Well, today is the day!
They’re teeing it up today for the final major of the year at the fabled Oak
Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
Jack Nicklaus claimed the Wanamaker Trophy here in 1980 and Shaun
Micheel shocked the golfing world by coming out of nowhere to snatch his l
one major championship victory at this venue in 2003.
Who could forget the 7-iron Micheel nearly holed on the 72nd hole to seal
the deal and break Chad Campbell’s heart?
So what’s going to happen this week?
Will the winner be a big name like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory
McIlroy, or one of golf’s other superstars?
Or will it be another dark horse like Rich Beem in 2002?
A lot of people are betting on Tiger – and who could blame them after his
dominating victory at the WGC Bridgestone in Akron just a few days ago?
Tiger showed his power by easily reaching 200+ yard par 3’s with a 7-iron!!
That’s crazy! Most mortals are hitting a long iron or even a hybrid into
greens over 200 yards away.
When you think of power, Tiger is near the top of the list. With his strength
and power, he can attack flags from places where other don’t even
consider anything but laying up.
Let’s be honest. You’re not likely to be hitting 200-yard 7-irons like Tiger
But what if I told you there was a simple way to add 30-yards to your driver
and hit 8-irons where you used to hit 6-irons?
What if I told you that you could play pain-free, with more energy and vigor
as you attack the back nine?
And what if you could start seeing results in as little as 15 days with only
about 15 minutes of effort a few times a week?
It all has to do with your core – the collection of muscles and tendons
between your thighs and your chest.
The core is the key to power and distance in golf and even Tiger Woods
Here’s what the best golfer or our generation says about the importance of
a strong core:
“For golfers, core strength is just as important as flexibility. Core muscles
help control movement and transfer energy from the center of the body
out to the limbs, which can obviously impact how well you strike the ball.
My core training builds overall strength and flexibility and helps me
maintain an ideal state of posture and symmetry.” – Tiger Woods
Tiger pioneered modern golf fitness and he’s taken it to a whole new
level. Other professionals have had to improve the strength and overall
fitness just to have a chance.
But you don’t have to work out like Tiger Woods to add strength and power
to your game while improving your overall level of fitness.
A strong core can help you shoot lower scores because it causes a chain
reaction that makes the next shot easier.
Think about it. When you hit your drives farther, your approach shots are
shorter. And when you’re hitting your irons longer too, you might have a 9-
iron into the green where you used to hit a 6 or 7-iron.
A shorter approach shot with a shorter iron ought to leave a shorter putt.
And that means you should hole more putts.
It all adds up to lower scores and more enjoyment of this great game. And
the key to adding power and distance is a strong core.
That’s why I created a NEW program called “Core to Score” which I’m
proud to release this week to celebrate the year’s last major.
I’m not going to make a big sales pitch. Let’s just say if you’re serious about
playing better golf and shooting lower scores by adding more power and
distance to your game, you’ll definitely want to check it out.
You’ll be glad you did.
And before I go, I won’t forget to tell you why I think Tiger will NOT win the
PGA Championship this week. Two reasons.
The first is simple math. Tiger is just one of over 150 players in the field.
Admittedly, he probably has a better chance of winning than any single one
of them, but collectively I’ll take one of the other 149 players to win.
And secondly, on his way to Akron, Tiger stopped at Oak Hill and played a
practice round. Afterwards he was publicly critical of the greens saying they
weren’t in good shape. They were running a bit slow and Tiger typically
doesn’t fare well on slow greens for some reason.
Look, I won’t be shocked it Tiger wins – especially when you consider how
well he played last weekend. I definitely think he’ll win another major – but
for those two reasons, I say Tiger will NOT hoist the Wanamaker Trophy on
Tomorrow, look for a message on “effortless power.” I’ll explain what I
mean, how you can get it, and how it leads to lower scores.

P.S. I can’t teach you how to hit the ball as far as Tiger Woods, but what if
you could add 30 yards to your drives and hit 8-iron approach shots where
you used to hit 6-irons? And what if I could show you how to start adding
this distance and power in as little as 2 weeks? It’s true. Click here now
