In this video my first priority is to learn about my accuracy – not to fix it. Fixing can come afterwards, once I can tell the difference between my baseline control swing and my regular swing. I’ve selected specific drills designed to enhance my feel and accelerate my learning process, and I’ll show you exactly how I use them in practice on the range.
In this second practice video I’ll show you the next step in my practice routine as I work on improving driver accuracy by comparing my baseline control swing to my full swing using a specific drill – the Low Energy swing. The key to learning rapidly and effectively is to focus on the process rather than the outcome.
In this video I’ll address a different game issue: determining distances for irons. As you see from the video, my philosophy is to find the average carry yardage for each iron using a full, normal, comfortable swing. The reason I choose the words “normal” and “comfortable” is because these are swings I can make with confidence.
In this video I’ll show you how I structure a practice to address a mechanical issue in my swing. Then I’ll demonstrate a 3-step process for developing a feedback system that allows me to make adjustments to my swing and to know when I am on the right track with the appropriate feedback. This range session combines both Practice and Training.
If you are trying to address an issue with your swing, don’t make the mistake of trying to fix the symptom. Make sure you are addressing the real issue – what I call the “root cause” – because no matter how hard you try, you can’t fix symptoms without addressing the underlying issue.
