Daily Video Tips
Where do position the ball in your stance when hitting a hybrid club?
If I could make one suggestion when you hit the ball the camera in front of you vs. behind. If in front it provides good input, ball position, length of backswing, the angel of tack, and the strike. Really this would help all of us, we do not care where the ball goes C. Man
Thanks for the input!
Thanks for the good tip. How much bounce is on the 60 degree wedge that you used in this lesson?
Happy New Year!
Hi John, sorry for the delay. Most 60's have 10, or less degrees bounce. Mine has 8 stamped on it, but I've never verified. It seems to do what I need. Best, MC
Why hybrid versus a regular iron. What is the general rule for moving to a hybrid versus an iron?
Hi Charles, hybrids are more forgiving for folks who don't hit the ball on the sweet spot with certainty. They don't need to be as precise as an iron strike. That said, they aren't as accurate for good strikers, and thus why you don't see too many hybrids in Pro bags. More w LPGA
I tend to de-loft my hybrid for better results. Is this due to a poor swing or just the wrong hybrid
Lorris, I'd try some stronger lofted hybrids and see if that helps. Artificially delofting them may hurt your swing with your other clubs. Cheers, MC
Does the length of the backstroke change with the distance of the put?
The hula hoop was there as a reference. It wasn’t meant to be exact. My path may have been a little more, or less “left” than the hoop indicated.
Thanks for this tip. It will be helpful. Was your path even more to the left than what the hula hoop shows?
The hula hoop was there to paint a picture, for the viewers, not meant to be literal.
Hi Martin. Helpful advice. You didn't mention why you don't just open the club face and stance and swing at the flag instead of to the the left. Is it because of the spin or because you won't get the full club face on the ball (or both)?
It wasn’t an option to hit a decent shot. If I would have swung on my target line, it would be super easy to chunk it on that extreme downhill lie and little chance to hit it high enough.
Love this type of shot.. ball below my feet. Can you cover ball above the feet in future video training tips!!
For sure. Good idea!
