Feel is definitely not real. You are almost never doing what you think you are. Jim Furyk, in his mind, is swinging like Hogan.
The key is to find the feel that produces what you want. A feel that “feels” good and doesn’t produce a nasty outcome.
It couldn’t matter less what feel you use. As long as you are producing the swing and ball flight you want.
That is where trial and error comes in. Instead of using a cookie cutter system and painstakingly trying and produce those movements…find the feel that produces the movements.
For instance, practicing a 90* shoulder turn to the spine in the mirror will help you understand what that feels like.
…or doing my “plane and release by feel” drill to learn what swinging on plane feels like, instead of manually trying to find each position.
Sometimes all you need is to be pointed in the right direction and that is what I am attempting in my daily posts.
