Sweet!

Mark, thank you so much. This is the simplest, best drill I have found for
not dropping the club under the shaft plane. I have really never heard any
one speak about NOT turning the hips. I can really feel the resistence in
the lower body and ,y weight shifts much easier on the way back. Now I need
to work on starting the knees and hips down first to get some power back.

TadRapidly says:

Hi Mark, The other day I started shanking ’em. To solve it I thought about
applying EQUAL force with both hands / both arms at impact. It worked. Is
that a fluke or does that seem like a sound fix?

fabianforti says:

mark would you consider this the One Piece Takeaway? Also can you
demonstrate the saying of keeping the club outside your hands in the
backswing? THANKS

club please write back

Mathew Harvey says:

Hi Mark, I have been looking for a new driver for a while now but i have no
idea what to get. I am 15 years old, i have been playing for about 6 months
and have a handicap of 30. What driver would you reccommend, i have been
looking at the Ping G20 but i dont know. Thanks.

sulakleo says:

was that a 60 or 70 degree turn at 2:13

Michael Turner says:

Would this not increase the chance of injury? How would you argue that
Bubba Watson is the longest driver on the pga tour and he has an enormous
hip turn?

Phil says:

I think the term backswing is misleading as it encourages the over use of
the arms to SWING it should be called Backturn as you are turning your body
and your arms are following the rotation of your body.

Definitely more porky these days is Mr Crossfield.

This helped me a ton. I have a horrible problem slicing it a lot. My buddy
I golf with said I have a baseball swing but whatever I tried, I couldn’t
fix it. It was all my hips. Lol

gwatson4612 says:

Mark I was wondering in your back swing once you coil if the hands are
passive at the top and through to impact? Great video

9 hole golf course, just downloaded GOLF your great iPhone app, will keep
you posted how I get on and may send a vid or two, keep up the good work.

John Aitken says:

Mark, I am 65 and not as flexible as many of my younger counterparts. It is
difficult to achieve many of the positions or actions shown in your
lessons. Would it be possible for you to provide some tips for those of us
that are advancing in years thus enabling me to conitnue playing to a
reasonable level. Kind regards John

Sean Murphy says:

Mark you have improved my game tremendously, thank you from MIchigan!!!

Ray Wampler says:

Love the video. Such a smooth swing and you put your advice in ways we can
understand. On my back swing my right leg always went straight and I
couldn’t figure out why. Recently I just figured out that I was turning my
hips to far. I became more quieter in the hips and it seems to help. Is
this true or am I still misssing something.

Ez TheElf says:

what is this music; its cool

Sean Murphy says:

Hey Mark, just want to thank you for fixing explaining all your techniques.
I’m now swinging better then I ever have and having tons of fun getting
better every week. I can’t thank you enough for your videos, your are the
Best Teacher on You Tube 🙂

Ez TheElf says:

OKAY, BUT THEN PLEASE EXPLAIN GREGG NORMAN WHO SAYS TO GET RIGHT BUTT CHEEK
TO TURN TO TARGET. AND HE WAS ONE OF THE BEST DRIVERS OF ALL TIME. YOU
MIGHT FEEL LIKE YOU ARE GETTING MORE COIL, BUT IF IT DOES NOT FEEL NATURAL,
DON’T DO IT. THE GOLF SWING SHOULD NOT FEEL RESTRICTED/OR TOO LOSE
EITHER…JUST NATURAL, WITHIN ONE’S NATURAL FLEXIBILITY BACK AND THROUGH.
IF SOMETHING FEELS UNNATURAL OR “FORCED” OR OPPOSED TO WHAT YOUR BODY FEELS
LIKE IT SHOULD DO MORE NATURALLY, THEN DON’T DO IT.

MrMakodog says:

Hi mark love the vids. Any chance of a tip on how to look at the ball at
address. I was looking down the shaft at the ball and found it gave me a
very high ball flight. I have now been looking more behind the club head
and found alot more greens in regulation.nobody seems to talk about this
simple setup. Cheers mate.

Brett Celland says:

Hi Mark, this lesson combined with a swing review you did on shoulder swing
have assisted me enormously.While Im non handicap atm my consistency and
accuracy with both irons and driver have taken a quantum leap by following
your advice.I am now gaining alot more confidence and am developing a far
better feel for the ball.Thanks for your blog as the reviews are great,the
lessons are clear,easily understood and easily put into practice.And above
all they are effective. Keep up the gr8 work!

RunThemAll says:

Best lessons on youtube, for sure!

Niv Fishbein says:

Mark, Great videos in general. Can you discuss what happens from the time
you are done starting your downswing to the point of impact? Thanks

Mark Crossfield says:

Thank you for your comment onkai takeaway lesson comming this week.

MaJo DiuLi says:

amar chawla says:

Hi Mark, I have uploaded 3 videos. Can you please help me !

stephen blackie says:

hi mark, ive watched a number of your videos with great interest and i was
hoping you could help me with a issue i have. I have recently purchased the
mx200 mizuno irons and although im striking them very well and consistantly
they are shorter than my previous irons and does not include a sand wedge,
which has left my wegdes depleted. If i was going to renew a complete set
of wedges what lofts, bounces, etc would you suggest for my bag. I feel i
want lots of wedges for different scenarios
