We got in about 45 minutes after I landed.
We talked about how his lack of left arm rotation off the ball was causing a chain reaction of ugliness.
Frank is very much a feel and perception player and he didn’t think he was “not doing” that, but once he got a feel for it, it really opened things up.
What made absolute sense to him was how his arms should link up on the downswing. Immediately after we discussed how the right elbow needs to link up in front of the right hip, it all made sense and he began to pure it.
His shift and turn began to control the action. For him the feel is not getting the hips forward or bumping, it’s the right knee getting to the ball before the club.
More importantly it felt good.
It freed up his hips and he went from pulling the handle on every swing on Monday, to now he is only pulling about 1 out of 5.
In his feels, pulling the handle is the arms got too fast. Right now we are feeling out language and interpretation.
He understands his swing very well and how it’s supposed to work and he has been taught some some nasty ideas…and like me, he assumed it was correct and lost his feel for what’s right for him.
I know exactly what he needs to do. He now trusts that I know what I am talking about and he can implement things immediately. The only possible failure is my inability to communicate things to him properly.
