Take Swing Changes to the Course

If I had a dollar for each time a golfer has said, “I’m great on the range, but I just can’t take it to the course” I’d be a wealthy man! I believe there are multiple reasons for this quandary many find themselves in. Firstly, most golfers don’t know how to practice in order to simulate an on-course environment and secondly it’s because when most golfers work on technical changes they don’t know how to go about assimilating the new moves into a full speed swing. Today we are going to address this important topic: How to take ownership of swing upgrades. Watch…

A few key points:

Use a 7 or an 8 iron

Use an alignment aid

Incorporate multiple rehearsals between each shot (get the FEEL!)

Level 1

Technical, slow , tedious and deliberate

Ball on a tee

Feel the positions

Incorporate pauses in the motion

Lots of rehearsal

Soft, tapping little shots

Level 2

Blend in rhythm

Slow motion without any pauses

Ball on starts a tee and then we get it on the ground

Lots of rehearsal between each shot

Shots will not go very far

Level 3

Start off at about 3/4 speed

Ball on the ground

Slowly build up to 100% speed

Continue to make rehearsals between each shot

Keep in mind that objective of any technical swing work is to upgrade the mechanics while still operating at full, or perhaps even, faster speed. It’s also important to note that this method of practice only addresses the technical side. There is so much more required in order to take it to the course and that’s why I often talk about…
