it’s probably the pressure? of playing on a course. from what you said it sounds like your lifting your head to early, causing you to top the ball.

don’t fight this too much! a straight left arm is a bit of an antequated theory in golf instruction. a little fold in your joints is never a bad thing. geting fixated on a ‘straight left arm’ will induce? tension among other things!

Mate its a nerves thing the exact same happens to me sometimes in competitions,just try to calm? and slow your heart rate down before you take your shot but don’t take to many practise swings because the nerves will build up again. Regards Aaron 🙂

@ajk712 Well it’s easier to keep your arm straight if you rotate your shoulder with your upper body, then i’ll be much easier! and don’t try to put? too much pressure on it or else you might injure yourself. Have fun!

Hello, Im new to golf. I’ve been playing for around 6-8 months. I have a wilson deep red driver 10.5 degrees and a regular shaft. When i’m at the driving range i hit 48/60 balls really good with my driver? straight or slightly right around 190-230 yards. However when i play at the course i usually “skuff” my driver or top it and it generally goes left. WHat should i do ?

for iron, i put my had ahead of the ball and hit it the same. i see? you also put your hand ahead of the ball when you actually hit the ball. this way i can create a lag easier. is it a bad habit? and this is why i’m so struggling with creating a lag for driver… i can’t find the point that i have to release my wrist when i hit my driver… is there any tip for that?

sunson2004 August 22, 2012 at 2:49 pm

how? do you control your release? any practices you recommend?

@dinkipooxa pot calling the kettle black… pretty sure everyone knows you have? to practice

I like the fact that the hips have rotated rather than slid across. My driver flight is extremely low as? I’m probably getting a little too far forward? There must be drill for this!? I came across these videos the other day, they’re all very helpful. Thanks Mark

I’m having trouble aiming? my irons. I never seem to line up correctly to hit them where I would like them to go. I have a tendency to aim right and I don’t know if it’s my feet placement but any advise would be useful. Thanks

Keeping ur arm straight is easy i need to improve my driver hitting? lol in my backyard i use practice balls and uhhh i hit one and the driver didnt get it very far 🙁

a great way to keep your left arm straight is to take the club back with just your right arm.This will pull the left straight with a nice natural and flexible feel.Your left arm will also attach nicely to your chest with this move and everything falls nicely into? place,a very connected feel without being rigid.Check Lynn Blake TGM.

ajk712 August 22, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Alright thank you. Do you recommend a technique for us inflexible people? Or just? attempt to become more flexibe?

My arm is very straight and yes it is a flexibility thing.? Lots of world class golfers are comfortably straight not bolt straight.

ajk712 August 22, 2012 at 6:25 pm

how do? you keep your left arm so straight? Is it a flexibility thing or is there a trick to itlike twisting the wrists? I try to do this but it is pretty uncomfortable
