I agree with you about your characterization of the show, but not about the commercials... Have you ever heard of a device called a DVR, so you can fast-forward through the commercials. I never watch TV live anymore, even live sports events! I start an hour later (or sometimes more), and catch up to the live broadcast at the end of the event.
That said, that show is watchable and will be over pretty soon (there are only 5 contestants left) and I will watch every episode to learn more about the whole development process.
What he said! ???. The end goal is to not need the feedback provided by The Chiliwacker with enough reps. After some serious reps- The ball flight and your contact with the ground (divot) should be telling you without the Chiliwacker. But, until it's mastered- it's the best way I have come up with so far after 22 years instructing to 'dictate someone's path'. Thanks guys, Eric C.
PS. I am seeing all your requests for a tripodless version. The committee has been notified. ?
How many hobbies do I have? Too damn many! And golf takes up more than it's fair share of the time! Heck, once I get my bow, shotgun, and rifle sighted in, I'm good to go. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to work for golf!
That's not really playing devil's advocate. Money is an object for many people, and it goes beyond that… most people, most instructors, will almost force "something new" in the lesson. I try not to do that. I've given people free 10-minute refresher lessons and reminded them to practice before coming back the next time when they came for a lesson and were doing the same thing(s).
Golf is also not piano lessons. It takes time to change things. I've been working on a similar thing in my swing for five years now. I check in with @david_wedzik from time to time, every four to six months, but that's about it.
I played piano and the trumpet as a kid. Learning a new piece of music is not the same thing as ridding yourself of a swing fault you've had for 15 years.
I did take piano lessons and was forced to practice 1 hour per day. I hated it because I was forced to practice and didn't put in any effort to really learn. I repeated the same classical music pieces many weeks until it was recognizable as music. When I was older, I took weekly lessons from a different instructor and loved it.
Each individual is different and the time they allow for practice and their dedication will determine the frequency of lessons.
