Hank Haney, PGA
@HankDHaney   RT @rapalanlord: @HankDHaney any tips for hitting long irons higher?Buy hybrids, much easier to hit, every amateur should have two at least

@HankDHaney  RT @bigbamanuts: @HankDHaney I have been hitting all clubs inside about a ball, what's the fix? Swinging too upright, flatten it out

@HankDHaney RT @marvellousmull: Grip slipping at ball impact ? Club twisting ? New clubs ,new grips. Thoughts? You aren't hitting the center of the club

@HankDHaney   RT @hackermangolf: @HankDHaney as an instructor how important is club fitting? And which one would you suggest dialing in first? Fitting 1st

@HankDHaney   RT @Sultis: @HankDHaney I keep hitting a little behind the ball. Any advice to hit he ball first? Turn your hips through more

@HankDHaney   RT @h_blake: @HankDHaney when making swing changes, better to hit balls, make practice swings, or use mirror? All of the above

@HankDHaney   RT @ajf0038: @HankDHaney what is the simplest key to being a consistent putter? Focus totally on your speed.

@HankDHaney   RT @Aaron_55: i have a hard time dialing down my sand wedge for shorter distance. Any advice? Get the beginning of your swing on plane
