  1. hey ,if anyone else trying to find out best golf swing instruction try
    Barkola Amazing Golf Blueprint (just google it ) ? Ive heard some
    extraordinary things about it and my friend got amazing success with it. 

  2. I really need some help on my driver swing. The biggest problem is my
    follow thru and finish. When I practice swing, a have a good follow thru
    and finish and I can hear the swoosh on my driver. However, when there is
    a ball in front of me, I decelerate big time before impact and I stop my
    swing right after impact with the shaft parallel to the ground. No
    complete finish no matter how hard I try. Just wondering if you can help
    me on this.

  3. Great video, have struggled with Driver. Great tip re spine tilt away from
    target, this is also covered in Videojug clip. Good tip re stance width and
    idea of lifting a settee, also ball height on tee.

  4. thank you for the tips. the hand positioning being constant is of great
    help. I was actually able to use my 3 hybrid and drive it 220 yds! thanks!

  5. P.S. Don’t think too much about spine tilt. Just make sure your head is
    slightly behind your hands at address. If your clubface is open after
    trying these things, either your grip is way off or you are pressing your
    hands too far foward.

  6. hey mister redbull try a stiffer shafted driver -i did exactly the same
    when i bought a club with too whippy a shaft- the club head cant catch up
    with your swing and you are lifting before the club hits the ball -worked
    for me -good luck

  7. @imwrittingmyname October 28-31 at Olivos Golf Club and Buenos Aires Golf
    Club in Argentina. sry for posting late, busy… leaving tonight wish me
    well, got new driver, taylormade supertri, new irons, callaway 09 forged
    (Highly recommend for low handicaps), and new wedges– taylormade rac good
    for price and playability. Last, cannot do anything without the scotty
    cameron!! Need them birds and eagles

  8. puzzler, first i would say to get a lesson with someone so that they can
    see and fix ur swing. my advice about your drive is to make sure your club
    face isnt open and that feet knees hips and shoulders are aligned parallel
    to where you are aiming the club face so that u are swinging throught the
    ball and not across it; therefore putting spin on the ball and slicing it

  9. @RingerDaMan : OMG thank you! I fixed my swing. 🙂 I’m hitting it 290yrds
    dead straight. I shot a 69 at Woodside Meadows Golf Course in Michigan.
    First time ever 3 under par for 18 thx times a million

  10. Hey, I’m a scratch golfer, a senior in high school and lately I’ve notice
    my ball start slicing. I was told to stand closer but this doesn’t help. My
    driver hasn’t ever been fit, no place for miles and its too long, about
    48.5″. My arms hanging to floor is 37″. Should I either stick with my swing
    but grip down lower on the grip, stand back further, or something else.
    Please, i need help. I have a huge tournament soon!!!

  11. The tip about checking the correct spine angle at address by holding the
    shaft from the chin is an absolute pearl. Thanks Steve you’re a clas act

  12. I just started playing and the clubs i have are the 2,3,4,5,7,9 irons.
    theyre used and im a tall guy, 6′ 1″. i top the ball alot, ive been bending
    my knees and it helps, but my knees and legs are damaged. Would longer
    clubs work better? any tips for a beginner? thank you

  13. you forgot to mention something very important about set up for a driver.
    if you hover the club with the ball in the middle of the face, and let it
    drop, the ball will always fall towards the toe end. many good drivers tee
    the driver off the toe. this is only if you dont wish to hold the club up
    for very long
