Are you getting along with your fairway woods?
Iknow a lot of amateurs lower their expectations on approach shots from 200-plus metres. Granted, your odds of hitting a green from out there are never great, but my advice on fairway woods will help. Start with this drill: Practice making controlled swings that allow you to nish in balance like I am here. That’s the tempo you want. Treat it like you were swinging an iron to a speci c distance. If a shot is too long for a 7-iron, you hit a 6. Same thinking here: Every fairway wood has a distance limit. Don’t try to stretch it. - With Ron Kaspriske
“To hit a cut, set up with your feet and shoulders open.”
GO LEFT TO RIGHT FOR CONSISTENCY
Ilike to fade or cut the ball, which I recommend for you because making a swing that curves a shot left to right seems easier to repeat for most golfers. It also will help you hit the ball higher, which comes in handy on long shots over obstacles like bunkers or water.
To hit a cut, set up with your feet and shoulders open, or aligned left of your target. Then make a swing where your body rotates signi cantly towards the target before the club reaches the ball. I can’t emphasise this enough: Keep turning all the way to the nish. If your body stops and your arms and club keep swinging, you’ll hit it dead left.
