Hey Michael - love your simple tips mate. I noticed when you took your one legged shot you seemed to move the ball forward in your stance - was that the camera angle or is that recommended?

Hi Angus,
You can play it towards the front if you would like. Find out what works best for you!

Thank you Mark!

Great tip(s) on eliminating the "snap hook". I like it in your videos when you keep it simple to one or two things to work on.
Thanks,
Mark

Excellent drill. I remember some 30 years ago, the local PGA teacher actually showed me something very similar. I plan on trying this drill to raise my short game to a new level

Thank you James!

A very good practice for those tricky chip shots, has helped considerably.

Thank you Arthur!

You didnt discuss why you want to have all your weight on front foot and then bringing it back to 2 feet.

What club would you generally use during this drill?

Hi Robert, any wedge will do.

Hi
Thanks for the tip. I noticed that you don’t seem to be choking down on the wedge. My question is when would it be appropriate to choke down on the shaft

Thanks
John!

I typically don’t choke down on the club when chipping or pitching, only when I am
In between clubs on approach shots.
