WITH CERTAIN FREQUENCY I WILL PRODUCE WHAT WE USED TO CALL A “THIN SHOT” ;
THIS I FEEL IS A LACK OF TIMING OR “TEMPO” AS MR. VENTURI VOICED IT. SEEING
THIS “TIP” EXPLAINS IT QUITE WELL !!
QUESTION IS ; EVERY NOW AND THEN IT HAPPENS ON A PITCH SHOT…BETWEEN 20 &
50 OR SO YARDS…PERHAPS IT’S TIMING OR OVER/POWERING RIGHT SIDE …..?
THANK YOU SIR,

Thin shots are you trying to hit it too hard. The harder you hit, the more you will look to see what you hit. So anytime you see this thin shot it is telling you to slow down.
Hitting this short shots is understandable because these are delicate shots. If they are delicate you are looking to see if you pulled off the shot or not. So hit it, then look for it.
Here is what you need to work on:

I. Saw Tigers new swing today and it looks so similar to your methods. Flatter shoulders, head moving off ball but not up and down, easy arm swing and follow through with legs in a grat position. What do you think?
It is starting to look good. I have been saying for years he needs to go back to the swing that was beating people by 3 to 13 shots. How hard is that to figure out. I even did a video on it here:
Tiger Woods: http://ignitiongolf.com/fix-tigers-swing/
The whole issue is that when Tiger was the best e copied everything Jack Nicklaus did. He go away from that when he went to Haney. Haney is a flatter draw swing teacher. This is exactly the opposite to what Tiger was doing and exactly the opposite to what Nicklaus did.
I like where he is heading. He still needs to be a little higher up and fade it but I think in the near future we will see some exciting golf again.
Thank you for the great tips. I think this is one of your best.
Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate it.
I was watching Golf Channel the other day and Martin Hall was doing a tip on practicing at the driving range.
He suggested that we practice by hitting 3 balls with our PW and then another 3 balls with a longer club ie: hybrid or 3 wood and we keep doing it repeatedly 3 balls with a short club and another 3 balls with a longer club.
He said this would help eliminate any tension when we hit the longer clubs thus treating it like we are hitting a PW. He said tension is the biggest killer when we go to hit the longer clubs because we want distance and in the process we tighten up thus causing us to hit bad shots.
What do you think?
P/S: Loving your distance mini series.
Stop watching the Golf Channel.
You should be warming up with shorter clubs. Then working on the bulk of your golf balls with a 6 or 7 iron. Towards the end of your session move up to longer clubs.
I did a tip on this here:
What you are trying to do is repeat certain movements over and over until you have them mastered. By constantly changing clubs you are never getting used to anything because you are getting different feels, using different power levels etc.
Follow the tip above. Also, do he practice swings at home. I will keep saying it … it is all about the movement not the ball. So perfect the movement by repeating it as much as you can.
I was wonderingly if you could leave us ( your students) a final parting swing with a ball at the conclusion of each lesson. I’m a visual learner and I think it just reinforces your style of swing (tempo, take away, follow through etc.) and leaves us with a lasting image to guide us.
I typically add swings when I can. Lots of times I forget. I’ll try to remember it in the future.
