The Bangor Daily News is posting on its website (new.bangordailynews.com) a series of video golf tips from local pros to aid golfers with basic instruction.
This week’s guest pro is Mark Hall, a longtime Bangor-area pro who gives lessons at Pine Hill Golf Club in Brewer and also works at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Bangor.
Long irons can be difficult to hit for most players, but there are alternatives. Hall shows how to hit fairway woods and hybrid clubs smoothly.
