I am so pleased I watched your video. I’ve been having golf lessons every week for about 6 months. My instructor told me from the beginning that I was swinging out to in or “over the top”. He’s really helped me to improve my game but I couldn’t use the driver as it almost always resulted in a big slice.
He’s had me doing many drills in an attempt to cure the over the top swing but nothing seemed to work and although there was improvement, the left to right ball flight was always present and it was so frustrating.
I just had to let you know that your video drill worked immediately and it was so simple the way you explained it. I knew straight away on the range yesterday that it was working. I went back there again today just to make sure and it was perfect. Even the driver is going straight and there is so much more distance from both the driver and the irons.
It’s great to see the balls releasing forwards when they land instead of bouncing off to the right like they used to do! I’m not usually one for posting comments on the internet but I just had to say thank you! I can’t wait to take it to the course tomorrow.
Until today when I purchased your 6 min. swing fixes I was really struggling with a great big fade with my driver and I hit a long ball. Luckily I live on a farm and my husband built me a driving range so after two hours doing your drills and pulling out the BIG club – I sent the ball straight over and over again!?
So now I have two other things I want to improve…
- My aim
- How to control distance in my short game- for example- not just chips but from 40,30,20 yards- because when I shorten my back swing I always flub- it's full swing or nothing.
Thanks again for your help with the 6 swing fixes- I was starting to lose my mind- and was considering using my irons from the tee box 100% of the time.
Troy, Great article!
So many amateurs take the club back incorrectly and never (from the beginning) get it on a good plane. I think this is one of the most “hidden gems” of the golf swing. Nice article.
The video was awesome! Thanks for the help. I specifically like the explanation about where the hands are released. I wish a driving range was open …. next spring I guess.
I watched your video on the correct hinging motion of the golf club and hit some balls on the range, I was absolutely astounded as to how much more solid and powerful my shots were!! I was definitely hinging on the inside for many years and not realizing until I saw your video!
I am truly truly grateful to you!
