Golf is different for everyone. Phil says great chippers have great tempo which helps the full swing. Been more diligent practicing chips and pitches and it has paid off.

I just read the golf swing secrets “Jοmtοzο kaha” (Google it) immediately after I acquired it and the following day I was at the golf field testing out the driving techniques for much longer range. I was astonished when I quickly hit my irons with appropriate divots with strong impact. I was hitting about ten to fifteen yards farther with my irons than I was accustomed to. Get yours now! .

Chris Smith says:

Exactly right! After 25 years of playing badly a coach in Bangkok told me to lower the plane of my swing. Immediately I found torque – hip turning become the most natural thing and I'm hitting them 200 easily now!
