One of the most important things is to understand your golf swing so you can be in control of it. This means if you are having an off day, you are able to know what you are doing wrong and how to fix it. Having a system and a few helpful checkpoints can save a lot of headaches.

Square everything up in your setup. This includes your clubface, feet, hips, forearms, and shoulders. If things are not in parallel lines with your target line you are already putting yourself behind the 8 ball. Misalignment is a huge issue and about half the golfers I teach will have this problem. Before working on any swing path or other issues, we first have to get the golfer's alignment correct. This helps the swing stay on a correct path as the taylormade r11 irons swings in both the backswing and the downswing.

Get your swing in proper sequence. Golf sequence is huge especially if you want to hit straighter golf shots. The main principle I teach related to swing sequence is to lead with your club. This means on your backswing, your taylormade r11 irons are moving back and up first before your body. On your follow through after impact the club should also lead first and then your body will turn towards your target and follow your club. Golfers who get out of sync tend to get the club stuck way behind their bodies especially on the downswing. With the body already turned and coming out of the shot, there is no power except from using the arms and hands at impact. This is a weak position to hit the golf ball in and it will not be possible to maintain any kind of consistency with your swing.

Stay level in your golf swing. This principle is related to your angles that are formed in your setup. The 3 main angles you want to have come from bending the knees, bending at the hips, and the angle that is formed between your r11 irons shaft and your forearms as the arms hand down. Once you've gotten in a good setup position, the next step is to maintain these angles in your swing. This is your key to staying level in your swing. A key checkpoint is at the top of your backswing you should have kept your right knee bent.

Golfers who have a problem of standing up or dipping down sometimes don't realize that this originates with the knees. They may try to not lift up at all with their head and make an effort to keep their head down. The root of the problem is to maintain a proper knee flex especially with the right knee at the top of the backswing with r11 irons. If you are maintaining your angles, you never have to worry about what your head is doing. In fact, trying to force your head to stay down is really bad advice and can lead to other problems. The swing can become too tense and other errors can come up.
