I've always thought that I was a "feel" player for shorter length shots..........Meaning, I didn't care what the yardage was, and I didn't want to know. I just saw it and hit it. Now I realize that's poppycock.
Thanks to this technique, and the purchase of a laser rangefinder, I now know that my "full swing" pitch with this technique is about 40-45 yards.
That would be really hard for some people to say. CONGRATS.
My full swing pitch is right on 35 Yards. If I choke down to the end of the grip - 25. Varying the backswing amount to specific points has given me other stock distances that are repeatable....'feel' for the fine tuning when in between. It's still not 'mechanical' since the 'feel' part is repeating that feel for those shots, but it's just more accurate and repeatable. Crazy, isn't it? It's great to go to the range, and see a chipping/pitching basket out there and really feel like I can hit it on the first shot rather than having to dial it in over a few shots.
This video from these guys really was a huge win for me. I'm grateful.
