Ask the Experts

I'm often wondering on the golf course how I can balance the speed of my round with playing a round of golf that's respectful of etiquette, my playing partners and my own enjoyment.
Consistent swingplane
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.

Wrist and legs in backswing
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:

Driving consistently
My core question is, should I learn to play a fade or draw with my driver so I can build some consistency with landing area? In other words, should I work to correct the core inconsistency in my swing or learn to play a more predictable pattern? Is a straight shot bad?

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?

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.

Across the line
I have a tendency to get across the line at the top of my swing which leads me to block shots, especially with my driver. What drills or instruction can you give me to help with this?

Q&A: How do I correct a shank?
My wedges and irons are usually a strong point in my game, but since the start of this season I have a funny tendency from time to time. I will have a slice come off my club and not just a little, a hard low line drive straight to the right!! Got any suggestions?

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?

Pushing the Driver
I sometimes push the driver to the right, but it's not a slice. Is this my grip or swing or both?

Bunker shots
I get out of soft and fluffy sand very well. However untended and unraked, wet, hard packed sand I tend to blade the ball so my open face, bounce exposed, slide the club under the ball obviously is the wrong technique.

'Crossing the line'
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?

Hitting the punch shot in golf
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.

Shanking every iron
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?

Improve clubhead speed
I need a good drill for developing a better lag with "the move" toward the ball and complementary improvement in clubhead speed.

Hooks and Slices/Pushes and Pulls
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.

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.
