Cool episode. I've never actually watched any of their other stuff though.
If I ever make it down to the area, I suppose Tobacco Road is one of those courses I should play at least once in my life. I'm not going to call it a bucket list course, though.
I'll make the argument that a flat shoulder turn with a laid off club at the top doesn't "look" better. If you and your instructor missed it, it suggests that you guys were looking at the wrong things to begin with.
You can absolutely use flawed body movements and still get the club on plane, and even play good golf doing it. They're still compensations. Some people are better at performing them consistently than others.
This was Day 2 in our COVID-19 Practice Plan Challenge:
As someone who has been a high level athlete (Olympic hopeful in 1992) and coach, I have always credited my coaches as performance does not happen in a vacuum. Instead of 5%, I’ll give you “missing link” credit. While about 5% in volume, its value is much more.
This might be the first time I have ever recorded my swing in landscape mode on my phone. I should probably record all my FO swings like this so the clubhead isn't cut off.
Love this drill. I do it a lot in practice. It's kind of my "B" swing when I'm out on the course and not striking the ball well.
