I kind of wondered about the logical fallacy of trying for a 3 foot circle? At least the way we implemented it, it seemed like it was a mental game you play on yourself to alleviate some of the pressure in putting into a tiny hole. I'll have to ask the instructor the specifics of that next time I see him, because that seemed odd to me as well.
Grip adjustment for the seven thousandth time... left hand slightly weaker and more in the fingers if both hands. It's so hard for me make this change stick for a couple of reasons, but I think this time I'm going to get it, because I was able to do this:
Not across the line at A4, bowed wrist with shallow shaft through the downswing, and more stable clubface through the hitting zone (less forearm roll).
This is the first time I've ever seen myself swing with a bowed left wrist at A6 without the clubhead being 6" behind my hands which I think has a lot to do with what I've been working on with keeping the arms in front of me and not getting so deep.
Just as an additional feel, the left arm is dead, passive, whatever; all I feel it's doing is holding onto the grip. The right arm is the primary arm in the swing.
Pretty excited about this. I can make this move and I can make it at speed. Now it's just a matter of repetition until it becomes permanent.
