    Biggest club with the biggest swing I can make doing it right at this time. 
Assuming 12 for you is correct be VERY selective off of the lie you use it on.  I had one for a few months and liked hitting it off the deck on some long straight Par 5's at my old course which were about 570yds each.  I needed it to be sitting up on the first cut like it was on a tee or I had to make sure it was not above or below my feet on the fairway so I could increase my margin for error.     3 woods to me should be designed to do what you want them to do.  Some...
Solid round trying to hit a pull fade on every full shot.
 I just asked the question to my instructor about if I should work on the 1/2 and 1/4 swings with a driver since he thinks it's the most important club.  Since adopting this way of practicing I have only focused on hitting irons, short ones at that.  I have Arccos and the club most often used (less the putter) according to the software is without a doubt my driver.  It is the longest, lightest club with the least amount of loft.  It is the club that is the hardest to...
 The club head.  Think of "holding the release off" as long as you can.  It keeps the club head from moving right for me, left for you after impact unless you can get your hands REALLY inside.  Trying to get the hands in with leaving the head out has that cut off feel for the follow through.   Right now I'm really confused on how to move the club/hands/arms throughout the swing.  My instructor called at lunch and we went over it again and he's going to send me a video or...
For those of us (most everyone here) we have multiple issues and minimal time.  My hands are so active in the swing that while trying to work on the body movements (ankle roll) I've also been trying to work on the arms swinging correctly.  Trying to focus on two things at this point is probably not optimal.  I'm going to have to break it up in my practice so I get more out of my time.   Edge of my ability here and still feel like the club head is staying out too long....
Good read.  Practice yesterday and today = not many balls hit.  I did lots of slow motion pump drills working on the ankles rolling.  I had to come down into impact with the club head in slow motion to still find that feel of the heel on the ground and the knee not kicking out. Your swing is much more of a complete product than mine.  For someone of my ability would you recommend this type of practice exclusively during this time of year when I'm also playing or do I need...
Do you have a preference for what clubs to use when practicing specific movements?  Sure I can make small movements and work on a specific movement and hit a sand wedge ok, but would it be better do do this with longer clubs that are harder to hit?
Can you see them now?     When rolling the ankles should it be subtle?  I can pretty much roll completely over on both ankle and over the weekend while working on this I had a lot of shanks followed by vicious pull hooks, etc.  Slowing down to focus on the movement only made it worse.     The practice swings are me completely rolling the ankles over.  The full swing is me TRYING to completely roll them over.  I obviously cannot do it at full speed or even what I...
 Trying to quiet the body in the swing has always been hard for me.  It's made me wonder if I'm physically strong enough to control my body.  I know most think we are, but I would venture to say that we're not strong in the right places to help control some of these movements.     I'm so concerned about the hand action and path because I know how bad in to out I get and I start playing really bad golf when my timing is off.  Even with a handsy swing I was still getting a...
