I had a lesson this morning with Julie at Minor Park. I didn’t have anything in particular I wanted to work on but we discovered my wedges and short irons were pulling. I was aiming to the right and turning my shoulders too quick, resulting in a pull 10-15 yards to the left. We fixed my issue with aim. What was left was the fact that I was trying to hit the ball instead of swing the club. It gave me a lot of tension in swing. So Julie had me work on removing the tension in my upper body by focusing it in my legs. I tense up my legs on purpose and that lessens the tension in my arms and shoulders. I also focused on swinging easier. My ball flight straightened out and went much higher. I’m really pleased with the results. It is far from automatic, but I my misses aren’t any worse than before, so it is already better.
I’ll get to test out the changes tomorrow at the AmTour tournament at Falcon Lakes. Wish me luck.
One thought on “Lesson”
Tournament didn’t pan out like I had hoped, finished last in my flight. Oh well, you have a break a few eggs to make an omelet.
