sides like Feeling like going up like this when you backswing and feel like you grab! and snatch at pelvis So in the room, looking at the mirror if possible, fold your hands behind your back, and imagine you wave your arms with your pelvis, which is attached to the shoulder ends on both sides You know what the wind balloon is? Like that, because it has arms on the side of our body, arms wave as body moves As a body, it’s just like that As a pelvis, only when it’s motorized like this arms can swing just lightly So how could we feel this way? You have to practice moving your pelvis rhythmically a lot. It would be nice to understand this way Many says that Approach shot is done with chest Among pros, ‘Hit with chest, float the ball with chest’ Like tossing in volleyball, You can feel the chest float slightly But when you’re in this open stance and your chest is covered, The ball won’t float, and go strongly So I hope you do this way. Look, hitting with my chest, there’s a rhythm in my pelvis going from here and feels like this. Go and ‘Tong!’ Feels like this Did you see that? If you hit like this, even if you hit with your pelvis It’s not going to happen like this Making a rotation using big muscles, you can see the ball Going out with pretty launch angle. I just turned around and hit like this. There’s a lot of balls in the practice field, So if you try it, you’ll get the sense of it. Remember that you should think about the angle between the pelvis and the chest Then you would make pretty golf shots I want you to think about it and practice It was the last time I taught you about the Basic Approach From Set-up, details of arms, position of ball, weight And at the end, I told you about rhythm and how to make pretty launch angle If you follow me, and if you practice hard, also in the advanced version of Approach shot that I will tell you later, You’ll be able to follow well. Make sure you make an opportunity to strengthen from the basics. The lessons I’ve prepared are all for today. We’ll learn some more shots next time. So, this tip that I am sharing today will definitely help you To reach the distance that you want to approach most of the times. Hello, Bang pro channel subscribers! Today, continuing from the basic level of approach shot we worked on last time. we are going to learn about the advanced version Are you curious why I am filming this advanced version of approach shot? We learned how we should hit the ball, where we should place the ball, along with addressing the ball. Now that we learned about the basic stuff, It’s time to actually approach the ball right next to the pin. So, I came back with the practical tips that will help you to approach right next to the pin, and that will be today’s lesson for you. First of all, let me explain how to set the carry distance. How do you usually set the carry distance? I would say you would probably set the carry distance like 10m, or 20m. Am I right? Probably, you would practice by adding on 10m, so going like 10m, 20m. or if you want to practice more accurately, You would practice by setting the distance like 5m, 10m, 15m, adding on 5m But I don’t think most of the people practice like the second case unless they are pro golfers. Even if you practice by setting the distance of 10m, and 20m It’s very hard to practice in details that people will feel like you are focusing more on the approaches than shots. What this means is that if you don’t practice enough The ball won’t be right beside the pin, like you wish it to be. If you practiced the month before, and haven’t practiced ever since You might be successful reaching 10m with only 3 out of 10 balls And there’s no guarantee about the other 7 balls. So, this tip that I am sharing today will definitely help you To reach the distance that you want to approach most of the times. We all have a sense of swing in our body, no matter if you noticed it or not I talked about this often. There’s a swing that feels comfortable for each of us. What I mean by this is that, there’s a certain degree that you can swing even though you are talking at the same time, just like now. There’s no set rule in this. If you swing as you feel, there’s a swing with the smallest power. Even when you are swinging, while thinking about random things The degree of the swing is kept stable. The degree is more consistent than you think. So even though you are not feeling well from whatever happened the day before, You will be able to swing just like the last time. That’s why you don’t need much practice with it. Because it’s the smallest swing that you make ordinarily. Now, If I tell you to try the “medium swing”, Somebody might ask to what degree would be considered as the medium swing? But, without any set standards, just think of what the medium swing would be to yourself. This was the small swing, right? And next, it’s the medium swing. You don’t even have to look to swing, just follow your feels. I think this would be perfect for middle swing. I know I am a pro golfer But at this moment, I’m just swinging this stick, freely, without any rules What’s your impression on this? Am I getting similar swings consistently? I don’t have a mirror or anything in front of me. Anyhow, this was the medium swing. Now, it’s time to try the 3/4 swing, a.k.a Big swing. If you feel like you are all mixed up, my advice would be Not looking at the ground, nor the ball. Just look straight forward. And swing for several times while looking front Don’t think too hard what you have to do next like “After addressing, I should..” Just swing! This is 3/4 swing. Until now, I showed you the small, medium, and big swing. What do you feel like when you try these swings? Pretty much the same, right? Most of the times, you can keep the degrees of these swings consistent. Trust me, you guys can all have this within yourselves already. These swings can be constant because it’s not something you learn, but something already built in your body. Instead of your coach telling you how you should move the arms for the medium swing, Your own feeling of the medium swing is much more accurate. Then, what do we do? If we say that we are having a short game within 100m What kind of clubs can we use in order to play games within 100m? For me, I have 56 degrees wedge, 52 degrees wedge, and pitching club. And how many swings do we have? Swing, medium, big. So we got 3. So how many standard distances do we have per club? 3, you are right! That’s why we get 3 standard distances per club. Lets say you do the small, middle, and big swing with the sand wedge. And if you reached 15m with the small swing, 27m with the medium swing And 50m with the big swing Then we can say that those are your standard distances. 52 degrees wedge has the steeper loft, right? That means that you will get further distances by the swings Compared to the distances when using the sand wedge. Because, the loft is steeper in the 52 wedge club. Since we get 9 standard distances with three clubs in total, Most of your game within 100m will be covered with no problem with these 9 distances. You can also reach different distances, applying this concept. If you want to reach 30m, since your distance with the medium swing is 27m, You can just hold the club a little higher than you would when you do the medium swing. By setting the distance like this, you will be able to reach the distance without whole lot of practices, But if you try to reach 10m using every club, It’s way harder to figure out what kind of swing you have to do to reach 10m. Small swing. I got 15m from here. medium swing. And 26m from the medium swing. 3/4 swing or big swing I got 35m from the 3/4 swing. If you get used to setting the distance like this, You will accomplish reaching your standard distance much easily And will figure out to reach additional distances by applying the standard distances. You will realize that Approach got much easier for you. So, from today, make sure to try your small swing, medium swing, and big swing In the practice court. Most of you have the distance measuring devices, these days. But don’t worry if you don’t have one, I am sure you can find at least one person around you who has it. Take a look at how much distance you get with the measuring devices. Don’t forget what you’ve learned today And If you know and remember your own standard distance, It will be very useful in the future games. Hope you practice several times what you’ve learned today! See you next time! Not like this, or that Just When you open up the arm, and make the shape of octagon In this way, you can finally feel the weight of head. Hello, Bang pro channel subscribers, I’m pro golfer Dasol Bang. Today, we’re going to have a second class of advanced Approach. There are approaches with a nice swing And sometimes there are approaches with slightly awkward swings. Today, we are going to learn the key points to have a nice approach swing in the field. What difference would there be when pros show their address shots? If you look at people who just started golfing, They tend to keep their arms very stiff Hit the ball very stiffly or awkwardly. I don’t teach people to hit the ball like this. If you teach someone to hit the ball stiff like this, It is very hard to master the next step which is cocking, and lagging. Even though I teach people the trendy method, “in-to-in” People that are not used to the approach shot tend to keep their arms straight and hit the ball stiff. Can you guess what will happen in this case? It will give the impression that that person is hitting the ball with the sense of putting stroke But it’s not considered as a right way. So, I would break this down for your better understanding. So how do the pros do this? The main difference in their swings is that their address is done in much comfortable way. There are no unnecessary tensions in their arms. Remember, tension and the power are different. If you think about two concept, ‘having less power’ and ‘having less tension’ It’s correct to maintain the power, but lessen the tension. So it’s very important not to get mixed up with the concept of power and force, or tension. What I’m saying is to have less tension. It doesn’t mean that you should hold the grip loosely with no power. Think it over not to get fixed with these two concepts. Have a solid grip pressure, And keep the power to the extent that you feel the sense of unity between your arms and the rest of the body But make sure to drop the grip with a little tension. There shouldn’t be any air in between, when you hold the grip And keep your armpits closed, and feel the body as a whole. As you see, if you do the address, both arms and shaft make the shape of ‘alphabet y’ Also, when you do the back swing, don’t let your arms and hands be further away from the body by making the inner-orbit. Rather, it’s about spinning the body right. while keeping the hands and the arms close to the body. There are a lot of people say that if they don’t stretch their arm in the outward way, The club keeps moving inward, just like it’s pulled inward. Look, even though the hand spins inward, You just go with “on the plain”. The hand needs to be spotted in front of the club, before “take-away” Of course, when the club passes the waist, it goes back again by the cocking But what I mean is that even though the arm stays inward, the club can stay outward. Don’t forget to check this. Second, it’s when you hit the ball. If you hit it straight, as I told you when I was talking about the follow-through the power or strength goes down. But this also drops the accuracy when doing the approach. Also, it will make lots of shanks, and duff shots,. Now, for the practice, after hitting the ball let’s try putting the grip in the left armpit And then do the follow-through by pushing the body with the tip of the grip inside the left armpit. Then you’ll see your left shoulder opening like this. Don’t try to hold yourself out. We’ll spin, by opening the left shoulder after hitting the ball Think about making pentagon with your arms. But if you see, there are two examples. First, there are people who open their shoulders, keeping the shape of pentagon. And second there are people who lift their arms, changing the shape of pentagon. Which one would be the correct way? The first one. If you look at the second one, it goes back to this when you unfold the arms. Yes, the second case is when shoulders aren’t opened up and kept high. What I mean by keeping the shoulders low is keeping the spine angle Try moving the body as the tip of the grip pushes you. You feel like putting the shoulders kept low Ideally, it would be the best to keep the shape of pentagon, while putting the shoulders kept low. Pentagon that has a shape that looks like someone has pulled it slightly. After the stroke, fold your arms slightly and make the pentagon shape. If I show this to you in different angles, It’s like this. Not like this, or that Just When you open up the arm, and make the shape of octagon You will feel the solid power in grip, but feel less tension in arms. In this way, you can finally feel the weight of head. if you tend to keep arms very stiff “Feel the weight of the head, and hit it with that weight” This kind of instruction is hard to understand. Having some power in the armpit, with strong grip While feeling the sense of one with the body parts And swinging the club not fully outward, but instead holding the club inward And finally moving your left arm after hitting the ball Makes the shape of pentagon. You will feel comfortable with the arm And you’ll be able to feel the weight of head at the same time. Some ask “ I can feel the weight of the head too much if I hold the grip lightly” Yes, you are right, of course you can feel the weight of the head in that way also. But you feel like it’s heavy just because you are not holding the grip tight enough. We are not trying to guess the exact weight of this head By swing it up and down. This is a swing, and depending on my intention It turns out with different ball quality, So you have to pay attention when doing this When you are trying to feel the weight of the head Don’t forget to have your arms relaxed, but keep the grip tightly. This is a very important tip. Not holding the grip tight to feel the grip Might work temporarily. But what would happen in the end? The worst scenario when you do the approach. Holding the club high, and losing the speed. You will look like this. You can’t do the spin, and will have a very weak shot in the green. Does anyone hit by holding the grip lightly and use the weight of the head when hitting? Then, your ball quality can not be good, because the ball always slips away. Hope you make the swing, by having the tight grip That will give you a good shot even with the small swing. Not to lose strength, less tension in your arm Hope you make that kind of swing, with power. Let’s go through the check points once more. Grip! Hold it tight. Close your armpit And instead of stretching your arms straight, drop them with a less tension Keep some power in your armpit and your hand While having much less tension in your arm It’s very important to do this When you are doing the back swing, it’s not stretching your arm straight, It’s putting your arms and hands close to the body,
and keeping the distance between the hand and the body constantly, while spinning. Then, when you look at the club, the plain of the shaft goes to the “on the plane” When you swing using your bottom part of the body,
It’s not moving your arm while holding the left arm out, Just as the shaft in your right shoulder pushes you, move in that direction And spin in that way, by following it. Lastly, it’s not stretching your arm straight It’s making the arms in a shape of octagon Okay, so you might feel overwhelmed after all the checkpoints, I feel like I’ve explained as easy as I can. If you can’t understand fully, please hit the replay button, and go through the video once again. It’s not as hard once you get it, so hope you practice what you’ve learned today. It might not be noticeable, but it actually makes a big change. Hope you have a nice swing, it was bang pro. See you next time!
