Its about how consistent you are to make the ball go where you want it as often you can. Preference: all the time. You can measure that with dispersion, greens and fairways hit, Moe Norman was a 80%+ with those stats, that how good ball striker he was.
If I am right, then Hans take up such mantle to become one of the best ball strikers this game have seen since Ben Hogan and Moe Norman. That is, if I am right. Maybe I should stay you know silent and not say anything as some would say it can be later used against me, its like my swing, its out there and will be even when I have a great swing. Naturally, some will say but if that was you swinging like that then, how come you don’t suck now?
Ever seen Michael Jackson dance at age 4? No? because he likely sucked at it also.
Its like that for us all, we just suck at it from the start. Now if we do play golf like I done for 20 years now and off, and then study it as I done and then once defined start to work the definitions, then what?
People will judge you based upon what you accomplished as far not what you will accomplish.
So whenever someone complains, I ask did you study what I am doing the practice for? no?
if you look at me on the putting green you think I suck at putting as I am practicing how to become better, some might come and look and say, but you don’t make any putts? I smile and say, I know. I taught Hans to do the same, he make more putts now. I make pros better and those guys are easier to work with than Larry as he is 67 years old and done the same swing for decades. I done mine for 20+ years.
Anyhow, consistency in ball striking the 0-4% dispersion I may or may not reach, I don’t know as I am working the swing at my home to finalize the concept I have at address, at the back swing and the down swing. I don’t guess, I don’t like guessing, I calculate and make models, those once I know the variables works. Its due to the calculations are based on variables I know about and obviously if there are such I am not aware off then once known then I update the model, no guessing.
Main difference between an amateur and a tour pro is they already understand how to make impact work, an amateur don’t. Its one thing I found the last time I was indoor, I made ball contact first, and I knew I could do it every time, felt good. Then as I work and update my own body to swing better I check my indoor swings vs a visual template (Hans) and what happens in the motion and its improving.
However this is funny how it works, once you guide the individual to become better to do what works something interesting happens. It’s a compound effect, its subtle and its there.
Larry now have the swing system in place. Its all there.
Its like when I point out to Hans, so more focused now, more better concentration? He looks up and says, hum what, ah yes seems so. I do that to remind him about what is happening when he does things right. Unless you know how it works when it works your likely to just not get it yet but then once you do understand, then it just works.
The problem with this is naturally for many a lack of progress and success. It can be frustrating especially when you cant do it. I still struggle with this, I still tends to do something that I am working to get in line as soon as I get there, then I know.
Hans is rather easy, he been with me for a while and he is good following instructions. The new instruction set also makes him a ball striker awesome legendary so. I have no idea what he will be able to do with it but its fun waiting also.
I swing indoors a bit today, naturally I cant swing as natural as outdoors and I miss hitting balls. It’s a good way to check the motion though. I took two images from 2 days ago and today and they were identical. Not good. I expected progress a bit. I then adjusted as I wanted to see difference.
the shape of release seems fine. Nice figure 7 there.
adjustment did lead to progress and its like this bang to the head sometimes when you understand, ah.
I built a new concept for Larry, and since its all new its like everything else, we need time for the brain to build neurons, pathways to build the new context. As long we got the foundation there, time is needed and varied practice.
