Get Connected for More Power
The arms and body must work together in the golf swing. As you start your swing the left arm should swing across your chest and connect the arm to your chest.  Once the left arm connects to your chest, the arms pull the body so that you are coiled and wound up at the top of your swing.

Pitch Shots
The forty yard shot or closer is tough for many players. There are even players that will lay-up to a distance where they will have a full shot.Make a short enough backswing to have room for a follow through.

Left Arm Only Swings
For right-handed players the left arm must remain extended from the start of the backswing to the beginning of the follow-through.  A good drill to help feel this extension is to make some swings holding the club only in the left hand.

Get Out of the Sand
Approach sand shots in the same manner you would a long pitch shot.  The only difference is that you are digging your feet down into the sand.  Play the ball forward in your stance with your full swing set-up.  Relax and don't forget to finish the swing.

Swing Light And Easy Not Hard And Heavy
Before playing a round or practicing at the range take your grip on the clubhead end of the shaft and swing the grip end from your normal stance. Swing the grip-end as if hitting a shot and listen for the swish as it descends down from the top of your swing.

A Lesson Learned: Commit to the shot
First and foremost, "Congratulations to Webb Simpson!" Simpson has been one of the most consistent and dedicated players in golf over the last year, he is a deserving and worthy champion of the U.S. Open. I expect we'll see more major championship victories in his future.
