So I had to hit the last 5 range balls I could scrounge up, plus some of the top-flites I keep in my bag in case anybody ever asks to use a golf ball .
On top of all that, I couldn't get comfortable with the drill at all. It felt like I kept bailing out at the last second (before impact) and flipping my wrists, or instead just chunking it. Appears my right heel was still coming off the ground too. What do you think (video below)? I was trying to focus mainly on "loading" my left knee and lowering my arms faster, as instructed.
Haha, Mike has me doing that drill. I'll say this, it was very hard at first, but if you stick with it, and Relax while doing the drill, it becomes Much easier. After doing that drill, guessing about 200 times, I can get good contact about 80% of the time now. Kinda funny, people at the range look at me like I'm Crazy, spending good $$$ for balls, yet only hit them about 25 yds most of the time.
When I do miss, or make lousy contact, it's usually because I tried to hard. I do 99% of mine with my 8i...Keep at it..
