Something I came across and food for thought for those of us who are trying/have tried to copy the swings of tour players and seem to find our balls curving right all the time.

Obviously this article is not written for the naturally athletic and talented fast swingers and long hitters in this forum so please refrain from making comments about how these drills are crap and keep causing youto hook the ball cos of your above 100mph swing speed.

Lol! I agree ... Be warned though ... Getting too good at this can suddenly bring a whole new experience of seeing your golf ball going dead straight then veering 45 deg hard left ....

I think the Jim flick drill is more like taking a backswing then stepping forward with your left foot and swinging at the ball in one uninterrupted motion.
