  2. Hi Jason,

    I am working on improving my golf game and I just got alot of tips from your youtube channel and it was very helpful. I was wondering if you had any tips of suggestions for hitting irons off of the tee and also hitting irons from the fairway.

    If you’d like you can email me at huntp5790@comcast.net or you can respond here.

    Thank you very much in advance

    1. I would take a look at th 123 backswing, transition, or the release videos. That should be all you need to get started. I will be filming more shows very soon.
      thanks for the view

  3. Guru,
    Long time no talk or see. I’m having trouble with my swing. To many teachers have been telling me to sway and i cant get solid contact consistently. If you could send me my video from school when we were there in April of 2009 that would be great. Or I could tape my new swing and send it to you to analyze.

    Thanks,
    Mike Savoia Jr

    1. Hey Michael. Great to hear from you. It was great working with your parents and catching up with them. It sounds like you are doing well in college and working at a great place as an intern. Tell Mr. Glenz I said hello. Please tape your swing and upload it to youtube.com and I can analyze it and either put it on the blog or send you and email with some feedback.
      Let me know when and how I can view it
      Jason
