My swing has gone under the knife with my golf Instructor big time this year and finally startinig to see the benefits on the course. The "hope I don't duff this one with my mates looking" feeling is being replaced with "I hope them boys are looking when I nail this f**ker"
Out on the course last evening and I was hitting some decent drives but all were starting straight, going a bit too high and fading right 10 or 20 yrds. I play the ball for my driver in a straight line with the inside of my left foot as per my golf instructor but noticed that when I have my hands level with the inside of my left thigh ( ie, an inch or two behind the ball ) that the fade is replaced with a straighter more penetrating flight. I always setup with my hands in front of the ball with my irons and hybrids ( I guess hands are level with inside of my left thigh ) but is it the case with this "Hands level with inside of left thigh" rule at setup that they will be behind the ball for the driver? ( next lesson is not for 3 more weeks so may not see the Pro in the mean time )
