Forum: Instruction

This is the place to ask questions on the mechanics of the swing etc.

  1. Proper Grip

    Palm based grip or finger based grip? I know most teachers advocate a finger based grip but I know Hank Haney advocates more of a palm based grip...please chime in with your opinions.

  2. what a difference a fitting session can make!

    After nearly 10 months of my swing being in the absolute dumps, I have started to hit the ball better starting a month ago. But, although I was swinging well, and was getting consistent again, my drives were still abnormally short. My swing speed is in the 92-96 MPH range and I use a 7i for 160...

  4. Going from best to worst - Help Needed

    Hi Guys, Please help me out here because I'm in desperate need of saving. 4 weeks ago this upcoming Saturday, I played my best round of golf ever. 10 of 14 fairways hit, 29 putts for an unimaginable (for me) round of 75 at the Gatineau. I still call this a fluke round and I couldn't believe how...

Straight but not in the direction I was aiming. eg 150 yards to the green, I find my line, maybe a divot a bit closer for easier aiming, and the ball would go straight but 25 yards to the left of target.
