    I am a 8 chap (42yrs) and long way to go from Mark. I have the same problem
    before. I don’t wanna change my swing path cause it took more time to
    practice since i am a weekend golfer. I just put my left foot fraction back
    so I stand a little bit open. With that i can do freely follow turn since
    my left foot fairly open. just keep the shoulder parallel with the target
    line. Now I hit straight or sometimes nice draw…. and one thing for sure…
    don’t ever think that you will hit the tree that park in the right in front
    the tee box. Golf to me is 90% mental and 10% technique. I am still
    learning and learning. I love to watch your vids Mark. Keep it going.

    +Mark Crossfield Good advice as per 🙂 Best advice ever, don’t roll the
    hands/wrists, as said here it’s not how they work. Left thumb sets upwards
    in the backswing & then releases downwards to point at the ball through
    impact so you get the flat left wrist, left arm, & club in a straight line.
    Confusion about wrist roll happens mostly because there is some forearm
    rotation in the swing. But thats because of the upper body rotation & the
    fact the arms are joined at the shoulders :)

  • Martin Moore:

    Really interested when I saw you giving coach blocked, sorry lockie a
    lesson with his driver. It worked for him and it’s helped me. My question
    is Could this principle be applied to all clubs, short irons, hybrids, 3
    wood off the floor or just drivers where you are hitting more up or would
    this technique with a gap wedge or 3 Hybrid cause a fat shot? Appreciate a
    response or anyone else out there. Thanks Martin 

  • mark bailey:

    Mark I noticed before you say “lets get stuck in” you had a right old smirk
    on your face…could that have been in anticipation of the comment bound
    ensue from this video??? +Coach Lockey #blockey lmao.

  • XesserX:

    Sounds like Lockey is trying to hide his true identity! We’ve got you
    figured out, “Craig from Leicester”! ;-)

  • Jonathan W Golf:

    Excellent video Mark. The anti-wrist roll advice is spot on. Thanks for
    sharing.

  • jason burton:

    I’m down the range trying this using the thought of hitting it high left
    and I must say Mr C I love you!!!!

  • Steven Murata:

    Thanks for explanation. Really appreciate all your videos.

  • ouodo:

    Mark, you’re so good at this man

  • Owain Rhys Price:

    Loving this, I’ve literally started doing this for about 2 weeks and am now
    hitting it longer and straighter. I’ve always been told I’m stuck on
    downswing where I push slice or hook but since I’ve got my hands feeling as
    if I’m weak and gay and just letting them flip if u like it’s helped me now
    end. You have just confirmed what I am doing as correct 

  • Kevin Harris:

    I have struggled with hitting blocks or even worse block fades. I recently
    recorded my swing and noticed my right elbow didn’t stay tucked in on down
    swing. On slow practises noticed this helped my face to close. Tried it
    yesterday in range &on corse eureka a draw. Not sure if it is the elbow or
    that feeling stopping me early extend try this also. 

  • Peter Pettersson:

    Who asked this, REALY? #blockey #foreright

  • nico boller:

    Hey Mark I have a question: Is there a common reason on why I top some
    shots and on other shots I hit them fat?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Alun Davies:

    Great vid

  • brianstere:

    That’s great advice Mark. I’ve never heard anyone describe the wrist
    movement like that and it makes perfect sense. Any of my friends who have
    fixed their push/slice end up with an awful hook because they turn their
    wrists. I have never wanted to get too wristy for that reason but the push
    or block is still my big miss. I’ll try to think about it this way from
    now on. Thanks

  • Gino Lopriore:

    I don’t have a blocking issue but still found that helpful in regards to
    how to draw the ball.

    Good stuff.

  • Strat TelePaul:

    I occasionally have this problem towards the end of the round when I’m
    tired. For me, it feels like my lower body gets through impact way before
    my arms and I hit a dead straight push about 30 yards right.
