Ask the Experts

I'm often wondering on the golf course how I can balance the speed of my round with playing a round of golf that's respectful of etiquette, my playing partners and my own enjoyment.

Clear your hips
I'm now approaching seventy years of age. I find it harder and harder to clear my hips. To help this I try to square up my shoulders when I set up, but I set up with a slightly open stance.

Opening up your stance
I've heard several instructors say that for shots within 80 yards you need to have an open stance. Why is this and how open should the stance be?

Snap hooks
I am a 1 handicapper that strugles with the pull or snap hooks on my bad days but only with the driver or 3 wood. My clubface position at the top is square to just slightly shut and I have worked hard over the years to get to square.

Pulling Drives
I keep PULLING my drives....I hit the ball consistently 275-300 yards but seem to pull 70% of my shots. I use the King Cobra LV 4 X driver and Cobra S9 irons. Is there a drill I can try to fix this? Thank you for your time.

Increase swing speed
I am a 13 hcp and would like some drills to increase my swng speed. My driver speed is about 95 mph. Would longer shafts help? I am 5 ft 9in tall.

Grip drill
During the swing, my right hand (right handed) tends to open off of the grip during the back swing (my palm tends to open up on the back swing uncovering the thumb of my left hand). Is that correct or is that a flaw? How do I fix?

Pressure on the grip
Please please tell me the mystery of the pressure on the grip. I heard left hand only hits the ball. How much does the right hand play through the swing . I tried to keep equal pressure with both hands. Is this correct?

Elbow placement
When I address the ball, my left arm is straight. Should my elbow face the target? My arm tries to twist, pointing my elbow towards my left hip.

Overcome mental obstacles
Im not a beginner I consistently shoot in the mid 80's but am trying to take my mental game to the next level. I feel I am physically capable of shooting in the 70's but cannot overcome the mental aspect of the game.

Proper alignment
Whenever I am hitting practice shots from a tee box I can get myself easily into the right alignment and I hit the ball very well. It makes sense that because of the tee box, getting properly aligned is a breeze. But when I play from a regular tee or fairway etc.

Play it foward
What is the best ball position in the stance to play a hybrid club to get best height? I have heard to play the ball just inside the front foot, and some say to play the ball back in the stance with the club shaft pressed forward.
