      @Jacob Monzingo Been doing a lot of at home stuff during quarantine due to the gyms being closed. One golf based workout I like to do regularly is Does not require any equipment and is relatively easy for somebody just getting started.

      I know in a recent video you said that you don't want to post a video that was just a workout vid. It would be kinda cool to see a video that is a mix of some exercises/stretches and how they affect the golf swing or important parts of the body in the swing. If not, no worries! Love all the content, cheers from the US.

      Pete, you have a very intentional and repeatable pre shot routine when you are on the tee box. It’s one of the things that really impresses me about your golf swing. Could you run through the steps of your practice swings/routine and what is going on in your head before you tee off?

    My takeaway is decent now, I would like a video on ball compression then follow through, I don’t follow through correct and my ball ends up pushing right at the end as I don’t follow through and create that little draw. Thankyou!

  • Alex Sellwood

    At the top of backswing my hands go in an upwards position & the club angle goes across the natural plain line. So on my follow through swing I come down sharp and rely on my wrists to over- compensate to get a straight shot

    I struggle with over Rotating in the back swing. I do well with staying over the ball but sometimes I hit it fat because I tend to cast because there is so much over rotation. I am 46 years old and feel I am pretty athletic which makes me able to get back to the ball.

  • Mike Kroboth

    Love the channel. Been working on my takeaway since getting to the range for the first time this season. Went from too shallow to very steep because I found mistakes were minimized with a steeper takeaway. Love these drills. When I am at university the driving range is quite far so I do a lot of drills in my apartment. If you could do more of these drills that are easy to do without hitting the ball that would be amazing! Thanks for all of the high quality content!

  • dennis7800

    Hey Peter :-) Could you make a video of where the bodyweight should be doing the downswing? My problem is that i'm moving my upper body too much in front of the ball during the downswing. I have been told that my weight should be on my left foot, but my upperbody behind the ball. Do you have a drill or a mindset for that??? Love your videos btw (sorry about the spelling, english is not my native language) Best regards Dennis

    Hey pete, thought this one would be pretty interesting, I play off a 7 handicap, I hit the ball okay but I can never seem to shorten my backswing and increase my turn at the same time. The club always looks over parallel no matter if I get my left shoulder under my chin on the backswing. Thought that would be an interesting question answered :)

  • daniel kennedy
    daniel kennedy

    Hi Pete, love your videos, they’ve really helped me develop my golf game. One area i struggle with (especially conceptually) is the sequencing of the transition, especially the idea of getting the body moving before the arms/club. A video on this would be a great help! Keep up the great work 👍🏽

    Would be a great help if he did an in depth analysis of reading greens, not just for putting but chips, approaches and par 3's. I've spent hours on it and gotten quite good but still miss a read or whatever every now and then.

  • Daniel Mosias

    You have the butt end of the club further forward at address than a lot of other golfers I've seen. What are the advantages and disadvantages (if any) of that? Also I would like to see coaches like your good self making videos of actual lessons with actual people of varying handicaps. One last thing, if you got rid of the beard and had a ponytail you'd be a dead ringer for David Seaman 😃

  • Dink Royles

    Hi Pete! hope you are well, as you were saying about "What other parts of the swing would we like to see you cover next?", not so much a swing video per say, but I'm newish to golf and still have no idea about my yardages, I'm a simple bloke and just want to know rough yardages for my clubs, is there a way we can do this out on the range and on the course without paying for a PGA Pro to get our yardages put down for us? love the content matey, have a great day! stay happy!

    Nice video. I think I am going to increase the swing weight on my clubs to get a better feel of them and put them on the correct swing plane. The short irons are ok, but the mid and long irons feel like feathers. I bought my mizuno mp-33 set used so didn't get fitted.

    Great drill Pete! Keep up the good work! This is a problem area for me as of late. As you described I do become too steep in the follow through. I suspect it is an inherent problem from the takeaway as I take it too wide, outside my desired path. Can this drill be used on all clubs in the bag? Driver is of particular interest for me, again steep follow through, any tips to shallowing the path back to the ball.

  • rollo316

    I've tried this drill from one of yiur previous videos and from meandmygolf. I think my back swing is OK. It's the follow through swing I struggle with. I've noticed I tend to lean more on right instead of my left. Any tips or drills to work on this part of my swing ?? And any swing tips for using my wedges ?

  • Nate BAMA

    Hi Pete, love your channel! I’m in the US and I watch you Rick all the time. My trouble is squaring up at impact, no matter how I set up or try and close my face, even with an inside/out swing, I always seem to block it out to the right or duck hook it to the left, just can’t hit impact with a square face, very frustrating

  • Miles Otway

    Tempo drills and triggers for the golf swing. When tempo is good I hit really quite well, when it's off the thins and duffs take over.

  • mackay19850203

    I'm scooping everything really badly, adding loft to my irons, woods and wedges. I have 112mph swing speed on a good day but I'm losing distance because I'm launching my driver between 22-24 degrees. The trend continues all the way through my bag

    Thing I struggle with the most is continuing the hip turn through the swing. I tend to stall my hips once they are parallel which causes me to have to flip my wrists to make contact. Any tips or drills to help with continuing the rotation throughout the entire swing would help. Thanks for all your videos.

    Hey Peter The club wich I'm struggling the most with is actually my Driver. I hit my Irons and Fairwaywoods pretty solid but I just can't get that Driver fixed and I think it has a lot to do with a wrong takeaway of the club. Would love to see a video about that!

    I would love to see how you can make a cheap makeshift traning course on a football field or something like that. I live in a small apartment and I want to hit balls and do drills, but the closest place to practice anything is a park or a football field. I don't want to hit anyone or anything, so is there a way to setup a training station quick and easy that doesn't endanger other around you, and you can actually strike a ball?

    When you post the down swing video it would really be helpful if you talk about how to have your wrist set when coming down at the trailing leg. I also struggle with having a great practice swing ( fast or slow) but then when I step up to the ball I completely change my swing. Hope you can help. Thank you!

    Thank you for this. Something I need now I’m starting up playing again after 14 months off. I would like to see a video that helps with the driver. I have made some changes. Instead of slicing really badly right. I now hit it straight left. I believe I need to sort my club head path into the ball. So please could we have a swing path video for the driver.

    Always come in way to steep on my driver and slice left to right, then making me a/ slow down my swing speed (less distance) to try and control more & b/ line up way off to comp for my slice.

    On the fairway or tee box(par 3 or short par 4) does it matter taking a chunk of grass? Like as long as you repair or whatever as long as you have good contact with the ball?
