  4. utubesugs says:

    Thanks coach! Very nurturing. The stories are very engaging.

  5. The words hit down hard, that's like ah ha for me. Now I enjoyed go hit the ball out of bunker 😂 Uses to hate the greenside bunker.

    Mike would be a little bit of an annoying teacher if you were paying by the hour and he kept talking, but he is absolutely ELECTRIC on YouTube. fantastic content, couldn't sub fast enough ha

  7. Jay Kamil says:

    damn this is great stuff – thanks

  8. I really like this coach. He's awesome. Wish he had his own channel.

  10. Excellent tutorial, love that he took you through the complete approach starting off the fairway and what to look for and how to fix it. Bloody great channel mate, influenced me to chang my HCP goal of 10 to 5.

  11. Awesome video 👍

  12. Crit says:

    Please listen to Mike when he said at 3:45 that you like to look at the club face closed, but he adjusted it to be back to normal. If you have a closed club face when you are learning golf, you will be trying to adjust your swing all sorts of ways to compensate which causes bad habits. Get that grip away from being so strong and put the club face back to flat and you'll improve from there. Closing the club face does not mean you are going to stop slicing the ball.

  13. I am really enjoying your journey. Mike is a tremendous teacher. Subbed and looking forward to seeing more.

  14. Hilda Hudson says:

    Such a helpful lesson! Will definitely practice with the line more! 👍⛳️

  15. Glad you're back with Mike. He's the best coach you've had on the channel so far

  16. JOHN HARBIN says:

    B.S. all pros are setting up and feeling like they draw the ball in standard bunker shots. The cut shot in bunkers are specialty shots not for high handicaps

  17. Andy Hall says:

    Yay Mike is Back 😁

  18. funny person says:

    I realized recently that the first 5000 hours of me learning golf as a hack were just spend chasing balls in the woods and learning to master shaping recovery punch shots I’ll never use the same way again.

    I’m exaggerating a bit, but this underscores a point. Why spend a lot of time learning skills that you will make obsolete with sufficient accuracy? Just work on the accuracy and avoid bunkers and shots in rough.

    Lol. Except that is easier said than done. Even pros get in the bunker so it never is completely made obsolete.

    In a perfect world you only have to spend your time on the tee, on the fairway and on the green.

    In reality, you should prioritize those and spend as little as required to learn how to just get back into play from the rough, woods, bunker, etc.

    I'd be nervous for the parked cars
