  1. Been trying to add distance by hitting harder. Not working. U are so right. I am accerelating at the start of the downswing… early.

  2. I have been golfing for about 20 years, unable to break Ninety. 3-4 years ago, I could not secure an exceptional round but that was just before I read the golf swing secrets , Jοmtοnο Naha (Go ogle it). I am not efficient when using my irons. My drive doesn’t reach an incredible distance but I can effectively hold my driver with no trouble.

  3. Is it wise to practise the exercise with one specific club, just to get the feel, or is it advisable to practise with, for example, 5 balls with each club? I ask this because I have doing the last and up to 8 all goes nice and smoothly, but the longer clubs are proving more difficult.

  4. I respectfully disagree. You want to cast from the top, immediately after a weight shift to your left side. But if you rotate through the swing, which most people do, you won't cast. I added 15-20 mph to my driver speed. You want to have width on the downswing, throwing the weight (clubhead) away from you to Garner speed at the bottom. Don't believe me? Watch Steve Pratt and driver speed on YouTube. No disrespect Tom.

  5. Good tip Tom. I can see that you are using your right arm to demostrate the speed, but in the real swing do you pull down with the left arm until the "release point" at which time, the right arm/wrist takes over ?
