Was having trouble slicing my driver and 3 wood. Swing coach said I was going a little outside, with my face square to my body, but open to the swingpath.
His fix was overly simple, worked extremely well so far, and he says my swing with the woods is looking way better.
The fix? Move my rear foot back about 2 inches (not wider, back from the ball). I drove the last two rounds better then I ever have. I was no longer scared to pull my driver out of the bag, because I knew I was playing a small fade with good contact. So, is this a legitimate way to fix a swing problem, or is it it just masking an inherent flaw. I would much rather fix the flaws than hide them. I even matched my best ever round of 78 doing this.
So what do the teaching pro's think? Is this ok? Or is it hiding a bigger a problem? Or is that really the fix to what was a minor problem?
