Lesson of the Week: Dan Small – Setup and Takeaway

By Site | Videos: Lesson of the Week

Dan was visiting Florida from New York and being a website fanatic (his very nice girlfriend said that) he braved a very rainy and windy day (although warm) to try to figure out why he was “a 6 -handicap short game and a 24 – handicap long game”. It was evident after the first batch of swings that the priorities would be setup and takeaway oriented. Dan was somewhat slumped with his hands low and the ball back in his stance.

This is another example of a common pattern among players who like to keep their right arm stiff at address and their upper right arm firmly against the body in the backswing.

Lesson of the Week: Frank Flynn

By Site | Videos: Lesson of the Week

Frank came all the way from Ireland (not specifically for this lesson but that sounds good) and has adapted a swing for his usual windy links course. Frank is an excellent player (a 1 handicap) and as you will see has an excellent swing with wonderful impact alignments. The first thing I noticed about his swing (other than how good it was) was how much he closed his entire setup, aiming his feet, hips and shoulders well to the right.
