Edel Putters

I recently put my Edel putter back into my bag and it has changed my life!

I believe Edel’s theory on using a putter that you aim well. After much research and using a laser to measure aim on students, I have found that most mis-aim from inside six feet. Being fit with the proper hosel offset, loft, weight, length and more is so important.

I’ve been in conversation with David Edel himself a dozen times in the last couple of months. I have learned so much more about his research that I am excited to share with you.

In the meantime, please read the attached article from Golf Magazine. 

 

5 Questions with Michael Butler

Jeff Coston interviews Michael Butler.

Q 1) You play at Western Washington University. Nice. Is your game progressing? How? Why? What is happening?

Michael: Yes I do play at WWU. I feel like my game is progressing nicely because I am thinking more effectively on the golf course. I feel like with the help of Jeff I have been less attached to results and I am getting better at seeing my target and reacting to that target. This helps keep negative thoughts out of my head and frees me up! I also feel like I am practicing better with simple drills to make my practice more like the way I play.

Q 2) You just won Homestead Open! How did you feel coming down the stretch? How did you cope and finish the job?

Michael: I felt great coming down the stretch! It was a lot of fun and I just enjoyed seeing my target and letting It go. I focused more on trusting my swing and my game instead of thinking about results. I also realized that If I did what I am supposed to do and commit to my shots that the result would take care of itself.

5 Questions with Kaitlyn Anderson

Q1) You cross the border and make effort to see Jeff Coston on your golf. Why?

Kaitlyn: I really like the way that Jeff explains things to me! He makes things clear by showing me, and then I do it! We watch my swing on videos so I can really see what I am doing and what I need to change so it helps me to improve faster!  He is also so supportive and really believes in me!

Coston Blog, August 2017 – “Bunker Lesson”

I just gave another “Bunker Lesson” today. I could almost feel the tension rise as my client stepped into what they called “the TRAP”. I mentioned the first golfer who coined the word TRAP for BUNKER wasn’t very good at that aspect of the game.

Bunker play definitely has some technique; no question. Good bunker play, as in any aspect of the game is proper mindset also.  Bunker practice is usually an afterthought. Seldom practiced; usually as a 911 emergency rather than 411 information.

Coston Shoots 62 to Win Senior Oregon Open!


Jeff Coston made 10 birdies and no bogeys the final round to post 68-70-62 to win his fifth Senior Oregon Open.

“I hit the ball well all week. The last round I just let the putter go like Steph Curry shooting foul shots! Less try, less time, less think. Just let it go freely. A game worth playing. Golf can be so much easier when we learn to overcome interference and let it go!”

Coston will play the Northwest Open, August 21-23 at Wine Valley.

Coston Blog, July 2017

This month marks a celebration of 23 years Jeff Coston Golf Academy at Semiahmoo Golf Club! Being here with the members, staff and this super facility has been my honor and privilege! Thank you Semiahmoo for allowing me to spend much of my life here and hopefully much more.
Everyone wants to hit the golf ball further, no doubt! Hitting the golf ball straighter helps also. These last 23 years most everyone communicates, “I want to be more consistent; hit it farther; hit it straighter.”

We have, and will continue to, write about the proper plane, path and club face. We often over these 23 years have focused on shallowing the shaft on the downswing (most golfers have to steep an approach).

We have and will continue to communicate most golfers would be benefit with a slightly stronger grip in the fingers. Golfers also aim thier feet to the right of target and shoulders left; where feet left and shoulders right would be a better habit.
