This last video shows how much easier it is to make solid contact in chipping and pitching when you allow the release to happen.
This video is the most helpful of the five, as short game is where most of the shots are saved at any skill level. If anyone, after watching the first four days, watches this and still feels widening the arc and/or lagging the club on the way down is the way to do it…I am not ever going to convince them that it is a more difficult way to play.
I touch on it briefly in the video, but I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a consistent move from driver all the way down to the shortest chips.
The club and setup dictate different shots, but the mechanics of the swing should be essentially the same. It only makes sense that the more consistent your swing is through the bag, the easier it is to repeat the motion and the less different things you have to practice.
If you only have a few hours, or even just one hour to practice a week…or even a month..how are you building a repeatable motion when you float load and hold the lag on driver for distance (which obviously won’t work on short shots) and then use a completely different motion to hit a 5-iron, a 7-iron out of the trees and a 30 yard pitch? The answer is you can’t, so you must find a similar motion for every shot and just adjust the setup to dictate the shot.
