    Great vid Peter. My issue is exactly this with the irons. I never take divots and noticed my distance is poor. Would you advise once loaded at the top, to shift all as one to the left and swing harder? Thanks. Peter K

    Can we get a video talking about 50 vs 52 wedges? I'm a new(er) golfer like a year in and my PW is 43° and I only have a 54 SW and a 60 lob. I'm struggling with 110-70 yards, currently hitting my PW super soft.

    I find that I hit my wedges very high and pure but I get no distance out of them. I have a 54 and 58 degree set and that was switching from a 56 and 60 degree set in hopes for my distance but I hit them the same yardage. What should I do differently?

  • phmc123

    You may already have done this, if so please advise when so I can see the video, but all this open face, closed face stuff. Please explain what it is and what effect it has on the ball. Thankyou

    Super helpful. As a new golfer i struggle to know the point of impact on the carpet when im practising at the driving range. My body and positioning al feel like they are doing what you are instructing, but i would like to know if i'm actually getting behind the ball 'visually'. Is there anything you recommend?


    Absolutely terrible. You problem is most likely your hands and this will not fix that. Just another video to make money that doesn’t teach you anything so you’ll watch another one hoping you get better this time.

    • GC RID3RS

      @Peter Finch Golf how does shifting weight solve a problem like unhinging behind the ball. It can help but when I see people with their club head a foot in front of their hands at impact telling them to shift their weight will not fix that.

    Adding this drill to my tool bag... Iron play is the bane of my game right now. So, sticking with irons, I'd like to see more about ball positioning for different clubs in different lies. The only club I don't really worry about ball position is my 7i--right in the middle of my stance. But every other club is hit and miss...pun intended. Cheers, Pete 🍻

    Hello Pete. Im having trouble getting some distance on my wedges. So when I'm striking my wedges to good, getting under them kind of like a flop shot. But its kind off a problem when I'm only getting 60 yards worth of distance on my 56 Degree. What can I do to stop hitting those flop shots when I'm doing a full swing and get more distance on my wedges. Because I'm really struggling with the 70-100 yards, and its tough hitting a half P-wedge when I need to cover 70 yards and getting it on the green.

  • IncrediblePony

    Struggling to actually practice at home with a club in my hand and my 30% flight traning balls for the strike. If you can show/find a cheap and easy way to set up a "driving range" on a football field or the backyard, would be much appreciated :) living in small apartments are not always easy for these sorts of things :P I'm toying with the idea with a fitted sheet a goalpost on a football goal and a stick, but I'm not sure how to best apply it. And then comes the part where I have to not destroy the turf on the football field. A welcome mat made of coconut fibres, perhaps? I dno... :P

    Hi Peter, I really struggle to put my ball in the air. I don’t struggle for distance, I keep the ball fairly straight, so my inability to do so impedes my shots being even better - and no video I see really describes it well. Many thanks.

    Hey Pete! Would love to see a video on how to keep your torso upright and your weight shifting onto your front foot properly. I struggle with subconsciously leaning back and hitting up on the ball, which causes me to leave my club face open, swing over the top, and at worse hit some particularly nasty hosel rockets with my driver that really make me hesitant to use it at all.

  • xarevok

    My problem with these drills is that I still don't know what you are supposed to do with your wrist. I can still hit the ground before the ball if the club is released (not by choice!) too early.

    I like the micro lessons. Keep it simple. Otherwise too much too quickly and too many complications. Currently working on finishing the backswing and giving the swing “time”., especially the longer clubs. I tend to practice with short and mid irons. Longer irons, hybrids and fairways take a longer swing length and therefore more time.
