    Nice to see someone talk and explain exactly in words,how people should set up,to allow them to have a better chance to improve. Had to find this the hard way. Did not have tecnoledgy to compare swings in my time. I hope people understand how much time and frustration they can avoid. Love the game .65 and have had so many shots left. Take golf and improve . Thanks you made my day.

    That was great. I tend to be too deep on my irons, particularly short irons. I get away with it because I’m a three handicap but I hate it. Any suggestions. I also tend to hit my short irons extremely high which suggests to me that I am standing the handle up at impact. I tend to struggle with distance From the ball at address. This was really helpful.

    You should be as far as is necessary so that your arms and hands clear your pot belly when swinging your club.

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
