Answers:
Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 1.
(b) two. The target is always the ball in front of you. The secondary target is the place you want it to go.


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 2.
(b) back spin. This gives it proper lift.


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 3.
(b) on the downswing. That�s the only way you can truly compress a golfball-even with a wood!


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 4.
(c) in front of the ball. It�s what you get when you hit down properly.


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 5.
(d) don�t think about it. You can deliberately try to do a, b, and c and still mishit the ball. The head must rotate with the rest of the body and the spine as you move through the shot.


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 6.
(d) your hands are the connection to the golf club � each one has a proper role. By using the hands properly, the rest of the body can react accordingly.


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 7.
All three play equally important roles but the people don�t always realize how significant the club itself is and how it can directly be related to your performance. See two articles � �Check Equipment for Proper Fit� and �Nine Questions on Clubfitting� (a two part article).


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 8.
Absolutely! Baseball offers a good comparison a player waiting for a pitch has his right arm bent, elbow down, and the left arm is slightly cocked-not locked at the elbow. Power comes from both forearms uncocking or straightening out to meet the ball with the end of the bat.


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 9.
Yes � see article on a different approach�


Gwen Miller's Golf FAQ
Question 10.
See two part article on the �Think of the Swing as a Throwing Motion and Pushing the Club Head.�
