Just a short note to say merry xmas and have a great new year.
I have really enjoyed your daily tips which are outstanding – best I have ever come across in 55 years.
I look forward to continuing improve ment in my swing in the new year.

You don’t recommend using a point on the grass 1 or 2 feet in front of the ball ,or a point in the distance ,tree Limb ,churchsteeple ,tower ,etc…Why?
In the good practice habits ,where should you place YOUR TEE with the driver ,for a long shot :one inch inside the left Instep ,in front of the big left toe ,at the équator of the ball ,or higher than the top of the clubface I ask this question because I TEE ” traditionally ” Inside m’y left Instep ,at the équator of the ball ,while I see the “LONG DRIVERS “teeing in front of the big left toe ,and the ball perched High 4 inches over the turf !
Also ,I see the same “LONG DRIVERS “taking a lot of tilt with their right shoulder much lower than Their left shoulder ,with a very wide stance .
The idea is to launch the ball High on the take off !

I did not mention the intermediate target because that is not what this tip was about. You should know I teach an intermeditate target. I done numerous tips on this.

They are long drivers who are wailing at it as hard as they can. When I taught Mike Dobbyn he did not move the ball any more forward and anyone else. He did tee it high. Keep in mind you start moving to too much forward and you are potentially hitting it as the arc is swinging left.

BEST INSTRUCTION EVER! I don’t think of this as a tip, more as a must. I incorporated into my routine today at the range and did something I have never done, sunk TWO pitches with gap wedge at 95 yards. This and the instruction about setup distance from the ball allows me to just think about the turning of lower body since I now know that all else is OK. Got so excited that had a few bad ones cause arms snuck back into swing, but I now know for sure when I am doing that and just relax back into the powerless arms on next shot. Thanks!

Very good. Alignment is a huge part of the game that is under-taught. As I said before, I think big things are coming for you. Just keep at it.

This answers one of previous questions… this appears to be the most important thing to master first.
