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.

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.

Ten finger grip
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?

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?

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?

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?

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.

Clear your hips
I'm now approaching seventy years of age. I find it harder and harder to clear my hips. To help this I try to square up my shoulders when I set up, but I set up with a slightly open stance.
