    Did you record the whole lesson for your channel. That would be class.

    The faults in your swing were really obvious. I told you a good pro would begin to sort you in minutes. Really glad you had this lesson. The over the top swing was killing you and was never going to be consistent.

    If you hammer this over the winter you will have a great chance to move forward next year towards your goal.

    Most of it, but hard as we had a heavy rain shower and I've not seen all the footage. Found it hard (impossible) to shorten as far as he wanted and get the wrist position and then make a good turn (to be honest probably too much info crammed into one 90 minute) segment but I've some stuff to look at and things to work on. I'll look at what I have on camera and put something on the channel at some point in the next few days

    Look forward to seeing the footage and also the subsequent changes you make.

    Even off the mats it gets you hitting a ball and you can groove the swing. Distance does not really matter. It's all about being confident in technique

    Sounds like some good things to work on and look forward to seeing more about it

    Are you going to stick with him as your coach now through the winter?

    Hope he gets you where you want to be, good luck 👍👍

    I was Paul's main pro-am partner when he used to play the assistant pro series at Foxhills....nearly 40 years ago!

    How time flies...
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...

    Its not feasible to use him as a permanent coach as it's too far to travel. There's a couple of guys at Windlesham Golf Club I was looking at (one who has glowing testimonies and one that does a lot of NLP stuff which is something I wanted to look at for a while). Still got some lessons paid for with the guy I'm using so I'll get these done and decide

    Does that mean i could get to putt out a bit quicker on the 17th at Swinley? For a short par 3 you sure did a lot of walking!
