Hi Doc - can you help? I have been playing Golf for nearly 40 years and I have always had the nemesis of dropping the club too far on the inside on the way down - I very rarely take divots and when I do they are always right of the target.sometimes the iron shots feel thin and the sensation is of flipping my wrists. Love the PPGS but can you help- Neil in London.

Just had a chance to listen. A few things.
Number 1. Great to hear Don's doing well. as far as his game? Give it a season for a real test.

Number 2. Hoping for a good year for DJ. Great guy.

Number 3. Loved that 5 wood 3 hybrid answer by Doc. Got both this month.

Number 4. Lot a stuff being thrown out on TV by instructors right now. You know what channel. I enjoy listening but I always give it the Surge test. What would he think? I always hear the saying that you must be a student of the game. I'm a student of the Surge.

Number 5. Don's rock on a rope and skipping a rock on a lake tips almost always puts me back in place. I think they are super swing thoughts. I must like rocks.'s picture

Have been following Don's videos and instruction for years and have benefited
greatly. I love to go back to refer to old files when my swing falls apart.
I would love to play more often to get more consistent, perhaps later.Thanks Don you do a great job and should be followed by more golfers.

I am a left hand golfer , am I on the right track , my downswing is a bump to the right
