    Another excellent lesson on the directional mishits .Golf being a game of misses ,there is a category of mishits I’d like you to give us a refresher course on :it’s about topped shots with the fairway woods ,whether from the short turf or from the first cut of rough .I am prone to this kind of mishits,even if I apply your cure (Given in a previous video) which is not to swing the club to hard .My own “self remedy”,apart from not swinging too hard ,is to aim a spot just in front of the ball ( targetwise )so as to oblige me to take a slightly descending blow at the ball,but this needs in my opinion too much hand/eye coordination !
    Maybe you have a better tip to give me ,apart from not swinging too hard and driving the legs forward in the rotation .

      I do not have a better tip. If you are topping it YOU are swinging too hard. Slow down.

    I really like this idea of learning from what happens. Today while following your advice to practice through the winter (alas, we have already had snow), I was going from point A to point B, and I noticed that my point B had me finishing with the club low on my neck–just above my shoulders. Because you’ve repeated that we should take the data from our swing and ask ourselves what could be causing it, it occurred that if the club were a weight on a string, the only way it ends up lower on my body is if I change the angle of my spine (the axis), in this case by rising up. I made a conscious effort, and with the help of a mirror, kept the tilt throughout the swing, and bingo! the club came to rest bisecting my ears, as you said it should. Thanks again. This all is helping enormously.

      That’s great. I love it when people can fix their own swing. Just keep using this information into the future if you get off track.

    There is nothing better than golfing well on the Marine Corps Birthday (10 November) and this and other tips are the reason. Thanks Paul!
