    Onscreen text: Irons: Your Approach Michael Block PGA Professional

    Michael Block: All right, so one of the biggest differences between an amateur and professional is that during their setup, an amateur is solely focused in on the ball. As they walk up, they're staring at the ball. I'm not sure what you're staring at, but you're staring in this little circle here. And you're getting worried and you're thinking about, oh, everything that you shouldn't be. And you're staring at it. And the whole time, and you might just peek for a second at your target, but you're just staring at that ball, which is not good.

    Michael Block: Now, professionals—watch the next time you watch an event on TV. Where are they looking? Much different. They're looking at their target. They walk up looking at their target. They set up to the golf ball, eyes at the target. Grip it, still at the target, and then they pull the trigger. Next time you're out playing golf, try this, and I promise you, it will help.
