Reviewed my first lesson from Stephan regarding my pitching, and all I have to say is wow.. really, you don't know what it is that you don't know until someone who knows what the heck they are talking about explains it to you.
Obviously priorities first.
1. Weak Grip (was mentioned by Erik before, but reinforced by Stephen), I think the big issue here is really now I will be going from strong grip with the full swing to weak grip for pitching and putting.. Is this usual? (By the way changing to a weaker grip wasn't really a big deal to me, as that is how I was griping the club all the time before now)
2. My stance - no shaft lean at address, level shoulders & the club bounce basically laying on the ground instead of the leading edge.
I practiced the same night, but took it to the course the next day, and I have to say the results were great compared to before.
@sk golf I think the main question that I have is that I know this method I am going to be working on is mainly for high shots, and I will go ahead and send a new video as soon as I can, but what is the distance limit for me to attempt this shot? Or should I just do a trial and error with both my 60* and 56* to figure out where I can use this?
I basically tried this shot when ever I was with in 30 yards or so.. I really only had 4 bad shots with it today, but I also had some great shots and even got out of the bunker with it with a pro like trajectory (still ended up bogying the hole because of 3 putts) :)
Good news is that I don't even think about my full swing at all (maybe it is a good thing for now), so after a few rounds I will record again because that will really be my natural swing, and then I will start up again by sending to Evolvr to see where I stand.. I'm still going to work at home at trying to get my shoulder down so that my head doesn't pop up on the backswing!
I can probably keep going, but the only thing I want to add is that I am still not seeing the improvement in my score, and with implementing so many changes and using different pitching techniques over the past 3 weeks doesn't help. I think since I just started this new change with @sk golf I will see a much more consistent approach from close by, and this should really help keep my score down since for now I'm pretty comfortable with putting (except the 3 putt mentioned earlier, but who misses a 1 footer I mean come on?) :)
