My Swing (techforay) - Page 2

This allows me to get that key down faster than skipping around to other keys/issues. Once I can swing and not move my head all over consistently, I'll then move to key #2, rinse and repeat, and so on.

 

I'm sure Dave, Erik, Mike and all the instructors have found that focusing on one thing at a time produces better results, I know it did for me, and I still practice Key# 1 all the time. Hope that answers your question.

 

Good post, very much agree. Good thread about how to go about practicing.

To help with this bending and stretching I would recommend flaring both feet out at address, helps do the knee linkage stuff on the backswing and helps your flex the left knee forward longer on the downswing.

 

 


I have been working on this for a couple of weeks now and i dont seam to be getting anywhere.  I get up and do a practice swing and the divot is going the correct direction and looks like i would hit ball first.  When i swing at the ball the divot is always going from out to in and is usually too far behind the ball.  This would explain the slice and poor distance.  Can someone give me some pointers or some good drills\practices to gain some ground on that issue. Maybe someone will suggest something the resonates with me.

If I had to guess, you're just making full swings trying to "do" or "feel" something.
