Todays Session 8-4-20
GOALS: Main goal is to face a more open face in backswing-then close face on downswing.
SETUP: Weaker grip, neutral shaft lean
BACKSWING: Steep shoulder turn (lead shoulder down, trail hip up). With some leaning tower
DOWNSWING: Close face on way down with wrist bow. Go “up” with lead side to eliminate too much shaft lean.
Overall very good session. Was really able to build off of success yesterday.
Decent setup. Grass was wet, was guarding against slipping. I’ll make sure ball is farther forward next time.
Happy with shaft lean at impact.
With 3 hybrid-Misses were not duck-hooks or slices. They were high hooks. I’m making progress.
Next session I will move to clubs higher than 3H.
It’s not. “THE” ball is defined separately. Thus it supersedes other definitions. The club you’re using to hit the shot isn’t “an object” either or you wouldn’t be allowed to set that down behind the ball either.
Hell my putter has little lines on it. Oh no, objects that help with alignment.
What’s frustrating here is that you cited “spirit of the rules” and yet you seem to try so hard to ignore not only the “spirit” (which doesn’t exist) but the rules as actually written.
I really wasn’t sure what my expectations of LSW were. I had heard a decent bit about it, but it almost always seemed to be about shot zones and separation value (incredibly useful things in their own right). However, this book is just chock-full of incredibly useful information not only on how to be a better golfer during my next round but also how to go about building a comprehensive practice plan as well as much more technical wisdom than I had thought.
Incredibly good read. My only lamentation is not grabbing it earlier.
