  1. Mark, could you do a video solely on dropping the shaft plane flatter than the hand plane on the downswing. Drills, "feel", etc.

  2. Stenson used to have a huge forward press which was one of the reasons he couldn't use his driver as the dynamic loft he presented at impact on a 9.5 loft was dropping to 6.5 and less. (this was a few years back) He's cut down on the amount of forward movement in his forward press, took him quite a while to do this & to be able to get in a position when he was comfortable starting to take the club back from address (something he still has problems with very occasionally), certainly all working now this season, ha! 🙂
    Agree with Mark, don't like the forward press much as it tends to lead to causing more problems with snatching & jerking the club back, also to re-gripping into a bad hand position, the path on takeaway being to steep and too early setting of the hands and/or whipping the club back to much behind the right leg. A very slight gentle forward press can work if it enables a smooth takeaway, but there would be more golfers who are trying to improve who would be much better without one than with one.

  4. I use a similar upright posture, which with a 1plane and wide stance gives me very accurate drives, as long as i fully clean my hips.

  5. Pretty much all the best pro's do a slight forward press, Ernie, Tiger, Vijay, Mcilroy doesn't forward press but sets his hands way forward at set up. As long as you aren't changng ur grip I think it's a good thing to do, because it puts your hands in the position they should be at impact.

  6. I really like these videos, mainly because you get people like the kid in this video who has a real nice swing. Also the people who do need big changes. But you can compare your swing to what's going wrong or right with other. And change the things to make them better. Really good stuff from you mark!

  7. Mark:
    Thanks for showing a video with a clear diagram of the shaft plane going below the hand plane (at around the 10:30).  I think this is my issue as well.  I have been trying visualize this ever since I first saw one of your videos from a few months back explaining the hand-to-shaft-plane relationship.

  8. hi mark
    great tips for the hand plane and dropping the club, really improved my game so far. just wondering though if this technique or 'style' of shot is the same for all clubs, in particular wedges?
    hope you see this and reply.

  9. Mark thank you for analyzing my swing (min 10) and saying it was good. in that swing (common error for me sometimes with wedges) i just decelerated in the down swing causing a push fade. thank you so much and ill be sending more videos. i just send one of a 6i that it will be better to watch.
