Would you recommend choking up on the club for better control? Not really a beginner but sometimes going back to square one helps me. Having trouble getting solid contact and keeping it straight but I absolutely mash my irons. Any advice helps. Thanks!
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 2 years ago
Yes, choking up on the club would make life easier. It can cost a bit of distance, but if you hit it more solidly it will make up for that.

Being 5’7” and a shorter golfer, does that make golfing harder because your arms and longer clubs are more disconnected from your body??
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 2 years ago
Thomas,
Thanks for the question. I don't really think so, in some ways harder, and some easier (in general). Shorter statured players tend to have less problems with their posture and swing plane, taller players can often create more arc and speed. Not sure if this helps.

Mike Rodrick - 3 years ago
Hi Adam;
My issue with a driver is that I'm over rotating my hips & not staying behind the ball to be able to hit up on it causing a flat swing. I do the same with short irons which is causing pulls. I know I'm supposed to be making a small lateral shift before the hip turn but can't seem to sync it with the rest of the swing.I'm an intermediate level player. Can you help me resolve this?
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 3 years ago
It's hard to say without seeing you swing, but generally I'd focus more on the club. The body is pretty amazing how it works, and if you have a clear picture of what you want to do with the club, and your mind stays quiet (not swing thoughts and "aiming at the ball") I think you'll see progress.
All the best, Adam

Hi Adam ; My issue is that I'm hitting my driver way too low. I know why, but can't seem to correct it. I'm not staying behind the ball & hitting up on it, but rather turning my hips in a circular motion making my swing too flat & sometimes causing a slice. I know the ball is positioned properly in my stance so that's not the issue. Is there a drill to correct this? Thanks.
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 3 years ago
+Mike Rodrick
Mike,
If you could find an upslope to hit off I'd recommend it. Also hit some half speed shots with the ball teed up higher than normal, pick it off tee. Usually the challenge is mental, people strike at the ball instinctively, try to feel the motion and don't worry about contact initially.
Hope this helps a bit.

Adam has an outstanding ability to simplify and humanize the game, especially for us average golfers. My wife and I love his lessons. He's so pragmatic and easy to listen to. We both have gone back to the basics just to follow his no-nonsense advice and techniques. In the several weeks since we were lucky enough to land on one of his lessons, our scores haven't improved significantly, but we are getting some very good results hitting the ball. We just have to pull it together and practice Adam's advice. Great teaching style, Adam! Thanks. Tom and Joan

SerenityNow - 3 years ago
It's so easy to show someone this stuff but you put a club in a beginners hand and for someone who looks completely unnatural swinging the club, to implement any of this is incredibly difficult. I always try to instruct people to keep their eye on the ball first and foremost to try and learn to make contact with the ball before anything else. Because if someone can't connect with the ball at all, it makes golfing unbearable.
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 3 years ago
Thanks for the comment. I generally find results come when newer golfers relax, and try to just get some decent motion. Sometimes (just my experience) it they are told to "watch the ball" they have rather jerky ball oriented swings. Certainly some people just have much more aptitude for the game than others though.

Great video im going range this evening and will try all this. every drive my ball striking is lovely bang middle of club and the ball starts straight enough in the air but around 100 yds it starts turning right and ends way right. i cant shake it off as on the range i could hit 100 balls and 70 will go perfectly straight.

this has been fantastic... however when I bend my arms I start topping the ball... do you have video to take me beyond the mallet idea? which as I say has trained me to hit straight and consistently, just want to work on increasing the distance a bit now
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 3 years ago
Thanks, glad you're making progress. Bending the arms through impact usually means that there is not enough energy being transferred out to the club (centrifugal force) through impact. If it's of interest I offer full courses in simple building block fashion at www.scratchgolfacademy.com

Thank you Adam! I am relearning many of my golfing skills and this video is very helpful. Due to a variety of reasons - including health issues, i have played very few rounds of golf for the last 6 years or so. Before that I was a six handicap. My driver used to be one of my best clubs and now it is my worst. I have been working on shorter, controlled swings. Surprisingly, I hit a drive further than my full swing drives today. My ball contact, launch angle and ball spin seemed to be ideal on that swing. The next swing I tried a full swing and made very poor contact.

John R Yujuico - 4 years ago
I just subscribed. Good videos. On all full swing shots with all clubs, could you talk about an upright swing vs a more around the body swing? I can hit them both but don't know which one I should concentrate on. I am 5'8" and a former Big 10 Baseball player. My Mantra is "Everything in Moderation, Keep it Simple, Less is Best." I am seeking a Simple, Compact, Repeatable swing with all clubs. Thank you.

OK Thanks Adam. I am an athlete and can very quickly recognize athletic movement in others. Along with simplicity, your swing depicts that. Compact, simple with no "Whips & Jingles." Excellent advice also.
Scratch Golf Academy
Scratch Golf Academy - 4 years ago
John,Thanks for your question. I agree with you, keep it simple. I don't think a swing has to be either upright or flat, can certainly be in between (left arm covering right shoulder as viewed down the line). If you have a lot of lateral leg drive a little more upright might be good.Later this summer I will be offering full video courses in all aspects of the game, lots of details and parameters, at www.scratchgolfacademy.com Thanks, Adam

Cedric, You can make it as wide (more forgiving) as you like, but I'd go about an inch on each side of the club. Lean the tee on the heel side of the club back a bit so it's similar to the shaft angle of the club. Hope this helps.

Best, Adam
