    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.

    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.

    Adam, I suspect you are right. Years ago when I took lessons from a former touring pro, Pete Cooper, I had to fight over swinging and lifting the club straight up to increase my swing length. As you know when you haven’t practiced a lot for a while you sometimes tend to return to old habits. Thanks for a great lessons and drills.

    Adam, this is great information. I’m 68, started playing golf rather late. Wish I’d had this instruction when I started. I tend to over think the process. Will try to rewind and learn again using your ideas of flow and letting go. Regards, Jim Shaffer

    I know with an iron and putter, theres a certain way to hold and swing it. Is there one for the driver too or just how we feel?

    Hi Adam. Do you offer in-person lessons in Florida, as well? Do you have a site with information on this? I like your philosophy and style of teaching. Many thanks!

    Adam can you please show how to hold a golf club for left handed players. Also I can only grip a club with baseball style grip. Any other way i get really bad blisters

    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

    This is really great. I am going out for the 1st time on Sunday. These videos have been great to help me learn a little bit more of what I need to be doing. Thank you!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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?

    Went to the driving range last night for the very first time and was wondering what I was doing wrong. Which is the complete opposite to what you just showed lol. So I’m going again tonight to give it another shot. Thanks for the lesson. From myself, here in New Zealand 🇳🇿

    Being 5’7” and a shorter golfer, does that make golfing harder because your arms and longer clubs are more disconnected from your body??

    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!

    Just discovered this channel and it looks really interesting. I originally thought you were American at the start then noticed you sounded English 🙂

    I’m a pretty good former athlete who always struggled hitting a golf ball…with your lower body, do you just want to turn your feet with the swing of the club or keep them pretty firm and not worry about that aspect?

    This really helped me who has relative success with irons but struggled with driving.. I always tried to muscle the ball, a psychological thing with driving and wanting that distance… this helped immensely and is part of my weekend routine. Thanks, Adam!
