Dirt is the word.

Gerardo Hernandez says:

in action.

Melissa Kohrman Porter says:

wish it would load….

Frooshantay says:

omg this makes so much more sense then my golf lessons… and this is free..

PoolBoysTX1 says:

2:00 – 2:05 “As long as the golf club strikes the groung FIRST..” nooooo…
that would be incorrect… this would be considered a “caught it Fat”
situation… Golf ball first, then the dirt…

dnnyshdy says:

Watch a slo mo video of a pro hitting the ball

TheTennesseeFred says:

Thanks. I never knew that the angle of bottom of the club was the same as
the face 🙂 This makes sense in relation to ball striking to me. Thak you,

A7X0313 says:

you should have your own show.. i know i’d watch it

DJMerkEm says:

I didnt know Hugh Hefner was commentating this video.

rapkudos says:

im the swinger haha classic

jscreen89 says:

Very helpful

cnewman8phoenix says:

when my neighbors invited me to come over and meet some swingers, i didn’t
realize they were talking about hitting the links!

sumthindodgy says:

gonna try this, but at 1.53 he just said ”im the swinger in the golf
club” hahaha…quality 🙂

bigwilly1271 says:

haha press 9… why you teachin golf then big guy?

Btwistin says:

This is a mediocre tip. Must be for someone that has only used a putter
hitting through a spinning windmill

Ben K says:

Thanks. I went out in the backyard and did what you said to no avail. Then
I did the opposite; I lifted the ball and that worked great. I’m not trying
to be sarcastic or mean. Because of this video I fixed my swing, even
though I did not follow the video. Thanks…I guess haha

Billy Bob says:

I’m sorry but he’s wrong for long shots. and that stance advice sucks.
stance changes greatly with the longer iorns. If you hit right you may be
to far up and left u to far back. bad teacher.

littletaterdumplin says:

So do you hit a hybrid and an iron with the same stance?

MellowMadnessRMX says:

instead of centering myself around the ball.. i tend to line up the ball
with my left leg…it’s a weird stance.. but works for me. /shrugs

forrealdog2 says:

He means the bottom of the club instead of the leading edge of the club…
he obviously knows that the club strikes the ball first and assumes that
you know that too… look at his divots in front of the ball ..

BulletTheory05 says:

Can someone tell me what he means by ‘keeping your hands quiet’? I’m new to
golf you see, so trying to learn as much as possible. Thanks

Thorovain says:

We call them “pelts”

Fifa Simplistic- Fifa video's and more! says:

Brilliant technique!

improveurgolfswing says:

I really like the simplicity of his teachings so many golfers have problems
hitting their irons properly

charlie helyar says:

After watching the u.s open,i have came to a conclusion.I AM SHIT AT GOLF!

John Thomas says:

Great tip. I find it easier to hit irons than woods. I will try your tips
out this week.

Ronald Rhodes says:

Very nice simple instructions..

rahmelallah says:

Great Tips!!

thefreshestprince89 says:

Really good that he pointed out the fact that we should let the club do the
lifting. I think it’s a common issue for newbies like me!

fungas4201 says:

you ever hit golf balls ever in your life? judging by your comment you’ve
never even looked at a golf course,

D Biddle says:

Every hit was fat?

deepmidwicket says:

Before I watched all of Conan’s clips, I could barely hit a golf ball 20
yards in the air and was thinking about giving up before I’d even started
playing. I watched these and decided to give it another shot on the driving
range. Now, I didn’t hit every ball, I obviously skewed a few wide left or
right, but when I connected I was hitting the ball 150 yds+ with my 3 iron
and 200 yards+ with my driver. AND they were going dead straight too.
Fantastic clips!

thebuzzcutboy says:

@BulletTheory05 I take lessons with him. It means not moving your wrists
hope that helps 🙂

Paul Tetu says:

The only thing I was curious about that I didn’t learn in this video was
where exactly I want the ball to contact the iron.

Mollineaux says:

@SwollPirate3 It may seem OK lifting the ball, until you see a ball struck
correctly by a pro. It will fizz away, climbing with back spin, then
falling almost vertically. This is not like the simple loop you get by
lifting. Try to come into the back of the ball and hit the ground just
AFTER the ball, taking a small divot. You’ll see and feel the difference

MileHighDrumming Davis says:

@KevinStars1 hahh 😀

king dropzz says:

Thanks the vid helped

Mitch Arney says:

You lessons are very helpful. Thanks!

jdmars011 says:

Im a swinger…i swing therefore Iam. I swing-a-wing-ding. SCWHING!

oneoneone5 says:

Damn, who would have thought you’d need a ball and an iron club to learn
how to hit a good iron shot?

Winterstick549 says:

The man was giving sold advice to beginning golfers. Since some of you seem
to think you are the next Tiger Woods, why are you watching a video for
