This past Monday I caddied for mini tour player Matt Synder in a Monday qualifier for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Matt lives in Vegas, plays on the eGolf Tour and his instructor is a friend of mine, Mario Bevilacqua (also based in Vegas).   Matt had made it through the pre-qualifier and something came up with Matt's regular caddie so Mario called me and wanted to see if I could caddie for the day. I was going to be in Vegas anyway to take pics and videos of...
 Work on improving your mechanics. Check out those links I provided. With good, consistent contact comes distance control. 
 You don't even need the foam ball, just use that feel.

 I think it's better to check the lie angles by drawing a vertical line on the ball rather than hitting off a lie board.  This is actually a great example of how a player's positions don't change from swing to swing. Even though one shot was good and the other wasn't, the picture is almost exactly the same. Might have to steal this for a future thread. A lot of golfers assume that their good shots looks completely different than their bad shots, not the case. I would agree...

You'll have much better control of the path and the face.   Here's how I would practice this. At home grab a club and get into your golf set-up with your tailbone...
