For the last few weeks I've been having a ball striking feast. Hitting the ball better than I ever have. Today I went out and couldn't do anything right. Push, hook, slice, top - you name it. I have been playing a lot of Tiger Woods 10 with the Wii motion plus (awesome game). I think I've been playing it so much, that I've incorporated my Wii swing into my real swing. I really do think so.

I don't really fully understand the reason for this post, other than I think it's somewhat humorous. Has anyone else ever felt this way? At least I broke 60 the other day...in the video game, of course.

I can understand it completely.

I had the same thoughts concerning the Wii and TW games. Kinda makes me glad I don't own one.

Just like anything else it will become muscle memory. Having said that I haven't played the game but I doubt a person wants to incorporate a "Wii swing" into their real swing, which could very well happen if you play it very much.

I can't imagine swinging a shaft-less light weight wii remote would negatively impact your golf swing. Mentally, they are two completely different things and I don't find it hard to treat it as such.

Case in point: My Tiger 2010 handicap is scratch. My real handicap...

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
