I’ve made $11.5 million in PGA Tour earnings—but not by worrying about achieving textbook swing positions. I did it by learning how to get specific results: power draws, high cuts, high-spinning wedges and more. My big secret to hitting those shots? Powerful visual cues that show me how to correctly use the club. Certain images can unlock the techniques needed to hit great shots. Here are seven visuals—such as smearing paint across the target line—that translate into big drives, laser-like irons, an end to slicing—and many more strokes of genius. If a picture’s worth a thousand words, then a swing picture is worth a thousand strokes.
