Flush Your Fairway Woods

The problem most amateurs face when hitting their fairway woods is overswinging. When you get the club going too far in the backswing, the entire timing of the swing is thrown off, which can result in multiple kinds of mishits depending on how you try to compensate for the abnormal length of the swing.

Since working with Gary’s team, I have lowered by score by 2 strokes on average. It’s tough when you’re a +1 to do that. Gary’s simple and fun understanding of the game makes it EASY to learn. The drills, video and use of his app make making a change in my swing simple and rewarding. His on course management made the game fun again for me. He also taught me that’s it’s OK to make a mistake and not take things too seriously.
