ONE of my current problems is hitting thin and or hitting with no divits on my irons, be they long or wedge shots.

These are the symptoms of swinging too fast and/or looking up.

Try this as an experiment: hold your club lightly btween thumb and two fingers in each hand. You'll will be surpised how far you can hit that way, proving that there is no need to swing fast. So, slow down. Afterall most of us are not the John Daly type.

Funny that we all want to see our ball fly away. Rest assured if you hit straight you will find your ball on the fairway or green. If not, your playing partners will be only too happy to point out that you are in trouble.

A friend who is nearly a scratch golfer told me he overcame "looking up" by taking his right shirt collar between his teeth. (not recommended for golfers with dentures).
