    Paul ,
    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 √©quator 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 √©quator 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 !

    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.

    Thanks Paul

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