Fantastic advice, Paul. I’m going to try it in the morning.
Paul: I went to the range this morning. My goal had already been to focus on the follow-through (touch the head) position. That’s the first thing to go when I get on a course, since I practice hitting off mats and seeing grass below/around the ball tends to change my orientation, in just the wrong way. Taking your advice to ask questions after each swing, I was much quicker than usual to make adjustments. If I truly swing from point A to point B I get more clubhead speed and power with less apparent effort. If I hit a pull, I’m usually too slow with the lower body and so I turn sooner and faster and end up with either a dead-straight flight or a slight Nicklaus-style fade. Neither one is a bad thing, in my opinion.
I find it amusing that some people think that there’s too much information on your site. My advice to members is to take digestible morsels. Each one will contribute to ultimate improvement in your game. There will be more when you’re ready for them.

That is great. I like how you are working on it.
Yes, too many people work on too many things. There are many reasons for this. Hopefully, everyone can pick out a few things and master them then move on. It’s all about building a great swing not about trying to experiment. Confusion is the whole reason I left RG.
Keep up the good work.
Keep doing this forever.
My approach to practice at the range is to try to make it like playing a hole. I start my session with 5 -10 shots with a 7 iron. Then I start with a driver having walked around, lined up, taken my practice swings, then hit. Next shot walk round select 3 wood, hybrid or long iron line up etc. Next shot maybe an approach with a wedge. It’s like playing an imaginary par5, walk between shots, select club, line up, get the grip, practice swings, set up, play the shot. It is a bit time consuming but it is comparable to playing a round. Only 40 or 50 shots, then 10 from the bunker, then a chipping set. Putting is a whole separate session usually before the round.
This is one way to practice when you are trying to work on different shots etc. The main way you should be practicing if you are trying to develop a great swing is setting up an alignment station and using a 6 or 7 iron to work on your swing positions. You pick out one or two positions and work on them until they are perfect. You do this be doing drills and practice swings and watching yourself in a mirror. So make sure you are doing this when working on your swing. Work on it the other way when you are happy with your swing and are trying to get used to hitting different clubs and shots.

Based on everything you have taught me and helped through the past, my 7iron is now 170 when its hit solid (used to be 150). The feeling of a solid shot is unmistakable, like you cant feel youve even hit it. My question is, what do you ask yourself when you hit a decent shot (straight), but you know it wasnt quite as solid as should be and it only goes 150, like a slight mis hit? Im assuming its my arms not being 100% powerless. thanks

I would be jumping up and down patting myself on the back. Why? You hit a bad shot online! This is huge!!! Sure, the contact wasn’t great but the contact will vary on a day to day basis. Some times you will come out of it a little (thin). Other times you will not get off the back foot perfectly (fat). After a shot like this just take note of whether it was fat or thin and either slow down and loosen up a little (thin) or get the weight off the back foot (more leg drive) if you hit it fat.
Again, love the fact that the ball from a square alignment is on target. The consistency will come when you turn the arms off completely.
