Mike Koen says:

Todd, I’ve been recuperating from spine surgery for the last three months. During that time my golf was limited to watching your videos. Yesterday I went out to play for the first time. I just hit wedges, irons and hybrids. I was so pleased with how I was hitting the ball. Better than ever actually and it was due to watching your instructional videos, thanks for you help, Mike from Tucson, Az

Bryan Kem says:

Excellent tip on proper grip and where the club should be in your hands.

Carmen & Cathy Marco says:

Wondered if you could tell me how long after your knee replacement could you take full swings.

Some of your outdoor tips have a microphone issue… gets scratchy when you move around. Love all your tips… have used a couple to make a real difference. Thanks! 😉⛳

Scott Spraul says:

Love the vertical line swing! I’m working to get more proficient at it, and yes…..I do consider you my golf coach…LOL! Waiting for my Maxvert driver to arrive as well. BTW…..59 years old-live north of Dayton Ohio.
I’ve watched all your videos on “the swing”. I am getting better, but I’ve seen videos saying different positions for you gloved hand at takeaway. Some say have the label facing down, I think I saw another having it facing out. I assume the label on your glove should face down during the VLS?


Those are definitely some ingrained myths that need to be overcome by many.
All the best from Wadsworth, Ohio. 🎄🏌️⛳

Red Ghost says:

Best advice my pro gave me was to try to throw my pecker down towards the flag. For me, this makes everything come together without overthinking it.

Michael Adams says:

Great vid! I have a youngster who tops, I always tell him when he does, just watch the ball until you hit it. I'll watch where it goes. 😉 Funny, he laughs — but it usually works for a while.

Andy Barton says:

Okay ….lost count of…. 😵‍💫

Dale Villers says:

how do you hit a ball out of tall grass off the fairway (couple of inches) Iam left handed and the ball goes to the left.

Don Bordeau says:

Great video as always do and your company run class at different areas from Massachusetts

michael o'hara says:

I bought the Bad Lie and decided to start VLS. Does ball position at address change?

Denny DeSantis says:

I’m learning the VLS. It is helping already. I’m an experienced golfer from Ponte Vedra,FL. I have a contact problem. I hit many balls off the toe. All clubs! Is there a drill for making good contact?

Chuck Ross says:

Your restricting your hips on your last shot.. What you say is not real in your feel or what your doing .

Michael Sorrentino says:

Enjoy all the helpful advice. While I have been hitting fairly straight or with a slight fade all of a sudden I’m pulling everything left . This coincided with cooler weather. Any thoughts. Thanks. I’m in NY

Bob Burch says:

Great video. Really enjoy it. Thank you

Great lesson mate, thankyou from Aussie 🏌️‍♂️👍

Ha Tien Tran says:

I've been following you for quite a long time and my game is getting better. I, and I think many other golfers, need your professional advice about how to deal with clubs that are too long.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Lou says:

Thanks for great video Todd. Finally have been allowing my hip to turn and the leg right leg to straighten and hitting the ball better than I was at 35… Now 75 and have been shooting below my age the last year.

D Gat says:

I really like all of Todd’s videos

james eadie says:

To many instructors cannot teach individuals, they only know what they know.

Pat Connell says:

Ok I just found your site by accident. I’m a senior who has lost his confidence with the irons. Hopefully you guys can help me
