  1. I had a lot of success with it when it first came out. I've tried to go back to it a few times since without much luck. I'd say its a way to play without having to keep your right knee flexed on backswing. The fact that you hear little about it now means its hardly the answer for everyone.
  2. Is he going to look at your swing? Mark is TPI guy and is excellent at determining if physical limitations are causing issues with your swing and recommending work arounds/corrective action.
  3. Just came across one and have been playing around with it...dug up this old thread. It does more than just help with the release and be a weighted club warm up club. I noticed it forces you into a neutral position at the top (face not opened or shut). I might use it daily for a while and see what happens...
  4. sorry.. just realized the title says "right thumb".. its my left thumb. thanks
  5. My left thumb hurts in the middle (by the joint) when i hit the ball. Not sure if i injured it or something off with my grip or technique. Doesn't hurt when I'm not playing. I’d say my grip is pretty neutral. Thanks
  6. > @aubie6 said: > I have been through a fitting and it definitely helped me understand the importance of a good set-up. I am a 9 which is the highest level of an upper-core player. When you go through the fitting it is eye opening when you realize how out of balance you can be by just having your feet 2 inches out of your optimal number. It is not cheap but it will most assuredly help you achieve better results. Aubie, as an upper core player, what elements of your swing did change? From what I see, upper core players have weaker grips, more bend at address and less hip rotation at impact. Also appears downswing is on a steeper plane..
  7. Get greedy.. don't settle for par and bogey when you have a good round going..
  8. I'm intrigued by Wright Balance Golf as well.. Anyone get tested and follow tthis?
  9. I really like this guy's content.. https://www.alistairdaviesgolf.com/
  10. Here is a similar drill.. interesting that Nobilo says this is what the pros feel...
  11. Interesting about the hands..one of the problems I fight in my normal swing is my hands moving out towards the ball on the downswing.. heel hits. that's not going to happen when you are balancing on your right foot on your toe. Another feel it really promotes in hitting into a firm left side, which again you have to do or lose your balance.
  12. thats how it feels.. like just my arms are moving and I really hit into a left leg.. Anyone teach this method or have I just been doing too much?
  13. Not sure.. my big miss is usually a push block right, feel like I'm late with the club head. then the adjust is to overcook and pull hook... With this drill i feel like I can go after it pretty hard and the face squares nicely...
  14. Pretty much stock distance with a baby draw.. I know, I should just play like this but I'm trying to incorporate the feel into my golf swing. He talks about posture and spine angle but my big takeaway is feeling more compact, armsy and hitting into my right side. I think maybe my hips open up to soon on my normal swing? Welcome comments..

[/quote]No major offense here, and I'm fairly natural on Peter Kostis and have not seen the book, but why do you only come out of the wood work when golf books are brought up, and you seem to either toot your own horn or hate on the rest. Guess I'm just confused why this is worth your while. Carry on….. [/quote] "hate on the rest" ??? I believe this is the only instruction book that I have spoken against on this forum. It's probably been 15 years since I read it. Maybe I will get it out and see if I can think of any redeeming qualities for all of the errors and misleading statements that I have highlighted. Waste more time on it??? Not a chance. Again, this is only my opinion. I hope I will not need to post again in this thread. [/quote] curious what you didn't like about it.. IMO, one of the rare books (along with 5 lessons) that talks about the proper hand action through impact.
