I've always wondered why there are no videos in this thread for key 5?  Can anyone point me to some?

Key 5 is pretty simple: controlling your clubface. Most of the drills for this involve… starting the ball over certain targets. Within your cone.

All these 5SK Videos are shots with irons/wedges, how can I practice them using my Drivers, 3 Woods, and Hybrids?

They’re often the same. Do you have one specifically?

Over the past few weeks, I was working on these three videos below because I was struggling to hit them with consistent distances and also because I keep hitting the shots at various directions. With these vids I've learned, I was able to hit my irons at the distances I want them to be at most of the time through shifting my weight more (Still need to work on consistent contact, but you get the point). For the driver, woods, and hybrids I know that I have to strike the ball at a more shallow angle, but for all irons and wedges it's best to hit with a steeper angle. I use the same backswing for all my clubs, although I'm more convinced that I need make them shallower.

Before I begin, ball position is largely relevant and responsible for wedges being a bit steeper than 4-irons or hybrids.

Still relevant to all clubs. A bit less important with the driver.

I went looking for this to give a link for a new member and was surprised this wasn't in this thread:

I was looking for the 65/20/15 thread and, while it was easy to find, I was a little surprised it wasn't in this thread yet, given how much instructional content is, at least in part, aimed at correcting misconceptions.

On a related note, several videos in the first post have seemingly been made private since the thread was created.

The videos… are because YouTube moved Unlisted videos to Private some time ago. The problem is… they also stripped all information. I don't know what the title of the videos is, where they are, etc.

I have access to three YouTube accounts, and none of them are still private in them. I've changed the age restriction thing to "not made for kids" (it's not adult content, it's just not targeted for kids).

@mvmac, are some of the videos on your channel(s)?

    • Ok.  So I have this problem:    If I place the ball in the middle of my stance (when hitting my irons, like you're supposed to), I just can't seem to make good contact.  I'm chunking it; it seems like I'm hitting way behind the ball, and my clubhead is not yet at the bottom of the swing trajectory (ie where it's supposed to be when contact is made).     I'm not sure why this is.  I think it may be because I'm not bending enough at the waist, leaning forward.  I may be standing up too straight.  If I place the ball forward in my stance (by as much as 3-4 ball lengths, especially with my long iron), I get nearly perfect contact . . . but with a hook/pull tendency.  
    • No. The path isn't linear - the farther forward, the more left (for a right-handed player) the club tends to be moving. There are a lot of factors that go into whether a player is more likely to draw/pull/fade it from a ball position that's "too far" forward, but… almost nobody plays a ball position that's "too far" forward. 😄 
    • If you place the ball too far up in your stance (when hitting irons), are you more likely to hook it or slice it?  I think the answer is hook it, right?   Assuming a straight and consistent club path in your swing, after your club head nadirs out at the bottom of your swing and you enter into your follow through, you start to close the face.  So if you place your ball too far ahead in your stance, you will tend to hit is with a more closed faced, resulting in a hook.   Does that sound right? 
    • Thank you for making my point. Good luck to him in defying the odds.
    • Interesting day at the range today. Seemed to have zero swing (or many depending on how you look at it) and was hitting every poor shot imaginable. Finally decided to just mimic my short swings I do with my practice club for the majority of my 5 minute daily practices. That did the trick. It felt as if my backswing ended just past hip high. I felt so connected and was getting great compression on shots. Distance may have suffered a bit but if shots end up as playable as these would have been I'll take the trade off.
