I purchased your swing plane cd set and found it to be very helpful (at least swining clubs in my livingroom - I live in Boston, course opens next week). I can never get comfortable in the following two areas:
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.
With my driver and fairway woods I have an outside to inside swing causing a severe slice. Im fine with my irons only happens with woods. what can I do to correct this???
I feel very comfortable with the 10 finger grip. When watching the big boys they either use the over lap or enter lock grip which I also can use. By using the 10 finger grip, am I at any disadvantages like loosing distance or accuracy?
I sometimes push the driver to the right, but it's not a slice. Is this my grip or swing or both?
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?
I'm a senior golfer and I use graphite shafts - I have for several years. Please explain the punch shot. I was watching the Sony Open and I saw several players with abbreviated swings. Nick Faldo tried to describe it but I didn't understand.
I have been a low handicapper all my life. I practice all the time. For some reason, I recently started shanking every iron I have been hitting. I have tried a lot of things. Nothing is working. First time in my career this has happened. What am I doing?
I need a good drill for developing a better lag with "the move" toward the ball and complementary improvement in clubhead speed.
I have just returned to playing golf after a six year layoff. I am having issues with pushing my irons left or right of the hole when I feel I am correctly aiming at my 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.
My inconsistency costs me at least 6 strokes per round. I would like to have a 3/4 swing but trying to shorten my swing throws off my tempo. How can I shorten my swing?
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.
I have a problem with my backswing. I have a tendency to bring the club back on different swingplanes. Can you give me a key to a consistent swingplane.
