Thanks - was only practicing this technique for 3 hrs N Texas in great weather yesterday.
It took a while to put all the parts together - I typically will make all the errors - too much swing, not enough hinge, forget to pivot around, get too quick - crap, I hate looking like I don't know what I'm doing - blading the ball across the green.
And to say my lies were tight is an understatement - like the grass received a very close shave. Unforgiving.
After working out the kinks above and having my 6 yr old doing the "tug the club" to help me float the club, the last part was soft and relaxed arms, and keeping the front knee bent on the pivot around. I had to work on the speed - hinge, hesitate, pivot with some speed to get the club going.
Do y'all talk about speed? because it seems like a slow swing on video but when doing it, I've got to feel something faster - momentum building.
Still, I was inconsistent - some beauties with nice floating height of 6-8 feet, and then some with 3 feet of height - ouch - although softening the arms and hesitating when the hinge was done before coming down to the ball, was a typical answer, but still... I will try a little more forearm rotation while hinging.
