Aw. Is that you? Topping all your shots from the fairway?
Doing a little hula hooping. You want more pars? The swing plane is a circle. Here it is. But it’s tilted. There it is. Where players go off is with their 3-wood, they get their circle too tilted vertical. All right. So, this is a vertical circle. This is a flatter circle. Now why does that matter with the 3-wood?
Well, the 3-wood is second in command to the driver. All right. So, it wants to be a little bit more around your body versus up and down. All right. You can get away with a little up and down with your shorter clubs, but with the 3-wood, no bueno. You can’t. All right, this is a really important point. I’m coming in close because it’s super important. These two clubs, driver and 3-wood, do not like steep. They’re not pals.
