Article: Stop Majoring In the Minors!! Keys To Being A Better Student

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Good piece on helping your instructor help you. Great points on trust and expectations. This point stuck out to me:

 

3. Looks can be dangerous – One of the things that I have learned from teaching with Trackman is that impact alignments are always more important than the look of a swing. 

 

I have mixed feelings about this. Some obvious things like weight forward/extension I can self-diagnose without having to go back to my instructor, but the subtler things, that's where I trust the instructors way more than I do myself.

The problem with articles like this is that they're not an either/or situation. You can get the "looks" via a camera AND the impact alignments (either via watching the ball flight and/or a launch monitor).
