Hi [@]fsufan82[/@], welcome to The Sand Trap. The first thing I would work on in your swing is letting your back leg lose some flex, you don't want to keep it bent like that. Fixing that will probably help you stay more centered among other things. This may, or may not be a priority for your swing but it's what jumps out at me. Others will surely add to this. I'd also look through this thread: http://thesandtrap.com/t/74723/introduction-to-the-purestrike-5-simple-keys-5sk-learning-system/0_100 As well as searching the site for the "5sk Video Thread", use the in-site search function and it should pop up right away. Stick around and you'll learn a ton on here.

    • which fairway wood
      By Mr. Desmond · Posted
      Can't help you, I'm a Callaway guy when it comes to fairways - surprised the XR, GBB, or 816 is not on your list.

    • How necessary are proper golf shoes?
      By WUTiger · Posted
      If it's a par 3 course or one of a couple of flat nine-hole layouts, cross-training shoes with nubs might be OK. Otherwise, I want spikes.  I went out to my home course in November to try out a new 3W, but found the driving range closed. So, wearing cross-training shoes, I decided to play a couple of holes with two other people. Sleet and snow started, and on the second hole I had trouble. I left a tee shot on a par 3 on a deep-grass hillside between the side of the green and a deep greenside bunker. The grass was slippery, and I slid 10 feet into the bunker twice trying to get a stance for a swing. I had to pick up. Two weeks ago, I had an uphill short wedge on another par 3 (at a different course). The shot was 60 degrees uphill, and I had to make an arms only punch so I didn't lose my balance. Without spikes, I would have needed to take an unplayable lie. I want my spikes. Modern soft spikes shouldn't hurt the green any - if you walk smartly and don't drag your fee.
