How to find your swing

I have a simple concept for you to find your swing. As i said yesterday, it’s not a pin hole, it’s window and here is how to be in the window.

Eliminate excess movements and don’t restrict any movements. Those are the two extremes you want things to be in between.

You don’t need to ask for examples, you know the answers to all of them.

    In others words. don’t add any funky moves to what happens naturally

    “You don’t need to ask for examples, you know the answers to all of them.”

    This might be true if you learned to swing by following Harry Vardon’s regimen of swinging a club for a few months without a ball. Then, you would know how to do it, but you couldn’t explain it.

    However, if you tried to do things the “right” way, by reading a golf book first (worse yet, several books), then you are contaminated, and you might spend years…or decades…unlearning things.

      How about this: forget all you learned from books and magazines and videos, and even… past teachers.

      Then just learn the grip and basic posture, but don’t feel as though they are ironclad rules for your particular situation so you can adjust them as you feel like later on.

      Then go watch the plane and release by feel video as though you were a complete golf neophyte and start from there (without hitting a ball for a good while).

    –Eh, maybe hypnotism would work: “You will not remember straight left arm…you will not resist with your hips…you will not hold the lag…you will not hit against a firm left leg…you will not attempt to have an out-of-body experience and try to imagine how you look to an outside observer while using all 650 skeletal muscles in 1.3 seconds…”

      Hmm…I think a better approach would be: pizza tastes good, but not the stuffed crust kind I find those detestable. some mashed potatoes would go pretty good with the pizza alongside a cherry phosphate. what am I doing with a golf club in my hands again?

        The club is overrated. You really can’t see anything except the face at address, then it disappears, and it shows up at impact, and you can’t see it there either.

    I must disagree with that – the feel of the club in your hands, and the influence of its weight on your body throughout the swing are invaluable training aids. The visual aspect is the least important and is the main problem with trying to train oneself through the draw lines videos out there.
