If it feels good hitting the ball, doesn’t hurt your body and you get good results…at the very least you are close to “your” swing…in spite of what is “correct.”
To be redundant, it’s about eliminating what is getting in your way, not trying to do what is correct.
Some of you are going to say, “I can’t look at it that way, how do I know…X…Y…Z?”
This brings me back to one point that seems to separate me from most teaching pros.
Most believe finding the problem is easy and the fixes are complex.
I find the opposite. Since everyone is different, finding the problem…the singular problem that needs to be addressed first…the one that creates a domino affect of improvement…is difficult. Once you find this creating the fix is easy.
That is where my teaching and blog articles come in. I propose issues, I propose them in different ways until one clicks for each individual and that starts the ball rolling, so to speak.
Many of you think improving your game is like being Sisyphus (LINK).
It seems like it will be for all eternity, but once you get that boulder to the peak and nudge it over…it’s all good from there.
Now if you are like me and have corrupted your swing with all sorts of mainstream cliches, then the process is a bit more arduous…but far from hopeless. It is still about doing what your body wants to do naturally and eliminate what prevents you from doing that.
I will continue to say two things.
1. You are not supposed to do everything I suggest here.
2. I firmly believe that if you read this blog, get involved with discussions and pick things that make SIMPLE sense to you and try them…you will get better.
