    Great advice CJ,

    I like to also work out where the distance markers are to the green so I can visualize what I need to hit to have a certain club in my hand to hit to the green.

      Thanks Troy for the blog post. That is some great advice also and I hope it helps someone reading these posts. Best wishes.

        Dear CJ, I loved your mini clinics but have been disappointed that you did not demonstrate the correct way to use a fairway wood – say low profile 3’s or 4’s, also when to use them on any lie either on the centre of the fairway or from the semi-rough. Would be grateful for your
        kind advice.
        Best wishes
        Phil.

          Phil Pearce,
          Thanks Phil for the question. The proper way to play fairway woods depends ultimately on the lie. If the ball is sitting nicely in the fairway you want a sweeping motion thus you will setup with your weight 55% on your right side and the ball more forward in your stance. If the ball is sitting down you want to choke down slightly thus moving closer to the ball. this will create a steeper downswing automatically and you want to setup with your weight 50/50 more like an iron. Hope this helps.

    Hi CJ,

    Enjoying your program for sure. But I’m struggling and need some advice. I’m a 9 handicap..usually.
    I say that because of my profound inconsistencies. It would seem to me that by now I shouldn’t be hitting disaster shots. Off my target a little, sure..but not disaster shots.

    It seems that I can range from hitting toe shots to heel shots at any given time.
    I don’t know if it’s my plane, grip or wrists causing this. It’s embarrassing. I’ll be playing in
    A group -1 after 6 holes, come to a par three and shank it.

    My drives can be beautiful. Then out come the slices. I’ve actually been at my driving range and
    despite splitting my hands…I still slice. I can only hook if I exaggerate everything. It seems that I either slice or shank. I seldom chunk it, top it or skull it. Always a slice or a shank.

    Just so frustrating. Just need some ideas. One more thing, sorry for rambling. I’ve checked my divots and I’ll see a nice index card shaped divot nice and square to my target yet the ball flight was a push! Perplexing. Please shed some light on this! Thank you so much.

    Strange fact that may have an effect: I write right handed and throw a frisbee right handed but I play all other sports left handed.

      Kevin Johnson,
      Thanks Kevin for the question. It simply sounds like your club face is open to cause these shots. It could be posture so check that first. Second keep over exaggerating until you are hitting a hook with ease. You must keep doing this. the push is simply an open club face causing this also. Face angle determines about 87% of where the ball starts out.

  5. Hi CJ,
    Just had to drop you a line to let you know that for the past three weeks that I have been playing, since using your coaching and drills, that I have been hitting the ball so straight that I have not lost a single ball and have hit all the fairways with my tee shots. Still don’t have the distance but that will come with time. Thanks so much!!
    Cheers, Richard

    • CJ Goecks says:

      Richard,
      Thats awesome man keep up the great work. Keep me informed and let me know if you have any questions. I definitely think you should gain distance especially if your hitting the ball more solid. Let’s keep in touch and address this in a few weeks if you haven’t seen an improvement.
      Keep em Long and Straight,
      CJ

      • Hi CJ. Just have one question. Do you have a drill that will help me keep my eyes on the ball through impact? My main problem is that about half the time, I look to see where the ball is going involuntarly ? Can you help?
        Cheers, Ric

        • CJ Goecks says:

          Richard Langhans,
          Thanks Richard for the question. I wouldn’t worry about keeping your head down. This is the first tip that every amateur tells someone else, because that is what they were told. This is the worst information you could ever tell someone. Amateurs teach amateurs to play like amateurs. Keeping your head down stops the rotation of the body and will cause you to scoop the ball. understand that if your trying to fix your swing by keeping your head down that there are other issues you should address first.
          Keep em Long and Straight,
          CJ
