  1. So true about the ball flight laws. Instant amnesia would be good sometimes.
  2. I have just been reflecting on my last year's golf performance and I had a question pop into my head... "What would I do differently if I had to start again?" I thought it was an interesting question so I'd like to hear what others would do if they had to start again but keeping your current knowledge. If I were to start again I would be way less technical. I would focus on a few fundamentals of the swing and just go and play without filling my head with technical do's and don't's. I would also pick one shape of shot and focus on hitting that over and over again. That for me would be a fade because I've suffered with hook problems over the course of my playing career. What would you do differently if you had to start again?
  3. That's fine, if you're in position to do it. That may not match what you're doing. Hypothetical. You have too much extension in left wrist in transition. You're a 3 and can hit it well. That forces some pivot stall and hand action at the bottom. That first dril....total distaster for you. If you flexed your left wrist more, that would have the body react and hands would Work more up and left. You can't just say I want more body, less hands and swing more left in a vacuum. I like what this guy has to say about hand action:
  4. Found this: This is the sort of thing I was after. And found this as well:
  5. One of my big swing faults is overactive hands through the hitting area. So in the new year I want to focus on once and for all taking my hands out of the release and releasing more with the body and swinging more left. So can I please have suggestions for drills and/or gadgets to help me practice this, particularly at speed. For chip and pitch shots I can take my hands out of things quite successfully but for irons and drivers my hands are as active as ever. Thanks!
  6. Great, thanks for that suggestion. I remember looking at that some time ago but didn't like the stack and tilt aspect of it. I guess, apart from that there is some solid stuff there. Thanks again.
  7. I am 39. I have been playing since a kid. I was much better than I am now but I kept it much more simple. Now I know too much and have become overly technical. Then when I go more "natural" I just get loose and sloppy. I'm looking for the middle ground with some good swing fundamentals that I don't deviate from. Not setup related. My setup is good as has been verified by numerous pro's.
  8. It's not. I have too much going on in my head. I just want to simplify things by having some solid fundamentals to work on.
  9. Awesome! Just what I was looking for. I'll work on that. Thanks!
  10. There must be tour fundamentals. For example, tush line. Do most/all tour pro's keep there tush line or do most lose it. Another example is head movement. Do most/all tour pro's keep there head movement (horizontally) to within 2-3 inches or do most move it much more than that. I said in my original post this: "Look at Jim Furyk's swing and Tiger Woods swing. A big difference in "method's" there but what is the commonality?" I'm not talking about grip differences. I'm not talking about setup differences. You say there are things that most do (I would call those tour fundamentals), so what are they?
  11. Sorry, who? :-) It's a guy who was banned, I think, who used to claim he could make anyone into a great golfer in about 10 mjnutes. Lot of agreement between iteach and monte here. Tyler Ferrell too. These are guys who see the swing thru best technology, great eyes and lots of smarts. Thanks for the clarification. Not looking to improve in 10 minutes. I just want a proven set of fundamentals to follow.
