    upright swing and shot shape

    upright swing, shot shape tendencies Question: Does an upright swing force a player into a natural left to right shot? Is it dangerous to try to hit draws from here? I ask because I have made a few changes. I was trying to get a lower left arm at the top but I started thinking my lack of...

    Shaft length and lie angles

    Is there a simple correlation between adding or subtracting length to a club and it's "effective" lie angle? I've heard that adding 1/2 inch makes a club play 1* more upright than "standard". Is this pretty much accurate?

    Pro style wedge shots

    I've heard it a thousand times and also noticed it watching the pros play in person. They hit these low wedge shots that one hop and stop, not very many high FULL wedges. How do they do it? Is it simply that they are making three-quarter swings with the wedges/short irons vs. closer to "all out"...

    Golfsmith Launch Moniter Accuracy

    I was at a local Golfsmith hitting drivers the other day and was surprised by some numbers given by the computer. This location uses a unit that takes high speed pictures of the ball to determine launch angle, spin, ball speed, clubhead speed etc. Does anyone have an idea of how accurate these...

    Good line from Feherty's show on the Golf Channel by ol' Lee Buck. "The funny thing about's like having a leaky shingle on your roof.....they wanna tear the house down....instead of finding the leak and repairing it". Method teachers anyone?

    Manzella Neutral Grip

    Is the "Manzella Neutral Grip" weaker than what most pop instructors push these days? I'm working on it and when I truly get the face to line up with the forearm with a flat left wrist, my grip is much weaker than what I've been using. In high school years ago I used to grip it much weaker but...

    1) Does address hand height effect pop-out? 2) Does address hand height have an effect on getting across the line or laid off at the top of the backswing? I suppose you could substitute the angle between the left forearm and clubshaft for hand height. Closer to straight line=higher hands...

    Just found a trackman!!!

    Guys, just found a range reasonably close that has a Trackman. Emailed them and the pro said they charge $50 per hour to use. Is this a reasonable price in your experience? I mean, I'll probably end up trying it either way, but is this pretty much the going rate? For those of you in Central...
