between understanding what is happening and micromanaging positions and movements.
Actually, for the golfer, there should not be a fine line. The fine line is what the instructor has to walk in order to make it easier for the golfer to self diagnose and rectify.
I get better at this every day and continue to try and get better.
It’s a different issue withe every student and I explain the same issue differently to different students.
Let’s say student X gets in front of the ball with the upper body.
It is not helpful to most (although it is to some) to know all of the body angle and path issues that this creates.
So, I have a understanding of their misses and a dialogue with the person and it comes down to something like this.
“If you start having deep divots with irons and week push fades with driver, just feel a greater sense of tilt at impact.”
My goal is to make it this easy for every golfer who comes to me.
