    Hi Paul, would using an impact back help confirm the Y position at the bottom?

      Never use and impact bag. This is hitting. I don’t want you to hit anything.

    So I was shooting in the low 90’s until three weeks ago. Then I couldn’t get off the tee without slicing and drives were going 150 yards. I tried a lot of stuff to get rid of that slice but nothing was working. Till I watched this tip. Now my slice is gone and I’m carrying drives 190 to 220 which is even better that I was doing before. There is a definite snap back in my drive and I’m hitting more in the center than not. My irons have moved up too. My 7 is carrying 140 to 150 now. Before 110 to 120. What the hell happened? 🙂 Oh, and I know this because I have a SkyTrack I’m not just guessing where the ball is landing on the driving range.

    Hi Paul,
    been a member for 3 years & still working to get better! After swinging with my arms for about 34 years it’s been a struggle to turn them off the last 3, but I’ll get there. Watch your tips each day, bought your original Swing Machine set & have taken Skype lessons with Pete so I’m all in. Always try to work on one thing at a time. Thank you for your help.

    I’ve got an off topic question but I couldn’t find a more appropriate place to ask. Now that you’ve had them for a while, do you still like your Sterling Single Length irons? Serendipitously, I was researching them when I saw your review. I’ve got a fitting on Monday & may pull the trigger.

    Thanks for any advice.

      Glad you are still with us. It really amazes me that people can’t stop hitting. That ball and wanting to hit the ball a long way is great. You have to start at the bottom and work your way up. If you don’t do something completely different you will want to go right back to what you have always done.

      As far as Sterling Irons are concerned, I really like them and I’m still using them. I just find the longer irons so easy to hit. Can’t wait for the 4 iron this fall. No guessing or feeling anything different in your set up for any club. It did take a while to get used to them but now I am at least 10 rounds in and they are feeling great.

      It took a while because I have hit so many balls over the years. I grab a pitching wedge and feel I have to get lower yet I don’t which is weird at first. It’s a visual thing too. Longer short clubs and shorter long clubs. You’ll see what I mean.

      I didn’t like the ring they had to them so I glued a small piece of foam in the back and now they don’t ring. I highly doubt foam added any measurable weight to the club.

      I’m so glad I go them.
