Ever watch a PGA Tour telecast and wonder how those guys hit 8-irons 180 yards? The biggest reason is their swing path. The testing described on the preceding pages proves that if your downswing doesn't come from inside the target line -- like a tour pro's does -- you're giving up chunks of yardage. I'll show you how to fix the faults that throw your swing to the outside.
Before we get started on swing faults, make sure your setup includes these things: (1) The creases between your thumbs and forefingers are parallel and pointing to the right side of your face; (2) Your shoulders are parallel to your target line; (3) Your ball position is just in front of center for irons and under your shirt logo for woods. Setup errors can cause an out-to-in path, so check there first.
