PETER KESSLER
NOW AT THE RISK OF RUINING YOUR GOLF GAME, SHARE WITH US YOUR BASIC KEYS TO GOOD GOLF IF YOU WOULD BE SO KIND.

JOANNE CARNER
UH... ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT THE ENTIRE SWING OR UH

PETER KESSLER
YEAH THE, THE THREE OR FOUR THINGS THAT YOU THINK ARE MOST IMPORTANT FOR YOU AND THEN MAYBE WE'LL GET TO THE THINGS THAT MOST RECREATIONAL WOMEN PLAYERS DON'T DO PROPERLY.

JOANNE CARNER
WELL I, AS I SAID EARLIER YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A GOOD GRIP, BECAUSE IN ORDER TO WORK THE BALL, YOU HAVE TO.... START WITH A GOOD BASIC GRIP. YOU CAN'T START REAL STRONG AND THEN TRY AND HIT OUT OF A BUNKER... YOU KNOW, OR

OVER TREES OR WHAT NOT. IT JUST DOESN'T WORK. YOU CAN'T PLAY THAT SHOT, SO, YOU HAVE TO START WITH A GOOD GRIP AND THEN FROM THERE I, I THINK IT'S, IT'S A MATTER OF WHETHER YOU WANT TO PLAY A LITTLE FADE OR A

LITTLE DRAW. I LIKE A LITTLE FADE FOR, FOR CONTROL, SO I SET EVERYTHING JUST SLIGHTLY, JUST SLIGHTLY OPEN AND, AND BEYOND THAT I THINK IT'S ON YOUR FLEXIBILITY AS TO HOW MUCH YOU, YOU TURN. I, I DON'T TURN QUITE AS MUCH

NOW, BUT I ALWAYS HAD JUST A THREE QUARTER SWING. I FELT I WANTED CONTROL OF THE BALL MORE THAN DISTANCE, SO I, I WOULD WORK ON ACCURACY. IN OTHER WORDS, IF I HAD THE HUNDRED YARD SIGN OUT THERE

AND I'M PRACTICING WEDGES I WANT TO HIT THE MIDDLE ZERO, AND, AND THAT'S WHAT, WHAT I WORK ON ALL THE TIME. ACCURACY WITH THE SHORT CLUBS. THE DRIVER, I THINK YOU'D NEED TO LEARN TO HIT IT LON.. HARD. MOST PEOPLE WANT TO

JUST HAVE A NICE SMOOTH, BUT I THINK IF YOU END UP EACH SESSION HITTING 5, 6 BALLS HARD, YOU GRADUALLY LEARN TO INCREASE YOUR SPEED TO HIT THE BALL HARDER AND STRAIGHTER, YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU FIRST START, YOU'LL START

SPRAYING, BUT THEN YOU, YOU LEARN TO BRING IT IN AND UH I USED TO DO THAT TO GET RID OF TENSION... AS TENSION WAS BUILDING, BECAUSE IT BUILDS, NO MATTER WHAT CALIBER GOLFER YOU ARE, EVEN AS A PROFESSIONAL, IT BUILDS, SO YOU HAVE TO GET RID OF IT, SO WHAT I WOULD DO IS

JUST STAND UP WITH A DRIVER AND JUST HIT IT AS HARD AS I COULD SO I HAD TO BE ABLE TO, TO CONTROL THE BALL TO SOME DEGREE WITH THAT.

PETER KESSLER
WHY, AND YOU WOULD KNOW THIS FROM EXPERIENCE AT YOUR SCHOOLS, WHY DO MANY WOMEN HAVE THE PROBLEM OF GETTING THE CLUB AND WRAPPING IT AROUND THEIR NECK, INSTEAD OF BEING
ABLE TO GET TO THAT THREE QUARTER POSITION FOR CONTROL?

JOANNE CARNER
MOST OF THEM HAVE NO WRIST COCK.

PETER KESSLER
SHOW ME.

JOANNE CARNER
YOU KNOW, I MEAN THEY, THEY START AND THEY'RE, THEY'RE OVER IT. THEIR POSTURE IS A LITTLE OFF TOO, BUT, BASICALLY, THEY START AND THEY GO AND THEY GET TO HERE. NOW THEY SHOULD BE COCKING THEIR WRISTS AND

THEY JUST KEEP GOING. UP. SEE. SO THEY HAVE LOST THEIR POSTURE AND THEY HAVE NO WRIST COCK. NOW THEY'RE TRYING TO, TO SORT OF HIT FROM THERE AND THERE'S, THERE'S NO HIT THERE, SEE.

RATHER THAN THEY SHOULD TAKE IT AWAY AND THEN HAVE IT TOTALLY COCKED AT THIS POINT AND FOR A LOT OF OUR WOMEN NOW, WHAT I TRY TO DO IS GET THEM STARTING WITH IT RIGHT AWAY, YOU KNOW, EVEN IF THEIR ARMS ARE IN CLOSE TO THEMSELVES. ONCE

THEY LEARN THIS MOVE, THEN YOU CAN GRADUALLY EXTEND THE CLUB. GET IT A LITTLE WIDER, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE THE HIT AND TO GET A HIT, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE WRIST COCK, TO POUND THE NAIL OR,
OR HIT THE GOLF BALL.

PETER KESSLER
WHEN YOU WOULD OCCASIONALLY FIND YOURSELF NOT PLAYING YOUR BEST GOLF, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING WRONG THAT GOT YOU IN TROUBLE?

JOANNE CARNER
MOST OF THE TIME IT'S ALIGNMENT AND IT'S UH SPEED. VERY FAST. YOU KNOW, YOUR TAKE AWAY IS, IS FAST, EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. WHEN I PLAYED
MY BEST GOLF I USED TO TAKE IT TO THE TOP COMPLETELY, HOLD IT, AND THEN HIT

THE BALL, AND I DID THIS HOURS AFTER HOURS UH PRACTICING BECAUSE I KNEW THAT UNDER PRESSURE YOUR SWING GETS

FASTER SO IF I COULD LEARN TO HIT THE BALL TOTALLY STOPPED UP HERE, THEN
WHEN I GOT FASTER UNDER PRESSURE I STILL WOULD HAVE A HESITATION.

PETER KESSLER
BEFORE WE GO TO BREAK, WHY DON'T YOU HIT ONE SHOT FOR US IF YOU WOULD.

JOANNE CARNER
ON THE CLUBFACE, OR?

PETER KESSLER
YES, MA'AM. RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

JOANNE CARNER
OR BEHIND IT?

PETER KESSLER
I, I ONLY SEE ONE MARK ON THAT CLUBFACE AND IT'S THE EXACT CENTER OF THAT CLUB.

JOANNE CARNER
ALRIGHT

PETER KESSLER
GOOD AS EVER.

JOANNE CARNER
