I digress, let me re-phrase my original post. During transitions on the practice range, going from a full swing to 3/4 or less swing my tempo, arc, hand position at impact appear to be thrown off by either adrenaline, exhaustion, or something from a 90% full swing. What would cause that?
Thanks for the response!
Not sure that is how you apply the "feel isn't real" concept. The feel you are referring to is more like "touch." That statement, to me at least, is talking about the relationship between what your body is doing and what you think your body is doing during your golf swing. Different concepts.
I would recommend not blocking everything together like that. Don't chip and pitch for 20 minutes, then hit 50 full shots for 20 minutes, then go back to chipping. Mix it all up and change clubs a lot. After all, that's how you play.
When I get in a groove on the range hitting 15 6-irons in a row I can sometimes look like a scratch golfer. Sadly, on the course however, I never get the opportunity to hit 15 6-irons in a row from one spot.
