    Good information that could be beneficial but something is very lost in the hyperactivity and Matt’s over-verbal inflections. Would like to see some highlight graphics excentuating his power oints of the lesson.

    I thought it was excellent. The salient points were well emphasized by Matt. Contrary to the previous comment, I appreciate Matt’s enthusiasm and his teaching style. In fact, I watched two others of his videos, the bunker shot and the low run up to the green. In all of them, there were two or three critical concepts that make the particular shot come off. He did a nice job of getting these points across to the viewer.

    What will happen if you have your hands forward at address? I do that sometimes. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Usually, “MSG” isn’t good for you. But when it stands for “Mr. Short Game,” it is!

    Makes sense to me – can’t wait to practice it is presented. I’ve been working on keeping shits lower and more controlled into greens, anyway – so this is perfect if I can actually pull it off!

    When using this approach, once the ball hits the green what will be the roll out or checking distance? Use the example in the Video 115 yards out with a nine iron.

    Watch your slo-mo.Your hands are in front of the club head over your left thigh at impact so they are not centered. You also let the club head pass your hands in the follow through.

    The whole reason for the forward shaft lean is to de-loft the clubhead to keep the flight lower. In my opinion and from my experience, using a lower lofted club and controlling distance with the speed of your body rotation is much more accurate and has a higher percentage of successful distance control.

    Anyway this is played it is a feel shot. I have always been very successful using a 5W, chocking down as you prescribe and using 4 different rotation speeds with a half swing 3 O’clock to 9 O’clock. This will result in a ball flight of about 15-30ft of an apex and will roll a good piece once it lands.
