Clear your hips

'Crossing the line'
My daughter suffers from crossing the line at the top. She is right handed and her shaft at the top many times points to right feild. I have tried many things but have not come up with a simple cure. She says she cannot even feel it when she does it. Any suggestions?

Wrist and legs in backswing

Finding a target
I have tried to get into a routine where I stand behind the ball, locate a target, visualize the ball flight towards the target, setup and swing. The problem is, when I address the ball, I can never get my ball to go straight towards the target.

Shanking every iron

Process vs outcome
How do I stop thinking about my score during a tournament or qualifiers? When I play for score I can not help thinking about what I did on the hole before if it was a birdie or a bogey. I just can not help it.

Function of the arms
I'm a big fan of the one plane swing but I was wondering in your takeaway should it be a set arms and wrists or should it be all shoulders? I hear different answers from many people and I think it would be best to hear from the man himself.

Too far forward in your stance
I know it is hard to tell a person the reason their ball is doing what it is doing without seeing them hit in person but my question is what might be making me pull hook a ball off the tee. Could I possibly be playing the ball to far forward in my stance?

Play it foward
What is the best ball position in the stance to play a hybrid club to get best height? I have heard to play the ball just inside the front foot, and some say to play the ball back in the stance with the club shaft pressed forward.
