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
I can not (do not) turn my hands over at impact. The result is always a HUGE banana slice. Any drills that will teach me how and when to turn the hands?
Is the shoulder turn on the backswing the same amount regardless of the length of the club, or do you turn less the shorter the club? Related question: Is the arm swing shorter with shorter clubs?
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).
Should I keep my left arm completely straight when hitting the ball and how far should I stand from the ball at set- up.
My 16 yr old hits a nice little draw, but lately he sometimes starts to push the ball straight right. I think he quits on his follow through, maybe trying to guide the ball instead of crushing it.
I had always had trouble in the past coming over the top and hitting either a fade or slice but I started practicing holding my right elbow to my side and closed my stance a little by dropping my right foot back and now I draw the ball and hit it much further.
When I start the down swing do my hips start first or does my hips and hands start at the same time. As of now I'm either pushing my shots a little right or blocking them out. I'm making solid contact but my shots are about 10 to 15 yards right of the target.
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?
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.
I carry a 5 handicap but when I get in trouble it is usually because I pull my driver straight left. Usually my driver goes strait or fades just a little. What do you think happens when I pull it dead left
I've started hitting my wedges fat. Short shots, full shots -fat! I've tried a check list of diagnostics: tried flattening my swing, steepening by swing,weight foreward, head still, quiet lower body, active lower bory, shoulder turn, less active hands- still fat.
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?
I know it might be hard to answer this question but what causes a pull hook? and is there any drills that might cure 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.
