Perhaps it's inclement weather or lightning. Or one hole where foursomes find themselves backed up on the tee. Or it could even be just a busy day and the pace of play slows dramatically. So what can you learn about staying sharp and focused when facing long delays on the course?

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?
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
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 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?
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.
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).
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?
I have a problem with raising up at impact. Are there any drills to use to help with this problem?
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.
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?
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.
My question involves the motion most typical used to start the downswing for good players. I have read/heard that some players start the downswing with the right knee moving toward the ball, others start with a shift of weight to the left foot, Others start with a hip rotation.
