Just started getting back into golf again after taking a little bit of time off and was never really any good. Was shooting 9 hole rounds in the 60’s at the start of the? year and been watching these videos and slowly working improvements into my swing and I’ve got my score down to 49 last round out. Much room for improvement for me but these videos have helped me loads. Thanks a lot.

Hi Mark, thanks for taking your? time and doing these videos. Great lesson on “committing” to the follow through. Tried it at the range with great results. Took the new swing to my local club and was longer and much more accurate!! Thanks again.

@jayleno013 i was asking for a in the bag video too but if you watch majority of his videos? he throws in clues of what he plays, for example this video he said something about “his mp 53” and the nike driver video he said he bagged that driver and in the mizuno wedges compared to the vokey wedges he said he chose the mizuno over the vokey thats another clue.

Hi Mark, do you have any practice routines for amateur golfers say 15mins ones before tee off? Most people turn up 15? mins before they tee off in local club competitions and was wondering what’s the best way to prepare when you don’t have a lot of time, should it be warm up, small chips shots or putting. Thanks for your vids they are really informative.

Great video! The keeping the elbows close really helped me hit the ball better. However, I think I got a little obsessed with that and started taking the club on too inside of a path. ? I will watch your videos on the takeaway swing path and keep the elbow tip in mind. Thanks again!

Hi Mark, I know there are lots of videos on shaft flex etc, but especially for irons i was wondering if there are any obvious pointers to having the wrong type. I saw a video of my swing and saw that the shaft was bending just before impact. I have a regular flex and im not sure its right as it feels a bit too “whippy”. Anyway, just wondering if there were any misses or shot results that occur with the wrong flex that allow you to realise without getting your swing speed checked? etc. cheers

hi mark, great videos i struggle with keeping my hands in front of my body on the downsing, this causes me to hit shots right all the time and occasionally shanks. I was? wondering if you had any drills that could help me. Thanks

mark on the improved impact can? doing the wrong thing make you hit the ball high because i think i am doing this and it makes me hit an extremely high ball flight

Mark i love the vids but you MASSIVELY contradict yourself. You correctly recommend that all clubs should be fit to the person, but when it comes to Drivers or 3 woods you call the benefits of the clubs that are able to be adjusted…..eg R11 not only can you close open face you can upright the club and flatten address………………….love to hear you? answer to this. BTW I am not a hater i love the vids, subscribe and watch everyone….

The follow through is something i learned myself recently, makes me hit much straighter? with the hybrids and driver? before I followed through, i was slicing and the ball would also fade.

Hi Mark,
Another great weekly fix video, since finding your channel on? youtube and watching these fixes I have managed to shave 3 strokes off my handicap (12 to 9) and hitting the ball more solid and straighter than I have ever done, to extent I think I may now be able to shape shots!! The next thing is planning custom clubs next week, so one question….What advice on clubs for a Mid to aspiring Low handicapper?? Keep up the good work on your videos
