Well you can’t really count 2020 as it was just a cluster f*** like most sports and everything else. Nonetheless it’s a lot more than just getting the best players...which they don’t really. A lot goes into the building of a college football team. Hell OhioSt had a massively good recruitment and still got their asses handed to them by Alabama. But...they also humiliated Clemson. So I thought there was some good football played despite the Covid mess.
Have a lesson in a week, and it's not clear if my priority piece is going well or not. Recent rounds and practices have been rough with regards to ball striking, really not knowing where the ball is going to go. But I've felt like this before, and usually at some point things click and start coming together.
Went back and reviewed some notes from previous lessons and hit some balls with those concepts and was hitting it pretty well. Then worked on my current priority piece with lots of slow rehearsals between balls and started to feel some progress. Still not great.
Yesterday’s Session 1-18-21
LOWER BODY: Flow, internal rotation of trail hip
TRANSITION: Drop arms down and deep
P5 - FINISH: Do not use right hand to help club, use body pivot
3/4 of session was 2 part drill. 1/4 slow swings
7i SLOW SWINGS
GOAL 1: Lower Body
I achieved my 2” of lateral hip bump, and kept my trail knee facing FO camera. Good
GOAL 2 and 3: Drop arms in transition and pivot through follow through.
I did my drill with a lot of focus. I also think I did a better job of not flipping my right hand at it after P5
Only minor issue was the feeling I hit down and across- like a slicer. . Unsure, maybe because club is so deep? I can’t shake the feeling I need to pivot more “up” instead of “down-left”
Due to dome hours, I cannot have a practice session until the weekend. I will continue mapping at home in the mirror.
