  1. I prefer the Monte NTC drill by setting the club rather in front of me (towards the forehead). For me, the Faldo drill transfers too much to an inside take away in my real swing.
  2. Just to add that it also need to go around not just down. For me as a feeling that is very important.

  4. I need to hit that ball with the club head.
  5. I was hitting a lot of thin shots to the right lately and realized that I got the back swing and the cast A correct but I was still shallow with my body. My swing had been a bit steep to shallow before (right shoulder down) and now I was getting shallow early AND shallow late instead of shallow early and steep late. I am now trying to be steep late by getting the left shoulder down and around and voila perfect long push draws. If you are hitting the ball thin and to the right make sure that you do not only focus on the shallow shaft but also on the steep body (down hill).
  6. Possibly but it is hard to overdo the flexion of the left wrist. You need to experiment a bit with it.

  8. What Tiger's hands do through (past) the ball: looks like slapping or throwing to me.
  9. Is that not simply because the shaft is at a different angle?
  10. I was just looking at these two pictures of Rory at the Olympics. Is he supinating like crazy to get the clubface from slightly open to dead shut to hit that draw? Or is it again a 2D illusion or a wrong camera angle?
  11. I think it is more a matter of balance than flexibility. It is hard for a lot of people to stand on that left heel and still be in right side bend when swinging a fast moving club.
  12. Perhaps you could hinge upwards a bit more during the take away. The arms now seem to be a bit too much behind you (left arm too much across the chest in back swing). All depends what Dan is saying obviously. He is the one you should listen to.
  13. What helps me to avoid the hook is to feel that I have very straight arms in the follow through.
  14. I would say that an online lesson can be as good as a physical lesson provided that you get a clear instruction what to work on: drills with a feedback mechanism. The feedback mechanism is either a physical barrier or relentlessly using mirrors and videos to see if you get it right. Thinking that you do something correctly and actually doing it correctly are very often not the same thing. Hours and hours of stick drills and still taking the club inside and flat in a real swing. Finally, I now get it but you really have to put the work in. By the way: I also recommend Dan C. Very generous with his time and replies, even years after I first met him!
  15. It is probably individual but I play so much better now that I finally play with "hands in club head out". ... and sorry Dan but this is thanks to you and the stick drill which you prescribed for me
  16. I am not a doctor but as mentioned before, everybody with pain should at least read Dr. Sarno's book before deciding to seek treatment by a chiropractor, physical therapist or surgeon. Very often, there is no direct correlation between a so-called bad back and pain. Quite often, however, there is a direct correlation between emotions and physical pain. For example, the body really likes to create pain when you have fear for something, even the fear of not being able to play golf.
  17. For a lot of people the trouble starts immediately during the take away and back swing. The arms get disconnected from the body already there and it is too hard to reconnect them timely again in the down swing.
  18. As said before set up and you might find this video on the take away helpful.
  19. The info on the website suggests that you get some mini springboard effect.
