You 2 are "Amazing" It feel's great to be recognized as a person with some talent for the game, but to shoot 44,45 plus every time going out to play it's not satisfying!! Hitting 16 of 18 fairways and shooting 50…Yaa something is Soo wrong! I will work on this drill daily, and thankful to be sent a Video concerning my golf game is load's of Respect..Adam & Eric Thank You for your care..Talk soon!

Frank Dimitrakopoulos says:

Fantastic drill Adam

Mark Warmanen says:

Follow you both and both of you have made my game better!

Wen Bray says:

Eric, how much does using your core in the takeaway and downswing help keep a swing to stay on plane back and forth? No one really talks about that and how to use your core properly, maybe you should do a vid on this.

Rickie Winkler says:

These videos seemed to flatten my left wrist and forearm aligning it with the shaft much better. Different dynamic at first parallel left wrist forearm and shaft aligned nicely. From there struggling a bit with blending the up and down with the turn. Thanks

James Greer says:

Two of the best in the biz. Excellent drills. Will be working on them this weekend.

Tim Liles says:

Rick Peters says:

Glad to see to great golf instructors teaming up and sharing your knowledge, thank you.

iupab says:

Iā€™m obsessed with my takeaway because I am convinced its the root cause of any of my swing issues. This exercise just further confirms that the first foot or so is conceptually simple but so many things can go wrong is such a short distance. The drill really helps to connect the dots and further drill into my thick skull to stop over complicating this part of the swing!
