Paul Azinger
@PaulAzinger Writing down swing thoughts? STOP! A TOUR PROs SECRET is HIS/HER VISUAL KEYS with MAYBE a few swg/thoughts. Whats your VISUAL KEY?

@PaulAzinger Visual tip:Try seeing hands under ball on bk/swg & dwn/swg thru impact. If it works it will b easy to repeat everyday.If not, more tips soon

@PaulAzinger Some don't understand hands under ball. At address u see hands under ball? Ok. Hands make a streak away from ball and streak thru impact!

@PaulAzinger Streak hands under ball thru impact

@PaulAzinger Last tweet. Most pros keys are visual, with some swing thoughts. Most of you have swing thoughts, no visual.Visuals work when u find rt one

@carlingcoffing Had my first lesson w (PGA Professional Mike) bender yesterday. Lots of drills to do today! I'm shifting my hips too far to the right and need more wrist hinge

@carlingcoffing He said to stand a clublength away from the wall and if u hit the wall on ur backswing then u need + hinge. I hit that thing like 25 times!
