  • My biggest bugaboo is a quick hook off the tee.  The quick hook can come out of no where and the worst part is the swing does not feel that bad.  If I could figure out the swing flaw that causes these it would help recover a round that might go south really quickly.  Martin Chuck's youtube videos are very insightful and have far more content that the majority of videos churning out the same golf cliches.  Working with Martin's staff to improve would be a great experience.

Inconsistent mid to long irons/hybrids

I'm playing a lot of 9 hole rounds to try and fit in more golf right now, I practice my short game at home all the time so that I can have fun on the course.

Getting off the tee. I used to be a long driver of the ball, but 5-6 years ago I hurt my back and couldn't play for several years. I've been reinventing my swing for the last 18-24 months and my ball striking with my irons has been improving greatly, but me game off the tee is totally inconsistent. Giant slices, snap hooks and everything in between. Every time I think I've got it figured out I start my next round and its back to square one. Even with the struggles I've managed to get my handicap down to an 8.8, but I know if i could just stay on the reservation with my driver I could really start shooting competitive scores again.

Far and Sure

To be candid (and probably take myself out of consideration), I'm concerned that even if Mr. Chuck helps me at school I'll still fall apart on the course.


For the past 4 years I hit anywhere from 1000-1500 shots a week: A large bucket on the range (sometimes 2), 50-100 shots on the chipping green, plus 50-100 putts at each session, 3 times a week, sometimes more. It took me 2 years to overcome the slice. My short game is acceptable and sometimes pleasing. Par 3s are the holes where I have the greatest chance to par.

Par 5s and long par 4s tend to be blowouts.


Mental: Many times at the range I "feel" it when I address the ball. I know I'm going to make good contact and I execute well (especially after a duff) I can sometimes get the shape I attempt, but mostly I drive a natural draw.


The problem comes when I only get one shot on the tee box. I can't count the times i start a round certain that I'll recreate what I accomplished on the range only to execute my same old over-torqued duck hook drive.


Timing: When driving and hitting long on the range, lagging and squaring many times feels so natural and easy. But I'm rarely able to recreate the feeling on the tee box. Old habits raise their ugly head: Over-gripping, trying to kill the shot, turning my head before i make contact, imbalanced stance (too much weight on my toes), not finishing the swing gracefully (usually because I swing too hard)...


All of my ailments might boil down to confidence and I question if that's what Martin intends to deliver.


But if I am selected, I believe that I can write an articulate and thorough review.

I'm a 9 handicap and I think that iron play is my weakest link. On good short game days I score well. I think my putting is good, but I have too many three putts. Mostly because of lagging inconsistently.

I did shoot my age yesterday (72) from the short tees. (5311)

I mostly play the white tees (5977) and my drives are from 200 yards to 250 on a dry, hard course. I Watch you frequently on Revolution Golf and I thank you for your consideration,

Two way miss with driver. It's maddening to not know where the driver is going because you cannot get comfortable and the whole round is a battle.


As an aside...I don't fly but would be willing to drive to Phoenix on my own dime in a heartbeat for this. Best Christmas ever!

  • Your biggest golf bugaboo: wedge game too inconsistent to take advantage of opportunities to make birdie. Also the driver can be my best club or worst, depending on the day.
