“Pelz Draw”, “Pelz Gap”, “Pelz 6”, “Pelz Sand Wedge”

(Reprinted from PelzGolf.com)

As Alumni of the Pelz Scoring Game Schools know, a fundamental of scoring is precision with your wedges and short irons from knowing your distances with different length backswings. I have worked with Phil for 15+ years – and he has taken to referring to the 9:00 backswing that we teach all of our students as his “Pelz” swing.

With his precise distance calibration of all of his wedges plus 9 through 6 irons, he was talking and making “Pelz” swings a lot during the tournament.

Example of my 9:00 backswing which flies 60 yards with my L wedge, 10 yards from the sand.

A “Pelz” swing is simply a ¾ swing where your leading arm becomes parallel to the ground and results in a shot which flies approximately ¾ of your normal full swing distance. You can fade or draw it depending on the green and wind conditions.

Example of a “Pelz Draw” – a 9:00 backswing that you “turn over” and Draw to the target.

Let’s ALL get inspired by Phil – to develop the best Short Game of your Life, and hope he uses it well at the upcoming US Open at Torrey Pines to win his career Grand Slam!

Good luck, Phil!

Good Scoring to You,

"The Pelz Player Putting Mat is right up there with the competition. Solid build construction, multiple hole distances, and easy storage are some key benefits. The 10.5 foot length puts the Pelz mat gives you that extra distance for an “at home” mat to really nail down every putt within 10 feet. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking to start sharp this offseason or to add to their home or office golf setup."

Gareth Raflewski’s short game training is highly respected and the same programs can be followed by you at home. The Raflewski Tour putting mat is a realistic fit for any home and rolls pure. I can’t stress enough how difficult that is to come across, and especially at an affordable price point. So if you’re looking for a legitimately good quality, useful mat that won’t break the bank, I’m pretty impressed by the Raflewski Tour mat. - Bill Bush, Driving Range Heroes
