I don’t get it…


Recommended Posts

So my arm felt better today… knee is ok…

so you know me, went to the range to celebrate. Started off with my new tempo swing, which I quickly abandoned.

I started trying to hit each club as hard as I could…. They all went on my intended line, and far.  Better contact… I’m talking like 115% swing. Wind assisted 300 yard hybrid %… 

Do I swing like that all the time?  Results say yes. I feel better too.

Dr. Sasho Mackenzie did a study with golfers across a range of handicaps and all golfers were found to be more accurate when swinging faster than when trying make a “fairway finder” swing

It's all about doing it without thinking about doing it. If you can stay out of your own way and fire away like that do it.

Short game will be an issue.  But I’m not going to hold back.  I was swinging faster like this back in June.  Not sure why I thought I needed to change something… it definitely was not broken.

I don't have a 115% swing.  😔

I found it out of disbelief today.  That my “good swing” was terrible.  So I just said full send mode.

It has to be the ugliest thing on earth… left foot slides backwards. Feels like my trail arm is above my head… but it works, and I don’t care what it looks like. Haha.

I was trying to slow down to prolong my golf life, but it seems like this has the opposite effect on me.

It's like the drive you crush after hitting a ball OB. Free flowing, no thoughts, just hit it hard. Not sure I'd do this long term, as you might re-injure yourself, but you might want to film yourself and analyze any differences between an 80% swing and a 115% swing. I watched a Nick Faldo? video where he recommended taking a few free wheeling practice swings and then stepping up and hitting quickly before you can think about how you're swinging.

Had a choice today.....hard 7 or an easy 6 to the par 3 ... opted to go with the hard 7, hit it 12 feet behind the pin and drained the putt.  I can't do that with my driver though.  If I get out of tempo and rythm, I'm all over the map.

I am not so sure everyone would agree that if we are hurting that we should swing as hard as we can!!  My back hurt just reading it!!🤨

Mine feels better than swinging easy.  So do my shoulders.

I’ve had ankle issues all year from trying to swing too hard … rolling to back of my left foot. Is there a difference between swinging fast & swinging hard trying to kill it? I’m going to rethinK my tempo & give fast swing a try … but I still believe someone can make a fortune with a golf lobotomy eliminating the kill thought.

Swinging fast and swinging hard are 2 different things. I find it difficult to sequence properly if I’m not swinging close to all-out. It’s what makes my driver essentially a driving range only club.

Maybe what I'd heard or read in the past is derived from that -- I'd heard or read that all ams should *always* make their full swings at full speed .. on all clubs until you get down to the wedges and the finesse / touch shots. If the distance you need is in-between clubs you should take the longer club and grip down 1/2" or 1", whatever depending, and still make a full speed full swing.

I should listen to my advice!!! Yesterday my worst shots were a few full swing irons I attempted to hit "..a little softer"............... 🤦‍♂️

I'm sure that is a swing that you practice regularly...  NOT!

I'm with you - the word I always try to use is aggressive.  When I do try to really bomb one off the tee, I'm usually out of sequence and tempo.   When I think "good aggressive swing with a balanced finish" it usually works out pretty well.
