    Hi Paul

    After watching your videos numerous times, to me, its seems that the fat shot and a push shot may be “cousins”. The connection is being titled too right and not getting enough weight off the back foot. Since currently these are my two most stubborn problems which can be especially seen with a fat shot with short irons and push with the driver. Does this make sense or I am off base?

    Best Regards, Patrick

    Hi I was wondering can you tell me why I top the fairway wood I sometimes hit it and the ball hardly moves

    All of a sudden I am hitting many of the longer clubs fat especially 3 wood. I have practiced getting the right heel up, but that juts my hips out too soon and i get pushes. My ball position is fine. The only thing i can figure is that i have been working on turning hips at same pace for all clubs and perhaps the longer clubs actually need a fast paced hip turn or the lag angle will be lost and the club hits the groubd before the ball. Could this be?

    Also is there a way to leave questions through the dashboard?

    thanks, Drew

    • Drew,

      I guarantee you have too much weight on this foot at impact. I always fix fat shots this way so check again. You are hitting it fat because your whole body is lowering and you trapped on this back foot. The arc will not clear. Yes, drive the lower body harder to get off this side.

      If you are hitting pushes you need to have hooked it first before driving the legs harder. Watch:

      You cannot leave comments in the Dashboard yet. You will be able to soon. We will let you know.

  5. Hi Paul. Was seeing some fat shots yesterday and ended up touching the legs. Did i touch them too slow? Thanks.
