we're searching for the secret of golf. And when you search, there are different images that could really help. One of them, to hit the ball straighter and more solid, thinks of a hammer and a nail. So instead of a golf club and a golf ball, you have a hammer, and instead of a ball, there is a nail which is going in the exact direction of the target. So when I bring that hammer back, I'm looking at that nail -- I'm visualizing it. I'm bringing the hammer back -- and I'm looking -- the nail, the nail, the nail bang that nail straight it. I guarantee, if I could bang a nail straight in, and I use that same exact swing when I hit a club, that ball would go straight. So once again, I'm going to start with a short swing. I see that nail, I see it -- boom, hit is straight. I see that nail -- there it is, boom. Hit it straight. Now a little bigger -- I see that nail, boom, straight. I see that nail with a bigger swing -- boom, straight. Look at that nail, look at it, bang it, bang it. That is a straight drive. When you search for the secret of golf, one way to do it is with the hammer swing. Hold it like a hammer, bring it back like a hammer, see that nail, let everything natural -- if you can hit a nail straight into a wall, you can play great golf with the hammer swing.
