Quick Recap and Progress
Last week, Rob showed me my obvious flip at the ball so it gave me something to work on at home. I tried working on the drills indoor at home and I find it’s pretty hard to tell- I can always bring the club back with plenty of forward shaft lean if I swing in super-slow-motion but when I feel confident and try to record a full speed swing, I still couldn’t get the hands back in front of my body- it is trailing way too far behind me and now, I see pretty clearly I have to flip at the ball to have any chance at not catching the ball with a wide open face.
Today, Rob was a lot more demanding- I guess the pleasantries were over and it’s time to get down to business. I warmed up with an 8 iron and he started keying on one of my more obvious faults- one which I’ve been fighting since I’ve started this game.
I can’t seem to help but start the back swing with my hands, suck the club to the inside, and feel like my power comes from swinging the club around behind me. So much so that my elbows is way behind, outside of my torso at the top of my backswing.
