I would be checking your grip, first. Your clubface is wide open at the top of your swing. You come "over the top" because if you didnt your ball would go quite a bit to the right. Clearing your hips would only make that problem worse not better. If your grip was "ok" I would be getting you to feel like the clubface is going back "closed" on the back swing.

***Official US Open 2015 Thread***
LOL Fox interviews Kinsler and asks him 2 stupid questions about Day and not even one about his round. Pros rarely shoot the breeze during rounds let alone during the grind of the US Open.

Of course he will be ridiculed and label "crazy" then the same people will complain about the tax code and how people get screwed by the corporations and rich people.

Usually when you drag it back inside, you also use your hands and wrists more instead of shoulders, so that would be consistent with what I stated earlier. Show a video from Down the Line.

To create a "block" the clubface is square to your swing path, but the path is pointed to far to the right. It can be created in many different ways, which without video its hard to pinpoint the reason. It sounds to me like your face is probably open most of your swing and with longer clubs you cant get the clubface "closed" so you cant get it to draw or hook. I would be checking my wrist positions. I would check to make sure my left wrist is flat at the top of my swing and still flat through the downswing. Most people get a slightly cupped wrist as they drop the club down from the inside ...

I would honestly say not much. I can take a kid who is 11 and never played before and get him caught up too a junior who started at 5 pretty quickly. Their bodies changes so much during that time period. I would say the experience is valuable though. This kid has really only been playing for a year and half, and is one of the best in the state. He can hit his driver about 200 yards on the reg. He also hit flop shots better than I do.

Had one of my juniors (age 8) win his local qualifier for the National Drive, Chip, and Putt by 8 points yesterday, then I caddied for him this afternoon and he won his USKidsgolf tournament by 8 shots, shooting 38 (should have been like 35). He's going to be really good.

Then we can take the too much out to in swing path problem out of the equation. The hook or draw could actually be caused by hitting it on the toe slightly ie "toe hooks". Another big reason for toe shots is what we call "early extension" that is where you lose posture thru the impact zone. Essentially, it means your butt is getting closer to the ball while your spine goes the other way to maintain balance.

There can be many reason for hitting it off the toe including standing too far away from the ball. What sort of ball flight do you have' Fades' Hooks' Pulls' Pushes' Most people who hit it off the toe have a swing path that is too much from outside to inside.

While I totally believe in Aimpoint, its not nearly as easy as it seems. You have to be able to determine slope with your feet by "feel." If you think its 2 degrees and its actually 3 degrees, you will miss read just like you would using your eyes. Same with the Stimp (speed) of the greens. You have to have those things correct, which can be learned, but if they are both not right you will still miss the putt. So it takes a lot of practice, they actually make "slope readers" where you can practice getting the feel of what "2 degrees" feel like.

Yea from that setup position, it requires you to be "handsy" You're having to close the clubface thru impact with excess face rotation (flipping). If you time it right it works, if your timing is off you can miss it both ways. We want your "rate of closure" to be smaller. Using your body turn to close the clubface thru impact. It will feel like you are hitting punch shots for just a little while. Like I said you do a lot of good stuff. Well Done.

I like what you do. Good Stuff! Where do your misses go' Over hooks' Occasional block to the right' I would be changing your setup just a little bit. Higher hands and creating just a little more space between your hands and your body.

I concur. Range work is block practice, course play is random practice. Your job on the course is to get in the hole in as few shots as possible. I want my students on the course to only have an impression of what shape of the shot they are trying to create and where the ball is going to end up and letting their swing create that shot.

I have some of my students put a scorecard on the ground 1 inch behind the ball. The goal of the drill is to hits balls without hitting the scorecard. The only way you will be able to do this is to get your weight or center of gravity slightly ahead of the ball at impact. We want the low point of your swing to be a couple inches ahead of the ball IE hitting down thru the ball instead of "scooping" which leads to 50/50 fat thin shots. You will hit more crisp shots and should get some of your distance back.

I like where your going with this. You need to work on your downswing sequence. It needs to start with a small bump of your hips towards the target (gets your weight on your front foot), then let the club drops as you start to turn your hips and torso on your front leg, instead of your back leg. The low point of your swing is too far toward the back of hitting area. My guess is you hit about the same amount of slightly fat shots as slightly thin shots'

You want to film either "down the line" which is from the backside right down your target line at about hand height or "face-on" at about hand or waist height. Yours was kinda like about half way in between either of those.

I'm sure the media will try to pressure them into it, claiming women's rights trump the rights of a private club. Generally Augusta is HAF, though.

Here is some advice without seeing your swing. You need to learn how to hit "1/2" shots if you are going to continue to hit yourself into that position. What I do with my students is use their PW, GW, SW, LW. I make them learn how far they hit each with three different length backswings (club shaft parallel with ground, arm parallel with ground, and what I call "3/4" swing) We do this often and get essentially 12 (4 clubs X 3 length swings) average different distances. Several will be similar but will come in at different trajectories. It takes practice, but once you have any idea about the ...
