    I think I need to get one of those sleeves the QBs wear on their arms with all the plays except a list of all the drills!! Just kiddin’!! Drills are great.

    I tend to go thru a number of member tips on some days — 2-6 so sometimes there are a number of drills I’m studying.

      Be very careful not to work on too much stuff. Focus on one or two areas of the swing and master them. Then move on to something else. I get the feeling you’re doing too much.

    I use red Pendaflex 12 X 9 inch hanging folders that you would use in a file drawer and clip on some alligator type clips to give them some weight to sit on the grass flat, especially on windy days. They are nice size targets and you can see them clearly, even 80+ yards out. Just another alternative.

    Excellent advice as always, but I have one, very picky concern here: since you walked quite “diagonally” to place your 10, 20, 30 yard targets, wouldn’t you actually be shortening the distances between targets? Since so many golfers have rangefinders these days and don’t play entirely by feel, wouldn’t it be better to walk a straight line and place the balls to alternating sides of the line?

      This is so minimal it will not matter. You can do what you want. The point was to show you to offset the balls.

    Hi Paul,

    I’ve practiced the pitching techniques using three different speeds of my lower body.
    For my shortest back swing, when I turned as fast as I could, I realized I can’t help but
    pull every pitch shot. All of my other pitch shots are working just fine like
    shortest back swing with slow and medium speed of my lower body, medium back swing with slow, medium and fast speed of lower body, and maximum back swing with slow, medium and fast speed of lower body.
