  1. If you only "occasionally" get a 200 yard drive, your swing speed is under 77. 82MPH club head speed with good contact should give you 225 230 air carry plus roll out. low lofted clubs will really penalize you at slow speeds. The do not give you enough air time to get much different distance. Do you know what your speed is with a driver 3 wood 5 wood 3 iron? Spin rates? Don't let the flex of a shaft bother you. X, R, M, A, Sr, W, L are just letters. Pay no attention to them. Get the shaft that works for you. Here are your choices. 1. accept what you have now
  2. A dead straight push is cause 99 percent of the time by chasing the ball down the line instead of letting the club swing around your body. If the ball is curving, your leaving the face open. Most likely rolling it open on the back swing.
  3. pick the club that will land the ball 2 to 3 feet on the green and roll to the hole. Could be a wedge, could be a 5 iron depending on distance to the hole. Only you can tell after you practice using this method so you know which club goes how far. If its 50 feet to the hole and up hill and you know your gap wedge will land 3 feet on the green and roll out 46 or 47 feet. If its up hill, use one extra club. I chip with every iron in the bag. I want to land 3 feet on the green and roll to the hole. Much easier to roll a ball back there than fly one close and make it stop. Use the same lin
  4. There is no book useful to learn a swing or to play golf. A book can not tell you what your doing wrong. A book will tell you to turn your hips, it cant tell you if your doing it right or the timing is good. Unless your a natural, it can only be done by a professional watching you and correcting faults. Remember, to change a swing and make it automatic takes 18 months to 2 years to get the muscle memory to make it repeatable every time.
  5. Forget books, in fact forget everything. By this, I mean you should make sure your brain is not thinking anything when you swing. Empty your mind (swing thoughts ruin swings). When your ready to swing, empty your mind and exhale your breath. When you exhale, you will feel your body set firmer, it just does drop slightly. Hit the ball. Your brain is a funny thing. It will tend to do the last thing you thought about before you swing. Seen too many guys say to them selves, dont slice the ball. guess what happens, yep, a slice. Empty your mind, exhale, and take a s
  6. Stop swinging your irons like a driver. I will bet your swinging your irons way to hard. You can hit a ball as hard as you can and make perfect contact and it will go. You can slow down your swing a little, make perfect contact, and there will not be more than 3 yards difference, so slow down and use a softer ball also that are also lower spin balls. The less a ball spins, the farther it will go. We all dont have to hit ProVs. Go to the range, take some practice swings and see EXACTLY where your club contacts the ground. I mean each club. Where ever your club hits the grass first, i
  7. stop moving your head. keep your lower body still and dont rock backwards or forward during the swing. Moving your head is the largest contributor the second being your raising up during your swing. Rasing up is caused by generally being too close to the ball. All three are easy to stop if you discover which you are doing.
  8. Its very simple. If you driver swing speed is around 77 or less, change shafts to a Ladies flex. (assuming your using a senior flex now) You shafts are not working for you. In other words, your swing speed is not loading the shaft on the down swing and allowing it to transmit its power into the rear of the ball. Go to a golf store, swing some ladies shafted clubs. You will find our yardages spreading out. With normally lofted clubs, you should find around 6 to 8 yards difference between clubs. The driver will have a larger spread because it has a longer shaft.
  9. The driving range is not a waste of time. However, there is a lot of time wasted on the driving range. If you want to play this game well, 75 percent of the balls you hit should be with wedges in your hand. pitching, gap, sand, and lob. You must know exactly how far each will go using 4 different back swing lengths. Using your hands as the back swing distance indicator, the 4 are, pocket high, belt high, halfway between belt and shoulder, and shoulder. Bear in mind, these are easy gentle swings. Once you learn this and can do them each time, you can dial in wedge shots and pitch shots tha
  10. Ok, the thread is old. However, some of the post obviously do not understand how the LPG swing works. I have used the LPG swing, then the LPG with Alternate back swing and finally, the e2e (E Square) swing. I am no super athlete, just a 64 year old man. I started working with one of Jack's instructors in the Dallas area, I am now certified to teach all of Jack's swings. I have gone form 30 handicap down to a variable between -2 and +1. Jack's methods work. You must do the proper drills and use training aids to perfect the swing. With E Square, you will find you dont
