    Super high tee. Must be working on shallowing things out.

    It's similar to practicing hitting shots with the ball well above your feet, he's trying to shallow everything out.

    Downswing must have become to steep. As others said the drill is to create shallowness. If you are steep you would destroy the bottle. A good application for the average golfer is to hit 6 irons from a super high tee. You will learn how to get shallow or you will have a solid collection of strikes at the top the club

    I had some video of Foley working with him last year at the Memorial on a Tuesday. They were working very hard on just past impact, keeping the clubhead on the target line and his hands inside the arc more.

    Are you sure it was Ryo that Foley was working with or was it Noh? Don't remember ever seeing Sean with Ishikawa

    OK I admit, the pants are what I liked most about this post, look like Callaway pants actually.



    The rest is too confusing for my brain without knowing what is supposed to be going on.

    I could have had them mistaken sitting in the bleachers. I thought it was Ryo with the hair cut now but could have been wrong.

    Doubt he's trying to shallow, most pros are trying to steepen. The club is really short so doesn't help much with shallow, teeing it up makes the club proper length to hit it with small driver
