    Hi Paul,
    Great tip on width of stance and touching the legs. My question is about the touching the legs drill from yesterday, should you be on your tilt when practicing or is upright ok while doing the drill?
    Thanks, Mike

    By the way Paul,
    You said the course is closed, however is the Pro shop open? My daughter and her husband are leaving for Las Vegas in the morning and I want them to get me a red golf shirt.
    Thanks again, Mike

      Mike, The pro shop should be open. If they haven’t left yet have them call to make sure.

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for the info, I told them to call first. One mor question of course,
    This one is about your grip and power tip. Is it possible that if you have very long fingers that when putting your right hand on the club in that second joint area, that as you wrap the palm to settle over the left thumb that it misses due to the length of you fingers? And if so what is the cure?
    Thanks, Mike

      Mike, you can do this if you have long fingers. The cure is wider grips and/or making sure your left thumb fits perfectly in the fleshy part (lifeline) of the right hand. If done properly regardless of hand size this thumb should fit perfectly in the groove. If so the V or line on the right hand will point between the right ear and shoulder. Focus on the line or V of the right hand. This is critical to the proper placement of this hand.

It's funny ... many years ago I took lessons at some of the best schools in the world.  This was when I was wintering in Orlando.  Once I got back to Canada, I had no way of having my teachers watch my swing to make sure I was doing the swing positions exactly right.  

Not knowing if I was doing things right or not would drive me crazy because not doing it exactly right was a waste of my time (I hate wasting time).

I don't want you wasting your time.  This is why I started offering Skype Lessons to former students, members and Swing Machine Golf followers.  Now there's a way (through Skype) we can see your actual golf swing.

For $39.95 or less, you can finally stop guessing and doubting yourself.  We'll explain what you are doing and what you need to be working on to develop a great golf swing.

If you're serious about developing a great swing please start taking Skype Golf Lessons with us today.
