PGA Show: Ask Michael Breed a Question

Posted: January 27, 2011

Team Titleist is headed to Orlando, Fla., this week for the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show, and we are especially excited about the opportunity to spend some time with Titleist Advisory Staff Member Michael Breed – the Head PGA Professional at Sunningdale Country Club in Scarsdale, N.Y., host of Golf Channel's popular golf instructional show, "The Golf Fix," and one of golf's leading instructors.

Michael, a longtime Titleist Advisory Staff member who has been instrumental in Titleist's Golf Ball Education, Selection and Fitting initiative, traveled to China recently to share his ideas and teaching philosophy with 60 of the country's top golf instructors and coaches at the first-ever Titleist Golf Coaches Forum in China.

On Friday, he will take some time out from his busy schedule at the PGA Merchandise Show to answer questions submitted exclusively from members of Team Titleist.

Michael will be selecting his favorite questions to answer, so reply to this post with your best question and check back later this weekend to see if yours was picked. Thanks!

They say you should have one swing for all clubs, why do I feel that my 3 wood needs a method of its own? Thanks

I am a once a week 15-handicap player.  What single piece of equipment would you recommend to improve my game (in addition to continuing lessons)?

At the top of the back swing for a right hander should the right elbow be on the swing plane or  along the shoulder plane?

Michael,

Love your show. I incorporate your tips into my game all the time.

When are you going to invite Lanny Bassham on to your show to discuss the mental side of the game?

What is the best way to find the right driver/shaft combination? Us normal people don't have time/resources to try everything...

Question:

Michael,

I have a 5.5 handicap and play the ProV1x for the last several years because I feel it is a bit longer for me (less spin) that the Pro V1. With the development of the new balls available next month, do you believe that the new balls will still have that distance separation.

Why do i see increased ball speed/ swing speed when going to a shorter length driver?

Nation


I have struggled with "balance" for the 50+ years I've played golf. Could you recommend drills for both heel/toe as well as "hanging back"/"getting a head" balance.

Mr. Breed,

What is your suggestion for taking my teaching business to the next level?  I teach 250+ lessons annually and would like to become more recognizable outside of my club.  I appreciate your help.
