    Hey There! Thank you for this useful video. By the way, I hear lots of people keep on talking about Golfonax Training Program (search on google), but I’m not sure if it is good. Have you ever tried this golf program called Golfonax Training Program? I have heard many incredible things about it.

    I love your videos, you have helped me a ton with my swing and moved my handicap from a 20 to an 8 in one year!! Cheers!!

    I had the exact same issue as JD when I started out.. Very practical and sharp way to explain it! To other really new players having this issue, I would suggest that if you keep practicing hitting the ball the right way the distance will eventually come. It hard not to be tense when you start out, but once your wrists start to relax a bit and the turnover becomes more second nature you’re clubhead speed will naturally start to increase and those long irons will start to get some distance.

    Hi Mark I rate you as the best golf pro on youtube.
    I have a nasty push shot i need to fix and cant fix it. Its not a severe push just about 10 yards with 8 iron.
    I have noticed that my head is getting infront of the ball at impact. Have looked at all the other cause of push and cant diagnose it.
    Can head infront of the ball at impact cause a push?
    I have looked through your posts but there are that many I cant what im after.
    I hope you have time to answer.
    Cheers Liverpool UK.

    for the second analysis, with the two golfers, and the basket thing, one thing that i tend to check to make sure my hands are rotating is making sure that you have the correct club path first. Once that is done, i make sure that the toe of the club is facing straight toward the sky in the middle of my backswing. that is when in your backswing the club is at the same level as my hip. Just something i do!

    Hey Mark, awesome video as usual. I have a question about short game. I find myself (on par 4’s) usually within pitching to loft wedge distance (I also have an A wedge) from the flag off the drive and have trouble figuring out which club to use and in what way I should actually swing the club. Sometimes if I bring out my loft I end up short and other times with my pitch the ball goes too far. Do you have any recommendations on how to approach such a situation? Much thanks from Arkansas, U.S.

    Do a video review for the new TaylorMade burner 3.0 irons

  • mrrandalyou 5 years ago

    I think it is worth mentioning that this is a question for distance on irons, which require hitting down a compressing the ball. Which is harder with longer(less lofted) irons to accomplish, which is also likely a factor in poor distance range in the iron set. It is not simply a matter of club head speed, but also a matter of loading, lag hitting down and striking the ball well.

    Did I miss the part of the answer for the question of the week in correcting the slice?

    I have similar issues like the question of the week:

    My Hybrids don’t get the distance I want compared to my 5 and 6 iron(Hybrids are 3 and 4) and I tend to have a slice with my Hybrids and not my irons.

    What am I doing wrong compared to those two club types?
