Question from David T

I tend to scoop the ball with my irons rather than hitting down on the ball, but am working on it. You say to hit down on the ball with the hybrid club, but you also said to brush the grass. Will brushing the grass get as much distance and ball control as hitting down on the ball?

You can still hit down on the ball and brush the grass after the ball . It just requires a shallow angle of attack.

After hearing all these guys and reading all the book and buying all the DVDs, i have come tot the conclusion "hitting down" is the most misused phrase in the business. Martin Chuck has very carefully explained the difference between 12:15 and 12:16 on the clock face is 6 degrees so he wants maybe a 3 to 4 degree angle of attack. That is hitting down as you are swinging down on an arc, most anything is hitting down as long as you are hitting the ball or just after the ball center. So you can do both. It seems some people think you have to compress the ball into the ground, nothing is further from the truth. If you feel you are hitting down then you are probably doing it way too much. This gets into feel VS real. LH Tom

Very interesting to see how relaxed his right thumb is, as he flexes it prior to the shot.

Fantastic suggestions! Excellent to tell people to try this or that and see how it works for them. Most people want to be told exactly what to do and what will happen, like, "How far can I hit a pitch shot with such and such method?", or something similar. Get out and experiment and find out what you can do. Everyone is different. See what you can do.
