more posts about my swing. I guess my warning scared people off…LOL
Yesterday’s post was about one thing and one thing only.
The perfection of the back swing and the aesthetics of the finish have replaced impact as the priority in the golf swing with modern golf instruction.
Everyone seems to have that balk move that Mike Weir “revolutionized.”
You see it on every range in America as people watch their practice back swing to make sure every position is perfect.
Never mind that you generally won’t reproduce what you are doing and turning your head to watch it changes the dynamic in the first place.
Throw in a slow pull up into a scratch finish and everyone has the perfect swing but is nowhere near in position just before and at impact.
Here is the link to my swing on youtube.
Look at what someone wrote in the comments. Connection and disconnection is one of the most over rated “positions” in the golf swing. Trying too hard to stay connected gets the club out of position and creates tension. Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk and Fred Couples are real connected, aren’t they?
The point(s)…there are always exceptions, but no one has the perfect swing and striving for that is a joke. Strive for impact and if you have to do something funky to get there…do it. If you are doing something funky that is making good impact difficult…get rid of it.
I am going to start doing some posts and videos on sequence that will help a lot of you.
