Yup, just getting the steps 1 - 3 right will take time & persistence.   But as I said, they were things I've worked on before, one time or another.   I have a habit of dropping practice on specific item as soon as I feel I've got better.   Then, before I know it, it returns to bite me.   Anyway, this time, I am keeping the drills for good.

 

Just a reminder, they're called KEYS, not steps ;-)

If anything, some of those good ones surprised me because they felt exactly the same. 

 

Yeah it's not just you, it's you, me, Tiger Woods, the good ones and the bad ones are almost perfectly identical. The bad ones may not "feel" as good because contact isn't great and the strike doesn't sound solid.

Before today's round, I took some practice swings with 1-3 "Keys" in mind.   This has been my routine for the past few rounds.  Today, I had my personal best of 8 GIRs :banana:

Has anyone ever had friends or students who were simply unable to break old swing habits while trying to learn a single key or fundamental? I'm talking about someone who could be competitive in most other sports, in average physical condition, average intelligence (might be a stretch) and willing to put forth the effort and time.

 

Maybe I should have started a new thread, but I thought it might be an appropriate question here.

82 today with 7 GIRs.  Getting back to where I was 8 months ago when I was carrying 12 HI.  Thanks, mvmac.

I haven't.

 

If you can't improve at a Key, you're not practicing it properly (or you've improperly identified something).

Maybe it's time I consider a couple lessons again.

After 3 weeks (6 rounds) of good play, this weekend scores were terrible.  I went home and checked my swing again.   My left wrist was not flat at top, and was bent at impact.  Clearly, back of my left hand isn't pointing to target at impact.   No wonder so many of par 3 tee shots were going way left.    Coupled that with occasionally forgetting to shift my body resulted in bad weekend of golf.   The frustrating thing is, it took 3 rounds of golf and checking my swing at home to realize what I was doing wrong.   It's going to take some time to get 1st three of the 5SK right.
