I am working with Frank this week in Vegas.
The hard part about getting better at golf is knowing where in the chain of events to attack the problem.
I used to think just attack what happens first, but that sometimes isn’t where the problem lies.
The human brain is a wonderful, yet awful thing.
You tell one person to swing left and around more and they come over the top, while the next guy will shallow the club perfectly.
Sometimes, just a perception change is all that is needed to line everything up, while other times it is a step by step process where you have to knock down one domino at a time…and it isn’t until the sixth one that the chain of dominos all fall.
The point is this whole theory of zeroing out positions turns out to be an even worse idea than I previously thought.
Frank is having trouble with his chipping. His feels were backwards to what was actually happening.
So I told him to do what was technically the opposite of correct and it lined him right up.
So between “feel isn’t real” and zeroing out positions golf instruction, it’s no wonder handicaps haven’t come down with all this great new equipment.
