  1. At 7:37 in this video he says "the shoulders are a touch more to the right", what does he mean by this & how would you move your shoulders more to the right? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huty5n2nvKU
  2. I've heard that a square shoulder alignment is best for when using the driver, is this also true for irons?
  3. I usually don't rotate my head that was just a to check where my arms were
  4. What I'm aiming to do in the video is rotate my rear cheek backwards [and the front knee to bend forward straight ,not collapse in] To me it looks like I am doing this until I reach halfway through the backswing and the leg then collapses in

  6. Here's the backswing , just an example I keep my head in the locked position usually
  7. I try to minimize hip turn to avoid my front knee collapsing inwards, so I try to keep the hip rotation to max 30* I'm trying to rotate my torso 90*, but I'm having trouble doing this, because when I do rotate my torso it also causes my hips to rotate more which pushes in my front knee. Here's an example of what Im aiming for you can see his front knee doesn't get pushed in because he has stopped rotating his hips at about 30*, he's only rotating spine from then onwards http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RumM90ulVBg at the 2 minute mark
  8. When I watch the pros most of them have a more upright spine posture when hitting a driver compared to irons How about if you were swinging a 5 iron and a 7 iron, would your back\spine be more upright for the 5 iron?
  9. Is the reason it's hard to open the face because when you grip down on a club it's harder to open the face? How about if you didn't grip down on a club with a long shaft, would it be easy to open up the face then?
  10. I have long shaft one length irons and I was considering carrying a single shorter length wedge , for special shots that a longer shaft iron wouldn't be good for Any idea on what kind of shots a longer shaft would be unwieldy for ? Maybe when the club is on the lip of a bunker?
  11. Or is it caused by anything else? I'm trying to emulate a swing with a very forward shaft lean and I want to know what's may be causing the forward shaft lean Eg pushing your hips a lot towards the target or pushing your hands forward at address?
  12. If you had a wedge with a high bounce would that have any effect on your regular shots too? Or does the bounce in wedges not have any effect on striking regular shots?
  13. heres an example of what i mean, see this persons clubface is pointing down While this person's is pointing towards the golf ball If you want it like the 2nd picture would you actively try to pronate your forearm during the backswing - or is there something else you should do?
  14. I've read that for the long irons you want to sweep the ball, while for shorter irons you want to dig the ball - which is why they move the ball forward for longer irons, in addition to the longer irons having longer shafts But what about if all the shaft lengths are the same, is it still suggested to place the ball in the same spot for each iron, or would that cause problems with trying to sweep/dig into the ground based on the club your using? Or is this dig/sweep thing purely just based on the loft, so it's fine to place the ball in the same position each time?
