It is very important that you do all your golf thinking and decision making away from the golf ball so when you walk into the shot, all you have to do is react to your target and execute.

What is the best way of ensuring the swing is on plane during the early part of the take away?
How can you break the habit of pulling up when approaching the ball ? I have got in the habit of pulling up and when doing that I top the ball and don't get a solid hit.
On short wedge shots from 75 yards in I am constantly pulling the ball left of target and short. Can you help me understand what I am doing wrong?
Rolling of the wrist or closing the club face release is that something I do? or it just follows a good grip and set up I still hit to many slices and hard fades
I am staying on my right side and topping the ball.. Any drills you would suggest?
Everyone talks about keeping the left arm straight at ball address. Should the left arm be straight during impact of the ball than flex on the follow through?
I try to steer the ball most of the time and fail to follow through with my swing. How can I break this bad habit? Any drills?
Hi. I have a lot of problems with pulling the ball. It happens with the driver and the irons. The ball flight is straight or sometimes a hook. It is worse when hitting off a tee. I must be coming from outside.
Is there a school of thought (and if there is, who are the primary teachers) that advocates the triangle one piece takeaway and on the downswing the shoulder goes left first, while the left hip is held closed until the shoulders pull it through creating an explosive impact and the golfer immed
Should I keep my left arm completely straight when hitting the ball and how far should I stand from the ball at set- up.
Hi Jim, I'm about a 10 handicap, and I'm trying hard to perfect my swing. I hit the ball very well, but often topple forward toward the target (like Gary Players step through drill).
I have spent thousands of dollars on golf lessons, and yet no one has been able to shorten my backswing. Once I get past parrallel I lost all the good angles. Please help.
I have a problem with raising up at impact. Are there any drills to use to help with this problem?
I'm a 14 year old golfer. I play everyday that I can, so I am pretty accustomed to my tendencies. With almost every club (even my three wood), I take a rather large divot.
My question is on transition from the top. Periodically I tend to rotate my back shoulder out and as a result end up with my hands away from my body and a SHANK. Do you have any ideas for a swing thought or a first move to better manage that transition from the top?
I have been concentrating on my downswing to think about slapping the ball with my right hand at impact. But I have been losing distance and hooking the ball. Should I be thinking more about hitting the ball with more of my left hand at impact on my woods and irons.
What is a good tip to help create lag in the downswing? I have been casting the club for so long that it is very hard to stop. A tip that does not require hitting balls at the range would be ideal since I live in Canada.
On the back swing, I do not turn my left arm over my right as I see some do. Dosen't that create more parts to move on the downwing?
For some reason when I swing my 3 wood the swing speed is about 10 mph faster than when I swing my driver. I feel like I am making the same swings, but something is causing the decrease in clubhead speed. Any explaination as to why this might be happening?
For many years I've been affected by a bowed left wrist at the top of my backswing, getting worse during the transition. Can you please explain to me which could have been the origin and what would be the cure for that problem?
