@joostluiten Feels good to hit some balls in the sun again.... yfrog.com/h7p15cmj
Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney RT @rapalanlord: @HankDHaney any tips for hitting long irons higher?Buy hybrids, much easier to hit, every amateur should have two at least
@HankDHaney RT @bigbamanuts: @HankDHaney I have been hitting all clubs inside about a ball, what's the fix? Swinging too upright, flatten it out
@HankDHaney RT @marvellousmull: Grip slipping at ball impact ? Club twisting ? New clubs ,new grips. Thoughts? You aren't hitting the center of the club
@HankDHaney RT @hackermangolf: @HankDHaney as an instructor how important is club fitting? And which one would you suggest dialing in first? Fitting 1st
@HankDHaney RT @Sultis: @HankDHaney I keep hitting a little behind the ball. Any advice to hit he ball first? Turn your hips through more
@HankDHaney RT @h_blake: @HankDHaney when making swing changes, better to hit balls, make practice swings, or use mirror? All of the above
@HankDHaney RT @ajf0038: @HankDHaney what is the simplest key to being a consistent putter? Focus totally on your speed.
@HankDHaney RT @Aaron_55: i have a hard time dialing down my sand wedge for shorter distance. Any advice? Get the beginning of your swing on plane
@Paige_Mackenzie Can someone explain how ball companies come up with the names? NXT, Z Star XV, Tour i(X), ProV1X, B330....

@geoffogilvy Fresh irons yesterday, old ones not so groovy anymore. New grips too, Kangaroo leather http://yfrog.com/hsd0bopj
@geoffogilvy The clubs are 710mb's, same as my last set
@geoffogilvy shafts are KBS, one degree upright, not exactly sure of swingweight, but quite heavy D5 or D6 I would think
@geoffogilvy I have had the leather for about 6 months and I think they are great. Not sure why more guys don't use them
@geoffogilvy I keep the old ones as back up for a while, until the new ones have proven they can work
@geoffogilvy Most of my old equipment has been donated to The First Tee in Phoenix
