Players angry, consider skipping Open Championship after R&A hands down strict COVID regulations
Some are considering a boycott of the prestigious event and others are simply miffed by the regulations.
What do you think about the COVID Protocols at the 2021 Open Championship?
I'll get things started. I voted "YES" they are going too far. What is the point of telling players, coaches & caddies that have been living in close proximity for months and most have been vaccinated they cannot share accommodations? And at the same time allowing @ 80% capacity for fans? Do testing, etc. similar to the PGA Tour, it seems to have prevented any massive outbreaks for quite some time. They also claim requirements are for Contact Tracing, if you know who is in the house, RV, etc. Contact Tracing should not be that hard. By making them separate they may actually increase the number of people they come in contact with.
Scott kinda has two drills right now. The downswing one is:
Get to A6 and stop, but make sure he's over his left ankle.
EXPLODE the left knee to kick the hip up and back/around while making everything rotate HARD from there.
The left knee delivers the arms to the ball because the hips rotate, so the chest rotates, etc.
This is purely my own thought process.. so take it with a spoonful of salt.. lol.
I think the mini pump drill you are doing from A4 to A5 with the very active right wrist extension is doing a bit too much with hands too early in the downswing. IMO it makes for a handsy impact, which makes you hang back a bit at impact.
I think the pump drill should lead with your right elbow instead of your right wrist from A4 down. It will be good feel for you to lead a tad more with your lower body into and through impact.
Of course, I am guilty of this myself.. so just sharing.
