    I'm going to have to watch part 2. After watching part 1 I put what the Pro was asking you to do into action at the range today. Considering I've hardly played all year, my ball striking was as good as ever. Can you thank him for me?

    I genuinely hope that this Pro transforms your game, but I have to be honest. Watching part 1 reminded of that YouTube video of the guy chasing his dog. "Benton... Benton... BENTOOONNNN... BEEEENNNNNTTTTTOOOOONNNNNN....."

    There may be more but those are the things id check first.
    Tried these today, best ball striking in ages !

    Good to hear. Pretty much impossible to over swing if you keep those things in check. You just can't physically do it.


    There is probably a 4th check point with a funky grip or letting go of the grip slightly at the top to let you over swing but that would be rare. I'd love at those 3 things first.


    Its perfectly possible to play good golf with an over swing. Its just generally harder, less repeatable and just wasted movements.

    Re: Dando and Homer coaching today

    Enjoyed the 2nd part of this lesson. Part 1 was the real meat and bones of it all.


    Obviously plenty for you do be getting on with over the next few months. Understanding what you have to do is the first hurdle.

    The main things you want to get rid of is

    •outside take away
    •cupped wrist
    •flying right elbow
    •over the top down swing.


    This video here is absolute gold for you. There is 3 drills which should be the order you do them to rid yourself of at least three of those faults.

    The towel drill under both arms will stop you taking it outside as you will drop the towel if the arms come away and also the flying right elbow as you will drop it if it comes way up like you do.

    The feet together drill will promote a more rounded swing.

    The step forward drill will promote good weight shift and also the length of the backswing.

    This.

    Save your money and stay away from all of those other pro’s you use on a regular basis. The difference between your live lesson in jan/Feb to this recent one is massive.

    This for me is one of the best YouTube videos out there, simple, clear and sensible from the greatest teacher of them all.
    You can't argue with the wisdom of the man, I know I've had times where I've become fixated on positions in the swing rather than the swing as a whole.
