I Michael Briere had to be rude but Ian Poulter just call He wants his pants back. Well it's going to be a long time and a lot of money and the way I see it right now how many how many Red Bulls do you need to drink to come down. All your energy here. I watch a show and I love your show I've crucial -- I feel that maybe you make coffee nervous what do you make profit -- Not that I know of but you know what I don't get near I don't drink this stuff so the answer the questions like I don't know the answer is -- the TV viewers -- you this high energy guy who you know it's a good question -- answer is. I'm the only guy Michelle. So when you're looking at the camp when I stop talking. There's nothing element it's not like you are having a conversation or like a two man think again. We just don't have. It used to it's you can't kick it over so there's nobody -- -- one man -- I understand you've got married 918. Now golf pro should get married on 918 well and then also in ten. So we had a golf stuff 918 and then of course I'm tired. Attend so all while the numbers are perfect all -- yet it was perfect all the numbers didn't -- yet every single one it was a fluke I play golf and your wedding I did. Yeah -- would issue I shot. I shot 69 and you know this is the PGA show here and this is not X rated I was I shot two under. That's a lot better at a lot better if you were teaching golf what was it. -- I would -- greens were you could sell cars outback -- I might check out of the putt putt by and wanna go back to teaching us. It's confusing to me I've been taken at hop lessons for forty years -- -- and I've tried every. And I've written books in magazines and listen in a lot of top teaching program. It's confusing business -- Butch says this Leadbetter says this Haney says this Foley says this that I turn them -- they get flat what is that confusing business it's. If you look at martial -- There's a number of different forms of martial arts whether it's Tai Kwon -- or Tai chi or whatever it. And I think that if you stay in one principle. In other words if you stick with what. Butch -- believe we stick with what Leadbetter believes -- you stick with what I believe four. Second -- guys are -- who. Then you're going to be close. It's when you start mixing that stuff together. And your -- BMW parts and Mercedes that's exactly what you did to me one of the hardest things with office mixing the field. Where can you show me how to pitch quarter that to me. At no point to tell me where up or take my arm back and were to release you would have looked. At the target. I don't how do you mix the mechanical and -- feel parts of teaching the ball well. And that's a great question. All the studies that I've done you can get is complicated. As you want or you can make it this -- as simple as you can. Basically what happens is that there's. Two types of mindset now there's way more than that but basically right lefty Ryan -- it's you're either facial there analytical. -- Like a guy like you. You're probably very special guy you're probably very creative very entrepreneurial just by the stuff that you do in the jobs that you haven't things that. That you have decided to do -- your life I would teach you very station we almost like you were Ben Crenshaw what does that mean especially I wouldn't give you things to do with here. Bending your right elbow I might paint a different picture for that was kind of conceptual. Hit it low play that you know let's take the club and feel like you're lifting them the arms up into the year or. Imagine that you're gonna hit a ball through -- window on the first floor instead of hitting a window on the third. That type stuff and then through the field. Which for you with what works. But there are some people that don't work that way they're out there that more analytical you give us tips for a living what's the best -- you wherever -- off. It's like I have one it's just get the left shoulder to the champ. And wait for it to get there to me that keeps me centered because I'm tall guy who would sway -- at him that's all I have to think about. I would tell you it does the best tip that I ever got that actually was from my father. Has grown. And do you do you remember. The shampoo -- yeah. Green Green Green that's right. So my dad would always. We always say when is temple now that He just wanted to feel like you're swinging in a bottle round. And swinging in a problem look at in other words. You're not playing under a lot of problems that's right the first couple steps -- like your swing and it was so that's my -- that. Felix we've battled -- that was probably the best. The best tip that I never gotten it happened before woods the favorite tip that you that you give out. My my favorite -- that I give out so many people like you say turns to left shoulder. So the way the shoulders work. Is they have some freedom of -- and compressed to the chest like this so I can move my shoulder. -- 45 inches without moving my guy. So my favorite tip that I give that -- to tell people to turn their back so that it faces that. Guitar -- fairway so if you get set up like this. And I turned my shoulder I can move my shoulder or not really move my body it's almost a false -- but if I take my back and I turn my back to the target. Everything has to move. My arms my shoulder the golf club -- variable so it just gets you to where you get there and all of a sudden now you make -- a complete move. Most people. The biggest problem people have as they sliced the ball and the biggest reason lines because they get nervous or tight. And then they shorten up there are all start. They don't make turn right so to me that's that's what I'd say this is my favorite.
