I just spent a half hour working with @david_wedzik
, with @iacas
, and oh yeah, another 20 teaching pros watching on!
It was a demo that Dave was giving on instruction techniques, and I was the guinea pig student. @Stretch
is in the hot seat tomorrow.
Actually a lot less nerve-wracking than you might think, due entirely to Dave's patience and easy-going demeanor. Some pics (maybe even video) from Dave to follow, but we only worked on one thing, to get my shoulders and hips turning down and up much more, rather than flat. All to keep me on plane better and to avoid the over-the-top pull I struggle with.
Instant fix? Hell no, I'm not a good enough student for that, but within a handful of swings, even I could see the improvements in my swing. Dave, Erik, and Mike will be happy to know that I spent another hour on the range afterward doing nothing but little 50% punch shots trying to get used to the completely different feel.
Overall, I gained some real insight today, and had fun doing it.
