-To hit stinger shots like Tiger Woods did en route to victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, here's what you need to do. First, steepen your shoulder line to make a steeper angle of approach. Next, make a full upper body rotation. Finally, keep your trail palm up throughout the swing. This will keep the club face open, eliminating the hook.
-To increase your shoulder turn, point the back of your trail shoulder to your target at the top of your backswing. This will improve your power and accuracy.

A: Focus on ball position as an upper body thing, not lower body. Play the ball with your driver off of your lead armpit.
