  1. Hi Scott, If your divot is left and your ball is going right then the club face is open to your path at impact. It sounds like it is more of a club face problem. I would firstly check your club face and swing plane in the backswing. Do you know how to check them both?

  2. Thanks for the response. I do not know how to check either. I've been thinking of filming myself at the range but have yet to do so. I know that sometimes I fail to finish on my front side, probably from my years of playing baseball. If you could give me some insight on how to check my club face and swing plane I'd greatly appreciate it.

  3. i too have that problem of never ending up on my front foot. i'm sure its the cause of most my problems. now and then i get it right and it feels so very right when you've swung the club.

  4. A outside to inside swing path leads to the divot pointing left and a left to right ball flight. There's a myriad of reasons a golfer might have this. One thing that a lot of people do is that they stand too far from the ball. That causes you to slouch which makes your swing steeper. Stand a little closer and it'll make you stand more upright which will shallow out your swing. You may start topping balls a lot after making this adjustment. You just have to try to swing through the ball.

  6. Hopefully that helps but it may expose other things in your swing. Once you get that inside to outside swing path, you may start pushing your ball straight to the right. That's a different thing all on it's own. It's always a developing process. The golf swing has so many variables.

  7. good information as a beginner golfer i tend to move around and setup wrong and end up topping or dribbling the ball.now i have a starting point in which i can work on my swing

  8. I noticed that Patrick Ray played a 3 wood with a narrow stance and hit the ball a mile. The 3 wood usually calls for a wider stance. What's your thoughts on why he setup with a narrow stance. Thanks

  9. I tend to have a (V) shaped swing which means I come down on the ball sharply .
    Based on this I keep my ball position in the same place makes it easier.
    The pro tried to change my swing to a (U) shaped swing and move the ball as per club length found it confusing 

  10. Thanks guys I love all your videos .I have lately been having a tough time with lower irons .I'm very accurate from  8 iron through Pitch .but startin with 7 and lower each club gets a little worse .I can hit my 7 sometimes 6 a little less and so on .Its very frustrating any Idea what I might be doing?again thanks for all the videos and keep them coming I'm a big fan.
