After 4 years I settled down.
I now as I been doing the last 2 months, swing indoors for my self for fun and education. Yes I know winter, cold and windy and the snow? I guess Santa Claus needs his stuff and its not cocaine.
After I define and tested and the model was up and going, then I started to work to go trough this myself, step by step I worked to make it working the way it is for Hans but I am an amateur and not a pro. I then educated myself what I need to do to understand what the golf swing is about to achieve things that work I rather go trough some extra time thanks again for the winter that actually helps a bit. Instead of doing range work I can be inside swinging and educating and who am I kidding with that?
Hitting golf balls is what its about.
It been going a bit faster if range be open but at least I had a few times to check what impact and such is working with my indoor practice. Rebuilding and educating oneself from ground up from scratch to something that will just work I haven’t done such before so I tend to overdo things a bit, working trough things bit by bit and once educated I move on to the next until none more is to do.
Imperfect practice is hard on your psyche, you fail more than you actually succeed. Its why we want to understand why we do things how you can measure progress and check how much better you got.
I run the same program with Larry as I done with Hans, the main difference is Hans had things working, same with me I need to do the same thing I do with Larry myself, yes I know how that is like but at least I understand this a lot better now than I did 2 months ago, and you take note my surge of posts have subsided a bit, slowed down.
A few days ago what I been working on did lead to define the kinetic chain order and why it happens the way it does. Even by itself I don’t need to know that to swing a club or play golf but I am curious to know about this stuff as I often get asked questions and I see others ask other questions that I seem to be able to answer just my explanations might not be in the concept and technique oriented category.
I work the sync and pelvis movements, the arms to be able to timing the action, then release and then what happens when it’s a golf ball there?
Educating myself is a needed thing to do, its like anything we do we spend a lot of time doing what someone else watching me do my work they might think, that guy sucks as he cant make the ball go straight as its all over the map. Putting I don’t make many putts on the practice as I work to improve my skills. The same is true for the golf swing, for me there is no perfect mechanical correct motion, as tempo you can do perfect but motion? I digress.
I find myself question things naturally and also discover why do people teach golf this way they do as it don’t make sense but unless you do what I do that is hard to question hard accepted truth in any field. I ask golfers how they train and it seems to make sense to do it that way but do you get better? Do you measure what is important so you can say, well the last few days I had a golf swing action I say due to the way I measure skills.
Hitting balls is the ultimate feedback though. Spring is early but we are about to go from plus 8 to minus 12 in a day or two here a whole week a 20+ degree difference. Its how it is so we adapt.
I hope the range opens soon even if its not the one I normally practice at but as soon I can swing at balls it be much better improvement.
To educate oneself in the golf swing is a headache as whenever I talk to people its always about a concept and technique, and I say, so what do you feel? and then I often continue with and explain that then? Golfers often cant as they either can just do it or not do it and then they often ask what did I do wrong? I then say, well to even ask that you first got to do things right and your not doing that. Its like a lesser player complain about the clubs, the ball and the grass and Hogan said, unless you go 5 under par a lot your not good enough to complain yet.
I ask, what do I need to do that make me able to do a golf swing and then use it so I can just go play golf the way I want to play it?
Some want distance but they don’t want to do the work required. You need to do things that will make the timing worse for a bit and things that feels strange until your educating yourself what stuff do happen in the swing and then put it together and then it works.
Instead of searching for a perfect mechanical swing why not find one that works and then do learn how to create tempo so you can play consistently?
Its what I educate myself about and once done.
Its hats in the air.
The thing is, how can I think I be able to do this if I never done this before? I never had a golf swing that was like you know good or I never had a tour pro and teach them about the swing either and I never knew how to make a green from 120 yards but now?
Its like anything we do, if you look for things you seem to find them.
Just make sure it’s the thing you do find is the one you desire and want.
